Is Parkdale Toronto’s Next Up And Coming Neighbourhood?
Or for those of you that already live there, would you say the "under-valued" ship has sailed, and the prices have already taken off? I drove around Parkdale on Sunday shooting this video, and I ended up chatting with two...
Reader’s Write: Up-And-Coming Toronto Neighbourhoods
My blog readers walked me right into this blog post! After the Monday blog about the Queensway & Islington pocket, which I feel is up-and-coming, my readers started a dialogue in the comments section about other areas which are under-valued, nondescript, or...
Are There Any “Up-And-Coming” Areas Left In Toronto?
In short: yes, even though prices throughout the GTA are rapidly climbing. There are neighbourhoods that I feel are undervalued, and there are neighbourhoods where there is still affordable real estate. Find an area that has both, and there you have an area that is most-certainly...

How Much Do School Rankings Affect Real Estate Values?
This will be a HUGE topic and bone of contention for some people, and others might skip this blog post entirely. This topic gets people's backs up in many, many different ways. It brings political, social, and economic beliefs and...
