Urbaneer’s June 2017 E-Promo

Buy of the Month, Dear Urbaneer, Real Estate

Hold up! 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!

It’s the month of summer festivities! What a perfect time for the housing market to slow, while we celebrate Pride, Canada Day, or enjoy something as simple as a backyard BBQ with family and friends! And while you’re relaxing, give our June 2017 e-newsletter a read! Here is what you’ll find inside:

First, we share our Homewatch News contribution, ‘How To Reconcile Your Dream Location With Your Dream Home’. When building your house hunting wish list, there are three basic categories that your list will be split into: property size, location and condition. No matter what type of home you are after, these criteria will apply across the board; it’s what form these criteria take and what importance (or value- financial and emotional) that you place upon them that will really guide your housing search, and ultimately your housing choice. 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. For some, the neighbourhood known as The Annex – long a bastion for the cultural intelligentsia who celebrate its proximity to our city’s finer institutions and all places fashionably respectful – is deemed one of the most desirable areas to reside. We certainly understand; located north of Bloor Street west of Spadina in the city centre, this area of Victorian and Edwardian row, semi and detached residences is refreshingly understated and nearly devoid of the pomp and circumstance of other venerated neighbourhoods. It is, however, not inexpensive by any means which, for anyone seeking turn-key vintage-charm can often mean cost prohibitive. This month’s buy comes from Urbaneer team member Carl Laudan, whose Buyers set out a challenge for him that he embraced wholeheartedly. Enjoy!

March’s installment of our Dear Urbaneer series is entitled, ‘Dear Urbaneer: I Need Help With Architects, Builders And Toronto’s Committee Of Adjustment’ This time around, we’re helping a client wondering about how to the process of adding an addition or condiucting a large reno: “Dear Urbaneer – I came across your blog after googling Toronto’s Committee of  Adjustment process. I have also undertaken the journey and am now at a stage whereby I’ve gotten ‘C of A’ approval but need construction permit drawings and a building contractor. The scope of my work mainly involves a 3rd floor addition to a semi detached house. Do you have any tips you can steer me on about permit drawings and construction? Thanks and I really enjoy your blog!” Check out the full post!

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 June statistics, one of our most well received blogs was the latest edition of our seasonal prognostication: ‘Urbaneer’s Summer Toronto Real Estate Forecast for 2017: Part One’. But this time around, the real estate story really gets interesting; the winds of change have begun to blow Toronto’s housing market flat, but, as yet, are just gentle breezes lingering on the periphery. In another one of our other blogs, ‘With 65,000 Vacant Units, Will A Vacancy Tax Be Helpful To Toronto Real Estate?’, we discuss whether or not a vacancy tax would be effective in calming the market further. After all, a recent article in The Globe And Mail put the number of vacant properties in Toronto at 65,000. Yikes!
