Jeanhy Shim Love Condos

How would you like to reside in one of Toronto’s best-kept secrets? If so, pay close attention to the Scarborough area, says industry expert Jeanhy Shim.

LOVE Condos, located at Bonis Avenue in Toronto, celebrated the grand opening of its presentation centre and designer model suite on Wednesday. Jeanhy kicked-off the occasion by speaking about the Scarborough condominium market, and how the area compares to other municipalities in the GTA.

Jeanhy is a real estate analyst and strategist in Toronto who has worked in the industry for over 20 years. Her experience has brought her a long way. She’s currently the president of Housing Lab Toronto and is also the Chair of the BILD High-Rise Committee, just to name a few.

“Scarborough has always flown a bit under the radar and has had a bit of a bad rap, but really there is no justification for it,” she said.

LOVE Condos considers itself to be the best-valued condo project in the area. The units range from 487 to 1049 square feet, with prices starting in the mid $200,000s. Plus, there’s a cashback program of up to $25,000, along with a five per cent deposit.

“Home prices are quite high, and it really speaks to why we’ve seen such a such a boom in condominium sales in general. They’re a much more affordable alternative,” Jeanhy said.

“Even though Scarborough isn’t physically far away from [other areas in Toronto] the affordability is still there.”
