MONTHLY MARKET REPORT
Durham Region real estate had a strong start to 2022, with another record setting month.
While prices in the overall GTA market also increased in January, Durham price increases outpaced the overall market by nearly double.
Durham was by far the hottest market in the GTA, with the average property selling at 127% of list price. Dufferin was next, with that figure well behind at 114%, and the average for all of the GTA was 113%.
Intense competition from buyers on listings is evident in the high number of offers on many listings. As a result, prices are continuing to see upward pressure.

Sales volume in Durham Region decreased 6.5% from last year with 609 units sold versus 651 last January.
The time a property takes to sell is called DOM or days on market. It was 7 in January.
A key indicator of demand is sale price compared to list price. It was 127% in Durham in January, 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%.
These factors combined are still very strong metrics 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 well over list.
