I Just Listed 88 North Carson, WOW that's all I can say!!!
Wednesday, 30 May 2018, 12:53:56 PM

This house is perfect! It has had many recent upgrades but still has that 50's vibe to it. It is located on a nice part of the street with low traffic flow. Ideal for the children and pets. 

The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The backyard is awesome with a convenient walkout off the Den. Originally a 3 bedroom is now a 2 bedroom and den. It can easily convert back to 3 bedroom if need be.

The bathrooms are fabulous with all those special features everyone wants.

The basement makes for a nice little retreat or party room or income potential if needed.

The owner has put a lot of love in this house and you can see it everywhere.

Call me to book your private showing, at $869,000.00 you will not be disappointed!

JUST LISTED 486 Fergo Ave. Mississauga THIS ONE IS A REAL BARGAIN!!!
Friday, 04 May 2018, 02:57:46 PM

Who says there are no deals in the GTA?

This new listing of mine at 486 Fergo Ave. Mississauga is a good deal!

The house is basically a very good house.

It has some work that needs to be done but nothing drastic.

With a lot of elbow grease and a little technical skills you will end up with a GEM of a house done up to your own liking!

Don't pay for the other guy's tastes! PAY LESS HERE!!! DO THE WORK YOURSELF AND GET WHAT YOU WANT!!!

The house is over 40 years old and just needs some routine work to be done.

If you are interested don't listen to me!

Call me to book a private showing and see for yourself.

You will not be disappointed!!!

There are more buyers out there than sellers. You know what that means!
Wednesday, 25 April 2018, 02:27:15 PM

All indications are pointing to an increased demand for housing in the GTA. We have more buyers than available housing for them.

This strong demand is going to lead to price increases until the supply side starts to increase.

The market will eventually correct itself. Until that happens, we are going to continue to experience a seller's market.

I have recently seen some articles stating that disposable income is increasing and household debt is decreasing. What a wonderful combination!

We are entering a time of prosperity that has not been seen for a long time.

Real Estate is going to be a part of it all. Are you thinking of buying? If you have your financing in place go ahead! You should not be disappointed.

Was Downtown last night to catch a play. I am from here and yet still overwhelmed by it all!
Posted on Thu, 19 Apr 2018, 03:46:27 PM  in Home buying tips

What a world class city we live in! I was downtown to catch a play and became completely overwhelmed by the awesomeness that is TORONTO!!! You got to remember, I was born here, I should be used to it.

There was so much happening, sporting events, art and cultural events, fine dining wherever you looked. The play a Mirvish Production was one of the best I have seen! I loved it! The sea food restaurant where we ate dinner, simply spectacular! The Captain's Boil, we loved it!

Toronto is everything a World Class City should be.

Buyers do not be afraid to enter the housing market! In the long run you will never go wrong here!

PS: An American In Paris was one of the finest shows I have ever seen!

A Slower Market Means That Pricing The Property Right Is More Important Than Ever!
Posted on Mon, 16 Apr 2018, 02:50:21 PM  in Marketing strategies

Pricing your property right is always the most important ingredient in your marketing mix.

When the market is a little slower it becomes absolutely critical that you do not overprice your property.

At any given time there are a number of buyers shopping for property.

When the market flattens out a bit you must do something extra to attract them to your property.

Having the property appear to be a bargain is the way to attract attention. This should lead to excitement on the part of the buyer and eventually an interest in buying. If you can have this feeling experienced by more than one buyer at a time, you should be looking at multiple offers on your property in no time.

Multiple offers should lead to you getting the highest price for your property. This should happen in the shortest period of time.

Slightly under pricing your property is the best way to attract more buyers, who may bid up your price in order to out compete other buyers. The end result being that you sell at or above market value. 

Contact me to discuss your particular situation.

