The sellers bought the unit brand new in 2012. Now, they’re expecting their first child. To avoid being priced out of the freehold market, they decided to hurry up and sell.
The new owners are first-time buyers. They’re taking possession in April.
On the first day of showings, there were six bully offers. The sellers accepted the highest of them, which was about $65,000 over asking. The selling agent says the sale price is the highest ever recorded in the building.
