Our Office Renovation -- Update!

We're back!!!

We have finally moved back into our old space at 1536 Bayview!

Some finishing touches still need to be attended to before all of our furniture can be moved out of storage, so we are working in a bit of a "construction zone".  But we have some chairs and our desks, so business continues as usual.

For those of you who are familiar with our office, make sure you visit our photo album on Facebook to see what's been happening over the last few months --> "Renovation Photo Album" on Facebook

You will also notice that the famous dollhouse that sits in our window is still missing in action.  It is out being renovated too!  The fine people at The Little Dollhouse Company on Mt. Pleasant are doing some touch-ups to our 30+ year old house to make it look fresh again.

It's great to be back....Come by & say hi!

TREB Housing Market Charts - June 2013


Low-Rise Market Conditions Remain Tight in June

TORONTO, July 4, 2013 -- Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported 9,061 sales through the TorontoMLS system in June 2013 - down by less than one per cent compared to June 2012. Over the same period, new listings were down by a greater rate than sales, suggesting market conditions became tighter.

"The sales picture in the GTA improved markedly in the second quarter of 2013. While the number of transactions was still down compared to 2012, rates of decline were substantially improved compared to the first quarter," said Toronto Real Estate Board President Dianne Usher.

"As a growing number of homebuyers, many of whom put their purchase on hold due to stricter lending guidelines, now reactivate their search, the expectation is for renewed growth in home sales in the second half of 2013," added Ms. Usher The average selling price in June was up by 4.7 per cent year-over-year to $531,374. In line with the 2013 norm, June price growth was driven by the single-detached and semi-detached market segments, particularly in the City of Toronto. Over the same time period, average condominium apartment selling prices remained in line with 2012 levels.

"The short supply of low-rise home types in many parts of the GTA relative to the number of households looking to buy continued to prompt strong upward pressure on selling prices of singles and semis," said Jason Mercer, TREB's Senior Manager of Market Analysis. "We have also seen enough buyers in the better-supplied condo apartment market to provide support for selling prices at current levels.”
