mississauga prestigious homes: Ford Has Angered Oakville - 03/08/10 07:40 PM
Mayor Burton is furious. Ford is leasing land next to its assembly plant at Royal Windsor Drive and the QEW to TransCanada. This is the company that has been hired to build the MegaWatt Power Generating Station that has everyone up in arms. Throughout the neighbourhoods of Mississauga and Oakville, you will see small white signs asking you to oppose this site. Yes, we, your friendly neighbours in Mississauga South, have been supporting your fight. It doesn't matter that Ford Canada is one of Oakville's biggest employers and taxpayers, Mayor Burton has now commented strongly: "They've stabbed this community in the (0 comments)
mississauga prestigious homes: The Value of a Realtor, Mississauga - 11/30/09 08:03 PM
Did you participate in the Real Estate Market this year? Did you sell a house that no longer met your needs and purchase a home that was more conducive to your lifestyle? If you are one of the thousands that did one or the other, or both, chances are you used the professional services of a realtor.It may seem that a realtor does very little. Maybe, the access to the MLS system was part of the reason you decided to work with a realtor. We, as realtors use the MLS system, but it is just one of the tools that we (0 comments)
mississauga prestigious homes: Natural Gas Plant, Betty's Personal Touch in Oakville - 10/04/09 06:53 PM
After months of protesting the location of a 900-megawatt natural gas plant, members of the Oakville community found out on September 30th that the Oakville site has been approved for construction. The Oakville site, located at the corner of Ford Dr. and the QEW, was one of four other sites being considered for the location. The other three sites, which were to be in the Clarkson area in Mississauga, were turned down after the combined efforts of protesting residents, politicians and health officials.So, Oakville residents do not want a power plant built in their neighbourhood? As William Mellor, from Durham, had (0 comments)
mississauga prestigious homes: Housing Sales Keep Climbing, Mississauga Homes for Sale - 09/03/09 07:31 PM
Great Headline in the Star this morning, "MARKET ON ROBUST REBOUND - Housing sales keep climbing, fuelled by low interest rates, and solid consumer confidence". The last couple of notices/blogs that I have sent out have been very positive. During my open houses, buyers still are asking about the recovery from this mess that we were in. It wasn't even a mess but the media was exploiting in the U.S.A. With a little bit of the regular summer slow-down now upon us, homes are selling quite quickly if they are priced correctly. We are still seeing homes flying off the shelves (0 comments)
mississauga prestigious homes: Basement Renovations, Home Renovation Tax Credit, Lorne Park Real Estate - 08/24/09 08:26 PM
BASEMENT RENOVATION VALUE No matter why you need the extra space, a finished basement can almost always benefit you when you decide to sell your house. Surprised? When you compare basement renovations to kitchen or bath renovations, your kitchen and bath will typically always increase your value by 1 or 1.5 times the amount you spend. And while that doesn't always stand true for finishing a basement, it's important to consider this:A finished basement can be the difference between selling your house and not.Particularly if you have 1, 2 or 3 bedrooms. Why? Often times a finished basement can be the (0 comments)

"CLOUDS LIFT OVER ECONOMY" The last couple of notices/blogs that I have sent out have been very positive. During my open houses, buyers still are asking about the recovery from this mess that we were in. It wasn't even a mess but the media was exploiting in the U.S.A. I still believe that we needed to re-educate sellers as to the value of their property and educate our buyers as to the process of purchasing a home. Mortgage rates remain great. The government has come up with massive funding. Both of these are starting to bring life back into the economy. (0 comments)

mississauga prestigious homes: Elegant Homes in Lorne Park and Churchill Meadows, Call Betty at 416 427 1875, First Time Buyers - 06/09/09 08:13 PM
Summer Is Almost Here and Good Real Estate NewsA week ago in the Toronto Star, Tony Wong wrote: "REAL ESTATE VIRGINS BUY IN". What does that mean? That means, first time home buyers are finally taking advantage of the low interest rates and great prices for homes. Of course the economy is on everyone's mind right now, but lower prices and low interest rates are luring them into the purchase of a home.Also, the first time homebuyer's tax credit and home renovation tax credit for 2009 have been influential factors. First time buyers are key to the market because they allow (0 comments)

Interesting article in the Toronto Star this past weekend!! It was written by Bob Aaron. Bob is a Toronto real estate lawyer and board member of the Tarion Warranty Corporation.There were certain points that I have spoken about in previous blogs, and also have on my web site. So, feel free to get the free information.The article talks about buying a condo from a builder and the problems that buyers can encounter. Remember, this can also happen when buying freehold homes from the builder. Bob states: " I had the opportunity to review a condo builder purchase agreement with clients. They (0 comments)
mississauga prestigious homes: Elegant Lorne Park Homes for Sale, Fine Homes in 905, Fine Homes in Churchill Meadows, Mississauga Real Estate - 03/02/09 07:46 PM
Buyers Playing Waiting GameThere is a lot of truth to the above statement. Buyers tell me that they expect prices to drop further and Mortgage Rates to decrease, and sellers are asking me, "Why don't I have an offer?" and panicking because the listings are not selling as quickly as they were in previous years. Sellers drop their price. Buyers seem to think that this is due to the market falling apart. So, they wait a little longer and think that the price will be reduced even more. Homes are taking at least 3 -4 weeks longer to sell. I have (1 comments)
