Price growth of homes for sale in Georgina

Rolling average price growth by region

Moving into the spring market has put Georgina back on track for growth figures similar to March 2016. This price growth demonstrates an early start to the spring market, with price growth from January-February 2017 at a staggering 6%, making the largest month-to-month jump on record in the last 12 months. Smaller submarkets with lower prices have experienced the most growth on a year-year basis. This confirms our thesis that the low-end of the market experiences the most substantial growth.




























Pricing Trends for February 2017

House price growth in Georgina has taken a dramatic shift towards a more luxury-oriented market, with prices surging 6-12% between markets. High demand in the high end of the market has created substantial price growth in the low-end of the market, as buyers are pushed down into lower inventory, and port their capital there.


Higher-priced markets such as Historic Lakeshore Communities have experienced lower growth, but still maintain the most expensive homes for sale within Georgina.

Real estate sales volume

February 2017 has really been reflective of the top-down price growth trends predicted in January. With more and more buyers being pushed out of higher price ranges by price acceleration, the growth of lower price range ($300k-500k) has accelerated approximately 22% faster than higher price ranges (500k+).

Strong start to the spring market for Keswick


The winter months demonstrated strong investor confidence in markets like Pefferlaw, Sutton & Jackson’s Point, but their strength has been dwarfed by a massive surge in demand for homes in Keswick.

This shift in the market has occurred on an annual basis as demand for family residences increases each year to onset the spring market.

This year, the spring market is off to an early start, catalyzed by the massive growth in price and volume in Keswick South.

Resurrection of high-end price acceleration


As we predicted last month, the price of luxury properties, estate homes, and waterfront homes in Georgina would begin to accelerate with the spring market, and with it, would begin to slowly destroy the entry-level of the market in Georgina.

As this acceleration begins to manifest, it creates a localized price inequality within the Georgina market, as high prices, growing at the same rate, increase by a larger dollar-value than their lower counterparts.

Essentially, it seems that the market is still making progress towards equilibrium, albeit in a rather slow and volatile fashion by comparison to past real estate booms in the Greater Toronto Area.

Investors gaining strength

sizeJanuary 2016 provided perfect insight into the catalyst that created this year’s hot spring market, which seemed to intensify with full force throughout Febuary.

Last month, family utility seemed to dominate the market, with larger, family style homes dominating the market demand. This month, the size of a home demanded increased across the board in all markets except for Keswick South, which seems to be a market  where volume is dominated by families purchasing specifically within Simcoe Landing. The market is dominated by the entry-level pushing price upward.

We expect to see this price growth trend continue indefinitely, but the lower end will normalize into its heightened growth pattern to essentially squeeze out the low-end price range of homes for sale in Georgina.

Multiple multiple multiple offers

Keswick’s market continues to dominate for the second month on both price and volume, but some other interesting pieces of the puzzle are falling into place, which we expect to carry through the spring market. S/L ratio was over 100% in all markets, and over 105% in half. Under-pricing has become a relatively common phenomena in the market, with a number of brokers from the southern GTA trading real estate in Georgina. Home sales in Georgina are beginning to behave very similarly to our southern counterparts within the Greater Toronto Area.
