Update May, 2019: -Toronto Housing Report for April, 2019 released in May, 2019. -> We post report & analytic. Click here
- Home Sales substantially up
16.8%, Home Price soar as Spring Market finally begins to Take off. While Vancouver sees Home Sales 43% down below 10 years average, and 29.0 % down compared to last years. In Vancouver, Average Home Price = $1,011,200 - Condos = $656,900. Townhouse: $783,300  
- Average Home Price Toronto in May, 2019= $903,992 last month = $830,043. Only $97,000 different with Vancouver rank #4 Home Price in the world.
- Detach-Home, Semi-Detached, Ave Home Price up above 1 millions dollars as usually, categorized as A Million Dollar Home. Specially Detach-Home see Home Sales up 20%. substantially & Home Price increased a little bit around 1.35 millions (at peak 1.5 millions). While Vancouver 1.43 millions (at peak 1.75 millions), only $95,000 different, usually $250,000 different Toronto's Ave Home Price. Toronto Semi-detached, Home Sales up 6%, Home Price up 3% around 1.1 millions -> 1.2 millions. - Condos Home Price up 6% = $637,181, Condos Sales up 38%. Townhouse: $757,150.
- Average Home Price in GTA in May, 2019 = $820,148 also up, its largest increase over a year.  
However, Stress Test is still remaining as challenging for Toronto Housing Market.

- What is driven for Home Sales & Home Price up? - What are average Home Price of big 5 cities? Why Toronto up Vancouver heads down?

-> Wealth creates Wealth. In any country, rich Middle Class is created in the biggest City. In 20 -> 30 years, Middle Class Toronto has seen their wealth up significantly, creating 2/3 millionaire population of Canada's 4.8% millionaire population in the world, only 2nd after US 7.1%, Japan 2.7%, South Korean 1.8%. German 3.3%. While Vancouver population only 650,000 people, less than 15 times Toronto & GTA middle class population. => Is it Toronto Middle Class responsible for Housing Toronto stable, not down like Vancouver ? -> Who have capital can afford Home in Toronto? - Use Data we also proved that Middle Class Toronto 2 x times more capital access than New York city, and Tokyo 's middle class, where average Home Price around $400,000.

- Use Data we show that Middle Class Toronto 2 x times more capital access than New York city, and Tokyo 's middle class, where average Home Price around $400,000 (Business Insider). While 60% American, UK 51%, Japan 48.9%, Canadian 49% have less than $100,000. See Millionaire Households Rank in the World. Click here  - Cost to buy home in 50 US's States in 2018. Click. - Salary needed to buy Home in 20 major US Cities. Click. -> As scientist we talk Data, no mouth, tongue. People make wrong decision, no smart choices, because they get used to mouth & tongue. No doubt that at Downtown New York, Home values in millions of dollars. But if you Average poor districts around New York (like GTA), the median Home Price very low.

NOTE: Only Dumb and Idiot keep cash in bank account and Show off Cash, Spending gradually to nothing. Most smart people invest their money in Stock or Home gradually to something. Middle Class keeps 90% their capital access in Home. And they try to pay off Mortgage as soon as possible.

Office Advanced Cloud Print's Receipt print from Cloud, from online website.

=> See the latest Apply Cloud Print Receipt in Office -> Click here . (Update: May 8 /2019)
=> See Staff / Customer Self-Order in Store and Cloud Print Receipt -> Click here. (May 8 /2019)
=> See Active Table Manager, Repeat Orders, and Cloud Print Receipt -> Click here.. (May 8 /2019)

Why Cloud Print?- Because Office is Cloud Technology to integrate with Mobile Order, online E-Commerce. Without Cloud Print, Office can't print. So must Research Cloud Print.
NOTE
: Most stores print in small area within stores. But Office can Print (Cloud Print) orders from Website, Mobile, Tablet, iPhone, iPad that people place orders thousands miles away, and orders printing at Pos Printer in store. So that Staff can have receipt to prepare food, order items. This Cloud Print, Print from Website, Mobile, Tablet. Even Vend and many other System Can't Do it. They can only Print inside store.
Write code software not easy, but write code to print even more difficult.
For example, A customer at home hundreds miles away from a Store. She places orders from her Samsung Mobile Phone ( or iPhone, iPad, Tablet, Laptop) -> Then she check-out, paid at PayPal. After paid, the receipts are Printing at Pos Printer in Store far away from customer's home or office. This is called Cloud Print. Conventional Print, a Staff place orders, print only short distance they must in store.
Another Example, A restaurant in Japan offers Mobile Orders, Online E-commerce Orders. Customers in Canada, US, visit that Japan Restaurant website -> Place Order using their Mobile iPhone (or Laptop, Tablet ) -> The Orders then are printing in Japan Restaurant's Pos Printer.
Another Example, Customers in a restaurant use their iPhone, or Galaxy Phone and place orders using wireless Wi-Fi. Then orders are printing in store's Pos Printer. With traditional printing like Vend Print Technology, this kind of customers self-orders using their smartphone are not possible. Because Cloud Print doesn't need driver plug-in or installed something in their Devices like Tradition Print. So anyone can print using wireless Devices like Mobile iPhone, smartphone ...
 
Update May,  2019

- How Staff in house use Office Take Orders at Table 24. Click here -

=>
Paper Bill cost money 4000$ / y. Change from Paper Bill to Digital? - Easy. When Take Order use Tablet, Mobile. No Paper.

- Automation, Customers Self-Orders Vend iPad and 90% iPad Systems on market Customers Can't Self-Order, Automation because No Cloud Print. Because Vend system print from Local App's local port hardware on iPad. Local App need download from App Store like Apple Store or Google Store. Local App allows access to local hardware on iPad, iPhone, smartphone. While Office, no download software, print from Cloud, from Internet IP Address, like 192.168.0.20, not from hardware of devices like iPad, iPhone, Tablet, Galaxy smartphone.
- Two different Software Design use different Print Technology.
- Alibaba Jack Ma recently invested in New Automation Technology, just open new kind of Store, Restaurant in China, complete Automation, Customers self-orders use their Mobile, Robots deliver food to customers at tables. No servers. No cashier.
Why don't we think like Jack Ma?
-> Because we are not Jack Ma,
Visionary, who sees things differently people can't see. We don't think far, think small.
- In US, Canada, Robots may not reality because cost too much, hard to maintain. But
Automation like Self-Driving, Self-Order is becoming reality, even Driverless Cars still not on market yet. -> That's why Office is built for What Next. Easy said than done. Automation minimum requires software must: 1) Cloud Print 2) Work & Run all Devices. Those software run iPad only, no Cloud Print will not Automation.
- Vend 100 millions dollars company, and 90% iPad systems on market, no choice but completely overhaul, re-design their system for automation, like their system must work & run completely 100% on Mobile (not just reports), Mobile Pos, run all Devices because customers user iPhone, Samsung, and Cloud Print ... Which is cost alot of money, they already invested millions dollars on their software. Hard to change. Their Systems are What's Now and Office is What's Next.

- Is Office Automation, no Cashier, no Server?
-
Yes, completely. Beside Office is built:
Cloud Print, Work All Devices helps Automation. It also built-in Office Card like Star-Bucks Card. Customers self-orders, then check-out paid by Office Card enter Code or by Pay Pal Take Photo of Credit Card -> Then Just Walk out. Customers buy Office Card online or in store. Office Card, by design, is not Plastic Card but Digital Card, given 7 characters code store in their phone. Customers can check Order History, Balance, Order Items of their Office Card. When Pay, customer just need enter 7 characters code. Done. Just Walk out. No need Cashier.
Office Automation solution is much simpler and less Cost than Jack Ma Robot Automation's solution.
Funny see expensive Robots walk around in small area Store back & forth in "Round Trip" delivery food and come back to customers pay at Robot. Then Just Walk Out. Even take more time than Office Automation no Round Trip. See Office Card -> .
The difference between Office Card and Pay Pal is that Paid By Pay Pal required Register Info & Login at Office website. You need Login Office website when order Mobile or Online. When check-out, Office will transfer your Info to Pay Pal website -> So that you don't need re-enter Name, Address, Phone, Email when Pay at Pay Pal website. Only enter Credit Card Number. While Office Card is no need Login, no Register at Office website. When Buy, just enter 6-7 character code. Self-Txt Office Card Code your phone. Copy & Paste Code from your phone when buy. No need remember, no need enter code. Office Card no plastic is easy created, less cost. Business also used Office Card for Sales & Marketing. And used Office Card like your own Bank's Credit Card no interest 20% like Bank Credit Card. Email, Txt Office Card Code to friends.

NOTE: No one wants to go to a store for service, a restaurant to eat, and download 100 mb software on their phone. And go to another restaurant download another 100mb software. Keep on. Assume all restaurants has its own App download software. -> Ridiculous, bordering, non sense.
In Store, Restaurant that Use Office,
just type: www.myrestaurant.com that uses Office software, or touch on Office App Icon on screen will launch Office App -> Place orders. Done.

