1-bedroom "pocket listings"

With the completion of both Lebreton Flats II and Claridge Plaza II, the downtown inventory of 1-bedroom condos will be swelling shortly, and giving first time buyers a healthier choice over the next few months. However Claridge doesn't allow owners to assign their units or sell on MLS before the condominiums are registered so don't look for listings to show up online before June.

That said, those of us in the know have access to "pocket listings" and interested buyers would be well advised to start working with an agent now before the cream of the new condo crop is spoken for.
