Strong Sales and Price Growth in May

 TORONTO, June 5, 2012 – Greater Toronto REALTORS® reported 10,850 transactions through the TorontoMLS system in May 2012 – an 11 per cent increase over the 9,766 sales in May 2011. Sales growth was strongest in the ‘905’ regions surrounding the City of Toronto.

“Sales growth in the ‘905’ area code was stronger than growth in the City of Toronto across all major home types. While lower average prices are certainly one factor that has contributed to this trend, recent polling also suggests that the City of Toronto’s land transfer tax has also prompted many households to look outside of the City for their ownership housing needs,” said Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) President Richard Silver.

 

New listings were up substantially on a year-over-year basis in May – rising by more than 20 per cent to 19,177.

 

The average price for May 2012 sales was $516,787, representing an annual increase of 6.5 per cent compared to $485,362 in May 2011. Price growth continued to be driven by the low-rise market segment.

 

“Strong competition between buyers seeking to purchase low-rise home types drove strong price growth in May. However, if new listings continue to grow at the pace they did in May for the remainder of 2012, the annual rate of price growth should begin to moderate on a sustained basis,” said Jason Mercer, TREB’s Senior Manager of Market Analysis.

Land Transfer Tax Poll Results Released

 Land Transfer Tax Poll Results Released Ahead of Important Announcement by Toronto Real Estate Board

TORONTO, June 1, 2012

– Ahead of an important announcement to be made on Monday June 4th, by the Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB), regarding efforts on the City’s Land Transfer Tax, Toronto’s REALTORS® are releasing results of public opinion polling that shows, among other results, a strong majority of Torontonians, 66 percent, support plans to repeal the Toronto Land Transfer Tax.

The detailed polling results were formally presented by Mike Colledge, President, Canadian Public Affairs for Ipsos Reid at a TREB luncheon attended by various elected officials from all levels of government, shelter charity representatives, real estate industry representatives, and TREB Members.

“REALTORS® know that the Toronto Land Transfer Tax is having an impact on our City, and these poll results show that the public understands this too,” said Richard Silver, President of TREB. “The Toronto Land Transfer Tax is impacting real people and real jobs and it’s holding our City back. It’s time for action. TREB is looking forward to making an important announcement on this, next Monday.”

Among other key highlights of the poll were:

77 percent of Torontonians who recently purchased a home in Toronto feel that they received little or no added value in City services for the amount of Land Transfer Tax paid to the City;

A third of first-time buyers indicated that they had to pay some Land Transfer Tax to the City, notwithstanding City rebates;

 

In a list of issues facing municipalities, housing affordability was most often ranked as the most important by Torontonians, ahead of traffic congestion;

 

78 percent of Torontonians believe that property taxes are more transparent than the Land Transfer Tax and make it easier for the public to hold City Council accountable for their spending decisions;

 

Public opposition to the land transfer tax remains strong even if the tax were to be dedicated for spending on transit and infrastructure, with more than two-thirds, 68 per cent, opposed to this idea;

 

61 percent of Torontonians believe that City spending on programs and services is efficient and cost-effective. This is up from 45 percent a year ago, indicating a significant improvement.

This poll is the third conducted for TREB by Ipsos Reid in the last year.

 

“Public opinion on the Toronto Land Transfer Tax has remained consistent through all the ups and downs of the economy and City Hall debates. Clearly, the public’s opposition to this tax is strong,” said Von Palmer, TREB’s Chief Government and Public Affairs Officer. “We understand the importance of quality services to building a great city, but we believe that those services should be funded fairly and reliably.”

 

TREB will be following-up on the release of this polling data with the release of additional results and an important announcement on efforts regarding the Toronto Land Transfer Tax, on Monday June 4th.The poll was conducted by Ipsos Reid, from April 30 to May 7, 2012, with a sample of 1,257 adults, of which 653 live in the City of Toronto, and 604 live in the surrounding 905 region, with a margin of error of

+/-2.8 percentage points, 19 times out of 20. Questions were posed to only Toronto residents, or only 905 region residents, or both, as appropriate, depending on the question.  Source: TREB

Edition Richmond Residences

 

Edition Richmond is a collection of 20 tailored residences in Toronto that elevate real estate to art.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Edition Richmond Residences are three storey; two and three bedroom homes, each living space is its own masterpiece, designed by Audax Architecture, a boutique firm and recipient of the 2011 Toronto Urban Design Award. Renowned interior designers, Cecconi Simone have cultivated homes that are aesthetically stunning and highly functional and which reference the clean geometrics of 20th century cubism. Cecconi Simone have strived to make these residences so exclusive in their design, that they have ventured through the painstaking details such as creating custom blend stains for the hardwood flooring that will be featured as a standard in each home and will be exclusive only to Edition Richmond Residences. Custom designed kitchens expand into the dining area and living room for a contiguous main floor that is perfect for entertaining. Homes feature 10 ft. ceilings for a voluminous living space that feels airy and comfortable to come home to. Sky yards offer magnificent views of the skyline, providing you your own urban oasis (most homes). And what makes this all so appealing is that these luxury residences are nestled in a quiet enclave just south of Queen West where the amenities of urban living are coupled with a peaceful streetscape.

