Results of Firehouse Auction?

The unit I’ve been lusting after at the Firehouse went to auction yesterday. Sadly I didn’t know about this in advance. But am now curious what it sold for? Rumor has it sold for $735k even though it was last listed on the MLS for $450k.

About Matt Goyer

I love condos, lofts, floating homes, new construction and mid-century moderns so much so that since starting this blog in 2006 I've written over 2,000 blog posts about them!

For years I resisted becoming a real estate agent preferring to be a marketing executive at Redfin but after leaving Redfin (after seven years!) I caved in the spring of 2014 and became a broker. So if you need help finding that "Urbnlivn-style" place or selling your home email me at, I'd be happy to help you.

Prior to Urbnlivn and Redfin, I worked at Microsoft after graduating from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Mathematics with a major in computer science.

    If that rumor turns out to be true, I will feel a whole lot better about my decision not to get involved in the auction.. – Can’t be right though, surely, – I looked at the place when it was listed at $425k. I was about to make an offer, when I was told that it was no longer on the market and was going to auction.

    I would hope that the auction bidders at least took the time to look at the price history before bidding. A 70% price increase just due to the auction’s ability to create an artificial sellers market would be an awesome feat! It’ll be fun to wait and see.
