Simcoe County's real estate market continues its upward trajectory in 2024, according to the latest February Residential Market Report by the Barrie & District Association of REALTORS® (BDAR). Reflecting a positive momentum, February saw a 37.53% surge in sales totaling 557 units sold, and a modest increase of 3.40% in the average sale price to $839,675 compared to February 2023.


Despite a year-over-year decrease in new listings, Simcoe County’s real estate market continues to exhibit promising signs of growth, with new listings climbing 18.47% from last month, offering increased options for potential buyers and contributing to a balanced market environment.


Simcoe County's real estate landscape is sustained by robust population growth and a strong economy, maintaining a healthy demand for housing despite the backdrop of higher borrowing costs. The market's resilience is further underscored by the anticipation of easing interest rates, suggesting a continued positive outlook for home sales and listings in the region.


"The February market statistics are a testament to Simcoe County's vibrant real estate sector. The significant sales increase, coupled with a steady rise in average prices, reflects the robust demand and confidence in our market. The growth in new listings is particularly promising, ensuring a balanced market conducive to both buyers and sellers” said BDAR Chair, Lindsay Percy.
