March Sales are Warming up!
The London Free Press just released this article about the London Market, saying the area real estate market showed some signs of improvement last month after a chilly winter. The London and St. Thomas Association of Realtors (LSTAR) said 647 detached homes and 162 condos sold last month for a total of 809. That's still down 5.8% from the same month last year but is an improvement over the last three months when sales were down 9-13% LSTAR president Jack Lane called the March numbers "solid." "Considering how much miserable weather we had in March, I think these numbers speak to the strength of our market and I expect this positive trend to continue throughout the year," he said. Lane noted the number of sales was just below the ten-year average sales for March of 813 homes.
