RAHB REALTORS® RELEASE JUNE STATISTICS PRESS RELEASE – For immediate release July 5, 2018 (Hamilton, Ontario) The REALTORS® Association of Hamilton-Burlington (RAHB) reported 1,257 sales were processed through the RAHB Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) System in June, 14.2 per cent fewer than the same month last year and 19.2 per cent fewer than the 10-year average for the month. All property listings were 19 per cent lower than the same month last year, but 1.1 per cent higher than the 10-year average. Residential sales were 13.7 per cent lower than June of last year, with residential freehold sales 13.3 per cent lower and condominium sales 15.6 per cent lower than the same month last year. “Having a more balanced market this year really showcases how busy the market was for the last few years,” says RAHB CEO George O’Neill. “Sales and listings are down from last year, but they’re being compared to a year impacted by government regulations. The regular spring market pattern has returned this year.” Although the average residential sale price for June 2018 is lower compared to June 2017, prices have made healthy gains over the past five and 10 years. 

There has been an increase in sales in some areas of our market, such as Hamilton West, Dundas, Grimsby and Dunnville. Some areas which were particularly active over the last few years, such as Hamilton East, Hamilton Centre and Burlington, are still experiencing fewer sales. “The numbers show the fluctuations and distinct characteristics between our various communities,” adds O’Neill. “This is why a local RAHB REALTOR®’s professional advice is critical when buying and selling your property.”
