10 communities showing home sold price decline resistance: Have we hit the bottom?

This week alone, I’ve read multiple articles published by well-established new sources citing that house prices are in a free fall and in general we should be panicking with fears that your homes will continue to decline in value.

But is that true?

New analysis from of detailed MLS transaction-level data calculating average home sold price at the time of sale suggests that there are several communities in Ontario that have experienced a resistance to further price decreases. This first look at the data shows that the decline in home sold prices has slowed down and, in some cases, stopped.

10 communities showing house old price decline resistance, as follows.

- Ajax

- Clarington

- Guelph

- Kingston

- Kitchener-Waterloo

- Lindsay

- Markham

- Newmarket

- Oakville

- Richmond Hill
