BUYERS SEEK GOOD LIFE
In four major markets in Canada — Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Montreal — luxury attached homes saw a significant increase in units sold in the first half of 2013 compared to the previous six months, says Sotheby’s International Realty Canada.
A healthy number of these sales went for above list price in the first half of 2013, it says in its latest Top Tier Real Estate Report.
The $1 million to $2 million range saw almost all of the sales activity for luxury attached homes in the four centres. In this range in the first half of 2013, 15 per cent sold above list price in Calgary; 9.8 per cent in Vancouver; 27 per cent in Toronto; and 6.35 per cent in Montreal.
