The Oakville, Milton and District Real Estate Board

Oakville-Milton and District MLS® home sales continue to post consistent growth in March

The number of homes sold through the MLS® System of the Oakville-Milton and District Real Estate Board totaled 287 units in March 2024. This was a decline of 5.9% from March 2023.

Home sales were 31.1% below the five-year average and 32.9% below the 10-year average for the month of March.

On a year-to-date basis, home sales totaled 702 units over the first three months of the year. This was up by 9.3% from the same period in 2023.

“Despite experiencing a year-over-year downturn in March, MLS® homes sales demonstrated resilience by posting a third consecutive monthly increase. The number of newly listed homes ticked up slightly compared to last year, yet remained well below the historical figures,” said Anthony Danko, President of the Oakville-Milton and District Real Estate Board. "Active listings kept rising, exceeding the five-year average for the month. Market conditions are balanced as we head into the traditionally active spring period. As buyers await a clear signal from the Bank of Canada that both interest rates and by extension mortgage rates will soon decrease, this may later be viewed as the calm before the storm.
