There are many businesses outside of the downtown core that also have patios. I just fear that constant promoting of this space is going to just take from one (non core patio) and give to another (core patio). What about the Wooly? Or York Rd Kitchen, or Einstein’s or Bread Bar?

My guess is that LCBO and Beer Stores remain open to service the people who depend on these products. If they shut down alcohol access to those addicted, you'd have even more people flooding into the hospitals from withdrawal.

Thanks for your comment, John. I guess you could debate the headline choice, but I believe the world is a different place than it was 14 days ago. So often it's easier to look back on history and cast blame. We should have seen this coming, or we shouldn't have done this. It's the easiest thing to do.

But why don't we look into the future and be part of the change? Part of the solution? What have we learned from all of this?

Email me if you'd like to discuss: rwaller@homegrouprealty.ca

Keep healthy.

Thank you for this, Adam. Our estimate is that the higher end market of $750K+ will outpace the growth of the $750K or less in market share. Our rationale is that the higher end market will be supported from GTA migration who are downsizing and less price sensitive, while the $750K or less market will be more local moves that could be hit with short term job insecurity and may put off their next move altogether.

As you mention though, the market is very fluid and seems to be changing by the day!

Hi Bob, thanks for your reply. As you know, the level of job losses is still being assessed and will certainly have an impact on buyers ability to purchase. On the other hand, both government and banks are stepping in to address sellers inability to pay mortgages or financial obligations. Foreclosures in Ontario as a % of mortgages is the lowest in the country at .09% (https://cba.ca/mortgages-in-arrears), so putting foreclosures as you suggest into a 650 word article would not be a good use of space. If you have specific questions, send me an email and I'd be happy to address: rwaller@homegrouprealty.ca

Hi Scottsie, this article was is 100% original content written by Beth and I. It’s been provided at the same time every month since 2018 and we choose the topic, without GT influence in any way. I agree that timing was interesting on this one, but it’s purely coincidence! Have a great day.

What do you think of unpaid internships?

Many years ago I had a post secondary education that ended in an unpaid internship in downtown Toronto at an advertising agency. Subway fare, lunch and other expenses were all on me, but it was a trade off for “real world experience”. within 3 months someone quit and I was offered a full time position, which started my career. I believe it’s a great way to get a foot in the door and show your skills to a potential employer.
