It was a dark and stormy night....   You locked your keys in the car. You are holding all your purchases.  It's raining. You called someone to open the car door.  Rescue Me!   You find a service that will do a late night call out to your location; it will take an hour to get there and find you.  ....You wait impatiently.   They showed up and fix your problem.  Why are you NOW pissed that their job was completed in just 10 minutes and they want $150 just for showing up?   How is the speed of the job related to value?   Often in real estate, when people are selling their Toronto homes [we are firmly in a Seller's Market] I meet with the Vendor's to discuss Selling, Staging, Presentation, Photography and the newest Digital Phenom; Video Marketing.   You have painted, staged, cleaned and d...

We are expecting a significant mortgage rate increase in the next week. It is extremely important that you act on this now! Spreads on our bond yields which we use to set interest rates for all lenders are under water now.Today the largest courier company Ups purchased a large courier company in Denmark, to make it the largest company in North America When we see the logistics companies and courier companies grow as in in this example that is a tell tale sign that the economy is improving. http://www.businessweek.com/news/2012-03-18/ups-said-to-reach-deal-to-buy-tnt-express This is contrary to what the economist for CMHC indicated in late 2010 which was a freeze on interest rates over the next 14 months. This prediction was done prior to the fact that Interest rates kept dropping to the...

KPMG's performance Audit of Core Services was delivered.  Where can you cut core services by $774 Million Dollars in Toronto.We should be building schools, transit, hospitals to meet population changes. Instead we are making decisions about cutting departments and services. https://docs.google.com/gview?url=http://www.toronto.ca/legdocs/mmis/2011/pw/bgrd/backgroundfile-39505.pdf&pli=1&chrome=true What would you cut? What would be saved? Add your comments.... What ever is left over means there will be proportionate Property Tax increases and additional user fee. What more are you willing to pay for?

What better way to Celebrate the 144th Canada Day than with the residents of our own Park Lake Condominium Community along Lake Shore Blvd., W in Toronto. A well attended event that have a new community joined to greet and enjoy a Canadian summer on the Toronto Waterfront. The fifth floor has a natural open air terrace that opens out onto the Lake Shore between Windermere and Ellis Avenue. Each tower has complete access to this terrace and made for an excellent opportunity to watch the Toronto firework display over Ontario Place later in the evening. Additional Pictures of the events and participants!https://picasaweb.google.com/DavidPylyp/ParkLakeResidenceCanadaDayToronto?authkey=Gv1sRgCKGBxNHYm4mBNw#slideshow/5624861638614970578 Thank you to those who participated and come out to meet...

This is an interesting topic from Mark Weisleder on Bidding up offers and multiple offer protocol. Simply put the ethics and logistics of how and why one offer is selected over another. http://www.moneyville.ca/article/1013066--caught-in-a-bidding-war-know-the-rules Most sellers will instruct their agent to tell this anxious buyer to wait until the proper time period. However, if the seller wants to consider the offer, their agent will then change the information on the MLS listing immediately to notify every other agent that the rules have changed, and that offers can be submitted that evening. The agent will also likely call every other agent who has expressed an interest in the property to tell them personally that offers can now be brought immediately. When a buyer agent has a signe...

Have you noticed that the traffic is backed up in both directions every morning. You could be home already if you lived along this strip You keep passing this high density Hi Rise cluster that encompasses Humber Bay Shore and starts with Park Lake Residence on the south and the Windermere by the Lake and NXT on the north. Which are the most noticeable? Of course the Twin sisters and Toronto Landmarks that are the Palace Place and Palace Pier towers along the banks of the Humber River. Living here along the Lake does have benefits; access to public transit, local shops and community in Bloor West and Roncesvalles Village, opportunities for open air parks along the Martin Goodman Trail. The bigger question we need to ask ourselves is about ECO sustainability. How far and how long are you ...

The Competition Bureau is again being dragged into the fray between Brokers and their "right" to post mere listings Nationally. Although I am licensed only in Ontario, I should have the right to (MERE) list your house in BC. UMM because.... [MERE listing? I am just putting it online for you since anyone can fill out a form. I don't represent you, open any doors, make any promises, I just load your listing to MLS.ca] At the centre of the fight is a deceptively complex question – are flat-fee agents trading in real estate, or simply posting a listing to an online forum? If they are indeed trading, provincial regulators require them to be licensed in a province before accepting a listing. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/competition-bureau-asked-to-settle-new-fight-over-ml...

ASA - Accredited Senior Agent Toronto With the population of Canada aging, traditional selling methods will not provide the diligence and services that will be needed in coming years. I have been trained to deliver excellence of service to those in the mature and senior markets as well as their families, who may need special consideration. For a real estate professional, there is a lot more to listing and selling a home than just the paper process. It takes time, it takes consideration of people’s special needs and it takes a strong team of experts, both within and outside of real estate. You may be out of town, there may be disputes with siblings, who will take what and suitably appraise the memorabilia, keepsakes and valuables. Is dispute resolution needed? Who will secure the proper...

A book by Mark Weisleder – Put the Pen Down! What Homebuyers and Sellers Need to Know Before Signing On The Dotted Line – will prepare you well for closing day, and the day after. The veteran real estate lawyer and instructor adapted two other books he wrote for real estate agents to suit the owners and buyers who pay for their services. He has packed in a wealth of information. More importantly, an inspector could gauge the condition of the building’s heating, ventilation and air condition system, the roof and the garage. He or she could look into the building status certificate, condo association reserve fund, bylaws and rules, if the buyer knew to include this in the offer of purchase.

In a recent blog posting I asked if Garth Hated Toronto or just Realtors . I am flattered that Garth noticed a realtor's blog An enthusiastic supporter added this comment to my blog; Why would Garth's negativity on buying a poorly designed 349 sq. ft. coffin in the middle of some highway ramps lead you to believe that he must hate Toronto or realtors? Would you tell your kids to buy trash like that for $180K? On the heels of this exchange about employment for Toronto during a recession, infill housing for residential use, Housing within the city core to promote urban renewal and improved transit this item was released today from a gathering of rather learned people.
