Detached House - 2,800 sq.ft.,   4🛏   4🛁   2+2 🚗

Preview Open House: May 13rd, 14th 2:00-4:00 pm


A few weeks ago, we offered an opportunity to those who dream of owning a double-garage detached home in Markham but only at the Stouffville price.  Many showed interest.  The house was sold quickly.

Not to be disappointed, here we just listed 37 A.V. Nolan Drive. on northern border (19th Avenue) of Markham and a little east of Ninth Line.  



MLS® Number: N3801620 description: "Gorgeous Green Park Built House. Over 2800 Sqft. 4Bed And 4Bath 2 Ensuite. Lots Of Upgrades And Reno. 9Ft Ceiling. Bright And Spacious Layout. Hardwood Floor.

以今天的樓市, 在方便的地點(像萬錦市)擁有一間雙車房獨立屋, 是很多年青朋友的目標、心願。 所以, 早幾個星期, 當我們以史托維爾價錢發售一間在 19街夾 Ninth Line (即是萬錦市北邊邊界), 反應熱烈, 房子很快售出。

上次錯過的朋友, 不要氣餒。 我們剛剛推出, 在同一條街的 37 A. V. Nolan Drive, 趕快蒞臨我們開放日參觀。

優良環境 出色校網
Berczy社區成作育英才熱點

資料:恒生地產 Fanny Lee (fanny@fannylee.ca)

可能從小受「近朱者赤,近墨者黑」概念的薰陶, 為人父母者總會竭盡所能為子女創造最優良的生活和學習條件, 所以普遍比較重視孩子的教育, 關注社區的環境和附近學校的校風。  在大多倫多地區遇見華裔房屋買家, 在選購樓盤時往往會查詢有關學校資料。  我們亦碰上好幾個24孝父母像「孟母」般悉心安排居住優質名校區域, 作育孩子成材。

基於以上因素, 很容易理解為何萬錦市 Berczy社區房產尤其搶手。 舉例, 住在校網內的學童可進入下列幾間頂尖官立和天主教學校:- [官立] Castlemore小學 (安省2900中排行14), Pierre Elliott Trudeau中學並設法語課程 (安省740中排行第3), Unionville 中學的藝術課程 (安省740中排行20); [天主教] All Saints小學 (安省2900中排行269), St. Agustine中學(安省740中排行第6)。 

還有多間私立學校以供選擇, 例如: Unionville Montessori, Kennedy Montessori, People Christian Academy, J. Addison School, Angus Glen Montessori … 等等。

位於 Kennedy Avenue 夾 Major Mackenzie Drive 東南面, 大概2800呎Mattamy Homes建獨立屋, 有5個睡房, 四個衛生室, 雙車庫, 可泊四車, 間隔實用寬躺。 雙門入口直入17呎天花大堂, 得體大方。 

全屋室內翻新裝修: 新地板、新樓梯配鐵扶手、新髹牆油、全新高雅家庭聽、全新時尚廚房兼備服務間、新設現代燈飾, 恍如到了剛入伙新屋。

步行十分鐘距離內, 可抵銀行、商店、餐廳、數間上例名校; 隔一條街就是世界馳名 Angus Glen Golf Course 和 York Downs Golf Course Country Club; 約十分鐘車程內, 就分別可達 Toogood Pond、歷史於人村、Highway 7、Markville Mall, 應有盡有, 完全方便。

Tuesday Quotation / 星期二聯想 - 2017.05.09

The market dynamic started adjusting in March.  Then, Ontario Fair Housing Plan was introduced on April 20th.  There seems to be more uncertainty than resolution.  We have been seeing buyers and sellers sitting out to "wait-and-see."  Changes take time to digest.

We have selected a piece of wisdom from billionaire Warren Buffett as our #TuesdayQuote.  Hope this will enlighten.

“Look at market fluctuations as your friend rather than your enemy; profit from folly rather than participate in it.” ~ Warren Buffett



大多倫多地產市道自三月起開始調整。 四月20號, 安省公布樓市降溫措施。  市場動向好像沒有變得更清晰, 反而略添不明朗; 我們察覺很多買家和賣家暫時離場,「靜觀其變」,再作打算。

#星期二聯想 揀選了著名投資者畢菲特的一些提點。

"視市場波動為你的朋友, 不是你的敵人;  從市場的忙亂、慌張中圖利, 不要參與其中。"

Happy Monday / 開心星期一 @ Stouffville, Whitchurch-Stouffville - 2017.05.08

Stouffville (of Whitchurch-Stouffville) has been rapidly developing.  With its proximity to Markham and yet more affordable pricing, there are plenty of interests in Stouffville properties.  We have been representing sellers and buyers in the area for past few years.

