Understanding this report
This report is the home price and inventory for the three communities, Willowdale East, Willowdale West, and. The data provided here help you make a well-informed decision about where you'd like to live.
**Why do we use firm contract numbers instead of closed deals?
To obtain the most updated stats, we use the firm contract - NOT when the transaction is reported or when the deal closes.
A contract is firm when both the home seller and buyer agree to the transaction.
Why use periods of 28 and 56 days?
We use 28 and 56 day periods because some months have more weekends, ensuring that each period has the same amount of days and weekends to make a like-for-like comparison.
What does pro-rated data?
It can take up to four weeks or more for transactions to be reported based on historical reporting. Almost 30% of home transactions within this period have yet to be included in this report. Hence this period's numbers are considered "pro-rated."
