Tuesday Quotation / 星期二聯想 - 2016.10.18

Being a #RealEstate professional actually takes more than many think.  Just to name a few:-

1) you are running your own business with ongoing expense and no regular pay cheques;
2) you are your own boss, you need to be self-motivated because nobody but yourself are responsible for the success and also the failure; 
3) the hours could be long and irregular depending on the tasks at hand.

To be a good realtor, it begins with a lot of commitment.  You need to love the job.  #TuesdayQuote shares Oprah Winfrey's thought:-

其實身為一個 #物業代理, 不是一般人想像中那麼容易的工作,原因包括:-

1. 這是自己的生意,不斷要付出運作開支, 而沒有定時的收入;
2. 自己當老闆,一切必定要自發、自主。因為, 沒有其他人需要為你的成就或挫折負責;
3. 工作沒有固定時間、工作天可能會很長,一切都隨着當時手上任務已定。

所以,要作一個稱職的地產經紀,要有一定的承擔,要熱愛這一份職業。今天 #星期二聯想 分享美國名人 #奧花雲費 之工作觀念:

「我認知的 - 若果你做的工作是你愛做的,而這工作亦充實你的生活;那麼,其餘的不用擔心,一切都會隨其自然地發生。」

Happy Monday / 開心星期一 @ Greensborough, Markham - 2016.10.17

Although it was cloudy and rainy, the turnout at our Cathedraltown Open House was encouraging.  Special thanks to our neighbourhood friends (some were previous clients) visiting - bringing us warmth even on a somewhat chilly damp day.

Similarly, we feel at home in the Wismer/Greensborough communities.  Especially, this #HappyMonday, we are cheering for 2 client families achieving their goals - selling their properties at #SoldOverAsking price this month.  We deeply appreciate your trust and opportunities.

When clients are happy, we realtors are pleased, too.

雖然周末天氣密雲微雨, 但 #大教堂鎮 #開放日 反應良好。 特別鳴謝附近友好 ( 其中一些是先前客戶 ) 蒞臨打氣, 令一個原本天暗暗雨綿綿的日子, 也覺得有陽光溫暖。

同樣地, #萬錦 Wismer / Greensborough 社區 也給我們感到自然舒服的感覺, 尤其是這個 #開心星期一。  恭喜兩家賣家客戶達成目標, 在本月 以 #超叫價賣出 物業。  再次. 感激他們給予的機會和無限的信任。 

當客人滿意, 我們 #物業代理 亦感到恩慰。

Real Estate Agent Team Ad - Week 3, Oct. 2016

We discussed the fundamental reason behind the strong GTA housing demand.  The recent TREB  Market Watch indicated that there are limited supply (active listings were less than 2/3 of September 2015).  The team has been working diligently with our sellers to bring some quality homes to the market.

Here is our Chinese media advertising this cycle.  Some of these homes are about to be listed.  If interested, contact us immediately.

( Featured Listings: 2016.10.w3 )

先前和大家探討大多倫多房屋需求的基本因素, 而據多倫多地產商會九月份MLS顯示待售盤數量低於去年同期三分之二, 供不應求情況持續。  有見及此, 我隊努力發掘優質樓盤以供選購。 以上是我們今期在星島和明報的廣告, 如有興趣購買這些以及其他樓房屋苑, 請馬上跟我們聯絡

Toronto Area Home Resale Market - September 2016

Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) reported that there were 9,902 re-sales in September 2016, 21.5% more than Sep. 2015.  The average selling price over all home types and all regions was $755,755, increased 20.4% from $627,867 in Sep. 2015.  TREB President's description of the market:-

“We continued to see strong demand for ownership housing up against a short supply of listings in the Greater Toronto Area in September. The sustained lack of inventory in many neighbourhoods across the GTA continued to underpin high rates of price growth for all home types.” 

Note a few top-line year over year comparison:-

  • Number of detached homes re-sale in 905 area grew 29%
  • Average selling price of detached increased by 24%
  • Condo sales growth continued in both '416' and '905' areas, 24% and 32%, respectively
  • There was 5.6% drop in new listing comparing Sep. of 2016 vs 2015
  • The active listing was at 11,255 in Sep., only 63% of last Sep. 's 17,765 level

多倫多地產商會 九月份錄得 9902 宗交易, 較去年同期數量增長 21.5% 全大多, 包括所有房屋種類 平均銷售價從去年$62萬8 上升至為 $75萬6, 一年脹20.4%。

TREB表示市場購買意欲仍然強勁, 但賣盤供應有限, 故此相信樓價有上升空間。

  • 905地區獨立屋買賣上升 29%
  • 獨立屋平均價升24%
  • 屋苑交投量在416地區+24%, 在905地區+32%
  • 新掛牌銷售樓盤少5.6%
  • 11,255 活躍賣盤, 去年同期之63%

As we have completed 3 quarters of 2016, a quick read into the GTA home re-sale market of these 9 months:-

  • Nearly 90,000 (89,660) re-sales in 9 months with about $65 billion sales volume / 9個月錄得89,660重售交易
  • 9 month TREB average selling price across all regions, all home types was $721,750 / 9個月跨區、跨屋種平均售價是 $72萬2
