We don't get a really good look, but I imagine a building inspector, city bylaw department and possibly the condo board might have a field day with that.clever or crazy , you be the judge lol..
renting out the living room with fake walls OMG
That's crazy. My kid at Trent U. is renting in Peterborough and they have a two bedroom ground level flat located near the campus with dining room, kitchen, living room and nice overall condition for $1,400 a month total, or $700 a piece. I hope university applicants look at the cost of housing before choosing their schools of choice. Also at Trent, everyone's tuition includes a monthly transit pass, so there's no extra cost of public transit. They do it right in Peterborough. Now if we can just get a passenger rail service to Toronto....
I started with a 25 year amort 7 years ago and have it down to 18. Probably will be paid off on under 15.I can't imagine having a 35-40 year mortgage. It's insane, you're much better off renting if you're staying in TO and investing the difference between rent and a mortgage.
Paywall free: https://archive.is/WPeAdAs of July, 43% of RBC’s residential mortgages had amortization periods of more than 25 years, with TD reporting nearly half with the same length.www.thestar.com
Or, even better, get the hell out of the GTA and move to a city where housing costs are closer to incomes. Back in 1996 when I graduated university and got my first job, as the export sales manager for a confectionery firm I was even then looking at leaving Toronto due to housing costs, and began speaking to my customers in the USA, Australia and NZ about cost of living there, with the idea of asking one of them for a job. But I got married and settled into Toronto and bought our house here in the city, where we live today. But if I was a 25 year old in 2023, newly graduated with the same job, I would definitely be looking to leave Toronto to work for one of my customers outside of Canada. This city and much of this country is no place for young adults.
Do NOT as a 25-30 year old lock yourself into a 35-40 year mortgage. That's a lifetime, where you're almost 70 years old when it's paid off. Statistically, many of you will be dead!
We've seen your kind before.Nobody is holding you down in your life but you. None of this stuff means anything to someone that is hungry for success. Man the F up
Assuming my kind from my name?We've seen your kind before.

I'm not, but I wish you continued success. It's the knocking people down to bring them up that I disagree with. That's the kind I'm referring to, and whom Tom Vu exemplifies, "look at my success, if you work like me, you too can have this, if you don't, you suck and deserve your fate," etc... all while exuding (and I'm not referring to you here) a whiff of scammery.If you take any supplement in Canada, you're likely buying from one of my brands.
