Want the perks of the city but without the expensive price tag? Among Canada's condos for sale, there are plenty in the high price range. However, there are some in major cities that are actually quite affordable.
Normally a condo that actually sits in an urban centre would cost way more than you might be willing to pay. However, there are actually some great options to be found for $200,000 or less.
These properties may not be as large as a house, but they're a step toward being able to call yourself a property owner, and can be the first step toward owning something bigger. And you won't have to worry about doing a bunch of renovations just to move in.
While a condo can sometimes basically just be an apartment, in some cases you can get more bang for your buck than when you're just renting.
Even if you think that owning a home isn't something that could be within your reach, it's nice to know what's out there, and it's good to see that some of the less expensive options aren't just out in the middle of nowhere.
You can own property and still enjoy everything that a city has to offer with any of these units.
