April’s installment of our Dear Urbaneer series is entitled, ‘Dear Urbaneer: Will I Ever Be Able To Afford A Home In Toronto?‘ This month, Steve assists a weary first-time homebuyer who is feeling like their dream of homeownership is fading in the face of rising prices and bidding wars. After assuring them they are far from alone in their uncertainty and frustration, Steve discusses the ‘Canadian Dream’ of homeownership, why it feels out of reach in Toronto, the factors affecting affordability, and the many options one has to increase the likelihood of achieving that dream of a owning a home. If you are considering climbing Toronto’s property ladder – or are feeling discouraged after many unsuccessful attempts to purchase your first home – this blog is for you!
The Urbaneer Team posts several blogs each week, where we share our love of all things real estate and Toronto! Here are four of our most frequently read posts this month.
According to Urbaneer.com’s monthly analytics, our most-read blog was ‘Visit Toronto’s Historic Chinatown‘. The patchwork of Toronto’s neighbourhoods contributes heavily to the vibe of this energetic city, and Chinatown – near Dundas & Spadina – is one of it’s most well-known and longest standing ethnic enclaves. But it’s also an area in turmoil, as residents fight for the fabric of the neighbourhood to be protected against encroaching forces of gentrification as developers hover. Read on to learn more!
The second most popular post was ‘Rennie Park: My Summer Sanctuary‘. It’s everything to have top-notch amenities within walking distance of our home. But, as a parent, realtor, and Urbaneer Team member, Cynthia is particularly grateful to have so many great physical activities and rec option close by – pursuits that the whole family can get involved in! Activities like hockey, tennis, skating, rollerblading, sliding, soccer, bocce, and baseball are all happening in the heart and hub of Swansea: Rennie Park. If you’ve never been to this lovely oasis… well, this blog’s for you!!
We also had an excellent response to our post, ‘Adventure Awaits Along The Humber River‘. In this outdoor recreation blog, join Tiffanie as she explores the Humber River and its plethora of bike paths, walking trails, and water activities! She’s a certified fitness, health, & wellness specialist, colleague of the Urbaneer Team, and lover of exploring everything Toronto has to offer – particularly the outdoors!
FInally, we’re featuring one of our favourite restos to grab a deep-fried dinner that reminds us of the coast: Harbord Fish & Chips! It’s the penultimate comfort food, filled with nostalgia and dependably delicious! In a city as big as Toronto, with a plethora of food purveyors to choose from, it’s a delight to find the few places who can take a classic like fish & chips and truly do it well – better than the rest!
