PRIME MARKET UPDATE: OCOTOBER 2018

home sales remain strong in september

October 4, 2018

London and St. Thomas Association of REALTORS® (LSTAR) announced 776 homes* were sold in September, down 6.1% over the same month last year. The number of home resales are above the 10-year average, despite low inventory in the marketplace.

“All year we’ve been managing the challenges of low supply and it continues to impact home resales,” said Jeff Nethercott, 2018 LSTAR President. “What we did experience was a large increase in the average price for resale activity. In September, the average sales price was $386,520, up 21.0% compared to a year ago, and up 57.9%, compared to just five years ago.”

All major London centres saw jumps in their average sales price in September. Making the biggest gain was London North, where the average sales price was $498,138, up 28.1% from 2017 and up 70.5% compared to five years ago. In London South (which also includes data from the west side of the city) had an average sales price of $385,635, up 18.0% from 2017 and up 48.8% compared to five years ago.

Meanwhile, London East saw an average sales price of $302,452, up 10% from last September and up 51.4% compared to five years ago. It’s only the second time in the last 10 years that London East had an average sales price above $300,000.

“While the average price for home resales may be on the rise, inventory (what is called active listings) continues to decline,” Nethercott said. “Last month, there were 1,640 active listings in LSTAR’s jurisdiction, marking the lowest level of September inventory in the past 10 years. The sales-to-new listings ratio was 64.5%, which the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) says represents conditions in the marketplace that favour sellers (a ratio between 40% and 60% is generally consistent with a balanced market). Breaking it down further by geography, London East had a sales-to-new listings ratio of 76.8%.”

In St. Thomas, the sales-to-new listings ratio was 107.2%, with a total of 74 homes sold in September, up 8.8% from the same time last year. The average home sales price in St. Thomas was $321,473 up 20.2% from September 2017 and up 69.9% compared to five years ago. This is the highest average sales price St. Thomas has experienced in the past 10 years.

According to a research report1, one job is created for every three real estate transactions and approximately $53,000 in ancillary spending is generated each time a home changes hands in Ontario. “It is critical to understand the huge economic impact the business of real estate makes across the entire region and beyond,” Nethercott said. “The September resale activity has generated potentially more than $41 million and helped create approximately 258 jobs, affecting every facet of real estate, from retailers to contractors, and manufacturers. We cannot underestimate the contributions this profession delivers to the community.”

The London and St. Thomas Association of REALTORS® (LSTAR) exists to provide its REALTOR® Members with the support and tools they need to succeed in their profession. LSTAR is one of Canada’s 15 largest real estate associations, representing over 1,700 REALTORS® working in Middlesex and Elgin Counties, a trading area of 500,000 residents. LSTAR adheres to a Quality of Life philosophy, supporting growth that fosters economic vitality, provides housing opportunities, respects the environment and builds good communities and safe neighbourhoods and is a proud participant in the REALTORS Care Foundation’s Every REALTOR™ Campaign. *These statistics are prepared for LSTAR by the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) and represent a data snapshot taken on October 1, 2018, based on processed home sales activity between September 1 and 30, 2018.

FEATURE POST: BLUEJAY IRRIGATION

By properly taking care of your lawn in the fall, you prepare it for a healthy and boisterous start in the spring. In turn, this means less future hassle and less wondering why your lawn isn’t flourishing like it should. 


So, what should you be doing in the fall? Here are our top fall lawn care tips to get you started!


Rake The Leaves


Or use a blower to get rid of them. If you don’t get rid of the leaves before the snow comes, it will kill your lawn. It blocks the light from reaching the grass and traps moisture underneath. Make sure you do this every year!


Continue to Mow and Water Your Lawn


Keeping the leaves in check is step 1. Step 2 is keeping up with the mowing and watering of your lawn. The grass doesn’t necessarily stop growing with slightly cooler weather. In fact, it may continue to grow up until that first frosty night. Regularly mowing will keep your lawn healthy. Further, if rain isn’t in the forecast, continue to water your lawn. A lot of people make the mistake of quitting mowing and watering too early - then they wonder where they went wrong come springtime. 


