PEOPLE ARE THINKING CHRISTMAS, THOSE THINKING REAL ESTATE MAY GET THE BEST GIFT!
Posted on Mon, 10 Dec 2018, 01:53:05 PM  in Home buying tips

The year is drawing to an end quickly. Most people are not thinking real estate!

For those of you who want to buy, there are many really good and well priced properties out there.

Force yourself away from all the revelry and you just may end up with the best gift of all.

Landing that perfect home at a reduced price may be your greatest gift you could ever give yourself!

THE COLDER MONTHS ARE THE BEST TIME TO BUY IF A DEAL IS WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR!
Posted on Thu, 29 Nov 2018, 01:04:29 PM  in Home buying tips

The colder months are a good time to be out house hunting.

Many buyers are not interested in a house right now.

Sellers on the market now really want to sell.

So if Sellers are serious to sell now and if Buyers are not interested so much in buying right now, this would make it very advantageous for the Buyer out actually looking to buy. In short the situation leans towards a Buyer's market.

There is an opportunity around every corner. If you are a serious Buyer right now you could get a better deal from a Seller having to sell in a slower market.

Sometimes timing can really make the difference on how successful you end up being.

THIS TYPE OF MARKET HAS NOT BEEN AROUND FOR OVER 20 YEARS!
Tuesday, 27 November 2018, 10:34:22 AM
Tags:  

Boy things can change over night! Properties are sitting a lot longer, many are selling for less than they would have a few months ago and some are not selling at all. What does this all mean?

Well the market cycle is turning towards a balanced market. Buyers are having a greater say as to what homes eventually sell for. In some instances I would say that it is a Buyer's market.

What does this mean? Are Sellers doomed? What happens next?

Focus on your wants and needs whether a Buyer or Seller.

In my opinion this is the best market to be in if you are a move up buyer. Yes your property has come down in value but that more expensive home has probably come down a greater percentage than yours has.

So you find yourself entering the market now as a Seller and this happens!

Ask yourself if you really have to sell now? Does the benefit of moving out weigh the reduced price that you are about to end up with?

Strategic thinking as a Buyer or Seller is essential at this time.

Sellers in this market must really want to sell if they are willing to walk away with less.

From a Buyer's perspective, I am seeing some really great deals out there! If mortgage regulations would just ease up a bit, this would be the perfect time to buy!

GETTING BACK TO THE BASICS OF SELLING
Wednesday, 14 November 2018, 08:53:43 AM
Tags:  

The market in the GTA has shifted somewhat. I would say that it is a more balanced market with the lean being more to the seller's advantage. Still a slight edge in the seller's favour with the buyer's starting to have the upper hand in certain situations.

We have not seen this type of market for some 20 years! So what do we do now? I am a seller have I missed the boat? I am a buyer should I wait for prices to fall?

Personally I feel that it is going to be a more level market with some up and down with regards to pricing. It will all depend on the individual situation.

What do I do if I am considering entering this market?

Ask yourself do I have to buy right now? Do I have to sell right now? Can I wait? Will it be better for me or worse if I enter the market now?

Here is where an experienced agent can be a real asset! I have seen this market before and know what strategy to take for a successful outcome.

Know what the price of things is! Define your current needs and wants! Consider all the what ifs. What would be the advantage of not making a move at this time as compared to making a move?

There are many things to consider and that is why an experienced agent is essential for this market.

Call me to discuss your particular situation.

LOW UNEMPLOYMENT AMONG YOUNG PROFESSIONALS IS CAUSING A RISE IN DEMAND FOR RENTALS
Saturday, 03 November 2018, 10:17:36 AM
Tags:  

All indicators point to a strong economy.

The retail sector is doing good, business in general is upbeat, all things pointing to a prosperous future.

Young people seem to be having luck in the job market. They are making money and doing what young people do.

As a result of all of this, high end rentals are going through the roof! Demand is at an all time high!

Eventually this demand will move into the housing market.

