Why Real Estate Investing Makes (Dollars and) Sense


Turn on the television or scroll through Facebook, and chances are you’ll see at least one advertisement for a group or “guru” who promises to teach you how to “get rich quick” through real estate investing. The truth is, much of what they’re selling are high-risk tactics that aren’t a good fit for the average investor. However, there is a way to make steady, predictable, low-risk income through real estate investing. In this blog post, we’ll examine the tried-and-true tactics that can be used to increase your income, pay off debt … even fund your retirement!
One of the basic principles of real estate investment lies in this fact: everyone needs a place to live. And according to the Government of Canada’s Average Household Expenditures data, housing is typically a Canadian’s largest expense.
But there are other reasons why real estate is a great investment choice, and we’ve outlined the top five below:

How Does Title Insurance Protect You?


The word “title” is a legal term that means you have legal ownership of property. You obtain title to property when the owner signs the deed (transfer document) over to you. Title is then registered in the government’s land registration system.
Title insurance is an insurance policy that protects residential or commercial property owners and their lenders against losses related to the property’s title or ownership.

Toronto Real Estate Market Analysis
For September 2021



As we're entering the era of 'vaccine passports', I'm seeing a large percentage of our population taking advantage of heading out to restaurants and public events.

I take bachata and salsa latin dance lessons at Steps Dance Studio in Toronto and we're now finally able to dance freely between fully vaccinated dance partners like we did pre-covid. Fortunately thru the summer, some enterprising DJs took advantage of our good weekend weather and held outdoor social dancing events at either Ireland Park or Sugar Beach. And in the next few weeks, indoor socials will be starting too.

Our local real estate market continues to mystify and impress with a record-breaking average sale price and highest-ever condo sales for the month of September.

Low listing inventory = Highest ever average sale price

Hi, I’m Thomas Cook from Toronto's Real Estate Team at RE/MAX and here is our September 2021 Toronto real estate market report.
There was a 49% drop in the listing inventory during September as buyers came back from summer vacations.
Let’s review some of the Toronto Real Estate Board statistics and see what’s happened.
September numbers came in strong with 9,046 sales of houses and condos across the GTA. This is the third highest number of sales for September since 2000. A low supply of inventory contributed to keeping appreciation high.
Sales were down 18% overall from September 2020 although last year the market really took off that month.
Condo townhouse and high-rise suites took a much higher percentage of sales in September (37.6%) than normal signalling condos are back in demand. 3,401 units were sold in the month making that the highest-ever for the month of September.
The September 2021 average sale price for all GTA homes came in at $1,136,280… a big 18.3% increase compared to one year ago. If you compare this September to September 2019, two years ago, the average sale price is up 34.8%.
