Toronto home prices by subway station

March 4th, 2019|Categories: Real Estate, Toronto, Toronto Real Estate, Toronto Real Estate Board|Tags: , , , , |

Owning a home “steps from transit” certainly has its perks and can command a pretty penny on its sale price. Whether or not a home is within walking distance to the closest subway or Light Rail Transit stop is a top consideration for Toronto home buyers who lead a pedestrian lifestyle, or simply wish to leave the car at home on their commute. But what exactly is the cost of a home or condo by each TTC subway stop?
