Agent Dino Capocci moderated the bidding for two suites near Yonge and Eglinton on consecutive days in early April. This one-bedroom-plus-den unit in the Movada building – located near Eglinton Park – sold to a bidder who trumped seven others by adding $100,888 to the $475,000 asking price.
“Two Edith is not a big turnover building; maybe three or four [units are listed] a year,” Mr. Capocci said.
“[This unit] was priced a little low – I saw a recent sale around $510,000 – but there is definitely a big demand for smaller units in the Yonge and Eglinton area.”
What they got
In a seven-storey building with street-level shops and just 58 suites above, this south-facing residence has 619 square feet of living space inside, with about a 40 square foot balcony off the bedroom and living room.
Five appliances and a locker round out the unit’s assets. Utility costs are covered by monthly fees of $612, which also funds the upkeep of fitness and party rooms.
The agent’s take
“It’s a one-bedroom-plus-den [unit], but the den is a really good size, so a few people made note they could use it as a second bedroom,” Mr. Capocci said.
“And it’s as cute as a button. The seller replaced the carpeting with real hardwood and repainted the whole unit, so it showed really well.”
