What is your message?
David Pylyp (RE/MAX Realty Specialists Inc.,)

We can have a truly open and transparent system that has the consumer's confidence.

Not harboring secrets - which is really just a simpler, easier-to-execute conception of “transparency” - can be really powerful.  We have all heard the phrase The truth will set you free.

 

I am a Realtor with Re/max Specialists here in Toronto

I have been practicing real estate sales for over 25 years now.

I love what I do 

I enjoy providing real estate services to my clients because I feel that I provide them with much more than just buying and selling advice or real estate opinion.

I go well beyond that....

Being able to provide them with a common sense approach...

Its really important for me to maintain long term relationships with my clients.

We find that within our Accredited Senior Agent group we can draw on the skills and resources of many different people, expertise in Appraisal, Taxation, Donations of goods,  to much needed Financial and Retirement Income Planning.

This works very well for our Mature Clients.

I'm always looking for ways to improving what I do and offering that added service to my clients.

I feel the need to get the information to Home Owners and especially Boomers. There are so many issues with aging and clients not having the proper information.

The way I do this is through Social Media. So whether it is Video, through my website, through blogs, or thru Facebook and Twitter, 

I make sure, almost on a daily basis, I'm communicating with my audience.

Etobicoke Real Estate; Is really about dealing with people and their needs.

How will you enforce No Smoking in Rentals and Condos?
David Pylyp (RE/MAX Realty Specialists Inc.,)

You know its coming.... Legislated Smoking Behaviour.


The zeal for a NON smoking society.  What was a common and accepted event is now banned at work, restaurants, building entrances, outdoor patios and even soccer fields.   Now with new legislation they are proposing banning smoking in all condominium units and duplexes,  anything that shares a wall.

 

SAN RAFAEL, Calif., Oct 15 (Reuters) - A San Francisco suburb on Monday banned smoking in duplexes, condominiums and other multi-family homes, with city leaders saying they hoped to lead a wave of such regulations across California and ultimately the country.
The City Council in San Rafael, a community of 57,000 people about 15 miles (24 km) north of San Francisco, voted unanimously for the ban, following a handful of other California municipalities that have outlawed smoking in buildings with as few as two units.
"We are happy to blaze a trail," Mayor Gary Phillips said before the vote. "We're most happy to be in the forefront of the issue because we think it will greatly benefit our residents and those visiting San Rafael, and we think it will set the tone for other cities as well."
Tobacco-control experts predicted that the tough smoking ordinance in San Rafael could touch off a larger movement in other states and cities.
"The San Rafael ban is a very significant event because it will spread," said Robert Proctor, a Stanford University history of science professor. "We're on the downslope of a big curve. Smoking peaked in 1981 with 630 billion cigarettes sold in the United States. Now it's down to 350 billion. And that number will keep on going down until smoking is a distant memory."
San Rafael is the state's ninth municipality to completely restrict smoking in multi-unit housing, said Pam Granger, advocacy manager for the American Lung Association in California. Granger said California was the only state where local jurisdictions have banned smoking in homes.
The ordinance has generally been supported by residents who have spoken at city council meetings, although two smokers came out to oppose the ban on Monday evening.
"This proposed smoking ban actually intends to punish people for what they do in their own homes," Thomas Ruppenthal told the council. "I really feel this is tyranny."
The ordinance also would prohibit smoking on San Rafael's downtown streets - the backdrop for parts of the 1973 film "American Graffiti."
California municipalities have used the report to prohibit smoking in apartments and other multi-family homes. In some cases, the laws apply only to new construction or to just a percentage of a housing complex's units.
But the restrictions have become increasingly strict, and San Rafael's ordinance applies to all homes, new or existing and rented or owned, with shared walls. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/16/san-rafael-smoking-ban_n_1968990.html

 


All new or existing condominium units or residences with a shared wall, [takes in Townhouses and Semis] Knowing that we are approximately 6 months to a year behind the trends in California, How long will it be that we hear about this legislation in Toronto, Ontario?


Will Toronto Landlords be performing "sniff" testing on prospect tenants?

Will Condo buildings go SMOKE FREE?

Is a Smoker's Condo Evaluated at Less than market?  How much?


Have you say....

Toronto Home Sales off to a strong start in 2012
David Pylyp (RE/MAX Realty Specialists Inc.,)

 We are starting a New Year with Resolutions and Optimism! And an price increase of 8.5% averaged over last year.

 
The first real estate post that I notice is that "the eventual increase in interest rates will lead to a decline in home prices (probably in the magnitude of 10% - 15%)"
 
The ink was barely cold on the presses when the pundits were howling about interest rate increases. When the Bank of Canada announced only 3 days earlier.
 

 

TORONTO, January 17, 2012 – Greater Toronto REALTORS® reported 1,506 sales through the TorontoMLS® system during the first two weeks of January 2012. This result represented a six per cent increase compared to the first 14 days of January 2011. New listings were also up on a year-over-year basis, but by a lesser 3.7 per cent.


 

“The market didn’t miss a beat after the holiday season, with robust sales growth continuing and sellers’ market conditions remaining in place. Strong competition between buyers continued to push the average selling price higher in the Greater Toronto Area relative to a year ago,” said Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) President.


The average selling price during the first two weeks of 2012 was $444,473 – up by more than 8.5 per cent compared to the same period in 2011.


“Prices were up for most major home categories in the GTA in comparison to last year. The strongest price growth was for single-detached homes in the City of Toronto. The average price of singles in the 416 area code was up by 22 per cent year-over-year, pointing to a greater weighting of higher end detached homes changing hands compared to the same time last year,” said Jason Mercer, TREB’s Senior Manager of Market Analysis.

So here we are the start of a new sales year. Interest rates appear to be stable for the remainder of 2012. Inventory [available homes for sale] continue to be in short supply with the inevitable multiple offers when more than one buyer wants the same house.


Many of the pundits are talking about construction cranes and the inevitable lack of occupants for these newly constructed properties. Now lets add the one variable that no one is discussing;  The vacancy factor for Toronto rentals is very competitive. The Vacancy Rate appears to be around 1%. ONE percent. Rentals in high rise condo average $1,600 to $2,000 for a two bed two bath unit at Humber Bay Shore or Square One Mississauga


All of this may indeed be for only a limited time as demand may cause the rates to increase because of borrowing demand. Call now and let's beat the rush!