How much value Enterprise All-in-one Office System is worth?
-> Get to this stage, 1.5 millions dollars worth in Research and Development in R&D Office What's Next compared to 100 millions dollars What's Now in Vend.
- Investors have invested 100 millions dollar in Research & Development R&D Vend Software Internet Company. If we don't show you the Press Release PR, people would not believe it. Even 100 millions dollars, Vend at What's Now, not What's Next.
-> Build software cost a lot of Time & Money, even not sure you get the right software because lack of talents. -> That's why Millionaires, Billionaires are created in Software Business. Software rules the world.
But let's see
How Much Cost When Build Software. A software company to build software has A Few Good Men of 5 experienced Software Developers at least 15 years of experience. Each Ave salary =  $50,000 (salary Developer from $40,000 -> $65,000 ).
In just 1 years cost = 1 year x 5 Developers x $50,000 =
$250,0000.
In just 5 years cost = 5 year x 5 Developers x $50,000 =
$1,250,0000 (1.25 millions dollars)
Develop software cost a lot of Time & Money, and lucky if you get the right Talents. Not easy as you think. No wonder why Investors invested around 100$ millions dollars in Vend Internet Software Company.
- People think after software was built, it is Done. - Wrong. Because software keeps evolving. Vend has developed its software for 20 years, still continues its Research & Development (R&D). Vend is one of the best on the market. You have to be in Software Business, and as Software Scientist, who writes code under a lot pressure, in order to understand. -> That's why alot Millionaires, Billionaires in Software Business, most background as Software Developer. Everything you do, from Banking to Internet, in Office, your Smartphone, governed by software -> Software rules the world.
Mark Zuckerberg
when built Facebook with few friends, still Live in an Apartment. Yahoo at time, a big Media Company, worth 100B dollars, tens of thousands Software Developers, in need a Social Media Network. Yahoo couldn't build by itself a Social Software, wanted to buy Facebook few men, small start-up for
1 Billions dollars, but Mark Zuckerberg rejected.

Why Yahoo not use 1B hire thousands developers build Social Software. Why buy from FB few men?
- Facebook started in 2005 from A Few Good Men. Yahoo, 100 Billions Media Company, with tens of thousands software developers, try hard to build Social Software, wanted to buy Facebook in early day 2006 for 1B. But Mark rejected, although Live in apartment. -> He rather keeps working on Facebook -> Than * Sell something less value than he believed *. When asked why he rejected 1B? - He said: - Have a lot of fun busy building Features and Facebook Product. After all, still has my own apartment."  Obviously, He doesn't need spend 25 years climb mountain. He got some small early investors.
People who are not in Software Development should understand that: -> Software is not easy to build. Even 100 B dollars company, tens of thousands developers can't build things that A Few Good Men can build. Today, Yahoo sold to a Company, out Business. -> Need the right talents. Nurture them.
How do you get the right talents?
-> You need Talent to Get Talent. Talents are different. They don't think, see things like common people. - You may think they are crazy, dislike them. You can't Get the Right Talents using Tradition Interview, " How Resume Look, Interview Questions like "- How Much Salary You Expect? blah, blah ..People can learn answer these Interviews online. -> This Tradition has Nothing to do with Talent. You have to look deep in their Work, in their Mindset, Problem Solving, Innovation, Visionary, and their Passion.
Jack Ma solve problem
Automation using Robots. We solve problem Automation using Office Card, Cloud Print, Work All Devices. But both are looking for Automation built-in when Design their Software doesn't matter customer use Automation or Not -> Because we build What's Next not What's Now. Like they build iPad only,  Local Print in Store only. We build Work All Devices, Cloud Print ready for Automation. -> Like Automation Driverless Car. While other Internet Company ignore, because they don't see like we do. -> We see What's Next. They every day *busy* see What's Now, iPad only, almost 90% on the market. So when Automation ready, they have *big problem* re-design from iPad only, Local Print -> Work All Devices, Cloud Print. =Too late. Cost Time & Money. Like Automation Driverless Car. -> Now not seen on street. But big Car Company already invested Billions dollars in R&D. Because What's Next.
Why Talents see differently from us?
 -> Something in Mindset, Visionary, Think differently. This is the difference between Talents and no Talents, the Followings ( person whom people follow) and Followers (person who follows someone.  Like run business. Like 90% iPad on market. Copy, Follow same other people design.). Steve Jobs said: - Innovation distinguishes between Followings and Followers. -> That's why a lot of Hundred Billions companies like Block Busters, Yahoo, Black Berry ... Out of Business. So many 100B Companies fall to zero. Use What's Now's People Search for What's Next's Talents -> Never good match.

NOTE: So far, Investors invested 100 millions in Vend Internet Company. It received 20 millions USD from Peter Thiel’s Valar Ventures and Square Peg Capital. https://blog.vendhq.com/post/64901824985/vend-raises-20m-funding-round-co-led-peter-thiels-valar-ventures-square-peg-capital. Recently, Vend Pos also received many other funding: 9 milllions, then 13 millions, 60 millions, and many other rounds. CEO said Total value at 100 millions. https://pitchbook.com/newsletter/vend-secures-9m-investment.
 


- Staff or Customers use Tablet, Mobile to Place orders. So easy.

- 100 millions dollars company Vend software run on iPad only, 90% iPad system on market Customers Can't Self-Order, Automation. Because No Cloud Print, iPad only. Because they print from Local Port on iPad. While Office print from Cloud, not local.

Why Vend System, and 90% Systems are iPad only on market, can't Automation?
1) They don't have Cloud Print Technology that allows customers Print from Mobile Phone.
2) Their systems run on iPad only. Can't tell customers bring their iPad when eat there.
While Office runs on All Devices.

What is Self-Order?
You yourself order online or in store is a Self-order. Easy. So
Customer Self-order in Store is as same as order online, even easier. Don't be afraid try Self-order in Store save time & money. See Cloud Print print receipt when customer self-order in Store or Mobile or Online Ecommerce. Click here


- Office Menu, Office Mobile, a whole system in one hand.


- Office Menu on Tablet, iPad for Staff, Customers Take orders.


- 90% iPad System already in the past. Can't Automation. Can't Mobile. Expensive Licenses.
- Office used for all kinds of Businesses, not just Restaurant.

- Old PC System in the past. Can't work, can't integrate with Online, Internet, Cloud, Mobile Order, E-commerce. Can't Automation. -> Businesses lost all its potentials, lost Revenue, not Reach out customers online.


- After few years, tens of thousands paper bills, a mountain of  Paper Bill. Harder to keep track -> Tax man, your Accountant will not like it.
- Simple Data: -  How much Total Sales, Total Tax from last week, last month, from January -> May?


Cloud Print: Print from Cloud, online, in Cloud, like website, Mobile Order, E-commerce order.
- Cloud Print also called Internet IP Address Printing Technology.
This Cloud Print Technology allows Print over the Internet.


Office Card place order.
Different way customer can buy Office Card, Digital Card no Plastic, like Cash:
1) Buy Online at website like buy food.
2) Business self-create Office Card, 20$, 40$, 50$.. and Get Code generated. Then write Code on a business card sell, Email, Txt Office Code to friends. Good Marketing.
3) Office Card is also used like you create your own Bank's Credit Card,
no Interest.
4) Office Card is built-in system that allows Business, Customers keep track Orders, Items, Transactions, Date & Time, Amount, Balance.
5)
Office Card no Transaction fee. Every time customer pay Credit Card, Bank charge transaction fee from 1.5% -> 2% using their Card Terminal.
6) Office Card is used to buy Online Ecommerce, Mobile Order, in Store buy.
 
Image result for credit card terminal - Bank Card Terminal cost Transaction Fee from 1.5% -> 2.0% / Transaction when a customer Pay by Credit Card.
Only Paid by Cash and by Office Card
your own card no Transaction Fee.



- One Order ID= 1086 has 3 x Items

- 1.5 million dollars worth in R&D Office What's Next compared to 100 millions dollars in Vend system What's Now.


 

- Update Latest Office Product in April 20, 2019: How to Mobile Order, Online Order, E-commerce Order using Office Software Product.  Click here.
Customer Online Experience: Office Mobile Order, Online, E-commerce Order simple & easy, only few steps, only 3 x screens.

A customer said: - In China, Japan, restaurants now use Robots, Automation, Customers Self-order, Hi-Tech replaces Human Touch to cut labour cost. We still back and forth with paper, high labour cost. Carbon paper receipt cost ave 5000$ / year. While Digital Receipt and Thermal Receipt Pos like no cost.
In our store, I used an old PC Pos system which is a Cashier Point-of-Sales to Mange in-house orders. Now, I want to reach out more customer. I open an Online Restaurant that people can place orders from Mobile Order using any Devices, and Online E-commerce Restaurant. I phone to a local Web Design Company. It said: Cost
5900$ just to Design Mobile Order and Ecommerce Order. The company said that it costs only $6000 open an Mobile & Ecommerce store; While your physical Store cost tens of thousands dollars / month, Utility, Rent .... Do business today must be Online in Digital Economy, fast and efficient. Can't human slow, busy back & forth, waste Time & Money. They are right. Our Staff take order by hand, busy back & forth with customers, take alot of time.
A lot Customers don't want to give Credit Card Info to Staff by Phone. Less sales. Even Store Owner doesn't want Staff Take Credit Card Info of customers. We need Smart Store need change mindset. But, I can't afford 5900$. Lucky we have Office System. Now, I will replace old PC Pos System by Office System that includes Pos Point of Sales Cashier System, Mobile Order, Online Ecommerce Order. All-in-one Office with affordable Price.

** Very Important ** Office System can print to Pos printer the receipts of online Orders from website, mobile, tablet to Pos Printer from Mobile Order, Online, E-commerce orders. The local software Company can't provide this feature. Email only. Hard for the kitchen chefs prepare orders in emails. For example, a customer not in Store, at Home miles away used Tablet, iPad, iPhone, Samsung Phone open Office to place orders -> Orders will print to Pos Printer. The chefs look at Pos Receipt to prepare order. Other Pos System, their Technology can print order within Store, not far distance like Office System. They can't print receipt from e-commerce website, mobile phone far away, or when customers order not in store. We also call Vend Pos, a 100 millions dollars Investors invest in a 20 years experience Company. Can't Do Online Print.
 
