In order to understand the desirability of the Rouge Woods neighbourhood for buyers and sellers, it is necessary to compare the present market to a previous one. In this case the second quarter of 2014 is compared side-by-side to the second quarter statistics of 2013, with with the increase or decrease in results in the right hand column.

Home sales in 2014 increased to 102 from 86 in 2013, and the Average Home Sale Price increased on average by $70,159. For the same time there were 11 fewer Active Listings in 2014 and 22 more New Listings. Home prices increased as product increased. Surely, the desirability of the neighbourhood helped keep the prices up, but continually low interest rates also helped too. During the same period, the Average Number of Days on the Market decreased from 14 in 2013 to only 11 in 2014 which was certainly good for home sellers. The Percentage of Sold Price To Listing Price improved to 103% from 100% in 2013. The majority of Rouge Woods real estate sales, as indicated below, is from detached homes and attached freehold townhomes. This extremely desirable neighbourhood is another indicator of the strength of the overall Richmond Hill Housing Market.

Our strong economy should continue with this neighbourhood helping to lead the way.
