Home sales up 27% over a year ago


Tuesday, March 10, 2015

Home sales in Peterborough city and county in February were the best February in five years, the Peterborough and the Kawarthas Association of Realtors announced Monday.

There were 166 residential sales and a total of 188 property sales last month, up 27% from February 2014, according to a release from the association.

In addition to the 166 residential sales, there were nine farm sales, seven commercial property sales, five vacant lot sales and one cottage sale.

The sales boom came despite last month being the coldest February on record since 1875, the release states.

With spring approaching, three local home and outdoor shows are coming up:

  • The Peterborough Home, Outdoor and Design Show from Friday to Sunday at the Memorial Centre.
  • The Kawartha Lakes Spring Home and Outdoor Show from March 20 to 22 at the Lindsay Exhibition Building at the Lindsay Fairgrounds.
  • The Peterborough Home, Cottage and Country Show from April 10 to 13 at the Evinrude Centre.
