What’s up Toronto? As a city and as a country, times are changing for the better, but do you know what is one thing that remains constant? The need for a roof over your head. So, if you’re in the market for a new home, or just curious about what $700K could get you in the GTA, you’ve come to the right place!

$700K – 600K
We’re starting off this list hot with a 2 storey, upper-stacked townhouse! This spacious home is in the prime of Maple, only a short walk away from Canada’s Wonderland. As if that location isn’t enough, this open concept home is also equipped with two balconies and a massive amount of natural light, along with 2 bedrooms and a single car garage.
Summer is upon us, and like most Torontonians, looking to get outside and near the water at any opportunity, making this an ideal home choice. This 1 bedroom plus den condo gives you the best of both worlds, being downtown and only a short walk to the lakeshore and several city parks. If you’re not an outdoor enthusiast, then rest assured that you could spend every minute inside this condo and be just as happy. 11-foot ceilings and large floor-to-ceiling windows make this open-concept gem bright, airy, and cozy to boot.
$599K – 500K
The building amenities along with the location are so stacked that we’re ready to move into this condo tomorrow. Seriously though, the amenities include a grocery store, a gym, a yoga room, a pool with cabanas, a rooftop BBQ terrace, and more. Wowza. To top it all off, this 1 bedroom condo has floor-to-ceiling windows and is just a block from Momofuku Noodle Bar to satisfy constant noodle cravings (or is that just us?).
Sitting under 30 minutes away from Toronto’s centre and steps away from Square One, this location is easily accessible and highly desirable. We love the bright open concept (what’s new), and are obsessed with the stone wall detailing and the balcony giving views for days. Between the layout, the 1 bedroom + den, the balcony, and the location, this baby is hard to pass up.
North York pulling through with a gorgeous condo and a great location, woop woop! We can never get enough of an open concept, especially when it’s paired with an upgraded suite, a real brick wall, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a pool in the building. Now the real question is, where do we sign?!
$499K and under
A condo in Etobicoke for under 500K is almost unheard of, let alone a unit this nice and with a wrap-around balcony. With kitchen and lighting upgrades, a large walk-in closet, and a spacious open concept, this 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom condo for under 500K is a serious steal!
To finish off the list, we’re ending it with one of the best you can find in Richmond Hill. Here we have a bright, airy, open, and beautifully detailed 1 bedroom in the Beverly Hills Condo Resort Residences. Not only does the building have a ton of out-of-this-world amenities, but the condo itself also has a huge balcony and layout that won’t make you miss the heart of DT Toronto for one second.
Well folks, there you have it! That caps off our list of 7 homes you can get in the GTA for under $700K!
