Lawson neighborhood's sales stayed strong year-over-year from 2015 to 2016 to 2017 with an increase in both the number of homes sold each of those years and the average selling price for homes. In 2016 and 2017 about 20% of total sales were new construction homes, which helped pull up average sold prices. The average selling price as a per cent of listing price has also gradually increased year-over-year. In 2017 sold prices ranged from a low of $249,900 to a high of $725,000.
It's worth pointing out that as of the start of 2018 Mattamy had nine homes under construction with an average list price of just under $727,000. Meantime, Lennar Homes have five homes under construction as the year started with an average list price of $480,000 (up year-over-year). This new construction will continue to push average sold prices in Lawson upwards.
