February 2019 – Home Of The Month – East York

Buy of the Month, The Danforth

Welcome to Urbaneer.com’s February 2019 Home of the Month!

This feature provides a snapshot of what our Buyers have recently purchased or leased in the City of Toronto. This month’s post highlights one of Toronto’s strongest real-estate related markets – rentals!!

Facilitated by Urbaneer team member James Ormston, who has been assisting one of our long-time landlord investor clients in securing quality tenants for his East York properties, our successful tenant client came to us through an advertisement. This particular ad we had placed for the property was on a site which is becoming increasingly more popular for those seeking affordable rental accommodations in the city: Padmapper!

Having recently graduated from college and secured her first position in her new career, our intrepid client had embarked upon a search for  accomodations of her very own. She had previously been living in a shared residence (with an adored roomie of several years) closer to her old job and the college campus. With excellent references, a stellar credit history, and solid prior employment history – in addition to a letter from her new employer confirming her position and salary – all things were pointing to a positive outcome even before we had an opportunity to meet her in person! Convening at the property, we discovered that in addition to her strong credentials on paper, she was a truly delightful and engaging individual.

High on her list of ‘must-haves’ were affordability, proximity to transit, either shared or ensuite laundry facilities, a sufficient amount of space and light, and, if possible, an outdoor space suitable for entertaining a couple of friends during the warmer months. We’re happy to say that our ‘Gleaming On Glebemount’ listing ticked all of the requisite boxes and then some! Here’s the description from the MLS listing:

“This Rare East York Gem Offers Character, Charm And Opportunity To Live In A Connected Community Surrounded By Amenities That Will Improve Quality Of Life. Newly Painted With Eat-In Kitchen And Great Adjacent Study Area, This Generously Proportioned Suite Includes Convenient Ensuite Laundry, W/O To Private Patio/Entry Area. Walking Distance To Transit, Schools, Toronto East General Hospital And Minutes From Danforth Restaurants And Bloor-Danforth Subway Line!”

And with tons of space – and heat, hydro, water and central air conditioning included – this smart space provided excellent value! Have a look through our full promotional write up for the property on Urbaneer.com – Gleaming On Glebemount.

Here’s some snaps of this lovely lease:



One of several parties who expressed interest, our stand-out client was able to secure this lower level lease for $1,500/month!

Congrats to our client!
