Any recommendations on real estate agents for a first time home buyer in the outskirts of Toronto

Hi RFD members, I was wondering about whether you'd have some suggestions on a reliable real estate agent in the area, as I am planning to buy a 1 bedroom condo in the outskirts of Toronto or in the neighbourhood (Etobicoke, North York, Scarborough, etc). I have no idea on how I should begin this process. I have talked to a couple of colleagues, and they refer me to pre-construction projects. However, I would like to buy a finished one. My budget is between around 375,000 only though, and my timeline is about 6-7 month from this posting! Thank you in advance for sharing your expertise and knowledge!

The outskirts of Toronto is a very big area, be more specific, radius would also help. Not that I can recommend anyone but it would definitely help.

6-7 months is a decent timeframe.
Buyers overpay when they are in a crunch and want to close ASAP.

I’m guessing it’s just you, or you don’t have a family of more than 3 so I’d recommend Oakville /Milton, and even Mississauga as it would suit your budget.

My advice would be to speak to as many agents as you can until you feel comfortable with someone’s vibe!

Feel free to pm me if you want to chat. I’m a real estate agent based out of Toronto, and lately been more focused on cities north and west of Toronto.

I assume you looking for investment? 375k is not enough to buy a decent condo and you'd be better off just buying REITs.

I have a 1+1 condo coming at Bayview village soon. You will get it cheaper than retail market. It's finished and can be viewed. Building is not finished yet. Hence its assignment sales. Location is amazing.

What is the reason for the 375k budget? All you can afford to make payments for? All the Bank says you can make payments for? Down Payment limit? Personal choice?

Look at Scarborough Town Centre area and specially 88 Corporate drive and 80 Corporate drive... Very well run buildings and within your budget. I am surprised that the price is still in this range in those buildings.
