Nine hundred and fifty homes exchanged hands in July 2008, making last month the second best July for home sales since the London and St. Thomas Association of REALTORS. (LSTAR) began keeping records in 1978. The best July on record was in 2007, when 1,009 homes exchanged hands. “Despite reports to the contrary, local-area home sales continue to perform extremely well this year,” comments Bruce Sworik, LSTAR President. Nice to see the market has not gone "south"!
