Toronto Condo Rentals   The number of units rented across the Greater Toronto Area in 2014 increased by 15% over the previous year, according to the Market Research firm Urbanation.   New rental units that are becoming available, from the release of keys to buyers in the newly completed condo buildings are much smaller in size than the older buildings and so, although the rental rates are higher, they have not increased much, only about 1% over the 2013 rates.   In my experience, I find that young people moving to Toronto, to live and work, prefer newer buildings, and are not too concerned about the smaller size, especially the kitchens. I guess it is because they do not spend too much time cooking!

    Toronto’s First Post Office (or Fourth York Post Office) is at 260 Adelaide Street East, and it continues to offer all the services, as an authorised dealer of Canada Post.   It is also a museum now, and you can get a reproduction of the historic cancel, in red ink; just like it was in its early days, of the 1830’s.   Admission is free, but donations are accepted.   It still functions as a regular post office and it is hoped that its unique atmosphere, helps to bring in business, to maintain this small museum and heritage site (the Georgian architecture of that era has been preserved).

First Pedestrian Tunnel -Under Water to an Airport     The world's first pedestrian tunnel under water to an airport is due to be completed this year.   This project under taken by the Toronto Port Authority involves building a pedestrian tunnel across Toronto's Western Gap to connect Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport to the mainland.   The pedestrian tunnel construction began in March 2012. When completed the tunnel is expected to provide an easy access route for travellers.   This pedestrian tunnel will have four moving sidewalks, travelling at 2.3 kilometres per hour. This part of your journey is expected to take about five minutes or so. At the end of the tunnel are escalators, which lead to the Airport’s check-in area.   I think the hope is that it will be completed before the Toro...

  Report Toronto Estate Market Year 2014   There were 92,867 residential sales through the TorontoMLS system in 2014, including 4,446 in December. This represented a 6.7 % increase over the 2013 sales figure of 87,049 and was just short of the record set in 2007.   While home prices certainly increased substantially in 2014, the purchase of an average priced home remained affordable, in terms of the average household's ability to comfortably cover their monthly mortgage payments.   The average selling price continued to grow on a year-over-year basis in calendar year 2014, with an 8.4 % increase over calendar year 2013 to $566,726. This included a 7% increase in the December 2014 average selling price to $556,602.   Lack of supply and high buyer demand was the contributing factor  for p...

Now, I can say ….... it was so.   In July, I had written a blog titled,  ‘Looking forward to the next six months …...’ ……., and to those that read it and commented on it, here is the follow-up,  ….., there were a STELLAR couple of months for me; I can now tick off an item on my ‘bucket list’, and I also made the Top Fifteen List for the month of September, in my Brokerage.     September and October were good sales month for me. I hope the momentum keeps up ……… even though the global economy does not look so great for 2015. The Toronto Stock Exchange has been going up and down like a yo yo recently.

Toronto Real Estate Board reported 2,496 sales through the TorontoMLS system during the first 14 days of December 2014. Up by 1.9 % compared to the same period in December2013. Over the same period, new listings were down by 1.8 & year over year. The average selling price for December mid-month transactions was $565,873, which represented a year-over-year increase of 8.6 %. Price growth was driven by the detached market segment in theCity of Toronto. Demand remains high but inventory is low. Buyers are having a tough time getting the homes they want because of multiple offers, which continue through December. “Sellers’ market conditions remain in place for low-rise home types, including detached and semidetached houses and townhouses. The condominium apartment segment of the market has ...

It's holiday time once again. I love to make flooded, fancy cookies. We had a large family gathering so it was a perfect reason to treat the family to shortbread and gingerbread snowflake and star shaped cookies.
