Collingwood – Blue Mountain March 2011 Real Estate Market Recap

With the first quarter of 2011, now complete, here is a basic review of the real estate market in the 6 key areas of the Georgian Triangle including Collingwood, Blue Mountain, Meaford, Wasaga Beach, Clearview and Grey Highlands.

Some observations:

  • There were 155 sales reported on the Georgian Triangle MLS® in the month of March 2011 including 136 residential units, 9 farms, 6 vacant land parcels and 4 commercial properties.
  • Condominium sales in the six key areas of the Georgian Triangle are almost identically to the first quarter of 2010 with 65 units sold year-to-date at an average sale price of $248,027.
  • The number of parcels of vacant land sold in the area in the first quarter are down substantially over 2010.  Could this be due to weather conditions?
