- Basic Real Estate places ...
www.realtor.ca ... all the
listings from everywhere. In most cases you won't find an
exact address but you can search by many house attributes and
location. We can generally set you up with a "match" that
automatically emails listings matching your criteria as soon as they

gotta plug the company ! It's a good site and has been a
leader since day one. Lots of helpful hints for buyers and
sellers, mortgage info and more.
www.torontorealestateboard.com is the public site for TREB.
Lots of good info, including...
Consumer Info which has plain language "translations" of the
most common forms you will run into, market information,
government grant and rebate program links, etc.
Toronto Info includes brief overviews of neighbourhoods as
well as links to various services and attractions.
Market Watch. Monthly summary plus detailed info on prices
and more by area and district.
HPI (Home Price Index) A new guide to price changes and
relative changes by area of the city and type of house.
This chart is underpinned by an elaborate statistical model
which should be more accurate over time than simple monthly
dollar price averages.
Land Transfer Tax Calculator. If this doesn't convince you
not to buy, nothing will! (It is what it is, and it's a part of
getting your new home, but we agree that it's insane)

and links to the schools.
: The TDSB site's info never "jumps out" at me,

Board : same idea. TCDSB actually uses a service and it
returns all schools, public and separate for a given address.
