This converted garage home in Toronto is listed for $1 million

It was just a few weeks ago when a tiny home was listed for $1 million and sold for $808,000 over asking, and now Toronto’s crazy real estate market has another small offering for a steep listing price.

This home, a two-bedroom "loft" in Corktown is listed for $990,000. The home is billed as “loft style living at ground level in downtown Toronto” and “an artist’s dream come true” but looks to be a converted garage with a functioning, roll-up door.

In fact, one person suggested as much in a comment.

“How is this being called a loft? It’s a garage! And going for close to a million?!?!? Sorry but whaaaaat?!?!” said one person on a Facebook post.

The loft does boast a large, light and airy master bedroom, it is close to schools, TTC and it comes with parking.
