Hi I’m Chris Borkowski. You know me as “Condo Chris” and I am a broker with RE/MAX Hallmark right here in the city of Toronto.

Now, If you watch my blogs you’ll remember when I revealed that I was using “Crystal Ball” technology to predict the future of the real estate market. I do this because I found that i was often being asked questions like “whats the market gonna be like next year?” or, “whats my house going to be worth in six months?”. Last year I used the crystal Ball to make a few predictions, lets recap: “crystal ball – Are the leafs going to win the Stanley cup in 2013? (wha, wha, wha…….) Well, you heard it here first folks: There will be no real estate crash in 2013 AND the leafs are not going to win the Stanley Cup either”…. Ouch. Well we all know what happened to the Maple Leafs in 2013 AND there was no real estate crash either. In fact, across the board in the City of Toronto prices were up over 10%.

So, now we come to the time of the year when we look into the crystal ball and make a prediction for 2014. Now we could ask about the leafs again, but we don’t really need a crystal ball to see where that ones going, do we? So, instead lets ask about the upcoming municipal election: “Crystal Ball, who is going to win the upcoming municipal election in the city of Toronto in 2014” …. Rob Ford! Well, you heard it here first folks, the crystal ball doesn’t lie – Rob Ford will win the election in 2014 and maintain his title as the Mayor of the city of Toronto!

I’d like to take this time to thank all of my clients, colleagues and friends for their patronage and support this year and I would like to wish everyone a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR. ALL THE BEST IN 2014!
