PHOTOS: The cheapest — and most expensive — homes sold in Hamilton in April
While the real estate market hit a rough patch last month, there was still some movement in the Hamilton region.
According to the latest report from the Realtors Association of Hamilton-Burlington (RAHB), home sales across the broader RAHB region declined 63.4 per cent year-over-year, while prices rose 4.3 per cent to $614,412.
RAHB president Kathy Della-Nebbia noted in the report that as in other markets, local realtors turned to virtual tools and technology to assist buyers and sellers while abiding by provincial and public health guidelines to facilitate transactions.
Despite these measures, just 337 residential home sale transactions occurred in Hamilton during the month of April, marking an annual decline of 59 per cent.
There were 557 homes listed for sale in April, marking a steep double-digit decline of 57 per cent from last year.
Despite slower sales activity, home prices remained largely unaffected. In fact, Hamilton average home prices ended the month at $559,559, marking a six per cent year-over-year increase.
