January 2019 Woodstock Market Report

 

Average Sale price, down 1.4% to $375,183

Median Sale Price, down 4% to $369,900.

Number of Homes for sale, Up 34.2% to 98 Homes for Sale

# of Homes Sold, equal to last year, at 43 Homes sold. 


Some have been calling for a correction for a while, and some have continually pointed to the cooling in the Toronto market as evidence of impending DOOM in Woodstock! Don't be silly. For almost 24 months, buyers and agents have been whining about "not enough houses to sell" and "getting outbid" on all of our offers. For the first time in 15 months we have seen a negative number on average pricing. Let's celebrate! A more balanced market is healthy! 

The numbers also do not show the fact that anyone looking for a property under $400,000 are still facing likely multiple offer situations, with    14 out of 28 homes selling AT or OVER asking price.

Now that the government has decided to HOLD interest rates, with doubts about any increases this year, I expect to see low / manageable growth going forward, with continued pressure in the "starter home" market under $400,000, and a bit of a buying opportunity for those looking for a higher end home.

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!
