It’s Tour Tuesday!
Tom Lyons 0:05
Still the Tuesday that we don’t tour homes and you can’t either.
Tara Lyons 0:11
And Julie had her 40th birthday!
Tom Lyons 0:17
We didn’t actually ask her if she wanted the world to know that but, now they do.
It’s just a number.
Tom Lyons 0:25
There is no privacy!
But 2020 doesn’t count, so really I’m 39 and on repeat, right?
Tara Lyons 0:33
I completely agree with that.
Tom Lyons 0:42
Oh, yes, I did notice you’re.. got a trim.
Tara Lyons 0:49
Okay, how many people think I did a better job than Tom did? Because look at..
Tom Lyons 0:53
This is beautiful.
Did you do it yourself? Tom?
Tom Lyons 0:56
I did this myself. Tara decided to go for a haircut.
Tara Lyons 0:58
Yes, I got a haircut and color.
Tom Lyons 1:00
And I thought you know what, while Tara is going get a haircut, there is nobody here to stop me from doing things. And so I grabbed the razor or the the trimmer and I went to town.
Tara Lyons 1:14
Yeah, so you had a great time up on a lake. How nice is that? You picked a great time to go away. It was hot here!
It was hot! We pretty much lived in the lake for the weekend. Fishing and swimming and hanging out.
Tara Lyons 1:31
Our spring market’s here. Even though it’s almost the end of June. Everything’s up our average sale price is up. Our activity is up. It’s still a little bit for activity down, of course, over this time last year in certain areas. And interest rates are down, which is what you want to see. So that’s great. The expectation is they’re going to stay there and maybe even come down a little bit more.
Tom Lyons 2:00
I’m trying to be those motion graphics you see on the fancy shows. Or it’s like CNN chart up.
Baby shark doo doo doo doo doo baby shark!
Tara Lyons 2:15
Oh it’s gonna be in our head now! What else is new? We have some great listings out there.
We’ve got a great one and a half story four bedroom home up and Kaladar. Saw the price reduction on that one. Lots of updates on that one. Furnace, windows. Great little house.
Tara Lyons 2:34
We have a great home, north of Belleville, south of Tweed. And it’s on 65 acres and that is a wonderful two story home and it has, oh my gosh it has so much! It has an attached double car garage. It has a detached double car garage. It has another outbuilding that would actually make a really good secondary living or it used to be used for dogs so it had some dog runs. Has a saltwater in ground pool a hot tub. 65 acres to play lots of trails.
Tom Lyons 3:06
For those people that find particular joy and thinking that they’re going to put their in laws in an old dog kennel. This is definitely the place. They don’t need to know! Make it beautiful, make it nice and inside you’ll know, you put your mother-in-law in the dog kennel!
Maybe take out the dog runs before she’d go up.
Tom Lyons 3:32
Love you Sharon!
Tara Lyons 3:34
And so it’s got a gorgeous, en-suite bathroom, all redone. And you’ll love the soaker tub that’s there. Beautiful new kitchen. Nice open concept for a family room, and then it’s got a beautiful big dining room. 2 wood fire places that are all new as well. Lots of updates on this home! So..
Tom Lyons 3:56
Porch all the way around it.. Orchard.
Tara Lyons 4:02
Oh my gosh, it’s so true. So if you’re from Toronto, and you’re thinking of getting out during these COVID times, this is the home for you.
Other than getting food, you do not really have to leave.
Tara Lyons 4:17
You really don’t, and you’ve got apples!
Tom Lyons 4:23
You can be the Forrest Gump of apples! Apple sauce, apple pie, apple crumble..
Tara Lyons 4:28
There’s a couple of fields.. So you can always do that too.
Lots of room for gardens.
Tom Lyons 4:35
There are deer on the property. There are lots of rabbits on the property.
Tara Lyons 4:38
So staying north, we also have one on Blessington Road because we could talk about that house forever. Blessington Road is a really great three bedroom home as well that has had all kinds of updates done on it too. A big full finished basement. And it’s kind of an outbuilding, so that makes a great workshop and indoor extra storage. And it’s got a nice fenced in area real easy. Access to the 401.. What else have we got Julie?
We’ve got the one in Sterling in Frankford Road. Yeah that’s a great, really close, just on the outskirts of Sterling. So super close to all the amenities. It’s a great house with a double car garage. And it’s got three bedrooms on the main floor and one on the lower. Nice potential for like an in law suite on that one as well because it’s gonna have a basement or a bathroom downstairs. Nice hilled lot.
Tara Lyons 5:38
That’s really pretty too. Let’s see, what else have we got? shall we continue moving south I guess?
