A bunch of real estate agents went crazy this morning over who had gotten there first to purchase units in Toronto's X2 condo development. The Toronto Star reports that some agents lined up more than a week ago for a shot at the condos, but that the developer let some who had arrived as recently as last night go first, provoking a riot from those who suddenly realized they'd missed a week of their lives. Stories like this (quoth one broker: "it's our job with a hot market nowadays...you have to line up for condos like this") set our hoaxdar a-whirring, but if it's true, well. Welcome back, 2006! We've missed you. [Toronto Star]
