A house neither posh nor detached sold for almost $1M today

What did I tell you ? Anything non-condo, non-town and non-semi that goes for less than $1M in Toronto must be in a ghetto.

This is true so far … What surprises me is even this “ghetto-ish” thing is selling for almost $1M !

Toronto has come a long way.

17 Givins Street – TRINITY-BELLWOODS

It was a flip that had been initially listed in May for $699,000 only to sell closer to $600,000.
There was a lot of work done to the house and they did a really good job.  Something about the kitchen/bathroom/laundry layout was sitting right with me and a few readers agreed.  One reader suggested a galley kitchen which might not have been a bad idea.  My issue was more with the bathroom.  Was it really necessary?  I would have preferred a sitting area at the back of the house.
But this was a good flip.  One bedroom wasn’t super large, but it works for a young family.
It was listed at $849,000.
It seemed high considering the house across the street at 18 Givins sold for $716,000 a year ago, but that house was a corner lot and there was basically no backyard.  It was either a parking spot or a tiny ‘yard’.
This house had a good sized deck and yard plus a garage, not to mention a finished basement apartment.
I thought it would sell closer to $889,000 (if the windows were new).
It just sold … for $942,500!
