Life is an Odyssey in Grimsby

Waterfront condominium and townhome community coming soon from Rosehaven

Each of us has our own individual style and views, but the water calls us home. Rosehaven is poised to bring luxury waterfront living with Odyssey. A brilliant 20-storey condominium complemented by 2 and 3-storey condo townhomes launching this summer by the shores of Lake Ontario in Grimsby.

Known as the gateway to Niagara, the gorgeous Grimsby waterfront is no longer the neighbourhood’s own secret. New home buyers have discovered the wonderful lifestyle and beautiful surroundings of this charming historic town. Set amidst everything that makes the Niagara Region appealing, Grimsby is a vibrant and growing town with a lively arts-and-culture scene, shopping, dining and more.

Here you will discover waterfront parks and conservation areas, with miles of tree-lined trails to explore. The Lookout Trail in the Beamer Conservation Area offers panoramic view of Grimsby and the lake and leads to Upper Beamer Falls. Coronation Park has the Lions Community Pool with a playground and splash pad as well as the Forty Mile Creek Trail, and a fun summer festival event called Happening at the Forty. The Bruce Trail runs through Beamer Valley, over the Forty Mile Creek and up to the escarpment where it has four lookouts offering an excellent lake views. Odyssey residents will love the Waterfront Trail at their door.

Odyssey’s 20-storey high-rise condominium residence will feature amazing views of Lake Ontario and the Niagara Escarpment. Condo suites offer a choice of lakeview or Escarpment views overlooking this spectacular neighbourhood where the Escarpment meets the Lake.

Residents can enjoy the carefree ‘lock-and-leave condo lifestyle with brand new amenities, and no upkeep or maintenance chores. Feel comfortable going away on vacation without worrying about your home.

Because Rosehaven knows that everyone’s life story is unique, the innovative builder is creating a wide selection of condo suite designs, with spacious open concept interiors with contemporary finishes to complement your personal style.

The condo townhomes at Odyssey are fresh and contemporary both inside and out – Rosehaven designs not see before. Three-storey townhomes will feature rooftop patios with views of the Escarpment. Two-storey townhomes are set on the second and third floor above ground floor retail and will have views of the lake.

Living in Grimsby with the lake right across the street feels like another world. It’s hard to believe that it’s only 30 minutes to Oakville, Burlington and St. Catharines.

A few minutes away are world famous wineries to tour, beautiful Niagara On The Lake and all the attractions of Niagara. The new Grimsby GO Station opening soon will connect to the Lakeshore West line that runs all the way from Niagara to Toronto’s Union Station.

Those who love waterfront condo living surrounded by natural beauty are urged to register online for Odyssey right away. For more information, visit www.myodysseylife.com

Record October 2017 for new condo sales

Record October 2017 for new condo sales

Average price for available new detached homes rises to $1,548,888

New construction home sales soared in the GTA in the month of October, primarily driven by sales of multi-family homes, condo apartments in highrise and midrise buildings and stacked townhomes, the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD) announced November 24.

There were 5,377 new homes sold in October, according to Altus Group, BILD’s official source for new home market intelligence. About 91 per cent of them (4,884 units) were multi-family homes and only 9 per cent (493) were lowrise single-family homes such as detached and semi-detached houses and townhomes. Condo sales for October were 81 per cent above the 10-year average of 2,697, and the highest October yet recorded, while lowrise sales were 64 per cent below the 10-year average of 1,388.

As of the end of October, 39,476 new homes have been sold in the GTA in 2017, 82 per cent of them condo apartments in highrise and midrise buildings and stacked townhomes.

“October data shows that the new homebuyer is left with very little choice when it comes to purchasing a new home,” said BILD president and CEO Bryan Tuckey.

“Provincial intensification policy has our members building more high and midrise dwellings making housing choices a challenge. The cost of a single-family home is out of reach for many consumers pushing them to buy a condo over a house. As a result we are seeing record-breaking condo sales and higher prices this year for new lowrise homes.”

While supply of new housing increased again in October and reached 12,500 units, it is still well below what is considered a healthy level. Supply of new housing is typically measured by the number of new homes available for purchase in builders’ inventories at the end of the month. At the end of October, there were 9,308 multi-family homes and 3,192 single-family homes available in the GTA.

