$750,000 Toronto Real Estate Listing Looks Like It Came Out Of A Horror Movie

It's the stuff of nightmares.

With how expensive housing in Toronto is, $750,000 for a house downtown sounds pretty decent, right?

Well, when they say something's too good to be true, it probably is.

This two-bedroom row house might sound like a good deal based on location alone — it's near Trinity Bellwoods Park and many great amenities. Houses in the neighbourhood on average go for more than $1 million. This listing's pictures speak for themselves.

The inside tells a different story. It needs of a lot of love, to put it lightly.

"Just Needs Tlc, Renovations And Remodeling To Become Your Dream Home!" the listing reads rather optimistically.

The two-storey home, which is more than 100 years old, started to gain attention on social media after journalist Lauren Pelley tweeted a link to the listing.

HuffPost Canada has reached out to the listing agent to see if there's been any interest in the home.
