“August 2018 is the third consecutive month of increases on a year over year comparison. It is
nice to see the Buyer’s re-appearing into the market”, notes OMDREB President Rick Kedzior.
“Housing in the Oakville/Milton markets remain a steady long term investment. Our markets
continue to attract Buyers due to our safe communities, excellent schools and proximity to
major highways”, states Kedzior. “Our concern now continues to be the lack of housing
inventory to meet growing demand.”
