By Condo Culture

Location, location, location is a common phrase that’s often thrown around in the real estate business, and when it comes to condos, location is such a key factor when people are deciding to buy, sell, rent, or invest in a property.

Every market and every condo development specifically, has different pricing - our goal for this article is to showcase what your money will get you and where using data from Toronto and Kitchener - Waterloo (KW) to provide insightful comparisons.

Chart-Kw Vs. TO

__Current Toronto/GTA Pre-Construction Pricing __

Note that the below Toronto/GTA examples are expected to be move-in ready in the next few years, and some actually began selling in 2021 and in years prior, so the KW examples are even more attractive when you also factor in the significant time differences.

  • Starting from the low $600K’s - Buys you a very small (approx. 360 square feet) unit in the downtown Toronto core with a 2025 occupancy
  • Starting from the mid $700K’s - Buys you a 2 bedroom unit in Mississauga
  • Starting from the $800K’s - Buys you a decent-sized 1 bedroom unit on Toronto’s Queens Quay with a 2024 occupancy
