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.) This month, I'm going to double down on that and look at some of the same things as January's 416 condo sales numbers were record-breaking.

Welcome to the 2nd Annual MLS Awards. Last year's list was one of my most popular blog posts of the year and was deemed juicy enough to be picked up by BlogTO. I started doing them because I was curious to see what the most expensive house that sold in Toronto on the MLS was, then that made me wonder what the least expensive was.
