Leaside Press Release - January 2015 from Jethro Seymour, one of the best Toronto midtown agents

Leaside & Bennington Heights January 2016 Home Sales Statistics

During the month of January 2016, only 3 homes changed hands in Davisville Village.  That is just 5 homes in the last 2 months.  We expect the coming year to be similar to 2015. Our low interest rate environment is expected to hold for most of the coming year.  Anticipate the housing market to pick up pace in late February and continue to build steam until March Break. The second part of the spring market will start in early April after Easter.

This lack of inventory will push some buyers to pay more for the limited amount of housing stock in the early part of the spring market. We have already seen several homes sell with multiple offers, well above the asking price.

We will see several newly constructed homes surpass the $2 million threshold this year. If you are considering selling your home and want expert advice, call me for a confidential consultation. Tight supply in Leaside & Bennington Heights home sales keep values climbing

January Monthly Changes

During the month of January 2016, 9 detached homes changed hands in Leaside & Bennington Heights.

Low Leaside inventory has resulted in Sellers reaping the benefits of multiple offers!

Lot values in North Leaside seem to have risen above the $1.3 million mark for homes with 30’ frontages. A south Leaside bungalow with a 30’ frontage recently sold for over $1.3 million –  suggesting that builders are still finding value in the neighbourhood. Thus far in 2016, the first 13 homes sold went 9% higher on average than the asking price, and in just 9 days. The highest valued sale on TREB MLS so far in 2016 was $1.761 million for a home on Leacrest Road in South Leaside. There are currently 14 listings available in Leaside, including a 41’ storefront on Bayview for $2.5m.

I have two exclusively listed homes for sale which are ideal for a builder or renovator. Call me for the details. When you are ready to make your next move, I am here for you and your family.

    He was very creative in his negotiation tactics

    "We’ve had two experiences with Jethro. We bought our first house with him and then sold it to buy the one we’re in now. We’ve been very happy both times. When we first started our search, we were looking for an agent to help us. We actually interviewed a couple real estate agents and Jethro was one of them. We were impressed with his professionalism and he seemed to know the business really well.

    Jethro knows the market well and was able to point us in the right direction. At first,..."
