Latest Renderings on Nobu Residences

I'm proud of the development that the city is making. Having sold units in some of the city's premiere low rise and high rise buildings, I'm continually impressed by developers who are aiming to represent global brands. Whether its Lifetime with Bisha, or Madison with Nobu or Freed with Thompson... the city is changing. Some would say we are losing our identity. I beg to differ. We are becoming an iconic global destination. Nothing short of a world class economic and cultural centre. The immigration from other countries and migration of the best and brightest Canadians is proof of that.

Nobu... have you been to Malibu, Las Vegas or Bahamas and witnessed what Nobu represents? Please get informed about Nobu. And if you're interested in learning more about this development, please reach out. Units will sell fast. To those of you who have already asked... pease take a look at these renderings and then lets plan to discuss price, floorplans and the like when available. This is the most anticipated launch of the year for a new development. 700 units. Likely to sell in no time at all. Thanks to Elliott Taube and Madison Group and the folks involved in this project. Excited to see more!

Why Charles Kabouth will make an impact on the condo scene...

Yesterday I met with clients who recently purchased a condo at the Thompson Residences. Everything has been going great for them, but they verbatim said "I have a bone to pick with Lavelle". For those of you who don't know, Lavelle is a rooftop poolside resto-lounge that is all the stir right now in Central King West and sits above The Thompson Residences. On Saturday night, I was walking past Lavelle and saw the droves of young "up and comers" all bargaining their way past the line to mingle with the who's who. Unfortunately, the real audience for this type of venue is finding poor execution on reservations, lack of service and overall clumsiness on the part of Lavelle.

Here's the thing... managing that type of venue, and executing a lifestyle condo residence geared towards young professionals is a tightrope walk. Service, cache and value is something that city's like New York, LA and Hong Kong have been very profitable attaching a price tag to. In Toronto, we've seen many attempts including Soho House, Shangri-La, Thompson Residences and more.

Enter Charles Kabouth and Bisha. 

In 2017, the new player to the condo game is a veteran of the lifestyle and nightlife game. No one in Toronto has done what Charles Kabouth has done. Charles' tenure as a nightlife impresario includes epic success at The Guvernment and a host of other nightclubs. His vision for Cabana Pool Bar has left many nay sayers simply saying "Wow, I didn't think Toronto could do that." His restaurants have continued to grow in popularity with names like Weslodge, Figo and America on everyone's hot list.

So what does this mean when it comes to condos?

I've written in the past about the Manhattanization of Toronto. The wealth and influence that is pouring into Toronto continues to drive demand for high-end luxury in all facets. Do you remember when Yorkvillle was the only place to purchase a condo over $800/sq. ft? Now they are popping up all over Entertainment District, King West, Financial Corridor, Queen West and even Leslieville. Buyers are craving Walkscores of 100 and the opportunity to participate in a true luxury lifestyle condo is coveted.

Bisha, will be younger and hipper then The Four Seasons but more refined then Fashion House. 

Bisha is going to be a landmark residence. It will be the best execution of young money. For example, I think of a young fashion mogul client of mine when I think of Bisha. I think of my partying Bay Street Investment bankers when I think of Bisha. I think of my client who distributes wine when I think of Bisha. Bisha is going to be a place where you can party and walk home... err I mean take the elevator.

The difference will be in the management. Ink Entertainment is a partner in Bisha. They were the turnaround force behind America when the Trump Residences had a failing restaurant. Bisha will have the right players involved in the management. The construction side of Bisha will be Lifetime developments. They have built reputable buildings including Victory and Four Seasons Residences. The quality of construction and the delivery of product will be well executed.

The execution of the marketing and entertainment.... well that will be phenomenal. Bisha will become a place to be seen. It will be where the who's who are and it will offer great views of the city skyline from its rooftop pool and terrace. When the Leafs are doing well, or TIFF is happening, or Mastercard Fashion Week, Bisha will be where people want to be.

Bisha will be pricey but there is a market.

The market for high-end, badge-factor condos continues to grow. We can see this both with sale prices and average rents. Rents for example at The Thompson Residences are over $4/ft

Getting in at the ground level is an opportunity that exists right now. Exclusive listings that we have available:

Giselle Model: 1 Bedroom + Den 651 Sq Ft South View with Balcony
Daria Model:  2 Bedroom + Study 944 Sq Ft with Balcony

Always happy to talk real estate!

6 Things to ask when Interviewing a listing agent

Do you trust your Builder? 6 builders and our experience with them...

DO YOU TRUST YOUR BUILDER: Insight on Toronto Builders

A really interesting thing happens when you buy a pre-construction property. You as the buyer, enter into a relationship with the developer and give them a large sum of money along with a future guarantee to deliver another large(r) set of money. At that time, the developer says "don't call me, I'll call you". What I mean by that, is they basically ask you to stay away from the site and wait until you hear from them. 

Let's face it... builders have one major criteria, profitability. They are delivering a product to you where your involvement is a cost to them. So what do you do? How do you manage risk? When you buy a property that hasn't been built yet... how do you know you're not going to get screwed? 

