Spring is here at last!
We couldn’t be more excited to see the sun and temperatures above zero!! As the Spring Market unfolds – and beyond – be assured that we’ll be monitoring and reporting on everything related to Toronto Real Estate, while continuing to discuss and debate the many facets of house & home! Bookmark the Urbaneer Blog, and we’ll keep you informed!
Here is what you’ll find inside our March 2022 E-Newsletter:
February’s instalment of our Dear Urbaneer series is entitled, ‘For Toronto Property Investors, What Are The Pitfalls Of Buying Older Dwellings?‘ In March, Steve discusses what’s involved in purchasing a multi-unit investment property in Toronto, with the knowledge that the original housing stock still standing in the central core of the City of Toronto dates from the 1850s through the 1940s and will need significant work. He responds to a client who writes: “We live outside Toronto but we are considering relocating to enjoy a car-free life in the central core of the city. We have been following your blog with great interest as you focus on different aspects of the Toronto real estate market. To get into your housing market, we think we should buy a house with 2 or 3 units, where we live in a part of it and rent out the other units to make it affordable. Is there anything we should know about going in this direction?“. Click here to read Steve’s advice!
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 past month:
The most popular post for March was: ‘When Dreams Of Domesticity Became Nightmares: A Recollection Of The 1989 Toronto Housing Market Crash’. In 1991, when Torontonians were processing the sobering reality that just 18 months earlier the city’s hotly inflated and highly speculative housing market burst in an exhaustion movement, Steve embarked on a career in housing. Crazy, right? In this piece, Steve recounts the real estate catastrophe that occurred in 1989, the signs that led to it, and the repercussions afterward. He also draws some parallels to the present market. This ‘first person retrospective’ had a lot of clicks!
Another popular piece was our refreshed discussion of lofts in Toronto: ‘Exploring Vintage Brick & Beam Factory Conversions & Concrete ‘N Cool Contemporary Lofts In Toronto’. Perhaps the penultimate aesthetic of urban living, lofts (and hard lofts in particular) are widely sought and competitively fought over. Here Steve describes his role in the conversion, marketing and sale of lofts all over the City, and extols the virtues of the two different types: hard and soft. Take a peek!
Thirdly, we had a great response to our post entitled: ‘How Urbaneer’s Toronto Real Estate Marketing Program Sold This Sun-Soaked Semi In Swansea‘. This blog is a bit of a ‘humble brag’, if you will; it’s our chance to share all the hard work we put in to one of our listings last year, and how well it paid off! Having had to adapt our sales and marketing techniques due to COVID-19, we have found new – and perhaps more effective – way to promote beautiful Toronto properties!
And – for lovers of unique urban spaces – don’t miss our sensational Toronto real estate listed for sale or lease on our site for your consideration!
