November 2017 House Prices

We’re pretty much at the end of the month so I’ve been busy cranking out the November 2017 house prices for Waterloo Region, Kitchener, Cambridge and Waterloo. You’ll probably notice that the numbers I use in my graphs are lower than what you’ll see in the media over the next week or so. Don’t worry things are good, my numbers are the median prices, not the average prices and they normally sit a bit lower.

Why do I do this? From a math standpoint it’s simple. There is a floor price for homes, in the sense that they don’t sell for less than zero, while on the upper end the sky is almost the limit. Averages can be skewed by outliers. Imagine a large home selling for $4.3 million in a small neighborhood where most of the homes are selling for $500k. The average price will be skewed upward way higher than what a typical home will actually sell for. In comparison the median price is the mathematical point where 50% of the homes sold for more and 50% sold for less. Makes sense, eh?

Here’s both the median and average prices for November:
