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 March 2016 edition of our e-newsletter as we swing into Spring:
First, we share our Homewatch News contribution, 'It's All Visual: The Importance of Floor Plans', in which we discuss the increasing influence of visual elements in the buying and selling of real estate. Furthermore, we delve into how floor plans can both assist a Seller and protect a potential Buyer. This HomeWatch Newsletter was turned into a direct mail piece 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 on urbaneer.com along with 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 March we discuss a midtown location that is stacked with amenities – all nearby and conveniently located – in support of a pedestrian lifestyle, and our Buyer, who waited two years for the perfect unit to come to market in this coveted locale. Due to the current frantic state of Toronto's real estate market, there can be pressure for Buyer's to move very quickly. In this particular case, patience was a virtue!
In March's installment of our Dear urbaneer series, entitled, 'I Need A Crash Course In First-Time Home Buying', we respond to a series of questions posed by an overwhelmed property virgin: “As a first time house hunter – and hopefully soon first time Buyer – I’m super excited but also a little nervous about what’s to come. I feel like I have so many questions, I don’t even know where to start. I also feel like there are so many details, and that this is such a big, heavy decision. I’m worried that I’m going to miss something! Am I overreacting? Do other first timers ask as many questions as me? In a nutshell, what do I need to know when buying a house?” Check out our detailed response to discover what advice we provided this distressed first-time buyer!
As realtors, writers, and avid social media participants – not to mention lovers of all things real estate – our urbaneer team shares multiple blogs each week. In this month's issue, one of our most well received blogs was 'The Six Essential Layers of Property', which breaks down the value of a property by Site, Structure, Skin, Services, Space Plan, and Stuff (the furnishings) – it's a shrewd way of looking at property value that could be advantageous to potential buyers. Another popular entry was titled 'The Importance Of Accurate Homeowner Insurance Coverage'. While most property owners know of the necessity of property insurance, this post reinforces how critical it is your insurance coverage be detailed and correct.
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!
