SOLD In Arkona ~ Vacant Residential Lot

November Marks Another Record Month for Home Sales

The London and St. Thomas Association of REALTORS® (LSTAR) announced 854 homes exchanged hands in November, achieving another monthly record for residential sales. Sales were up more than 33% compared to the same time a year ago, marking the best results ever for November, since the Association began tracking data in 1978.

"This is the third consecutive month of record sales, demonstrating how robust the housing marketplace is right now," said LSTAR 2020 President Blair Campbell. "We continue to see increases in average sales price across the region in a market with historically low supply."

Inventory is an important measure of the balance between sales and the supply of listings, illustrating how long it would take to liquidate existing inventories at the current rate of sales activity.

"At the end of November, there were 0.7 months of inventory across the entire LSTAR jurisdiction, which is the lowest level in the past 10 years," Campbell said. "Out of the five main areas, St. Thomas had the lowest level at 0.5 months of inventory, while London was at 0.6."

Another important measure is the sales-to-new listings ratio. It was 108.4% for LSTAR, which the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) says represents conditions in the marketplace that favour sellers (a ratio between 40% and 60% is generally consistent with a balanced market). LSTAR's five areas all recorded sales-to-new listings ratios over 100%, with the highest seen in Elgin County at 121.4% and St. Thomas at 113.8%.

The following table shows last month's average home prices by area and how they compare to the values recorded at the end of November 2019.

December Newsletter ~ The PEDLAR Team Update


Its A Winter Wonderland
To Start December!


Hope everyone is staying warm at home today as the snow continues to come down in Grand Bend and area. If your out on the roads make sure to take it easy and leave some extra time for the drive.

Crazy to think we are already in December and even though we spent a couple months in lockdown that some how the year still flys by before we know it. This holiday season is certainly going to be a strange one compared to what we are use to. Thankfully for technology our friends and family are only a call away and make sure to call everyone on the list as this year has been a difficult and stressful time for everyone.

CUTENESS OVERLOAD ALERT ... Throwback to last Christmas when Chloe was helping Robyn decorate for the holidays!

RE/MAX 2021 National Housing Outlook


RE/MAX Canada is anticipating healthy housing price growth in 2021, with move-up and move-over buyers continuing to drive activity in many regions across the Canadian housing market. An ongoing housing supply shortage is likely to continue, presenting challenges for homebuyers and putting upward pressure on prices. Due to these factors, the 2021 RE/MAX Housing Market Outlook Report estimates a four to six per cent increase in the average residential sales price nation-wide.

RE/MAX & Children's Miracle Network

Another way we like to give back to our community is by donating to the local Children's Miracle Network. With every sale or purchase of a home we donate a portion to the CMN. 

For some, making it out the door on time is nothing short of a miracle. For others, miracles are life-changing events that alter your life the moment they happen. At RE/MAX, our agents make miracles happen every day, through the sale of every home.

When you spot the iconic red, white, and blue sign standing proudly on the front lawn of a home that is for sale, you may also notice a special addition that advertises it as a Miracle Home. Sure, small miracles happen at home every day, but what makes this home so special? That sign rider that stands tall above the sign lets you know that the RE/MAX Agent is not just any agent, they are a Miracle Agent who generously donates a portion of the sale of each home to the Children’s Miracle Network member hospital in their community.

RE/MAX is proud to celebrate its support of the Children’s Miracle Network for more than 25 years! In Canada alone, our dedicated agents, whose deep commitment to community involvement, help raise millions of dollars each year through various initiatives. Now that is something to celebrate!
