(The title photo is a twilight view from the terrace of our current penthouse listing: Culture, Couture & Contemporary Living At Casa Condominio Near Yonge & Bloor!)
To start, we bring you our Homewatch News contribution, 'How To Create Co-Ownership Options With Freehold Housing'. The idea that a group of individuals could collectively purchase a multi-unit dwelling holds the potential to be a viable option in places where property values have grown at a rate that far outpaces incomes, and where land scarcity and availability of low-rise traditional houses have become serious barriers against homeownership. Find out some of your options here! 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, Instagram and Twitter.
We continue the tradition of sharing the homebuying journeys of select clients in our Home of The Month feature. This month, the couple we follow is happily ensconced in a place that is meeting their needs, so their search didn't begin as aggressively as it would have if time were a factor. Their motivation to purchase was less than it would be for, say, a corporate relocation, or someone navigating a life style change like cohabitating with a new partner, the arrival of a baby, or getting divorced. Luckily for this couple, after great patience, the right house finds them! The story unfolds here - read on!
This month, our Dear Urbaneer series is entitled, 'Does Wanting A Garage Mean Compromising On The House?' A client asks the following question: "As I put together my wish list to begin my house hunt, I know that there is one item that is a must-have for me: a garage. I love to repair and restore motorcycles, so this is at the top of my priority list. However, I recognize that the age and design of Toronto neighbourhoods in the central part of the city may not necessarily be conducive to this housing wish. Also, there are other features inside my hopeful home that I desire as well. What are my options? Is this going to require sacrificing something else in order to secure a garage?" Find our answers here!
Blogging is how we share our love of real estate, culture, the urban lifestyle, and Toronto! This month, most popular post was: 'Foreign Buyers, Inadequate Policy, And Canadian Real Estate'. With restrictions around property investment, particularly in China, along with the lure of Canada’s livability and opportunities for prosperity, Canada is a hot investment spot for foreign investment. The flow of capital (and the swift price appreciation that resulted) has largely centered on Vancouver and Toronto, but there has been spillover to other cities, like Montreal. Exactly how much has foreign investment pushed the affordability crisis in Vancouver and Toronto? Find out in the blog!
Our second most read post was 'Inside The Captain’s Quarters At The Black House In Charlottetown, PEI'. This is the latest installment in the Tales of Upper Hillsborough, which shares the journey of two Urbaneer team members, James Ormston and Steven Fudge, who have spent a decade renovating a dilapidated vintage triplex in idyllic Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. This post reveals the middle of three rental suites, The Captain's Quarters, now complete!
