How to approach a renovation? By Luke Dalinda

Catching up with Ramsin…

Today, we had talked about the common questions of how to approach renovations.
Here are our tips:
1) First meet with your realtor (That’s me!) to discuss the investment you wish to make. For example, renovating your current home or condo might be a good idea, but, in the end, you are still in the same space. With proper guidance, you can decide if that money is not better spent upgrading to a new, larger home or if the investment you intend to make will justify a proper return.
2) Meet with an experienced designer (That’s Ramsin) to properly plan and design your renovation to your budget. This can be broken into two parts, the creation of a timeless design and a thoughtful plan and process for the renovation. For example, you might renovate the bathroom not realizing that the shower liner needs to be replaced. These little things can be costly and experience is what saves you a lot of money in the end, even if it costs a little more in the beginning. Most importantly, you will know it was done right and done to last.
3) Do not follow the crowd. Ignore what your neighbor did, what you saw on TV, or what the Home Depot guy tried to sell you. Good design is timeless, and it considers space continuity, use, form, and function. In the early 2000s, everyone thought Jatoba wood floors were cool. Today, they are viewed like carpet. A good designer will help you avoid fads in favor of timeless solutions. 80-year old homes in Rosedale have stood the test of time better than homes from the 70s because of good timeless design.
4) Top quality is top quality, cheap is cheap, and fast is fast, but you cannot have all three. You also have to be aware of where you are going to compromise and accept those compromises. Maybe you will pick more modest cabinets in favor of a better countertop and better appliances.

Tip of the week: If you are living in a condo, consider installing a central humidification system. Not only is this a critical solution for the protection of your wood floors and cabinetry, but also, most importantly, it will serve your health the most!

Breaking News: Luke Dalinda sets another historic record price for Palace Place!

Palace Place Special Announcement: Palace Place, 1 Palace Pier Court, Suite 2210 sold for $710,000!

I have written to proudly announce that I have set another historic record price at Palace Place by having just sold Suite 2110 for $710,000 by having represented the seller.

A few weeks ago, I had set the high-rise record price for 10 suites at $810,000. The last low-rise sale price for a 10 suite was $617,000 in January 2017.

While the southern water view suites command premiums of over $100,000, this sale price represents a record price for the north end of the building.

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!

Sellers!

These marketing efforts have left me with several more buyers looking for large Palace Place suites! In fact, they are ready to pay even more given the recognized value proposition Palace Place represents. If you have a large 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 $511 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 views that you cannot find in new buildings today!

Come see what Palace Place has to offer today!

BREAKING NEWS: Just Sold, Palace Place, Suite 2910 for $20,000 over asking!

palace place 2910

Palace Place

Special Announcement: Palace Place, 1 Palace Pier Court, Suite 2910 sold for $547,000 ($20,000 above the $527,000 list price)!

I have written to proudly announce that I have set yet another multiple offer bid and record price at Palace Place by having just sold Suite 2910 for $547,000 by having represented the seller.

Last year, the 10 suites were selling for around $460,000, despite my having set record prices the year prior for well over the $500,000 mark.

There is very little inventory at Palace Place and many buyers looking to purchase in Toronto’s most luxurious waterfront condominium residence.

This is a great accomplishment for 10 suites at Palace Place. It clearly demonstrates the value of a realtor who knows his product, has key connections, and can walk his talk.

Buyers take note!

Do the math! This sale price of $392 per square foot is truly a bargain when new, inferior construction is charging $700 to $1,000 per square foot. 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 views that you cannot find in new buildings today!