“Demand for newly-built condominium apartments is being fueled by three key buyer groups – small investors who have become the de facto providers of new rental housing supply in the GTA; end user buyers who might prefer a single-family home but are seeking out more affordable options; and the more traditional end users who value the lifestyle and amenities of well-located projects,” said Patricia Arsenault, Altus Group’s executive vice president of research consulting services.

Prices of available new homes in October increased slightly for both single-family lowrise homes and multi-family homes. The average for available new single-family homes was $1,217,428 up from $1,204,829 in September, and 29.8 per cent above last October’s average price of $937,689. The average price for available new detached homes was $1,548,888 and the average for available new townhomes was $995,571.

Meanwhile the average price of available new condo apartments in highrise and midrise buildings and stacked townhomes was $677,456 in October, up from September’s $661,188. The average price per square foot was $791 and the average unit size was 857 square feet.

Home Realty: Townhomes Are A Popular House Alternative

Latest News


Home Realty: Townhomes Are A Popular House Alternative

They’re spacious and private, but cheaper than detached

As the prospect of purchasing a detached home gets farther out of reach for most GTA homebuyers, townhouses are becoming an increasingly popular ownership option.

Townhouses tend to be more affordable than detached homes and they represent a more palatable alternative for those who don’t fancy the idea of living in a highrise or midrise condo. Townhomes offer the space and privacy of detached homes, but at a relatively lower price point.

Traditionally, townhouses have been two- or three-storey structures, some with basements and some without, with at least three housing units per building that share sidewalls with their neighbouring homes. These townhouses usually have a frontyard and backyard.

But as affordability has become more of a concern for buyers across the spectrum, other forms of townhomes have emerged that enable owners to still live in ground-oriented homes but not have to pay the higher prices that traditional towns command these days.

Enter the stacked townhouse, a housing type that’s been expanding exponentially of late across the GTA. These units are stacked vertically, with two to four units per structure. They may have a front or backyard, a patio or a rooftop terrace.

There are also back-to-back towns, which share rear walls and a sidewall with other units. These units have exterior spaces only in the front or on the rooftop. Then there are stacked back-to-back townhouses: stacked units that share a sidewall as well as a rear wall, with a front or rooftop exterior space.

Parking at townhouse complexes can vary and include above-grade, underground or private garages that are attached or detached from the homes.

Towns are built on a variety of lots, whether it’s infill urban developments in the heart of established neighbourhoods, at the base of condo complexes, or projects in locations that might have in years past been earmarked for detached home communities (builders are developing townhomes in order to hit density targets set out in the provincial growth plan).

Townhouse projects offer different types of ownership options: freehold and condo. With a freehold home, the buyer owns the home itself and the plot of land it sits on. With a condo townhome, the purchaser only owns the interior of the unit and the lot that the structure sits on is owned collectively by all of the unit owners.

With freehold ownership, owners may not have to pay a monthly maintenance fee — although some have fees that cover basic grounds maintenance — and there are often no rules dictating how the property should be maintained. If so, owners can add elements like decks or gardens and paint their home without requiring approval from the condo corporation. The flip side to not contributing to a reserve fund is that the owners must bear the full cost of any repairs that may be required, big or small.

With condo towns, all maintenance work (landscaping, snow removal, exterior repairs) is taken care of via maintenance fees and there is consistency in how the units in the complex are maintained, keeping property values at more or less the same level. The drawback with condos is that owners might end up paying fees for amenities they don’t use, such as a pool or gym.

Regardless of the ownership structure, townhouses are generally regarded as a good investment. Not only is the rent cheaper than it would be with a detached home, but the townhouse comes with many of the same benefits of a traditional house (privacy, outdoor space, ground-oriented living and fewer neighbours), making it far easier to secure tenants.

Debbie Cosic, CEO and founder of In2ition Realty, has worked in all facets of the real estate industry for over 25 years. She has sold and overseen the sale of over $15 billion worth of real estate and, with Debbie at the helm, In2ition has become one of the fastest-growing and most innovative new home and condo sales companies. In2ition has received numerous awards from the Building Industry and Land Development Association and the National Association of Home Builders.

Demand for new homes continues to outpace supply

Demand for new homes continues to outpace supply

Demand for new homes continues to outpace supply

In April, demand for new homes in the GTA continued to outpace supply and prices for all types of available new homes were up significantly, the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD) announced May 24, 2017.

