Window on the Quebec City real estate market

QUEBEC CITY, 04 Feb. 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Professional Association of Quebec Real Estate Brokers (APCIQ) has just released its residential real estate market statistics for the Quebec census metropolitan area (CMA) for the month of January, according to the Centris provincial database of real estate brokers.

“The Quebec City market is starting the year strong, although the number of sales is down for this period of the year compared to what we have experienced over the past two exceptional years. The lack of properties on the resale market and the relatively sustained level of single-family home starts largely explain this situation,” notes Charles Brant, director of market analysis at the APCIQ. “While market overheating persists, it remains contained, with overbidding affecting only one in three transactions over the years, with spreads between listing and selling prices often below 10%. Thus, the rise in prices remains strong, but contained,” he adds.

January Highlights

  • In January, sales fell to 684, down 16% from the same period last year. Note that January 2021 set a historic record with 817 sales.
  • Thus, all regions of the Quebec City CMA continue to show a drop in sales, particularly the Northern Periphery with a 25% drop compared to last year, followed closely by the Quebec City agglomeration (-17% ). The South Shore experienced the smallest decline with a 9% drop in sales.
  • The condominium category is enjoying great popularity with sales down only 13% compared to January 2021. Sales of single-family homes, limited by a low level of available inventory and more intense competition from the new home market, experienced a drop of 18%. decrease of sales. Sales of small income properties experienced the largest drop (-20%).
  • Active listings fell significantly for the 22nd consecutive month for single-family homes (-31%) and condominiums (-42%) in particular. They decreased by 2% for small income properties.
  • In very tight market conditions in favor of sellers, prices continue to rise steadily, even though plexes are down a slight 1% ($347,250). Condominiums were up 9% from a year ago, while single-family home prices recorded a solid 15% increase. Median prices thus reached new records for these two categories for this period of the year: $325,000 for single-family homes and $217,000 for condominiums.
