As of June 4th, 2018, there are 12 homes available in the Lawrence Park area, ranging in price from $1,876,000 for a detached home on Lawrence Avenue East (21 days on the market) to $8,895,000 for a detached home on Blyth Hill Road (35 days on the market).
In May, 6 homes sold in Lawrence Park, and all 6 were detached. The average time to sell a home was 15 days, with the fastest home sale being a 152 Strathgowan Avenue property, which sold two days after it was listed. The longest-lasting property sold 37 days after being listed. These figures don’t include the 7 homes that have been listed for more than 30 days, or the 5 homes that were listed in the month of May and are not selling at their current listed prices.
Four of the 6 May home sales sold at or above their listed price. The highest selling home was a detached 4-bedroom, 6-bathroom home on a 50 x 150-foot lot on Rochester Avenue, with a double private drive and garage. It sold for $5,425,000 (94% of the asking price) and was followed by a home on St. Ives Crescent which sold for $4,195,000. Both were magnificent homes.
Entry into the Lawrence Park market now requires buyers to spend over $1,800,000 dollars. The average sale price over the last 17 months (January 1, 2017 to May 31, 2018) has been $3,806,640, and those homes averaged 3% above their asking prices. Comparing May 2018 to May 2017, we see that last year was far busier, with 10 homes selling for an average of 1% above their asking prices.
Buyers continue to look for homes in midtown while low inventory will continue to drive bidding on homes.
