Who Should Consider Via Bloor

Via Bloor is great for all demographics who value a luxurious, modern, and convenient condo lifestyle. Young people will enjoy the modern smart-home technology and the amenities. Professionals working downtown will benefit from the easy commute. And older people will find the size of the home to be suitable and the neighbourhood to have everything they need.

Richard Silver, Senior Vice President of Sales at Sotheby’s Canada, says,

It will be a great base for people who are interested in an easy lifestyle, steps to the subway, and a location where a car is not needed.

On Rightsizing

More space is always better…right? Not necessarily. Many people, as they age, move into bigger homes and accumulate more and more things. That feels like success when it comes to choosing a home. But eventually, so much of their home just becomes storage space for things that they don’t even use. As a result, they end up living in a property that’s too big for them to handle. Their “success” becomes a burden.

Barry Lebow, founder of The Accredited Senior Agent Designation, defines rightsizing as “to undergo a reduction to an optimal size.” Lebow gives a better definition of home success: living in an optimal space that’s the most suitable for your current situation. 

Via Bloor is a great rightsizing opportunity to for those who value luxury living and find their current house too big for their needs. Perhaps you’re finding it troublesome to climb the stairs all the time or to take care of the garden. Or perhaps too many rooms are collecting too much dust. Via Bloor will offer these people a great quality of life improvement with its well-designed layout, amenities, and walking proximity to parks and shops.

Some people may struggle with the idea of a reduction in space because they have so many things with sentimental value that they can’t throw away. If this is your situation, you can ask yourself, “Do you own these things, or do these things own you?” You can also use the Marie Kondo method by asking yourself, “Does this item spark joy in me?” If yes, keep it. If no, let it go. Alternatively, you can get professional help to sort out what to keep and what to let go of. Ann Christie from Declutter and Downsize has helped many of our clients downsize happily and effectively. 

Silver himself is actually planning to rightsize, and he says,

We are really looking forward to moving from our large home to a smaller unit with great amenities and security that allows for travel or extended periods of carefree living. Imagine no shovelling of snow or cutting grass!

Arriving in early 2021, Via Bloor will bring an exciting living space that is luxurious, modern, convenient, and practical. It will appeal to anyone interested in those qualities, such as young professionals and older rightsizers.

If you are interested in Via Bloor, you can contact Richard Silver at 416-587-3300 or rsilver@sothebysrealty.ca. He has one 3-bedroom unit available, and that unit has a beautiful view of the Rosedale Valley Ravine. He also has a great relationship with the builder, so he can find units that may be under assignment.
