Tuesday Quotation / 星期二聯想 - 2016.08.30

After spending a few days out of town with the family, we are back to work.  We are back to work at full stream because we share the same belief as Augustine Og Mandino II , author of “The Greatest Salesman in the World”.

“Always do your best.  What you plant now, you will harvest later.” ~ Og Mandino

Work hard and no effort will go in vain.

和家人出埠幾天假期後, 馬上重回工作崗位, 打理照顧客戶物業上的需求。  我們認同「世界上最偉大推銷員」作者 Augustine Og Mandino II 的信念:-

“要做到最好。你今天的耕耘, 是他朝的收穫。”

正如我們從兒時就學習「種瓜得瓜, 種豆得豆」的道理。 今天 #星期二聯想 互相勉勵, 大家努力加油!

Tuesday Quotation / 星期二聯想 - 2016.08.23

During our short break in New England area, we drove to Cape Cod.  It was very scenic and pleasant this time of the year.  This reminded me the saying "Journey is the reward.". For this #TuesdayQuote, found :- 

"Life is just a Journey." ~ Princess Diana

In life, we move from one place to another, go from one stage to the next, reach from one target to yet another one.  Enjoy the journey!

在美國東北部新英格蘭渡幾天暑假時,開車到 Cape Cod (鱈魚角)遊覧。配合這季節天氣,沿途風光秀麗,感覺舒暢自在,想起「旅程就是奬賞」這說法。

今天 #星期二聯想 找到 王妃戴安娜曾說:「人生就是一個旅程」


同意。我們人生從一個地方去另一個地方;從一個階段成長至下一個階段;從追求一個目標到別一個目標。人生就正如一個旅程。好好享受,旅途愉快!

Tuesday Quotation / 星期二聯想 - 2016.08.16

Over our #SummerFunWeekend #OpenHouse, we are pleased to meet many from #Markham, #RichmondHill and #Toronto.  Some plan for  their first home purchase, some want to move closer to highway network, some intend to downsize and other plan to invest for themselves or family.  Regardless their background, they all recognize the importance of home ownership. We have picked this #TuesdayQuote:-

在剛過「夏天同歡開放日」週末, 很高興有機會接觸很多 #萬錦市/ #烈治文山 / #多倫多 的朋友。 有些是首次置業年青夫婦、有些打算遷往近公路較方便地段、有些子女長大打算搬至比較小和意打理居所、亦有些計劃添置物業給兒女或作投資等等。  姑勿論他們的膚色和背景, 大家都認定擁有一個安居樂業的家是非常重要。  

今天 #星期二聯想 引句是 Dr. Maya Angelou: [我們每一個心底裏都渴望有一個家: 一個安全, 一個不需做作, 也不被質疑, 完全接受我們的地方。]

Toronto Area Home Resale Market - July 2016

"... the best result on record of the month of July."

"... listings for single-detached and semi-detached houses and townhouses continue to be in short supply..."

"... As long as very strong buying intentions are up against an extreme shortage of listings, expect home price growth to greatly outpace the rate of inflation..."

Above are the quotes from Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) July 2016 report that stood out and captured the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) home resale market sentiment.




Additional top line key points:-

> The average selling price of a GTA increased from $608,875 in July 2015 to $709,825 this July representing an increase of 16.6%.

> July GTA average selling prices for a single-detached, semi-detached, townhouse and condo were $953k, $668k, $536k and $407k, respectively.

> Properties available for resale was 30% less than July 2015.

> Condo apartments resales grew more than 10% in volume year-to-year.

> Single-detached and semi-detached house selling prices increased 21% and 17% in 12 months.

If you are thinking of taking advantage of buying demand to sell your properties, contact us to gain further insight of your local market. 



“… 歷來最好成績的七月。

“… 獨立屋丶半獨立屋丶鎮屋供應持續短缺...”

“… 配合強烈購買意欲和極缺乏待售樓盤, 預料樓價上升幅度遠超過通貨膨脹...”

以上幾句摘抄於七月份 TREB 大多倫多地產市場行情報告 (Market Watch) 充分捕捉到現時市場氣氛。

其他市場走勢要點:

> 平均銷售價格從去年七月的 60萬9升至 今年71, 升幅為16.6%

Tuesday Quotation / 星期二聯想 - 2016.08.09

It has been a busy August, thankfully.  To #motivate ourselves and others who are working hard through the summer months, share a #quotation here:- 


“Apply yourself both now and in the next life.  Without effort, you cannot be prosperous.  Though the land be good, You cannot have an abundant crop without cultivation.”  ~ Plato   #TuesdayQuote

跟往年八月比, 今年較為繁忙, 感恩為鼓勵大家和其他在暑假中不停努力的朋友, 今日 #星期二聯想 分享有名哲學家 #柏拉圖 曾說: 「盡力, 不管今生或是來世。  不用功, 不可能會富足。  就算有肥沃土壤, 沒有播種耕耘, 休想得到豐收。」

深信 - 多勞多得, 努力!

