PHOTOS: The cheapest (and most expensive) homes sold in Halton in July

 

It’s still a seller’s market in Halton as the region moved closer to “normalcy” in July amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to TREB (Toronto Real Estate Board), the region as a whole saw a nearly 11 per cent increase in home price compared to July of 2019.

The benchmark sale price of a home in Oakville was over $1.1-million - up 10.29 per cent from a year ago and Milton’s benchmark was $845,900 (up 10.44 per cent).

Burlington and Halton Hills saw the largest gains year-over-year. The benchmark home price was $852,800 (up 11.09 per cent) in Burlington. In Halton Hills, it was $851,500 (up 12.15 per cent).

The numbers are consistent with July being a record-breaking month for Toronto real estate sales, as a nearly 17 per cent price spike did not stop homebuyers from making offers.

"Sales activity was extremely strong for the first full month of summer. Normally we would see sales dip in July relative to June as more households take vacation, especially with children out of school," said Lisa Patel, president of the Toronto Regional Real Estate Board.

The board said 11,081 existing homes changed hands during July, 29.5 per cent more sales than July 2019 and a new record high for the month.

Average home prices are also up 16.9 per cent from a year ago, at $943,710, the board said.

Patel said there is evidence the home market is tightening -- with buyers competing as homes are being sold faster than new listings are added to the market.

With that said, here are the most and least expensive homes sold in the Halton Region last month, according to Zoocasa.
