Eight of the 17 October home sales sold at or above their listed price. Last month’s most valuable home sale was a detached 4-bedroom, 6-bathroom home on a 34’ x 165’ Roxville Avenue lot with a private driveway and garage. It sold for $3,645,000, or 100% of the original listing price. This was followed by a home on Glenvale Boulevard, which sold for $2,550,000.
Entry into the Leaside market now requires buyers to spend $1,000,000 for a semi-detached home and at least $1,100,000 for a detached home. Buyers continue to look for homes in midtown while low inventory endures as a main driver of competitive bidding.