The truth is there are no guarantees. There is a lot of pressure on the buyer, and the developer, contractually has a very one-sided agreement. The risk is yours as the buyer. With that being said, there are some GREAT options out there in terms of pre-construction developments. What I want to do in this blog, is not talk about current inventory, but instead reference a few of our success stories and write about the builders that were involved.

So, without further adieu... here are 6 builders that we have dealt with personally, and the intricacies of each purchase. 

1. GREAT GULF - Charlie Condos

Our client bought this property at a high discounted rate. Charlie was looking to break construction and needed to secure construction financing (see blog on when to buy pre-construction) and our clients got a great deal. What's interesting about this purchase process was the delivery and the quality of construction. At the time of delivery, my client had nothing but good things to say. Great Gulf really did a good job of post sales too. There was nothing for them to be anxious about. 

2. STREETCAR - The Carnaby and The Carlaw

If anyone gets the highest score... its Streetcar. They are a boutique builder that you need to get familiar with. They build quality vs quantity. This has held true with our clients at The Carnaby (Queen West) and The Carlaw (Queen East). Our client at The Carnaby had a timely registration. There were some interesting quirks along the way, but there always is. Streetcar even wrapped a giant bow on the unit at The Carlaw. Clients appreciate the timely post sales care as well.

3. FREED - Thompson Residences

Overall, very happy with Freed's latest delivery of one of their biggest undertakings to date. Clients who purchased a bachelor unit as well as clients who purchased a 2 bedroom unit were both happy. There was one huge issue though. Clients purchased a storage locker and when they received it, 30% of the locker was unusable because of plumbing running through it. Clients were obviously upset, but it all got sorted out eventually. This condo is going to register any moment. Let's see how it goes once all the dust settles!

4. MONARCH - Ultra and Legacy

There was one major issue with the original agreement and the delivery of the unit. Clients bought a townhouse where the elevation to the main door to the terrace now had a step up. It was written into the agreement without having any steps. Client was  upset. This obstructed the flow of the floor plan and the overall usability of the space. Client realized that it was out of his control and agreed to the change. Monarch did a good job delivering and values have increased well in this building.

5. CONSERVATORY GROUP - Port Union Village

This is an interesting one. I live in a house I purchased from Conservatory Group and I'm quite happy with the overall property. I should point out this was not a condo purchase. General feedback from my neighbours and people around me is that the properties were well delivered. Interestingly, the developer had the properties sitting for some time with HVAC already put in. So my 6 year old home has a 10 year old furnace that we are replacing. Always check the little things (or ask your Realtor). Conservatory Group is what I would call a middle of the road builder. Nothing great, nothing bad. Overall a strong "satisfied" feeling.

6. TRIDEL - Metrogate and 300

Tridel is the tried, tested and true name when it comes to condominium communities in Toronto. Their tagline in "built for life" and I'm proud to say that my mother lives in a Tridel building. I feel she's safe. There's a quality when you go through the common elements. Theres a high level of integrity in the construction. If you buy Tridel you should be happy with the result.

So... you think there's a pre-construction or assignment property you're interested in? What's next? Please consult someone who knows this market. Find someone who can guide you through what to do and what not to do. If you'd like to chat with us, leave a message below or call us any time.

As always, happy to help.

Let's all sigh about Urbancorp...

For years we all knew of Urbancorp's reputation. Their delivery of new condo units to the market has been sub par for a while. Some of the alarming factors that clients and colleagues have seen:

1. Urbancorp transferred Kings Club from a condo development to a rental development:

One of my clients asked me to help her with a purchase there. She was crushed to hear about the change but she was refunded her deposit. It was unexpected but there were signs. Kings Club is a far way from completion. Who knows what will happen next there.

2. Delays on Delays with Queen and Lisgar projects.

A close colleague and friend sold many units at Epic on Triangle Park (48 Abell Street). He's gone so far as to write the mayor and councillor Adam Vaughan about this epically poor situation. Clients have been tied in limbo not knowing about final registration for a long time. Urbancorp seems to be pushing registration back more then double or triple the length of other developers.

3. Westside Gallery Lofts poor construction

A client of mine who relocated to Vancouver bought one of theses lofts pre-construction. She had done this before her and I were connected. Exposed concrete and ducts is supposed to give new construction lofts artistic flare. Unfortunately in this case these lofts received an unfinished feeling. This condo has had its growing pains. Does anyone remember those horrid pastel hallways? Slowly getting its act together, this one seems to have found its pace. My client has been renting her unit out for the past few years. She's had the good, the bad and the ugly... but that's a story for another time.

4. Trouble on the East End

Urbancorp's move into Leslieville has had mixed reviews. A great agent in the area asked me about her assignment listing. I asked her when it may register. She said probably end of 2015. Guess what? Yep you guessed it... still not registered. This is a trend with this developer.

So now what does it mean that they've filed for Bankruptcy protection? The good news is that the receivership will be handled by large financial institutions. They don't want the bad press or the bad financial problems of half built inventory to sell off. They are going to help in the construction completion of these properties and other parts of the Urbancorp portfolio. 

