Homes awarded from lottery see prices slashed

Homebuyers searching for a steal on the market should look at the homes awarded each year from the Princess Margaret Lottery.

Last year's grand prize, a 7,000-square-foot home valued at $4.3 million awarded in May, is now on the market for only $2.9 million, according to Toronto Life.

Homebuyers in the midst of a move should look into self storage units, which can be a safe and reliable way to store many household items.

"They do fluff up the prices for the lottery," said Brad Miller, a Century 21 broker who sold the 2011 grand prize house for more than $1.7 million less than its initial estimated value. "I don't think anyone cares, because the prizes are still worth lots of money."

The 7,000-square-foot concept home features cathedral ceilings, five bathrooms, four fireplaces, three bedrooms and a yoga room in the basement

Self storage can be a smart way to hang on to valuable items without taking up room in a house or apartment. For Toronto storage solutions, there's no better than Jiffy Self Storage.
