best august on record

 

Just one short of a thousand homes exchanged hands in August 2016, making last month the best August on record for the London and St. Thomas Association of REALTORS®. "This has been an absolutely outstanding year for real estate in our area," "We've seen the best April ever, the best June ever and now the best August ever – all in 2016." 804 detached homes sold last month along with 195 condos. Year-to-Date sales are up 9.1%.

Inventory was down 29.4%. "Supply continues tight and demand high," says Carpenter. "If you're thinking of listing your home, consider the fall market."

Sixty two homes sold in St. Thomas in August, slightly short of the total for last August. "You have to bear in mind that last year was the best August for St. Thomas since 2007," cautions Carpenter. The average price for a home in St. Thomas Year-to-Date stands at $225,317, up 3.9%.

The best-selling house style in LSTAR's jurisdiction for August 2016 was the two-storey, then the bungalow, followed by ranches, then townhouse condominiums, then high rise apartment condos. The average price for a detached home Year-to-Date stood at $295,078 up 4.6%, while the average price for a condo over the same period stood at $201,393, up 6.1%.
