    What is the demand for executive, furnished rentals?

    1 bedroom unit at 1 Bloor. Dilemma is whether to rent it as a furnished unit or vacant. It's small so furnishing it would cost about $5-6K. Have never done the furnished thing but feel it could work here. Thoughts?

    TVO: What's Wrong With Toronto Condos?

    Interesting discussion here: Agree with most of what was said. We're building a lot of crap and there are many reasons why. Biggest reason is speculation IMO. Speculators don't give 2 poops what the builidings will look like or how they will impact the neighbourhood.

    Thoughts on this 2+1 floorplan?

    I don't really consider the "den" a true den. Maybe a good spot for a dining table. The living room is on the small side.

    Anyone having trouble with the new REaltor.ca site?

    The site is crappy to begin with but I can't seem to search for properties. All I get is the "Searching for Listings" screen when I search for anything.

    Thoughts on the following floorplans (Gooderham condos)

    Some thoughts on these units would be appreciated. Biggest issue here is storage in the kitchen. It's non-existent and with some of the units I don't even know if a island is possible

    In today's precon condo market. Are builders now open to negotiating price?

    In today's precon condo market. Are there deals to be had? Over the last few years when precon was red hot. It was next to impossible to negotiate price. Now that precon isn't selling as well. I'm wondering if there are now deals to be had? Especially the condos that are within 6 months of...

    What are your thoughts on this floorplan and how would you decorate it?

    I like the layout and use of space. My only issue is the linear kitchen. I need to figure out how to add workspace and an eating area. What are your thoughts?

    Closing costs going way up. Concern?

    Closing costs have gone up exponentially over the last few years it seems. My worry is are people rushing in to buy these condos aware that their closing costs will be astronomical? I'm hearing a lot of horror stories about extremely high closing costs that even have lawyers stunned. Even if...

    Board seems to be running very slow

    Pages taking forever to load from me. Checked on my phone and same issue. Given the lack of traffic over the last little while I'd say others are experiencing the same thing.
