The holidays are at its peak season right now, and we have to admit, we’re all getting into the spirit. It’s a time for gathering friends and family and remembering what’s really important at this time of year.

It’s also the end of the decade – but is it? Is 2020 the last year of the decade or the first year of the next decade? Think about that one….

We wanted to take this opportunity to thanks all of our clients, followers, readers, colleagues, fellow brokers, developers and industry friends for making this year an incredibly special one.

TRB’s Top Blogs of 2019

We’ve seen a lot of love for our blog posts this year – some of our most popular blogs were:

  1. How Pre-Construction Condos Can Work for You
  2. 10 Things a First Time Home Buyer Needs to Know in 2019
  3. Why You Need a Buyer’s Agent to Purchase a House or Condo
  4. Renting vs. Buying: What’s Best for Me?
  5. 5 Tips for Saving for a Down Payment

We’ve seen many clients go through the real estate process this year and we have to admit, they’re all pretty damn happy! Some first-time buyers got to experience the rush of purchasing their FIRST home in Toronto – going through that process isn’t easy and nothing makes us happier than helping them get their foot into the Real Estate door.

We’ve helped sellers sell their homes for much more than expected – that smile when the contract is firmed up is unlike any other. Some have gone on to purchase bigger homes for their expanding families, and some have taken on amazing reno projects that are sure to impress come their completion dates.

Toronto Pre-Construction Condos

Pre-construction buying was ON FIRE this year, and we were right in the thick of it. We helped SO many first-time investors get into the market and they’re already seeing profits on their purchases. Some buyers closed on their pre-construction condos they purchased a few years ago and are now enjoying rental income each month. How’s that for a major success?!

Toronto Real Estate in 2020

What’s coming in 2020? We wrote a very popular blog post about what we see happening in 2020 – check it out our 2020 Market Predictions if you’re interested in our take on what’s to come. And if you’re thinking about making moves in the New Year, don’t do anything without reading our Top 10 Tips for Buying Real Estate in Toronto.

Working in Real Estate is very special for our team, as we’re able to truly get to know clients and see them take major steps in their lives. It’s the relationships that make what we do so fulfilling – it honestly doesn’t feel like work. (most of the time…)

So Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of our extended Real Estate family. We hope this time of year brings you joy as you make memories in your home. Because that’s what really turns a house or condo into a home – the memories you make there.
