Insights and Takeaways

Mission’s real estate market in September 2023 presents a mixed bag of results. While there’s an evident increase in new listings and active listings across all property types, the sales have seen a decline, especially for townhouses and apartments. One of the potential reasons could be the cooling period that typically follows a bustling summer selling season. However, with the benchmark prices for detached homes witnessing an increase, it indicates a still-strong demand for standalone properties in the area. As we transition into the final quarter of 2023, prospective buyers and sellers in Mission should remain informed about these market trends, ensuring they make data-driven decisions.
