CO-OP AGENT: Ira Jelinek, Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd.
The Action: A young professional asked agent Ira Jelinek to direct her towards downtown studios or one-bedroom suites with parking worth investing in. The only place she picked to tour – and ultimately made an offer on – was this bachelor pad at Bliss in Liberty Village.
What They Got: On the first floor of a four-year-old high-rise complex is this modern suite with 12.5-foot ceilings, laminate floors and south-facing windows illuminating an open space with a balcony door, built-in wall unit and U-shaped kitchen with stainless steel appliances.
Also part of the package is one bathroom, a storage locker and parking, plus $258 monthly fees for the cost of water and heating, concierge and recreational facilities.
The Agent's Take: "It's a better quality building than some other ones," Mr. Jelinek says. "There are two buildings connected that share amenities – like a pool and gym – so the maintenance fees are much lower."
The compact suite itself also had all the basics. "Even though it's small, like all bachelors are, it had really high ceilings that helped make it look larger," Mr. Jelinek adds.
