This is what a $2.5 million house looks like in Toronto vs other cities

Real estate in Toronto is still laser-focused on the rising prices of condos, but the cost of detached homes is actually going down. Those trying to decide between investing in either a condo or a house might actually fare better with the latter right now, though with a starting price point of $2.5 million, both options are pretty feasible. 

Here's what a $2.5 million house looks like in Toronto versus other cities.

This two-storey four-bedroom house is one of the newer-looking homes in the Princess-Rosethorn area. With a balcony in the master bedroom, you might be able to peer west toward series of parks running along Mimico Creek nearby.