100 millions dollars company Vend What's Now vs. Office What's Next. Here are the differences Office can do but Vend can't do: (Update May, 2019)

A Scientist Professor said:- To explain this you need a Computer Scientist, who spent years on R&D, working on Research & Development (R&D) on Mobile Design, Cloud, Framework, Computer Languages. You can't learn this from school, reading.

1) Vend  System can't Print Online Orders from website, mobile phone. It can only Print orders within store area. While Office can Print orders from online website, e-commerce, from mobile, thousands miles away from store. Vend System good for Retails not for Restaurants because no Table Active Manager. While Office good for Retails, Nails & Salon, Restaurant, all kinds of businesses that want to expand online.

2) Vend can't run a whole Pos on Mobile called
Mobile Pos. That's why Vend Pos called iPad Pos (By Design, it runs on tablet iPad UI fit-in big screen only - Most systems on market by Design run on big screen iPad only) not Mobile Pos like Office can Mobile Pos. You can use your phone run Vend Pos for reports only. But can't use your phone replace Pos system. While Office by Design is Mobile Pos. You can replace a whole Pos by your Phone. See photo.

3) Vend System can't do
Mobile Order. Customers can't Take orders by Mobile. Staff can't Take Order by Mobile Phone also. While Office can Mobile Order, Customer and Staff Mobile Take Order.
For example, Vend's customers can't use their mobile phone at Home or in Office place order and print orders in Store's Pos Printer.

4) Vend system iPad only, 90% iPad system on market Customers Can't Self-Order, Automation because No Cloud Print. Because Vend system Local Print from local port hardware in small local area, iPad only. While Office Cloud Print from Cloud, Run all Devices: Laptop, Mobile, iPad, iPhone, Galaxy Samsung smartphone, Tablet

5) Vend System can run on
iPad only big screen, even not work & run on Tablet like Samsung Tablet. Vend sys can't run on Mobile, only generate reports.
While Office can run & work All Devices, Laptop, iPad, Tablet, Mobile iPhone, Samsung Phone. You can replace a whole Pos by your Phone. See photo.
- Because By Design, Vend's Developers develop their App for Apple Operating system iOS. Thus work only for Apple Products. Office by Design run & work all devices, including Apple iOS and Android OS. Thus use Office you don't need to download from Apple Store or Google Store.
- Why not Vend Developers do not develop & build another App for Android OS (Operating System like Windows OS) so that it can run on Tablet, Phone like Samsung Tablet, Samsung Galaxy Phone? - Because they need to hire another Team of Java Developers work on Android OS, thus cost money, resources, maintaining, like building 2 x Office Building. If to build the 1st software cost a lot of Time & Money, the second software costs even cost more. Cost double. Even 100 millions company, they have no resources. Pos System is Big App not Small App that can afford to build for both Apple OS and Android OS.
-> Given all big money 100 millions dollars company, hundreds of Developers, talents, huge resources.
With 100 millions, company can hire 1000 employees & developers paid 50K each.

A Scientist Professor said:- A lot people because lack of Technology background they don't know what New Technology Office can do. They listen to wrong people, who don't have technology background, thus biases. -> Even a 100 millions dollars can't do for them. For example, there are customers insists can Print Orders from online, Mobile Pos, Mobile Order, should Run & Work All Devices ... But they don't understand that's is not easy as they think. Even a 100 millions dollars can't do these for them. Businesses, Schools, Investors lack of knowledge waste Time & Money invest in Technology not for the future.

NOTE: So far, Investors invested 100 millions in Vend Internet Company. It received 20 millions USD from Peter Thiel’s Valar Ventures and Square Peg Capital. https://blog.vendhq.com/post/64901824985/vend-raises-20m-funding-round-co-led-peter-thiels-valar-ventures-square-peg-capital.

- Office Mobile Pos is the first generation can replace a whole Pos system in mobile. Of course Office can run on iPad, Tablet, Laptop, Mobile. All Devices.

- Most Other systems on market, like Vend Pos can't because by design for iPad big screen only. That's why Vend System called iPad Pos not Mobile Pos.

- Not easy Design software make it fit in Mobile small screen. Mobile Phone does not auto re-size app. You must know How to Design App Fit-in Mobile small screen. Measure every inches UI (User Interface).

- Big screen like iPad, Tablet is easy design Software App but not easy fit-in small Mobile screen -> That's why in Software Design must start from Mobile First not Laptop First like in school. Most Schools teach Software Design on Laptop first. -> Look at the above photo. Very difficult to Design software Pos from big screen fit into small screen mobile, and work the same. And software must do all functions as Pos, Mobile Order, E-commerce  All-in-One.

- Software Developers when design, they don't see a whole bigger picture. Lack of Innovation. They see only as Pos on iPad. They don't see Pos can do Mobile Pos, Mobile Order, also online Orders E-commerce, online Print, run All Devices ... When Design, they see and satisfy: What Needs Now. Not What's Next. A small View. Big problem. Like run business, this View will not push business Forward, either Backward or Stay the same as Usual to the next 20 years, still the same. Then your Competitors invest in What's Next. You will be out of business soon. Like Video Block Buster didn't see What's Next of Netflix -> New Business Model Cloud vs. Tradition Store Location. Like smart phone, before Phone Designers see phone is phone. Phone can't be a Camera. A small narrow View. Today, smart phone more than Phone. It is: Camera, Internet, Apps.. All you need is one Steve Jobs change a whole industry.

On Average, Toronto Middle Class 2 x times richer than Middle Class in New York, and Middle Class in Tokyo. If we don't use Data people don't believe it. But Data said so.
NOTE: Toronto Real Estate use Average Home Price $800,000 = All types Properties: Condos, Town Home, Home. If use Average Home Price for just Home, then much higher than $800,000 in Million.

Using Data
,
is worth thousands words, Scientists explain something easy understand by measurement value, define value, fact that common people can't by using mouth & tongue. Using Data, in few words, scientist describes Toronto more than multi millions PR campaign. People around the world, even people live in Toronto understand What Is Toronto.

- Framework is Modern Enterprise Architecture, like Infrastructure very important. -> Click. Office is built on 400 millions usd Software Framework.

- Web Services
Click
(update) -> Why Framework not only Coding likes Web Service, but also is Web Service, built-in powerful Web Services,
different Coding with Tradition Language like Python, Php, Java, C# .Net, Script, and no built-in Web Services. Self-Create, Re-Invent. -> Why? Benefits? => We don't need few hundreds Developers back & forth. Self-Create, Re-Invent. We just need A Few Men, who know exactly to Architect, Design, Code from scratch, from Front-end to Back-end. NOTE: If your Developers can't answer this then they don't know anything about Framework. -> Look, we build a whole Office on Framework. Take years. What is Re-Invent? - Stuff, Code, Design had been done, tested by New Tool, New Technology. But is done again. Even the most smart, experienced Managers, Developers don't know. -> Because they never up-to-date their skills to New Technology. -> Thus, they spend a lot of time re-design, re-code again. -> Thus Waste Time & Money over Budget. The big Loser is the Business. The Developers can always move to the next Job.
 


- Office in General -> Click |  | System Requirement: Office Work all Devices: 1 or many of : Laptop, Tablet, iPhone, Samsung. And Pos Printer. Done!. No extra complex software, hardware.

For example
: the simplest use Office is: Use Office on 1 x iPhone ( or 1 x Galaxy Phone) Take Order + Used as Pos for Take Payment at Counter or carry Mobile Phone around Store Take Order + Take Payment. Or put Office in pocket carry Onsite at Customer Location for Take Order + Take Payment. -> No fix big stand Terminal Pos, no PC pos can't carry around. That's why Office is also called: The smallest Mobile Pos, Take Order. No carry Paper Bill.

- 3 Steps to Setup Product Catalog. Started from scratch. Then Place First Order successfully. Click here.

- Office for Other Business, Nails & Salon, Retails. 3 Steps. Click here

A whole Big Stand System Take Payment but Can't Take Order & Carry = Office Mobile Phone Take Order + Take Payment

- Office for Restaurant  Usage: 2 Steps. Click here. Include Online Order + Mobile Order (like Star Bucks) + Self-Order (self-order in store same steps, just like customer self-order online, self-order mobile. Not difficult.) + Data Management, and POS (point of sales). | NOTE: Why let the middle man control delivery cost your business 30% / delivery. And your customer pay extra Tip for middle man, and slow. Because they delivery for many business customers, not just your customers. Waste Time & Money + No profit + Delivery Cost 30%, Tip 15% & Slow + Customer complaining. And still no Mobile Order. Customers Star Bucks Mobile Order all the time. ? -> Office can help!

Office Price: (New Pricing) Unlimited Licences. No subscription monthly. You pay 6 install payment. Done!
Use Other System, 5 staff use 5 Tablets. Cost Business: 129 $  / mo subscription + 5 licences x 40$ / mo = 330 $ usd / mo = 3960 $  usd / year -> Repeat year after year. Price in USD.

Office Unlimited Licences: 100 customers in stores use Office on their iPhone, Samsung Phone for Self Order + 5 Staffs use Office Take Orders -> Cost $0.0 for licences.

