Welcome to the MASH where we gossip about current real estate listings.


99 Whitehall Avenue - ROSEDALE

99 Whitehall Avenue - ROSEDALE

In January 2012, I posted this 4+1 bedroom, 2 bathroom house on a 40 x 125 foot lot at 99 Whitehall Avenue in Rosedale

It was a house that had sold a year earlier for $1,500,000...

Which, for the house, at that time, was overpriced so it was clearly going to be a rebuild or a teardown.

A year later, it was back on the market with plans by Rosewood Custom Homes and a sketch of the proposed house...

The plan was for it to be 3,400 square feet with 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms.  The asking price was $3,095,000...

Which, 4 years ago, was pretty high.

It never sold and it was back on the market a year ago with a new sketch of the house...

The listing said this house was located on a...

Quiet Child-Friendly Street

But in fact, this is located on a very busy street and only one house in from a very busy corner.

The new asking price was $3,695,000.  

Three days after I posted the new listing and increase, I posted the sale of a house around the corner at 175 Douglas Drive...

It was a duplex that was probably going to be totally renovated.  It was listed somewhere around $2,100,000 and I think sold somewhere close to that.

Even with a new house on this lot, it wasn't in as good a location and was not going to sell for $3.7 million.

It didn't and the house now has 2 listings.  One for the new build for the same price of $3,695,000...

And now, it is also being listed as is...

* If You Would Prefer To Move-In And Wait A Few Years Before You Start Your Build, The Existing 4 Bedroom Home Has Been Beautifully Renovated Including Lowered Basement*

For $2,550,000.

This is going to take a while.
