There was a time when a single woman couldn’t even think about buying a home. It seems that a bell would ring if she visited an open house without a spouse. Nowadays, many empowered single women are buying and selling real estate. They are investing in their slice of the Canadian Home Ownership Dream. Time have changed as more and more single women are purchasing properties. The traditional definition of home ownership segment is changing. It is no longer only for the heterosexual married couple. Indeed, we are seeing more and more diverse groups of buyers in the Greater Toronto. From single women to single men, to the unmarried couple buying homes. To siblings getting together, to friends taking the leap into home ownership. In fact, a recent CMHC survey showed that single women are on...

There is something mind-boggling about the real estate market in the Greater Toronto. Indeed, it defies every economics theorem experts throw at it. Something must be up when both levels of governments are scratching their heads. How can they ease the burden of rogue housing pricing on local home buyers? Home sellers are asking if they should stay and renovate? Or should they move and cash out of Canada’s red-hot housing market? At the same time, homebuyers are asking if they should buy now? Or should they wait for the market to cool off? "Is now a good time to buy a home?" That is the premise of this blog post. We are experiencing a home pricing hysteria. They are signs that identify why now? Other signs may stress to stay put. Today, we will only discuss the four (4) main reasons to b...

Something is interesting about where young professionals decide to live. The term young professionals evolved from its initial origin. From referring to young people in their 20s and 30s, it now suggests a young person in a professional field. Young professionals are going to want different amenities in a neighborhood. Their needs differ from other groups, like young families or retirees. Whether they choose to live in the big city, a small town or somewhere with a little bit of both, the need is still the same. Are you a young professional? If so, there are questions you’ll want to ask yourself before choosing a neighborhood to call home. If you're in the market to buy a home now in the Greater Toronto, read this blog post. You'll find a general checklist that aims to help with that im...

Staging in Vaughan and Toronto GTA we are asked by agents how to introduce staging to their occupied listing clients and how to incorporate it into their listing presentations.We ask the agent to explain to the seller that most people are unable to "see" their own home as others view it.Buyers want move in ready homes if they are to pay top dollar.In the picture below of the sitting/dressing area of the master bedroom you can see it looks like most homes when people are in a rush in the morning to get going in the morning. It does not present the lifestyle of living in this particular home. A listing photo taken of a home with no preparation done is leaving money on the table serving neither the seller nor the agent.When we are at the house we take a few pictures of the rooms to show th...