Office Free Monthly Subscription -> Technology Innovation helps reduce cost. Business has a lot of bills to pay every month.
Almost 99% Internet Companies charge Monthly Subscription. Customers paid every month and every year as their Business Model. But Office Model FREE Monthly Subscription, only 6 Install Payments. Done. No more payments every month and repeat every year. WHY? - Because Office is built on powerful Software Framework, New Technology (See Framework Infrastructure. All is about Infrastructure) -> Which makes Office software more efficient, fast, run with less Resources. -> Thus reduced cost, less Hosting Cost for Server, Network Resources. -> This Affordable Price helps bring
Office to Global, where their Businesses can't afford 129$ usd / month. Too much, even for Businesses in North American, US & Canada.
While other Internet Company
built their software used 20 years old Old Technology, required very costly Hosting Platform Server & Network. Not efficient. High Cost Hosting Fee, Server, Network Resources -> Charge high Monthly Subscription Fee. An Internet Company 6000 customers, but they build a costly Hosting Platform cost them tens of thousands / month plus IT people maintain.

Other Internet Company builds a big platform shared host thousands of customers, like a big Building each customer has its own condos. Can't customize each customer. Cost a lot of money to maintain big Building. You can't ask landlord add on new room, new features, customize screens, for your apartment. A lot software features, 70% you never use, only 30% feature are useful. If want customize your own business, you must buy Account Plus (+), which cost a lot of money, only for Big Business.
A customer said
: - I just need extra few features useful for my business. I pay extra fee. But they can't make it for me.

We build & architect Office each customer has separate Host, like its own Home, easy Customization of Office software for each customer.

Price Advantage: Why China always trade big surplus. Although US, people around the world, Like It or Not their Product, specially American. Why big companies always cut cost, reduce Price to compete. In a Globalization Trade Products & Services between Nations, Nationality became irrelevant. Company provides Products and Services for all kinds of Customers.

- Home Value affected by Inflation just like other things. Whatever we have, car, cash, cloths, TV ... will lost value naturally by Inflation the Time Machine, in the long run. Only Home increases values, protects us from Inflation. In 90s, Big Mac was around 2.0$, 1-Bed Room around $600. Today Big Mac 6.0$, 1-Bed Room around $1700. around 3x times higher. Home like Big Mac, Rent, up naturally by Inflation. Rent up -> Home Price Up -> Don't expect Home Value (Price) decreases value in the long run. Just like other G7 countries, Canada does very best in keeping Inflation under 2%, much better than others countries in the world, G20, developed and under-developed countries. No country can avoid Inflation, but only control it. Interest Rate is a tool used by Central Bank (Bank of Government) to control Inflation.

- Quick Data Analyst in 32 years, from 1986 -> 1998, Home Value increased from Ave 138,000$ -> 216,000$ = 1.56x or 156%. From 1999 -> 2010, Home Value increased from Ave 229,000 $ -> 432,000$, an increase 1.9x or 190%. From 2010 -> 2018, Home Value increase from Ave 432,000$ -> 800,000$, an increase of 1.85x or 185%. During 32 years, there were 3 Stock Market crashed: Black Monday Oct 1987, Internet .Dot Com bubble in March 2000, Financial Crisis in August, 2008. And Few Housing Coolings, few Economy Recession ... No problems, Toronto Housing goes strong. A person remembers:-  Mortgage Rate very high during 90s in 6.0% -> 8%. Media, News, People talked about Housing went down, very scary. Nobody wanted Home but Rent in 90s. He recalled. -> A lot people were waiting for Interest Rate Down, like now 2018. But nothing no problem happened even such very high Interest Rate.-> Home was flat, then increased 180% near double in 10 years from 1990s -> mid 2000s from 200 thousands something -> 400 thousands something. They missed chances Buy Home in 90s. Right now 2019, Interest Rate 1.75%, expected not changed for a while. Interest Rate in 90s 3x higher than now.

-
Whatever crisis, Home Value still increased in the past 32 years. If you bought a Home in Toronto jump-in at any time in the last 32 years, you will have Good Return around 1.5x or 150% after bought Home in 10 years. Data said so, no mouth, tongue. Right now Interest Rate is still cheap at 1.75% stay for a while, no more increase by BoC. People were talking about the Hype of Toronto Housing since 1990s. Now, in 2019 we still talk about Housing Hype -> Already Hype 30 years ago. Inflation has contributed to some higher Home Price. -> Just recently 2017 when Toronto Housing Cooling, a lot of News predicted Housing Bubble, the Bear came out scare people away. But only minor correction then back to normal. -> The Bear is always waiting for some bad news to come out.

Author: There are tens of thousands Home Owners in Toronto, GTA working hard for their home. What ever happens to Toronto Housing Market, like Home Price goes Down, Downtown Toronto would be the most affected areas in double loses compared to other areas. The Author is just a messenger. If you buy home in Toronto 5 years ago in 2013, you would have $312,500 in 5 years. See Data in this Blog. This money will take 30 years to save. => Few my friends who are " Millionaire Professors ", who bought Home in Toronto 20 years ago. They said after paid for Income Tax, Rent, Car, Vacation, all Living Expensive by their own Standard... They manage to save $150,000 / 10 years.=> That said, even Millionaire Professors have Good Salary would take them 20 years of working to save such money. While Buy Home would take only 5 years. Salary big or small, make ends meet helps you pay Living Expensive. Home helps your Wealth, Net Worth grow. - Do you save $100,000 after working 10 years?

The Author said:- Few my friends "millionaire Professors"  who had Home 20 years ago. He implies that "Millionaire Professors" not because they have good salary, but because they bough Home in Toronto 20 years ago. Which made them millionaire. Still take them at least 20 years. Not easy. -> The Author doesn't say he is millionaire nor millionaire Professor. As a Canadian, he still makes ends meet, still has Debt like every one. There are tens of thousands of People own homes in Toronto. He is messenger to send good message Buy Home if you want to grow Wealth. If you can't Buy Home, or missed Home Run -> OK, accept it. Saving for Next time. -> Follow this Blog. We will make sense using Data.  

In any country, regardless your backgrounds, your social classes, rich, poor, you work hard, climb mountain, contribute to society, good citizen. Starting from nothing, no money, no privilege, you become Scientist, Engineer, whatever, become Millionaire. Whatever country they will welcome citizens like you.    

As scientist, we use Data no biases, exaggeration.
Some people have no background in Data Science. They often used mouth & tongue, easier, faster fire direct from mouth & tongue than from brain and research. Because you need to Do Research in order to Get Data, take time. Recommend reading Build & Implement Database System & Data Management at left side of this website. CANDO = Collect Data, Analyze Data, Normalize Data, Design Data, Organize Data.

Update: May, 2019 - Continue update until end of month
 

- Click here see Toronto and GTA map.

Average Home Price Toronto =$903,992 = Average Price of All Properties: Detach + Semi detach + Town Home + Condos. When Average Home Price up doesn't mean Average Listing Home Price update right away. But gives the Buyers & Sellers understand more about its Home's value. That's why you usually see Home Price after sold much more than Price Listing. Usually the Sellers's Listing Price lower to invite people come see and Price bidding. => The decision to Buy & Sell of Home Price depend on the Sellers & Buyers.
*** Important News May, 2019 **

1) Detached-Home market, Home Sales has increased significantly = 21%. But Home Price increase just a little bit = 1.35 millions dollars in Toronto. But outside Toronto, in GTA (905), Detached Home Price falls. Because Stress Test makes it harder to qualify higher mortgage.
- Vancouver Detached-Home =
1.43 millions, rank #4 Home Price in the world. Home Sale down 29.1% -> Home Price dropped doesn't make Buyers Market. Lesson learn in both Vancouver and Toronto. In Spring 2017, Home Price Toronto at peak, very high, Detach Home 1.5 millions. But people line-up, multi offers.

- Where People want Home Affordability?

1.1 millions -> 1.2 millions dollars. Condos is the winner Sales up 30% and Price up:6% = $637,181.

3) For people wants Home, but can't afford Detached because Stress Test make it even more expensive, and Property Tax of Semi detached much less than Detached -> They choose Semi-detached. Detached, Semi-Detached both Categorized as
A Million Dollars Home, its Ave more than a millions dollars. -> That's why Semi-detached always up both Sales & Price.
 

- Home Sales substantially up 16.8%, Home Price soar as Spring Market finally begins to Take off. While Vancouver sees Home Sales 43% down below 10 years average, and 29.0 % down compared to last years. In Vancouver, Average Home Price = $1,011,200 - Condos = $656,900. Townhouse: $783,300

Specially Detach-Home see Home Sales up 20%. substantially & Home Price flat around 1.35 millions (at peak 1.5 millions in Spring 2017).

=>Who is responsible for Toronto Hosing stable and strong?
- Wealth creates Wealth. In any country, rich Middle Class is created in the biggest City. In 20 -> 30 years, Middle Class Toronto has seen their wealth up significantly, creating 2/3 millionaire population of Canada's 4.8% millionaire population in the world, only 2nd after US 7.1%, Japan 2.7%, South Korean 1.8%, German 3.3%. See Millionaire Households Rank in the World. Click here -> While Vancouver population only 650,000 people, less than 15 times Toronto & GTA population of 9.6 millions. => It is Toronto Middle Class responsible for Housing Toronto stable, not down like Vancouver.
- Use Data we also proved that Middle Class Toronto 2 x times more capital access than New York city, and Tokyo 's middle class, where average Home Price around $400,000. While 60% American, UK 51%, Japan 48.9%, Canadian 49% have less than $100,000. See Millionaire Households Rank in the World. Click here -> Data reflects the reality.

-> Who have capital can afford Home in Toronto. Is it Toronto Home Affordable? -> Depend on whom you talk to about Home Affordable. To some people yes, to some others no -> On average, a 20 years Middle Class Toronto can afford to buy 4 x A Million Dollars Homes satisfy 20% deposit for each home. That's why even Toronto Home Price is high, but there are always people who can afford. You need to use Data. See our Blog.

