While you're enjoying the hazy, lazy days of summer, why not give our July 2017 e-newsletter a read! Here is what you'll find inside:
First, we share our Homewatch News contribution, 'How To Prepare Your Home For Emergencies'. To keep your house and the asset that it represents in great shape, you need to take every step to make sure that you are prepared in the event of an emergency and to mitigate potential damage to your property. In many cases, some ongoing maintenance and mindful behaviour can significantly reduce the potential for damage. Many of our Homewatch newsletters are turned into direct mail pieces, delivered to around 40,000 Toronto households. It's part of our on-going marketing efforts that range from traditional print campaigns - like advertising our Innovative Space ad in the Friday Globe and Mail newspaper (for over twenty years) - to our informative blog and our growing social media presence on Facebook, Google+, Instagram and Twitter.
Each month we share the tale of what one of our buyers have recently purchased in our Home of The Month feature. Sometimes we engage clients who are less concerned with 'where' and, instead, are more focused on the 'what'. In this instance, the Buyer prioritized how the property should first match the items on his wish list - within a specific budget - ahead of its physical location. This month’s buy comes from Urbaneer team member Kellye MacMillan, who assisted her client sharpening his property search with the aim of finding a home that would most enhance the quality of his day-to-day life - both within the home and as part of the surrounding community - including a shorter daily commute. Enjoy!
July's installment of our Dear Urbaneer series is entitled, 'Dear Urbaneer: Does It Still Make Financial Sense To Invest In Downtown Toronto Real Estate?' This month, a reader asks for Steve's guidance on purchasing an investment property in downtown Toronto based on his available capital: "I was recommended to you by one of your existing clients, who continues to find your knowledge insightful and your level of service excellent. I have been an investor in Montreal for several years. One of my children lives in Toronto, so I thought I might begin building an investment portfolio in your City. I am willing to spend upwards of $1M, with $200,000 in capital available as a down payment. Would you have any property ideas I might consider? " Check out the full post to see Steve's recommendations!
As realtors, writers, and avid social media participants - not to mention lovers of all things real estate - our Urbaneer team shares a bunch of blogs each week. According to Urbaneer.com's July statistics, one of our most well received blogs was the latest edition of our seasonal prognostication: 'Urbaneer’s Summer 2017 Toronto Real Estate Forecast Part Two: A Changing Market'. In Part Two, we explore this question: If Vancouver is immune to policy intervention thus far, the question is, can Buyers and Sellers in Toronto expect that the market will become more balanced and affordable - and stay that way? It's an informative read! Another popular blog was the new installment of Monika's Animal House series: 'Rufflecting On Woofstock 2017 In Toronto’s Woodbine Park'. As a long-time dog lover and owner, there was no question that Monika MacMillan would be attending this tail-wagging fun gathering with her rambunctious border collie Logan. Check out her review of the exhibitors, attendees, and the event overall!