Aerate Your Lawn


Fall aeration is ideal. It prevents the soil from becoming too compacted, and also helps keep your lawn in tip-top shape by allowing ways for fertilizer and water to get through. Try to make aeration an annual affair. If not every year, aim for at least every 2 years to get your lawn aerated.


Go Ahead and Fertilize 


Not many people are aware that fertilizing your lawn in the fall is just important as fertilizing it in the spring. It sets you up for a healthy lawn come springtime of the following year. Get into the habit of doing this in the fall, as well as the spring.


Pull the Weeds and Add the Seed


Pull up any weeds leftover before the snow and frost set in. And make sure to add new grass seeds to encourage growth in the spring. It will also help prevent those bare and unhealthy patches from forming after the snow melts. 


Have an Irrigation System? It is Time to Winterize


Properly closing your irrigation system before the freezing winter temperatures come is one of the most important components in maintaining your irrigation system. 


Make sure to follow the above fall lawn care tips to achieve a healthy and hassle-free lawn come spring. Your future self will thank you for it!

Market Update June 20th 2018- THE END OF THE WORLD

home sales strong in may, with best monthly numbers in 2018
June 5, 2018

The London and St Thomas Association of REALTORS® (LSTAR) announced 1,171 homes* were sold in May, down 24.4% over the same time last year, which saw a record-setting month for May with 1,549 homes sold. The May 2017 home sales stands as the highest ever sales month in LSTAR’s history, since the Association began tracking sales data in 1978.

"We're very encouraged by the sales in May, which represent the third best May results LSTAR has had," said Jeff Nethercott, 2018 LSTAR President. "The homes sold are actually above the 10-year average, despite the ongoing challenge of low inventory in the marketplace. Similar to what’s happened each month this year, home prices continue to gradually increase across the region, as fewer homes are available for sale.”

The average May sales price in London and St. Thomas was $366,096 up 6.4% over May 2017 and up 28.4% over May 2016. By geographic area, London South was $370,851 up 4.4% from last May. In London North, average home sales price was $451,556 up 4.7% compared to the previous year, while in London East, it was $291,359 an increase of 11.1% from May 2017. In St. Thomas, it was $288,723 up 11.2% over last May.

"The big trend we continue to see in the marketplace is low inventory, which remains at its lowest level in 10 years," Nethercott said. "In May, there were 1,643 active listings, down 7.7% from this time last year and down 44.6% from May 2016. The sales-to-new listings ratio was 70.8%, which the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) says represents conditions in the marketplace that favour sellers. With warmer temperatures and summer around the corner, it's a great time to contact your local REALTOR® if you're considering selling your home."

St. Thomas saw a total of 100 homes sold in May, down 12.3% from the same period last year. For inventory, there were 82 active listings, down 28.1% from last May and down 49.7% from May 2016.

The following chart is based on data taken from the CREA National MLS® Report for April 2018 (the latest CREA statistics available). It provides a snapshot of how average home prices in London and St. Thomas compare to other major Ontario and Canadian centres.

#THECLOSERSDAILY : EPISODE 281: HOW MUCH IS THAT PLACE WORTH

So, the market's getting crazy again. We covered that in yesterday's episode. The multiple offers are back, limited inventory is driving buyers to be a little bit emotional. We we're gonna give you guys a tip on how to navigate a seller's market. And the first tip we're gonna give you guys this week is gonna be, don't get caught up on the list price. So list price is put there by the listing agent to generate interest. Sometimes they're listing at market value, sometimes above, sometimes under. A lot of times in the seller's market they are doing it under market on purpose to generate as much interest as possible. The more offers they get, the more likelihood that they're gonna get above-market value with no conditions. Which is a dream for any seller out there. So say a property is worth 300 and they price it at 280, some of the people going in and writing offers on that property are gonna get stuck mentally on the 280, when the smart agents that are out there are gonna look at the property value and see where it's actually gonna sell. So just be aware of what the property is worth and don't necessarily get caught up on the listing price.

#THECLOSERSDAILY : EPISODE 280: HOW IS THE MARKET?

