There's a four-bedroom home on the market for $1 in Toronto

The cheapest house on the Toronto market last month was listed at $399,900, but now there's another inexpensive listing here to give the 4 Lucy Ave. home a run for its money ⁠— with an asking price of only $1. 

The home is located at 51 Soudan Ave. near Yonge and Eglinton, and though it's pretty obviously the cheapest house on the Toronto housing market at the moment, it's also obvious that the price is strategic. 

An online listing describes the home as a "renovated three-bedroom home with lots of room for entertaining or family in one of the safest parts of Toronto. Excellent place to raise a Family."

Royal LePage Broker Terry Min told CTV News the stunt is meant to evoke reaction by setting the price as low as possible.

"I get a lot of calls in regards to this property, however, it's people who are basically just curious about the price."

At that point, if no reasonable offers have been made, the asking price will be updated to reflect what the owner and broker believe to be reasonable.

So who knows what we'll see next.
