Home bargains to be found despite hot real estate market in Burlington, Oakville, Milton


Published December 7, 2021 at 9:59 am


The GTA’s late fall housing market has been anything but normal in Oakville, Milton, Burlington and Halton Hills.

While activity typically tapers this time of year due to cooling weather and the impending holiday season, buyers remain in full force, driving sales to a new record for the month and exceeding 2020 levels for the first time since June.

Home prices, meanwhile, continued their stratospheric climb due to a crucial lack of available properties for sale, a trend seen across the Halton regions.

According to information released by the Toronto and Region Real Estate Board, Halton has one of the highest home price point of any GTA market, with an average price tag of $1,356,591, an increase of 27 per cent. But that isn’t stopping an onslaught of buyers who are keen to scoop up low rise homes in residential neighbourhoods.

The more affordable condo segment experienced hot demand last month, as sales rose 39 per cent with 129 units exchanging hands at an average of $688,489.

Here are the least expensive homes sold in Halton during November.
