Sales of MLS® listed single detached homes City of Thunder Bay surge in April

Sales of single detached homes in the City of Thunder Bay numbered 83 units in April 2024. This was a substantial gain of 53.7% from the same period in 2023.

Single detached home sales were 11.6% above the five-year average and 1.8% below the 10-year average for the month of April.

On a year-to-date basis, single detached home sales totaled 229 units over the first four months of the year. This was a gain of 8.5% from the same period in 2023.

“Sales of single detached homes gained momentum in April, marking the third consecutive month-over-month gain and a whopping 53% gain from April 2023,” said Wes Case, President of the Thunder Bay Real Estate Board. “Board-wide sales also rose, with a 25% increase compared to the same period last year, nearly doubling the total from January. On the pricing front, average prices saw a nearly 10% rise from last year, hitting the highest single month total since summer 2023. As the number of newly listed properties outpaced sales by a wide margin, overall inventory is starting to build, offering more selection for potential buyers. The spring market is bustling and MLS® market activity seems to be picking up.”
