Are you looking for a rental in Toronto but can’t seem to choose between apartment and condo living? To help you weigh the pros and cons, here are a handful of reasons renting an apartment suite is the superior choice:
1. Know your home isn’t going anywhere
With apartment rentals at Greenrock, you don’t need to worry about your home being sold out from under you or the owner of your condo unit unexpectedly deciding to move in themselves.
Greenrock feels honoured to have many long-time residents who have lived in our communities for several years—even decades because their experience is so positive.
2. No need to sacrifice square footage
New builds in Toronto are shrinking every year at reportedly twice the rate of Vancouver’s rental market. According to the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, the median size of a Toronto condo built between 2016–2017 was 650 square feet, a nearly 40% decrease in square footage compared to units built between 1981 and 1990.
Greenrock suites were built in the 1960s and 1970s and tend to be generously sized compared to their condo counterparts. Why settle for a micro condo when there are roomier suites available at Greenrock? From cozy bachelors to two-bedroom suites over 1,000 square feet, there are plenty of units sized to suit your lifestyle and needs.
3. Leave it to the professionals
Greenrock’s dedicated team has extensive experience in the property management industry and is committed to ensuring you have a positive experience from start to finish, including finding your ideal apartment suite, moving in, and settling into your new community. We are available 24/7 to answer your questions and concerns.
With condos, your landlord is typically the unit owner and they may not bring the same professionalism to the table. Compared to experienced property managers who know tenant laws like the back of their hand, your condo landlord may be unaware of your rights and potentially overstep boundaries even with the best intentions.
4.Condo-style amenities without the condo prices
A popular argument in the debate of condos versus apartments comes down to amenities, which is a common response to the hefty fees. But what if you can have the same quality of living at a more affordable price point?
Amenities offered in Greenrock communities include pools, fitness rooms, and community sculpture gardens. Don’t believe us? Check out our virtual tours and click on the community you want to see.
5. Have your pet welcomed with open arms
While Ontario housing laws state that the “no pets” clause in rental agreements is not valid and cannot be enforced for apartment buildings, condominium corporations are unfortunately within their rights to turn down your furry companion.
Rest assured Greenrock is a proud pet-friendly rental housing provider that welcomes all pups and cats through its doors. Residents love Village Green’s private off-leash dog park.
