Welcome to our April 2015 e-Newsletter!        

It's no secret that Toronto's condos are getting smaller - I also have a piece with some insight into how designers are making small spaces functional.

Cavalia's got a new show called Odysseo, which looks like quite a spectacular. You'll find more information below, along with a link to the city's best Fish and Chips.

I recently read a piece in the Wall Street Journal about Canada's housing market, which I have linked to below. It's an interesting overview on what's happening and also provides some good reasons why Toronto's market isn't softening like other markets.

Along with more local market news from the Toronto Real Estate Board, you'll find five terrific listings, which include a townhouse at Yonge and St. Clair, a two bedroom suite at Radio City and three properties for lease.

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

Cavalia's Odysseo: April 8-May 10 

   

Cavalia has brought a new show to Toronto! According to the site, Odysseo is an ode to horse and man that marries the equestrian arts, awe inspiring acrobatics and high-tech theatrical effects. The production includes more than 70 horses, a 1,393 square meter stage features, a real carousel and a magically appearing 302,000-litre lake in front of a stunning video backdrop the size of three IMAX screens.

Kitchen inches: Designers find ways to carve out better spaces in small city condos

 

Condo units are getting smaller and smaller. So, needless to say, condo kitchens are getting smaller, too.

But are there ways to make a postage-stamp kitchen an efficient and comfortable space? And how can you decide if that kitchen will fit your needs, if all you have to go on is a floor plan, a glossy brochure and maybe a model suite?

Toronto Housing Market May Not Join in Soft Landing

   

Canada's high-flying housing market finally seems to be making a landing that will be harder in some areas-notably the oil-producing provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan-than elsewhere, according to BMO Capital Markets.

Except for Vancouver and Toronto. The latter in particular has a flight plan that doesn't include landing anytime soon, BMO says.
