Tags: Homes in Toronto, spring clean, maintenance, checklist

We get it. People are busy. House maintenance takes time. However, people undertake spring cleaning each year because it makes sense.

The Investment Rental Market - Are You Missing an Opportunity?

Tags: Homes in Toronto, invest, house prices, rent, executive rental, property

Tags: Homes in Toronto, House Prices, Hot market, Mortgage, rules, investment

Have you heard? House prices are down in Vancouver. The new tax on foreign buyers and rising prices that even the very wealthy can’t afford are having an effect.
