To most Canadians, the thought of spending more than $2,000 per month on rent seems ludicrous. Anyone who lives in Toronto can attest to this in the form of snarky comments from out-of-town relatives who think we're "insane" for paying so much. We're not — but our city's real estate market is, especially since the pandemic hit and turned rent prices on t...Read More

Backing onto the Addington Greenbelt and right next to Burnett Park is this fascinating multi-generational home.  The backyard.  Listed for $3,150,o00, 21 Wentworth Avenue is a five-bedroom, five-bathroom home that for some reason reminds me of a motel.  The basement family room.  I don't know if it's the balconies with the steel guardrails that span almost the en...Read More

Tags: real estate, toronto, delia wang

When it comes to real estate in this city anything under $500,000 is a rarity, so the fact that this one-bedroom apartment is listed for under $200,000 is nothing short of a miracle.  Don't get too excited though, it's listed for $199,000 so it's just barely below the $200K benchmark ... but $1,000 is still $1,000.  The living room walks out to the ...Read More
