Active listings in Durham Region were 286 at the time this report was compiled. That is a 56.1% decrease from last year and a 33.8% decrease from October.

There was 0.9 months of inventory at the end of December (trend figure, per TRREB - current figures are much lower), once again increasing buyer competition at properties at virtually all price points.


Sales volume in Durham Region increased 49.2% from last year with 733 units sold versus 518 last December. It was down from November by 29.0%. This is the highest volume on record for the month of December.

The time a property takes to sell is called DOM or days on market. It was 13 in December.

Another indicator of demand is sale price compared to list price. It was 107% in Durham in December, again showing very strong levels of buyer demand, as the typical property sold for well over list price.

These factors combined are a good barometer for sellers, as it shows that not only is current inventory moving at a rapid pace, but it is also selling at a price that is very close to or over asking.
