  Toronto, April 18, 2012 – Greater Toronto REALTORS® reported 4,557 transactions through the TorontoMLS system during the first two weeks of April 2012. This result represented an increase of almost seven per cent in comparison to the same period in April 2011. The number of new listings grew over the same period, but by a lesser annual rate than sales, which means market conditions tightened compared to last year.   "Competition between buyers remained strong in many parts of the Greater Toronto Area during the first half of April, with many listings attracting a lot of attention. Strong competition meant that, on average, sellers priced within market value range received offers that matched their asking prices within three weeks," said Toronto Real Estate Board President Richard Silv...

There are many free and inexpensive ways to conserve energy in your home. Some improvements for your home will cost money, but these are often good investments that will reduce your electricity bills in the future. Remember these main conservation ideas: Shift electricity use to off-peak periods. $With small meters and time of use pricing you can save money by switching some of your energy use to mid-    and off-peak hours when electricity prices are lower. Unplug electronic items not in use. Many electronic items — computers, TVs, cell phone chargers — continue to consume small amounts of electricity unless they are unplugged. Try plugging these items into a power bar with a switch, so you can easily turn them off when they are not in use. Choose energy-efficient products. Consider ene...