NOTE: Only Dumb and Idiot keep cash in bank account and Show off Cash, Spending gradually to nothing. Most smart people invest their money in Stock or Home gradually to something. Middle Class has 90% their capital access in Home. And they try to pay off Mortgage as soon as possible. 10 years longer like pay off Home 20 y vs. 30 years -> Could cost them at least $150,000 for Interest in 5 years. Car, Money lost value because of inflation. A car, after few years, lost near 1/2.

Behaviour Economics: Study about the effect of Emotional Intelligence, Cognitive Decision, Culture, Society, Psychology of Individuals on irrational making decision economically. It helps us measurable, understand Human Behaviour better when they react to different Economic Situation, and Economic Policy. From Behaviour Economics, we can develop Policy, design Models of Consumerism's Behaviour in order to response to change in Policy and Market Condition. Which makes the difference between Tradition Economics and Behaviours Economics.
Image result for behaviour economics
For example, from Behaviour Economics (Economics of Reality - Must have Life Experience. Wear different shoes. Use Game Theory, scientists can predict the outcome. ), we can predict or measure that Stress Test will cause Higher Rent because people react to it. It happened. Rent in Toronto has increased 11% in 2019.

Another Example,
Own 1 x a million dollar Home with 90% ownership or Own 5 x a million dollars Homes with 20% of Ownership. What choice? -> 65% people will choose own 5 x Homes, richer. Because they see Gains of 5 x Homes but ignore the Losses, or not Think about the Losses of 4 milllions in debt, only 20% Ownership, a lot risks like Interest up, Home Price down or flat, loss job, Tenants vs. Landlord problems, a lot of Taxes like Property Tax, Home Maintenance, Work longer, Climb to Top of Mountain longer. People refer Gains, hate Losses.

Another Example of Behaviour Economics. Which of the following would you prefer:
A) A certain win of $250, versus
B) A 25% chance to win $1000 and a 75% chance to win nothing?
-> 60% people choose A) for certain gain $250 (like Gains) even only small gain than choose B) a lot riskier 75% not win, even win big $1000.
How about:
C) A certain loss of $750, versus
D) A 75% chance to lose $1000 and a 25% chance to lose nothing?
-> 65% people would choose D) because 25% chance lose nothing even small 25% (hate Loss), ignore big 75% could lose up to $1000 or A) certain loss of $750

 

NOTE: Use Game Theory is about Making Choices or Decisions, Scientists can predict the outcome.

** Important News ***

1) What is in Toronto:

Home Price in Toronto (416) including:
City of Toronto and its Districts (Municipalities) are: North York, East York, Old City of Toronto (Downtown or Entertainment District) and Etobicoke.
And (905) surrounding Districts are: Brampton, Markham, Vaughn, Richmond Hills, Pickering, Ajax, Durham, Peel, Mississauga, Oakville, Scarborough ...

Toronto = Old Toronto (416) + GTA (905) = 9.6 millions

Look at the Toronto map below including: City of Toronto and GTA

2) In March, Home Sales flat or stable, and Home Price edge up 1.5%. It's good news.

3) In Toronto:
Detached Home around 1.25 millions and Semi Detached Home around 1.1 millions. Both are in a Million dollars Home. Price not much changed.

4) Good News: Toronto Home Sales & Home Price good, stable, Price edge up, in contrast to Vancouver's down.
=
> This could be a signal of the beginning of hot Toronto Housing Market

5) Stress Test and Lack of Supply are top issues in Toronto Housing market this spring.

A Scientist Professor
explained:
To Solve Problems you need understand Problems scientifically. Let's look at Stress Test & Lack of Supply, which are main issues in Toronto Housing market for a while. We found these issues long time ago not just now:

A) Demand issue:
Stress Test continues impact on Home Sales down because less Home Buyers qualify for mortgage, and thus put pressure on Home Price not jump too much juicy.

- Stress Test: has big impact on Demand Side, Home Sales down because less people qualify for mortgage. -> Demand D1 shift left dropped -> D2. As a result, it puts more pressure on Home Price not jump too much juicy = P1 reduced to P2. Home Supply like Home Builder, Construction, Home Listing fall from Quantity: Q1 -> Q2. Less Home Sales thus less people want to build more Homes, less construction.
NOTE: People think Stress Test is used to Test people if they qualify for mortgage. But actually Stress Test is the Tool to Control Home Price by Control Home Buyers, Less Buyers from Demand Side perspective.

B) Supply Issue:
-> Home Builder, Construction reduced, Home Listing fall. Thus less Home Supply on market -> Home Price edge up.

Supply Issue: - Since lack of Supply Homes like less Home Builders, Construction New Homes, Home Listing fall means less people sell their homes. Thus less Home Supply in market. -> Supply Shift left dropped (lack of supply) from S1 -> S2 -> Quantity of Home Supply reduced from Q1 -> Q2. Home Buyers compete for "limited Quantity of Home Supply" in market. -> Home Price P1 increases to P2.
 
=> As a result, all of these Supply factors push Home Price continues higher. But not too much high because of Stress Test impact on Home Price from Demand Side.

Therefore, you always see or hear in the news: -
Home Price continues slightly higher or edge up. While Home Sales down, Home Supply low, Home Listing fall.

So 64K Question: - Should we eliminate Stress Test like many others in Real Estate Industry, including Pres. of Toronto Real Estate Board asking for in order to boost the Demand for Home Sales?
-> We will explain later the Pros and Cons.

- Why Home Sales down but Home Price up. Scientifically prove. Not mouth, tongue.
- Average Home Price in big 5 cities Canada including Vancouver
.
- Why Toronto good, staple, price continues edge up but Vancouver's plunge? - Who are heavy lifting Toronto Housing?
- And many other issues.
-> At least we give you some scientific explanation.


- This is from North York District Real Estate. Under, it said that:- North York is a municipality within the current city of Toronto. North York is a second Economic Hub after Downtown Toronto. Population around 710,000 (2018), Vancouver around 632,000. City of Toronto include: North York, East York, Etobicoke, and Old City of Toronto or Toronto Downtown, where Financial Center of Canada, Banks, Stock Market, Govt Agencies, Univ of Toronto, TV Stations, Broadcasters.. (majority Whites Canadian in many generation). The rest surrounding (905 - phone code) GTA (Greater Toronto Area) like: Vaughan (majority Italian, Western European like Portuguese, Greek, Spain...), Markham (majority East Asian: - Chinese: Vietnamese, Philippines, Korean, Japanese..) , Richmond Hill (majority East Asian..), Brampton (majority South Asian: Indian, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Siri Lanca..) Mississauga (35% East Asian, South Asian 25%).
=> Of course they are all Canadian only different backgrounds.
=> Toronto + GTA = 9.6 millions population, bigger population than New York city and Its Districts 8.5 millions.


Average Home Price Toronto =
$903,992 = Average Price of All Properties: Detach + Semi detach + Town Home + Condos. When Average Home Price up doesn't mean Average Listing Home Price update right away. But gives the Buyers & Sellers understand more about its Home's value. That's why you usually see Home Price when sales much more than Price Listing. Usually the Sellers's Listing Price lower to invite people come see and Price bidding.

NOTE
In Canada has 2 biggest Universities are: York University, #2nd in North York, the most International Students of Canada Universities, after University of Toronto #1st in Downtown Toronto. In the map Toronto is referring to City Toronto Downtown, it is called Entertainment District of Toronto (like North York District, North of Toronto), where is the Financial Hubs Center of Canada like Banks, Stock Market  ...A lot people live in North York don't even know North York is in current City of Toronto, big population, second Economic Hub of Toronto after Downtown Toronto.

NOTE: Home Price also is changing depend on different Districts. In North York Ave Home Price of all Types of Properties is around 1.1 millions. In GTA Brampton
(594,000) Ave Home Price around 690,000$, in GTA Mississauga (750,000 population, 6th largest cities in Canada), Ave Home Price around 712,000$, GTA Markham (329,000) $897,000, GTA Vaughn (306,000), $962,000, GTA Ajax $650,987, GTA Pickering $639,000. GTA Peel $713,000 ... While GTA Ave Home Price of All Properties (Home, Town Home, Condos) in May 2019 around $820,148.

Ave Home Price 5 biggest Cities in March, 2019 release on April, 2019:
-
In March, 2019, Vancouver, 663,000 population, ave Home Price = $1,027,515, Town home = $783,600, Condos = $656,900. Sales plunge lowest since many decades, 7.7% price dropped compared to last year. -> A detached home in the region is $1,437,100. Which is -10.5% lower then March 2018, -0.4% decrease from February 2019. While Toronto, Detached-Home March, 2019 Ave = 1.25 millions, at peak 2017, around 1.5 millions - Most heavy losses in Toronto is Detached Home, while other Properties like Semi-Detached 1.1 million, Town home $741,881, Condos $603,969, see an increase or no lost. While in Vancouver, its peak, Detached Home Ave 1.75 millions -> Now = $1.43 million, lost = 320,000$.
In conclusion
:
All Properties in Vancouver are losses. Not in Toronto only Detached Home lost, other Property Types no lost or increase. Vancouver Sales plunge but Toronto Sales stable. -> Which are the differences between 2 markets. Currently, Vancouver Rank #4  most expensive Home Price in the world.
- Montreal, 2rd biggest City Canada after Toronto 1.75 millions population, Ave Home Price = $353,400 flat, Calgary, 1.26 millions population, Oil Producers = $409,800 down, Ottawa, 884,000 population, Capital, Ave = $400,800 down, Kitchener- Waterloo, 234,000 population, Hi-tech, Start-up, Head Office of Black Berry, Nortel, Ave Home = $505,855, Price up 3.4% compared to last year, but Sales down 7%.

