With the spring real estate market in Toronto starting to warm up and the weather finally showing signs of doing the same, so begins another season that is abuzz with activity amongst homeowners. Everywhere you turn it seems that new houses are popping up for sale in neighbourhoods across the city, while banks are busier than ever thanks to line ups of eager buyers waiting to get their mortgage pre-approvals.
While spring might still officially be a few weeks away, March is a great time to start getting ahead on your real estate goals. Whether it be preparing your house for sale on the open market, or looking into design trends that you want to incorporate in your next property purchase, there’s a lot of exciting things happening in the GTA in the month of March to help you on your way!
The National Home Show and Canada Blooms, being held at Toronto’s Direct Energy Centre from March 15th to 24th, is one such awesome place to start your planning. Hosting hundreds of exhibitors specializing in all areas of home design and real estate from décor trends to energy savings and landscaping, The National Home Show has it all. Also featuring celebrity guest speakers from HGTV Canada, dozens of contests and promotions, and endless free giveaways, this show is the most trusted resource for every home improvement project, inside and out. This year the Home Show has again partnered up with Canada Blooms, allowing visitors to also view acres of beautifully inspired gardens all in one place… a homeowner’s (or future homeowner’s) dream!
Working with RE/MAX, a trusted brand in real estate and a proud sponsor of the National Home Show, I have the opportunity to provide my valued clients with VIP tickets to this year’s festivities, allowing them to experience the best of the show’s red carpet treatment.
