While you savour the last lazy days of summer, as the nights slowly grow longer, why not give our August 2017 e-newsletter a read? Here is what you’ll find inside:
First, we share our Homewatch News contribution, ‘How To Know If You’re Up For A Fixer-Upper’, focuses on the emotional, physical, and financial stresses that one must be prepared for when taking on a major renovation. Given the age and the sky-high prices of Toronto’s vintage housing stock, pretty much every Buyer is faced with the reality that properties in their price point may require substantial work. Although housing choices may rely heavily on a budget and a checklist of must-have needs and wants, there are other implications to consider when turning a fixer-upper into a coveted living space! 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. This month’s buy comes from Urbaneer team member James Ormston, who assisted Buyers who recently arrived to Canada from abroad, and have already begun building their real estate portfolio. Being a young professional couple with a growing family, they sought well-situated and well-built propertiesfor fulfilling one of two types: a principal family home with an accessory income apartment for finanacial security, or, alternately, an income property – separate form their family home – to form part of their real estate investment portfolio. They were very willing to undertake repairs and upgrades to ensure the property could generate a high income and achieve its greatest potential! Read on to find out what they found!
July’s installment of our Dear Urbaneer series is entitled, ‘What Essentials Do I Need For My House And Garden?’. A client wrote: “I’m beyond excited to have purchased a house after such a long search. As a prior condo owner, I realize I’m not sufficiently informed on what sort of tools and equipment I need on hand to maintain a property, and in particular my new garden. What’s your go-to list of essentials for a house and garden?” Check out the full post to see Steve’s recommendations!
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 August statistics, one of our most well received blogs was entitled, ‘The Wackadoodle Toronto Real Estate Market‘, where Steve explored the state of the market today, using specific examples to demonstrate some of the wacky trends we’re seeing! Another popular blog was ‘A Newlywed Grows Up‘, whcih marks and end to team member Kellye MacMillan’s blogging hiatus. We’re thrilled for her newly expanded family and very glad to have her voice back!
