Durham Region Real Estate Market Trends For December and 2020

Thursday Jan 02nd, 2020




As we start 2020 the Durham Region Real Estate Market continues to chug along nicely.  Prices continue to trend upwards, while the average days on market sitting around 20 days and shrinking.  Durham Region does have some of the lowest inventory levels going back as far as 20 years!  I think a lot of people are moving up but keeping their current homes and this is causing the low inventory levels ( just my opinion).   Lets dig into some current real estate stats for Oshawa.

Oshawa Housing Prices From December 1st to Janaury 1st.   According to zolo the average Oshawa price is up 10% year to date, most of those gains coming in the last quarter!

Those are great if you're a home owner and thinking of selling, but not so great for buyers.  The rents are also a problem in the GTA.  If you want to rent a family home in the Durham Region it's minimum $2000.  Housing affordability is becoming a major issue in the GTA regardless if owning or renting.  I read an article this morning stating Toronto has now surpassed San Francisco  or London for affordability.  This will only benefit the Durham Region as people flee to the burbs.  Durham Region is still much more affordable in comparison to Oakville or Newmarket areas.
