The following information was obtained from the MLS® statistics provided by the Georgian Triangle Real Estate Board. They include a summary of data for the following areas only: Collingwood, Wasaga Beach, Blue Mountain, Clearview, Grey Highlands and Meaford. For this week (previous three week’s numbers are in brackets):

Single Family Residentialbarometer

• Number of Sales: 1( 5, 1,1)
• Range of Sale Prices: $65,000

Number of Prices Changes All Types (down or up): 49
Items of Note this period:
• Three single family homes sold above their list price, 2 at list and many very close which shows a narrowing in the gap between the asking and selling price percentage this week

There is a big jump in the number of new listings this week.  Is it because summer holidays are over?  Are people preparing for a strong fall market?  I think Sellers who have been waiting to sell are jumping back into the market now after seeing a recovery underway.
