This 1920s house in Toronto's #1 ranked family neighbourhood has some magnificent architectural details, as well as behind-the-scenes updates of major systems. The asking price is $1,395,000 - with five bedrooms and a very large lot, it's a great opportunity for a large (or growing) family! #toronto #realestate

From drainage in dog parks to overcrowding on the street cars, there are big infrastructure challenges in the growing downtown densities we applaud.

Scarcity and value in real estate
Not just communities like Cupertino... Cities on both coasts (San Francisco, Vancouver, Boston) often have strong physical boundaries that effectively force land values up.
Toronto's Green Belt zone also acts like a physical boundary - it limits sprawl and forces developers back into the city core.
The secret of real estate values
When folks from around the world want to send their kids to the local school, prices will go up.
It’s hard to believe sometimes that all the money that comes from 1s and 0s can be used to buy real physical things, and that all those things, made from sweat and rocks and careful craftsmen’s fingers, can be so relatively cheap. But this has become the central fact of the global economy.

Why rising home prices in Toronto are a good thing
As for houses, if prices are rising, it is partly the result of the success of the provincially imposed green belt around the city, which has slowed sprawl and made it hard to throw up cheap new homes on open fields in the city’s far reaches. Higher prices in the centre, meanwhile, are a product of the premium that residents put on being close to the heart of the city, another great sign of urban vitality.
