I've been siting on this blog idea for a long time. I wrote a bunch of it during the initial COVID-19 slowdown in activity, but then things ramped way up and I never got to finishing it. The idea for this post comes from seeing several things in my time as a realtor that are either frustrating or seem like they could be improved - or both. The ideas vary in importance and potential impact, but since I'm The King I'm going to share whichever ones I please and in whatever order! And... [read more]

Sunday Mar 7th, 2021

Share

In the blog last month, I was noting how December condo volumes all of a sudden spiked up and I investigated whether investors were back. (Spoiler: I thought they were.)

I was curious to see what the most expensive house that sold in Toronto on the MLS was last year, as well as the least expensive. Same for condos. So I looked them up. Then I went down a bit of a curiosity rabbit hole and at the end I figured if I was curious, you might be too, so I'm sharing them on this blog post.
