London Ontario Condominium Market 2018 & What To Expect in 2019


One of the best ways to understand the condominium market in London Ontario is to look at how many days these were on the market before being sold and what was the sale price percentage versus the asking price.

condo sales in London Ontario

Our real estate board LSTAR ( The London St.Thomas Association of REALTORS*) breaks London down into three geographical areas, North, South and East. ( I know, why not the West?) I plead silence with my opinion on why!

Sold Condominiums in London Ontario  2018
Area % of Asking Price Average Days on Market
North 102.2% 22
South 104.92% 17
East 103.49% 24

What does all this mean? The inventory of townhomes and townhouses for sale is low, and with more buyers than sellers, we see bidding wars, hence, higher sale prices. Apartment condos remain strong as well, and where townhouses and townhomes used to dominate the market, apartments are catching up, not only in the volume of sales but in price as well.

Is this a good time to sell a condominium? Yes!

For buyers, be prepared to act as there are more buyers than sellers, but do your homework and do not let emotion override prudence and common sense.

The hottest segment right now is the one floor detached or attached bungalow townhouse with a two car garage, seconded by attached townhouses.

What will 2019 bring?

2019 prediction condominium sales London Ontario

  Building permits for new construction are higher than ever for both high-rise buildings and townhouses and townhomes. Affordability is a powerful motivator for first-time buyers and downsizers over single-family homes.

  Until I can walk on water and be exact, all condominiums in London Ontario and area will experience a rise in prices because of demand.

Insider Tips When Selling a Home in London Ontario


 Over the years helping hundreds of home sellers successfully sell their home, we designed a series of checklists, a series on pricing, a series on the process and what to expect, from start to finish, the good and the bad. Our clients love it and I thought that you may as well.

 You see, we also work with hundreds of buyers as well and if you saw or knew what we see some sellers do or not do is amazing, and the unfortunate thing is, those sellers do not know they are not maximizing their sold price, their marketing and exposure of their home.

 This couple used our selling tips

   There are little subtle things that start to add up and if not checked in time, can mean the difference between your asking price & actual sale price and how much longer it will take your home to sell, not sell or unecessary problems that can occur!
