Amazing Home Sales, Can You Do Better?

When a “For Sales” sign pop up in your neighbourhhood, you’d wonder what they are asking for and what features does the home have. And when the “Sold” stickers go on later, you’d wonder how much it was sold for, and why. Below are a few interesting sales around the Toronto area.

Asking Price: 549,000

Sold Price: 596,007

Taxes: 2,935 (2014)

Days on Market: 7

Reason: this is a 62-year-old detached ½ storey residence sitting on a 50x106ft lot. The building was surrounded by greenery giving it a very private country-like space while still in the city.
