Prices are higher, but sales are lower.

That’s the general consensus from Lakeland Association of Realtors for property sales in Muskoka this past July.

The number of non-waterfront property sales dipped by 23 to 82 in the past month, with the average price jumping by about $50,000 to just over $344,000.

Waterfront properties were almost unchanged compared to 2017, with 92 sales logged in July. The average price on waterfront properties dropped by about $70,000 to $630,000.

For the entire catchment area of the association, which includes Parry Sound, Haliburton and Orillia, there have been just over 1,600 properties sold this year.
