"How's the market?" is always a loaded question. The answer is usually pretty complicated, especially now. Freeholds and condos are acting very differently.

For the first time in a very long time, rents are going down in Toronto. It's not a fun time to be a landlord with a vacant unit right now.

One could argue that open houses actually benefit the listing agent more than the seller.

I've always enjoyed working from home. In my most recent job prior to real estate I worked for a major US telecom company from home in Toronto for over 4 years. I found working fro...

Those monthly fees are a real factor when it comes to condo living, and condo values.

How is everyone holding up? I'm used to working from home. It's all I do. I think I go into my brokerage office like twice a year just to check my mail. I'm sure most folks at one poin...

It feels a lot like early 2017 all over again...But what's different this time?

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...
