No Stopping First Time Buyers

Despite the high price tag for some homes in Toronto and the greater Toronto Area, first time buyers are still taking the leap into home ownership.  The high foreclosure rate in the United States still hasn’t deterred many in Canada.  However, with the increasing costs of homes, these owners may have to change their preferences.  For some, this means moving outside of Toronto, like Scarborough and moving in to a condominium instead of a semi or detached home.

First Impressions for Home Buyers

Curb appeal may have more to do with the sale of a home than most think.  Research shows that most individuals in the market for a new home get their first impression of a home by an internet photo or newspaper ad.  Almost always that photo is taken of the exterior of the property.  If the home hunters don’t like the looks of the outside chances are they won’t bother taking a look on the inside.
