Is the answer to buy or to rent

Tuesday Nov 26th, 2019


I was recently with a realtor friend who told me that he was out-bidded on a rental unit he was working on for a client of his.  He had offered $500 more per month than the asking price and also offered to pay 6 months up front.  Unfortunately in this market,  what is a normal amount to pay.  It all comes down to supply and demand.

It is all about lifestyle

 It is once again fall. We love this time of year. Not to hot and not  too cold.  We moved to the Orangeville area 20 + years ago to be one with nature.

On a day like today when the weather is hot and humid and just moving slightly causes you to break out into a profuse sweat. What do I do? I am a realtor. I need to be outside as much as possible. If I do not connect with my clients or with new people I get no business.

Having been in this business for many years now I know that the selling of a house is... [read more]
