Do you want a cottage, but also want edgy modern and sleek finishes?  I think I've found the house for you!  This house is really super cool, and very unique.  These sellers had a vision!  Just when you think you've seen barnboard used as the shower enclosure, you realize it's ceramic tile!  Same goes for the flooring in the entry way.  Smart use of storage throughout, and clean modern lines.  I think you should see it.  Oh, and did I mention it's detached with parking?  Shut the front door!  All that and steps to the subway, it's only 699K.  If you want to see it, let me know!

MARKET UPDATE FOR THE WEEK ENDING JULY 18TH


They say that Toronto has only two seasons... Winter and Construction. We feel your pain if you are part of the daily commute. But hey it could be worse. You could be looking for a house. It seems that buyers this year just can’t catch a break. Summers are meant to calm the soul and recharge those home searching batteries and, quite frankly we thought things would slow down just a titch, but apparently we were wrong. There’s a first time for everything.

 

New freehold listings in the city core continue to decline, backing off another 31% over last week (to 222 listings) but sales are up and multiple offers are back with a vengeance. While last week 47% of home transactions were in competition, this week that number has spiked to nearly 60%. One of the interesting things that we have been tracking over the last year is the clear divide between the east and west cores (E1,E2 and E3 versus W1, W2 and W3).  Homes in neighbourhoods like Leslieville, The Beach and Riverdale are very hot. While they are producing the same number of new listings as the west neighbourhoods of Parkdale, Roncesvalles and High Park, there are clearly more bidding wars in the east (70% in the east vs. 51% in the west). Buyers may wish to consider this fact as part of their home buying research.

 

New condominium listings are also down this week backing off a full 13% but sales have only decreased by 11%. Interestingly more properties are selling at or over the list price (20% as compared to 18% last week). We continue to be optimistic about the condo sector in the city. While thousands of new suites will be delivered this year there are lots of buyers looking for larger suites (instead of starter homes), and an increase in condo investors wanting to take advantage of rising rents.

Improvements will include making the station accessible for customers with all levels of mobility, building a second exit to enhance customer convenience and safety, and other general upgrades and repairs.

When the work is finished, Woodbine Station users will find a barrier-free path to all levels of the station including:

  • New elevators from street level to concourse and platforms
  • Sliding doors at station entrance and bus platforms
  • Improved wayfinding and signage

A new second exit will also be built at the northwest corner of Woodbine Avenue and Strathmore Boulevard in order to enhance customer convenience and safety. TTC staff are reviewing standards for second exits and will report back on possible changes that could allow second exits to also serve as entrances including possible impacts on cost, schedule, property acquisition and maintenance.

Some other improvements customers can look forward to include:

  • Repairs to exterior and interior finishes, lighting and signage
  • Repairs to stairs at main station entrance
  • Enhanced landscaping in community garden and bus bay
  • Repaving of bus loop
  • Landscaping near the bus bay and at the second exit will provide customers and local residents with a more attractive, greener station

Constuction has already begun, and the plan is to have it complete by summer of 2017.  Can't wait!
