What is Home Staging?

Home staging is the process of preparing a home for sale. Through merchandising your goods, staging shows potential home buyers that your home is the best product available. Real estate experts know that a staged home sells faster and for considerably more money than one that is not staged.

Click Here to Request a FREE Home Maintenance Book! Your home is one of the single biggest investments you are ever likely to make, so you will want to do all you can to care for it. A home, like an automobile, will require attention from day one. Preventative maintenance is far more cost-effective than the crisis management approach of waiting until something breaks or wears down and having to scramble to have it repaired. Preventative maintenance can avoid repairs, extend the life expectancy of many components and reduce energy consumption. A well-maintained home typically sells more readily and brings a higher price.

Property taxes are often overlooked factor for many people in Greater Toronto Area. However, when buying a home, property taxes are nearly as important an issue as the selling price of the home.

Home Buyers Beware!

Residential taxes in cities and towns across GTA & surrounding area may differ a lot. In some of the municipalities residential property tax rates are so high, that they will not only hinder you as the buyer, but also will most likely draw concerns when you attempt to sell your house.

On October 11, 2007, following the 2007 fall Ontario election campaign when Premier Dalton McGuinty was re-elected, The Government of Ontario committed to add a holiday in February to increase the number of public holidays to nine per year. Recognizing that Ontarians work very hard and deserve more time to spend with the people they love, they declared the third Monday in February Family Day.

This additional holiday gives Ontarians the same number of statutory holidays as Alberta and British Columbia. Family Day is also recognized in Alberta, Saskatchewan and several other countries across the world including South Africa and Australia.

In honour of this new holiday, many Greater Toronto Area attractions are offering special promotions including 2 for 1 admission to the CN Tower, 50% off admission at The Toronto Zoo, and more. Check out Toronto.com for more great Family Day ideas and contact me for your FREE Toronto 2008 Calendar worth over $150 in Coupons for major Toronto area attractions!

Whatever you choose to do this Family Day, I hope you enjoy your long weekend. I wish you and your family a happy and safe holiday.

It seems each month has been a record breaker for the real estate industry in York Region and across the GTA. Central Richmond Hill N04 district led the way in January with a 59 per cent overall increase in sales compared to mid-January 2007, mainly as a result of attached/row house transactions.

Across the Greater Toronto Area there were 1,776 transactions, an increase of 11 per cent increase over the same timeframe a year ago, announced Toronto Real Estate Board President Maureen O’Neill. The average time a property is currently on the market is 41 days, down 13 per cent as compared to a year ago. The average price also increased considerably compared to the first half of January 2007. It currently stands at $367,574 an eight per cent increase over the $340,793 recorded at mid-January a year ago.

Despite the U.S. housing recession, where home sales are to hit bottom in early 2008 and the current housing crisis is expected to run through early 2009, Canada's real estate market continued to post significant price gains in the fourth quarter of 2007 and showed little sign of the usual winter slowdown. Toronto Real Estate Board Market Watch reported 2007 was Best Year Ever, with 4,646 sales in December and year-end sales of 93,193. This is 12 per cent higher than year-end sales in 2006 and 11 per cent higher than 2005, the Toronto market's previous best-ever annual performance!

Here is a summary of recent Royal LePage Real Estate Reports and interviews our president Phil Soper did with the Canadian media to discuss the Canadian Real Estate market and the outlook for 2008.

2007 was a record-breaker for the Canadian Real Estate market. The big stories were price out west and volume in central and eastern Canada. We knew prices would continue to appreciate in the west but the pace of appreciation particularly in the first part of the year really defied all expectations; and in Ontario and Quebec we saw the number of homes trading hands really spike up in the second half of the year; very, very strong year for real estate. Toronto area displayed high levels of home buying activity in the fourth quarter, despite the city’s rising house prices, partly related to the introduction of a new Toronto Land Transfer Tax.

Single-detached average price in excess of $500,000

in close to half Toronto Real Estate Board's MLS districts! Unprecedented demand for single-detached homes along the Yonge Street corridor prompted double-digit price increases in the GTA's top performing neighbourhoods in the first six months of 2007, finds new Re/Max report. "To date, 51 per cent of districts reported double-digit sales gains for detached homes and 44 per cent for condominiums. It's been another banner year for real estate, and it's far from over" says Michael Polzler.

Detached Houses

Demand is particularly evident in the central core - from Bloor St. north to Highway 7 - where average price ranges from $565,000 to well over a million. In fact, nearly 60 per cent of 'C' districts reported double-digit increases in unit sales for the first half of the year." Last year at this time, appreciation had slowed in the central core as the average price approached $830,000. Buyers were investigating more affordable alternatives east, north, and west of the city centre. This year, despite an average closer to $875,000, demand for properties is at an all-time high in the district and a limited supply of product has purchasers vying for homeownership. In June, four central districts (C02, C10, C11 and C15) reported a sales-to-listings ratio above 100 per cent. Multiple offers remain commonplace on quality, well-priced product, with detached homes selling for 100 per cent of list price or more in all but one central district in June.

Top five Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) Districts by Average Price Appreciation are:

Video Clip from Peggy's Stage Your Home for Profit DVD Through years of experience helping people buy and sell their homes, Peggy Selinger-Eaton, author of Stage Your Home for Profit, developed seven major staging principles. These principles make one house sell immediately while the same home down the road stays on the market for months. Following these principles means your home is professionally packaged and presented, while creating maximum appeal and interest:

  1. Make a great first impression
  2. Maximize space and eliminate clutter
  3. Use light for an open, spacious feeling
  4. De-emphasize flaws

Helping You Is What We Do. Royal LePage Real Estate Services has just released our preliminary Q2 2007 report which highlights house price trends for the three most common types of housing in Canada in 80 communities across the country!

The most profound story in Canadian real estate today is the extraordinary interest that people across our country continue to have in buying and selling homes. The sheer number of homes trading hands this year has far exceeded consensus expectation. This market continues to show strength as we move into the second half of the year.

said Phil Soper, our President and CEO.

Toronto's Resale Housing Market

Experienced a strong second quarter, characterized by record-breaking activity and rising average house prices. Toronto's better than expected second quarter was defined by intense demand that was only barely met by inventory levels. Multiple offer situations occurred frequently on detached homes, resulting in decreased average listing periods from this time last year.
