Typically, when you sell your home, you at least fix a few things up before listing it and snapping those ever-important wide-angle photos.
However, in Toronto’s hot real-estate market, it appears you don’t always have to do that.
As first reported by blogTO, a rather strange-looking two-bedroom, one-bathroom starter home in Leslieville close to Little India, was recently listed for $599,000. What a steal, right? Think again.
As you may have already guessed, the last time this rather outdated and cluttered house was on the market was back in the 1980s.
Amusingly, its realtor describes it as a “black canvas” waiting for your “personal design and flair.” It isn’t easy to see the floor, walls or even what room is featured in the photos given how cluttered everything is.
It’s also worth noting that the home doesn’t have a basement and only features a crawlspace. Oh, it also doesn’t even include parking. However, there is a shed and what seems to be a backyard. The home even apparently suffers from several structural issues, and there’s paint peeling in several areas.
In all seriousness, if you have the extra cash or are handy yourself, you could likely fix this place up and make it look great. Alternatively, you could also knock the entire thing down and build a new home on the sizable 18.5 by 73 sq. ft. lot.
In the end, this is just yet another adventure in Toronto’s very competitive real-estate market.
