Coady Ave: 3 bedroom Leslieville semi (SOLD)

June 17th, 2013 Posted by Leslieville, SOLD!! No Comment yet

Leslieville is one of Toronto’s ‘hottest’ neighbourhoods – and has been for several years. It’s no mystery why. Located just east of downtown, it has the feel of a small, family-friendly community. Just ten years ago that part of Queen St E was a far cry from the bustling neighbourhood it is today. Some of the shops and restaurants have been there for years, but the Leslieville renaissance has been characterized by an explosion of neat new businesses that both attract day traffic, and make the area super convenient for local residents.

Coady Ave runs north from Queen St, just west of Jones. It’s a leafy, tree-lined street thick with solid brick semis and some detached houses, many of which have lane parking. Number 69 has been extensively renovated since 2004. The main floor was basically ripped out and re-built. Flooring, walls and and a new kitchen were installed. Upstairs, the bathroom was expanded (you have to see it!). The electrical panel and wiring were upgraded, and the back yard was re-landscaped to accommodate one car parking off the lane. Over the years, most of the house has been improved. (A full list of improvements is available.)

With parking, and located just half a block from Queen St E, this heart-of-Leslieville semi is perfect for anybody (singles, couples and/or families) wanting to live in an active, friendly part of town.

Toronto Community Housing Corp Prepares to List 68 Houses For Sale

October 18th, 2012 Posted by Hot Listings, Housing, In the media, Toronto Community Housing Corporation No Comment yet

Following the sale in 2011 of five vacant houses in the east end, (listed by yours truly), Toronto Community Housing Corporation listed five more on Crawford St in the west end in 2012. Those ‘baby steps’ have now been followed by a big step.

TCHC recently announced that they were preparing to sell 68 vacant houses from their portfolio of 650+ stand-alone houses. They posted an RFP (Request for Proposal) on their web site, asking for qualified Realtors to prepare bids. The bidding window closed on October 2012, so one would expect that those houses will be coming on the market in the not-too-distant future. Money from the sales will be spent on repairs to occupied properties, and will go a long way towards improving conditions. (TCHC faces an estimated $751,000,000 capital repair backlog.) This is great news for residents.

This is also great news for the Toronto real estate market. Although 68 houses may not sound like much in a market with about 20,000 active listings, many of the houses are in the east end (Leslieville/Riverside especially, with a few others in Riverdale, East York and Scarborough), so it could make at least a bit of difference here. As I wrote recently, house buyers are struggling with a shortage of ‘for sales’, so even a small surge in the number of available listings could help take some pressure off buyers.

Also, many of these houses, being vacant and in rough shape, represent a bit of a blot on the local landscape. Presumably, the new owners will put some time and money into improving the houses, which will benefit the block – perhaps the whole street – on which it is located. This is great news for homeowners around those properties.

Stay tuned for more info. I’ll post/re-post news as it becomes available. In the meantime, here’s the list* of houses that have been approved for sale:
