Honestly, I probably know people you could move in with. Nuff people have strange living arrangments right now.

Honestly, I probably know people you could move in with. Nuff people have strange living arrangments right now.

I'm pretty picky about my living arrangements, but I am definitely interested. It would be great to have someone to split rent with off the hop, and would only have to worry about furnishing my room instead of the whole place. Although I doubt I would be much of a problem for others there are tons of things that make living arrangements suck for me.

Here are my deets :

I'm a 20 year old white non drinker / non smoker. I don't give a shit if other people do it, I just don't want to live in a place that people smoke or get high inside of, or have to constantly worry about people passed out in the hallway or living room floor. I'm cool with animals but would really prefer to not have them at my place. If I did move in with some people, I have a friend coming in August or September that I would be moving in with so it would only be temp. I don't drive, I'm not loud but I can be an arrogant prick. Really would prefer a high rise building to a low rise one but against beggers can't be choosers.

If you think there is ANY possibility of that working out. Feel free to let me know whats up. Having a temp place to live for a few months would be pretty sick.

Hey man, first off I would like to say Toronto is a really great city. I live in Pickering (about 25 minutes away by Go Train), and I go downtown quite often. This is a huge move, and you must be really excited.

The good news is, if shit doesn't work out, I'm guessing you have options other than being a homeless dude who begs me for change outside of Union. You're still young, so your parents will take you back if need be.

I'm 21, a recent college graduate (in web design and development), and I've had dreams of moving downtown into a nice apartment with a few friends and living it up. Unfortunately, I don't have 8g's saved up to be able to do this, lol.

I don't know much about living arrangments in Toronto, other than the obvious. The closer you are to the core, the more expensive the place will be. The transit is fantastic though, and you have many options (bus, streetcar, subway), that come around every 10 minutes or sooner.

I don't have much advice to give, and most of the stuff you need to hear has been said already, but I wish you luck and hope you have a good time in the T DOT!

Thanks Phyziks

This place appears to be an incredible deal.

The problem I have is living with a roommate is so much cheaper than a bachelor or 1 bedroom. Living in a $750 1 br is the equivilant of living in a $1500 2 br, which isn't necessary by any means. King and Dufferin is pretty damn close to the core of downtown. Is there anything that can be said about this apartment or location that could make me understand why its so cheap? Or is it just a good deal.

If you end up being able to deal with having a rommie, there's a ton of places around the Sherbourne/Bloor area for reasonable coin (I found a good amount from 1200-1400, all util's). I've been looking at that area in particular for a while because it's pretty centralized for my interests, and I was surprised at how decent the prices were. Since I'm not sure if we're going to end up making the move in September, figured I'd throw it out there. Wondering what all the guys who actually live in town think too.

I'm told that the Sherbourne/Bloor area has some serious prostitution going on. Can someone verify the accuracy of this for me please. I still haven't decided if that's a pro or a con, I'd just like to know.

parts of sherbourne aren't bad but around bloor isn't really the best area. yeah, there's some prostitution there. not as much as jarvis street though, which is one street over.

sherbourne/wellesely (tranny alley) is probably where id move to if id have known how poppin it was when i first moved here. theres really nowhere else to get a blowjob from a 200lb greek man with implants at 4:30am on a wednesday. i know some other parts of the city come with their own set of amenities, but that simply cannot be topped. im one for convenience.

Hey guys, my girlfriend is coming down and I was just wondering some cool things to do in Toronto that I wouldn't think of. Things other than the norm (CN Tower etc.)

Thanks!

Damn, I wish I'd seen this thread a month ago. I just moved to TO from Ireland with a mere 2Gs, but found a sweet place really fast -a great house just off Spadina, sharing with a few other girls but they're all cool. Rent is $535 all inclusive, and because it's so central I rarely have to take transit (feel like i'm saving a hunnerd a month!)

Still have to find a job though, and being unemployed is not really conducive to meeting people. I like the city though, especially the Kensington and Queen StW areas.

This is cool, although 2 grand isn't very much to make that move with. Keep me up to date on how you are doing! It's looking like my move is going to be for September 1st. I'm pretty excited, but I've also been very very cautious.

I've been reading this and it's helping me even though I am still in high school I plan on moving Toronto after college.. I have been there probably 10 times totally and everytime I go I love it more but I mean it's probably because I come from such a shitty small town in midwest America it's only 40,000 people and nothing really to do.. I mean we have nothing it terms of shopping we lost the gap because it wasn't making enough money.... thats sad and our mall is carpted and has really no good stores so I want to get out asap

We come from very similar situations. Except my shitty 40,000 person town is in Atlantic Canada. I feel your pain.

Okay, so who wants to move into this apartment with me on September 1st? This place is a killlller fucking deal.

http://toronto.en.craigslist.ca/tor/apa/746735881.html

Having said that, I'm looking for a two bedroom at a maximum of $1200 utilities included, as central as possible. I kind of would dig living in a high rise building just because there is no such a thing where I come from and it will be cool to hang out on the tenth floor or some shit. If you have any ideas / know of any places let me knooow.

yeah something like that would be great. but a 2 bedroom. so much more expensive to live on your own than with 1 more person.

kyle if your gonna move to the city and live outside of the downtown core, make sure its on a subway line. if not, its gonna be a bitch to learn the city quickly and the isolation will get pretty unbearable in the winter. if you got the cheese saved i say splurge on somehting central and once you got your barings, move somewhere more affordable after.

I think Bloor/Dufferin up to Bloor/Sherboune would be great. And any streets within walking distance to transit like St. George, Hoskin Ave, Bay, Huron , Robert, etc. would be awesome. I seem to keep finding really really nice affordable one bedrooms, but the rents for 2 bedrooms seem to be polarized. Either they are complete shit and cheap as dirt, or really really nice and unaffordable.

did you go on craigs list and look at sublets?

you might be able to find a place by the week or even month for sept thatll be cheaper than paying first months rent. thisll give you time to find a place by doing the legwork once your actually here. also, if you wait til oct, you wont have to compete with students.

only problem with this idea is alot of the shit is gonna get booked cause of the film fest. still though, its a smart move. if you can pull it.
