Some shady shit going on my hood now, some foreign family is buying up homes exclusively (private) for 200-300k over bidding war prices as long as you sell private on specific streets - i happen to be on one of them.

Let's say a bungalow will go for 1.3 through the normal process, they will give you 1.5 if you sell direct without listing with some INSANE deposits. I have the agent's card on my table (thanks to an anon CSIer) and i am looking at it every hour, they've already picked up a few homes in the last month all well over a mil for their "family members".

If you think they'd be interested in a spot by the new 412.... pass that card over my way asap

I hope this happens!

Although if this does happen, does that mean Markham will become a ghost town again?

The Chinese here in Canada aren't even in the top top 7% of wealth.

They are more like the bottom 10% of wealth.

But think about it, 1.3billion people and 10% are "rich".

Sounds like gentrification.


200k over is to cheap already these days.

With supply being super limited. I would still list it on the open market. Doesnt hurt to try and if you don't get what youre asking for, you don't have to sell.

Just read most of this thread below real quick.

Pure comedy and depression in one. The best part is reading posts by people who are still very much active.

Ugh that's actually somewhat true. But what do I know, it's not like I have family friends that have done this.

Really?!? Toronto is setting records for the building of new homes? I can only see this as being true if they're including teardowns and rebuilds, which wouldn't make sense.
