Annual Real Estate Sales


Measuring and reporting of residential real estate transactions is a valuable source of information on the general health of an economy. A large and growing number of residential real estate transactions indicate a healthy market for what is for most Canadians their largest asset. 

Real estate professionals as well as current and prospective residents look at statistics on real estate sales volumes in addition to current real estate inventories, historic and recent transaction values to understand and forecast supply/demand, and establish market pricing for future transactions.

Story behind the numbers

There has been a consistent increase in the annual real estate sales in Hamilton over the past five years, reaching a record high total in 2016.

The annual sales total for 2017 is trending lower in 2017 (as of December).

Performance improvements

As the local economy grows, so do employment opportunities. Hamilton’s economy has been doing quite well over the past several years and this has been reflected in more hirings and more businesses being started in the city because of investor confidence. As jobs are filled, more people are drawn to the city to live where they work which leads to positive growth in the local real estate market.
