Have you had a chance to visit a patio yet? Check out the list below of the city's best new patios taking advantage of the CaféTO program! It would be great if this initiative sticks around! More on that below, along with some news about changes coming to The Bentway (who knew so much could happen under the Gardiner?) and the city's best July events.

As for the market, the sales numbers released by TRREB aren't quite as dramatic as they have been the past few months, but the average price of a detached home in Toronto is now $1,699,881, up over 29% from June 2020. The numbers don't tell the whole story, though. Check out my latest blog for my take on 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!

Second Phase of Bentway Moving Forward with Revised Design
The Bentway seeks to transform a previously uninhabited 1.75km-long space beneath the elevated Gardiner Expressway into a new linear public park. The second phase of the Bentway includes a feature bridge as a way to coherently connect both sides of the park both visually and physically, while providing more programmable spaces and a safer crossing for all users.

If You Love Travel and Real Estate Porn, You’ll Love The World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals on Netflix
Are hotels over? Probably not, but the new Netflix show The World's Most Amazing Vacation Rentals certainly makes the case for staying in private homes instead. Part home design show, part travelogue, the eight-episode series follows three hosts as they stay in a total of 24 dwellings around the world, each with something different to offer.

Toronto Real Estate Board Market News
June home sales were up compared to last year, but remained below the March 2021 peak and were lower than the number of transactions reported for May 2021, consistent with the regular seasonal trend. The average selling price in June increased by double digits compared to last year as well, but the annual rate of increase moderated compared to the previous three months.
