Summer market explodes ๐Ÿ’ฅ home sales & prices reach all-time highs across Victoria ๐Ÿก

Record sales & prices across Victoria's all summer long!


The number of properties that sold were up +48% in August and +39% higher in July compared to last summer. Single family detached took off like a rocket ๐Ÿš€, with more than 1 in 4 homes selling over asking price.

Demand increased across all price segments, including the luxury market. Since July more than 60 properties have sold for over $2,000,000 ๐Ÿ’ฐBuyers are scooping up incredible deals on luxury and waterfront properties. 

The strong sales activity in the luxury market has brought the average home price in Victoria to $1,000,000 for the first time ever! Our median sale price is $880,000 which is also an all-time high ๐Ÿšจ

In contrast, condo prices are flat as a pancake! Sales are still strong, but we aren’t seeing any increase in prices. The average condo now sits at $480,000. Perhaps COVID has sent buyer’s out of the urban core and into the suburbs.