The Spring Market Is In Full Swing, Properties Are Selling Just At A Slower Pace!
Monday, 16 April 2018, 11:18:47 AM

I have read mixed reports about the current real estate market. I have also experienced conditions that contradict each other. Some neighborhoods are booming and others are languishing. Certain areas are selling well over asking while others are taking price cuts.


Well we are seeing a market condition that has not been around for decades!

I am seeing the phrase VOLATILITY IN THE MARKET a lot more these days.

So what does it mean and what do I do?


If you do get caught, sit tight and ride it out! Let the market work back into your favor.

It is in markets like this where experience counts! I have been selling real estate for some 27 years and been investing in it for somewhere in the range of 35 years. A volatile market can work in your favor if you play your cards right. I believe the best time to buy up is in a down market. You can do very well in these types of markets if you take an analytical approach to your buying decision.

Caution is my best advice to both buyers and sellers. Work with an experienced agent that has seen these conditions before. If by misfortune you do get caught holding the bag, do not panic! If you could afford what you spent and have time to let the market correct to your advantage there is no problem. I have made a lot of really good investment moves in real estate! I have made more than my fair share of down right bad real estate investments too! It was not my intention but it is what happened  none the less. My only saving grace was that I could afford what I did wrong and that I was willing to ride it out until the markets went my way.

Those bad investments I still own and after a few down years turned out to be great investments after all. This is a market for the not so faint of heart! A bad market maybe or really a good market in disguise.

Why Buy An Investment Property In The GTA? The Real Question Should Be Why Not Buy One!
Saturday, 14 April 2018, 10:42:44 AM

The goal of many people is financial stability throughout life. As one company used to call it, freedom 55! A huge goal most people have is to live without the concern for day to day living expenses. 

There are many ways to achieve financial independence. Most of these ways however do require a unique skills set that many people do not have. Investing in real estate is not rocket science! In large centers like the GTA almost a no brainer! A guaranteed slam dunk!

What you do need is an ability to deal with tenants, an ability to cope with a lot of debt and a patience to just let the markets work in your favor.

I have been involved in rental properties since the early 80's.

My first investment was a duplex in Alderwood that I purchased for just over $100,000.00. This particular property had an existing mortgage that I assumed. I put very little into the property to buy it and the rental income carried all the costs. Looking back I believe my out of pocket on this property was in the range of $20,000.00.

Within 3 years I sold this property for over $250,000.00 and purchased 4 detached houses with the proceeds. Today this duplex is worth about $1,300,000.00 and the 4 detached houses, that I still own are worth about $1,000,000.00 each. Totaling $4,000,000.00!!! Not bad for an out of pocket investment of about $20,000.00!!! 

There are many ways to make a lot more money than this and for a lot less time and out of pocket investment. Do you have the know how to do it?

Investing in real estate is the easiest way I know of achieving financial security for the average person.

The Spring Market Is Here! Looks Like It's Going To Be A Good One!
Saturday, 24 March 2018, 11:05:05 AM

Well it happens every year, Spring!!!

With it we  have a renewed hope for better things to come.

The real estate market is a part of it! Properties are coming on board, buyers are getting out there, we are starting to see multiple offers again and it's all good.

I just read something about our economic outlook and from what I can gather it's a rosy picture! Apparently we are firing on all cylinders. The experts telling me this is comforting for sure but I don't need them to come to this conclusion.

Just have a look at what is going on out there and you'll know. The energy in this city is just breath taking! I LOVE IT !!!

Everywhere you look something exciting is going on! Our quality of life here is among the best in the world.

Real Estate is all part of it!

Enjoy Your Weekend Everybody!

192 Alderbrae Ave. Etobicoke

This is a sturdy little house in a most desirable neighborhood.

The home is sound and comfortable but could do with a little Tender Loving Care!

The Potential Is Definitely Here!

A little elbow greece and a coat of paint gives you an excellent living space.

Renovate for that WOW factor!

Maybe you want a brand new build? Why not! Everyone else is doing the same thing in this area!!!

To see this wonderful home call me @ 416-432-9587
