Justice Porn & The Greedy Condo Owner

My friend and her boyfriend are looking for a condo in the city.

If you’re not from Toronto, or you are and you’ve just been living under a rock these past few years, allow me to lay out the condo situation in Toronto.

Condos. Are. Fucking. Expensive. In. Toronto.

That was really painful. But I said it.

There are condos EVERYWHERE. They’re building them EVERYWHERE. I will not be surprised if we have a condo “ghetto” in 10 years or so, because our generation (baby boom echo/generation y) will be buying houses and moving the fuck out of our overpriced, undersized, glass boxes.

For the record, I don’t live in a condo. It’s too expensive. I rent. And I have a roommate.

Anyways…

My friend and her SO have monies to spend and they want to spend it on a condo! So they looked for a couple of months and finally found *their* unit. It was just right.

If I tell you how much the unit was selling for, you’ll faint and/or think my friend and her boyfriend are millionaires. They really aren’t. But these are the prices we have to cope with in our glorious city.

They made an offer. They offered $25,000 less than asking price. The sellers, who are both real estate agents by the way, rejected it. They insisted on their (overpriced) original selling price.

My friend and her boyfriend dropped their conditions and came up a couple thousand. The sellers rejected it. The sellers came down $2,000 from their original overpriced selling price.

My friend and her boyfriend ignored the counter-offer and walked away. The seller called them 4 times asking where their counter-offer was. They never returned her calls.

Today, my friend and her boyfriend found out that the condos was sold…for $25,000 less than what they offered! That’s $50,000 less than what it was originally selling for! The sellers lost $25,000 by being greedy assholes!

Karma, greedy bitches, karma.