This #HappyMonday, we like to congratulate our client family for selling their property at the record price of A.V. Nolan Drive, just a few weeks ago.  We could not have achieved this result without their support and timing.  Again, appreciate the opportunity and unwavering faith in us. #GettingThingsDone

這幾年, 在萬錦市北邊的 史托維爾 地區發展非常迅速, 地產買賣持續增長。  在這段期間, 我們都曾經代表過不少買家和賣家作物業交易。

這個 #開心星期一, 特地恭賀 A.V. Nolan 的賣方家庭, 不但 #超叫價賣出物業, 而且創出全街 #記錄最高價, 可喜可賀!  再次衷心感謝他們的充分合作和百分百信任。

"How vital real estate has become to Canada's economy!"

At 21:16, while we were driving home from a Etobicoke function, we received the a message from our Calgary cousins.  It was an article on the Financial Post of Calgary Herald titled: "Oil prices slump makes real estate Canada's crutch" with picture of of "SOLD" signs (at Victoria Square, Markham).

Yes, "how vital real estate has become to Canada's economy!"

We were debating if it was just a creative birthday prank from our fun-loving cousins.  After some intensive online searching, we verified that it was actually printed.  Here is the the Financial Post page thumbnail
The picture featuring 2 of our SOLD signs is attached below.  It was a totally unexpected birthday surprise, for sure!


今晚九時許,參加過小兒在 Etobicoke 的一個宴會後開車回家途中,在卡加里的堂弟 whatsapp 當地報紙經濟版中刊登有關地產對加拿大經濟的重要, 而採用的照片是攝於 萬錦大教堂鎮我們同時售出的2個物業前。

最初,我們估計是幽默的堂弟在生日跟我們開玩笑。當回家一輪網上查探後,證實文章是真確。這麼巧合!

這是真真正正是一個萬料不及的生日驚喜!感恩。🙏

Oil prices slump makes real estate Canada’s crutch
Some worry overreliance on housing can make economy vulnerable in slowdown
Calgary Herald 2 May 2017
ERIK HERTZBERG AND THEOPHILOS ARGITIS Bloomberg

Two things happened last week that were a reminder of just how vital real estate has become to Canada’s economy.
On Friday, Statistics Canada released gross domestic product data that showed February was a banner month for sectors linked to housing. The real estate industry, residential construction, financial and legal services generated a combined 0.5 per cent increase in output, the biggest one-month gain since 2014. Without those, the overall economy would have contracted slightly in February.
A day earlier, Ontario released a budget that projects land transfer taxes will surpass $3 billion in the current fiscal year, from $1.8 billion three years ago. For the province, it’s the difference between a balanced budget and a deficit.
Measures of housing’s contribution to the economy are imprecise, but estimates largely put the direct contribution in excess of 20 per cent. It’s much more than that once you add all the indirect effects, with benefits spread widely from lawyer fees to government revenue and increased retail purchases through so-called wealth effects as rising home equity values prompt households to ramp up consumption. The big worry is that Canada has moved from a reliance on oil to a reliance on real estate.
The influence of housing on the economy is so pervasive that it won’t take much of a slowdown to act as a major drag on the economy, said Mark Chandler, head of fixedincome research at RBC Capital Markets.
“You don’t need a collapse in house prices, you don’t need housing starts to be cut in half for weaker real estate sector to have a significant effect on GDP and incomes,” Chandler said. RBC’s ballpark estimate is that a 10-percent decline in national home prices would knock a full percentage point off growth.
A Toronto Dominion Bank report from 2015 found the housing wealth effect has been responsible for about one-fifth of all growth in consumption since 2001. “A lot of the strength we have seen in consumption is housing related,” said Brian DePratto, the economist who wrote the 2015 report. If you strip out the direct and indirect impact from housing on the economy, “you are talking about a much lower trend pace of growth.”
It’s hard to believe, but there was a time not long ago when Canada’s banks lent more to businesses than homeowners. It was the norm in fact until the early 1990s, when mortgage loans surpassed business lending for the first time. Residential mortgages today make up about 52 per cent of all chartered bank loans, versus 21 per cent for business lending.
Still, that portion of business lending is up from a record low of 19 per cent in 2012, suggesting that as home valuations become stretched and as mortgage and capital regulations tighten, banks are increasingly looking to companies for lending growth.
A closer look, however, reveals that much of the new business lending is in fact real estate-related. Bank of Canada figures show 14 per cent of all private business loans from chartered banks are now bound for so-called real estate operator industries, the biggest share in the history of data back to 1981.
The $27.4 billion in private loans to the sector, which represents companies that own and manage real estate assets, exceeds the combined lending to the manufacturing and oil and gas sectors. That’s on top of the $15 billion loaned to developers, more than double levels in 2010.

