Real Estate Market

St. Catharine’s real estate market is incredibly affordable, yet the city has seen and will continue to see, annual gain and an increase in housing prices. This can be attributed to a more stable economy and job market, low mortgage rates, and a tighter resale market, and an increase in first-time buyers due to more employment opportunities.

There is also an influx of newer homes on the market due to high levels of residential construction, a rising economy, and lower interest rates for buyers. Since the price gap between low-rise homes and apartment units isn’t huge, buyers are generally favouring low-rise homes which are creating a higher vacancy rate for apartments. Low mortgage rates are continuing to support first-time buyers, and St. Catharine will continue to attract people from other, less affordable areas of Canada.

The city’s real estate market is expected to see continual yet steady growth, however, there may be short-term build-up of supply of apartment units, which does offer more choice for buyers.
