Catching up with Ramsin Khachi #2 – Hardwood vs. Vinyl

Palace Place

Hardwood flooring has become a standard for condominiums these days. However, as longtime condo owners will appreciate, wood is not an ideal material for condominium environments, as it is susceptible to humidity and water. It is also not ideal for soundproofing.

Today, Ramsin Khachi and I had discussed viable solutions for condominium flooring, the best and most interesting being vinyl flooring.

Vinyl flooring has come a long way. It is no longer the vinyl tile from your grandmother’s house. It can look just like wood, offers the durability and versatility that wood cannot, and comes in a full spectrum of options from any wood type to even stone finishes.

Vinyl flooring costs about $3 per square foot, which is much less than traditional wood flooring.

When choosing vinyl flooring, it is critical to look at the overall thickness of the product and the wear layer (the top layer) quality to ensure durability and longevity. It is best to have the supplier of the product install it as well instead of a third party. This will help with any potential warranty concerns.

By far, one of the best choices for vinyl flooring is the LVT (Luxury Vinyl Tile) collection by Interface, a company recognized not only for its high quality product but for its commitment to the environment as well.

Catching up with Ramsin Khachi…

As a realtor, staying on top of the latest trends in interior design helps me guide my clients in making the right decisions and investments. Today, I caught up with my friend Ramsin Khachi, one of Toronto’s top design experts.

We spoke about the importance of sound proofing when renovating your condo and compliance with condo rules. Sound complaints have become a major, costly issue for condos. When tiling, there is a new product called Schluter Ditra-sound, which is specifically designed for ceramic and stone tile installations. This innovative new product prevents tile cracking, offers superior waterproofing, and helps prevent sound transmission.

Condos today are becoming smaller and smaller, with these confined spaces, opportunities to renovate to create more space are becoming very difficult. Your realtor and design expert should be able to guide you to making innovative design solutions with impact while avoiding structural obstacles and complex condo rules.

Investing in a well thought out plan and “road map” for your renovation may take some extra effort and cost, but the money that you spend in the beginning pays back big in the end.

Recently, Ryan Serhant from Million Dollar Listing New York had met up with Luke Dalinda in New York City to discuss some exciting opportunities.

“Seeing someone achieve the greatness that he has achieved yet remaining as genuine and as caring as he is is just awesome!”

Did you know Palace Place features stunning artwork in its common areas?

When I run the 47 floors at Palace Place, this is my cheering squad at the top! New condos in Toronto typically feature no-name, generic artwork. When Palace Place was built, Bramalea had asked North American interior design icon Alex Chapman to find some of the best artwork for the common areas. These enchanting, priceless pieces behind me were done by the renowned Dutch painter, Maya Wildevuur. One of the many reasons that Palace Place is the unrivalled flagship on Toronto’s waterfront.

Breaking News: Just Sold! Palace Place, Suite 703

Palace Place Special Announcement: Palace Place, 1 Palace Pier Court, Suite 703 sold for $1,210,000!

I have written to proudly announce that I have sold yet another residence at Palace Place by having just sold Suite 703 for $1,210,000 by having represented the seller.

Earlier, I had set the historic record price at Palace Place by having sold Suite 4001 for $1,980,000, or $700 per square foot, by having represented the seller. This achievement had allowed for a subsequent sale to achieve $831 per square foot!

Where else in Toronto can you get such fit and finish, such a spacious size, and such an enchanting view?

Sellers!

These marketing efforts have left me with several more buyers looking for similar Palace Place suites! In fact, they are ready to pay even more given the recognized value proposition Palace Place represents. If you have such a Palace Place suite, please call me ASAP!

Buyers take note!

In the condo world, newer is not better!
Do the math! This sale price of $609 per square foot is a bargain when new, inferior construction is charging up to $1,000 per square foot. Furthermore, this suite size in the downtown core would easily fetch $2,000 per square foot or more. Why buy the K-car when you can own the Mercedes-Benz?

Buyers want space, and, most importantly, buyers want quality. New construction fails to deliver these two key requirements. Palace Place offers unrivalled construction, spacious floor plans, 5-star amenities and services, and million dollar forever views that you cannot find in new buildings today!

Come see what Palace Place has to offer today!
