I hope you are doing well.
I am a Real Estate Broker with RE/MAX in the Greater Toronto Area.
I always get asked by people what type of real estate they should be investing in.
The majority of the people that I talk to are interested in investing in Toronto real estate.
One gentleman that I was speaking to last week was a first time condo buyer in Toronto Canada.
Some people that I speak to are experienced with real estate, while others don’t have too much experience.
The common thread with these people is that they are interested in buying a condo in Toronto Canada, or even a house in The Greater Toronto Area that they would live in or rent out to tenants.
Today I would like to talk to you about:
EMPIRE RAIN & SENSES IN OAKVILLE
If you are familiar with the Greater Toronto Area, you know that Oakville is an ‘upscale’ Town located approximately 20 minutes by car west of Toronto.
Here is Wikipedia’s definition of Oakvillle:
“Oakville is a suburban town in Southern Ontario, Canada. Located in Halton Region, on Lake Ontario, it is part of the Greater Toronto Area. As of the 2016 census the population was 193,832.”
“Rain & Senses” is a pre-construction condo being built by EMPIRE, located in The Town of Oakville.
Some say that EMPIRE is the second largest builder in Ontario, Canada by the number of units sold.
EMPIRE would be second of course to Mattamy. (Read About: Mattamy’s Vita On The Lake Here)
Here is some important information on “Rain & Senses” as well as some of my personal opinions on this new condo project:

I like this new condo project for a few reasons:
A) There are limited high rise condo buildings in Oakville.
The Town of Oakville is very particular with regards to dealing with Builders. As such, the town has not approved many high rise buildings to be built in The Town itself. As such, there is in my opinion limited inventory in Oakville when it comes to high rise condo buildings versus some of the neighbouring towns and cities close to Oakville.
And and as we know already, where there is limited supply, and if there is demand for that limited supply, this is what pushes real estate prices up.
“Detached homes in The Town of Oakville went up in value 38.4% year over year from November 2015 to November 2016.” – Source: RE/MAX Aboutowne Realty Corp., Brokerage
With this type of dramatic increase in value, people are naturally going to gravitate towards lower priced real estate, such as new construction condos.
B) EMPIRE Is Offering a FREEE $10,000 Furniture Package with the purchase of any suite.
Like the saying goes, “All Good Things Come To An End”.
This amazing Free $10,000 Furniture Package Offer will come to an end soon. It is only for a limited time.
The date in which EMPIRE will no longer be honouring this offer is March 12th 2017.
So if you have any interest in purchasing a unit in this condo project, and if you would like to get this amazing Builder Incentive, you need to act quickly. You can email me directly at email@example.com to find out what the next steps are if you want to purchase a unit.
Sometimes builders offer special DISCOUNTS off of the purchase price or what they call, “builder INCENTIVES”. These discounts and incentives are made available through VIP Realtors (like myself).
In My Opinion…
In my opinion, the FREE $10,000 Furniture Package that EMPIRE is offering is a very good builder incentive.
EMPIRE is really going above and beyond what other builders offer as their builder incentives, and they are clearly trying to offer something of VALUE to their potential purchasers.
Sometimes builders try to get away with offering potential purchasers with cheap and not too significant incentives. This is clearly not the case with EMPIRE. I am impressed with this Incentive that they are offering, and I think more builders should offer great incentives like EMPIRE is demonstrating here.
The Bad News…
Rain & Senses is almost SOLD OUT.
EMPIRE is a great builder, and people want to own real estate built by great builders. Not to mention Oakville. Oakville is a very desirable Town to Invest in…
You will need to move quickly if you want to purchase a unit in this EMPIRE community AND if you want to receive their FREE $10,000 Furniture Package.
The Good News…
To get this amazing $10,000 Furniture Package, and to reserve a suite to purchase, email me today at firstname.lastname@example.org
Move quickly though because the real estate market in The Greater Toronto Area is insane.
