The Oakville Real Estate market has started to pick up over the last few weeks. Mostly due to the easing of restrictions in our region. Sales and listings are still below 2019 levels, but the market is experiencing a recent surge in activity, and there have been a lot of multiple offer situations arising from the pent-up demand over the last 3 months. Contrary to what the National media is reporting, Oakville is experiencing steady prices, and in some cases, price increases. The next few months will most likely remain strong resulting in a delayed spring market which will carry throughout most of the summer.
