THE CRAZY WORLD OF REAL ESTATE AND THE CRAZY PEOPLE WHO OVERBID

THE CRAZY WORLD OF REAL ESTATE AND THE CRAZY PEOPLE WHO OVERBID

 

Recently a property was listed in the Commercial Drive area at 1735 E 3rd list price was $1,588,000.

This property had 4 bedrooms upstairs and a 2 bedroom legal suite.

This house was completely re built in 2012 to enhance the character, update plumbing,

electrical and replace windows.

The property sold for $1,540,000.

Here where the Crazy part of the story begins….

1737 E 2nd was listed in the Commercial Drive area for $1,499,000. This home had

1 bedroom upstairs 1bedroom on the main floor and two bedroom basement suite.

This also was a remodelled Character home.

There were 4 offers and the sale price was $1,718,000. ( No that is not a typo)

I am not sure who the Buyers were, but I can tell you that no bank would appraise the property

at this value, which means the buyers have very deep pockets and most probably are from the

“West side”.I don’t believe this is a sign of what houses will be worth this year in the

Grandview Commercial Drive area.I do believe that it will be a competitive market and if you need

some sound real estate advice, I am happy to answer your questions.
