An unfortunate picture?

8 St. Claire, OG

The broker open house is tomorrow, so maybe I’m missing something, but this is the worst looking $3.5 million house I’ve seen in my life.

Yeah, that’s the ticket!

160 John Street

This place, owned by a famous dress designer, started at $39.5 million but didn’t sell, so it was increased to $41 million. It still wouldn ‘t move – go figure – so the owner fired his broker, hired a new one and raised the price to $45 million. If that doesn’t work, watch out: this is gonna cost you $100 million next year. “What, ya think I’m stupid or something?”

Well this had to happen

546 North Street

546 North Street, 5.5 acres in the 2-acre zone, was chopped from $7.995 million in 2008  to just $3.495 last month and is now under contract. My own clients didn’t want ” a project”. Someone else saw a deal.
