This doesn’t include the five homes that have been listed for more than 30 days or the eight homes that were listed in the month of February and have yet to sell at their current prices.
Nine homes sold at or above their initial asking prices. Last month’s most valuable Leaside sale involved a detached 4-bedroom, 5-bathroom home on a 35 x 100-foot lot, with a private drive and garage on Sutherland Drive. It sold for $2,785,000 which was 100% of the initial asking price. It was followed by a home on Burnham Road which sold for $2,750,000 which was 110% of the initial listing price.
Entry into the Leaside market now requires buyers to spend at least $1,600,000 for either a detached or semi-detached home. Buyers continue to look for homes in midtown while low inventory endures as the main driver of competitive bidding.
