I likes it...

150 Queen St. S. unit 402

Lots of windows...bright and shiny.

List 194,900

Condo fee is gross at 610.66   Heat, Water, Maintenance, Inside Parking, Storage, Snow Removalincludes. Heat, Water, Maintenance, Inside Parking, Storage, Snow Removalheat, water, maintenance, snow removal, underground parking, storage

however, has central vac, in unit laundry...and an entire wall of windows, with glasses in sunporch.

it's worth doing the numbers.  The condo fee, might cut me out.

Any offer I make out would be conditional on selling this place.
No bids/interest on this yet.  I will price out carpets on the weekend.

Apparantly there's been a few sales in that building recently....most likely due to the increase in condo fees, talked to a few is only paying just over 400...  They are starting to save up cash and are slowly increasing fees, because the know that the central forced air units will need to be replaced over hte next 5 years.

I suspect this condo fee is the top of the end where they are headed with other people's fees.

Have you done the numbers on home ownership plus a landscaper and handyman budget versus the condo? That is a pretty place, but the numbers are really painful when calculating even a good mortgage with those fees!

My other half mentions that he might be willing to be put on retainer for basic handyman stuff if that is your main holdback on a house again (you'd have to negotiate, but he did offer)

the link is borked. i'm sure it's lovely but 600+ seems pretty rich just for condo fees, even considering what it includes.

Agreed. I'm pretty sure that's more than what my brother-in-law is paying for a downtown 2-bed + den condo in Toronto for a lot of the same features.
