The best looking open houses in Toronto this weekend

The real estate market in Toronto has been heating up this year with prices soaring to a shocking 12.3% increase since January of last year. Supply issues have invited bidding wars and led to homes selling wildly above asking. But with interest rates on the decline and more and more people looking to get into the market, there’s no point in waiting for things to cool down.   

If you’re trying to get your foot in the door or looking for inspiration for home renos, here are five of the best looking open houses that you can check out this weekend in Toronto.
