    Looking for a 1 bedroom condo in Toronto

    just a heads up, wanted to ask if you read your buyer-agent agreement fully? reason i ask is because some agreements state you still owe the agent commission if you purchase a unit within a certain amount of months of your contract expiring. mine had something like that when i was looking...

    Post a good floorplan!

    That's why i bought it ;). Unfortunately,the only one available at the time was on a low floor (~3rd) but I figured the conveniance of being able to use the stairs and not have a long elevetor wait time was worth it.

    i think this one is quite efficient.

    Toronto | CityPlace: Canoe Landing Community Centre & Schools | 15.85m | 3s | City of Toronto | ZAS Architects

    It really does have to be a collaborative effort from everyone within the buildings. As already mentioned, we need to report anything and everything. Otherwise, we can't expect anything to be fixed. I'm not sure what percentage are renters but I feel pride of ownership does play a part. If...

    Toronto | CityPlace: Canoe Landing Community Centre & Schools | 15.85m | 3s | City of Toronto | ZAS Architects

    I'm a recent purchaser of a 5th floor west facing unit in N1 Cityplace. I knew something was going to be built in front of me but (based on plans) I knew it wasn't going to completely clear out my view. Also, the buildings should look fairly decent too. So it's a matter of exchanging one view...

    Toronto | CityPlace: Canoe Landing Community Centre & Schools | 15.85m | 3s | City of Toronto | ZAS Architects

    wondering what people think about N1 west facing units? I don't see it blocking that much of it. The building seems to look fairly nice anyway, so you change one view for another. btw, i have a west facing unit in N1 on a lower floor. I knew something was going to be built there but the...

    Buying New vs Resale

    simuls: One of the reasons I'm liking those townhouses is because they are very inexpensive. This is my first home so I consider it a stepping stone. I plan to save as much on the side for my next (ideal) one later on or, if not that, have enough disposable income to have a great time while...

    Buying New vs Resale

    I really like St. Lawrence area but can't seem to find something I like. Not much selection. I also like liberty village. I work out in Pickering and I was hoping to get something a little more that way but looks like I may have to add a few minutes to my commute. Regarding the Liberty...

    Buying New vs Resale

    If a find a unit I really like and it doesn't have parking I think I'd rather rent than pay for a spot. We had a parking spot seller lined up if I purchased a unit but they were asking ~$37k. When adding on the extra expenses, owning a parking spot is much more expensive compared to renting...

    Buying New vs Resale

    I assume to include parking and locker as well but it's hard to make comparisons without knowing if others' have included it as well. You're right, $10k for 25 floors higher is a deal. But if you're looking at it the other way... only $10k off for 25 floors lower doesn't seem that great at...

    Buying New vs Resale

    Again, thanks for the input guys. I'm going to continue looking at resale because of my low mortgage rate. When you guys look at price per square foot, how do you calculate it? with or without parking included? Also, could you provide some feed back on these units... This one is...

    Buying New vs Resale

    thanks for the input. I plan to exhaust my resale option first considering the ''shape'' of the market and the fact I locked in at a low rate. However, some of these asking prices still seem quite high considering how the economy is. For example, A ~590 sq. ft. 1+1 condo w/ parking is going...

    Buying New vs Resale

    Hi all, I was wondering what the extra costs of buy new vs resale are? For example, if I were to buy a new unit that is priced at $270k or a resale at the same price, what would roughly be the final price of each? I'm aware that both will have their closing costs such as lawyer fees...

    CityPlace: Montage + Neo (Concord Adex, 47 + 16s, KPMB)

    Solaris: Yes, that's the one I'm talking about. interchange42: I did post in the Real Estate section but had no replies, which is why I came here. But fair enough, I'll stop posting.

    CityPlace: Montage + Neo (Concord Adex, 47 + 16s, KPMB)

    anyone have any info on 'the gallery'? There are a couple units I have checked out but not sure if there is anything i should know about the building in general. There's a decent corner 1 br (~633sqft) that's going for $279k incl. parking and locker. Could use some feedback on that. Thanks.
