Opportune home for flipping! [It’s near literally got flipper written all over it]

Calling all investors and home flippers!

No, this bungalow is not in dire need of renovation, but it could use it.

What’s best about this listing is:

Below average price for a detached Toronto home. It’s more than affordable.

But wait, that’s not it.

Due to it’s below average affordability and it’s location within a prominent neighbourhood, it leaves a fair amount of room for return when relisting after renovation or speculation.

But let’s be clear.

Speculate on this property all you want, hell, even live in it, but if you don’t renovate you’re missing out on it’s full potential.

That’s right, you heard me.

A below average price for detached property, that’s asking for a makeover and that’s in a neighbourhood that won’t be losing value in any foreseeable future.

That’s an excellent investment opportunity in Toronto real estate.

That’s a steal and if you want that dream home in Toronto, this home comes with a little bit of imagination.
