market statistics: March 2010 Georgian Triangle Real Estate Market Report - 04/04/10 08:01 AM
The month of March proved to be strong start to the spring market and potentially a sign of having put the recession fully behind us - at least for now.
Sales in the Georgian Triangle last month reached the highest level on record for any March since 2004 with a total of 200 MLS® sales in all areas serviced by the Georgian Triangle Real Estate Board for all types of properties.  Of the 200 sales, about 135 were single family homes and 24 were condominiums.  There were also 25 vacant land sales.  The number of new listings also climbed sharply with … (0 comments)

market statistics: February 2010 Georgian Triangle Real Estate Market Report - 03/01/10 11:12 AM
Real estate activity in February in Collingwood, Blue Mountain and area continued to show recovery over the picture we saw one year ago.
Sales in the Georgian Triangle in February, 2010 were up 39% compared to the same month last year when we were in the depth of the recession.  There were 107 sales of all types reported in our area in February but this was still well below the 139 sales reported in the same month in 2008.  The number of new listings for the month declined by 13% over a year ago with 347 new listings in February.

market statistics: February 2009 Georgian Triangle Real Estate Market Report - 03/04/09 03:06 AM
The local real estate market for Collingwood, Blue Mountain and surrounding areas showed some minor improvement over the past month compared to the previous 3 months.  Overall, sales YTD are still well below last year by about 50% in the number of unit sales.
Following Januarys pattern, it was again interesting and slightly surprising to see that the number of new listings for the month was lower than in the previous year.  Typically, we expect to see an increase in listings during recessionary periods however, this decrease may signal general stability among homeowners not having to sell.
The following information was … (0 comments)

market statistics: Wasaga Beach and Collingwood Posted Real Estate Price Gains in 2008 - 02/01/09 11:23 AM
Although it's now February, people are still asking about prices in our various neighbourhoods in the Georgian Triangle.  So, in the spirit of wrapping up the 2008 statistics, here is a chart showing the change in the average sale prices between 2007 and 2008 by area: 
Please do remember that average sale prices can be skewed significantly by a few really high or low sales so they are not necessarily a fair representation of prices however, they do show the general trends by area.
Interestingly but not surprisingly, both Collingwood and Wasaga Beach registered an increase in values; even when I … (0 comments)

market statistics: Comparing Collingwood – Blue Mountain Real Estate to Ontario - 02/18/08 05:40 AM
Some days I feel like the Georgian Triangle is the most expensive area in the province and on other days, not so much.  It varies depending on whom I'm dealing with that day and what it is that I'm viewing, appraising, listing or looking for.  Is there a way to really know how real estate in the Collingwood and Blue Mountain areas compare to other places?
Last week, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) released their "Housing Now" report   which provided a picture of the residential housing market in Ontario.  As a bit of statistics junky, I've always found this particular report … (0 comments)

market statistics: Collingwood, Blue Mountain and Area, 2007 Year-End Review - 01/01/08 05:47 AM
Although everyone predicted a "soft landing" and somewhat slower pace for 2007, the year ended with record sales numbers across the country including in our South Georgian Bay market.  In addition to resale figures, there have been a large number of new home sales in our region and the trend would appear to be far from over.  According to numbers recently supplied by local Town planners, there are applications in place for hundreds of developments representing close to 18,000 new units!  It appears that about 70% of these are for condominiums and 30% for single family homes.  That is an astounding … (0 comments)

market statistics: 2008 Ontario/Canada Real Estate Market Outlook - 12/30/07 05:44 AM
Be forewarned.  This is a long post.  I hope you'll find the use of space worthwhile.
Recently, I was reading a dialogue between American REALTORS® on one of the Active Rain groups and I was kind of surprised to see how strongly they felt about Canada being THE place to invest in real estate.  They pointed to our stable economy, our natural resources and our "sane" government as all being reasons that they were starting to direct their investor clients into our marketplace.  Certainly national statistics have borne out that there is significant strength in our real estate market.  As most … (37 comments)
