After the pandemic-induced depression in real estate during April and May, County real estate recovered strongly in June, moving close to bubble territory.

Demand Doubled

From May to June home sales exploded, with double the number sold in June as during the month before and up significantly from the same time last year.

Supply Limited

On the supply side, the number of active listings remained significantly below last year.

Balance Favoured Sellers

Chart shows that the months of inventory of homes for sale in Prince Edward County fell in June to levels last experienced during the bubble of 2016-17.

Months of inventory is an indicator of the balance of supply and demand which measures how long the pool of current listings would last at the current rate of sales. During June, the months of inventory fell to just over 4 months, a level not seen since the real estate bubble of 2016-17. The market strongly favoured sellers during June.

Average Price Up

The chart shows that June average house prices in Prince Edward County were up 21% from a year earlier.

The average price for homes sold in June was $600,000, up 21% from June 2019. By comparison, average house prices increased by 14% per year during the period 2015-19.


As Ontario began to re-open, County real estate made a strong recovery in June. With demand outstripping supply to a significant degree, the market strongly favoured sellers. Whether the June level of demand is sustained will depend on Covid-19 being kept in check while making a quick economic recovery.
