$ 6.2 million homes near Vero Beach, Manhattan, and Toronto

As with its neighbor in the south, further growth is expected for the Canadian real estate market in 2021, especially in the luxury sector. In Toronto, a burgeoning global hub, residential real estate sales of $ 5 million or more grew more than 8% year-over-year, while sales of $ 2 million or more rose approximately 10%. In March, the average home price was nearly $ 1.1 million, according to the Toronto Regional Real Estate Board.

In this look at the world’s most beautiful homes, this week I compared properties in Toronto to properties of similar prices near Vero Beach, Florida, and New York City. From a contemporary residence in the heart of the West Village to a bespoke home on exclusive Old Colony Road, here’s a closer look at approximately $ 6.2 million purchases in Hutchinson Island, Manhattan, and Toronto.
