    Baby, we got a bubble!?

    My understanding is that construction workers long ago started to divert into other such industries, which makes sense.

    Real estate agents - why do you do this?

    The very first time I encountered this was with my first listing years ago. I tried for over an hour to change the capitalization thinking it was me. Out of complete frustration I called up my mentor who explained there was nothing I could do to change it. Now I don't even notice. What is...

    Baby, we got a bubble!?

    CN Tower, to whom do you refer when you say you assure our “organization†demands we use this tactic? Yes I agree it is a tactic but one employed for advertising originating mostly at the salesperson level rather than the reason you suggest. As an example, flyers or sold signs stating that...

    Baby, we got a bubble!?

    CN Tower, I would prefer if percentage of asking price was not published on the statistical reports because it is actually a meaningless number for several reasons. When trying to establish a price from comparative sales, Realtors, buyers and sellers defer to the only numbers that matter –...

    Interested, I am asking you again, Why do you not call your Realtor and have them pull all the information that you want right before yor very eyes? Is that not a reasonable suggestion and would it not give you the information that you seek?

    Drewp: Sales are based on those reported as firm between Oct 1 and Oct 14 the criteria is to use the last update field 10/01/2013 to 10/14/2013 otherwise you’re not recognizing the ‘reported firm’ date. I still get 582 condo apartments on original login and also new login. Feel free to...

    Interested, I did in fact answer your question, to the best of my ability and within the parameters I am legally limited to. It’s unfortunate that’s not acceptable to you however, some other Realtor is free to provide what you ask for, it just won’t be me. You’ve not stated how the...

    Interested, the duplicate and triplicate listings you refer to is CREA related, not TREB, and pertains to a property in one board’s jurisdiction being placed on the MLS systems of other boards for reach to more Realtors and their buyers. Each board is independent of the other and assigns an...

    “You’re a bitch†“You’re a bitch†“You’re a bitch.†“Bullshit†and add the afore mentioned “Pig Shit†What an angry little misogynistic man lacking in confidence you must be to resort to that type of language. What exactly did Ross Kay say to you? I suspect not...

    Well, maybe he will choose to do so and maybe he won’t, we’ll see – I can be easily reached. But it’s hypocritical that a private conversation would stop you from sharing same when you have zero respect for the private information disclosed between buyers and sellers. And there it is...

    That rant of yours can only make only sense to you, pf4redflag/recharts. Seriously now, I would manipulate that screen shot when numerous Realtors on UT have the ability to do the same search and call me out if I’m lying? Or is it your contention that they too would lie to you...

    ItsSoldYoureMoving is right here. Every time you call me out you’re made to look foolish. And your stats are wrong again, they’re always wrong and will continue to be wrong. I’ve told you numerous times that you’re scraping data from third party sites which they manually pull from...

    Good Realtors (to sell property)

    Reiterating Jaycola and James. Interview at least three, make sure they understand real estate contracts http://urbantoronto.ca/forum/showthread.php/7480-Anyone-sold-their-own-home-Or-used-a-flat-fee-MLS-service?p=731055#post731055

    Anyone sold their own home? Or used a flat-fee MLS service?

    A Realtor’s knowledge to me includes all of those things yes, but if that is all knowledge is then Realtors don’t possess any more than the trusted friend, neighbourhood resident or even possibly the client might have. Obviously then, trust is also not knowledge, trust is the client’s belief...

    True, one cannot time the market but that statement should be qualified - one cannot time the high or the low. One can though understand it sufficiently enough especially on the macro neighbourhood level by folowing its ebbs and noticing the trending which would enable them to make a choice...

    Anyone sold their own home? Or used a flat-fee MLS service?

    I agree with many of your points but how does the novice and average buyer and seller measure a Realtor’s knowledge? For example, a deposit is not 'the consideration' nor is one necessary and especially not required to bind the parties to a contract. Realtor’s make pronouncements all the...

    I really enjoy reading the varied opinions on this thread and hope not to see it degenerate into all those started elsewhere by recharts’ alter ego as pf4redflag such as ‘behind the avg. numbers for T.O listings’ many of which have been locked. I also hope the moderator is watching because it is...

    Azureray, does your estimated purchase price include an HST rebate? On another note, within five years I foresee prices for condos under 700sf, even 1000sf suffering as downsizing boomers battle young families for the limited larger spaces.

    Without a doubt recharts is the same individual who has been banned for bad behaviour three times within as many months on another rather large forum and is currently banned. The modus operandi is the same – links to Turner, Rabidoux, watchdog et al along with these iterations he created...
