Condo Market Feels Heat as House Prices Soar

"Bidding wars, bully offers trickling down to condos as house hunters look for alternatives.

Just this month, the frenzy reached a new fever pitch in Riverdale — probably the hottest area of the city right now — as a semi and a detached house on Victor Ave., one listed for $949,900 and the other for almost $1.2 million, each sold for $300,000 over asking price.

Some of that frenzy of fear seems to be spilling over into the condo market as house hunters search for the next best alternative."
