Listing agent: Elli Davis, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd.

The action

According to agent, Elli Davis, there is often a lengthy period between vacancies of large units at the Residences of Avoca Vale abutting David A. Balfour Park. So as soon as this two-bedroom corner suite overlooking the 50-acre park was listed in January, one buyer gave the seller a large financial incentive to hand over ownership.

“Supply is very limited of larger units with excellent views,” Ms. Davis said. “Even if someone was looking in other buildings as well, they don’t come up that often.”

What they got

This 1,645-square-foot suite is positioned in the south east corner of a 21-year-old high-rise, so there are picture windows in each room, including the breakfast area in the kitchen. A balcony is also situated off a living room with hardwood floors and a gas fireplace.

Additional luxuries range from three bathrooms and ensuite laundry machines to a locker and parking spot downstairs.

Monthly fees of $1,474 pay for utilities, cable costs and 24-hour concierge, as well as maintenance of a courtyard, fitness and recreation amenities.

The agent’s take

"It’s a very in desirable building because it’s at Yonge and St. Clair, but this [unit] in particular has unobstructed, south-east views of the city and ravine,” Ms. Davis said.
