How many times have we seen this in an MLS listing: “Featuring $30,000 in Upgrades!”
Does this excite you? Should it?
How do you evaluate this “so-called” $30,000?
Let’s have a look…

X-Condos is the newest, hottest building in the midtown area at the moment, and we’re already seeing some crazy things happen!
For example, how about raising the asking price of a condo by $80,000 just a few days after it’s listed?
Me thinks it’s going to be a strange Spring market…

Oh yeah……this post didn’t cause any problems!
The words that followed spawned a record fifty-one comments from readers; most of them vicious attacks on me personally. It’s okay – I have a thick skin…

I’m told that Rogers TV put together a show in December where reps from Plazacorp were shown my blog video and then proceeded to defend their construction “style” by claiming that I was an uninformed investor who had no idea what I was doing.
For the record – I was asked to be on that show and I politely declined. But the producer, with all his class and integrity, went ahead with the episode and used videos from my blog.
I’m hereby challenging him to a fight in the Octagon…

Yeah, this was a great way to start 2010!
Sometimes when the truth is ignored for long enough, it almost renders it untrue. I blew the whistle on the lack of creativity and ingenuity from some of the 32,000 of the people that I work with, and I was chastized by a large portion of my industry.
In the weeks that followed, I was issued apologies, asked to lunches, and offered jobs by seven brokerages!
For the record: I’m fine where I am. I work for the best brokerage in the City of Toronto and I’ll back up that claim any day of the week.
