SOLD - 99 Willcocks Street - HARBORD VILLAGE, TORONTO (13 Comments)
It was on the market for the first time in 57 years so it needed a lot of work but it had a LOT of potential.
It was listed at $1,595,000. I thought it would sell closer to $1.7. It sold for another $100,000 over that!
Last month, it was back on the market so it's a flip.
Don't get me wrong. It's a good house and they kept a lot of the original character like the moulding in the living room and dining room.
But they also covered the third floor in carpet and left the baseboards that are a bit of a mess...
The windows weren't updated. The floors are the original. I have no idea if anything has happened to the backyard. I'm not sure if it was stated anywhere, but I am seeing nothing about the wiring being updated. Or any insulation added. Or new plumbing.
Basically, it seems like a half a--ed job of something that could have been amazing.
That didn't stop this place from selling over ask.
It seems that this house was listed at $2,495,000. At some point, the price was changed to $2,625,000.
It sold at about 101% of that ask.
A $800,000 increase on a flip that probably cost about $180,000.
