“I was chatting with a friend whose sister is looking for a condo in the Tinseltown area. Last weekend they thought they would pop into a few open houses. First she was struck by how many open houses signs there were in the area, but the thing that really caught her by surprise is when realtors (several in fact) came up to them ON THE STREET and asked “what are you looking for?”. She said it felt like she was in a developing country.”

    So now they call it the Tinseltown area? No matter what they call it, it’s still the DTES. I remember looking at mls, condos in the DTES weren’t much cheaper than in downtown proper. Now buyers have more time to look around the neighbourhood, that would hit condo resellers in the ‘Tinseltown area’ particularly hard.
