A Complete Guide to Guelph's Real Estate Market - July 1st, 2023



Happy Canada Day! On this occasion, we are here to present a market update for the Guelph real estate market, specifically focusing on the month of June. June brought about significant changes, including the Bank of Canada raising interest rates and a report indicating a decrease in inflation. Despite this, the bank seems determined to continue increasing interest rates. So let's dive into the details and discuss the implications for the real estate market.

Interest Rates and Inflation:

In June, the Bank of Canada raised interest rates unexpectedly, catching many off guard. The month also saw a drop in inflation to 1%, but the bank still expects interest rates to rise. The reason behind this is the comparison of current inflation data to the previous year's high numbers. The bank aims to cool down consumer demand to prevent inflation from spiraling out of control. While this might cause concern, the logic behind the move is to keep inflation in check and maintain it within their target range of 2-3%.

Impact on Real Estate Market:

Interest rates significantly impact the real estate market, and June was not favorable for potential buyers. Five-year fixed rates reached their highest levels in quite some time, making the cost of purchasing a home more expensive. Additionally, inflation caused by rising mortgage interest rates and rent is affecting the market negatively. The bank's intention to further raise interest rates will likely have a cooling effect on the real estate market, even with limited inventory.

Inventory and Sales:

Despite inventory still being down compared to the previous year, June saw a notable improvement in inflow, with a 4% increase over the typical five-year average. The outflow, however, experienced a 14.88% decrease in sales compared to the typical five-year average. These numbers indicate that while the market is recovering, a considerable gap remains to fill to return to normalcy.

Predictive Analysis for Q3 2023:

With interest rates continuing to rise and the cooling effect on the real estate market, the trend is expected to continue into the third quarter of 2023. As the market stabilizes, it is essential for buyers and sellers to stay informed and keep a close eye on developments to make informed decisions.


The Guelph real estate market experienced a tumultuous month of June, with interest rates rising unexpectedly and inflation fluctuating. While the market shows signs of recovery with increased inventory inflow, sales remain lower than average. The bank's focus on controlling inflation by raising interest rates will likely impact the real estate market, making it crucial for all stakeholders to adapt and plan strategically in the coming months. As we move into the third quarter of 2023, staying informed and monitoring market dynamics will be vital to navigating these changing times.
