Terry's Take on the Brantford Real Estate Market

This may sound like a broken record but despite the rising interest rates there continues to be a high demand for the houses for sale in Brantford, and any Buyer who has a lower interest rate that they wisely locked-in for 60, 90, or 120 days are going to want to make sure to buy a home before that lower locked-in interest rate expires because if they don't then the new higher interest rate could have a significant negative impact on the purchase price they would be able to afford at the new rate.   

The trend from the past few months with approximately 1/2 of the homes selling for above their asking prices and approximately 1/2 of the homes selling for below their asking prices has also continued heading into this month. Fortunately if you're working with an experienced and knowledgeable local Brantford realtor who knows the values for the different types of properties in the various neighbourhoods here in Brantford then they'll be able to tell you if the asking price for a home is a good price or a not-so-good price, and more importantly, how much that home should sell for in the current market.

So far in 2023 the homes that have been sold have averaged a sale price that was 99.40% of the asking price(it should actually be lower than that because that # is based on the most recent asking price and not the "original" asking price and there are several homes that were originally listed at a price that was $50,000 to $100,000 higher than the last asking price the home was at when it finally sold). Our listings here at The Terry Summerhays Team in 2023 have averaged a sale price that is 12.10% ABOVE the asking price thanks to our proven and aggressive real estate marketing system. That's a lot more money going into our clients' pockets!