So the question on everybody's mind right now is how is the market? We got another viewer request, and this is something that's coming up in day to day conversations because people didn't know where the market was gonna head. Well, if you really wanna know, you're gonna wanna watch out full blown Market Update. They're typically anywhere from 20 minutes to 45. Guest questions and everything else this week, so make sure you jump over to our Facebook page. But short and sweet, it's getting crazy out there again. So last year, if you were paying attention January 'til about June-ish, the market went bananas in London and surrounding area. And whether you're in London specifically or you're within that range, you're gonna wanna pay attention to what's happening over the next two to three weeks. Now that the weather's cracked, we're starting to see everything going multiple offers, inventory shrinking, so pay attention 'cause I think things are about to get even crazier.

#THECLOSERSDAILY : EPISODE 279: INSURED vs. NOT

Hi everyone, it's Mandy from Mortgage Wise Financial. Justin Konikow from The Closers asked me to reach out and touch on a topic that some of his clients and my clients have been asking, what is the difference between an insured and a conventional mortgage. So here you have it, an insured mortgage is protected by CMHC Genworth Canada Guaranty, therefore meaning that the lender is protected. A conventional mortgage isn't, therefore meaning that you may see a little bit higher rates with your conventional mortgage. Guys, if you have any questions, please reach out to me or the guys as Mortgage Wise Financial. We'd love to help you out.

Disclaimer: "Although care has been taken to ensure the accuracy, completeness and reliability of the information provided, we assume all information is subject to change and should be verified independently by the buyer and their agents.”

#THECLOSERSDAILY : EPISODE 278: PANICKED SELLER

So what do you do if you have a house to sell but you found the perfect place that you wanna move to and you don't wanna risk not being able to sell your house? Well, what you do in real estate typically is include what's called a condition of home sale clause. This clause gives you the ability to firm up on a deal but still have an out where if your house doesn't sell, you can escape the contract and walk away from the deal. What the seller's likely gonna include is what's called a 48 hour waiver clause meaning that they can continue to market the property, and if they accept another offer, you have 24 or 48 hours, whatever you negotiate to firm up on your original deal. Now, we had a question from an audience member is if I locked up a property for let's say 400 and then somebody comes in and pays 500, doesn't that mean that I'll have to pay more? No, your escape clause is for you. So if you waive that clause, deal goes firm, you get it at 400, and you'll have a super upset seller knowing that they coulda got more money. Now, you have to determine is it worth risking waiving that clause, and is your property still gonna sell? Part two coming tomorrow.

#THECLOSERSDAILY : EPISODE 277: NOT YOUR SELF GURU

So the last thing I am is any type of motivational speaker or Stuart Smiley character from Saturday Night Live trying to just send you quotes every day and tell you gosh darn it, people like you. What I am trying to do is share glimpses I see into other world of top producers and people that do things that seem impossible but make your realize that you're just as good as anybody else out there. There's a guy named David Goggins out there, and I, Navy Seal, ultra marathon runner, apex guy that you think, man, there's no way I could ever do what that guy's doing, but I actually just listened to his interview on Joe Rogan's podcast. Go give that a download and a listen. And you'll be shocked. The guy was actually spraying cockroaches in restaurants in the States, living a life after child abuse and all kinds of crazy stuff. I'm not even gonna get into it.

Disclaimer: "Although care has been taken to ensure the accuracy, completeness and reliability of the information provided, we assume all information is subject to change and should be verified independently by the buyer and their agents.”

#THECLOSERSDAILY : EPISODE 276: IS #THECLOSERSDAILY OVER?

So you may have noticed we didn't shoot The Closers Daily for three days. We actually got a DM from one of the audience members asking us if the show was over, and no, it's not. We actually wanna tie it into this episode, and what it has to do with is making sure you're taking time to take care of things in your life other than just the work side of things or things you are maybe super passionate about like we are with real estate. You know, we had the long weekend. We had Family Day on Monday, and we had Saturday and Sunday, and typically what we do is we'll post a Closers Daily Monday to Friday. We actually have a tweak in the programming coming up you guys'll be really excited to see in the next couple weeks. But in the interim, we actually take holidays and the weekends off for two reasons. One, we wanna make sure that we do have that focus time with our families. You know, the team is always working, always out there doing stuff, but you gotta take that downtime and make sure that you're recharging your batteries, and you know what? We end up getting more ideas in our downtime than we do even working in the field day to day. So hopefully that answers your questions. Stay tuned. We have some fun stuff coming for you guys.
