Aircraft noise is a concern in communities around an airport ... even moreso around Canada's busiest airport, Lester B Pearson International Airport (YYZ, aka Toronto Pearson, and to a lesser extent, LBPIA). In some new developments, aircraft noise warning signs may be posted to warn of aircraft ...
Does anyone have some experience/background with Market Saturation Rate (MSR) as described by Darryl Davis (in his book, "How to Make $100,000+ Your First Year As A Real Estate Agent")? The somewhat oversimplified explanation is: "[MSR] shows the relationship between the number of houses for sale...
In Ontario, the Seller Property Information Statement, or SPIS, is an informational disclosure by the seller to prospective buyers; it is mandatory for members of some real estate boards, optional in others (e.g., the Toronto Real Estate Board).

Hamilton residents dug up a 1935 land transfer agreement which placed a restrictive covenant on the land, in the hopes of forcing a Mississauga developer to halt/scale back development plans for the site. The developer says, "As far as we’re concerned it doesn’t apply" -- such restrictions expire...
A deal going sideways was my exit cue as the SEO sales pitch approached minute 66 with their "closer". Over an hour being sold on the wonders of being on page 1 of search engine search results for my choice of exclusive keywords for my territory, if available. (How's that for a qualifier?) Gua...
