Move to a small town outside of the GTA, where property is relatively cheap. You will still have a nice decent place to live for the half or even much less of the price of your current house. And this will be not far from Toronto!
Invest in properties such as condos or townhouses for renting them out, and have a steady cash flow. With this investment you will have a source of income that will help you pay your bills, and you will have a peace of mind for your future.
There are plenty of nice and safe places with amazing year round weather in Southern Europe, Asia and South America, where you can buy a decent property for the fraction of what your house worth in Toronto.

In many cases a house require some work before being sold. And sometimes an extensive renovation or even rebuilding is necessary in order to make to most profit of the sale. I can help with that as well, starting from inspection of the property and work assessment. I can also organize the renovation or rebuilding by hiring specialists that would do a quality job for an affordable price.
