Toronto Real Estate – House Prices for the start of 2016

 

The Weir Team helps real estate buyers and sellers all across the GTA and Durham Region. One area that we have a tremendous amount of experience with is the increasingly popular Toronto neighbourhood of Leslieville.

Located just to the east of Toronto’s downtown core, young couples and young families continue to eye this diverse area with hopes of calling it home. Real estate homeowners have seen property values in Leslieville skyrocket. But with that success comes the pain for many buyers who continue to lose bidding wars and cling to hope that they can still afford a detached or semi detached house in Leslieville.

Since Cameron Weir and Scott Hanton continue to help so many buyers find the perfect place in Leslieville, we thought it’d be a good idea to take a closer look at property values for specific pockets of Leslieville. For example, north and south of Gerrard Street or east or west of Greenwood Avenue can all be better, worse, more valuable or less valuable for a variety of reasons.

We’re seeing a tremendous increase in house values so far this year. And that’s no different with our listings, especially thanks to our tailor-made gold package listing service.

Here is sampling of a few recent homes we’ve sold in the area:

55 Kerr Road

62 Kerr Road

119 Craven Road

109 Kent Road

140 Leslie Street

102 Knox Avenue

159 Oakcrest Avenue

26 Alton Avenue

107 Ashdale Avenue

307 Woodfield Road

252 Woodfield Road

132 Ashdale Avenue

12 Walpole Avenue

345 Ashdale Avenue

109 Riverdale Avenue

98 Hiawatha Road

The Leslieville neighbourhood to focus on now will be the area east of Greenwood, south of Dundas, west of Coxwell and north of Queen.

Within that quadrant, let’s examine property values for Billings Avenue, Hertle Avenue, Kerr Road, Highfield Road, Coxwell Avenue, Cherry Nook Gardens, Vancouver Avenue, Woodfield Road, Kent Road, Ashdale Avenue, Craven Road and Rhodes Avenue.

From January 1 to March 31, 2016, according to the Toronto Real Estate Board’s MLS system:

-only 9 properties were sold in this area of Leslieville

-the average selling price of all home sold was $692,444

So what sort of difference would it make if there were no parking or no basement? What about 2-storey versus 3-storey? One bathroom or two?
