Moving to London, Ontario

Moving to London, Ontario

The chore that is moving is much like a dentist appointment. No one likes it but after it’s over, you’re certainly happy you did it. A moving company can make or break a trip, pun very much intended. Few cities in all of Canada offer the robust mix of culture, nature, entertainment, leisure, and schooling that London Ontario does. So to ease the burden of getting here to enjoy all that, we’ve consolidated all the moving tips, tricks, and important facts into a single posting. Enjoy!

Pre-London Move; Who to use?

RJ’s Movers has been at it since 1970, and they’ve developed their sterling reputation by remaining relatively independent, personable, and extremely reliable. Whomever you end up giving your business to, just be sure to take advantage of RJ’s packing tips on their website! Two Men and a Truck is another fantastic option, with high referral rates for both local and long-distance moves (for those moves, they also guarantee a specific arrival date & time – not the case for all companies!). Campbell Brothers is London Ontario’s oldest moving company, giving people and businesses fresh starts for over a century.  They offer a wide range of specific services from pianos to libraries, and have a simple, easy quoting system on their website so you know what you can expect fee-wise.

Schools in London, Ontario

Schools in London, Ontario

There are dozens of prestigious schools across London Ontario, so we’re just going to make it quick with some links and where in London they are located.

University Heights Public School (NW London, by UWO)

John Dearness Public School (West London by Oakride)

Lord Nelson Public School (East London by Argyle)

St. Catherine of Siena Catholic School (North London by Masonville)

St. Anthony French Immersion Catholic School (South London by White Oaks)

B. Davison Secondary School (Just SE of downtown London)

Blyth Academy (Downtown London)

Neighbourhoods in London, Ontario

Neighbourhoods in London, Ontario

It feels as though for every distinguished school across London Ontario, there is a distinguished neighbourhood. If you prefer being a part of larger ones, you could venture east to Argyle, and just a bit north of that Huron Heights offers ample schools, shopping, and parks. Masonville in Northwest London is one of the city’s largest commercial and residential areas. If you lean more intimate or historic, be sure to consider Blackfriars which runs along the Thames River toward downtown, Broughdale by UWO, or Longwoods which is a recently developed subdivision in South London. Two neighbourhoods in particular are showcasing some exquisite work by custom home builders, Forever Homes. The first is Byron, located in the southwest, where a small-town feel permeates the relatively large yet tremendously friendly community. The average sale price of a home in Byron hovers are $575,000 while condominiums average out to $350,000. Outdoor activities, shopping sprees waiting to happen, and prestigious schools are all within earshot Byron.

The second neighbourhood experiencing growth from numerous projects by Forever Homes, is Creekview. It is a relatively new subdivision belonging to northwest London. It offers a plethora of gorgeous single-family homes nestled between top-tier entertainment, food, and schools. Be sure to peruse the brand new Forever Homes Creekview Phase 2 units! With 30 constructed for this burgeoning community, demand will surely be high. Units start around $600,000 and range from 2400 to 3300 square feet.

Buying Investment Properties in London, Ontario

Buying investment properties in London, Ontario

In a recent report by the London Free Press, London was cited as a prime example of the North American city that investors are seeking out – and will continue doing so. London was mentioned by the Vice President of Southwestern Ontario Market Outlook as the type of secondary and tertiary market that has “a strong track record, long-term stability and good growth. It is a phenomenon that is happening”. So, with the investment arrow pointing straight up, what is the best course of action for turning that dream purchase into a reality?

Know Your Company

This first step is undoubtedly easier said than done, but your intuition can be your best friend here. How cooperative and communicative is your realtor and his or her firm? Are they shaping their strategy to your individual wants and needs, or insisting that their one proven method is best, despite specific circumstances that vary from purchase to purchase? Getting a great feel on whom you are working with often is the strongest tell-tale sign in the early stages of buying investment property; are you a human being with an interest in ownership, or just another statistic?

Independent Research

We are in the information age. Sure, expertise is not null and void, but taking in data and analysis on your own time will reduce the chances of being taken advantage of by a broker far too obsessed with risky and speculative actions. The most fruitful investment purchase occurs when it is the product of collaboration, between an earnest and wise buyer and the experienced, well-connected realtor.

