Lakeview condos are back: Two bedroom condo sales up 45%, three or more up 16%

We've had several clients buying Lakeview condos and we've sold some pretty cool listings this year as well.  The competition is way up resulting in multiple offers in most of our transactions.  We've also seen higher quality homes coming to market than over the past few years.

 One bedroom condo sales
Lakeview is home to many lakefront high-rise buildings that house one bedroom condos.  Smaller mid-rise and converted vintage buildings also feature one bedroom homes making Lakeview a good place to find lower priced, smaller apartments in great locations.
