Address: 1636 Dundas Street West, Unit 6
Neighbourhood: Little Portugal
Agent: Alex Brott, Keller Williams Referred Urban Realty Inc.
Price: $449,000

The Place: A large one-bedroom condo on the second floor of a boutique building in the Brockton Village section of Little Portugal. There’s a den off the kitchen, a balcony for barbequing, an underground parking spot and a five-piece washroom.

Big Selling Point: It’s rare to find such a stylish condo so close to downtown for under $500 per square foot (assuming the price stays that low after the offers come in).

Bragging Rights: This is a boutique building, which means fewer noisy neighbours to deal with. In fact, this unit shares only a single wall with another unit.

Possible Deal Breaker: Although this stretch of Dundas West has sustained a number of hipster hangouts in recent years, it’s still a bit grungy. The buyer should be ready to share the streets with customers of the cheque-cashing business and bathhouse nearby—some of whom are perfectly nice people, to be sure.

• 900 square feet, approximately
• $396 in monthly maintenance fees
