Toronto Condo option gains ground as price gap with low-rise homes soars to record $251,000

price for a new low-rise home was $705,813 at the end of 2014 while its high-rise equivalent reached $454,476, creating a $251,337 


The gap between the price of a low-rise home and a condominium apartment has reached an all-time high and Toronto builders are pointing the finger at a 10-year-old provincial policy that has encouraged density.

The Building Land and Industry Association said its index price for a new low-rise home was $705,813 at the end of 2014 while its high-rise equivalent reached $454,476, creating a $251,337 gap that is the highest on record.

BILD’s results come as a new survey out Tuesday finds existing luxury home sales continued to climb last year. Re/Max agent Barry Cohen, who specializes in luxury homes, says sales for $2-million or more were up 43% in 2014 from a year earlier.
