What to look for in a Yorkville Condo

When looking for a Yorkville condo to buy or let it there are a lot of things to consider, some of which are less obvious and you may forget to check or ask about at first.

For a start apart from the <a href=”http://www.searchlocalcondos.com/”>condo</a> itself what else do you get use of such as hallways, elevators and maybe even laundry facilities, will you have to pay a ground rent or other costs towards communal facilities? These may also include heating, which can be better value than having your own heating system.

How thick are the walls and floors or ceilings: the extent to which sound travels between apartments varies between blocks based on their age and construction. Try tapping on walls and ideally visit potential properties on weekends or evenings when there will be people about to give you an idea how noisy they may be.

Rooms often look smaller once they have furniture in so be careful if viewing an empty property and compare floor sizes to what you currently have to give you a better idea and to make sure that you will be able to fit everything in. Think about wall space as well as floor space as some layouts, including open plan as well as condos with lots of windows, may have less wall space: which may mean that you have nothing to put some furniture against.

Know What To Look For In A Condo

(as it appears each Friday in the Toronto Sun)

April 22, 2011 — Condominium transactions (sales of condo apartments and condo townhouses combined) comprise approximately one in every three resale home transactions in the Greater Toronto Area compared to 25 years ago when condominiums comprised 25 per cent of the market.

There are many advantages to condo living including energy efficiency, proximity to amenities and maintenance free living. There is also a wider selection of condominium housing structures than ever before.

Regardless of the structure all condominium owners hold title to their units and share ownership and responsibility of and for the operating costs of the common elements that comprise the balance of the property.

Maintenance fees, which are paid in addition to your mortgage and property taxes, are directly related to the size of each condominium apartment unit.

While the maintenance fees may include the cost of heat, hydro, building insurance and upkeep of common areas, it is important to understand specifically what is covered in the maintenance fees.

Ask your REALTOR® for help in understanding what your fees will include in the particular condominium you’re interested in buying.

Condominium townhouses may also involve maintenance fees. In this case, fees are related to common areas outside of the structure like Snow removal and lawn care.

There are a number of details involved in a condominium purchase that are unique to this housing type. As such, it’s wise to work with a REALTOR®, regardless of whether you are buying a new or resale unit.

When buying a new condo unit, buyers should request a disclosure statement. It includes a description of the project’s most important features, bylaws that govern the corporation, rules that regulate owners’ living environments and the condominium corporation’s budget for the first year after registration.

When buying a resale condo, buyers should also request a status certificate, which offers similar information and confirms that the owner is current with common expenses. It’s important to speak with your REALTOR® and discuss which conditions are best suited for your offer.

The move-in date for a new condominium is referred to as an occupancy closing, which takes place until the condominium corporation is registered. Again, ask your REALTOR® to help you understand exactly what is and can be expected at closing.

A condominium Board of Directors, consisting of at least three Directors, is responsible for ensuring monies are held in trust, funds are properly invested and records are kept.

Owners meanwhile are responsible for ensuring their units are in good repair and must seek approval for structural changes within them.

To be sure that you are clear as to your responsibilities as a condominium buyer, be sure to talk to a Greater Toronto REALTOR® who can help you find a condominium ideally suited to your lifestyle. For more information visit http://www.TorontoRealEstateBoard.com

Strong March Resales -despite 19% decline in listings

President’s Newspaper/Magazine Columns

National Post Column (as it appears in the National Post on the second Saturday of each month)

April 11, 2011 — The first quarter of 2011 ended strongly for the existing home market in the Greater Toronto Area. Resale transactions reported through the TorontoMLS® system in March amounted to 9,262 – the second strongest March on record behind March 2010. There were 19,610 sales reported during the first quarter, representing a 12.5 per cent dip compared to the record pace experienced during the first three months of 2010.

I asked Jason Mercer, the Toronto Real Estate Board’s (TREB’s) Senior Manager of Market Analysis, to provide some context for the sales figures reported so far this year. He provided both a historical back-drop and a forward looking view: “This year’s first quarter result was slightly higher than the average for the last five years and was in line with TREB’s forecast sales range for 2011. At the beginning of this year, our forecast range for sales through the TorontoMLS® was between 80,000 and 85,000. The actual first quarter result supports this forecast, so we will be making very little if any adjustment to our outlook on sales,” said Mercer.

The average price for March 2011 transactions was $456,147, representing a five per cent increase compared to the average of $434,696 reported in March of 2010. Price growth through the first three months of the year was quite uniform, ranging between four and little over five per cent. I asked Jason Mercer to provide his view on the pace of price growth so far this year.

“The annual rate of price growth in the first quarter was at the upper end of TREB’s forecast range of between three and five per cent. We have not seen as many new listings as expected so far this year. In March, for example, new listings were down by 19 per cent compared to March 2010. This means that market conditions have tightened up and there is more competition between buyers. The result has been continued price growth,” said Mercer.

When considering housing market conditions in the GTA, I think it is also important to break things down in terms of geography and home type. First off, home buyers in the GTA benefit from a great diversity of home types. In the first quarter, a substantial share of home sales was accounted for by the four major home types: single-detached and semi-detached houses, townhomes and condominium apartments. Low-rise home types accounted for approximately three-quarters of total sales, with condominium apartments accounting for the other 25 per cent. Average sale prices ranged between approximately $320,000 for condominium apartments through to approximately 570,000 for single-detached homes.

It is interesting to note, however, that when we break sales down by geography the mix of home types sold can vary quite a bit. In the City of Toronto, 45 per cent of total sales were accounted for by condominium apartments. The regions surrounding the City of Toronto have a much greater share of low-rise sales along with some denser nodes of condominium apartment sales in parts of Peel and York regions.

The existing home market remains on a healthy footing in the GTA. Sales levels remain strong from a historic perspective and the average selling price continues to grow at a strong, but sustainable pace. With the economic outlook continuing to improve, I expect this situation will continue moving forward.
