Buying a 2 bedroom condo in Toronto – What You Should Know

A condo is a type of homeownership. The individual units of a larger complex are not rented instead of sold to an individual. The condos downtown Toronto can be townhouses, commercial warehouses or renovated apartments. Any multi-unit structure can be turned into condominiums. Many people living in the large city opt for 2 bedroom condo Toronto instead of paying rent on an apartment. It is best to look for a condo by contacting a realtor as they will have more properties for sale and it is ideal to opt for a realtor who specialises in the selling of condos. Let’s see here some of the tips as to how to finalise on the condos.

  • First of all, you should know what is your budget and your annual income. By doing this, you will know how much you can spend each month for a 2 bedroom condo Toronto.

  • Ask the current residents as to how often maintenance and repair work is done.

  • Also check the distance from movie theatres, grocery stores, restaurants, metro stations, hospitals, pharmacies, etc.
  • Find out about parking, guest parking spots and if you do how many
  • Check for the amenities – storage, security, etc.

You might also find some restrictions which may not go well with your lifestyle. For example, you should check whether you can have pets in your condo development.
  • Before finalising inspect closely everything in the condo to make sure that everything is up to par. You can also ask your family member or friends to look at the condo and can have a second opinion from them.
