350K to buy a condo in Toronto
Monday Jan 28th, 2019Share
Recently, I've been working with a client who is looking to purchase a condo with two bedrooms at around CAD350K. As to date, Dec 2018, the average market price for condos in Toronto is CAD$594,381, it is a challenge to find a condo at such a price.
With my client's preferences, we identified several communities in both Scarborough and Etobicoke. The first condo we viewed is located in L'Amoreaux community. Though the building is around 40 years old, the apartment is spacious; over 1000sqf with an ideal layout. My client fell in love immediately after viewing the property. Unfortunately, the condo was already sold in condition within 3 days. The second property we viewed is located in Brookhaven-Amesbury community. The building's exterior condition is dull but on the inside is acceptable. My client loved it. But with further research, we concluded the community may not be as safe.

We also viewed condo around other areas but could not find anything that met my client's expectation. The journey will continue and I hope that I can help my client find her first home in Canada soon.
