October 2019 Home Sales in London Ontario Sets a Record

    The London St.Thomas Association of Realtors (LSTAR) residential sales activity hit a new record in October, with 928 homes1 exchanging hands. This brings the total number of 2019 London Ontario and area MLS home sales to 8,909, 3.4% higher than the October 2018 year-to-date figures.

    This was the best October on record.

    The number of active listings saw a slight year-over-year uptick in October – from 1,596 in 2018 to 1,716 in 2019, but stayed well below the 10-year average. The sales to new listings ratio for the entire Association’s jurisdiction sat at 79.5% last month, 2.4% higher than in October 2018, but still a seller’s market.

    Overall, the average home price was $412,883. This represents an 8.7% increase over October 2018 but is slightly lower than the August average home price of $413,000.
