I guess this is only detached house numbers. Interestingly the owner of a detached house in Aurora made $500K on their house which is probably more than their annual income! They might as well give up their job. Who needs to work when your house makes more money than you..lol

Yeah, but that money is just on paper. Your house does not give you $500K hard cash, right?
Honestly, all this appreciation is meaningless unless you are planning to downsize or move to a smaller town.

TOP percentage based. So it really took the guy with a 6000 sqft home in aurora to sell it this year. Kind of a meaningless list.

I checked three areas with the treb reports from Jan 2016 and Jan 2017, for Aurora, Pickering and Whitby, the numbers are not 100% accurate but very, very close to Detach House Average Price..
I wonder where this chart maker got numbers from, and if TREB edits reports after publishing?

TREB does edit after publishing. Because they publish so soon after the month is over, if deals fall through or otherwise change the numbers are revised later. It's usually not a significant change.

I saw the numbers here: http://www.movesmartly.com/2017/02/deta ... ities.html
When the truth offends, we lie and lie until we can no longer remember it is even there. But it is still there... every lie we tell incurs a debt to the truth. Sooner or later, that debt is paid.

Doesn't make much sense that Aurora is nearly the same as Vaughn and Markham in that list. Might be skewed by a few bigger transactions.

Maybe the median price would be more accurate?

why not? Aurora is pretty white bread and has gotten very affluent lately. I can see the appeal for that demographic. It's like Oakville north.

The demographics for Aurora have not changed since last year.

Keep in mind the volume of sales is quite low in Aurora so a few large purchases can indeed skew the numbers. For example, in January there were 23 sales in Aurora vs 100+ sales in each of Vaughn, Richmond Hill, and Markham.

Best to watch the trend over the next few months to draw conclusions.

I definitely feel like white flight is a trend in Aurora's and Newmarket's growth. More Affluent whites leaving Markham and RH and moving there. But yeah Aurora is smaller.
