JUST SOLD: Palace Place, Suite 1410 for the ALL-TIME RECORD PRICE of $457,000!

I have written to proudly announce that I have set yet another all-time record price at Palace Place by having just sold Suite 1410 for $457,000 by having represented the seller.

This is a fantastic accomplishment for the 10 suites at Palace Place. This record price represents a significant jump from other realtors’ sale prices of between $400,000 and $430,000.

Even at this new record price, the “10” suites still represent incredible value, as do all suites at Palace Place. Where else in the city of Toronto can you get a 1,388 square foot suite for $330 per square foot? When local window-popping shoebox condominiums sell for over $700 per square foot now, you have no choice but to scratch your head. Never mind the fact that such value for a suite exists in the most prestigious, luxurious, and best managed waterfront condominium residence in Canada!

In the condo world, newer is most definitely not better, and, in fact, they just simply do not build condominiums like they had used to. Palace Place had been built like a rock, and Palace Place features many advanced design features and qualities that are simply not found in construction today. For more details on such features, buy my book, “Palace Place”, at the URL that has been noted below.

This accomplishment clearly demonstrates the value of a realtor who knows his product, has key connections, and can walk his talk.

JUST SOLD: Palace Place, Suite 3504 for the RECORD PRICE of $335,000!

I have written to proudly announce that I have set yet another record price at Palace Place by having just sold Suite 3504 for $335,000 by having represented the seller.

There is a lot of doom and gloom in the market today. People fail to realize that this happens every year at this time and disappears come November. However, I have begun to develop a strong concern for first-time buyers in the 1-bedroom, under 1,000 square feet condominium market.

Ever since the mortgage rule changes this past June, these buyers have slowed down considerably. Unfortunately, the supply has only continued to pour onto the market.

We now have a case where these buyers have a lot to choose from, but, regrettably, do not have the experience or a proper adviser to give them proper advice. As a result, I am finding people comparing buildings like Palace Place to shoebox condominiums like those found at Windermere Avenue and The Queensway. Simply put, they are effectively comparing a Mercedes-Benz to a Fiat. You just do not find this kind of mistake in the car world. Why is it happening in the condo world? 

ANSWER: Buyers are not educating themselves beyond the floor plan and the “dream” that the builder is selling. Because they are not educating themselves, we must do it.

If you are a Palace Place 04, 07, or 12 owner, you need a realtor that can educate buyers on this fundamental difference, even if the buyer is represented by another realtor. It takes a heck of a lot of work, but it needs to be done. Otherwise, you are just throwing money out the window, as these buyers throw their money at new builders and their unfounded marketing hype.

An excerpt has been noted below.

Palace Place had experienced a strong period from August 1, 2012 to September 23, 2012, as total sales had decreased marginally from 6 sales in 2011 to 5 sales in 2012.  Prices had increased significantly during this time. In fact, four of these five sales had been sold by me.

• I had sold Suite 2208 for the all-time record price of $547,000, or $447 per square foot, in only 1-week, which had represented $149,500 over the last 08 sale price.

• I had sold Suite 3705 for the all-time record price of $617,000 in only 2-weeks, which had been $7,000 over my most recent 05 record price of $610,000.

• I had sold Suite 1410 for the all-time record price of $457,000.

• I had sold Suite 3504 for $335,000.

JUST SOLD: Palace Place, Suite 3705 for the ALL-TIME RECORD PRICE of $617,000!

I have written to proudly announce that I have set yet another record price at Palace Place by having just sold Suite 3705 for $617,000 in only 2-weeks by having represented the seller.

This is a fantastic accomplishment for the 05 suites at Palace Place. In fact, this suite had been previously listed with another realtor at the lower price of $599,000 for 141 days without any offers and minimal activity.

This accomplishment clearly demonstrates the value of a realtor who knows his product, has key connections, and can walk his talk.

JUST SOLD: Palace Place, Suite 2208 for the ALL-TIME RECORD PRICE of $547,000!

I have written to proudly announce that I have set yet another record price at Palace Place by having just sold Suite 2208 for $547,000, or $447 per square foot, in only 1-week by having represented both buyer and seller.

This sale price represents $149,500 above the most recent 08 sale!

This is a fantastic accomplishment for the 08 suites at Palace Place, which have long been the underdog of the building. Buyers want space, and, most importantly, buyers want quality. New construction fails to deliver these two key requirements. The 08 suites offer a magnificent floor plan that you cannot find in new buildings today!

Suite 2208 had been listed with another brokerage for months as a “mere posting” on the MLS system without so much as a showing. This accomplishment clearly demonstrates the value of a realtor who knows his product, has key connections, and can walk his talk.
