In June, 15 homes sold in Leaside, including 11 detached and 4 semis. The average time to sell a home was 9 days. One home sold out 2 days after it was listed while the longest lasted 28 days. This doesn't include the 11 homes that have been listed for more than 30 days or the 12 homes that were listed in the month of June and are not selling at their current listed prices.
Eight of the 15 June home sales sold at or above their listed price. The highest selling home was a detached 5-bedroom, 4-bathroom home on a 40x 123-foot lot, with a private drive and garage. It sold for $3,070,000 or 102% of the listing price on Bessborough Drive. This was followed by a home on the same area, which sold for $2,900,000.
Entry into the Leaside market now requires buyers to spend $1,100,000 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.
