Poll results: Bringing baby to the condo?
While more condo developments are offering larger units and other child-friendly perks to try to attract families, only about a third (29 per cent) of Yourhome voters in last week's poll say they'd raise their kids in a condo.
More than half, at 54 per cent, said they wouldn't move baby into a highrise unit, while 13 per cent were on the fence. The remaining four per cent said they didn't know.
There are many perks to a highrise lifestyle, including the ability to be closer to green space, parks and other kid-friendly amenities (sometimes even in the same building) than you may otherwise be able to afford and a low-maintenance lifestyle that means less time doing yardwork and more time playing with the kids. But, it's also quite different from the homes with fences and yards where many of us grew up!
For this week's poll, we're looking at the recent positive news in the market. Multiple offers, competition and sales over asking seem to be coming back (check out What they Got for some recent transactions) after a slow winter, begging the question: Are we returning to a seller's market? Weigh in on the front page, and check back next week for the results.
