Last month, five homes sold in Davisville, including one detached and four semi-detached homes. The average time to sell a home was 14 days; one home on Thurston Road sold two days after it was listed, while the longest lasted 29 days on the market. This doesn't include the four homes that had been listed for more than 30 days or the five homes that were listed in the month of August and are not selling at their current listed prices.
Only one of the five August home sales sold at or above their listed price. The highest-selling home was a detached 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom home on a 25 x 128 - foot lot with a mutual drive and garage on Manor Road East. It sold for $1,520,000 (96% of the asking price). It was followed by a home on Millwood Road which sold for $1,240,000 (3% above the asking price).
Entry into the Davisville Village market now requires buyers to spend over a million dollars for a semi-detached home and at least $1,200,000 for a detached home. Buyers continue to look for homes in midtown while low inventory still continues to drive bidding on homes.
