    Huge mansion like that and only a 3 car garage. Pfft I'll pass. With our money, I expected more.

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    It's a weird property hemmed in on all sides. But of you want somewhere less then five minutes walk to downtown, it's pretty cool.

    I lol'd at the bed weirdly pushed up against the window and the ~50" TV in the dedicated Home Theater room.

    Aside from that....pretty amazing house in an amazing location.

    I think that's a really generous over-under bar...

    2004 build with dated finishings
    No architectural merit
    Relatively small property
    Relatively small principle rooms

    Last sold in 2015 for $9mm (thanks, Honestdoor ) - I don't think anyone would claim the market in Calgary has improved since then and the high end / $4mm+ market is especially dead for resale homes. At that price point, buyers will be extremely picky and I just can't see anyone tripping over themselves for that house, even with that view.

    I'd be curious to hear any thoughts from the resident realtors, or what they think it'll go for.

    Well that's shitty, what if someone wants to bid less than that - considering there's no reserve. lol.

    When is the action ending, i see it starts Nov 12th, is it just a 1 day thing?

    Anyone want to set a number for a bet, and I take over or under for a small bet?

    The 100k bid deposit is just that, a deposit no?
    Whatever you do at the auction, even if you lose, you get that deposit back I thought.

    It would be funny if this house went under 3 mill.

    I'm sure there's plenty of realtors with deep pockets :cough cough: Jordan who will be watching closely in case something like that happens and bid the price up eventually.

    Bidding opens Nov. 12 and the home will sell to the highest bidder on Nov. 15.

    My best guess is a $5.8M sale price. We will see!!
