We admit we’re nerds when it comes to numbers.

Our McGarr Realty team loves to work with numbers, so much so that we’re ready to admit that we’re a tad obsessed. Our passion for numbers is one of the reasons why McGarr Realty is one of the leading real estate brokerages in St. Catharines and the Niagara region. We know our stuff and it shows.

Our knowledge of the real estate market in the Niagara region comes from years of experience in analyzing real estate trends and researching the housing market. Our brokerage is continually reviewing the latest real estate statistics that are available. These statistics provide useful insight about the current housing market and how it compares month to month and year to year. These numbers help our REALTORS® piece together valuable information for our clients, both buyers and sellers alike.

This is why we know that communities like Lincoln, Fonthill, and St. Catharines have seen an increase in the number of house sales from 2018 to 2019. Or why the average days on the market for homes in Niagara Falls and Welland have gone down compared to last year. Our team also has the numbers to show that housing prices have increased by at least $18,100 in every area of the Niagara region since 2018.

The reason why we care about these numbers so much is because they are the basis with which we can set feasible expectations for our clients. When working with our buyers, we stay up-to-date on current market prices and what’s being offered. This research ensures our buyers don’t overpay for their dream home. Not only do we want them to be happy with their purchase, but confident that they made the right choice. Our focus on the numbers can make this happen.

Similarly, our knowledge of the numbers means we know how to position our sellers’ homes in the Niagara and St. Catharines real estate market. Our REALTORS® watch housing trends very closely, taking note of any fluctuations or changes that can impact housing values. We want our sellers to part ways with their home knowing they have received the best current market value. Our attention to the numbers ensures us that they do.

REALTORS® at McGarr Realty are always negotiating with a solid understanding of the numbers on their side. Whether our clients are selling or buying a house in St. Catharines or elsewhere in Niagara, they can rest easy knowing we have the experience and the numbers to make their dreams happen!
