LSTAR Home Sales Remain Strong
The London and St Thomas Association of REALTORS® (LSTAR) announced September achieved a record for residential sales, with 960 homes exchanging hands, up 25% compared to the same time a year ago. This represents the best results ever for September since the Association began tracking data in 1978.
"The strong momentum experienced during the summer months continued through September," said 2020 LSTAR President Blair Campbell. "Similar to many other housing markets across Canada, many are still playing catch up from the COVID-19 lockdown we had during the spring."
The average home sales price across the region also reached a new peak of $521,883, up 28% over September 2019 and up more than 98% compared to the same time five years ago.
"Each of the five major areas in LSTAR's jurisdiction posted gains, led by Middlesex with average sales price of $575,785,"Campbell said. "Again, it's important to note this figure encompasses all housing types, from a 2-storey single detached home to a high-rise apartment condominium."

WHAT MY CLIENTS THINK
"Brian has gone above and beyond the sale of my house. He is genuine, honest and straight forward. I have already given his name out to a few friends if they ever need a realtor."
"Brian was a great asset to me in the purchasing of my first new property by going above and beyond what I imagined. I’m extremely happy with the entire process. Even after the sale Brian continued to support me with advice and tips as new first home buyer. Brian’s knowledge in this sector made everything easy and fun!"
