As we stepped into the New Year, our appointment centre saw a whopping 66.6% more appointments than the week before now that the holiday season is in the rear view mirror. 2,074 total appointments were made between the 31st and 1st which is on par with the same week in 2023. As the month progresses we may see this year's appointments overtake last year’s numbers, a trend which we experienced in Q4 of 2023.
The appointment/sold index jumped from 11.7 to 17.1, as confidence comes back into the market, causing an influx of value conscious buyers.
Our top price ranges saw some interesting changes the past two weeks, the most noticeable of which was that the $1-2M price range in Hamilton dropped down from the top spot after two weeks at #1. Halton continues to see the $1-2M price range at the top, with the $2M+ range in second. Mid range price points continue to be most popular in the Niagara region, with the top range dropping from $750-800k to $550-600k.
