The building is roughly 15 years old.

The action: During the last few months of 2017, the seller of this two-bedroom suite at Thornwood rejected a few bids in hopes of getting one around $1-million. Relisted during the spring market with another agent and a lower asking price under $860,0000, there were four offers within a few days in April.

“They tried to sell it with ‘top-down’ pricing and priced it above $1-million and there weren’t any comps,” agent Sandra Pate said. “The market has been more buoyant this spring.”

The south-facing unit boasts good views of downtown.

What they got: In the south tower of a roughly 15-year-old complex, just east of the Summerhill LCBO, is this south-facing unit with a balcony off an open principal room and large windows in the master bedroom.

For washing up, there are two full bathrooms and laundry facilities. A locker and parking come with the unit.

Each month, $687 pays for water and heating, as well as 24-hour concierge, a car-wash station, fitness and games rooms.

The agent’s take: “It’s really hard to get a view downtown, particularly in these two buildings … but this unit has due south views, so it’s not going to be obstructed and it was high enough it was above the tennis club’s roofing,” Ms. Pate said.

“It was a split two-bedroom plan, so it was a little compact at 820 square feet, but it was a really good unit for a starter [home] or a midtown downsizer.”
