December 2018 Woodstock Ontario Real Estate Market Statistics

Status quo for Woodstock in December 2018...

In the month of December, the Woodstock real estate market experienced no real changes to the status quo. The number of properties sold in December was 38, which was down just one home from the same time last year, while the active inventory ticked upwards from 85 last December to 89, a gain of 4.7%. The average sale price in Woodstock was a lofty $378,087 this December, which was up 15.6% from last December's average sale price of $327,046.The Median sale price also showed 13.2% gain over December last year, at $373,500.

Steady as she goes is the market prediction through the slower winter months. The number of homes available drops, and the number of active buyers shopping also drops. It remains a strong market for sellers, and difficult for buyers, especially those shopping in price ranges under $400,000. The excellent upgrade opportunity first referenced on our market reports back in September still exists, where incredible demand for homes under $400k provides the opportunity to negotiate from a position of strength on your existing home (75% of homes are selling below $400k), and also on the purchase end (only 25% of homes sell above $400k).

The REAL Ben:

Born and Raised in Woodstock Ontario, I am intrinsically connected with the community. When I am not selling Real Estate for my clients, I can be found hanging out with my family. My wife, Amanda, my sons Nolan and Liam, and our mutt, Nori. 

My family enjoys biking the awesome trails around Woodstock, having dinner at one of the many Oxford County establishments, playing golf at one of the many area courses, and the accessible, inexpensive nature of life in Woodstock.

My rural life keeps me busy, maintaining and upgrading our home just outside of the city. When I have spare time, I like to listen to music, play some guitar or video games, and stay up to date on the latest memes. 

My family loves to travel, and recent trips include a bucket-list-checking voyage to New Zealand and Australia in 2018, a road trip to Acadian Shores Nova Scotia the year before. Upcoming goals include another east coast visit to PEI and New Brunswick. 

We love visiting the family cottage in Port Loring, On, where I pretend to know how to catch pickerel and wakeboard. Really I just secretly like quiet hours floating on a lake. 


One thing I need to mention, though, since you've read this far, is that the true joy I get from my position as a Real Estate Broker, is crafting excellent strategies to capitalize on current market conditions for the benefit of my clients. Taking an idea, strategizing to minimize stress and maximize opportunites given in the market, and turning it in to a reality brings me great happiness. Let's get happy together!
