Located near Gerrard and Coxwell's Little India (AKA India Bazaar), Gainsborough Rd is a pleasant, tree-lined street of mostly semi-detached homes. Number 45, renovated a few years ago, is near the bottom of the street, just south of Eastwood Ave and just a few doors...

June 2018 Market Review

For most of 2018 so far, it has appeared that the Toronto real estate market has been 'down'. All along, I've been saying that it only looks that way because of the crazy price spike that occurred in the first few months of 2017, and...

4 Brookridge Dr. **SOLD!!**

Midland Park is a gorgeous neighbourhood of mid-century modern homes built in the late 50s-early 60s. Many existing trees were left intact, and the housing was designed and built to fit the landscape. Today, it's a quiet, leafy community of wide, winding streets, tall trees...

April 2018 Market Review

TREB reported 7,792 sales last month, a drop in volume of 32.1% from April 2017. The average sale price was down 12.4%, but keep in mind that at this time last year the market was still showing the effects of that massive price spike. April 2017...

March 2018 Market Review

Well, the TREB stats are out for March, and so are the breathless headlines! I was going to comment on a few of them, but the thought gave me a headache. ;) While sales volume fell significantly year-over-year (down about 40%), one has to remember that...

February 2018 Market Review

Once again, there's a lot of noise and nonsense about the Toronto real estate market. Headlines with words like "plummet" and "slump" make it seem as though the market is in bad shape. It's not. Firstly, we typically compare a month (e.g. February) to the same...

January 2018 Market Review

You may have heard that 'sales were down' in January, with the implication that that's a bad thing. As anyone actively involved in the Toronto real estate market knows, the market is not 'down' at all. In fact, it's crazy busy out there. The first thing...

1113-231 Fort York Blvd **SOLD!!**

Update: We had over 130 showings booked for this great starter condo, and generated 11 offers! The property sold 'firm' on offer night. The condo market is hot! *** The amount of development around Fort York in recent years has been amazing. Not only have loads of...

December 2017/Year End Market Review

The Toronto real estate market survived a roller-coaster-like year in 2017. The first quarter (Q1) saw wicked price increases, followed by a hard rebound in prices in Q2, which in turn was followed by a period of relative calm in Q3, then a surge in...
