MLS Stats Muskoka 2017-2018

The Lakelands Real Estate Board released these MLS statistics comparing last years sales to 2017. The table below displays Muskoka's number of listings, number of listings sold, average sale price and average days on market. The second table specifically details waterfront property stats. Please note, these are MLS (Multiple Listing Services) listings only and do not include Exclusive Listings or private sales. 

The number of properties on the market has decreased each year over the last four selling seasons. The table above illustrates a further decline again in 2018 while prices have gone up due to lack of product. Therefore, according to the above statistics - this may be the opportune time to sell. 

While there has been a decrease in properties listed through MLS, there has been an increase in Exclusive Listings over the past few years. This may be in part due to MLS rules and regulations, sellers preferences regarding privacy, confidentiality and control of showings including qualifying buyers prior to arranging a viewing. Contact me to discuss the pros and cons of listing exclusively or through MLS.    

In case you missed it, Chestnut Parks 2018 Muskoka Market Report can be found here.

Please contact me directly should you wish to discuss Muskoka waterfront property statistics or to list your recreational property in time for the Spring market. 

Don't forget - the Cottage Life Show takes place March 21st to 24th. I will not be present at the Chestnut Park booth this year as I am in Fiji on vacation until April 2nd arriving back in plenty of time for the start of the selling season. While I'm away I can be reached via email and am keeping my eye on the market and on new product and relevant news. Believe it or not, the internet is faster, better and ten times cheaper here than it is in Muskoka! 

Best regards,

Muskoka Jack
