Happy Summer and welcome to our July E-promo! This blog will give you a time-saving taste of the fresh & relevant content you're going to find in our July 2018 E-Newsletter!
To start, we bring you our Homewatch News contribution, 'How To Maximize The Search For Your Dream Home'. We're lucky to enjoy such a wealth of housing stock in Toronto, with dwellings as divers as the residents who occupy them! Toronto's many boutique neighbourhoods are just as varied, offering unique proximities amenities, and day-to-day experiences. So how do you know which neighbourhood - and which property - is right for you? How do you weigh the value of a dwelling both objectively and to you personally as prospective owner? In this piece, we explore the three most basic components of 'value', and how to properly weight them as househunting criteria, as they apply to your specific needs. When it comes to finding the right match, seasoned real estate professionals can help guide you to the home that best suits your lifestyle. Allow yourself the time and assistance to find 'the one'! Our Homewatch newsletters are a special subset of our blog, which have been turned into direct mail pieces, and shared across various digital platforms. It's part of our on-going marketing efforts that range from traditional print campaigns, to our informative blog and our growing social media presence on Facebook, Google+, Instagram and Twitter.
We continue the tradition of sharing the homebuying journeys of select clients in our Home of The Month feature. For July's installment, we share the journey of first time buyers whom - after 16 months from the start their search - secured a property conditional on financing on their first offer attempt! When the couple first reached out to us - at the beginning of 2017 - they identified a desire for a 2bed stacked townhouse with parking in the price parameters of $600,000 or so in the central east end - including Regent Park, The Danforth or Riverside/Leslieville. So how did they end up finding domestic bliss in a detached bungalow? The story unfolds here - read on!
This month, our Dear Urbaneer series is entitled, 'What Is And Isn’t Covered In A Home Inspection?' This time around, our clients are wondering about the extent and necessity of a home inspection when purchasing a dwelling in the original City of Toronto. It's a great question! While it can be tempting to forgo a property inspection if you find yourself in competition with other Buyers, we would naturally caution against this, unless you're really well-versed in structural engineering, property construction, and building components, or you've reconciled that property is really worth just land value. Either way, the type of general home inspection conducted in real estate purchase scenarios is just an overview of the structure and major building components at that in that moment of time; you may still encounter unforeseen problems down the road, and must keep in mind that there are many components/deficiencies that aren't even inspected during a general inspection. Find out what is and isn't covered here!
We love bloggin and sharing recent real estate and culture info with you. Without a doubt, this month most popular post was our review of the fastest growing section of the Troonto real estate landscape: 'Here’s What’s Happening With The Toronto Condominium Market'. One reader called it the most comprehensive and succinct summary they'd yet read. Media outlets love inflammatory headlines, and nowhere more than in real estate. There's also a lot of conflicting news stories, depending on how certain statistics are interpreted. So, if you're thinking of buying or selling a condo, read through this piece to get an honest, up-to-date perspective on the state of the market.
Our second most read post was another installment of our Best of Urbaneer series: The Best Of Urbaneer: Featured Homes & Homes Of The Month. In our last Best Of Urbaneer installment, we took a look back at some of our most popular posts on Style and Design. This time around, we offer a series of Featured Homes. Most are from the Urbaneer team's popular 'Home Of The Month' blog, but there are a few standalone blogs that showcase some truly fascinating Toronto homes, accompanied by stories that are just as unique!. Either way, these are the homes that earned the most clicks at the time they were published!
