Welcome to my March email!

I know we are all eagerly anticipating spring and everything the warmer weather will bring such as CafeTO patios, parks and sunshine. In the meantime, the city has moved into the grey zone as of Monday.

If you're looking for a distraction, below you'll find a link to my events blog for March, the city's best Grilled Cheese sandwiches (all of which can be delivered) and a fun piece from HGTV in which Scott McGillivray shares his picks for the worst design trends of the past decade.

Toronto's real estate market continues to set records. Sales were up in every sector, with condo sales up by 63.2% compared to last February and semi-detached sales up by 64.8%. Clearly, there is confidence in the market!

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

Scott McGillivray Ranks the Worst Home Design Trends of the Last 10 Years
From bare white walls and Edison bulbs to ultra-modern furniture and small yards, these home design crazes are hopefully a thing of the past. Some people will agree and others surely won’t, but in Scott McGillivray's opinion, these are the worst home trends of the last decade.
The Best Grilled Cheese Sandwich in Toronto
There’s nothing better than sinking your teeth into an ooey-gooey grilled cheese sandwich. Although a grilled cheese may be considered a simple dish and relatively easy to make, these places are taking this ultimate comfort food to a whole new level by adding other ingredients like walnuts, jerk chicken and even Nutella.
Toronto Real Estate Market Update: March 2021
Picture it. Toronto. October 2020. The condo market is stagnant. Nothing is selling. Listings are up for months on end, price reductions mean nothing. Sellers take their properties off the market rather than have them linger. Fast forward two short months: January and February 2020. There seems to be a pent-up demand that is driving a lot of activity in the market and generating a sense of urgency among buyers. Even smaller condos that were unsellable in the fall seem to be moving again.

Toronto Real Estate Board Market News
Record home sales in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) continued in February as buyers remained confident in their employment situations and took advantage of ultra-low borrowing costs. With multiple buyers continuing to compete for many available listings, double-digit annual price growth was the norm throughout the GTA, with stronger rates of growth in the suburbs surrounding the City of Toronto.
