If you've been following MY QUEST FOR A CONDO then you know I am trying to trade up and eventually get a condo in Toronto... via trading for it!
Oh but you're wrong!
A simple trip to thetorontorealestate.com and you can browse the interactive map halfway down the page.
Lets see... Lets select condo / other, list price between $25,000 and $50,00, condo apartment and see what comes up...
5 results! I have organized them below by maintenance costs.
11 Brunel Crt, 3109, Toronto
Rms: 1 Beds: 1 Washrm: 1
208 Queens Quay St, P320, Toronto (Oh but wait that is a parking space, not a condo.)
340 Dixon Rd, 1508, Toronto
Rms: 4 Beds: 1 Washrm: 1
Maint: $653 (WOW, THAT IS A LOT OF MAINTENANCE FOR A PLACE THAT CHEAP!)
4645 Jane St, 526, Toronto
Rms: 5 Beds: 2 Washrm: 1
320 Dixon Rd, 2313, Toronto
Rms: 5 Beds: 2 Washrm: 1
So yes, it is possibly to find really cheap condos in Toronto. 3 out of the 5 have some weird maintenance fees, which suggests to me there is something wrong with the buildings and that is why they keep dropping the price.
21 results with maintenance fees varying between $50 and $750. Pretty nifty.
Lets say I traded my way up during My Quest for a Condo until I get a something reasonably valuable... like a luxury car or a yacht. I should be able to trade that for a condo.
Or I could hold out and aim for something nicer around $150,000 or $250,000, which was my original goal when I started this quest. And if condo prices drop in the next year then people may be looking to get rid of their bad investment.
The point is that its doable. And I am just the man to get it done.