Investment Property London, Ontario

This brand new investment property is available for purchase in London, Ontario starting at just $372,000. The condos come with a 3 year rental guarantee at $1,800/month. For more information, visit http://www.homesinlondonontario.ca/tempo-condominium-townhomes-london/

Post-Sale Perks

What happens after the ink has dried defines the investment purchase, so it is imperative to understand the level of involvement a firm is going to have in all things rentals, tenants, red tape, and so on. For example, the brand new Tempo investment condos in London, Ontario come with a three-year rental guarantee, ensuring that investment will immediately begin paying dividends. Knowing specifics as opposed to merely saying “Oh, this area looks promising, let’s go for it!” is highly important foresight.

Post-Sale Work

There is a famous line from the classic baseball movie “Field of Dreams”, that goes “if you build it they will come”. Sadly, even the greatest investment properties aren’t magical baseball fields, as there is ample work to be done after building/buying. Mastering everything from advertising, to fine-tuning the showing process to prospective tenants, to even igniting competition for one of your units, are key cogs in the investment wheel.

The Time Is Now

Investment purchases are often landmark decisions, so getting it right is appropriately crucial. We at Team Forster pride ourselves on having our finger on the pulse of the London Ontario’s investment properties. We would love nothing more than to start a conversation with you, that will ultimately yield a dream property from which you will reap benefits for years to come. Contact us today using either method below, and let’s get the investment ball rolling!

The Best Wing Deals in London, Ontario

Wings just make the night better, and they truly are the all-purpose food. Whether it’s a family gathering, a casual night out with your better half, a friendly rendezvous accompanied by a few pints, or you just having that itch to go lone ranger on two dozen of them, wing nights are practically worthy of holiday status. Thankfully, London has no shortage of wing nights, spanning every day of the week and occurring in numerous fantastic neighbourhoods worth strolling around afterward. Here’s a look into the crème of the wing crop!

Bernie's Bar and Grill

Mondays and Tuesdays are wing nights over at Bernie’s, as they are just daring you to NOT go for a back-to-back! $13.99/lb is the going rate, and you have ten mesmerizing flavors from which to choose (just know the honey garlic comes highly recommended). They even offer dry rubs if you’re not feeling saucy! Bernie’s has two locations for you to get your wing game going, one in Sherwood Forest at Wonderland & Gainsborough, as well as Byron Baseline & Boler if you are more southwest. Both locations close at midnight.

Located just south of Fanshawe College in the Pottersburg neighbourhood, Players offers its wing night on Mondays, where any hungry soul can get one lb. of wings for $9.95, two for $16.95, and three for $21.95(!). If your taste buds are adventurous, consider diving in to one of Players’ more exotic flavors, such as “Stupid Hot” (you do the math) or the 40 Creek whiskey sauce.  It may be called Players, but the wings do not play games. Open until 2:00 AM on Mondays, enjoy some wings and catch the game at Players on Dundas St. E and Calgary St.

Wing Nights - Monday

We did the math for you, and the Wednesday prices are eight classic wings for $7.25 & 16 for $12.49, or ten boneless wings for $6.75 & twenty for $12.50.

Best Golf Courses in London, Ontario

Many consider London Ontario as a golf destination. Yet while the city’s selection of courses can satisfy even the most ardent golf enthusiast, it can do just the same for the casual couple looking for something to do on a gorgeous Sunday. And in terms of simple living conditions, with great golf courses come great neighbourhoods, so let’s explore some of each!

FireRock Golf Course

Located only 19 minutes from downtown London, 7 minutes from Hyde Park and 5 minutes from Hwy 402, the beautiful FireRock Golf Course is closer than you think.

You will play through pine forests, around small ravines all while taking in the panoramic vistas of the lake. Green fees start as low as $39.99 and go as high as $69.99. The course is minutes away from multiple communities such as The Grove, Huron Heights, and Crumlin.

Tarandowah Golf Course

Tarandowah is in London’s eastern part, less than a mile from the stunning Lake Whittaker Conservation Area.

