LISTING AGENT Ira Jelinek, Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd.
The Action: Victoria Village has so few urban townhouses, this two-bedroom unit had the sole attention of potential buyers late this summer. While the sellers were still braced for a month of marketing, they only had to endure about a dozen showings over two weeks before an offer was registered.
What They Got: In a decade-old complex with one and two-storey units stacked on top of one another, this lower-level unit has a one-storey plan, entrance off a front patio and parking in a garage maintained by monthly dues of $369.
- The layout is modern with an open living and dining area and U-shaped kitchen with upgraded appliances, as well as two bedrooms, one bathroom and laundry machines.
The Agent's Take: "Right in the immediate vicinity, there are one or two older condo buildings and these stacked townhouses, so there's not much competition," says agent Ira Jelinek.
"You get about 800 square feet for $275,000, which is pretty good value."
Plus, the complex is steps from shops, grocers and banks at Golden Mile and Eglinton Square malls, as well as several transit routes. "Because it's on Eglinton, you're close to everything – from the DVP and a shopping mall across the street – and also you have the LRT that will be coming," Mr. Jelinek notes. "So it's a good location."
