What happens with real estate transactions involving a home that has had this number of cannabis plants grown within it?

On October 17, 2018, it became legal to purchase small amounts of marijuana and grow up to four plants per residence (not per person) in Ontario. Nonetheless, the prospect of purchasing a home that has been used to grow marijuana may continue to provoke an emotional response from some buyers. As such, it’s important to understand whether this is a concern for real estate clients and to take appropriate steps to protect their interests.

Reality is that we are all ageing from the day we are born.  Yet ageism, unlike other “isms” like racism or sexism, is the last socially tolerable form of discrimination.

Ageism happens when people are defined, not by their personality, individuality or beliefs, but by their age.  Ageism occurs across all generations when age stereotypes are formed.  However, ageism is of particular concern for older adults who are often typecast as incompetent, incapable or a burden to society and end up marginalized as a result.

The number one mistake sellers make when listing a home for sale: They overprice it.

While you may think you can always lower the asking price if it doesn't sell, you'll actually miss out on buyers, lose opportunities to draw foot traffic, and risk sitting on the market for too long.

The easiest fix: Price your home right so it will sell quickly.

Let us help accurately compare current home sales in your area and propose your best asking price.

As your local agents, we're here to help.
