Dog Houses

Let’s not fool ourselves – Fido doesn’t care about the looks of his doghouse. Dog houses are styled for people, people who like beautiful homes and objects. Although Fido won’t necessarily understand the value of a living roof and modernist lines, you will, and that’s what matters.

Classic log cabin: If a log cabin was good enough for our forefathers, it’s certainly a good choice for Fido. This cute and classic log cabin style dog house includes a front porch for catching rays.

Magis Modern Dog house: While “modern high-rise” isn’t the first thing one thinks of when it comes to the dog, this colorful dog house is fresh and stylish for both back yard and inside the house. This dog house comes complete with a set of “front steps” for puppies and pooches who may need a little boost.

Cubix by Hundehaus: In another nod to modernist design, the Cubix dog house pays direct homage to the Bauhaus school of modern design. This dog house is not only beautiful, but is also functional. It can accommodate both small or larger dogs and has a built-in drain on the roof and cleaning lids in the back. This dog house is designed to look like it’s floating over its base.

Modern Cabana: For a little touch of South Beach, the Modern Cabana dog house features a clean, nearly stark design that is softened by the round door and rooftop garden feature. Integrates with your back yard landscaping or bring it indoors for a little indoor/outdoor living.

Frank Lloyd Wright style: The Architectura pet house for dogs and cats pays homage to Frank Lloyd Wright. The house features slatted walls on two sides for good ventilation and lets your pet keep and eye on what’s going on outside.

Indoor/outdoor living doggie loft: The Habitat Staircase dog house has a great mix of indoor/outdoor living for your pooch. Small dogs will love the cozy little interior space, which measures about 22”x 31”x 16” high, as well as their own roof deck for lolling about in the sun. A fun accent on a back deck or patio.

So if you are looking for a home… dont dont think about yourself. Think about Fido. Your dog needs a new home too!

Brantford, Ontario – #1 place in Canada to own Real Estate
Brantford, Ontario is the best city in Canada to buy real estate, according to the latest annual MoneySense ranking Where to Buy Now.

Often known as “Telephone City” after its famous resident and inventor of the telephone, Alexander Graham Bell, Brantford came out on top when MoneySense factored in a number of variables including price momentum, value relative to nearby areas and the cost of renting.

Every year, MoneySense tracks real estate prices across Canada and uses a data-driven test to capture the hottest real estate markets in the country with the strongest regional value and the most potential to continue to rise.

The annual “Where to Buy Now” ranking covers Canada’s 35 major cities and also goes deep to judge more than 2,000 real estate markets at the local neighbourhood level in eight of the country’s largest urban centres, including Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal.

  • For Toronto, Bowmanville in Clarington is the top neighbourhood to buy in, with homes up 68% in the past three years to average $485,494 in 2017.
  • In Hamilton, the hottest neighbourhood is Crown Point East, up 74% in three years to an average price of $330,589 in 2017.

Brantford, the southwestern Ontario city of about 100,000, is also the birthplace of hockey legend Wayne Gretzky and Group of Seven painter Lawren Harris. Its attractive housing marketing is benefiting from an adaptive local economy, low unemployment and strength in the Golden Horseshoe region, which extends from Niagara to Peterborough.

“While other Southwestern Ontario municipalities continue to struggle with the collapse of the manufacturing industry, Brantford has diversified its economy and thrived,” MoneySense editors observed.

“And the average new detached home in Brantford sold for just over half a million dollars in 2017, making it attractive to Greater Toronto Area homeowners interested in moving to a smaller town and cashing in some of their gains.”

Long-time Brantford mayor Chris Friel said the city has undergone a dramatic transformation since he was first elected to the position in 1994. “It’s been fascinating to watch,” he said.

The MoneySense Where to Buy Now ranking is based on the following:

  • momentum in recent real estate transactions;
  • real estate value relative to nearby cities or districts;
  • health of the local economy;
  • price level of local rental markets;
  • and a survey of real estate agent experts on markets.

Summer is usually the slowest time of year next to December which held true with overall Brantford Sales volume. Within the office though we had a bit of a shakeup, while Kate Broddick maintained her lead Rob Avery came out of the thatch to grab 2nd place and Kate McGinnis held her rank and 3rd but Andrew Evans just got burned (by the Sun) and that kept him away.
None the less, the whole team at the office pulled out great numbers overall and we are creeping the ladder of high sales volume within the whole Local Real Estate Association.
Hard work and persistence at making deals happen is what a Sutton Team Realty agent has in under their belt.

We dont follow the crowd, we set the pace.