The Best Breakfast Restaurants in London, Ontario

Best Breakfast in London, Ontario

London has a reputation for many things - its beautiful parks, the Thames river, and vibrant culture - but not typically for the Forest Cities abundance of quality breakfast places. Luckily, this is changing and we've put together a list of the best spots to get you started. 

The Early Bird

Located in the heart of London down the street from Budweiser Gardens, this rock’n’roll-inspired, retro-decorated breakfast joint offers a menu as extensive as it is delicious. Open at 9:00 AM seven days a week, one simply cannot go wrong with the GrEggs Benny (smoked brisket, sauerkraut, 1000 island), any of the perogies, or the vanilla waffles with poached apples. But there is one item that is cause for chatter…ladies and gentlemen, the Turducken Club. We will not judge if you need to order a second for later.

Southside Grill

Southside knows what it is, and it excels at it. Casual atmosphere, incredibly friendly staff, and a dynamite breakfast selection. Along with the stellar combo platters offered, be sure to peruse the Skillet options as they are all crowd-pleasers. Visit Southside Grill on Exeter Street right off Highway 401. Breakfast hours are 7:00 AM – 11:00 AM Mon-Fri, and 7:00 AM – 2:00 PM Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays (though, for a meager $1 charge breakfast is available all day with the exception of pancakes, waffles, French toast, poached eggs and bennys!)

Plant Matter Kitchen

Located in South London just south of Thames Park, this vegan establishment serves up delectable breakfast classics that any carnivore would devour. Can't-miss items include but surely aren’t limited to, the Spanish Omelette, the Loaded Potato Bowl, and the how-does-something-get-so-fluffy PMK waffles. Ranked the top breakfast in London by TripAdvisor, there is but ONE downside at PMK; breakfast is served only on Saturdays from 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM, and Sundays from 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM. (Oh! head to PMK for lunch or dinner to try the WORLD’S FIRST 100% plant-based burger that “looks, cooks, and satisfies just like ground beef!)

Breakfast in London Ontario

Spare Parts Diner

Husband-and-wife ownership team Matt and Kristin call themselves the food mechanics, and rightfully so, as no hunger problem has gone unsolved in the walls of this East London joint. Portions are known to significant but don’t think for a second that they use that as a crutch. The corned beef and hash are to die for, as is the Western breakfast sandwich on Texas Toast…and we dare you to not finish their crispy home fries. Open at 7:00 AM Mon-Fri, 7:30 Saturday, and closed Sunday.

Edgar and Joe’s

What Edgar and Joe’s may not have in terms of menu quantity, they more than make up for in quality, with a remarkable execution of all breakfast staples. Located in the Soho District at the intersection of Horton St. and Wellington St., only the Eggs Benny, and the Beef Brisket Hash are over $10, yet each bite of anything feels worth $10. The maple crumble takes their French Toast to the heavens, but if your sweet tooth isn’t kicking try the Soho Omelette with ham, mushroom and green onion. Edgar and Joe’s opens at 7:30 AM Mon. – Fri. and 9:00 AM on Sat. – Sun.

Campus Hi-Fi

Campus Hi-Fi is a Richmond Row staple, having survived the area’s constant turnover and upgrading since its opening in 1957. UWO/Fanshaw students and everyday people alike have sworn by Campus Hi-Fi’s outstanding breakfast at friendly prices. The Breakfast Poutine is among London’s best, and Meg’s Ukrainian Breakfast will quite simply leave you speechless. Catch a Campus breakfast starting at 8:00 AM seven days a week, and before 3:00 Mon. – Thu., 6:00 Fri. – Sat., and 5:00 Sun.

Tips for Buying your First Home in London, Ontario

Tips for Buying your First Home in London, Ontario

Buying your first home is exciting. It will be a place you’ll call home for many years.

It can, also, be a little scary. It is probably one of the biggest purchases you will ever make. Don’t panic or start stressing! We have you covered. Here are our top tips for buying your first home in London Ontario.

Get Pre-approved for your Mortgage

Getting a mortgage approval is one of the most important parts of buying a house. The last thing you want to do is start house hunting, only to realize you can’t afford it. Some real estate agencies won’t even start looking at houses with you until you have a mortgage pre-approval. Step 1 when buying your first house should include getting your mortgage pre-approval. Shop around for mortgages. Find the best option for you. Plan out your finances before you start viewing houses.

