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

WE’RE RAPIDLY APPROACHING the end of 2021. What did we learn in November? The average sale price is now $674,000-plus in the London area ― a 25 per cent jump over one year ago.
Imagine, after five years of exceptional price escalation, this past year we’ve increased another 25 per cent.
Why? More buyers pursuing fewer houses.
This year we’ve averaged 31 house sales per day. At this moment, we have 12 days of inventory. Ten years ago, we averaged 150 days inventory, and thus we had a stable market.
Today, with new listings selling in about eight days, a stable market is a dream. Each day, we sell as many houses as list, thus never gaining ground on this seller’s market.
Housing is a strained resource. This is true in both the sales and rental markets. It’s true in the agricultural, resort, cottage, investment, commercial and raw land categories, too. It’s universal. There is more money and there are more buyers chasing real estate than perhaps ever before.
For the foreseeable future, expect this market to be the new status quo. Manage your goals within the market you’re presented. Waiting out the market does not appear a viable strategy. Get help from a professional and put a plan together. Even now, success in real estate is achievable.
