As we roll into 2016, we thought we'd share our top five most popular posts of 2015! So, without further ado: a year in review!
#1 Danforth East – A Village In A City!
Just as your homeownership experience will spread far beyond the walls of your new Dream Home, the neighbourhood and community that you reside in will filter back through those same walls and permeate all aspects of your daily life. We get such enjoyment from helping our clients decide which pocket of this great City of Neighbourhoods is right for them. We're so proud that the flavour videos by our parent company, Bosley Real Estate, and our own Neighbourhood Pages, are so popular! We love Toronto's diversity!
#2 Is Kitec Plumbing Draining Your Pocketbook?
At urbaneer, we make a concerted effort – through our blogs and newsletter campaigns – to keep Torontonians abreast of the latest market trends, as well as the rewards and pitfalls of becoming a homeowner. As part of this effort, we've written a series of posts about certain dangers that may come with buying a home, including A Guide to Radon, The Search For A Healthy Home, 14 Property Features That Increase Insurance Premiums and What are the Real Financial, Emotional and Health Costs of Commuting?. It's rewarding to see that we are reaching so many readers with these informative posts!
#3 How I Came To Transform A Vintage Home In Charlottetown, PEI.
In this blog, Steve shares his story on how he came to purchase – and then radically transform – a dilapidated three unit tenement in downtown Charlottetown, PEI. You can follow the fun – if not occasionally overwhelming – journey navigating through the pitfalls of renovating a century old manse in our Tales of Upper Hillsborough blog series. After spending about $600,000 over a six year period transforming The Black House, it's incredibly rewarding to see this behind-the-scenes look at renovation was so well-received!
#4 The Globe And Mail Features Urbaneer's Luxe Louvain In Leslieville
We always appreciate our Toronto real estate listings being showcased in The Globe and Mail. This lucky listing was featured when it first came to market as the Globe's Home of the Week, and as a Done Deal! We are ecstatic that the owner-designer – a practicing architect from Germany – received so much great exposure during the selling process!
#5 Toronto's Best Houses and Condos Of 2014 By Urbaneer
This popular post showcased our own 2014 'Buy of the Month' features, giving a better sense of the kinds of properties we sell, and the reasons why. Spanning the city from east to west, it is a glimpse at what some of our Buyers purchased this past year. Why did it garner so many clicks? We hope that readers saw pieces of their own home-buying journeys in the informative stories we had to share! You can read this year's post too –> Toronto’s Best Houses And Condos Of 2015 By Urbaneer
