Where the Heart is

Courtesy of Frederick Peters, President of Warburg Realty As I wing my way east across the country for the third time this month, I look forward to getting home. What a powerful concept home is! For me, a fifth generation New Yorker who loves everything the city has to offer, home denotes both the specific apartment in which I live and the city itself. More broadly, it also embraces the rolling hills of Westchester County, where I spent my childhood summers and week-ends at my grandmother's house, up through the northwest corner of Connecticut where I spend my week-ends now. It's my landscape and I feel at home in it, a member of the herd on familiar ground.

Your Market Snapshot of South Miami and Pinecrest Real Estate

Courtesy of Avatar Real Estate                         When people think of Miami, many think of the glitz and glamour of South Beach, but most property owners live in the residential areas that make up much of Miami-Dade County. This month we spotlight the South Miami and Pinecrest luxury real estate* markets – two of South Florida’s most family-friendly, historic and scenic residential neighborhoods. In fact, we believe in these areas so strongly that we opened an Avatar Real Estate Services office in South Miami!

Small is Beautiful

Courtesy of Frederick Peters, President of Warburg Realty To judge from reports in the press, New York is a city filled with foreign billionaires. They plunk down $30, $40, or $50 million to buy crash pads in which they will likely reside no more than 45 days each year. There is no denying that market does exist, but it represents a tiny fraction of the real life transactions which are consummated each year. While the mega-market has slowed, both for condominiums and co-ops, properties under $2 million remain both sought after and fought over. 4.5 and 5 room apartments are THE hot commodity of 2014!

The Everlasting Luxury Real Estate Market in Toronto, Canada

Courtesy of Daniel Milstein with Forest Hill Real Estate Toronto. The elite, the fashionable, the advantageous and most importantly, the luxurious. A thriving city and recently taking the title for 4th largest in North America (beating Chicago, sorry!); the upwards rise in the Toronto popularity game has been steadily growing over the last 10+ years, and there is absolutely no surprise why. According to a 2014 summer quarterly report conducted by Sotheby’s International and the Canadian Real Estate Association, 36 per cent of condos listed at between $1- 2 million sold above asking price; 41 per cent of those listed between $2-4 million also sold above asking and all of those listed above $4 million got more than asking. Sotheby’s also mentions that “Given strong economic fundamentals, increased consumer confidence and mortgage lending rates that remain at historical lows, all markets are expected to gain momentum in the latter part of 2014,” which has evidently proven correct with average Yorkville condo sales in the shy of 965k mark from Toronto Real Estate Board Stats.