The only problem with the housing market is the strict lending rules! Once this normalizes we should benefit from all this economic growth.

For now landlords are benefiting and hopefully in the near future sellers will have some of this bounty as well.

THE MARKET HAS SLOWED UP, NOW WHAT?
Posted on Sat, 27 Oct 2018, 09:17:49 AM  in Marketing strategies

There is an opportunity in every situation! The secret is first to find it and then to figure out how to use it to your advantage!

A slower market is the perfect time to buy up. All indicators reveal that the luxury housing market has slowed up considerably. If you are a seller in this market what do you do? Provided that you can wait it out, you do nothing! Sit back and wait for the market to come around to your favour.

However if you are a move up buyer, this is the perfect time to be in the market! Jump in and buy your dream home! That luxury market is down for now but it will not stay down forever!

As a buyer or seller this type of market takes a little finesse to reach a successful outcome.

There is not much room for mistakes!

I have worked this type of market before and know what needs to be done!

Need to sell?  I can help!

Want to buy? I can help!

Call me!

INTEREST RATES WENT UP AGAIN! WHAT ELSE IS NEW!!!
Posted on Thu, 25 Oct 2018, 09:03:45 AM  in Home buying tips

Interest rates went up again in Canada.

I think it is a sign of the times and we will get more increases as time goes on.

It is really a reaction to our growing economy. Business is doing well so this is going to happen. I do not think that this alone will have a negative impact on our real estate market. Sure it is going to cost more to borrow money but this is okay as long as the consumer can afford to pay for it.

Make certain that you can afford to enter the market before you do. If you can comfortably buy and carry the mortgage then why not?

Buy your dream home and enjoy!

LUXURY HOME SALES ARE DOWN IN CANADA
Tuesday, 23 October 2018, 02:01:42 PM
Tags:  

I just read something saying that luxury home sales are way down in Canada's major centers.

Is this a sign of things to come? Who can say for sure? Personally I think it is all a result of the strict lending rules put in place some time ago. Demand is there but if you cannot get financing to buy that's as far as it goes.

It is a concern and it could be a turning point in this market. Personally I do not think we are at that stage quite yet but the indicators are definitely there.

Now more than ever one must be careful if entering the real estate market.

An experienced agent can be the edge you need!

I have seen this type of market before!

Call me to help you buy or sell!

MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS ARE DONE! I THINK IT IS ALL GOOD FOR THE GTA!
Tuesday, 23 October 2018, 10:46:35 AM
Tags:  

Well the elections are all done municipally. Things seem to be pretty constant for the GTA.

The focus seems to be transit, housing and law and order.

I for one hope that we as a mega city can collectively role up our sleeves and get down to it.

There is always something that needs to be done. It will never be a time without these type of problems. A large center like ours needs constant work to keep it moving forward. I believe the crew we have elected is up to the task. Lets hope this is true.

Our real estate market is always front and center when any issues are discussed.

Things are positive and the market seems to be balancing itself right now.

Thinking of buying or selling?

Call me! It would be my pleasure to help you!

OUR CITY IS GROWING, EXCESS LAND IS TURNING INTO CONDOS. WHAT ABOUT OUR SUPPORT SERVICES?
Monday, 15 October 2018, 05:16:19 PM
Tags:  

When our old industrial sites turn into condos what happens to the former users of that land? Where do they go?

Many of our condo sites were once warehouses and industrial sites of employment.

Once they are redeveloped does anyone wonder where the previous uses went?

Some of those companies relocate to better locations but some are displaced and this could have a negative impact on the population.

Warehouses are very important for the consumer. When things are stored close by we have less chance of running into shortages. What about when we need a mechanic, or to buy home furnishings and so on. If these previous businesses are no longer close by it now becomes an inconvenience.

This is a difficult balancing act for city planners. Sure new buildings everywhere is great but what about the support services that are no longer there?

Could this just be creating a new problem? Hard to say but sure something to consider.
