Not sure if you are familiar with the area that you posted those two links to, but watch out for the smell from the pig rendering plant about 300 meters away... It can be a bit putrid when the wind is blowing from the west (which it usually is...). It us actually one of the big reasons we did not buy a house in that area for a steal of a price, all other things considered.
Where did you end up settling? I love the area, we're also looking a bit further west and north. House prices in the area have just exploded though so it's hard to find anything reasonably priced.
Late reply, but we settled "north and west" - in the self-named Junction Triangle. We are loving the area - still developing (Bloor and Lansdowne is still pretty sketchy), but a great feel and one of the last affordable neighbourhoods along the Bloor subway line. However, that is changing as the neighbourhood is getting discovered.