- Have 1 x a million dollars Home 90% Ownership or Have 5 x a million Homes, each 20% Ownership?

Rather have 5 x a million Homes
20% each (not 10% of a million Home -> Don't Buy Home less than 20%), more Debt, more Interest Payment. Interest begins up trend, long road hardship ahead another 20 years. Own 5 x a million dollars is not richer but poorer (common people think rich. OMG, own 5 x a million homes. Not scientist), more debt = 4 millions dollars debt, very risky, Stress Test. Own 5 Homes are Bank's Home, ownership less than 50%. Bank can take Home away any time if payment not meet. -> Better Have 1 x a million dollars Home 90% Ownership on Top Mountain.

-> Use DATA: -
A Scientist in Montreal 20 years ago, Ave Home 225,000$. A Scientist in Toronto 20 years ago, Ave Home around 217,000$ -> Today, Montreal Home 350,000$. Montréal Scientist approximately Wealth around $300,000 with $50,000 mortgage left. While Toronto Scientist's Wealth 1.2 millions dollars, 4 x time more. Both Scientist work hard 20 years Time & Money, but ROI different. Millionaire Toronto Scientist 1.2 millions in 20 years. Montreal Scientist take 2 x Generation become millionaires. Just Grade 5 math. So Where You Live Makes Different.

- A Scientist Professor said: - As a Canadian, I grow up, live in North York more than 20 years. I have seen its changing so rapidly.

 

- Millionaire Scientist Professor in Toronto.
Is possible? - Yes. In Toronto.

NOTE: Canada like any country, your country. It is not easy to become millionaire. Canada 4.8% millionaire population 2nd after US 7.1%, Japan 2.7%, South Korean 1.8%, German 3.2%.
-> Every one wants to become millionaire. The reason I talk about millionaire Scientist Professor because I know their salary 20 years ago that others don't understand. This salary can help them achieve this dream easily. They can Buy multi homes or Buy Home with Deposit at least 30%.
1)
Must go back 20 years ago to have such opportunity. One Scientist Professor said nearly missed if work as Software Developer.
2) Take
20 years Work hard. Climb mountain. No easy.
3) Must Buy Home at least 20% Deposit reduce Interest Payment, faster Ownership on Top Mountain

Click See Cheque of a Professor. This cheque helped Get in Middle Class in 1 year, 30% Deposit. Don't wait get in early. I can tell 20 years ago. However, I can't tell you salary of Professor now. Make a guest look up minimum wage increased from 6$ to 14$/hr now, although a bit faster than other career.
NOTE
: Canadian Government every year publishes Name of all Public Sector Employees, who salary made over 100,000$ called "Sunshine List". This cheque 20 years ago, by inflation adjusted, value of money decreased value. This cheque today around $150,000, while value of Home after 20 years increased 4 x times from 217,000$ -> 840,000$. This cheque would qualify for "Sunshine List" today. In 2017, 131,909 People made over 100,000$ out of 8 millions people working.
->
Don't keep Cash in Bank Account. Car, Money lost value By Inflation. Put money in Home piggy Bank for Saving Money, or in Stock (risky - in past 20 years 2 x times Stock Market crashed in 2000, 2008).

NOTE: 20 years ago, Software Developer 12.0$ / hr, Teacher 11$ /hr, Scientist 15$/ hr, Factory Worker, Restaurant Server minim wage 5.50$ -> 6.0$ / hr. In Canada, people get paid by the position they get hired. No mouth & tongue.

A Scientist Professor said
: -> If 20 years ago I started early my career as Software Developer, I probably would not Get In Middle Class. Because it would take me working at least 10 years saving Buy Home. But then Toronto Home Price increased fast to double in 10 years. Missed it.
-> Lived in any
Industrialized Country like Canada, US, Japan, Europe, and any Development Country you have to pay Tax & Rent (or Mortgage). After Income Tax (25%), Rent or Mortgage (45%), Car, Car Insurance, Gas, Food & Restaurant, Phone, Grocery, Entertainment, Vacation ..In Canada Hospital, Education Free. -> Just Income Tax + Rent = 70% your Income. Nothing left for Saving or Buy Home. That's why Home helps Middle Class increase their Wealth, add on multi trillions dollars into Economy.

In 1998-1999,
Ave Home Price in Toronto 217,000$ -> In 2010, Ave Home Price in Toronto $435,000 double in 10 years.
In 2008 - 2009,
Huge Financial Crisis like Tsunami. Subprime Mortgage. Stock Market Crashed. Housing Bubble in Toronto, and in US. People abandoned their Home. -> Then Toronto Housing was recovery fast start in 2010, keep up, up.. higher to in spring 2017, Ave Toronto Home Price of all Properties near 1 million dollars -> Then start Cooling till now 2018. Now Ave Toronto All Properties  = 840,000$. Still double in 8 years from 2010, $435,000 -> Feb, 2019, 840,200$.

Toronto is Center of Financial Hub, Manufacture Hub of Canada, produced more than more than 1/2 all Products & Services of Canada. While Vancouver only 650,000 population, mainly Tourism, Film, TV productions.

- People predict Housing Toronto Market go down since 20 years ago.
It did went down, Toronto Housing Bubble during Financial Crisis in 2008-2009. But then it was recovery quickly after 2 years in 2010, and double in 8 years since it went down bubble in 2008-2009. Use Data, Scientist can prove something, forecast better accuracy than people use mouth and tongue. Because Data Said So.

=> Data could make you Love, Hate, Jealous, Like It or Not, but it reflects Reality, no Biases. Scientists just present Data in different ways help people understand, avoid biases.

 

Important News in March

- Home Listings fall. Less people selling their Home -> Thus Home Supply less on market. -> Put more pressure on Home Price increase. As we said before Home Price in Toronto driven by Supply Side.
NOTE: Usually, when sell Home, people List lower to attract Buyers to see Home and Price bidding war.

- Weather in February, 2019 continues heavy Snow storm, slippery road never see in many decades. -> Less people Buy/Sell Homes in such conditions.

-> Home Sales Down 2.4 % compared last year.

-> Stress Test still a major challenging for Home Buyers, drive down Home Sales. On average, Home Buyers will need qualify extra $700 / month to qualify for Home. For example before no Stress Test, your mortgage 3000$, now you must have salary or income $3700 to qualify Buy Home. In order word, before Stress Test, you need Income or Salary $100,000, now Stress Test, you may need Income $120,000 ( extra 20K)

-> ** Good News ** Interest Rate temporary not rising, still at 1.75%, last time in Oct. Very good news for Home Buyer.

-> Toronto is propose Property Tax hike. Which is making a lot noise in media. Property Tax, paid by Middle Class, is a main source of revenue of the City to pay for Staff Salary (more than 10,000), Policing, Garbage Collection, Services ...

- Population Canada grows fastest in G7, since 1980s. Toronto sees Population grow by 100,000 / year from immigrants, not including baby born here. Which is pushing more demand on Home, Rent. -> But Canada has the least population only 37 milllions, while ave population in G7 is 60 millions. On ave 300,000 migrants come to Canada / year, around 33% come to Toronto. Will take 10 years Canada to reach 40 millions. Still very low. Canada need more migrants to grow Economy. Although Canada least population only 37 millions. But Toronto has the most population 9.6 millions in US & Canada (huge Home Demand) compared to most population in US New York City 1st in US 8.5 millions, 2nd Los Angles: 3.8 millions, 3rd Chicago: 2.7 millions. Tokyo Japan 9.2 millions. More than 50% Toronto population from different backgrounds.

Top 10 happiest Countries in the world by UN 2019:
1. Finland
2. Denmark
3. Norway
4. Iceland
5. Netherlands
6. Switzerland
7. Sweden
8. New Zealand
9. Canada
(only country in G7, dropped from 7th last year)
10. Australia

- US 19), UK 15), Japan 58) German 17) Singapore 34) but 2nd Happiest Country in Asia, behind Taiwan 1st in Asia 25) in the world.

It looks at: Income (GDP/ Capital) , Freedom, Trust, Health, Life, Social Support, Generosity, Openness. The report says: - It is kind of place people want to live.
NOTE: If you look at these top 10 countries, they have good Social Safety Net, Health Care, Education.

 

NOTE: This Ave Home Price including all types of Properties: Detached & Semi-Detached Home, Town home, Condos. Detached Home still most expensive Home, but high Property Tax (2x more than Semi - Detached around $500 -> $700 / mo, while Semi: around 199$ -> 349$ / month ), then Semi-detached, Town home, Condos. Home Price high is not big or small home, but all above Location, Renovation -> 50K Renovation could return 80K extra values.

As we said,
for fair calculation frequency distribution the right way, Real state used Average all Properties for a whole City. -> You don't pick-up Home Price in millions at few expensive areas then used it as Home Price for a whole City. It is exaggeration. For example, New York City, Ave Home around $400,000 from Business Insider.

Forecast Toronto Housing for 2019 All forecast for 2019 Toronto Housing, all types of Properties will be improving, higher Home Sales, moderate Home Price grow. It could return to its peak in 2017 after 2 years cooling.
Home Buyers are adjusting to Stress Test, other rules. Good time Buy Home now, while Interest still at historic low. If you sit and wait for Supply side, more home builders build more Affordable Housing, could take a lot of time, at least 5 - 10 years.  And tens of thousands more new Homes, still a small amount will not satisfy the Demand for home. President of Toronto Real estate Board said: " It is encouraging to see the slight increase in January transactions on a year-over-year basis, even with the inclement weather experienced in the GTA region during the last week of the month. The fact that the number of transactions edged upwards is in line with TREB's forecast for higher sales in calendar year 2019."

