O’Hara Av­enue (near Queen and Lans­downe). Listed at $949,000, sold for $1,050,000. This place had only two bed­rooms, but it was de­tached and had a fin­ished unit in the base­ment, so they could have counted on rental in­come to help pay down the mort­gage. They also loved the fact that it was close to the Gar­diner, which would have erased a chunk of their morn­ing com­mute—and it didn’t hurt that Jor­dan’s brother lived nearby. But there was a prob­lem: an im­prop­erly sup­ported rear ad­di­tion had left the build­ing with a pro­nounced slant that would have cost hun­dreds of thou­sands of dol­lars to fix. It seemed too ex­pen­sive, so they passed.
