Most Canadians say they won't get sucked into a bidding war
The Globe and Mail
Most Canadian home shoppers are not willing to get pulled into a bidding war to get the perfect place, although first-time buyers are more likely to pay above the asking price, says a recent poll. According to a Bank of Montreal Home Buying report, 28 per cent of Canadians surveyed said they would enter a bidding war for a house or condo. That figure was higher among first-time buyers, with 39 per cent saying they would engage in a battle with multiple offers, which most often drives up home prices — to the delight of sellers.

Farms outpacing homes in value
Caledon Enterprise
What does a farm cost to service? When it comes to municipal services, some would argue not much. Or at least, not much when compared with residential, commercial or institutional brethren. A field of corn doesn't require fire and emergency services. It doesn't ask for its street to be plowed, it doesn't need its garbage picked up. "Farmland simply doesn’t use the services that other land uses," said director at large of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture, Peter Lambrick.

Semi, detached
Mississauga.com
The 120-year-old residence at 541/2 St. Patrick St. bears the scars of a development battle. The Victorian row house was awkwardly severed from its neighbour in the 1970s when the owners refused to sell, and it lacks the symmetry of another side. It is literally "half a house," says its current owner, Albert Zikovitz, laughingly from his adjacent office in the Cottage Life Magazine building. "Everybody looks at it."

Boomerang kids fly back home
Simcoe.com
The 2011 Canadian census revealed 40 per cent of Canadian adults, aged 20 to 29, live at home with their parents. Part of the cohort, people returning home with a college or university degree in hand, are defined as boomerang kids. With job prospects low, student loan debt high and affordable housing out of reach, they have opted to save money by coming home. Others enjoying home cooking and comforts are branded as sugar babies, young people who can't — or won't — fly the coop.
