Urbaneer’s April 2017 E-Promo

Did you know we publish a monthly newsletter that you can subscribe to for FREE? Just click the link at the bottom of this post!

Here’s what you’ll find in the April 2017 edition of our e-newsletter! Flowers are blooming, and real estate is booming! Welcome to the busiest time of year for realtors: The Spring Market!

First, we share our Homewatch News contribution, ‘How To Embrace Sustainability In The Home’. While the green movement is gaining momentum, one obstacle to sustainability in building is that very few people have a clear understanding of the design principals behind the movement. We’re proud to be able to share valuable information with our readers in this respect, and in doing so, perhaps encourage our readers to make some upgrades in their own home. Many of our Homewatch newsletters are turned into direct mail pieces, delivered to around 40,000 Toronto households. It’s part of our on-going marketing efforts that range from traditional print campaigns – like advertising our Innovative Space ad in the Friday Globe and Mail newspaper (for over twenty years) – to our informative blog and our growing social media presence on Facebook, Google+, Instagram and Twitter.

Each month we share the tale of what one of our buyers have recently purchased in our Home of The Month feature. In April, we share the acquisition of a legal duplex with an additional lower level suite in The Danforth Village, purchased by an investor with a long term view to building his financial portfolio. Looking to spend under $1million, and generate a reasonable return on investment, this semi-detached dwelling on a corner lot with two car garage and four car parking near Mortimer and Coxwell Avenues offered a turn-key dwelling in a location that boasts a ‘small-town’ emanating from this tight-knit community-centric neighbourhood!

March’s installment of our Dear Urbaneer series is entitled, ‘Dear Urbaneer: Will We Have To Accept Less For Our Home If The Market Shifts?’. This time around, our clients who are preparing to put their home up for sale, are stressing on whether they’ll get as much as they want now that the provincial government has announced new rules, regulations and taxes. Here was the original letter: We’re selling our home after making a commitment a few months ago to relocate outside of Toronto. As we prepare to put our place on the market – which is coinciding with the Ontario government’s new measures to ‘cool the market’ – my partner and I are disagreeing on how much our residence might sell for. Obviously, we want to get as much as possible, but that objective doesn’t seem as cut and dried as we would originally have thought even a few weeks ago. It seems to me that, given the market conditions are so uncertain, it’s feasible we might not get the sum we hope for. What’s more, I feel like if we don’t get that amount, then maybe we shouldn’t sell. My partner disagrees and feels we need to move forward with our lives regardless of the sale price our house commands. It’s true we’ll be making a return on our investment, but I worry it might not be nearly enough as I want. Do you have any words of advice?” Check out the full post, especially if you’re currently on the house hunt!

As realtors, writers, and avid social media participants – not to mention lovers of all things real estate – our Urbaneer team shares a bunch of blogs each week. According to Urbaneer.com’s April statistics, one of our most well received blogs was ‘Toronto Real Estate: Are You Investing Or Speculating?‘. While the fundamental engine of what pushes prices up is the relationship between supply and demand, the force in Toronto which is placing a heavy hand on the dynamic of the market is now ‘real estate speculation’. In this blog we explore exactly what ‘real estate speculation’ is, and why it’s such a fierce problem in a fiery market. We were also thrilled this month to announce that Steven Fudge celebrated his 25th anniversary as a real estate professional. In ‘Celebrating Twenty-Five Years As A Top-Producing Toronto Realtor‘, Steve talks about his history in Toronto real estate, how he knows he’s one of the ‘lucky ones’, and how amazing it is to still love going to work every day!
