The December installment of our Dear Urbaneer series is entitled, ‘What Is Involved With Installing An Electric Vehicle Charger In Toronto?‘ This month, Steve imparts his knowledge to a client who is on the sustainability track and wants to know what it takes to install and utilize an electric vehicle (EV) charger in a residential home in Toronto. Condensing a combination research and correspondence with other clients, utilities and the City of Toronto, Steve itemizes the ins, outs, and steps to embracing electric vehicles (and their components) in The Six!

Steve and the Urbaneer Team post weekly blogs that share our love of all things real estate and that celebrate Toronto! Here are three of our most well-read posts this month:
According to Urbaneer.com’s monthly analytics, our most-read blog was ‘Living Apart Together And Toronto Real Estate‘. Steve has witnessed many perspective-shifting transformations and discoveries in the Canadian real estate scene during his career. In this piece, he discusses the ‘Living Apart Together’ (LAT) movement, which is becoming increasingly popular in North America – and even more so internationally. The space plan of a dwelling can influence – and shape – the dynamics of a household; different housing types, configurations, and even locations can be mitigating factors that have a strong impact on how an individual, couple, and family connect or drift, disengage or thrive – a significant factor in the LAT lifestyle in Toronto!
The second most popular post was ‘Shades Of Duplicity In The Foreign Buyer Tax For Canadian Housing‘. Here, Steve shares his observations about the role of government policy in influencing the dynamics of the housing market or, perhaps better put, to influence the perceptions of Canadians on the effectiveness of government policy – particularly with respect to Foreign Buyers of Canadian Housing.
Many readers were interested to know why ‘The Number Of Owners With Multiple Properties Are Increasing In Toronto.‘ The imbalance between the supply of and demand for Toronto real estate has been growing for decades, and the pejorative effect it’s having on affordability continues to dominate housing headlines. There are a number of factors creating an uneven playing field in a competitive housing market, but it’s really about how many individuals, families (as in generational wealth), investment groups, numbered companies, and financial corporations with access to capital are competing for property that can outbid or assume greater risk than the Canadian first-time Buyer. Let’s talk about the increasing number of owners with multiple properties who often have accumulated wealth from the increasing equity of their existing real estate assets, and how they’re shutting out other buyers.
