The greater Toronto market continued unchecked in August. The torrid pace that the Toronto and area market place for residential resale properties has been setting throughout 2015 continued in August. August’s results firmly put the Toronto market on track to shatter all previous resale records. At the end of August Toronto area realtors had sold 72,198 residential properties, more than 10 percent than the same period last year. With only 4 months left in 2015, the market is on pace to see 102,000 properties sold by the time we ring in 2016. The previous best year for the Toronto market was 2007 when Toronto realtors sold 93,193 properties. Last year 92,783 properties were reported sold.

If you’re grasping on to summer for dear life, there are certain decor elements that move easily between seasons.

But reality tv is not reality, and there’s a lot to think about before you buy a fixer-upper.
