What does it say for land prices in Leaside when only five semi-detached homes were sold in Leaside this past October for an average of $1,151,000? That high number was caused partly by two semis across from Trace Manes Park, which were listed for $1,698,000 each.

More proof that so far there’s no softening of the real estate market in Leaside and Bennington Heights:

This past October a total of 20 homes were sold compared to 27 the previous October, with the average price of those 20 homes $1,556,617. That was a whopping 23.6 percent rise in the average price.

The increase was even higher for detached homes, up 29.8 percent to an average of $1,731,238.

The figures for the current October to October 12-month period are much smaller for average price, only 4.9 percent higher, but the total number of sales was down by 30.8 percent for the previous October to October.