Canadian lending practices are favourably conservative and help to manage volatility in a crazy Toronto and GTA market. In this case, the extreme poor construction practices will get levelled in the long run. In the words of one Ken McLachlan "Relax it will be ok."

But that being said, there is a lot of due diligence when buying pre-construction. Here's two quick tips:

1. Do as much independent research as possible.

2. Consult someone who understands Tarion, Assignments, Levies, Deposits, Floor plans, Exposures and very importantly the lay of the land for builders.

As always... we are happy to help.

Assignments: The What, Where, When, Who and How

My Recent Experience with Assignment Condo Investors… What you need when buying condos for the purpose of investment is quite simple. You need a looped in advisor who can skim all the fat away and get you a real deal. My current favourite deals are good assignments in good buildings with good floorplans. Why? Assignments are a glitch in the system. The near perfect exposure via MLS of resale listings allow for the absorption rate to be high and prices to be based on standard rules of supply and demand. There aren’t “deals to be had” on MLS. If its priced too low, the market is efficient and the end price moves up. If its priced too high, it sits around until sellers become realistic and the end price moves down. But what about assignments? What if I could tell you that a desperate seller, who will have trouble closing his unit, is willing to take a hit on price and sell at a loss to walk away from his deal? What if I could tell you that I know of a property that is not on MLS, and is being sold at 2012 prices in 2015? What if I could tell you that a couple going through a divorce has split all assets except for a pre-construction condo that they are dying to off load? These are all stories that are very true and very real. Right now, I’m helping a great couple buy their first assignment condo. They are asking a lot of questions and I wanted to share this experience with you: 1. What is the current market value of this unit? The current market value of this unit is $30,000 higher then what you will be paying. Because this property isn’t registered it can’t be sold through conventional means. The lack of exposure to the market is creating this downward pressure on sale price. 2. How much will it cost me monthly to carry this unit? This is a 2 part answer. Until registration, the cost will be $1400. This is your occupancy fee. Post registration, your mortgage, maintenance and property tax will come up to $1547 based on the terms of the mortgage we discussed. 3. How much will I be able to rent this unit for? Immediately upon closing the assignment, you will be able to rent this property for $1650. (Immediately based on the terms negotiated by your realtor.) 4. What will it cost to close this unit? You will have to pay the following closing costs: Municipal Levies, Legal Fees, Land Transfer Tax and HST. The HST you pay will be given back to you in total. You will have to pay $20,000 in HST which you will receive back in approximately 4 months. Your other closing costs work out to roughly 4% of the purchase price. 5. How much money do I need to purchase this unit? You need somewhere around 25% of the purchase price. That number is based on down payment plus closing costs. Part of your down payment will be paid to the seller (assignor). The rest of your down payment and your closing costs will be paid to the builder upon final registration. 6. Why should I buy this assignment and not invest my money in something else? The buying opportunity is great here. Mainly because you are buying it below market value! You’re building a great piece of equity right now. You’re also walking through the unit and seeing it first hand. Your also able to negotiate heavily with a seller despite it being a sellers market. You also have the benefit of a TARION warranty. You also have the opportunity to be cash flow positive month to month. You’re also buying a floorplan that is very good. You’re also buying a coveted building that will outperform the market averages. The list goes on and on. But the main thing is your buying a unit that is worth the assignment price + $30,000. 7. What risks am I exposed to? There is the chance of a prolonged occupancy period. There is also the standard risks with all investment properties including tenant issues and repair costs. In the long run though, you actually can not go wrong. You will make money. The key is holding power and long term thinking. 8. What would be next? I have an agreement to Assign. We would submit this to the sellers representative and negotiate the hell out of this deal. Upon acceptance we would deliver funds and let lawyers close the assignment. This couple is taking a leap of faith in my abilities, but all of my statements are based on strong research and real data. Do yourself a favour this up coming year… invest in real estate. You’ll be thanking me! If this couple can do it, you can too. And as always, if you want to talk real estate, we are happy to help!

Trudeau has made a platform commitment to smart track and further transit funding for Toronto . This is one of the most important issues for Torontonians.

Trudeau has made a platform commitment to smart track and further transit funding for Toronto . This is one of the most important issues for Torontonians. Hopefully everything goes the way it needs to go.

GotStyle. Dress Better. Do Better.

We want to send a quick shout out to @msgotstyle who was in our training centre this week talking about dressing better and doing better. Great information on men’s business attire including canvas vs. fusing / playing with prints / avoiding boxy fits / blazer lengths / collar tricks and more. She is an encyclopedia of information on mastering style. We learned something. Thanks Melissa!! Check out their two amazing stores at 60 Bathurst and in the #distillerydistrict . You won’t be disappointed! If you’re an office manager, talk to Moe and get them into your company 👍🏼 #Toronto #torontofashion #torontolife #lovetoronto #downtownto #downtowntoliving #sixside #the6ix (at The Ravi Singh Team at ReMax Hallmark)