Weekend Open House / 週末開放日 - 2016.08.07-08

The first weekend in August.  With Vancouver effected additional 15% home purchase tax for foreigner purchasers, #GreaterTorontoArea #realestate may have even more potential buyers.  As such, we will host 3 Open House in #Markham this weekend, August 6th-7th.


(click for Google Maps)

22 Betty Roman Boulevard, Cathedraltown   2:30-4:30pm
387 Bur Oak Avenue, Berczy                         2:00-4:00pm
377 Roy Rainey Avenue, Wismer                   2:00-4:00pm

本週, #BC省 剛實施向購買 #溫哥華 房屋的外國買家徵收額外15% #稅項。 不少人相信, 這可能增加 #大多倫多 樓房 #地產 的需求。  有見及此, 本週末, 我們準備了三個在 #萬錦市 的 #開放日。

387 Bur Oak Avenue, Berczy, Markham


* SOLD * #TREB July data was released.  A #GreaterTorontoArea #home was sold at the average price of $709,825 (including both high-rise and low-rise).  

The price is evidently rising upward.  You could still find value property., like our newly listed 387 #BurOakAve in #Berczy, #Markham (MLS# 3572157).

This 3 bedroom 3 bathroom two storey #townhome is located in a sough-after, developed and convenient community.  Modern layout and finished: professionally finished basement, hardwood floor throughout, granite kitchen and bathroom.  Great school networks including #Stonebridge PS and #PierreElliottTrudeau HS being home schools. 

What else?  Very reasonably priced!  Asking only $599,000.  

#TREB 剛宣布七月份 #大多倫多 樓房地產數字, 住宅平均銷售價為 71萬。

無可置疑, 大多樓價不斷穩步上揚。   若果懂得挑選, 市場上仍然有一些「價值正盤」。就像我們剛推出在 萬錦市, 「搶手」#Berczy 區的 387 Bur Oak Ave (MLS# 3572157) : 雙層3房3衛鎮屋, 時尚優雅設計, 全屋實木地板, 專業完全土庫,大理石廚房和浴室。名校 Stonebridge PS 和 Pierre Elliott Trudeau HS區, 近商塲, 交通方便。 只叫 $599,000。 
[名校旺區, 潛力豐盛, 超值上車盤。]

22 Betty Roman Boulevard, Cathedraltown, Markham

* SOLD *  If you have been with us, you would definitely know that we always have great admiration for Cathedraltown.  

Imagine...  on your rooftop terrace, you could view and be inspired by the impressive Cathedral of Transfiguration and rejuvenated by greeneries and creek of the park right across the street and living 5 minute away from Highway 404 Elgin Mills exit.  Wouldn't life be splendid?


YES, it would definitely be.  We are very pleased to announce: 22 Betty Roman Boulevard will be listing soon - an opportunity not to miss.  

Connect with us for first hand information.




認識我們的朋友都清楚知道, 我們極度鍾情萬錦大教堂鎮.

若果, 可以在天台: 欣賞並感受到大教堂的壯麗、沉入於前面綠油油的樹木花草和清溪、以及同時享受到住近 404 公路出口的省時方便... 生活實在太美啦!

這絕不只是夢想, 是可以實現的!   榮幸地宣佈: 22 Betty Roman Boulevard 掛牌出售。

Happy Monday / 開心星期一 @ Cachet, Markham - 2016.08.01

Happy Civil Holiday here in Ontario!


One more reason to rejoice, we managed to sell - just before the long weekend - our Cachet client's detached house at 111% of the asking price with the desired terms and schedule.  She is now very relaxed and yet excited to prepare for her next move.  This brought us smiles and pride.  We are happy and honoured to be of assistance.





#開心星期一 : 可以多一點休養生息的時間當然叫人高興,但更令我們更興奮的是可以幫我們在 #萬錦 #Cachet 中東藉客戶在長周末前,按她要求的條件和時間表, 以 #超叫價 (111%) 售出 #獨立屋。見她放心、從容、自在; 我們歡喜不已。在此, 再一次多謝這客戶的信任和支持。
