You may know Ontario as one of the most popular and lively territories within Canada, but California’s lesser-known counterpoint could choose to be a surprisingly solid place to live. Ontario’s location has earned it the title of “Gateway to Southern California,” and it’s a common connection point for people heading west to larger cities like Los Angeles and Long Beach. Unlike its more famous neighbors, Ontario doesn’t have a major reputation. But that’s part of the point. Named after its Canadian neighbor and constantly living in the shadow of its bigger siblings, California’s Ontario is likely never going to become a household name. But the relatively modest population and the diverse variety of industries that call Ontario home make it a steady and reliable choice for young professionals or parents looking to raise a family.

Questions About Selling a House in Ontario

What’s the housing market like in Ontario?

California, as a whole, is currently seeing some massive changes to the real estate market. And while rental rates are plummeting, homeownership is rising significantly. That’s true of Ontario as well. 2019 saw the value of homes in Ontario go up by about 7%, and it’s looking like 2020 will show comparatively steady growth, even when taking into consideration the ravages of COVID-19. By national standards, Ontario is a relatively expensive place to buy a home. But by the standards of California real estate, it’s one of the cheaper options available. The average home in Ontario is valued at just under half a million dollars, and the influx of more and more city residents to the suburbs has further bolstered the growth of this city. As a result, you can probably hold onto a house and continue to see steady growth in its value over time. But if you’re looking at unloading a house now, the market is primed for it. Competition among potential buyers is fierce, and most homes receive multiple offers before closing on a deal. In other words, leverage is in favor of current homeowners looking to sell.

How old are the houses in Ontario?

Ontario aligns almost perfectly with the national standard in terms of house age. The average house in America is 40 years old, while the average house in Ontario was built 41 years ago. That sense of balance brings with it some serious variety. With a healthy combination of historic homes, modern buildings, and everything in between, finding a buyer with sensibilities that match the aesthetics of your home is easier than it is in plenty of other markets.

How long does it take to sell a house in Ontario?

The average time it takes to sell a home in the United States is about a month, but when you choose to sell can dramatically impact how long your house stays on the market. By current metrics, Ontario has a slightly better turnaround than the rest of the country. You can generally expect to sell a home within about 30 days of placing your listing. If you want to sell a home fast, you’re going to want to position it in the summer and fall and avoid the winter. Homes on the market in summer can save about three days on the closing process while putting a home up during January or February could cause your house to stay on the market up to two weeks longer.

What is the best time to sell a house in Ontario?

One of Ontario’s biggest selling points is how ordinary it is, but the seasonal rhythm of Ontario’s housing market defies our standard expectations of when you should be selling a home. Prices spike within the last five months of the year and the normally busy summer season is significantly more anemic in Ontario. You should definitely stay away from making a sale in January and February, as houses sold in those months typically sell for about 5% less than the value of their home.

What taxes do I pay when selling a house in Ontario?

The amount of tax you’ll end up paying on a home in Ontario is largely predicated on your income and your willingness to jump through a few extra hoops. Capital gain taxes can range from 0 to 20%, and there are also local, state, and national taxes to contend with. Fortunately, the IRS is generally sympathetic to capital gains taxes, and with a little foresight, you can largely mitigate the cost with some smart deductions.

What’s the fastest way to sell a house in Ontario?

Your house will sell much better if you understand the market, but if you’re not willing to invest in a fairly robust real estate education, your fastest bet is to go with a private seller. Platforms like Sundae do away with fees entirely and provide you with a fair estimate and a hassle-free approach to selling a home. That’s especially valuable when you need money quickly and don’t have the time to handle the transaction yourself.

Recent Reviews From Customers Near Ontario

Hayes Galitski

Claremont, CA

“From our first contact through closing, Sundae was upfront, transparent, and professional. Ben Ginsberg was personable and thoroughly explained the process and basis for the offer he was authorized to extend to us - on the spot! This was after he toured our home, taking approximately 60 pictures and forwarding them to Sundae's design/sales/assessment team in realtime. The offer was reasonable, we didn't need to make any repairs or improvements, and we were able to negotiate our closing date to accommodate our needs. In short, the process was simple and straightforward; exactly as described by Sundae. If you're thinking of selling your home and don't want the hassle of listing, making repairs, and having showings, check out Sundae - you've got nothing to lose!”

Miles Beauchamp

LaMesa, CA

“We needed to move mom to an assisted living center and so many things were going on with the planning etc. The last thing we needed was to try and sell a house. Sundae made it simple and easy, transparent the whole way, and it worked seamlessly.”

Ed Raulston

Lancaster, CA

“I sold a rental property to Sundae. It needed to be rehabed and I didn't want to go through the work and take the time to do it. The folks at Sundae gave me a fare offer and closed on my terms, allowing my tenants to move out. Thank you for a great experience!”

Anonymous

Lincoln, CA

“Transaction was clean. Not happy with the lowball bid, based on an old listing, then they sell it above market, but that is the cash/flip business. Was a little disappointed with communication during the transaction, but they met all agreed timelines. You should consider them, if your economic needs dictate this type of transaction. They are really pretty good with follow through.”

Renee Reyes

Los Angeles, CA

“I'm so happy I choose Sundae to sell my house to. They were very friendly & easy to deal with. Very straightforward & made the whole process simple. Kevin kept me posted throughout the entire process. I felt I got the best offer for this kind of sale. Not having to deal with open houses or doing any repairs was exactly what I needed. And not having to pay any fees at all was fantastic, especially in the middle of a pandemic.”

Amparo Navalta

Los Angeles, CA

“Reliable & accommodating”

Sean Bielawski

Oceanside, CA

“Should have had more communication. Missed a drawer with a lot of cooking tools....and my refrigerator. Then embarrassed b6 an ad showing my house saying I walked over a ridiculously low rehab dollar figure that 2nd probably half to a third of what it took.”
