Note: we’ve posted this one before yet we feel it is so important that we thought we run it again. Your comments and thoughts are welcome!
“Remember when homes at Yonge and Sheppard were selling for less than $200,000? I should have bought 3 of them.”
Oh how we wish we had purchased more real estate when we were younger. Before we had kids and we were able to live with more flexibility; we could bring in room mates, purchase a home with a friend or colleague, or rent out a basement to help pay the mortgage.
It’s a shame that ‘accumulated interest’ and ‘Real Estate Investment’ isn’t taught in any practical applied context right from middle school! Business, Investment and Money Management should be a mandetory class in High Schools everywhere.
Back in 1984 I was working in a Veterinarin Clinic earning about $17,000 per year and paying $475/month for rent. One of the other assistants had a goal of purchasing Real Estate before she was 21 years old. Three of us decided to pitch in and purchase a home. We called a Realtor and went and looked at a skinny detached home on Carlaw Avenue just off the Danforth. The home was listed for $97,000.00 Read the rest of this entry »
Many who drive through the Central North York area between Sheppard and Finch along the Yonge Corrider on a regular basis are getting excited about the progress of Beecroft Rd. Designed to reduce traffic along Yonge St. and the smaller private streets, Beecroft should be a huge relief during rush hour!
Changes to the neighbourhood are happening rapidly.
- New Condos
- New Homes
- New School Boundaries
- New Roads

Always wondered what ‘MLS District’ you live in? No need to wonder anymore!
As of July 5th, The Toronto Real Estate Board will officially drop all the odd titled districts (‘C07? ,‘No2?,E03 etc) and replace them with what they feel are ‘Neighbourhood Names’.
For example, the Toronto Real Estate Board district C07, which extends from the 401 all the way up to Steeles Avenue on the West side of Yonge St to Bathurst, will now be comprised of four (4) searchable communities;
- Willowdale West
- Newtonbrook West
You might not recognize the name of your own community but according to the City of Toronto, these are our neighbourhoods! There are a few surprising changes. For example, the ‘Lansing Westgate’ community appears to have removed the ‘Armour Heights’ name completely and joined two communities that are naturally divided by the West Don Ravine system.
The East side of Yonge in central North York which was referred to previously as C14 is now;
- Willowdale East
- Newtonbrook East
Check out the map and make note of the changes for your future home searches. Agents have always marketed communities but the public has grown increasingly accustomed to the Real Estate Board’s coded district names. This, like all changes, will take some getting used to.

In March 2011, 9,262 transactions were reported through the TorontoMLS® system. This represented the 2nd best March on record – the number of transactions was still 11 per cent lower than the record result reported in March of 2010.
The average selling price for March 2011 was up five per cent from March 2010, to $456,147.
The strongest average annual price growth was reported for condominium apartments and semi-detached houses, at approximately seven per cent for both home types.
Of course these numbers differ from area to area. In the 905 areas, the sales of condos make up less than 27% of the total sales. In the 416 area, condos make up over 46% of the total sales!
Some other interesting sales information breaks down what is selling in our Central North York neighbourhoods.
For example, there were 40 sales of detached compared to 85 Condo apartment sales in C07(401 to Steeles – From Yonge to Bathurst).
There were 49 sales or detached homes in C14 and 128 Condo sales in C14(East of Yonge to Bayview). Read the rest of this entry »
