As of October 3, 2019, there are 25 homes on the market in the Leaside (C11) area, ranging in price from $899,800 for an attached home on Millwood Road (4 days on the market) to $4,188,000 for a lovely detached home on Douglas Crescent (27 days on the market).
Last month, Leaside properties sold an average of 7 days after listing. One home on Leadale Avenue sold one day after it officially entered the market, while the longest lasted 37 days. This doesn’t include the five homes that have been listed for more than 30 days or the sixteen homes that were listed in the month of September and are not selling at their current prices.
Four 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 36.52’ x 145’ lot with a private drive and garage on Hanna Road. It sold for $4,300,000, or 121 % of the original listing price. Another home on the same street sold for the same price, marking 116% of the owner’s initial ask.
Entry into the Leaside market now requires buyers to spend $1,000,000 for a semi-detached and at least $1,300,000 for a detached home. Buyers continue to look for homes in midtown while low inventory endures as the main driver of competitive bidding.
