    West Harbour City Condos 1 (Berkley Homes, Plaza Corp) - Real Estate -

    I am in phase 1 and am actually hearing that late June is the expected registration and closing on the building, with everybody taking poccession. I got that from an employee I spoke to who works for Berley Property Management who was at the condo once. I was hoping for sooner, however, what...

    Yes, great finish and quality of material and work. I was impressed, however, my inspector was very surprised to see it this far along for a PDI. He thought the finish was great as well. Very re-assuring for a first time buyer. Got a letter from Plazacorp today confirm January 25 occupancy...

    Inspector for PDI Hello all, If anybody needs an inspector for a PDI, I highly recommend Brent Jeffreys from 'Classic Home Inspections Inc.' @ 416 458 5895. He is very thorough and seemed to know his stuff. We found him through this site...

    West Harbour City Condos 1 (Berkley Homes, Plaza Corp) - Real Estate -

    Some of the suite itself Great finishes. PDI was smooth and everything was finshed very nicely. Fridge and stove due in. Stoves were being unloaded off a truck as I was leaving while fridge is likely last thing in as they are fully electronic and they don't want them laying around a lot to...

    See, WHC is on the south side of the tracks. 500 meters can make a huge difference a wise man said. Jack

    Rêve Condos (Tridel) - Real Estate -

    Logic would have it that it is priced into the value as it is there first, no? Tridel sold a good chunk of their units only to have this released after. Huge uproar about this release, so it obviously is reason for concern. It won't be bad to have it there, it is the perception that comes...

    Also, you mention WHC is ugly, well, that's your opinion, as many find it to be a nice change from the 'all glass' buildings currently found throughout the city. The fact it may be surrounded by buildings you find ugly, again, your opinion, makes it stand out that much more. Plus, what...

    Rêve Condos (Tridel) - Real Estate -

    I never said WHC was worth more, however, I do not see the justification of The Reve prices relative to something like WHC. Also remember, the bigger they are, the harder they fall. When the market peaks and comes down, there is always a lot more people willing to buy unit at under $400k than...

    Speaking of headlines... ...here is what will be across from your $500 psf condo to go with your slaugherhouse and train system. The Bulletin; CityPlace owners shocked by 42-storey TCHC plans Fear of increased crime rates, lower property values and transforming a prestige community into...

    Baby, we got a bubble!?

    The Sky is falling I think that prices will continue to rise for the time being. I think some people are due to get hurt. Those people would be primarily those who purchased with nothing down and also purchased a home/condo at the max they got approved for at the bank. One the other hand...

    Rêve Condos (Tridel) - Real Estate -

    Yeah, the prices are that much more because people are crazy enough to pay for it. I personally rather walk an extra 5-10 minutes (depends how drunk you are) from the bar to Fleet Street and sleep in quiet. Front Street (Reve) is really nothing special and sure, even if you do consider it King...

    Sorry, are you speaking of The Reve or WHC phase 1? Jack

    Rêve Condos (Tridel) - Real Estate -

    Right, I'm not saying West Harbour City is worth more, however, do you agree with a difference of $75-$100 psf difference? Look what one gets with WHC phase 1: Suite features: -granite kitchen counter -Paris cabinets in kitchen and bathrooms -Kohler faucets and Blanco sinks in kitchen and...

    Rêve Condos (Tridel) - Real Estate -

    I don't agree with the $75-100 difference psf. I agree if you are going for a bad area to a good area, than yes, 500 meters makes a huge difference. However, the Reve has a slaughterhouse in the area, and yes it is close to King West and Portland, however, it is not on King. Plus, Front...

    So let me pick people's brains. What do you think a 1J+D from: http://560front.com/pdf/reve-560-front-pricelist.pdf Would sell for at West Harbour City phase 1. Is the per sq.ft difference in price very big? I'm asking for value without parking, staight unit price. Thank you, Jack

    Rêve Condos (Tridel) - Real Estate -

    So how would you all say this development compares to West Harbour City phase 1, about 500 meters away? I have a 1 bedroom + den there @ 765 sq.ft with parking and locker. These prices look outrageous, and I really don't see them worth that much more than those on Fleet Street. I don't really...

    Baby, we got a bubble!?

    Hi, Sorry, why do you say April? I believe a little later, as the threat of HST and promised increase in interest rates later in the year will keep people buying now to save later, or so they believe. Maybe it is wishful thinking as I will be selling mine in the spring and hope the market...

    Baby, we got a bubble!?

    See, you may use your brain and logic, however, many don't. The market is often driven far more by emotion than logic. You can see crazy bidding wars, driving up house prices $50-$100k above the ask. The ask was probably right at fair market value but because a few people wanted it, seller...

    Baby, we got a bubble!?

    Can I ask you what else your crystal ball tells you about the economy and where we are headed in the next 3-5 years? The fact of the matter is that you sound like the same person who told me the 765 sq.ft I signed for in 2005 @ $220k was overpriced and that prices will correct and I'll get it...
