How to Sell Your Condo and Buy a House: BATHROOMS
Next to the Kitchen, the bathroom is probably the second most important room in any house. Just like when you bought your condo, adding multiple bathrooms to a property can dramatically increase its price.
Many starter homes in the best neighbourhoods in the city priced around $600K or less will only have 1 bathroom in the house and it’s usually on the 2nd floor. It may seem crazy but it’s simply because most of the homes in Toronto’s best neighbourhoods were built 80-100 years ago. Having a main floor bathroom is actually a very highly sought after feature, and if you can find one in a house priced under $600K be prepared to fight for that house!
Water pressure is something that you probably took for granted while living in your condo, however, in many of Toronto’s older neighbourhoods in particular, water pressure can range from mediocre to horrible. My expert tip for bathrooms is to always check the water pressure in the place that it is most important: the shower. One way to really test it is to run two things at once and see how the pressure in the shower holds up.
I wanted to show you this gorgeous bathroom in one of my client’s homes in cabbagetown. This is actually the master ensuite which used to be a bedroom in the original Victorian house. Notice the details that make this one special including custom vanity, built-in storage, high end finishes etc.
