Comparable Analysis

  • 60 Bond Street sold for $485,000 in May 2024 with both units being tenanted at the time of sale. This detached 2-storey duplex consists of 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It has a footprint of 1957 sqft and sits on a larger 50ft x 83ft lot. Cosmetically the comparable property is partially updated as the upper unit was recently renovated in 2019. The comparable has 1 less bedroom, 1 less bathroom, no basement den, no garage, and lacks a finished basement. The comparable also has one less unit. After making some adjustments, we believe the subject property would sell for around $500,000, in “as is” condition.
  • 54 Portland Street sold for $745,000 in January 2024. This detached 2-storey triplex consists of 7 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, and a 1 car detached garage. All three units where rented at the time of sale. It has a footprint of 2065 sqft and sits on a larger 57ft x 120ft lot. The comparable property is mostly dated throughout but in much better condition than the subject property and has a brick exterior. The comparable has two more beds and one more bath than the subject property, however, the subject property does have a finished basement. After adjustments, we believe that the subject property would sell for a price of around $500,000 in “as-is” condition on the MLS.
  • 306 Dundas Street North sold for $615,000 in February 2024 after only 11 days on the market! This 2-storey brick legal duplex consists of 3+1 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a 1 car detached garage. It has a footprint of 1122 sqft, and sits on a similar 34ft x 100ft lot. The comparable property is mostly updated throughout but still not a true ARV. Unlike the subject property, the comparable has one less unit, 2 less bedrooms, 1 less bathroom, and no den. The comparable is however a brick home which demands a premium over the siding of the subject property. At the time of sale the comparable was fully rented. After adjustments, and after a full cosmetic renovation, we believe that the subject property would sell for a price around $680,000.
