LONDON – February 1, 2010
Evidence that market is stabilizing
In January 2010, 472 homes exchanged hands in the jurisdiction of the London and St.
Thomas Association of REALTORS (LSTAR). “Given that the ten-year average for
January home sales is 450, I’d have to say that last month’s sales were right in line with
those of previous Januarys,” observes LSTAR President Richard Thyssen. “And that’s a
high average, given peak years in 2006 and 2007. While it’s still early days, better
numbers in October, November and December 2009 and now in January 2010 may
indicate that the market is beginning to stabilize.”
This month’s sales include 377 detached homes (up 53.9 % from January 2009) and 95
condos (up 58.3 % from January 2009). “Although these percentage increases seem
large, you have to remember that January 2009 was down 35% from January 2008,”
explains Thyssen. “Last January’s figures told us that we were in a significant downturn.
Today’s tell us that we are in recovery.” The following table sets out number of units
sold in the month of January over the previous decade.

Sales in St. Thomas, London’s sister community, tell a similar tale of decline and
rebound. – 37 homes exchanged hands in January 2010, up 60.9% from the previous
year. However, as was the case with London, St. Thomas sales in January 2009 were
unusually low at 23, compared to 36 in 2008 and 52 in 2007.
The average price of a detached home in January 2010 was $235,416, up 3.1% over
December 2009, while the average price of a condo rose 7.3% to $172,722. The average

“Sales activity in 2009 came in like a lamb and went out like a lion, “said CREA
President Dale Ripplinger. “The continuation of unusually low interest rates may keep
national sales activity near current levels over the coming months, as will a blip in
housing demand in Ontario and British Columbia from homebuyers motivated to beat the
introduction of the HST”
