If you are interested in living in the downtown core of Toronto, a 2 bedroom in a decent area can start in the $700,000’s!
Since Toronto’s real-estate is so expensive, is home insurance also pricey?
If you purchased a detached house in Toronto, chances are high that it is older and requires many updates. For this reason, you can expect a home insurance policy to cost quite a lot. If you own a condo, your in luck, condo policies can be as little as $25.00 per month!
Why are Toronto condo insurance policies so inexpensive ?
All condo insurance policies are in that price range. The reason is that risk exposure in condos is much lower than that of houses. In a condo, you only own the walls and inside of your unit. The piping and electricity is all covered under your condo corporation insurance policy. So if a claim were to occur, your insurance company would have to only cover the inside of the unit instead of potentially replacing an entire house.
The largest risk in a condo unit is that your loss can also affect your neighbors. If a fire starts in your condo and it destroys two neighboring units, you are legally liable for their damages.