Is it Home in Toronto expensive? Who driven?
-> Home like car, all kinds of cars. Depend on who you talk affordable. Buy Home need Money. Who has money $200,000 for a Deposit? -> Toronto Middle Class. As we always said that it is Middle Class heavy lifting Economy. See Bottom up Economics in Blog. Middle Class buy second Home, upgrade their property i.e. from Town Home -> Detach, Semi, invest, co-sign their relatives, their children ... Why Middle Class? Because there are millions of them more than few thousands upper class, and they have money & resources than Working Class.

Different with Vancouver Film, TV production, Tourism Industry, Toronto is a biggest City of Canada, and #3 in North America, where the Center of Financial Hub, the Banks, Stock Exchange, Manufacture Hubs of Canada are in Toronto. It is 9.5 millions, 15 times population bigger, 15 times x more homes, richer than Vancouver 630,000 population. We see and proven, a lot Toronto Middle Class became Millionaire or approximately Millionaire. We also see Middle Class Toronto, just 5 years, has increased their Wealth add-on $300,000.

On average, a Middle Class Toronto can afford 3 x Homes.
They are much better position, more Capital Buy Home. Because:

1) Stress Test doesn't apply for people already bought home before 2018 unless they transfer their mortgage to a different lenders or Banks. Start application over again. But some Banks don't care. They get approved easily. Because they already bought Home before 2018. Stress Test apply for people Buy Home after 2018.

2) To Buy Home in Toronto, all you need is a Toronto Middle Class Home Owner co-sign used their Home as collateral. -> Then much better chances pass Stress Test, be approved fast. OK.

** 3) ** Middle Class Home Owner bought Home before 2018,
don't need pass Stress Test to Buy 2nd Home
. They have proved that they own home, can pay million dollars mortgage for more than 10 years. Although most of Households still have debt like credit card.
In Canada, Mortgage is the 1st priority. Can't be late, in order to keep home, even stay hungry, more important than food. Debt is part of life in Industrialized Country like Canada. Debt helps GDP grow, because citizen borrow money, for Spending, Buy more Products & Services, Buy Home, Leverage their potentials like create business, create jobs. Everyone has debt. No big deal. If you miss payment Home Mortgage debt. The bank will take home away. That's why in Canada, a lot people abandoned, gave up dream, dropped, default their Home Ownership after 10 years. But after you own your home for a long time, like more than 10 years, your mortgage payment gradually faster reduced smaller. Your mortgage payment / mo very small, Home 3 bed-rooms much much less than Rent 1-bedroom. And you also Rent out for extra income. So you don't worry much like people Buy Home less than 10 years that their Mortgage cost more than Rent alot. People reason Rent save more than Buy Home are dumb. Remember: ** Every year -> Mortgage keeps reducing to $0.0. Rent keeps increasing to unaffordable. Rent is a biggest debt, took 1/2 income** -> Even a lot smart people, smart Financial Advisors, Business Professors, Bank Analyst still don't understand. They say Home is the big debt. Wrong. Short term, Yes. Long term, No. -> They use Emotional Intelligence by instinct of Human Evolution since thousands years ago, even have Data. But we said Rent is the biggest debt for Generations. -> You have to choose one Home or Rent.

4)
  Middle Class Home Owner Toronto has better position than Foreign Buyer, because they are Canadian, Own Home. Official Gov's Data from Stat Can that less than 7% Foreigners own Home in Toronto, not Landed Immigrants. Of course there are rich Landed Immigrants Buy Home, they are not foreigners. Data shows around 25% Landed Immigrants Buy Home. Landed Immigrants also have hard time Buy Home. Although have money, but they need Job to Buy Home.

5) Canada has 4.8% of Middle Class Home Owner Millionaires 2nd after US 7.1%, more Millionaires than
Japan 2.7%, German 3.2%, Singapore 4%. Most of them live in biggest City Toronto.

A Toronto Middle Class Home Owner said:
- Thank you so much. We just bought Home this month. You help us understand and confident so much to Buy Home, Keep Home more than other sources, more than Financial Advisors, more than Real Estate Agent. You understand Middle Class issues, their challenging. We don't matter whatever ups/ downs. We Buy Home -> Save Rent. -> Have Something. We follow the road of Households Millionaires in Toronto.
Answer:
Welcome on the road to Household Millionaires. People lack of Data, blind. They can't see far. -> Short term benefits vs. Long term benefits. They see only in 5 years. Thank you.

What is Toronto in the world? -> A Global Olympics.

- Toronto 9.6 million population,
Ave Home Price in Toronto $800,000, while New York, 8.5 population, ave Home Price $400,000 from Business Insider. Tokyo population 9.2 millions, Ave Home Price $247,000 (30 million yen) . Home like car, is the best indicator about a person, a place that can afford.  -> Like you go to a town where people drive Mercedes, and another town where people drive Hyundai. As we said,
in any country, most rich, millionaire Middle Class created and live in the biggest City, not in the Capital, same as in Canada. Home Price Toronto is driven by rich Toronto Middle Class. As we said: - Where you live can make a big difference, an investment for life, for generation -> A lot immigrants don't live in Canada for long. They don't understand Canada, Location, Demographics. The advice for Migrants, Immigrants:- Choose the biggest City in a country, and you settle there for Generation if you want your children good future. Because the biggest City is an icon, a drive of Economy for that country. Took hundred of years to build & grow biggest City, never fail. If it fails country fails. If it becomes poor, country becomes poor. If it gets sneezed, a whole country gets flu.
However, not all people live in the big City, or move from Towns, Provinces to live in big City become success, become Scientists, Professors, become Millionaires. In the big City like Toronto, first multi-cultures in the world, where more than 100 Nations, mostly from China, Indian, Japan, Korean, Vietnamese, Philippines, Europeans, Blacks ... Toronto where rich Migrants, poor Migrants, start life Migrants, talented Migrants, cheap labour skills Migrants live, create a lot of competitions, like competitions in Olympics, a good competition between good players. In Local Competition, local Athletics in their own Group, their own Community are Good. But in Global Olympic Competition like Toronto, they have to compete with Global Talents, very different with Local Competition. ->  In a Global Competition is very challenging than live and compete Local same people, same ideas, same language, same culture, like Homogeneous Society, as see in many Asia Countries, where 99% Homogeneous society.

NHK TV, on March, 2019 NHK NewsLine said :- Japan has problems to keep Top Global Talents. More than 50% quit after 6 months, because hardly adapt to Japan's Society. Mr. Mabuchi, President and CEO of Sanei Hytech said: - From now on, they are looking for Global Talents who love Japan Culture, fit in its culture. Which is main reason why Global Talents left. -> They feel not inclusive. But Mr. Mabuchi is also right because he lives in Japan - one culture society. In US, Canada, people all kinds of backgrounds in the world can come here Study, Live, Work. And still be themselves. -> Mr. Mabuchi should out of his well, travel abroad, live and work in foreign countries like Europe, US, Canada, special in Toronto, few years like Global Talents. For sure, he will change his mind, and understand more about Global Talents, wear their shoes.

Wang,
a Developer from China got hired just because he loved Pokémon. Lee Chi from Taiwan got hired, because he loves Japan Castle, according to NHK.
Can you hire the right people, right talent if they just love Pokémon, Castle, Love you? -> Unlikely so. I love Japan Culture, Japan food, NHK. Can Japanese Company hired me? -> Unlikely. Same as. I am a Canadian, graduated from Top Canadian University. I love Canada, live & work in Canada more than 20 years, contributed alot in Taxes as 20 years Middle Class. - Can Canadian Company hired me when need Job? -> Unlikely. I see a lot New Comers, just Came, Get job. They don't need love Canada. They work, send money home. -> Really glad for them. Canadian companies don't hire people just because they love Canada. That's why Toronto like Olympics, where people all the world, with different backgrounds can contribute their best talents.

Toronto Home Price is the best indicator
about Toronto
about Place, People can afford to drive Mercedes, while other places, people can afford drive Hyundai. Toronto increases Canada Middle Class Millionaires By Population in 2nd in the world only after US, near double Japan's Millionaire population. Like Stock, when company grows, stock increases value, keeps higher. When company goes down, stock lost value. Time get out like City Detroit in US, one time a City of Cars symbolized Prosperity US Car Industry. Now, Detroit City of Ghost Town, nobody wants to live there even Free Home.

There are so many big cities in the world, 3 x Generations still poor, poverty. Can't grow any more.
Like Mexico, Brazil, in many development Countries, even many big Cities in US, Canada like Montreal, 1.7 million population (Toronto 9.6 million), 2nd biggest City in Canada, where ave Home Price today around $350,000, 20 years ago, around $225,000$ = Same as Toronto Ave Home Price in 1998 = $216,815, 20 years ago. So if you live Montreal for 2 x Generation, or Buy Home 20 years ago in Montreal, your Time & Money no ROI (Return On Investment), hardly become millionaire dream. Scientists look at few Data, Living Expensive, Income, Have fun, Education, Hospital ... Scientists can forecast 35 years, 25 -> 60 years old, can see your future is already determined -> Doesn't mater you are Scientist, Professor, Doctor... Unless you are children of the Rich & The Privileges. While in Toronto, we have seen just 1/2 Generation, just normal people working hard -> They become Millionaire, keep growing. -> Which best describes Toronto in few words.
- Can Toronto will fail like Detroit in US?
- Very interesting question. Will answer later
- New York Ave Home Price around $400,000, what tell you?
- It tells me that New York, Center Financial, biggest City of US, just like US, the big gap between Rich & Poor so wide. At Downtown New York, Middle Class so rich, millionaires, billionaires. US by Population 7.1% millionaire, billionaire, very high, while Canada 4.8%, Japan 2.7%, Singapore 4%, German 3.2%, Hong Kong 3.3%. But Districts around New York (like Toronto GTA, Greater Toronto Areas) very poor Districts, poor Middle Class.
So poor that the Result of Ave Home Price around $400,000. Unlike Toronto, the gap Rich & Poor between Toronto and GTA small, OK, reflects in its Ave Home Price. Real Estate used Ave Home Price to avoid pick-up few luxury condos w orth millions in Downtown as a Property Price for a whole New York city, which is exaggerate, not right.

