Welcome to our July 2014 e-Newsletter!        

June was another busy month for the Toronto housing market - sales were up 15% over June 2013 and the average selling price was $568,953. A link to the full market news is below.

We all have our favourite neighbourhood patios - sometimes the challenge is keeping them from becoming too popular. Well, Toronto Life aims to burst that bubble - below is a link to their article on 10 patios from Parkdale to Leslieville you may not know about.

Curious about what the most expensive home in Canada looks like? Interestingly enough, it's not in Toronto! Scroll down for that link, plus information about summer tours from Heritage Toronto and two beer festivals happening this month.

As always, I thank you for your past and future business and any referrals you may have are greatly appreciated.


Patio Guide 2014: 10 spots the locals don't want you to discover


This year's guide is devoted to a less ostentatious breed of outdoor drinking venue-places every local knows and loves, but that don't have the kind of flashy features (a retractable roof, say, or a giant hexagonal pool) that would necessarily catapult them onto a top-10 list. So, in no particular order, here they are: 10 patios you should probably know about-but that the locals would prefer to keep to themselves.

Most Expensive Home for Sale in Canada Listed at $38M


What does true Canadian luxury look like? It looks like a serene cabin escape on acres upon acres of valuable land. It looks like a rustic meets opulent mansion with Rocky Mountain views. It looks like a lakefront property with horses and barnyards and clusters of evergreens. True Canadian luxury looks like Kettle Lake Ranch, an estate in Calgary, Alberta once owned by the famous Ford family of Henry Ford heritage. Take a peek inside the palatial property that's currently on the market for $38M.

Market News


Stepping into his role as President of the Toronto Real Estate Board, Paul Etherington announced a strong increase in residential sales reported through the TorontoMLS system in June.  Sales were up by 15.4 per cent year-over-year to 10,180 transactions.  New listings were also up compared to the same period in 2013, but by a lesser annual rate.  This means that competition between buyers increased in June.
