In this case the third quarter statistics of 2014 are compared side-by-side to the third quarter statistics of 2013 from the Community Housing Market Report York Region, Newmarket, with with the increase or decrease in results in the right hand column.

Home sales in 2014 increased to 15 from 14 in 2013, and the Average Home Sale Price increased on average by $22,567. At the same time there were 7 more New Listings in 2014 as well as 4 more Active Listings, and the price per home went up along with a total Dollar Volume increase of $802,700. Surely, the desirability of the neighbourhood helped keep the prices up, but continually low interest rates also helped in this regard with the sale price. During the same period, the Average Number of Days on the market decreased from 31 in 2013 to 13 in 2014 which is an improvement for home sellers. The Percentage of Sold Price To Listing Price increased from 98% in 2013 to 100% in 2014. The majority of Armitage real estate sales came from detached and semi-detached houses as shown below with breakdown by type. This desirable neighbourhood is another indicator of the strength of the overall Newmarket Housing Market.

This is another example of Real Estate as a Great Investment. At present there is relatively low risk with excellent chances of increasing the value of your own estate. With homes selling close to full listing price in a relatively short length of time, Armitage continues to be strong in York Region real estate and a great investment despite the reduction in sales. Our strong economy should continue with this neighbourhood helping to lead the way.
