You know the phrase ‘They’re selling like hotcakes’? Ever heard it? It’s always puzzled me. First of all, what ARE hotcakes? (Is that a stupid question?) Second of all, what is it about them that make them sell so quick? Anyways, the reason I ask is because I found out recently that Annex Loft Houses [map], having only been on the market for 3 months, have already sold more than 85% of their units. They are the proverbial hotcakes of the Toronto condominium marketplace!
So it got me thinking some more, which is usually a bad thing as it leads to hours and hours of staring into space and having several internal monologues going at the same time about the most inane and random topics known to man. I got to thinking about what are the fastest selling things of all time, and with a bit of help from my friend Mr. Google, I share some of them with you here!
Fastest Selling Album: The Beatles – 1 (the previous record holders were N*Sync!)
Fastest Selling Book: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (That’s the 7th one in the series for all you non-readers!)
Fastest Selling Video Game: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
Fastest Selling Movie: Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince
Fastest Selling DVD: Mamma Mia (Wow! Just……….Wow!)
Fastest Selling Concert Tour: U2 – 360 Degrees
That’s a pretty illustrious list right there! What makes the hotcake-esque snapping up of the Annex Loft Houses units all the more remarkable is that BuzzBuzzHome was the main source of advertising for the development! Take THAT Harry Potter and your multi-million dollar advertising campagins!!!
Oh, and in case you were wondering, hotcakes are pancakes. Man do I feel stupid!
