Welcome to the 3rd Annual MLS Awards. Last year's 2020 MLS Awards was one of my most popular blog posts of the year, and BlogTO found enough content in there to turn it into three different articles. If you're curious, the 2019 MLS Awards are still kicking around too. I started doing them because I was curious to see what the most expensive house that sold in Toronto on the MLS, then that made me wonder what the least expensive was. Then I wondered about...

I was curious to see what the most expensive house that sold in Toronto on the MLS was last year, as well as the least expensive. Same for condos. So I looked them up. Then I went down a bit of a curiosity rabbit hole and at the end I figured if I was curious, you might be too, so I'm sharing them on this blog post. Though TREB's MLS system covers a wide geographic area, the below are just for my main area of interest, the City of Toronto (aka the 416), unless noted otherwise. I'll... [read more]

There is a segment of the population that's rooting for a crash in Toronto housing prices. There are Facebook groups with bubble in their group name, and I often see comments with this angle on real estate Twitter. I get it.
