Real estate market analysis – February 2024, Montreal.

The Montreal real estate market continues to grow in February 2024. Following the month of January 2024, which showed the first signs of market recovery after a “pivotal” year in 2023, statistical indicators point to good economic health in the sector and a return of buyers to the market, taking advantage of favorable conditions.

The strong growth in sales (+40%) compared to the same period last year bears witness to the resumption of growth in the sector, underpinned by more flexible macro-economic conditions and easier access to financing for buyers. These factors give market players greater flexibility and strength, enabling them to carry out the best transactions, at the right prices and under the right conditions.

Montreal property sales prices – February 2024

The increase in sales in February 2024 is accompanied by a rise in sales prices for all types of property on the market, without exception.

This increase, anticipated by our team from the start of the year, is a natural phenomenon given the resumption of market growth, which is inevitably accompanied by price rises to support this growth.

These indicators confirm advanced growth for 2024, and should continue to rise over the coming months as market momentum continues. Market prices are currently still low, and should continue to rise over the coming months.

For each market profile, the situation remains advantageous:

  • For sellers, the rise in median prices enables them to realize a significant capital gain on the sale price of their property, ensuring them a tangible gain in money.
  • For buyers, the extensive inventory and still relatively low prices offer unique opportunities to position themselves on properties that match their criteria, while taking advantage of favorable market conditions.

We’ve devised a unique buying strategy to enable buyers to save thousands on their purchase and financing by taking advantage of current market conditions.

Deadline for property sales in Montreal – February 2024

There has also been a significant reduction in average time-to-market.

This indicator, which is extremely important for understanding market volatility and dynamics, also confirms the sector’s renewed enthusiasm and growth, with lead times falling significantly.

We note :

  • An average drop of 16 days for single-family properties.
  • An average reduction of 18 days for condominiums.
  • An average drop of 16 days for plexes.

These significant declines reflect a much shorter time-to-market for all property types than in the previous month, testifying to a strong return to the market by buyers, who are gradually regaining their strength to assert their interests in the market.

Pricing has played a decisive role in recent property sales and market delays. Properties that have adopted a good pricing strategy experience a very low time-to-market and a strong attraction from buyers who position themselves in a short time on a targeted property.

This type of property, highly appreciated by the market, remains the flagship product for buyers, and has historically been the leading type of property in the Montreal area.
