5853 Gainsborough Place

I'm quite a fan of this complex.  Nestled about as far North as you can go before being in the Bedford Basin, these units offer lots of space for a reasonable price.  A quick jaunt off the Peninsula is attractive while some offer views of the water.  You'll also find underground parking and three different outdoor spaces for each unit.  The condo fees are a little high but that is the reality when buying in an older building.  Like an older house, it'll need renovations and the condo fee is your forced savings…

The first few months of 2019 have been busy. Single family residential sales increased year-over-year by a substantial 25% while months of inventory sits at a lowly 2.64. ­ This means if nothing else were listed, it would take 2.64 months for everything to sell. Anything below three months is considered a seller’s market where prices trend upwards. ­The average sale price increased by 2.8% to $562,600 while the amount of time it takes to sell a home dropped from 51 days to 44.

Multiple O­ffers

This is a scenario becoming far more common as competition heats up on the Peninsula. You need to be fully utilizing your REALTOR®; ask to receive automatic notifications when homes that fit your criteria are listed. ­ The best properties are selling in hours…

6987 Vaughn Ave

Cute as a button.  This is the perfect way to get on the property ladder if a condo doesn't float your boat.  This little home is clean, well looked after and offers some outdoor space as well.  It is by no means huge, but offers the opportunity to stop renting and start owning for a similar monthly investment. 

Pros:  Get on that property ladder!
Cons: A little tight, but how much space do you really need?

1185 Beaufort Ave

This house is nestled in the South End, with views of the trees across the road.  Beaufort…

1660/62 Robie Street

Old world character with a ton of important renovations including plumbing, electrical, windows and roofing.  The interior has some cosmetic updates while maintaining its charm, including a newer kitchen, refinished floors and electric fireplace.  Upstairs you'll find 3 spacious bedrooms and renovated full bath.  The basement offers a separate entrance, in-floor heat and a kitchenette.   Three car parking with rear alley access and a large backyard complete the package. 

Pros:  Spacious, character filled, revenue potential. 
Cons: Busy road at certain…

704-5959 Spring Garden Road (sold)

A newer condo can fetch upwards of $400,000, so why not look at an option that has been renovated instead.  Substantially…

The number of conditional sales is down this week but that is likely due to a lack of available product. We have a number of buyers waiting for the right home to pop up and you can be sure that when it does, it’ll sell quickly - much like the majority of our HaliPad Picks!  Cutting through some of the clutter this week, we have selected three homes that stand out.

14 Four Mile Lane (sold)

This is likely to fly off the market.  A semi-detached home of this age and condition, coupled with its relatively close location to the Peninsula make it a hot commodity.  The beautiful kitchen features granite counters, a tile backsplash and stainless steel appliances while you also benefit from the comfort of a central ducted heat pump. The home also backs onto…

Thankfully, I have more to talk about after the bore that was last week. Listing activity picked up quite significantly.  Perhaps all the Valentine’s love in the air caused people to think about their nests.  Here are our HaliPad picks for the week.  Interested in viewing some of these hot properties?  We’re available to show them to you this weekend!

(You'll find links to the listings we talk about at the bottom of the page). 

104-5677 Harris Street (sold)

The last time I featured a unit in this building, it sold in two days for 99.3% of list price.  This unit is priced $10,000 higher and I think that’s completely reasonable considering how quickly the previous listing in the building sold.  It will be interesting to see how long this one takes…
