I’ve highlighted the sales to listing figure as 2 factors are driving the busy Wasaga Beach real estate market:

  1. Out of town buyers.
  2. Low inventory.

It’s basic maths: there are more buyers than homes for sale. This wasn’t just one months market, the sales to listings figure for 2016 is 83%.

In 2015 it was 63% and 2015 43%. As little as 2 years ago roughly half as many homes sold as compared to listings.

One reason for the low inventory is residents in Wasaga Beach cannot find a home to move to. If they don’t “need” to move they do not list.

In 2016 so far there have been 15% less homes listed. The number of homes sold is up 23.5%.

Out of town buyers generally see very good value here and buy very quickly. They tend to “need” to buy.

A consequence is rising prices with the average 12 month home price in Wasaga Beach siting at $339,985. Up 10% on 2015.