There were 4,680 new homes sold in the GTA last month, an increase of 7 per cent from a year ago according to Altus Group, BILD’s official source for new home market intelligence. Year-to-date sales of new homes in the GTA have been exceptionally strong. In the first four months of this year, 17,977 new homes were sold, 24 per cent more than during the same period in 2016 and 48 per cent above the 10-year average.

Meanwhile, the supply of new homes, the number of homes available to buyers in builders’ inventories at the end of the month, continued its unabated decline. At the end of April, there were only 9,387 new homes available to buyers across the entire GTA. This is the first time that overall inventory has dropped below 10,000 units since BILD and Altus Group began tracking such data more than a decade ago. A year ago, there were 21,056 new homes available for purchase in builders’ inventories.

“Builders are not able to keep up with the demand for new housing,” said BILD president and CEO Bryan Tuckey. “The product that builders are able to bring to the market is quickly purchased and prices for all types of new homes keep increasing as a result.”

In April, the average price of available new lowrise single-family homes, which includes detached, semi-detached and townhomes, was $1,212,297. That is 40 per cent more than the average price of such homes in April 2016.

Last month, the average asking price for available new detached homes in the GTA reached $1,810,232, while the average for available semi-detached was $856,036 and for townhomes was $946,496.

Prices of available new multi-family homes, condo apartments in highrise and midrise buildings and stacked townhomes, were up nearly 24 per cent from a year ago. The average price of available units hit $570,226 in April, with the average price per square foot at $685, and the average unit size 832 square feet.

Prices of available condo apartments were up due to both an increase in average unit size and a substantial increase in average price per square foot. Average price per square foot was up 17.5 percent from a year ago.

“The declining number of new homes available to purchase is not a question of less product being brought to market,” says Patricia Arsenault, Altus Group’s executive vice president of Research Consulting Services. “There were more than 11,000 units in projects opened in the first four months of this year – that’s about one-third higher than the average for the previous two years.”

Approximately 70 per cent of the new homes that were purchased in the GTA in April (3,265 units) were multi-family condo apartments in highrise, midrise or stacked townhomes, while 30 per cent (1,415) were new single-family lowrise homes including detached, semi-detached and townhomes.

Single-family lowrise sales were down 39 per cent from a year ago while sales of multi-family condo apartments were up 61 per cent from April 2016.

Inspired living at Frenchman’s Bay in Pickering

Madison Group has created residential communities in highly desirable locations across the GTA, building thousands of quality homes of lasting design and value. Madison will continue the tradition in their newest community in Pickering at Frenchman’s Bay. Located on the southern end of Liverpool Road, steps away from the waterfront, will be a collection of sophisticated, contemporary townhomes and detached singles nestled in a well-established, family-friendly neighbourhood.

The architecture will feature contemporary facades of brick, stone and stucco with details that create a distinctively modern look. Contemporary doors and large windows will add the finishing touches to the streetscape.

Detached two-storey homes of approximately 2,700 square feet with double-car garages will feature four bedrooms, 3 1/2 bathrooms and ample room for families to cook, live and relax in style. Townhomes of 1,910 to 2,215 square feet will offer private single-car garages at grade, generous three- or four-bedroom floorplans on three levels, plus a basement. Step out your front door to the revitalized public park with a playground, a basketball court, seating area and a walking trail.

Pickering’s City Hall, Main Central Library and Recreation Complex are just a short drive away offering amenities and enriching programs for the whole family. Located near Highway 401 is Pickering Town Centre, an approximately 1-million-square-foot regional shopping centre with over 200 retailers, restaurants and services. An enclosed convenient pedestrian bridge connects Pickering Town Centre to the Pickering GO Transit station, a major transit hub, with all day train service on the Lakeshore East line, making commuting a breeze.

Frenchman’s Bay offers a superb range of natural, recreational, heritage, arts and cultural attractions for residents and visitors. It is the spectacular natural landscape and abounding recreational opportunities that make Frenchman’s Bay a coastal haven for outdoor enthusiasts. At the southern tip of Liverpool Road, past the cafés, speciality shops and fine restaurants of The Nautical Village is Millennium Square, a public square where open-air concerts are often staged in the summer. You can’t miss Frenchman’s Bay Marina and the significant presence of boaters and sailing activity in the surrounding waters during the summer months. To the southeast is Beachfront Park with its elevated boardwalk and beautiful views across Lake Ontario. Here, you can settle in for a picnic on the beach while the children enjoy the splash pad or playground. If you’re in the mood to exercise or explore, then head into the Waterfront Trail system that encircles Frenchman’s Bay and runs east and west alongside the Lake’s shoreline. Three major trails – perfect for cycling, running or walking – traverse protected wetlands and woodlots, bluffs, beaches and expansive conservation areas.

