Q2 2022 Insights for Real Estate in Windsor and Essex County

To give you further insight into the real estate market conditions for the second quarter of 2022:

  • Sales dropping can be attributed in part to the increase in the interest rate and buyers having to exit the market because they no longer qualify for a mortgage that would allow them to purchase a home that meets their needs.
     
  • The majority of home sales were over the $550,000 mark, with 1,071 homes selling over that number and 753 selling under that price point.
     
  • Residential listings remained strong with 6,408 taken so far this year compared to 5,131 at the same point last year. The sales-to-listing ratio dropped significantly from Q2 2021, down from 76% to 55%.  A greater supply of available homes along with potentially fewer buyers in the market at the moment could start to affect the average sales price as the year goes on.
