April 2022 Real Estate Market in London Ontario Reflects Real Estate Fundamentals

Real Estate Fundamentals Exposes Supply and Demand, the herd mentality and people jumping into the market at the wrong time.

I am not alarmed at the latest sales figures for April 2022 in the London Ontario area. The # 1 rule in real estate is supply and demand, you can argue location, location, location all day long but until the cows come home or the roosters come to roost, supply and demand rules!

Over the past two days, all we see in the news is house prices slowing down, interest rates rising, a shortage of affordable homes and on and on. Yes that may be true or not but history does repeat itself; what goes up, must come down, just the same as gravity in London Ontario is the same as London England, but in London Ontario, we say thank you and in England they say bollocks!

In my rhetoric, clear-thinking buyers and sellers of real estate understand fundamentals, below are the London Ontario area stats.

In April 2022, 877 homes traded hands in the London-St. Thomas area and 1,069 new property listings were posted on the MLS® System of the London and St. Thomas Association of REALTORS® (LSTAR). The local housing supply bounced up to 1.2 months of inventory in April from only 0.6 months in March.

The following table shows how April’s average home sales prices in LSTAR’s five main regions compare to the benchmark prices for the same areas.

Our primary focus is guiding home buyers and sellers to make good decisions. We believe selling real estate is a process, not an event or knee-jerk reaction; we sleep well at night and ensure our clients do as well! We are not for everybody, nor can we please everybody, nor do we tell people what they want to hear; I know that may be old-fashioned and boring, but we are dealing with hundreds of thousands of your hard-earned money. Would you rather be happy, excited and bored or unhappy, excited and make a poor choice? About Ty I am a Broker with Sutton Group Preferred Realty Inc., Brokerage and the team leader for The Envelope Real Estate Group, that's enough about me! You see, this is about you, you do not want to hear blah blah stuff about awards, designations, or that we walk older adults across the street (I used to help old ladies cross the street, but as I got older I did not want my wife to think I was flirting) the reincarnation of Mother Teresa, walk on water or anything else to impress you. We let the numbers speak for themselves; success leaves clues!
