Looking for current information on Toronto and Etobicoke Real Estate Home Sales for  May 2019? Here are the latest numbers for Home Sales in Toronto and Etobicoke.

GTA REALTORS® Release May 2019 Statistics

Toronto Real Estate Board President Garry Bhaura announced that Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported 9,989 transactions through TREB’s MLS® System in May 2019.* While this result represented a substantial increase of 18.9% over the 15-year low in May 2018, it should be noted that the result was still below the average for month of May sales for the previous ten years, which stands at almost 10,300.

The year-over-year uptick in sales experienced so far in the second quarter of 2019 reflects spring polling results from Ipsos (undertaken on behalf of TREB) suggesting that the share of likely home buyers in the Greater Toronto Area has edged upwards since the fall.

Do you know about the implications of Radon in your home?

Posted on: May 28th, 2019

Etobicoke Real Estate News

Radon is a radioactive gas that can seep through cracks in the foundation, drains, sump pumps and exposed soil and can accumulate to dangerous levels in residential homes. Although it is a member of the noble gas family, it is anything but noble. An indoor radon level of 200 Bq/m³ (becquerels per cubic meter) or higher poses significant health risks for occupants and may require amendments to make the home safe. The good news is excessive radon levels can be successfully mitigated in every type of home.

As part of Radon Action Month, members of The Canadian Real Estate Association’s Federal Affairs Committee were provided alpha track long-term radon test kits and a mission: test your home and document your motivation for getting tested for Canadian homeowners.

Whatever your reason, radon testing is a must for all Canadian homeowners. Now is the perfect time to test your home because windows are closed and the furnace is on. Educate yourself on the dangers of high indoor radon and the testing process. Share our publication A Homeowner’s Guide to Radon

Toronto and Etobicoke Real Estate Home Sales for March 2019

Posted on: April 15th, 2019

Toronto and Etobicoke Real Estate

Looking for current information on Toronto and Etobicoke Real Estate Home Sales for this past March 2019? Here are the latest numbers for Home Sales in Toronto and Etobicoke.

GTA REALTORS® Release March 2019 Statistics

Toronto Real Estate Board President Garry Bhaura announced that Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported 7,187 residential sales through TREB’s MLS® System in March 2019. This result was in line with 7,188 sales reported in March 2018. For the first quarter of 2019, sales were down by 1% compared to Q1 2018.

“The OSFI stress test continues to impact home buyers’ ability to qualify for a mortgage. TREB is still arguing that the stress test provisions and mortgage lending guidelines generally, including allowable amortization periods for insured mortgages, should be reviewed. The supply of listings in the GTA also remains a problem. Bringing a greater diversity of ownership and rental housing online, including ‘missing middle’ home types, should be a priority of all levels of government. TREB is happy to be taking part in the City of Toronto’s consultations for the Housing TO – 2020-2030 Action Plan, and will certainly be raising the supply issue during these discussions,” said Mr. Bhaura.

Toronto and Etobicoke Real Estate Home Sales for February 2019

Posted on: March 12th, 2019

Toronto and Etobicoke Real Estate

Looking for current information on Toronto and Etobicoke Real Estate Home Sales for this past February 2019? Here are the latest numbers for Home Sales in Toronto and Etobicoke.

GTA REALTORS® Release February 2019 Statistics

Toronto Real Estate Board President Gurcharan (Garry) Bhaura announced that Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported 5,025 homes sold through TREB’s MLS® System in February 2019. This sales total was down by 2.4% on a year-over-year basis. Sales were also down compared to January 2019 following preliminary seasonal adjustment.

“The OSFI mandated mortgage stress test has left some buyers on the sidelines who have struggled to qualify for the type of home they want to buy. The stress test should be reviewed and consideration should be given to bringing back 30 year amortizations for federally insured mortgages. There is a federal budget and election on the horizon. It will be interesting to see what policy measures are announced to help with home ownership affordability,” said Mr. Bhaura.

Fresh Neutrals Make a Lasting Impression for Your Etobicoke Home

Posted on: February 19th, 2019

 
 
 

 

 

Etobicoke Real Estate

 

A new coat of paint can work wonders to update the look and feel of your Etobicoke home. Perennially stylish neutrals offer an abundance of choice to rejuvenate your home with these tips in mind.

Synchronize. To pull your room together, select a neutral shade from a work of art, a decorative accessory, or furnishings.

Tone it down. If tempted to paint your den a sunny yellow for example, consider an unobtrusive tone appropriate for reading or watching television.

Connect adjacent rooms. Two shades lighter or darker from the same colour chip or a complementary hue provides a natural transition from room to room.

Start small. A paint sample or an oversized paint chip helps you consider how the colour looks in your room, and under various lighting conditions, before you commit.
