Have you been thinking of moving to Byron, a family neigbourhood in south London that offers a lifestyle away from the hustle and bustle, yet minutes to downtown London?
A London neighbourhood that has Springbank Park and the Thames River, Boler Mountain (a ski and mountain bike area known to the locals as “the bump”), every kind of church you can think of,(if not church, a few restaurant bars ), a library, a fire hall, a legion, a Masonic hall and more.
Some great shopping, bistros and dining, professional offices, medical, drugstores, an LCBO (known to the locals as the “personality changer”), jewelers, drycleaners and more.
Easy access to the 401, 403, Lake Huron or Lake Erie, some great public and private golf courses, health clubs, walking trails, fishing and more.
From January 1, 2016 to August 18, 2016, 167 houses sold in the Byron neighbourhood for an average $386,753 which was 99.7% of the asking price. However, 26 houses did not sell in Byron and are either off the market or were re-listed. Again, price and condition dictates if a home sells and how it is marketed.
At present, there are 33 houses in Byron for sale, and 9 of them have been for sale for over 60 days, again price or marketing? (I put a question mark because I know why, does the home owner know why? Buyers sure know why!)
