Toronto Condo Market Update. Sales Strong and a Variety of Styles Available

Toronto Condos   Toronto Condo Market Update

The Toronto Real Estate condo market keeps on ticking along.   First quarter results show the demand continues to be strong.  Makes sense when you look at the amazing choices available for the consumers.   With the introduction of 17 new projects in the first quarter of 2008 you can find a variety of price ranges and styles.   From lofts, work/live options to the opulent million dollar condos that can be found at the 66 storey Shangri-law condo-hotel development. 

The hottest area for condos still remains in the Toronto core, representing 50% of the GTA’S condo developments.  With today’s price of gas consumers are eyeing units with easy access to the subway and TTC.   If gas prices continue to rise, handy commuting will be an attractive selling feature.

As an active realtor in the condo sector, I am often invited to exclusive previews where I can take along clients.   The latest invitation came from NXT Phase 2 Windermere by the Lake, south of Bloor West in Swansea Village.  With views of High Park and the street car at your front door both buyers and investors will be intrigued with this building.

The Ironflats is another interesting project, with its second phase of work-lofts creating an intimate community as well as a mix of business and boutique shops at street level.  Prices started in the low $200,000’s up to 1.7 million.

So the choices are out there.   It’s just a matter of finding the perfect fit for your lifestyle.

But where is the future of condos going?   We can only look at the latest statistics to help determine what the future could possibly hold.   But as detached homes sky rocked in the last few years in the GTA, condos still offer an affordable entry level price range for first time buyers and a more carefree alternative for investors.
