Selling a home is a decision that people rarely make lightly. In fact, many home buyers and sellers do an average of about 18 months of research and contemplating before taking an active step in their next real estate transaction. If you are part of this group that is contemplating the sale of your current home, the subject has likely been rolling around in your mind for the past few months. Ask yourself the following questions to gain some clarity and let you know if the time has come to put your home on the market. And if you find the answer is a resounding ‘yes!’, don’t hesitate to contact a local Chestnut Park Agent to assist in this major step!
House hunting? Here’s a quick list of the open houses we have on the go this weekend. Happy hunting!
Designed as a private enclave, this 58 acre country estate in the heart of Collingwood/Blue Mountains offers unparalleled privacy without sacrificing easy access to all the amenities the area has to offer.

As we wrap up the summer season and turn our minds back to school and regular work schedules next week, so too will the real estate market; turning from a steady meandering pace to the warp-speed of the fall market. In preparation for the shift from lazy summer days to brisk weekend house-hunting, we’ve rounded up the top real estate headlines making news this week.
Lemony yellow, limey green, fresh orange and zesty grapefruit pinks. It may not be the steamiest of summers but you know what they say about life handing you lemons…A room awash in refreshing colour or an unexpected accent – take a new twist on shades that pop. Get happy. Squeeze some summery inspiration into your home. It’s a year round way to punch up your surroundings and keep things refreshing. A tip – the shade of white you choose for trim will go a long way to affecting the effect a vibrant colour has in a room. Think bright white surfaces for a more contemporary look, moving towards ivory for a warmer, cozier feel.
July’s resale market performance was one of the strongest on record for the greater Toronto area, even though it was the third monthly drop in reported sales. In May 11,034 sales were reported, 10,158 in June and July 9,198. The monthly decline is consistent with seasonal patterns. The strongest month is usually May, with sales dropping during the summer months as both buyers and sellers focus on vacations and enjoying our limited, but warmer weather. A further drop in sales in August is also a part of the typical selling pattern.
