Another slow day for Toronto real estate...which is just fine with me on this gorgeous end-of-Spring/beginning-of-Summer day!

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Zoocasa's Toronto mid-month market report - no real surprises there!
  • Predictions for Toronto real estate for the remainder of the year - slow but steady!
  • Canadian Millennials apparently are still interested in homeownership!
  • High-tech real estate brokerage, The Red Pin, goes belly-up!
  • An examination of how each province handles "dual agency" fresh on the heels of B.C.'s change of law on the subject!
  • Someone sees a silver lining in the slowing real estate market - namely a chance to rethink rent control!
  • A look at how US tariffs on Canadian lumber may end up hurting US home builders as well as Canadian lumber producers. Gee thanks Mr. Trump!
  • And lots more including some guides on how to construct your Home Wish List, some reno and do it yourself projects, a glance at Celebrity bathrooms and some really beautiful but really expensive mansions in Toronto that are currently for sale.

Wishing you a great Tuesday. And, if you have any questions or need any help with respect to real estate - buying, selling or leasing - please do not hesitate to call, text or email me anytime.