Edition Richmond Residences embodies the spirit and liveliness of Queen West and is at the epicenter of some of Toronto’s greatest neighbourhoods – Trinty Bellwoods, Ossington Strip, Dundas West and Liberty Village. These areas offer the best in shopping, dining, culture, nightlife and recreation.

The opportunity to live the clean lines and crisp beauty of an Edition Richmond by Cecconi Simone can be your everyday reality – world-class design that may otherwise be out of reach.

The Carlaw Condos

 

The Carlaw Condos is STREETCAR’s latest and most ambitious development coming soon to Leslieville in downtown Toronto’s east end.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Carlaw Condosis a 12-storey mid-rise Condominium building located on the north-east corner of Dundas and Carlaw in the heart of the Film District. The Carlaw Condos will offer over 300 lofts plus 21 townhomes, including studio, one, one plus den, two and two plus den bedroom lofts, ranging in size from 400 sq. ft. to over 1,000 sq. ft.  Prices will start from the low $200,000’s.

Head-turning architecture will soon invigorate the corner of Carlaw and Dundas Streets in Toronto, when Streetcar Developments introduces The Carlaw Condominiums. Sophisticated modernism sets the tone for this intimate new 12-storey residence. Innovative architecture features crisp angles, curved columns, a rooftop terrace and powerful perpendicular projections – all framing 320 lofts. The condominium will be anchored by a central courtyard that is part of a 25,000 sq. ft. indoor/outdoor event space. A rare find in a residential building, this attractive venue will be available for a multitude of functions for the neighbourhood and the community beyond.

Rethinking. Urban Living. is evident at The Carlaw Condominiums from the ground up. The ground floor will encompass one of the city’s most vibrant indoor/outdoor venues. The combined space of the inside venue and outdoor courtyard measures nearly 25,000 sq. ft. – a rare feature in a residential building. The flexible interior venue space can accommodate large open-concept events or be divided for smaller, more intimate functions. The entire facility spills out onto the courtyard and street-friendly outdoor spaces along Carlaw and Dundas.

This stunning multi-purpose space will be available for use by area residents, businesses and groups, as well as those in the greater community, to promote culture, the arts and entertainment. Inside, bold columns, polished stone floors and theatre-style lighting combine to create a celebratory environment that is as comfortable and inviting as it is striking.

Programming for this special space may include everything from art shows, festivals and fashion shows to theatre and music performances, a hotspot during Nuit Blanche, or film festival events – a major draw in this area, which is home to many film studios. Locals will enjoy easy access to the classes that will be held here, such as photography, cooking and fitness. The possibilities are truly endless. As The Carlaw Condominiums mantra goes, “This is your stage.”

One of The Carlaw Condo ’s most charming elements is the inviting outdoor courtyard at the centre of the L-shaped condominium and townhomes. This landscaped, treed area is highlighted by a reflecting pool, benches and views that carry through the glass-walled lobby and fabulous inner event space on the ground floor. An alfresco extension of this multi-purpose space, the courtyard lends itself to everything from quiet mornings reading the newspaper and enjoying a coffee under a shade tree, to serving as a spot where events held inside can expand into the outdoors.

The inner event/courtyard area can serve as a forum for corporate and community events, as well as film festivals, which is appropriate in this exciting film-oriented neighbourhood. During the spring, summer and fall, the courtyard itself may be used for a farmers’ market, performance art and just about any fair-weather gathering.

On the 11th floor, The Carlaw Condominiums’ unique rooftop oasis includes a cabana-inspired indoor lounge where the gang can chill with munchies and watch the game on the big-screen TV. Sleek, modern lines and contrasting textures create the ultimate urban atmosphere. The outdoor sundeck is literally steps away, which is perfect for entertaining friends and family in a breathtaking setting. Discover lofty living at its finest at this indoor portion of the rooftop – the ultimate social hangout in the sky.

The Carlaw Condo ‘s unique rooftop terrace and lounge spans the south elevation of the 11th level. The outdoor sun deck features contemporary loungers, barbecues and dining tables. In this perfect relaxation/entertainment spot, residents will be able to drink in the sun’s rays, flip some burgers and dine alfresco with guests, all surrounded by panoramic city views. From here, it’s an easy stroll to the indoor cabana-style area. This unique amenity space in the sky is sure to be a favourite spot for hanging out with neighbours and friends.