Don’t miss the opportunity to own and live in a naturally beautiful, inspired village by the bay in a well constructed and attractive home with nearby conveniences to meet the lifestyle demands of modern families. Pre-construction sales will commence summer 2017.

Exciting times ahead

Lindvest has had an incredibly productive year doing what they do best: building homes. Seven of their projects are busily under construction all across the GTA: Aurora, Brampton, Markham, Newcastle, Toronto, Newmarket and Richmond Hill. From detached homes, elegant townhomes, and highrise condos, the Lindvest projects come in all shapes and sizes. But Lindvest certainly isn’t a company that rests on its laurels. Several exciting new projects are on the horizon.

NORTH OAKVILLE

The first comes to the wonderful town of Oakville.

Generous lot sizes range from 36, 38, 41, 43 and 45 feet, meaning there is something for every size of family and every homeowner’s desire. Plans range from 2500 to over 4000 square feet with elevations that cater to all tastes, whether traditional or more contemporary. Destined to be a beautiful community, North Oakville is tentatively set to launch its first phase in the summer of 2017.

GRACEFIELDS

The Lindvest community Gracefields in Newcastle has been growing for several years now and the builder is proud to announce a new addition to the family: The Towns at Gracefields. An enclave of just 37 townhomes, these sought-after residences range in size from just under 1,500 to just over 2,000 square feet, offering space to start, grow and expand. It’s an exciting time in Newcastle as the community is prospering. Be sure to be part of the excitement when The Towns at Gracefields are released in the fall of 2017.

AURORA GLEN

Beginning a few years ago with the incredibly successful launch of Aurora Glen, the momentum continues with an exclusive collection of 11 condominium townhomes known as The Enclave at Aurora Glen. These stunning townhomes are slated for release in late fall 2017. One only needs to take a look at the construction of the first two phases of Aurora Glen to know the excitement of owning in this incredible town.

After the tremendous success of Park Avenue, the first neighbourhood at Central Park, Losani Homes is excited to release Madison, the second neighbourhood, this spring.

The townhomes at Madison boast modern elevations with a dramatic colour palette, glass doors and smooth brick. A variety of layouts and square footage will be offered, making Madison a perfect destination for any new homebuyer.

Even people with unique accessibility needs can be accommodated. Losani Homes is proud to offer barrier-free living including a full outfitting for elevators or a roughed in shaft for future installation. The community will also feature a five-acre Eco-Trail Promenade connecting residents to the 10-kilometre East Mountain Trail Loop, including the Eramosa Karst Conservation Area and the Bruce Trail. The 1,100 foot long paved Promenade offers access to 1,300 feet of pathways for pedestrian use and enjoyment. The trail will be modified to accommodate wheelchairs, as well as baby strollers and those belonging to bike clubs. Nature is truly accessible for every resident at Central Park.

“At Central Park, we are committed to working one-on-one with each home purchaser with special mobility needs to ensure that the home meets all their accessibility requirements. In fact, we have completed 20 customized accessible homes for customers with special needs,” said Fred Losani, CEO of Losani Homes.

Future phases of Central Park will also offer accessibility options for barrier-free living, as well as many future Losani Homes communities.

Losani Homes offers a sophisticated program and boutique buying process. Those interested can register online to receive emails with important community information, including the aerial site plan, amenities brochure, site plan, floorplans and the premium features and finishes. Those interested are required to attend a VIP Preview where they will receive a brochure package and an informative presentation. Later in the week, those who attended the preview are able to book their purchasing appointment conveniently online, and then attend the appointment on the weekend in a relaxing atmosphere with their own Losani sales representative.

Most builders use the line-up method, which creates chaos and is quite demanding on the prospective homeowners. With Losani’s boutique, online method, interested buyers are able to book their appointment from the comfort of their own home.

Madison will offer three-storey back-to-back townhomes and three- and two-storey townhomes, with prices starting in the low $300,000s.
