Yorkville Luxury Condo Sales
5 luxury condo suites sold above $2.2M to $4.5M in the 1st quarter of 2014 which was a 58% decrease from the previous quarter. However the 4th quarter of 2013 was a record setting quarter with 12 condos selling over $2.2M which was at least double the number of units sold in every other quarter of 2013.
The decline in the number of luxury suite sales this quarter can be accounted for by the particularly harsh long winter in Toronto coupled with the fact that buyers of luxury condos are not actively looking at this time of the year as they tend to spend the winter months in warmer climates.