Wanna do Smith Road?
Tara Lyons 5:48
Yeah. Yes, Smith Road. Well, we have a conditional offer on that one. Oh, yeah, we’re still north. So Smith Road is a beautiful big vaulted ceilings and it actually has a nice treed lot too, so very private. And it’s got a gourmet kitchen with dining that walks out onto the back deck overlooking the the rear yard.
Tom Lyons 6:10
And that rear yard. Yeah, it’s pretty it’s like a little oasis paradise back there.
Tara Lyons 6:19
The home itself is gorgeous and it’s got a master bedroom on the other side and two other bedrooms as well. So three bedrooms and then it’s also got a loft which is really nice and the loft is open concept looking down on a floor to ceiling, fireplace and floor to ceiling windows and it’s beautiful.. Hey we’ve got a guest on Tour Tuesday!
Doug Bolger 6:47
Are we recording? Hello everyone! It’s Tuesday!
That was fun!
Tara Lyons 7:09
His wife and children are next door playing with some friends. So, they’re out having a lot of a lot of fun together! So we have a couple more properties down in the county. So we’ve got a great one over on Massassauga Road. That’s a nice price reduction as well. And so that home has income on it right now, if you’re looking for something that can help subsidize you living in it, or if you just want to have something with an income, you can do that. And there are 10 bathrooms, 9 bedrooms and it’s just a phenomenal home. Yeah, & it’s right on the water.
Tom Lyons 7:52
It’s this majestic home that is right on the water.
Tara Lyons 7:58
Near a conservation area. And it’s close to Belleville. You’re 10 minutes in to Belleville. And we have another one down off County Road 1.
Yeah, 89 County Road 1. It’s a great raised bungalow. If you’re looking for space for tinkering, for garage, for storage, for anything. This place is the place for you. It’s got a huge like four car attached garage. And then it has a big detach workshop in the back. But they both have hydro to them. Perfect spot. This one also has in law suite potential. 3 bedrooms on the upper level and a bathroom and then a couple bedrooms on the lower level. And an extra bonus room with a separate entrance which would be great for like a home based business. Lots of potential on this one for many different uses. Just on the outskirts of Picton. One more!
Tara Lyons 9:01
This is a beautiful waterfront, and this property is located right on that. So it’s perfect boating, and it’s a bungalow. So it suits a lot of potential different types of buyers. And it’s also got a detached double car garage, and it’s at the end of its own little laneway. So it’s very private and you don’t have the traffic going by and it’s right down in the county as well. Easy access to the 401 so if you’re looking even for a cottage property again, it would make a great secondary home as well, so it’s beautiful views.
Tom Lyons 9:41
With all our properties, the videos are on the site, TaraLyons.ca. We’ve got the Matterport dollhouse. They’re the 3d versions of the house that you can rotate around. Look at it, you can see the floor plans. See the square footage, stuff like that.
Tara Lyons 9:54
Yeah, and don’t forget we’ve also got the one on Grills Road, and this one is located between Trenton & Belleville. Yeah, we’re going to the north again. So it’s located between Trenton and Belleville. And if you’re looking for a secondary living or in law suite, this is absolutely perfect. It has French doors between two units that you could easily put solid doors or if you wanted to put a solid wall back and you could, they opened it up because they were using the whole house. But when they purchased it, it was a solid wall. And they’ve had a ton of renovations in this home as well. And it’s a it’s a beautiful country property. It’s a two story. It’s got the double car garage. It’s actually got a little bunky in the back too and a deck that spans the whole back of the house. But it’s a nice big open concept with the kitchen and family room and it’s got a pellet stove there too, which is perfect. So it’s a great country property. So I think we’ve covered them all and we have a few coming up so we’ll keep you informed when they come up as well. Perfect time to list. If you’re thinking, the next couple months are very strong. Our military is moving, markets up, everything looks good for listing.
Tom Lyons 10:59
Watch for any AMA’s that we’re doing. We’re going to be planning one in the near future. So we’ll get that online for you to be able to see. If you don’t know what an AMA is, it’s an “Ask Me Anything”. You get to come online. It’s a Zoom call other people are there. You get to ask any question you want. We do our best to answer it for you. We try and keep it real estate related, but it’s an anything. Wanna know Tom’s favorite color? Ask away!
Tara Lyons 11:23
He doesn’t know what his favorite color is. It’s a secret, so you’ll have to come in and join to find out.
Tom Lyons 11:32
What’s Tom’s favorite color?
But everybody wants to know, you know.
Tara Lyons 11:43
All right. Well, I think that’s everything and a..
Tour Tuesday out!
