Saw some one bedroom towns (stacked townhomes) actually selling for $330k at Markham and Sheppard.
They were closing at the end of June and some buyers couldn't close on their purchase. Saw a few others like that where buyers couldn't close, some of them were selling at 2019 and 2018 prices (prices from when they were initially sold). Corona is really hurting people's ability to close.

Edit: not stacked towns, they were 6 story condos. 3 people backed out on one type of model $327-$332k
Others up at the $370k range for 90 sqft more and one +den for $420k

Was looking at a whole page of these at the beginning of May. They got swooped up pretty quick.

That's generally the quick and dirty calculation used, yes, but there's nuance to it and if you're looking seriously you should talk to a mortgage specialist. I got a mortgage last year for almost exactly 5x my then-current income.

I got pre-qualified (20% under what I got from a real pre-approval @ Scotiabank eHome), but I didn't get the Doordash coupon.

How can I trust RBC for my mortgage if I can't even trust their word for a $15 Doordash coupon? LOL

Oh shoot.. is this offer expired? I don’t see the doordash mention anymore on the landing page. Should done it a few days ago when I first came across it.

Weird since it mentions valid till Aug 31 on the thread heading Expressionless Face

There was another thread here that got turned private, or deleted. My suspicion is that many people abused the offer and RBC caught on and told RFD to delete the thread, probably to many fraudulent sign ups on the offer.
😎Thanks RFD😎

If you got a code by completing the RBC form, does that doordash code still work ? Ie can I still redeem the code on doordash or did they kill the codes too?
