PHOTOS: The cheapest -- and most expensive -- homes sold in Hamilton in December
Despite the onslaught of winter and the holidays, Hamilton's real estate market saw a lot of movement last month.
Managing editor at Zoocasa, Penelope Graham, points out that the Realtors Association of Hamilton-Burlington (RAHB) recorded an uptick for both sales and average prices in December compared to the same month last year.
A RAHB report from earlier this month found that a total of 585 homes traded hands, which is a 3.9 per cent increase from 2018, and transactions fetched an average of $581,566, which is up 7.6 per cent year over year.
A total of 440 newly listed homes hit the market across all detached, semi/townhouse and apartment home types. In terms of market activity, demand was hottest for Hamilton condos, which saw sales rise 14.8 per cent, in addition to a 10.2 per cent price increase.
Detached houses for sale in Hamilton were also snapped up at an increasing rate, with the
number of sales rising 6.8 per cent from last year, and prices rising 8.2 per cent. Townhouse/semi-detached homes were the only housing type to see a year-over-year decline in sales, down -7.6 per cent, though RAHB points out that demand for these more affordable home types remains ferocious, with inventory levels too low to keep up, and resulting in overall fewer transactions.
Here are some of the most affordable and most expensive homes to have sold across Hamilton in December.
