There are still buyers out there who believe that a seller has to "take whatever they get" on offer night. That's simply not the case.

I still remember the last time I went trick-or-treating...kinda. I know I was in high school and any parent who answered the door to me...

Focusing on the list price can be a mistake in the Toronto real estate market.

So we're three weeks into the Fall market and things are as busy as expected. Inventory is up, which is a good thing but, as always, buyers have lined up their financing, gotten into "back to...

Many people think paying condo fees is a "waste of money". They couldn't be more wrong.


Well, we're in the dog days of summer. I have no idea where that expression comes from and I refuse to Google it (I feel like I just Google everything these days) but we're entering...

My gut always says that $500,000 isn't a realistic budget to get into the TO condo market anymore. But am I wrong?

There's no question that rentals in the core are still expensive, but has some additional supply finally cooled off the frenzy?

I do a lot of rentals. Specifically downtown rentals. I enjoy it. It keeps me on my game, meeting new people, new long-term clients, and it ke...

In an industry so obsessed with price per square foot, the math really needs to be done correctly.

I've been debating writing this blog post for a while. Why? Well, is it really in my best interest to correct agents when I see them giving incorrect information to their...
