Can't afford a house? Split this one with your friends

Let’s face it — homeownership just isn’t going to happen for some in the Greater Toronto Area.

Prices have gone up too far, too fast and wages haven’t kept up.

But there is a way to get into the market without going broke called co-living.

Basically, you split the cost of the home and live together, but separately... sort of.

The first home designed for co-living in urban Ontario is for sale.

Scroll through the images for a peek inside.
