North York Condos – $200,000 vs. $1,000,000

Leave a comment

What if you had $200,000 and wanted to live in North York’s Yonge Street strip. What do you think your home would be like?

Here it is…

You will have to borrow a couple thousand dollars more to buy a studio unit in 19 Avondale Avenue. The building is built by Shane Baghai and located just south of Sheppard Avenue and east of Yonge Street. The units are small so the builder sold the units furnished and they are usually sold furnished on MLS. If you have your own furniture than you can forget about them and start listing it out on Kijiji. Some of the items that the unit may included: fridge, stove, washer And dryer, Murphy bed, towels, bedding,  microwave, sofa, iron & ironing board, vacuum, toaster, TV And DVD Player, dining set, blow dryer, blender, toaster, coffee maker, pots and pans. A Murphy bed is one of those dangerous contraptions that looks like a cabinet but folds down into a bed. I wonder if they have any stats on how many people get injured by those in a year. I personally know of a person getting serious injured when a Murphy bed fell on him. So when you open the door, walk-in and there is the bathroom, there is the kitchen, there is your bedroom… you get the point, it is a studio unit.

Now what if you had a $1,000,000 and for some stranger reason, you wanted a million dollar condo in North York’s Yonge Street strip. What do you think your home would be like?

Here it is…

$1,100,000 will get you a 2500 sq.ft. luxurious unit at Tridel Skymark Centre 80 Harrison Garden Boulevard, located just a stone’s throw from 19 Avondale. You will have an 180 degree view of downtown Toronto. The unit will have a living room, dining room, family room, kitchen, den, 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. You could fit 7 of those studio units in here. The full-size kitchen will be finished with B/I appliances, floor to ceiling cabinetry and granite counters. The rest of the unit will have the typical luxurious features like Cornice moldings, 1/2 foot baseboards, 9-foot ceilings, exotic wood floors, stone floors and counters, built-in sound systems, security system and voice activated everything. Cleaning will be an ease because a maid is just a phone call away. Make sure you have lots of slippers for your guest because the marble floors are cold, well except for around the 3 fireplaces. Entertaining will be a blast with all that space, the terrace and most importantly the Jacuzzi.

Ding Ding. Vote for who won the battle and leave me a comment.
