We're one of those people, we love the Junction area but can't afford a detached house here, I don't want anything semi-detached because the insullation is so bad that you can hear your neighbours breathe.
Some condo developments are becoming more family-friendly, they offer 3 bedrooms and family-friendly common areas… we were lucky to buy a huge 3 bedroom + den condo from "options for homes" by Delterra that will be built in the spot where the former Canadian Tire once stood by Dundas and Keele, the price was incredible.
