Government thinks these measures will cool the hot market. Are they aiming at the right places?

As a REALTOR, part of me wants to see the gov’t do something about escalating prices. But the other side of me has investors who are paying too much for homes, then being forced to pass it on to renters with higher initial rents. Capping increases will help, yes, but what about the high starting rent? And these investors aren’t foreigners, their Toronto investors coming to Hamilton. Conrad Zurini (Remax) said today on radio that Hamilton has been undervalued for years and that some of these prices are accurate. But the banks don’t agree since they don’t appraise them for the amount we’re paying in bidding wars.

What’s the answer? Anybody’s guess. We’ll see what they actually do. In the following article, the gov’t is hinting at dealing with REALTOR practices (big surprise), as well as foreign investment. I don’t think they’re aiming in the right direction. Shouldn’t banking practices be brought into play also? After all, they are the industry making the most money in this environment.

Housing issues won’t involve reducing the Greenbelt

Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne says that as the province looks to tackle housing supply issues, it won’t reduce the Greenbelt lands.

She says the government is actually committed to expanding the Greenbelt, which is about 800,000 hectares of protected land that borders the Greater Golden Horseshoe area surrounding Lake Ontario.

Wynne says the Greenbelt is “like the lungs of this highly populated part of the province.”

Thumbnail front pg cover

There are only two ways to sell your home in Canada: privately, or via an agent. Sold Strategies shows you how to list your home on the MLS without using an agent. It shows you how to prepare your home to attract the most Buyers. It shows you how to market your home to the most number of people… and much more!

Written by a real estate agent, the information is timely, accurate, and enlightening! If you put up a sign on the lawn, an ad in the paper, and your cell # in the ad…. the odds of selling your home are similar to winning a lottery. To sell privately, you have to know how the system works–so that you can use the system to your advantage.

The first three chapters discuss the cheapest, safest, and smartest ways to sell your home. The last four chapters tell you how to get your home in front of buyers, how to stage it so that it appeals to the majority of buyers, and how to market your home so that agents help you sell it.
