Saskatoon home seller has one strange pricing strategy

This image is a screenshot taken from the Saskatoon MLS system that displays the price history of a listed property. The home seller is clearly confused. He has adjusted his price 16 times including 9 reductions and 7 increases. That’s right. 7 increases. Oddly, the asking price is still higher than it was the day the home was introduced to the Saskatoon real estate market nearly 5 months ago.

Like almost everything else these days, this MLS history report reminded me of the volatility of stock market. I only wish that my investments were still priced higher than they were five months ago. 🙂

Norm Fisher: One on one with RE Revealed in a Bubble Gum Interview

Norm Fisher: One on one with RE Revealed in a Bubble Gum Interview

I’m not big on interviews. Perhaps that’s a bit odd for someone who is the “media spokesperson” for his company. One of the biggest challenges is the deadlines. Reporters always seem to call about an hour before they’d like to see you so you have to act quickly, and often rearrange other scheduled activities to get it done. I do it because it’s part of the job but I rarely have fun with them.


It was an entirely different story when Lani Anglin-Rosales asked me to do a “bubble gum interview” with RE Revealed. Her blog is one of my favorites and I really enjoy her intelligent sense of humour. It was an honour to be asked and she was gracious enough to give me “as much time” as I needed.

96 days later, the interview is here. 🙂


Lani, thanks for the invitation to RE Revealed and for your patience. I really did enjoy this one.

Smallest house in Toronto on the market

Smallest house in Toronto on the marketThe “smallest house in Toronto,” measuring just 300 square feet is being offered for sale at $173,000. That’s $577 per square foot.


Sitting on a narrow lot which measures in at 7.25 feet by 113.67 feet, this little charmer has been completely renovated from top to bottom. It features a living room, a kitchen, a bedroom, a bathroom and a decent back yard.


I was most impressed by the initiative taken by the listing agents, Christina Lopes and Louise Ruggiero of Sutton Group Security Real Estate Brokerage. These two go-getters have enhanced their listing to the fullest on MLSOnline including a sales brochure and a virtual tour which offers eighteen still images and four 360 degree panoramic images.


It’s hard to find an agent who will provide such a rich presentation on house ten times the size.

The virtual tour for the property is here.


Tip of the hat to Matthew Collinge of Vancouver who originally posted about this property on his blog.
