Grey Highlands Leads Area in Sales Increases for 2010

Unit sales reported through the MLS® system of the Georgian Triangle Real Estate Board for the first six months of 2010 shows that the Municipality of Grey Highlands leads the the Georgian Triangle in year-over-year sales increases 2009 versus 2010.  For the period ended June 30th, unit sales in Grey Highlands are up 69% for the first six months of the year totaling 49 as compared to 29 sales in the first six months of 2009.  The average residential sale price in Grey Highlands is also up almost 16% year-to-date reflecting the fact that many of the sales in 2010 are of greater value than those reported in 2009, a fact that is consistent across our market this year in general.  MLS® sales in both the Municipality of Meaford and the Blue Mountains are running 35% and 30% ahead of 2009 respectively.  Other area municipalities are all posting sales gains in the first six months of the year with the Town of Collingwood having the smallest gain of just under 12%.  The adjacent chart shows the level of sales activity in each of the various municipalities throughout our area.
