How Much is Your Condo Worth? The Lowdown on Pricing a Condo

Wondering how much your condo is worth?

Determining the value of a condo is generally easier than valuing a house because there are likely identical or nearly identical comparable sales in your building. In determining the value of a condo, real estate agents and appraisers will determine the price per square foot of recent sales and use that as a basis to determine the value of your condo. For example, a 750 sqft condo may be worth $900 PSF (per square foot) or $675,000. Source: the BREL Team | Toronto Realtors
