    It is still possible to buy a NEW 1 bedroom condo w/i the GTA for $200K or less?

    @mald1ta - You may have to go for a resale rather than new, I think. Condos in sq 1 Miss have become expensive! Did you check out any of the projects further west like Stonebrook Phase II or Miracle in Erin Mills?

    Shower Stall vs. Walk-In Closet

    There is a "bicycle storage area" and I bought a locker, hope the $2500 was worth it

    Condo Upgrades with best value

    It may be 1-2 years before I get the upgrade price list as construction won't start till Jan 2012. You may get the prices first!

    Condo Upgrades with best value

    Wow these upgrades are quite pricey! Thanks for your info/advice. It's gonna be a while before we discuss upgrades as the building is not scheduled to start until Jan 2012. Hope the cost of the hardwood upgrade is not too pricey, at least I have next year to save for it! The upgrades you had...

    thanks for the note, did not think of these. By "stipple" did you mean popcorn ceilings?

    Please explain the MCC prices - are they inflated?

    Yes, I wish to know the sq ft that generates $1300 rent and sells for less than $250K in the MCC area that is in pre construction right now.

    Condo Upgrades with best value

    I'd like some opinions on what upgrades would provide the best future resale value: (1.) Hardwood in the bedroom ( if the rest of the unit's rooms already have it.) (2.) French Doors on a windowless den (Currently have 1 door) (3.) Energy Efficient Appliances ( Already getting...

    Shower Stall vs. Walk-In Closet

    Some interesting suggestions you have there. I too did not see the value in it, but the bulder says for resale value to keep the shower stall. Guess I have time to buy the most utility based furniture to deal with this lack of closets. About your den suggestion, I took a look at the phase 1...

    Toronto | North Shore Condos | ?m | 22s | Fram | Giannone Petricone

    This building looks very classy. Its in a convenient location as well, close commute to Toronto via GO and close to MCC. Has it been incorporated yet? Wondering what the prices are like.

    Hi MBS-Guru, When you looked at the prices, do you remember what the Lakeshore model (803 sq. ft) was priced at and what extras (locker, parking, floor premium) cost. I'd like to know what the price fluctuations have been like for the area, as there is little to compare at this time...

    1B+Den @ Gramercy Park

    I like that this layout has no tunnel hallways that tend to eat up space. Good choice!

    Shower Stall vs. Walk-In Closet

    I'm just curious to know if anyone has gotten a builder to modify a floor plan as suggested above to make a walk-in closet? If so, were there a lot of extra (administrative) costs involved? Or is this a change that one must do after getting title?
