    It's unbelievable what can happen in a 12 month period! We definitely saw more fluctuations in the condo apartment sector of the Barrie condo market in 2017 than we did for condo townhouses. Instead, condo townhouses experienced steady growth throughout the year. I would think the main cause was due to the wide range of prices condo apartments have compared to condo townhouses....Read More

    As predicted, the Barrie condo market has experienced a bump in prices over the past month due to the new mortgage rules that will be implemented January 1st.

  The Barrie condo market was quite balanced in October where units were taking 40 days, on average, to sell and the majority selling below their asking price. Buyers have been able to take their time and are happy to be back in a negotiating position when presenting an offer. I have noticed that sellers have accepted this new reality and are starting to lower their expectations and are pric...Read More

Over the past 9 months, Barrie’s condo market experienced double digit increases, multiple offers and units selling within days of being listed.

  Condo sales in Barrie were down in June causing the average price for condo apartments to drop to $360,986, with a median of $274,000. Why such a gap between the average and median? There were a few higher end properties that sold which skewed the average price. Average days on market increased to 3 weeks and many sellers that were being unreasonable with their list price had to make a tou...Read More
