Residential market analysis and a sampling of high- and low-priced listings in London

CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING London-area residential real estate trends since the region has ended the lockdown:
• Average Prices have fallen 4 per cent;
• New listings declined 30 per cent;
• Home sales declined 25 per cent;
• Days on market has increased by 40 per cent.
These statistics tell us that studying the market, searching for homes and investing in real estate have stopped being the most important activity of Ontario residents.
We’ve run from our homes in search of release, friendship, change and out-of-house experiences. Restaurants, resorts, campsites and beaches are packed. The lockdown saved tens of thousands of lives. It gave us time to achieve world-leading vaccination rates. And now we’re out enjoying the freedom this sacrifice afforded us.
Remember our houses have value because they are part of a growing, successful and vibrant community. The value of community is driven by our mutual sacrifices ― watching over each other, enforcing laws, building sidewalks, providing transit, controlling sprawl, saving trees, etc.
In pandemic times, to support our neighbours we wear masks, socially distance and most importantly, get vaccinated. If you are not vaccinated, you are a host and friend to the virus, perpetuating its existence. You help spread the virus, risking our children under the age of 12. You risk a fourth wave of the unvaccinated, once again putting all of us at risk for additional lockdowns, closed schools, challenged businesses and unnecessary illness.
The average London home has increased $250,000-plus in value over the last few years. That new wealth means nothing if your community isn’t healthy. It means nothing if the virus gets hold of you. Be a good neighbour, support our community, save yourself ― get vaccinated!
