Monthly Changes

During the month of December 2014, 4 homes changed hands in Leaside & Bennington Heights, which was up 100% from the 2 homes that sold in December 2013 and almost 63% less than the 11 homes that sold last month. The average dollar values of the December transactions were up 84% to $1,685,750 this is due to the very small number of sales, their averages and all being detached homes. There weren’t any semi-detached home sales in December. December is typically a slow month for real estate transactions.

There were 23 Bungalow sales in 2014. They started at $580,000 for a 25 foot by 100 foot lot in South Leaside on Eglinton Avenue. To the the most notable December sale, a North Leaside bungalow. It sold for a whopping $1,203,000 or 35% above the asking price. That is $106,000 more than at 31.5 foot by 135 foot bung a few doors down the street last June. That works out to about $35,000 per foot of frontage or $120,000 for the 3.5 foot deference between the 2 homes. This is a strong indicator that builders are bullish on the Leaside market for 2015. Expect to see some spectacular new homes in our neighbourhood for sale this year.

The highest valued sale on TREB MLS so far in 2014 was $3.2 million, for a home in Bennington Heights. The highest 2014 Leaside sale has been $2.7 million in South Leaside.
