DRAR reports an increase in August real estate sales

DURHAM REGION, September 6, 2017 - Durham Region Association of REALTORS® (DRAR) President Roger Bouma reported 822 residential transactions in August 2017, a 9.75% increase over the previous month.
August also saw a 16.2% increase in the number of new listings in Durham (1,497), compared to the 1,288 new listings reported in August 2016.
“We continue to experience a healthy balanced market,” said Bouma. “The average house price in August in Durham is $587,172, which is down 16.5% from the highs reached in April, but slightly higher (3%) than the previous month of $569,748 and an 8.3% increase over the same period last year.
“Home ownership continues to be a good investment,” said Bouma. “It remains the only investment that you can live in, raise your family and make memories, while ensuring a nice return over time.” He added, “Durham Region continues to be a great place to buy, offering some of the best real estate value in the GTA.”

Business Of The Month   
 Nova's Ark
Nova's Ark began about 18 years ago, after Mary Ann Nova decided to purchase a piece of property for her family to enjoy.

Since then it has grown into a place where people of all ages and developmental abilities are invited to spend time with a wide range of animals and make them feel safe and instill a sense of belonging no matter what their mental or physical capabilities are.
With more than 200 animals on premises, Mary Ann ensures every person who visits Nova's Ark can pick and choose from a variety of species to help them feel safe in a friendly environment.

Congratulations to Nova's Ark for being named Business of the Month for September 2017!
