Lower Listing Restrict Local Real Estate Sales

January statistics from the Windsor Essex County Association of Realtors indicate a strong demand in the local market.

But the numbers also show fewer properties are available, leading to lower sales.

The number of listings available in Windsor Essex in January was almost 24% lower than in the first month of 2017.

Sales also dipped compared to last January, off more than 21%.

However the average price ended up substantially higher compared to a year ago, and increase of close to $60,000 to nearly $278,000.
