home sales continue to soar in february

 

The London and St Thomas Association of REALTORS® (LSTAR) announced residential sales achieved its best February results ever, since LSTAR began tracking sales data in 1978. A total of 763 homes were sold in February, an increase of 17% over the same period last year.

"We experienced another strong month, with year-to-date sales also up by 19.5%" said Jim Smith, LSTAR 2017 President. "Again, we're observing this trend of low supply and high demand, with February having a 9.8% decrease in the number of available listings, compared to this time last year. For those considering of putting their home on the market, the current conditions are very encouraging."

In February, a total of 597 detached homes were sold, an increase of 15% over the previous year, while there were 166 condominium sales, up 24.8% from 2016. The average sales price was $307,831 up 7.9% from the previous month.

"Overall, we experienced a mild February in terms of weather, which also played in factor in helping the strong performance throughout the month,” Smith said. “And we continue to see robust activity in the condominium market, with a quarter more units sold."

St. Thomas also had a very healthy February, with a total of 69 homes sold, up 25.5% from the same time last year. The average home price in St. Thomas was $242,028, up 25.7% from the previous month.

Bungalow 70 $229,471
Ranch 53 $372,968
Townhouse 64 $206,166

The best-selling house style in February continues to be the two-storey, followed by the bungalow and ranch. The average price for a detached home in February was $327,754, up 4.4% from the previous month, while the average price for a condominium was $236,180, up 19.8% from the previous month.
