Are you missing out on a tax rebate for your heritage property? Under the Municipal Act, 2001, municipalities may give tax relief to owners of eligible heritage properties by passing a by-law creating a heritage property tax relief program.
Welcome back Spring! Warmer weather is finally coming back, and we expect to continue to see activity increasing in the marketplace. Historically, April-May has always been 'the peak' for new listings hitting MLS, followed closely by mid-September.
We have some great new listings currently on the market - a wonderful home situated in the midst of Historical Unionville Village. An excellent opportunity to build-on to this cozy home, with it's amazing location and large lot, it's a builders dream.
If you are in the market for a larger, luxury home, with the benefit of a condo, 41 Glenburn Forest Way could be for you. This home features over 4600 sq.ft. of finished space, and is lock-and-leave ready - no yard maintenance to worry about!
Lots more coming soon!
It's a very different Market out there today, as we come down from the surreal speed we have been experiencing over the last year. We are thrilled for the quick sale of our latest listing at 33 Hollingham Road! Congratulations Enzo and Sharon!
Proof that the Market is still on fire... Another multiple-offer evening for the sale of 72 Longwater Chase in Unionville, with a spectacular $277,000 over asking price! Congratulations!
With so much history in the midst of the growing Unionville community, the details of the proposed York Downs Golf & Country Club redevelopment are of interest to many residents. At the end of January 2017, 'Sixteenth Land Holdings Inc.' the developer group representing the builders for the YDGCC lands, held an information session, presenting their initial proposal details.
Some highlights of the presentation include:
- Total property size = 417 acres, with 311 being available for development, the balance is green space
- Development to be split into 3 stages of "East and West" plans, on each side of the north-to-south green space divide
- Development includes everything from 70' single lots to high and low-rise residential, and a small portion for mixed-use commercial
- Residential Units proposed: West = 1,164, East = 1,257, for a total of 2,421 residential units
- Density of this proposal is approx 19.2 units / hectare - compared to Angus Glen at 16.7/ha, Upper Unionville at 20/ha
- Plan includes 5 'gateway' access points to Kennedy Road and 16th Ave, three of which closely align to some of the existing YDGCC roadways and access
- One transit loop through the community is proposed
- One Elementary school is proposed

The numbers are in, and are again strong -- February home sales were up 16% (as compared to 2010) for the Greater Toronto Area. Some highlights from last months numbers:
- York Region's average resale price was $584,973 (GTA average is %502,508)
- Markham had 338 sales, Richmond Hill 263, Vaughan 351
- 60% of sales in February were fully-detached homes
- Average sale price of a semi-detach in Markham grew to $452,000
With low interest rates being maintained, we would expect the market to continue on the same trajectory for the near future - expect near-term prices to climb slightly in the Markham, Unionville and Stouffville areas.
Another good article from the Toronto Star today, describing how Toronto is still primarily a sellers market, quite different from how the Vancouver market has cooled considerably recently.
Toronto is still “a bit of a seller’s market” but moving toward a buyers market while the Vancouver market has cooled to the point where bidding wars are largely a thing of the past and buyers have moved back into the driver’s seat, Warren noted.
Markham and Unionville again are maintaining a strong sellers market, as 'for sale' inventory of detached homes is very low. Despite Toronto's pricing flattening considerably, the highly-desireable areas of Markham Village and Unionville continue to reach new heights. It's shaping up to be an impressive spring season!
