Sale of the Week: The condo that shows what $1 million gets you on the Ossington strip
Listed At: $959,300
Sold For: $959,300
An 800-square-foot condo on the Ossington strip.
The six-floor mid-rise building was controversial in 2012, when its developer first proposed building it on the site of a used car lot and auto repair shop.

The buyer is a first-time homebuyer in his late 20s. He’s moving to the city from Oakville.
The sellers decided not to artificially underprice the unit—a practice their agents believe causes confusion among potential buyers. After 35 showings over eight days, there was just one offer, for full asking price.
