Toronto is rapidly becoming a hub of development with new Condos coming on to the Market every quarter. The first quarter of 2008 saw 3,433 new units sold, remarkable in the present economic times and even more so when you consider other Condo Markets in Chicago and San Diego are not selling near...

Sometimes you just have to go with the flow. I received a phone call from a Realtor to Stage a house in Toronto in the Lawrence/Royal York area. It had to be done quickly as the family had flown in from Los Angeles to sell the family home and were only going to be here for a few days.  I filled a...

Lately we have been hearing a lot about how the Toronto real estate markets are cooling off.  Some would promote the hype that the end has come and that the years of "wow what a great year for real estate" are over.  After all we are down over 12.5% in sales to date at the end of May 2008 when co...

We're all so busy, that we sometimes forget to thank the people who help us every day, to do what we do best. I am pretty good, usually, at thanking people for their help, as they provide it.  I'm also good at remembering people at Christmas, or Easter:  I thank (and give a small gift to:) the re...

While saving for a mortgage may be the last thing on young minds preoccupied with sports, dating, or academics, it's nev...

This information came to me via email, from my 'miracle worker' (mortgage specialist), and I thought it was worth sharing. Exactly how safe is it to submit your credit card details over the net?
