LISTING AND CO-OP AGENT Elli Davis, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd.
The Action: Late last year, the Bellagio residence by the Rosedale Ravine had many units listed for sale, including this two-bedroom plus den corner suite. So it took a small price reduction and more than a dozen private tours before a visitor was compelled to negotiate a deal.
What They Got: In 2002, this over 1,100-square-foot suite was customized with granite floors in the U-shaped kitchen and hardwood floors everywhere else, from the den to an open living and dining area with an electric fireplace and a rounded balcony facing southeast.
The suite was also equipped with two four-piece bathrooms, including a master en suite, and stacked laundry machines, plus a locker and parking.
Monthly fees of $690 pay for utilities and care of guest suites, gym, pool and recreation room.
The Agent’s Take: “The Bellagio has great facilities – and they're actually redoing and updating all the facilities – and 24-hour security and visitor parking,” says agent Elli Davis. “It has easy access to the Bloor/Sherbourne subway and … Bloor Street shops.”
This unit also had everything buyers expected in the popular high-rise. “It has a nice ravine view and a balcony,” adds Ms. Davis. “The buyer was actually in the building who upgraded to this larger suite and I ended up selling theirs, which was smaller.”
