Yes, in the high-stakes sales- and commission-based industry in which we operate, us real estate sales professionals are — by nature — conditioned to go head to head with the next agent. By my last count, around 80,000 realtors are licensed to practice in Ontario and there’s only so many transactions to go around, after […]

Our April 2018 Market Report is Out! The proof is in the pudding – the Ontario Fair Housing Plan was not the answer.

For the fourth consecutive month the market has shown improvement in both the growth of average sale prices and the number of properties reported sold.

“My Property Will Sell Itself” – No, Actually, Having a Great Agent Will

While I could (and probably should one day) write a whole ‘real estate mythbusters’ post that debunks a bunch of the biggest misconceptions out there about this industry, I’d be remiss if I didn’t immediately devote an entire space to one which continues to make me sigh time and time again: That’s right, the whole […]

Millennials and the Market: How to Start the Buying Process

When it comes to millennials across Canada, real estate is no longer just a place to live. On the contrary, it’s become a primary part of their long-term financial plan. However, that doesn’t mean they should jump right into the market at any and all costs. For the next instalment of my ongoing “Millennials and […]

Our Chestnut Park March Market Report is Out – Once again, the lack of supply resulted in rising average sale prices.

In March the Toronto residential real estate market clearly demonstrated its resilience. Notwithstanding the provincial government’s attempt to engineer the market, it continues to respond to forces that have nothing to do with the Ontario Fair Housing Plan. That’s due primarily to the fact that the underlying basis for the province’s measures, namely foreign buyer […]
