Digital Marketing Build your list

Online marketing trumps traditional marketing in forms of both effectiveness and potential for saturation, but how do you go about marketing a home or condo on the internet? If you're going to set yourself apart, not only do you need to understand the fundamentals and mechanics of digitally marketing real estate, but you also need to ensure you have something that accurately portrays your home.

Simply put, pictures just don't do it anymore. Everyone knows that videos have begun springing up across realtors' websites in an effort to better showcase a home. It's obvious that videos help. However, today, a simple video just won't cut it anymore, nor will great photos. Today, for realtors and prospective home owners to set themselves apart in the digital marketing fray, they need 3D models and showcases of their homes.

Its never about the money; But it is

Is it really about who had the new roller skates in 1965?

Family torn apart by incapacity, ownership, living gift issues

When great wealth is at stake, families are time and again torn apart. In 2018, the Ontario Superior Court of Justice presided over a particularly vicious case involving three siblings, their elderly mother, a sophisticated game-playing spouse, and Mattamy Homes (Rubner v. Bistricer 2018 ONSC 1934).

POA means there are responsibilities.

Toronto Real Estate The Year in Review

Toronto Real Estate Stats and Graphes 

What do you think will happen?

Toronto Real Estate Board says;

TREB President Garry Bhaura announced that Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported 4,009 home sales through TREB’s MLS® in January 2019 – up by 0.6 per cent compared to January 2018. On a preliminary seasonally adjusted basis, sales were up by 3.4 per cent compared to December 2018.
“It is encouraging to see the slight increase in January transactions on a year-overyear basis, even with the inclement weather experienced in the GTA region during the last week of the month. The fact that the number of transactions edged upwards is in line with TREB’s forecast for higher sales in calendar year 2019,”

 Garth Turner says:

But here’s the reality. As reported here ten days ago, the current average detached 416 price of $1.174 million is 13.3% lower than it was exactly 12 months ago. Someone needing to sell would have a loss of more than $180,000 plus $47,138 in land transfer tax (paid when they bought) and another $58,700 in commission. The total hit = $285,800, or 21%. The average detached house in the heart of the GTA is changing hands for 12% less than in the Spring of last year and a 25.6% below what it commanded the previous year.

Real Estate is local

We need to look neighbourhood by neighbourhood, street by street.

Not all are down....
