Tips on Choosing Homes

A few days ago, Ming Pao Saturday Supplement had a very informative cover stories:  "樓價今年不跌反升" ("Home Price Not Falling, Faltering but Rising") and "專家教你揀樓買" ("Experts' Choices of Homes").  The author of the articles is Jacqueline So (who wrote this and this).

Jacqueline has done a great job in capturing the views of key real estate market authorities.  Then she presented realtors' practical tips for choosing homes with potential and resilience under the current condition.  Home buyers, future home buyers and others could gain some insight into current GTA property market. (Here is a scanned version for those who missed to grab a Ming Pao on Saturday).

Live & Prosper in Wismer at 101 Chokecherry Cres, Markham

* SOLD *  In 1st quarter, Greater Toronto Area real estate market outperformed Q1 of 2011.  TREB reported the average home sale price has risen 10% from $456,234 to $501,614 (March) in 12 months.  While transactions and price increased, new listings have not grown as much.  Thus, demands outweigh supplies, especially in hot neighbourhood, such as Wismer, where homes are listed and sold rather quickly.

Our featured home - 101 Chokecherry Cres - is an almost new, contemporary and comfortable 2 bedroom townhome near the intersection of 16th Ave and McCowan.  That means easy access to transit, shopping, dinning, parks and quality schools.  It makes a great home for young family.

For details, please refer to the MLS # ... or book a showing now to seize this opportunity.