Have a Realistic Budget in mind

Decide on your minimum and maximum spend for your house. Be realistic. If you set your pricing lower, you may have to be more flexible with what houses you will be able to afford. And that’s okay! Many first-time home buyers buy fixer-uppers with the intent of renovating over the first few years in their home.

Make a list of priorities

Are you set on a particular area in the city? Do you want a townhome, a single-detached home, or a condo? What are your priorities? What areas are you flexible in and where are you not? Make a list.

First time buying a home in London, Ontario

Choose your real estate agent

Research real estate agents in your area. Find a realtor with experience and one that can walk you through the process step-by-step. Our experts at Team Forster would be more than happy to help you through the buying process.

Be flexible

You made that list of priorities. However, for your first home be flexible. It may be your first home, not your forever home. Many buy a starter home and move within the first 10 years citing a growing family or a change in jobs.

Get a house inspection done before buying

You do not want to find mold hidden in the walls after you move in and the sale has been finalized. Get an inspection done. It’ll save you time and stress.

Thinking about buying your first home in London Ontario? Look no further. Our experts are available right now to address any questions or concerns you may have.

Guide to Selling a House in London Ontario

Guide to Selling a House in London Ontario

Selling your house does not have to be the stressful and exhausting task many make it out to be. If you do your research properly and execute a well-thought-out plan, selling a house can go smoothly with little to no ruts.

Use our guide to sell a house in London Ontario. With our tips and tricks, you will be able to sell your house at the best value. Further, there won’t be any surprises when the time comes to sell.

Research House Values in Your Area

First and foremost, your home is likely your biggest asset. Do your research. Look up houses similar to yours in your area. Draw up a reasonable price range that you can expect your house to sell at. This info can not only help you sell but help you plan to buy or rent your next home.

When is the Right Time to Sell?

If you are in a rush to sell, this may not matter. However, if you have time, analyze the pros and cons of selling at different times of the year. In spring, there are more options for buyers, but the competition goes up for sellers. Houses, also, tend to show better in the nicer weather. On the other hand, the winter can sometimes be prime for the sellers since there are often fewer houses on the market. Check with your local real estate agency, such as Team Forster, to determine a good time to sell.

Choose A Realtor

Realtors can help you determine a fair price. You can compare your realtor’s suggested price to your researched price to help you decide if you have chosen the right person to help sell your home. A realtor can also aid in finding the best time to sell, can list your home on various sites, find ways to increase the value of your home, organize the showings, and help with the legal paperwork. They can take you through the process step-by-step. Make sure you choose a realtor with experience, such as one of our experts at Team Forster.

Selling A Home In London, Ontario

Showcase and Market Your Home

If you hired a realtor, they would help you out with this. Generally, clutter should be reduced, and the home should be depersonalized. Check out listings online and see what others have done for inspiration. The house should look clean and spacious. Certified home stagers can, also, be hired to help in this respect. They will make suggestions as to where furniture can be moved and what colours look more aesthetically pleasing. Find places online or in local listings to market your house. Let people know you are selling. Your real estate agent may, also, be able to help you in the respect.

Get Ready for Showings and Open Houses

Be prepared to have to be out of the house for hours at a time for viewings and open houses. You want people checking out your listing. No one is going to buy without first seeing the house itself.

Other things you should be aware of when selling include:

  • Know the costs. These can include legal service costs, a mortgage discharge fee, realtor fees, moving costs, staging and cleaning costs, and possible mortgage penalties if you choose to sell before your mortgage is up.
  • Decide if you are willing to go through a conditional sale. A conditional sale depends on the home inspection and mortgage approval for the intending buyers.
  • Gather the right documents. According to the Canadian Government, documentation that may make selling your house go smoothly include deeds, property tax receipts, renovation contracts or agreements, and transferable warranties.
  • Make sure to include it in your taxes. Come tax time, do your research and know where you will have to pay. If it was your primary residence, this might not matter as much. If it was a rented property, you want to make sure you report it properly.

Know what to expect before you sell. Plan ahead. Consult with experts. And happy selling!
