117 Glen Road

Sold! Rosedale mansion goes for $2.6 million under asking

Here's an interesting house sale if you're into tracking luxury properties. Back in 2012 it was a relatively tired property that sold for just over $3 million before eventually getting a massive reno/addition and re-entering the market at $11.6 million.

That didn't do it either, so the price was dropped to $9,995,000 in March. Even in Toronto's wacky real estate market, it still took another $1 million drop.

117 Glen Road TorontoI'm not sure there's a lot to glean from this sale in terms of the market in general. During a time when it became increasingly popular to under-list properties, this one was just too high. But, let's be honest, there are rarely bidding wars on $10 million properties. They take time to sell.

117 Glen Road TorontoWhy it sold for what it did

Despite the addition, this is really a mini-mansion rather than a full-blown estate. You'd never call it small, but when you look at other properties that have sold for $10+ million, this one wasn't quite in the same league.

117 Glen Road TorontoWas it worth it?

Someone with more money should probably answer this question, but given the multiple price drops and the period it was available for sale, let's say that the final price was appropriate.
