13 Things You Need To Know Before You Buy A Midtown Toronto Condo in 2018

Midtown Toronto Condo Does size matter?

Which 2-Bedroom Toronto Condos Near TTC Stations Give You The Highest Returns?

Last year, I analyzed the value of 2-bedroom condos along each subway line so that you could see what trends emerged at each station when it came to price.

I pulled the data from the Toronto Real Estate Board statistics based on condos that were within a 0.3km radius (394 steps) from a subway station. Some stations didn’t have any condos built within the 0.3 km distance while some stations had less than 2 condo sales reported during the period of Jan. 1 to July 24th, making some of the sample sizes rather small.

In this year’s version, I have added in the data from condo sales in the back half of the year (July 25th – Dec. 31st, 2017). Now we have a better idea of not only the values at each subway station but whether the values increased or decreased towards the back half of the year.

Here’s a list of tips on what makes a good condo for resale.




My Experience with Condo Boards

I’ve been there, done that, and bought the t-shirt.

When I say that, what I mean is that I purchased my first pre-construction condo in 2001. It was on Merton St and I lived there for a few years before I purchased my first house. While I lived at 194 Merton St, I was part of their initial board of directors taking on the roles of Secretary, Treasurer & President over the years. Let’s just say I learned a lot about condo management being an owner and sitting on the condo boards. Continue Reading
