Montreal luxury penthouse is the highest-priced condo ever sold in Quebec

·2 min read

A luxury Montreal penthouse in the swanky Ritz-Carlton Residences listed for $12,900,000 has sold — making it the highest-priced condo ever sold in Quebec.

Like other major Canadian cities, Montreal’s real estate market has been red-hot despite the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, but this place takes high-priced housing to a whole new level.

The listing drew a lot of attention from potential wealthy owners, but it was bought by an American.

“The sale of this only reinforces Montreal’s position as a desirable destination within the global real estate market. It also reflects the underlying resilience of our city’s luxury condominium market, and the fact that demand for prestigious brands and properties will always be enduring,” said Liza Kaufman, listing agent with the Kaufman Group of Sotheby’s International Realty Quebec, who represented both the seller and the buyer in the transaction.

Yes it’s technically a condo, but it’s actually twice as big as most four bedroom family homes.
