Bedford Park Toronto homes for sale as of this writing have reduced somewhat over the last few
months. With inventory peaking early in the spring, currently there are only 33 homes for sale
in Bedford Park. Prices range from 679K for a semi-detached to just under 4 million for a 4
bath plus den with 6 bathrooms. Prices and inventory have been steady throughout the year in
this C04 neighbourhood of Toronto. After a disappointing first quarter with prices falling 13%
in the area, the 2nd quarter saw a rebound of 18.4%. The average increases are approaching
that of 2017 which was a 7.1% increase overall. Again a great investment for homeowners in
the Bedford Park Toronto homes for sale.
Summer is upon us and people are flocking to public beaches – Hanlan’s Point, Sugar Beach,
Cherry Beach and many others. Sunscreen abounds, beach volleyball and frolicking in Lake
Ontario and others. Cottagers are escaping the city and vacationers from abroad are
experiencing all the wonders that are Canadian.
KIDS AND WATER SAFETY
But lest we forget, summer time calls for additional protections and cautions. Our little ones
love to play in water or swimming pools. Inevitability every year, reports of unwatched children
drowning are frequent. One of my former colleagues recently talked about looking away from
his toddler playing in the shallows, to post on instagram, only to look up to the child face down
in the water. He was rescued and is safe, but it takes just a moment for tragedy to strike.
Likewise, reports of moms or dads just “running into the store for one minute” to find children
or pets in distress in overheated automobiles, even with the windows left ajar. Tragedy can
strike before one realizes it. If you are one of the Bedford Park Toronto Homes for sale that has an outdoor pool, do exercise caution.
PET AND SUMMER
Pet are especially vulnerable, as they have no way to tell you that they are in distress. Leaving
a pet in a hot car, can be fatal in a very short period of time. Pets can get overheated and
dehydrated in the heat of the summer. Always taking water with you on your daily walks, is a
good practice. In my neighbourhood, there are plenty of water fountains for dogs and humans
alike. Even a ground level water fountain can provide enough cooling until one gets home and
into the A/C.
Homes without air-conditioning and having pets and/or children must be especially vigilant.
Heat stroke can happen without any warning. When one stops sweating, it is often a late sign
of heat stroke and dehydration. Getting enough water is important. Thirst may mean you are
already in need of water and/or attention.
Outdoor activities, like biking and running, can be difficult in the heat and additional hydration
and rest periods may be in store. Many charity runs and bike rides occur in the summer
season. This unusually warm summer can lead to major risks of sun and heat stroke,
dehydration and emergency situations. Know the signs, exercise, caution and prevention.
The same with buying real estate. Nice transition. Often inventory is greater in the summer
and competition is less fierce, in some markets. A recent review of some prime areas in the
Greater Toronto Area, show prices and inventory on the rise. This is a great time for buyers in
the marketplace. Often not the best for sellers, except in hot areas (this year that is Hamilton,
and other points west (Milton)). As well, points East in Prince Edward Country and beyond,
home prices are considered more reasonable and often close enough to the city for
