This tiny home in Toronto is for sale for under $600K

Finding a home at a reasonable price in Toronto is no easy feat.

In February, the average cost to buy any type of home in Toronto was $996,000, with the average price of a detached home in the city climbing to a staggering $1.5 million.

So, whenever a home is listed for under or around $1 million, people take notice — even if it is an old mop factory, half-burnt or totally run-down.
