When a tenant who had lived in the condo for 11 years decided to move out, “our clients saw an opportunity to sell,” listing agent Daniel Bloch says.
And people were ready to buy.

“The building did not allow for open houses, but buyers came through showings in droves,” Bloch says. “We listed at $899,900 and received three offers in the first week to market and sold for $910,000.”

First-time buyers, downsizers, investors or people seeking a pied-à-terre in the city all want properties in this range, Bloch says.

Suite 3115 is “one of the nicest condos available in the area,” with an enchanting view and a great layout, he says. “It’s well designed, with two large bedrooms and a split plan that’s ideal for roommates or a couple with a baby.

“We went to market in January, ahead of the spring market, to capture the interest of buyers. It sold much more quickly than the average sale in the area. At the time we listed, there were several other similar condos, but they were priced too high or didn’t present well in photographs.”

The suite has a balcony and floor-to-ceiling windows oering lake and sunset views. The 31st-floor corner unit, which has 938 square feet of living space, has new, wideplank laminate flooring, an open-concept den and is freshly painted. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and granite countertops.

Canine family members will enjoy its proximity to a dog park, the Harbourfront and waterfront trails for long walks. Union station and the Financial and Entertainment districts are also nearby.
