With the housing market being as crazy at the moment; but this article caught my attention. The house was listed for $1.19 million and sold for $2.3 million. This house is in Toronto but when you look at it, I wouldn't pay $500,000 for it, never mind over $2 million. It looks better on the inside than on the outside. I wonder if the buyers are going to tear it down and build a mini mansion in it's place?
We were out and about on Saturday having a drive by looking at some houses that caught our eye on MLS. If you have bought and sold homes before, you like us know that the photos don't show everything. We drove by three and of the three only one was a possibility and then it was too gut; which at our age is too big of a job for us. Plus when I spoke to the real estate agent by telephone he was very abrupt, so that put me off. A good sales rep would have asked questions about what we are looking for etc. We are in no hurry to move so can take our time looking for the perfect home to retire too.
We are looking to move as we are fed up of paying condo fees that by this coming June will have increased by $120 since we moved here three years ago. For what we get for that money it would be better in our pocket!!
We also got rid of our guy who shoveled the driveway of snow. He confused the heck out of us, as we never knew when he was coming and most of the time we ended up doing it ourselves. Plus it won't kill either of us to do it. Mind you we got a blast of winter here on Sunday, so out came the shovels........
