Driving To Jackson Hole…

I suppose if you absolutely had to, you could pick your favourite city in the entire world. But how about your favourite place?  I mean your very favourite spot? Here's a video I shot from my favourite spot in the...

“Sagewood Sub-Division”

How about Sagewood Estates?  Would that have sold more homes? Or how about Sagewood Mews?  Even that sounds better... On Ski Hill Road, there is a sub-division with five houses and room for another seventy.  It is my opinion that...

Maple Leaf Square

Tomas Kaberle for Devin Setoguchi?  Straight up?  That's a dream! Wayne Gretzky is coming out of retirement to play for the Leafs?  That's great news! Oh, yeah - and there's also these two massive condominiums that just opened outside of...

Glarring Deficiencies

Four months into the occupancy phase, and this condo is far from complete. If you've never seen what the common elements of a condo looks like during "occupancy," perhaps this video will enlighten you... (more…)

Past The Due Date?

This goes a little beyond expired milk, me thinks. Every pre-construction condominium project in the city is delayed to some extent, but one project happens to be delayed and seems to be bragging about it... (more…)

Under The Bridge

Awesome song by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, but also the title of this video I shot yesterday afternoon. What started on Tuesday with the question, "Why would you buy a waterfront condo without a waterfront view," has now morphed...

Room With A View

Buyers pay big money to have a view of the lake, and there is one condominium on Toronto's waterfront that is different from all the rest. You might not realize it at first glance, but the design of this building...

Amateur Home Inspection

I'm no expert, but I'd say that there are a few 'minor' issues with this house. If it wasn't the large pool of water on the bathroom floor, then it might have been the constant "drip, drip, drip" coming from...

Good Things, Small Packages…

What's that old expression? Take a look at this 428 square foot condo on paper, and you might think it's a little too small for you. But have a look in person, and you'll see how effectively the space is...

Parking Wars!

I've never seen this in a Toronto condominium before! Stacked parking spaces!  I've seen tandem-parking before, but never stacked! Here's a video I shot in the parking garage just before security escorted me out...  (more…)

Sitting In The Dark…

Okay, so it's a bad play on words.  And the picture quality is terrible, but I thought it would be cool to film in the dark under a street lamp... And as I sat in the dark in my car last...

“That’s Gold, Jerry! Gold!”

Kenny Bania.....greatest guest character in Seinfeld history! Bania sure knew GOLD when he saw it, and I think the residents of the few remaining houses on Kenaston Gardens must see the pile that they're sitting on right now... (more…)

Deoxyribonucleic Acid

Phase Three of D.N.A. Condos is going to be launched on the northwest corner of King & Strachan this spring, and there is already a buzz about the project. As far as King West goes these days, I'm convinced that...

Foreclose The Door Behind You…

As I explain in great detail during the following video, I can't stand the growing sentiment in the market place that "all foreclosures are great deals." Do you know what a "foreclosure" is in Toronto? It's a house that is...

Kathman..du What You Please

Arg!  I just wrote a whole post about the proposed changes to the Gardiner Expressway in conjunction with the 2015 Pan Am Games, and then my computer froze and I lost the whole post! I'm too frustrated to write it...

Would You Live Next To The Highway?

I don't mean near the highway, I mean right smack-dab next to the 401. "Everybody's gotta live somewhere," goes the saying, and it's no surprise that the vacancy rates in Toronto area near all-time lows. Take a look at the...

Chevy Chase, Eat Your Heart Out!

National Lampoon's: Christmas Vacation was probably played about ten times over the past weekend, so now is as good a time as any to post the video below. There is a certain house, on a certain street in Toronto that...

CityPlace = ParkPlace?

My very first video blog! Concord Developments is at it again, only this time they're building a new version of CityPlace up at Bayview & Leslie called "Park Place." (more…)
