7 Rosedale Road toronto

This home in Toronto just sold for a ridiculous amount over asking

A Toronto home selling for over asking is nothing new, with the housing market the way it is, it's more shocking when something like that doesn't happen.

That being said, a home selling for $2.1 million over asking, nearly 50 per cent more than its initial asking price is a whole new level of chaos for the wacky funhouse ride that is the Toronto real estate market.

It wasn't long before the house was off the market, bought for a staggering $6.6 million, 46.66 per cent higher than expected.
