434B Midland Avenue Toronto

Toronto home is on sale for only $1

Located in the Scarborough Cliffside neighbourhood is this standard three-bedroom, three-bathroom semi-detached home. 

It's a new build that's bright and airy with an open concept living rom, dining room and kitchen.

One of the bedrooms. 

The bedrooms are on the second floor and seem well-sized.

The backyard. 

As for outdoor space, there's a decent sized backyard with a mature tree that will provide some shade.

A computer room and laundry room. The appliances likely still need to be purchased. 

But the closer you look at this property the more things start to seem a bit off.

The kitchen with what looks like a roughed in spot for a dishwasher. 

For example, take the builder basic kitchen. The listing mentions that there will be a fridge, stove and microwave and yet the photos show there's only a stove and microwave installed.

The basement has high ceilings. 

Additionally, the backyard is clearly missing a dividing fence and the basement is missing walls and a ceiling.

The basement walks-out. 

The listing does make a point of saying that the seller is willing to install the drywall but under what conditions?

Another bedroom. 

And the rest of the stuff isn't addressed apart from a note that says the home does has "flexible completion".

The living room and dining room that walks-out to the back deck. 

This could mean the home will be fully built by the time you move in, but then again who knows.

The kitchen. 

But the bigger red flag than any of the missing walls or fixtures is the fact that 434B Midland Avenue is listed for $1.

Upstairs you'll find a den and three bedrooms. 

Sure, it's probably just a classic sales tactic that we're starting to see more and more in Toronto, but when blogTO reached out to the realtor for a comment they refused.

The primary bedroom ensuite bathroom. 

They simply said the seller wouldn't like it if they talked about the property...

The primary bedroom has a four-piece ensuite and double closet. 

After some digging blogTO found that the home was actually listed last year for $1,388,000 but didn't sell.

Another bathroom. 

HouseSigma, which uses artificial intelligence technology to estimate home values, estimates the property at just over $1.2 million, which seems about right given the property size and the location.

The backyard gets lots fo sun.
