Entertainment District Condo ~500 s.f.   1🛏   1🛁 
Home resales subdued after the introduction of Ontario Fair Housing Plan.  The least impacted market segment was "Condo Apartment", especially in 416 area.  One of the obvious reasons is perhaps people continues to move to Toronto, one of the world metropolitan cities, for work, study and opportunities.

If you are searching for a residence in the heart of the city, 101 Peter Street #1605 in the Entertainment District could well be it!  This CentrePoint Development built Peter Street Condo is merely steps away from Bay Street, Metro Convention Centre, Subway, Roy Thomson Hall, Royal Alexandra Theatre, TIFF Bell Lightbox, Roger Centre...

隨安省推中減熱樓市新措施, 整體市場大幅度交投回落, 但屋苑公寓市場 (特別是市中心) 所受的影響最小。其中一個主要因素是多倫多這大都會不斷吸引大量人口前來工作、升學、尋找機會。

Happy Monday / 開心星期一 @ Berczy, Markham - 2017.07.17

TREB's June Market Watch indicated that many buyers and seller have been standing on the sidelines watching the market adjusting to the new government policies.  As such, transactions last month was only 2/3 of June 2016 level.  Having said that, housing is a fundamental need, some buyers have to buy home to meet their family requirements.

據多倫多地產商會6月市場報告顯示,許多買家和賣家從旁觀察市場對安省政府新樓房政策的調整反應, 因而上月的交易只有2016年6月的三分二。 話雖如此,「住」是一個基本需要,有人必須找一個合宜的家來滿足一家大細的所需。

CONGRATULATIONS to our Berczy seller clients!  With patience, persistence and the right pricing, it could be done!

恭喜我們Berczy賣家客戶成功在這調整時期亦可以好價售出物業! 證實只要有耐心,堅持和適當的市場策略,一定可以 SOLD!

"Location. Location. Location."  It is a golden rule in real estate investment.   

What are good locations?  There seems to be very few "hard and fast" rules in picking high potential properties... except... proximity to TTC Subway station.

On today Ming Pao Property Goldpage, we wrote an article "北約克市中心 地鐵沿線 城市鎮屋, 生活多姿" (Vibrant Townhome Living along North York Centre Subway Line) about the vibrant lifestyle of North York city centre - the stripe of Yonge Street between Sheppard Avenue and Finch Avenue.  We also showed an example of property with high potential (#18 - 70 Byng Avenue).   The come text is attached below.

"Location. Location. Location." 投資地產物業的金句。但可謂好 Location?  簡單易懂的準則確實不多... 除了, "投資地鐵站旁,永遠不用慌"。

在今期明報地產金頁, 我們撰寫 "北約克市中心 地鐵沿線 城市鎮屋, 生活多姿" 一文。內容談及北約克市的精彩生活模式, 並以 70 Byng Ave #18 鎮屋為一個具投資潛素的例子。

自1998年起, 北約克(North York)成為多倫多大都會的一部份。 

北約克中心通常是指從401公路經 Sheppard Avenue 至 Finch Avenue 夾央街(Yonge Street)走廊一帶。 北約克的城市口號是”The City with Heart”, 即是「有心之城」。由於圍繞著地鐵沿線範圍, 集結成多倫多市北部的市政、商業、零售、文化藝術和娛樂活動要塞。 加上Finch地鐵站目前是最北總站,來往約克地區(York Region)/多倫多的人流在這區交滙,人氣特別旺盛。

Mel Lastman 廣場 / 北約克公民中心 (North York Civic Centre) 是北約克的核心,  地區內公眾活動如農夫市場、戶外演唱會、冬天的室外溜冰場…等等都在此舉行。  旁邊臨立的包括市政大樓、商業辦公室、多倫多市學校局。 另外, Empress Walk 商場和 North York Centre Malls 是購物消遣的好地方。 在 Sheppard 和 Finch 地鐵站之間的一段央街可以稱為「食街」, 遍布琳瑯滿目的食肆、各式地道風味餐廳和茶座酒廊, 數不勝數, 熱鬧非常至深宵。

這裏也是文化中心, Toronto Centre for the Arts、North York Central Library、 Gibson House Museum、 Claude Watson School for the Arts 與及 Cardinal Carter Academy for the Arts 都選址區內。

離繁華方便的央街兩條街 (數分鐘步行), 就是我們介紹低密度、寧靜舒適、兩層高、面積約1300多呎 Byng Avenue 鎮屋。  單位包括2個大套房,3間衛生室,  尤其適合小家庭或同事同學共住。 

主層9呎天花,主人套房13呎樓底,多窗再加天窗, 明亮開揚。 實用開放式間格, 全屋木地板, 可以靈活鋪排配合所需。 2個露台可觀附近林木和都市遠景。 另外, 此屋具備雙車位及特大存物室, 在北約克旺地, 實屬稀有。

在北約克市中心, 近地鐵站黃金地段, 可以生活於低層住所, 並可在室內擁有兩個車位, 是一個不可多得的自住或投資良機。
