Renting a Basement Apartment in Toronto
*originally posted on www.tylerpoperealty.com *
Renting a basement apartment in Toronto is beginning to be a common alternative for many. Why? The main reason is generally, basement apartments are not priced as high as condos.
I recently suggested a basement apartment to my client and before I could show her the pictures (it was within her budget and in the perfect location too) she said: “Oh no, I’m not interested in a basement, I need something bright and airy and not damp.” I replied by saying, “Yup, that’s exactly what I’m going to show you, something bright, airy and not damp.” And… I did!
There is still a stigma and preconceived notions about basement apartments in Toronto and personally… I get it. Throughout my years in Real Estate, I have done many leases and have seen my fair share of dark, damp, smelly basements. But we can’t categorize all basement apartments as the same.
