In one of three relatively new high-rise buildings across from the Mount Joy GO transit station, this one-bedroom unit came on the market just after a similar unit was sold, which gave it a field clear of competition.
“We weren’t expecting crazy action,” said agent Ira Jelinek. But with market supply tight, they were confident their property would get noticed. Within a week they got had 17 showings and received two purchase offers.
What they got
This 548-square-foot unit has a sleek, modern aesthetic and has a kitchen outfitted with granite countertops and ceramic backsplashes. Glass doors off the bedroom and living room open to the balcony.
The unit comes with a storage locker and parking. Monthly fees are $420.
The agent’s take
“It was on one of the highest floors, so it had incredible views,” Mr. Jelinek said.
“You can see for miles over low-rise [homes].”
Residents has use of an on-site gym and rooftop terrace. The Markham Museum, shops and restaurants are just down the road. “It’s walking distance to basically anything you need,” Mr. Jelinek said.
