This Toronto house is only $500K but it smells so bad you can't go inside
The price is right on a home recently listed for sale in Toronto but if want to see it, you'll need more than a PPE mask covering your face.
The home at 11 Lucy Avenue is listed for sale for $500,000, which might be a bargain considering the average price of a detached home in Toronto is $1.75 million right now.
It is even lower than the average condo — sitting around $600,000.
However, as many in the Toronto real estate market know, the list price isn't the price a property usually sells for — particularly when the market is so hot.
This two-storey home, located not far from Danforth Village, has three bedrooms and one bathroom.
Chances are you won't get to see any rooms as this home is in rough shape and the realtor suggests "viewing may be difficult, due to pungent odor."
If you are willing to strap on a gas mask, there are more hurdles.
The home is missing a subfloor in the bedroom so the "doorway has been taped off for safety reasons."
The listing offers no peek inside either, with exterior shots only for this home.
It comes as no surprise this home is listed as a tear-down.
Still, it comes with a backyard with some potential — there are trees and the possibility of making it into a backyard oasis.
And compared to other tear-down properties the price is good.
If you have the energy and resources, renovating an old property can be profitable.
One creepy home with a $749,900 price tag was beautifully renovated and back on the market for a cool $1.399 million.
So while this is not anyone's dream home, perhaps it could be, someday, if you can make it through the front door.
