This is what a $3 million house looks like in Toronto vs other cities

Toronto Home sales are now at the lowest point they've been in a decade—not surprising given how few affordable residences there are in the market. If you've got a starter budget of $3 million, however, you should be able to afford a detached home that's more than satisfactory.

This is what a $3 million house looks like in Toronto vs other cities.

Built just in 2018, this sleek abode offers five bedrooms in a cul-de-sac near Royal York.  The end of this road also leads to a green trail running along Mimico Creek, for the nature lovers.
