Sold! Toronto home goes for $370K over asking

The Toronto real estate market never ceases to baffle me. One week they’re saying the housing market is slumping and the next a random house sells for $1,165,000 in six days.

233 castlefield ave torontoThis Yonge and Eglinton house got a crazy amount of attention in the short time it was listed. According to the realtor, it racked up over 2,100 hits on the MLS listing, 41 outside broker showings, 76 groups of people through the weekend open houses and five registered offers.

233 castlefield avenue torontoWhile it’s not a bad house, I don’t think it deserved this amount of attention. The living room seems spacious enough and has some nice large windows letting in some natural light.

233 castlefield ave torontoWhy it sold for what it did?

I honestly have no idea why this house sold for $1.17 million. Maybe for the location? I mean it certainly wasn’t for a stunning renovation job. According to the realtor, the only change made to the home was a conversion from hot water oil heat to a natural gas boiler.

233 castlefield ave toronto Was it worth it?

I personally don’t think so. Even if you do a ton of renovations the house is average at best. But maybe I’m missing something.233 castlefield avenue toronto
