FINDING FAMILY-FRIENDLY CONDOS IN TORONTO
One-third of Toronto parents are raising their young families in a condo or apartment. With the lack of affordability in Toronto’s free-hold housing market, condos are becoming a much more desirable entry-point for first-time buyers as well as young families. But the question that remains is where do you find family-friendly condos and what should a young family be looking for?
What Is A Family-Friendly Condo?
Young families should first be looking for condos that have a number of bedrooms, typically 2 bedrooms or more. You want to find active amenities in the building, with a day care on the ground floor or somewhere nearby, as well as a 24/7 laundry access, rec room, pool in the rooftop, small library and several accessible elevators- newest condo complexes come with a local grocery store on the first floor of the building, which is very convenient for new families with children under the age of 10. And the building should be close to public transit, outdoor parks, and schools.
