How Important Is The View?

How Important Is The View? Photo With so many new condo buildings popping up, great views are getting much harder to come by. Heck, even decent views are getting harder to come by.

So, if you're selling your condo and it's got an exceptional view - shout it from the rooftops!

I recently had a condo listing in the Yorkville/Bloor area.

The last comparable sale in the building was listed and then re-listed twice before finally selling. It was on the market for a total of 158 days.

Our's sold in just 2 days. And for 103% of the list price.

Why the difference?

While I'd like to think it all came down to my exceptional skill as a realtor, I have to admit there was another factor at play as well: Our unit had an incredible view and the other one didn't.

The other unit was on a much lower floor and stared directly into the brick wall of the building next door.

Our unit was located all the way up in the 35th floor and had a an unobstructed view.

It was quite something, actually. You faced east and could see over the Rosedale Valley and downtown all the way to Lake Ontario.

Needless to say, playing this up in the marketing of the property was a no-brainer.

The photos, the virtual tour, the feature sheets & the online advertising all highlighted the incredible view.

And it served us well.

We ended up setting a record price for that layout in the building.
