South Guelph real estate leads city growth

It’s no secret that the most Ontario real estate markets have hit new highs this year, including Guelph despite a global pandemic. In late September, the Financial Post published an article identifying Guelph as one of the 5 fastest-growing markets in Canada. If you add in the full September sales, the average price of a home in Guelph is +14% this year.

Are Guelph home prices going to drop by 18%?

If you’re following the headlines related to real estate, you’ve likely about the news release issued by the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) regarding their forecasts for Canadian real estate. CHMC, Canada’s largest provider of mortgage insurance in Canada, estimates an incredible 9-18% decrease in the average home values across the country by 2021.
