Window on the Quebec City CMA real estate market:

QUEBEC, Jan. 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – The Professional Association of Real Estate Brokers of Quebec (APCIQ) has just published its statistics on the residential real estate market for the Quebec census metropolitan area (CMA) for the month of December, according to the Centris provincial database of real estate brokers.

“There was a resurgence of interest in condominiums at the end of 2021. It now takes barely more than 4 months to sell the entire building stock for sale, a significant advantage for sellers who have not seen themselves at this time of year since 2003. ”, notes Charles Brant, director of market analysis at APQAP. “Buyers are flocking to this type of property, which is still relatively affordable in Quebec, taking advantage of financing rates that are still extremely advantageous,” he adds.

Highlights for December

  • In 2021, sales in Quebec experienced a relative drop of 4% with 10,197 transactions. Nevertheless, this is the second most active year recorded by the Centris real estate brokerage system after the exceptional year of 2020.
  • In December, sales fell to 736, a decrease of 17% from the same period last year. Note that a historic record of 885 sales was reached in December 2020.
  • All sectors of the Quebec City CMA continue to record excellent levels of sales, particularly on the South Shore with a drop of 4% compared to December last year, followed closely by the northern outskirts of Quebec ( -5%). The agglomeration of Quebec recorded the most significant drop with a 21% drop in sales.
  • The condominium category enjoys great popularity with sales down only 7% compared to December 2020. Sales of single-family homes, constrained by a low level of available inventory, were down 20%. The sales of small income properties experienced the largest drop (-25%).
  • Active listings fell significantly for the 21st consecutive month for single-family homes (-36%) and especially for condominiums (-45%). The decrease is -7 percent for small income properties.
  • Month after month, with market conditions largely favorable to sellers, prices continue to rise steadily, even though plexes are down slightly by 4% ($ 350,000). Condominiums jumped about 18% from a year ago, while single-family home prices continued to show a steady increase of about 13%. As a result, median prices hit new records for these two categories: $ 318,875 for single-family homes and $ 225,000 for condominiums.
