The Action: At Queen's Harbour, units popped up one after another with little overlap in April. So this ground-floor corner suite without parking was able to grab the attention of 30 house hunters. Three of them brought forward offers to purchase.

"The building hasn't traditionally commanded the same money some of the other Queens Quay buildings have, but the location is amazing. You're right across the street from the boardwalk trails," agent Jenelle Cameron says.

"So, it was a nice reminder you can still get a pretty decent-sized condo for a good price downtown."

What They Got: At the bottom corner of a 17-year-old high-rise, this 740-square-foot suite has a patio off the open principal rooms.

Finishes include hardwood floors in the bedroom and slate in the kitchen and solarium.

Ensuite laundry facilities and a storage locker are included. Monthly fees of $522 goes toward utilities and upkeep of fitness and recreation rooms.

The Agent's Take: "It showed really well because it was a ground floor unit and it was really bright," Ms. Cameron notes. "It had a terrace instead of a balcony and the main-floor units have high windows."

Bob and Roz Holden are part of a growing number of Canadians who are opting for a condo lifestyle over a house in the suburbs, according to Wednesday’s census figures.
