Wellington County real estate update at December 2022

Reviewing November 2022 market in Wellington County

Wellington County real estate remains in a balanced market despite the rising number of new listings and lower number of unit sales compared to this time last year. The YTD average and median sale prices are still higher than they were this time last year, which means a strong foundation for this market going into the holiday season and into 2023.

End of November 2022 real estate market overview video:

For Wellington County, the year to date sales volume at end of November was down 16.3% from 2021 numbers, where 2022 sales volume to date is just over $2.882B at end of November compared to 2021 volume of $3.445B the same time last year.  Concurrently, the YTD unit sales were at 3,262 by the end of November 2022, down 22% compared to last year’s 4193 units sold by this time last year in the county.

During the month of November, actual unit sales were also down almost 35% with only 208 units sold compared to last November’s 319 units sold.  There were also additional 33% new listings in November with 403 new listings last month relative to only 303 new listings of November 2021. Thus, a continued plethora of new listings on the market for buyers, combined with buyer demand dropping off by the actual unit number of sales decreasing.

The buyer activity that was present still continued to maintain prices, and the year-over-year median sales price was at $810,000 at end of November 2022, which is still up almost 12% from the 2021 median of $725,000 just one year ago. And year-to-date average sales prices continued that trend, although again lower than last months’, the average sale price increased over 8% relative to 2021 resulting in an average sales price of $886,376 at end of November 2022 vs. average price of $820,280 just one year ago in the region.
