Do you have the desire to relocate to Midtown Toronto? You’re not alone! Many young families and single professionals relocate just north of Toronto’s bustling Downtown. But why are so many people interested in Midtown? It offers exciting real estate opportunities for purchasing luxury houses, high-end condos, and upscale family homes. For example:
- Rosedale is one of the wealthiest neighbourhoods in the city and offers understated elegance and upscale shopping that attracts millennials and “old money” residents alike. Complete with Victorian mansions, manicured parks, and trendy boutique-lined streets, Rosedale is the perfect neighbourhood for Toronto’s upscale residents to grow their roots.
- Forest Hill is home to some of the city’s wealthiest families, making it one of the most affluent areas in the city. With a strong educational presence—it’s home to Upper Canada College—a profusion of lush landscaping, and access to Downtown, Forest Hill has long attracted Toronto’s most established residents.
- Bridle Path is home to successful financiers, business leaders, and celebrities like Drake. For families who want to spread out and enjoy their privacy while staying close to downtown, Bridle Path offers everything.
Now that we’ve piqued your curiosity about what Midtown has to offer—and what more there is to discover—check out Susan Macarz’s walkthrough of how to find your ideal Midtown home:
#1: Know Your Numbers
It’s a misconception that luxury buyers don’t spend much time “worrying” about the financial aspect of buying a high-end property. The truth is, it doesn’t matter if you’re buying a condo or a mansion because the numbers still have to make sense. Deciding how much you want to spend on a property will help you and your real estate broker narrow down your search.
#2: Write Down What You Want in a Property
Not every property is going to have all the features you want. If you’re searching for a high-end condo in the Casa Loma or the Annex area, write down a list of your must-haves, as this will help narrow down your property search when it comes time for viewings.
#3: Choose a Real Estate Broker That Knows the Neighbourhood
This point cannot be stressed enough. Working with a real estate broker who doesn’t know the neighbourhoods in which you’re interested will make it difficult for you to get an accurate picture of what buying and living in the area is like. Working with someone, like Susan, who has intimate knowledge of the real estate market in the community will save you money in the long run.

#4: Shop Around, But Trust Your Gut
People often say that it takes plenty of looking around before you find the right property. Sometimes, that advice can come back to haunt you. Don’t disregard the first or second property you looked at in the Midtown area simply because you haven’t shopped around enough. When you hire a real estate broker like Susan, you can rest assured that every viewing has the potential to be the home of your dreams.