Neighbourhood is a key criteria in finding a suitable home for the family.  Ease to commute and to access daily need are universally important.  For families with school children (now or plan to), a nurturing environment and quality schools for the young ones are among the most significant factors.  As such, Markham's Berczy neighbourhood has been very popular.

Ontario's New Foreign Buyer Tax & Rental Control

( Official Press Release )

Today, Premier of Ontario Kathleen Wynne introduced Ontario's Fair Housing Plan (16 measures) to "help more people find affordable homes, increase supply, protect buyers and renters and bring stability to the real estate market. "

The TWO most significant measures are:-

* Non-Resident Speculation Tax (NRST) of 15% for foreign buyers of residential properties in Greater Golden Horseshoe.  This is similar to British Columbia's Foreign Buyer Tax on Metro Vancouver real estate.

*Almost all Ontario rentals will be capped at 2.5% per annum.


今晨, 安省省長公布一共16招的樓市降溫措施, 目的是幫助普羅大眾可以找到能負擔的居所, 增加市場供應, 保障置業人士和租客, 並且希望穩定房屋市場。

其中兩項最重要措施:-

  • 對外國買家徵收15% [非居民投機];
  • 每年租金升幅上限定為 2.5%
BNN have a short summary of the 16 measures:-
  • A 15-per-cent non-resident speculation tax to be imposed on buyers in the Greater Golden Horseshoe area who are not citizens, permanent residents or Canadian corporations.
  • Expanded rent control that will apply to all private rental units in Ontario, including those built after 1991, which are currently excluded.
  • Updates to the Residential Tenancies Act to include a standard lease agreement, tighter provisions for "landlord's own use" evictions, and technical changes to the Landlord-Tenant Board meant to make the process fairer, as well as other changes.
  • A program to leverage the value of surplus provincial land assets across the province to develop a mix of market-price housing and affordable housing.
  • Legislation that would allow Toronto and possibly other municipalities to introduce a vacant homes property tax in an effort to encourage property owners to sell unoccupied units or rent them out.
  • A plan to ensure property tax for new apartment buildings is charged at a similar rate as other residential properties.
  • A five-year, $125-million program aimed at encouraging the construction of new rental apartment buildings by rebating a portion of development charges.
  • More flexibility for municipalities when it comes to using property tax tools to encourage development.
  • The creation of a new Housing Supply Team with dedicated provincial employees to identify barriers to specific housing development projects and work with developers and municipalities to find solutions.
  • An effort to understand and tackle practices that may be contributing to tax avoidance and excessive speculation in the housing market.
  • A review of the rules real estate agents are required to follow to ensure that consumers are fairly represented in real estate transactions.
  • The launch of a housing advisory group which will meet quarterly to provide the government with ongoing advice about the state of the housing market and discuss the impact of the measures and any additional steps that are needed
  • Education for consumers on their rights, particularly on the issue of one real estate professional representing more than one party in a real estate transaction.
  • A partnership with the Canada Revenue Agency to explore more comprehensive reporting requirements so that correct federal and provincial taxes, including income and sales taxes, are paid on purchases and sales of real estate in Ontario.
  • Set timelines for elevator repairs to be established in consultation with the sector and the Technical Standards & Safety Authority.
  • Provisions that would require municipalities to consider the appropriate range of unit sizes in higher density residential buildings to accommodate a diverse range of household sizes and incomes, among other things.

Tuesday Quotation / 星期二聯想 - 2017.04.11

The boys have been listening to folk songs from Spotify.  One of their favourites is Don McLean 's "Vincent".  As such, we have selected a quotation from Vincent Van Gogh as our #TuesdayQuote.

“Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.” 
~ Vincent Van Gogh




家中兩個男孩近期喜愛收聽70年代民歌, 其中一首他們喜愛的是 Don McLean's Vincent (
梵高的名字)。 這個 #星期二聯想 選了一句這荷蘭藝術家的語錄:-

"偉大的壯舉是透過完成一連串的細節而成就出來。"

箇中意思是不是跟我們常說"萬丈高樓從地起"有點相若?
