February sales solid in the area...
Despite record-breaking cold, a total of 535 homes sold in February. "Given that the average number of February sales over the past decade stands at 489, I think it's fair to describe February 2015 as a good, solid month for home sales," says Carl Vandergoot, President of the London and St. Thomas Association of REALTORS®.
Also up for February were listings by 6.2% - while inventory - active listings end of period – was down a marginal 1.3%. The market continues to be a balanced one.
The average price of a home in the Association's entire jurisdiction, which includes Middlesex and Elgin Counties, stands at $248,056 Year-to-Date, down 2.4%. "This is an average price, rather than a median,” explains Vandergoot. "The figure will fluctuate based on what is sold at what price in any given month."
