Attention number hitters in Toronto, Canada.

A two-car garage in an upscale Toronto neighbourhood -- no house, just the garage -- has sold for $135,000........
What they got was a 25-by-55-foot lot with a garage that can fit two cars. It is attached to several other garages.

Interesting tale - I'll have to pass it along to my son. He's always complaining about the cost of houses where he lives on Maui.

Depending on where it was in Toronto, I am not that suprised. Parking is a real premium in parts of the city. My husband is from there and we travel there quite often. Prices are really high depending on where you live.

Maybe like getting a parking space in New York City?

Sounds high for the market they describe but if a neighbor needed it to expand...

I recently did a construction loan in the suburbs where the owner paid $2,300,000 for the 7,500 sq ft level lot which is over $300/sq ft (donated the decent 2,000 sq ft home to the fire department for practice and got a tax deduction). I had good land sales support via abstraction for well over $2,000,000. $135,000 for a 1,000+ sq ft strip of land ($135 per sq ft) would be a bargin in that market with no consideration for the garage.

Whenever you do a high-rise condo and you have to adjust for parking's best to ask the parking valet...They know what every parking space sold for in the underground garage. abstraction at its finest...

Highest I've come across is $25,000.

My question is regarding parking space/garage slot sales in urban uptown areas.

Does the price paid for these generally represent the cap rate?

In other words is this value based on income?
