The time a property takes to sell is called DOM or days on market. It was 9 in December.

A key indicator of demand is sale price compared to list price. It was 119% in Durham in November, again showing extremely strong levels of buyer demand, as the typical property sold for well over list price. This figure was sharply higher than the GTA, which averaged 109% (the second highest region to Durham was Peel, with 110%).
