Toronto home sale breaks neighborhood price record by over $200,000

A home sold in Toronto’s Upper Bloor West Village earlier this month set a new record price for the neighborhood.

Located at 873 Windermere Avenue near Dundas Street West and Runnymede Road, the home went on sale for $1,999,000 on May 4. Three days and three bully bids later, it sold for $2,500,000.

Not only was the asking price $501,000 higher than the asking price, but it also set a new record for the neighborhood of over $200,000.

“It definitely exceeded our expectations,” said listing agent Kathy Essery of Sage Real Estate. “Houses like this don’t show up very often in this neighborhood.”

Massive windows flood the east-facing home with natural light at all hours of the day — a “huge selling factor,” Essery said.

“It really is an amazing house,” she told Daily Hive. “Inside and outside.”
