Oakridge London Ontario Real Estate

   336 houses in Oakridge London Ontario were sold through MLS in 2017 for a median selling price of 102.8% of the asking price and these took about 7 days to sell. 

 130 condos in Oakridge sold as well, from apartment style to one and two floor townhouses & townhomes. These were on the market for a median of 13 days and sold  for 101.81%  of the asking price!
 I have prepared a breakdown of these sales , such as prices, days on the market and few other tidbits you might find helpful , you can get these reports by scrolling down this page.

All the houses & condos in Oakridge London Ontario For Sale on MLS

   295 houses in Oakridge were sold in 2016  through our local MLS starting at $270,000 all the way up to $740,000 and Oakridge was no different than the rest of London Ontario, a shortage of quality homes for sale saw these 295 houses sell very close for the asking price and in some cases for more and took about 19 days to sell!

  105 condos in Oakridge were sold through MLS in 2016, from as low as $122,000 and up to $669,000  which was about 99.6% of the asking price and on the market 25 days! 

 What do these numbers indicate? There are buyers willing to buy and seller's who price their homes at the market price will get 99-101% of their asking price. Pretty simple, yet, I hear of buyers who think they can  get 10-15% off the asking price and a few misquided sellers who think their home is worth more than the other homes that have sold in their neighbourhood!

     More and more people are returning to their roots, buying these homes in Oakridge where they grew up, having large, deep lots and renovating them to meet their aging lifestyles. I have had many clients buy these 60's and 70’s homes and upgrade them with modern kitchens, larger bedrooms and bathrooms.

   Oakridge Acres, Oakridge Meadows & Oakridge Park are neighbourhoods in north west London (with a few small patches of 10 year old or less homes) with large lots, mature trees and very few cookie cutter streets.

Oakridge London Ontario Facts & Real Estate Good Practices

  In this so called information age, is there too much information? Could be, but I am alarmed by the amount of false information that is out there, especially when it comes to real estate.

   Oakridge London Ontario Real Estate Facts

  I speak with London home buyers and home sellers every day and the questions I get asked, the perceptions they have and in some cases, a real estate market belief system so strongly embedded that in time could be harmful to their financial wellbeing.

  If people hear the same thing, read the same thing or misunderstand something enough times, they believe it without asking the best question of all: "Is it true?"

 If someone was thinking of selling their home in Oakridge or buying a house or condo in Oakridge, would it not make sense to know the facts & make a decision rather than basing a decision on guesswork, false perceptions and emotional bravado?

Oakridge London Ontario & Downsizing

       Downsizing or Right Sizing Your Oakridge Area Home - Keep it Simple

      Downsizing your Oakridge London Ontario house

   Life changes—children grow up and leave home, we don’t need as much space, and our financial means may change. Any of these reasons may prompt us to consider downsizing: reducing our possessions and moving to a smaller home.

   If you’re contemplating making such a change, take time to evaluate the many facets involved. Downsizing is an important transition requiring careful consideration.

    What’s involved? Relocating to a new home that’s more suitable to your current needs requires well-planned steps, including financial planning and paring down your possessions. Social and health considerations also play a role. Like any long-term commitment, consider the benefits and limitations a new home will provide.

    I have amassed a few of my old blogs and put them into a page that may offer you an insight about finances, letting go, challenges, downsizing dos and as an added feature "The Hidden Costs of Downsizing!


 Why Selling a House in Oakridge Could be Stressful if You Allow It To Be

 Have you ever tried to make your way through a corn maze out in the country? If you don’t know the layout, it’s probably going to take you a long time to find your way through. You’ll hit a lot of dead ends, go around in circles a few times, and maybe even become frustrated before you finally find your way out.

           what to do

  The same can be said about selling a home in London Ontario.

  Real estate transactions are probably not something you do every day, so you’re not as familiar with their “layout”. As a result, the process of preparing your home for sale, getting it listed, dealing with viewings and buyers, and negotiating offers can potentially be very stressful… so stressful, in fact, you might be discouraged from making a move!

  That’s why finding someone who knows your local market is so important. He or she knows the maze and can guide you through it.

As well, selling your home in Oakridge Ontario properly and for the lowest possible fee should be the norm.

 buying a home in Oakridge


             If you knew before hand some helpful strategies before buying a house or a condo, do you think you may be able to get a better price or at least know you did not over pay? That the Realtor you have chosen to work with will be an asset and not a chain around your feet? That you will usually have the first chance to view a home before others get a chance?

   Over the years I have listened to the questions hundreds of buyers have asked me, I have got to understand their concerns and at times, the fear of the unknown. I put together some of the major points that should help guide a buyer through the process, perhaps open their mind to other possibilities and even what questions they may want straight answers.

Sifton Bog

Sifton Bog in London Ontario

Sifton Bog is located on the south side of Oxford Street, west of Hyde Park Road

  The main feature of this public site is the floating acid peat bog and associated boreal plant life. Deciduous swamp and upland forest surround the bog, providing a sharp contrast between the northern (boreal) and southern (Carolinian) vegetation types.

   There is a variety of trails within this site, totaling 2.5 km. A 370-metre long boardwalk leads from the parking lot at Oxford Street to Redmond’s Pond at the centre of the bog, where there is a viewing platform. Most of the trails are easy to walk, but there are a couple of short hills.
