About Marco Fracasso, Sales Representative
Welcome to CondoSource.TO - your source for buying and selling Toronto condos!
Since the early 2000’s, Toronto has seen an unprecedented growth in condo developments with more new high-rise construction than any other city across North America. Whether this is attributed to population growth, affordability, or an increased demand for the conveniences of the urban lifestyle, there is no doubt that condo living is continuously growing in popularity. It offers a vibrant, active and exciting lifestyle that is redefining many Toronto neighborhoods. The skyline of our city has been dramatically changed over the last decade and numerous construction cranes keep dotting the skyline with more new projects still to come.
This new growth has created entire neighborhoods from scratch on land that was nothing more than parking lots or industrial use until not long ago. In downtown alone, we have seen the creation of brand new neighborhoods such as Liberty Village, Distillery District, CityPlace, and The Canary District. Other areas such as the Entertainment District, King West, the Bay St corridor, West Queen West and the Regent Park neighborhoods have gone through major transformations and are now high demand residential communities. Outside the downtown core, we have seen a major expansion of condo developements by the Humber Bay Shores in Etobicoke, the Yonge & Eglinton neighborhood, the Yonge St and Sheppard Ave corridors in North York and the central urban core in Mississauga around Square One Mall.
These new developments have been exciting for those looking to get into condo ownership as it has resulted in a wide variety of choices. There are now many different buildings & neighborhoods to choose from that offer wide ranges of amenities and great locations all around the city. Most of these buildings are conveniently located within walking distance to public transportation, shops, restaurants, parks, grocery stores, bars, theatres, fitness centres and pretty much anything you could ask for! While having all these new choices is a great thing, it can also make the condo buying process more confusing as many people don’t know where to start. Which buildings or neighborhoods are better investments? Is it better to buy pre-construction or re-sale? What are the red flags to look out for when buying a condo? Why do maintenance fees vary so much from building to building? Which neighborhoods would best suit my lifestyle? These are all important questions and it can make the condo shopping process quite overwhelming. It’s therefore important to find a true condo professional to help you navigate the market and ensure that you’re making the best investment decisions possible.
