When considering selling a home in Oshawa or other parts of Southern Ontario, your first question is likely, “how much will my home sell for?” This is not always easy to answer because of how quickly markets change and what kinds of homebuyers you can find.

Another question most home sellers have is: how long will it take? No one wants the dread of a house that won’t sell. National averages say 40% of homes sell within the first month. But if yours isn’t in that group, it falls in the 60% that tend to remain on the market for months.

The market can batter any home seller

In areas like the Oshawa, Durham Region, and Northumberland, home prices tend to be lower than Toronto proper. That’s why it’s critical to know what your home is worth and what similar homes in your area are selling for. 

Current market prices in an area can be difficult to estimate for home sellers who are not constantly making deals like real estate agents. Every market experiences different conditions, sometimes affected by the larger economy, and sometimes purely local.

In a hot market, prices are high, bidding wars can happen, and sellers are more hopeful to get a high price. But at the same time, fewer people can afford to buy a home and they’re all trying to pay as little as possible.

When prices are going down, often interest rates are increasing and sometimes inflation can lower demand. This causes homes to sit on the market for months. In these markets, buyers tend to make offers below the asking price.
