01 August 2013
Wilson Sisters

Some say yes, some say no. We say, it depends. If your home is in really rough shape, our advice would be to try to clean it up as best you can, and list it without having done too much, because chances are, your buyer is going to be a renovator. Just make sure to .. read more

Some of our clients have taken possession of their newly constructed investment condos this year…something we suggest to our clients is to spend a little money on upgrading the light fixtures in your unit, and be open to the idea of staging when trying to sell your new space.

Wilson Sisters

The Wilson Sisters and their constant companion these days, mini-Realtor Baby Will, attended a launch for 383 Sorauren a couple of weeks ago.

Why Follow the Pack?

23 January 2013
Wilson Sisters

We have to admit, it’s a very frustrating thing for us when the condo market takes a bit of a dive, that buyers, instead of buying when no one else is, take the “wait and see” approach. Why oh why don’t they take advantage of the lack of competition in a market that is so ..

Wilson Sisters

Our favorite mortgage broker, Rob Clancy of Safebridge Mortgage Solutions, recently sent out this article on Purchase Plus Improvements. We thought we would incorporate it into a blog because it addresses a product that doesn’t seem to be widely used. This handy mortgage product allows the buyer of a property to add some renovation costs ..

As you most likely have heard, in July of this year, the Government of Canada and the Superintendent of Financial Services implemented some new mortgage rules. There has been quite a bit of chatter and media discussion about the changes in the months since then. Up for debate is whether the new rules have affected ..

Looking for the perfect home?

17 September 2012
Wilson Sisters

There is probably a list of things you need and things you want in your next home, but putting them all on one single list would be a mistake. Why? Because buyers who separate what they need from what they want are much more likely to find a home that meets all their actual requirements. ..

Wilson Sisters

We happen to be big fans of Toronto. We’ve done some traveling, and have seen places that are incredibly beautiful, full of life and have a lot to offer. Toronto though, is home. That’s why, when we came across the work of Ryan Edmond, we were so excited at how beautifully he captured the Toronto ..
