Low inventory, high prices are the story of September in the KW market

October 6, 2021

Those hoping to see home prices cool off in Kitchener-Waterloo are having to wait a little longer. The September 2021 stats are in, and it was another month of high prices and minimal inventory.

There were 506 homes sold this September, which is down 32.1% from the record-smashing month of September 2020. In fact, there were merely 345 available homes on the market at the end of the month, which is 35.5% fewer than the same month last year, and a whopping 73.2% fewer than the previous ten-year average of 1285 homes. 

This tight inventory has maintained the intense competition in the market; more buyers are having to compete for the few properties that are listed. This dynamic has led to the average home price coming in at $792,599 for September, an increase of 24.2% over the same month last year.
