A big sectional couch defines the living room (and those bookcases make an interesting backdrop):

The history

This apartment complex was converted into a co-ownership building in 2009, which means that each person owns a percentage share of the entire property, rather than an individual unit. The seller, who works in publishing, has been here since the conversion, but is now planning to move to Leslieville.

Big selling point

The uncommon ownership structure should make this place a little less expensive than comparable condos, meaning the buyer may be able to get into a desirable neighbourhood at a lower-than-average cost per square foot.

Possible deal breaker

Lenders are wary of co-ownerships, so the buyer will probably need a big downpayment to get financing.

By the numbers

• $399,000 • 834 square feet • $492 in monthly maintenance fees • 70-square-foot balcony • 1 bedroom • 1 bathroom • 1 parking space
