Months of inventory continue to climb as new listings are added to MLS. This is GREAT news, as it means more options for prospective homebuyers! Months of inventory for freehold properties has increased to 2.7 months from 2.1 months in June 2023. Months of inventory for condos also saw an increase and is now at 2.3 months from 1.4 months in June 2023. As a reference, a real estate market is considered balanced when we reach at least 4 months of supply.
MLS saw 2,234 new listings in June, which set the five-year average for new listings in June to 2,336. Days on market (DOM) for freehold properties has increased to 26 days from 23 days in June 2023. Meanwhile, DOM for condos increased to 28 days from 27 days in June 2023.
As a result of the limited available inventory, we continue to be in a strong seller’s market. That being said, not every property that goes on MLS will have multiple offers or will sell immediately. Properties that are accurately priced and that show well are seeing offers. Despite being in a seller’s market, inventory is increasing, which presents a lot of promising opportunities for prospective buyers to enter the market. Whether you’re a prospective buyer or seller, it’s important to work with a realtor that you trust, who has up-to-the-minute market data and has great negotiation skills.
