How much should I pay for a 340sqft studio

My friend has a 340 sqft studio at 11 Wellesley, right across from Wellesley subway of Toronto.

His original purchase price for the pre -con unit is very low

How much should I pay for it now? It is closing or occupancy in May.

Well a 0+1 at 57 St. Jospeh St just sold for $626,000 so you are looking at mid to high $500k.

I would not pay for assignment more than 450k for this one.
I just acquired 580 sqft 1+1 on assignment,
5 mins walk to dundas subway for 540k for comparison

Original owner get a lot of appreciation in the past few years, many of them asked me to pay more than 200k for assignment at 200 Dundas street east. How can I get an assignment sale with little cash budget?

Kijiji and MLS is all I used for searching.
Heloc is one of the option if you don't have cash available.
You can refinance property later to cover that heloc.

Is this Dundas Square Gardens? That was a very good buy when it came out. I think units were priced cheapest in the core. People making a fortune there. That IMO was can't miss opportunity. Condos priced <$200K and Bears were too busy crying about affordability and bubbles. Coulda made 2-300K right there.

Edit: A lot of sales in the last couple weeks there.

I got one in Max condos by Tribute.
Dundas square gardens had even cheaper options, but not as good developer and floor plan so I did chose Max instead after all.

It seems like the whole Church corridor is releasing a lot of new projects. With west of Yonge being so expensive it makes sense that developers are looking at East of Yonge. 88 Queen East is getting released soon, I wonder what the prices are going to look like.

That's a really small garage. No way you can fit 2 cars on 340sqft. Maybe one car and motorcycle tops.
