Lofty Living

A loft has become a pretty common real estate option. A lot of young buyers are attracted to loft spaces because of their open floor plans, high ceilings, and artistic-like style. They generally offer more open space compared to an apartment or condominium and often come cheaper, making them perfect for first time buyers. If you are moving to Ontario and looking to buy an affordable home in a trendy area, you should consider looking at Toronto lofts.

But before you buy a loft, you should consider the variety of lofts on the market. A hard loft is usually an older space in a commercial or industrial building. These spaces are extremely basic and are often converted into studios or a warehouse workspace. They can be turned into a residential living space, but usually require renovations. Soft lofts are generally built from the ground up and are meant to be lived in. Some of their characteristics include high ceilings, large windows and open concept designs. If you are looking at Toronto lofts, be sure to consider whether or not it's space options are right for you.

If you have decided to stop looking at Brampton real estate in order to consider buying a loft, you should consider the lifestyle that a loft provides because it is unlike any other. In most lofts, there are little to no enclosed spaces. This is great if you are living on your own, but is something that should be carefully considered if you are planning to live with any person. No closed doors mean no real privacy and can be very hard to adjust to if you are new to loft living. This also makes it harder to have overnight guests or out of town visitors over. Lofts provide all the space in the world but may not be right for you if you like alone time. Another thing you should consider before purchasing a loft is decorating. The wall space in a loft can be overwhelming and the windows tend to be larger than life. This is going to mean more costs when it comes to decorating because no one wants empty walls or wide open windows. Just be sure to consider all of your options when you are looking at real estate.

Let's put the few negative considerations aside and focus on the fantastic aspects of buying a loft in Toronto. Much like the Meat Packing District in New York City and the Arts District in Los Angeles, Toronto provides very hip and trendy loft neighborhoods. These areas typically draw the same kind of people and can be great if you are trying to meet new people, start up a new business, or sell an art piece. Lofts also make a great place to work. If you are an artist or bohemian type and make music, movies, or paint for a living, a loft allows you do all of those things without filling your home with clutter. Whether you are looking for a place now or in the future, a loft may be the perfect place for you!
