As a Toronto Realtor selling, and also investing in the Toronto Condo market, I have seen a vast shift with first time home buyers seeking a condo in the city rather than a home in suburbia. It’s no secret you would get a lot more bang for your buck in a newly developed or even a resale home in the 905 area code. Could this be because Condos that are for sale in Toronto are more affordable over a home? It actually has more do with it than that.
Condo living in the city offers a very unique type of lifestyle for both the young, savvy professional who wants nothing to do with home maintenance or the younger couple thinking of starting a family. Condos are often a first preference as they provide many benefits and amenities that a home cannot provide. There are many factors to consider such as location, floor plan, building amenities as well as maintenance fees and of course price.
Deciding on a pre-construction or newly developed condo or a resale unit? Being a real estate agent, I will say, it has been and always will be better to buy a resale unit rather than a pre-construction condo any day! Please refer to my real estate blog section here as I have written about the pros and cons of buying pre-construction Toronto Condos.

Located in Liberty Village, at the historic site of the former Irwin Toy Factory, this neighbourhood has all the features and amenities one could need, like the shopping plaza located behind the building.
In the early 1900’s the building was developed as a 20,000 square foot commercial space. In 2005, Laterna pioneered the conversion, redeveloped this space into 215 originally designed, live-work lofts. This building has a mix of authentic hard lofts and new soft lofts situated on the higher floors.
This development won Laterna the coveted Project of the Year award from the Greater Toronto Homebuilders Association and in total won an unprecedented 7 awards.
