What the latest stock market crash could mean for Real Estate?

The Toronto stock market tumbled again Friday, which is considered to be the worst decline in two years.

This is giving way to fear and stress. No one really knows what the chaos means to them. Ultimately, there is no magic wand that will make things better. However, there are alternative solutions.

We cannot control the world but we can control part of our surroundings. Which brings me to a very valid point: Real estate by far is the most secure long term investment one could make.

Stock markets have a huge gambling component. However, real estate will still be there after dust settles and is not subject to the vagaries we see in the stock market now.

You too can make money if you have a good negotiator by your side that will show you good (if not great) deal(s) that will provide you with a hefty return on investment.

If you are an amateur or seasoned investor in Real Estate, look no further and contact me! I would love to hear from you.

Post long weekend ...

The long weekend has come and gone.....

It all went by so fast with an open house in Mississauga (Queen Elizabeth Way and Port Credit area ) and showing properties to my first time home buyers! Gotta love em..

Speaking of the open house. I have to say I am very much impressed with the work done in the house. The sellers got rid of the clutter and got their house staged (Thanks to my advice!)

And....what a difference it makes. Everyone who came to open house marvelled on how "spacious" and "beautiful"  and "professionaly painted" the house looks. And damn right, it does.

The house looks roomy and bright which translates to welcoming and utters a"buy-me" slogan. Here is a snapshot of what it looks from the inside.

You can practically own this property for $1200/monthly. The selling price is $349,000 which I have to say is quite aggresively priced as the sellers vacated the property and staged it for maximum exposure and move in ready condition.

You can always call me for viewing ! I would love to hear from you.

Until my next post... Have a good day!!
