This past week has been exhausting! I’ve been busy helping my clients with Toronto condos lately — been experiencing bidding wars late into the night in multiple offers with as many as 61 offers for my buyers, and scoring amazing deals 5-20% below ask for my renters.
It’s always interesting to see where people are looking to move to, and for this week, here are six Toronto condo buildings (that have homes for sale and for rent that you can see right now) that are most searched for by those who are looking to get into the market [*] — and they are all south of Bloor St between High Park and Woodbine Beach).
Below are the 6 condos. But if you want to go straight into seeing what they look like inside, here’s the link to what’s available for SALE and for RENT in these condos that are most searched for online.
92 King st east – king plaza
This 30-year-old, 17-storey building at King and Church may not seem like the most obvious choice, but could be popular due to the fact that condos are all generously sized at a minimum of 668 square feet (as opposed to the stereotypical shoe box units in newer builds). [*]
120 Bayview Ave & 398 Front St East – Canary Park
The up-and-coming Canary District is developing fast, with a lot of new and forthcoming buildings to choose from, including this new complex. [*]
88 Colgate Ave – Showcase Lofts
With their high ceilings, open concepts, and exposed brick, loft apartments are always in demand, like those in this building tucked just north of Queen East and Carlaw in Leslieville. [*]
1830 Bloor St West – High Park Residences
Overlooking the city’s largest park, there are currently four condos up for grabs in this much-searched building near Bloor and Parkside — sadly, two of them are over the million dollar mark, though. [*]
1093 Queen St W & 106 Dovercourt Rd – TEN93 Condos
It’s easy to understand why these virtually brand new units above a Rexall on West Queen West are in demand, with an amazing walk and transit score, tons to do in the trendy area, and only 134 units in the boutique building. [*]
1100 Kingston Rd – Kingston & Co Condos
This is another snazzy new building that has less than 200 units, but this time, way east of the downtown core, in Scarborough near Kingston and Victoria Park. But just because it’s not right downtown doesn’t mean that buyers aren’t interested in these condos, most of which are larger than average at over 800 square feet and have bougier finishes than most. It’s also super close to Woodbine Beach — key for summer activities. [*]