- So why Japan, the best culture, civilized society, Japanese people very nice, the best country in Asia still can't keep Global Talents? -> Hard to recruit Talents. But harder to keep them. Most of them quit after 6 months although Good Pay, because hard to adapt to Japan Culture 99%. People love visit, travel Japan, but hardly Live & Work there. Hard to live in Homogenous Society, where 99% are same, only 1% different, hard fit in if not same Japan people. Companies in Toronto open more to diverse, different backgrounds employees in order to attract talents. => Otherwise they will leave to other company. Or Start-up their own company. -> Talents want to work in environment where they have freedom of thoughts and ideas,  innovate, think out of the Box. Company has same people with same ideas, same backgrounds -> The result will lack of ideas, copy ideas, not open different ideas. 40% of S&P 500 Companies, biggest companies in the world, are built by CEOs in different backgrounds.

-> A Scientist Professor said: - Need help. I can modernize your City, your Company like Toronto as Advisor. I live in Toronto long enough, and wear many shoes. What should be changed?
-> People make decision based on "
Boundary Rationality" looking from their well, or thru windows, or Where they come from. If follow my Blog, I am the first to see Toronto Housing is driven by Supply Side, and I proved it. Why Home Sales down but Home Price keeps Up. I am big fan of MacroEconomics, MicroEconomics, specially Behaviour Economics, and Bottom Up Economics. With Background as Data Scientist, I like to use Data to explain things, complex things, problems solving that people can't. I wear many different shoes, unlike rich millionaire Middle Class Scientists, who don't have Life Experience like me.
-> If open your mind, we can change.
See things as Scientist, not Politics.

- What would first thing you would do if you are in Leadership in few words?
-> Increase Minimum wage. Pull people at bottom out of poverty. Then you will see not just Economy, Consumer Spending, but also Poverty improve. Reduce gap between Rich & Poor. Then you will see Business Efficiency, Productivity improve not by cheap labour but by Technology, Manage & Operate efficient. In China, minimum wage increased many times, as result GDP also increased triple. China Consumer Spending account for 70% - 75% GDP.
NOTE
: Currently, Canada, Ontario, Toronto has the highest Minimum Wage in G7, increased 20% from $11.50 in 2017 -> 14.0$. in 2018. So if you want to help people at Bottom, increase Minimum Wage.

- Scientist can forecast your Future by looking at Data in Holistic View, Data Relationship, Such as, Globalization, Local Economy, Word Economy, Where You Live, Big City around the World, G7 Richest Industrialized Countries, GDP / Capital (2nd after US), Minimum Wage (1st in Industrialized Country), Social Class, Population Growth, Immigrants .. Scientists can predict your Future in 35 years: from 25 -> 60 years old, and in at least 2 x Generation. Doesn't matter you are Scientist, Doctor, Professor....
- If you are Migrants, you will choose the best Destination for your Life, for Generation. Europe, Asia, North America, City... Where You Live will change your Life, ROI, Time & Money. For example, Live in Europe in 3 x Generation, you will never be European. -> Not in Canada, Toronto, you can be your own Background, be Yourself, and be Canadian.
 
-> Why Toronto successful with Ave Home A Million Dollars -> Why not happen to other big Cities in Canada, and around the World, even New York biggest and richest City, Down Jones Stock Market, in the World, not just in US?

- You don't see it because You live in your well. Until you jump out your well. That's why Scientists used Data, no mouth, tongue. It takes educated Scientist 25 years to Live Thru, Wear many Shoes, Experience, and See it. -> Then Use Data. -> What has changed in the past 25 years.

- Scientist can forecast your Future.

In 2008 - 2009,
Huge Financial Crisis, Subprime Mortgage,  like Tsunami. Stock Market Crashed. Housing Bubble in Toronto, and in US. People abandoned their Home. -> Then Toronto Housing was recovery fast start in 2010, keep up, up.. higher to in spring 2017, Ave Toronto Home Price of all Properties near 1 million dollars -> Then start Cooling till now 2018. Now Ave Toronto Home Price All Properties  = 840,000$. Still double in only 8 years from 2010, $435,000 -> Feb, 2019, 840,200$. Since dropped from peak 2017, Detached Home lost most, Ave lost $250,000 / Home from 1.5 m -> 1.25m. -> While all other Properties like Semi 1.1 m, Town Home 765,000$, Condos 613,000$ -> See increase or no lost.

=>
Canada's Housing Growth, Strong, Healthy is good for millions (not just Toronto) of Canadian Middle Class own Home, and good for Canada Economy, add on Multi-Trillions dollars into Wealth, Bottom-up Middle Class Canadian, who are working very hard for their home. And Home is their only benefit. This Wealth is filtering into Economy, benefit for every one. Small Businesses used their Home as Business Loan to open Restaurant, Store Small Business -> Create 2/3 jobs. Toronto is biggest City of Canada -> What is Good for Toronto will Good for Canada. Toronto gets sneezed, Canada gets flu.

- Should Stress Test kept to control Price? -> Likely so on Demand Side. But -> Stress Test no effect on Supply Side. Thus Home Price continues slightly higher. As we said Toronto Home Price slightly high driven by Supply Side. -> Stress Test is pushing Rent higher, in Toronto 2019 up 11% alot, Because less people qualify Buy Home. So they Rent. -> Stress Test also makes Detached Home Price down, less demand. -> Stress Test overall drive Home Sales down, but not Home Price slightly up. Home Sales Down less Tax Revenue. Housing is very big Industry. -> Stress Test makes less people qualify Buy Home, a dream. --> Stress Test doesn't know, doesn't count that Rent Income, Family, Relatives Sharing Rent help pay mortgage. -> Stress Test by design, assume, make sure people Buy Home can pay mortgage when Interest up. But actually people abandon home, can't pay mortgage because Lost Job. Of course Interest up affects Mortgage payment, but Home Owners can handle it. This called Behaviour Economics.

See: In Toronto 1100$ / mo get you Rent a toilet: https://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/canada/in-downtown-toronto-dollar1100-a-month-gets-you-a-toilet-a-hot-plate-and-crushing-sadness/ar-BBUybpR?ocid=spartandhp

Behaviour Economics: Study about the effect of Emotional Intelligence, Cognitive Decision, Culture, Society, Psychology of Individuals on irrational making decision economically. It helps us measurable, understand Human Behaviour better when they react to different Economic Situation, and Economic Policy. From Behaviour Economics, we can develop Policy, design Models of Consumerism's Behaviour in order to response to change in Policy and Market Condition.

-> To understand Behaviour Economics, you have to live, to wear people's different shoes, not just talking with people. It is like I hear a lot people Talk about Toronto. I Talk with people live in Toronto. So I know Toronto. -> Wrong. People can lie, bias, exaggerate, not smart. You have to Live, Experience yourself, Make ends Meet in Toronto few years. Then you can say you know Toronto.

Update: March, 21, 2019.
Some ask:- Is it Home Mortgage is a big debt?

A Scientist Professor said:
- Depend on who you ask. Yes, Home Mortgage is a big debt than Education debt, Car debt. But, depend on what kind of Debt: Good Debt (Education, Mortgage) vs. Bad Debt (Credit Card, Shopping, Car). To me, Mortgage is Good Debt for 25 years. Keep gradually reduced to $0.0. And Make you Have Something, Millionaire. Proven. While RENT is the bad Debt for Generation, keeps increased. Rent made you Nothing, and Debt for Generations not 20 years.

Kevin said: - You have to pay off your mortgage as fast as you can. Because he sees from his millionaire well as millionaire, assume that people can pay off mortgage fast like millionaire. But for normal people take at least 20 years.

If Kevin O'Leary, millionaire Entrepreneur  Venture Capital in Toronto, let's talk.
His advice: https://www.msn.com/en-ca/money/real-estate/kevin-o%E2%80%99leary-this-is-the-no-1-piece-of-advice-about-your-mortgage/vi-BBSn8Pt?ocid=spartanntp

NOTE: Kevin is smart millionaire Scientist Professor, used to be Economic Professor teaching at a high-end Economic School training MBA, CEO. Although disagreement, but all respects.




 


 

 


A story: (updating March, 2019) - A person live in Toronto for 25 years, wear all kinds of shoes, in Toronto Middle Class 20 years ago, said:
- I started life at 18 years old in Toronto from no Money, $0.0, no Degree, Nothing. I have been working in Toronto more than 20 years, long enough Life Experience in Toronto, not many Canadian experienced like me. As a Canadian of different background, I graduated from a famous Canada University. I wear all kinds of shoes: Factory Worker, Poor, self-made Middle Class, Scientist, Professor. I started early my scientist career as a Professor, got paid 50$/ hr 20 years ago, when software developer 11$ / hr -> Got in Toronto Middle Class very early 20 years ago. I never work with some one who had same my background of Nationality. At first shocking me, no sympathy, no same interest, no same ideas, no bros & sis. But then I learn something, friendly competition, basic instinct, always pushing me better from working with the co-workers, managers, different backgrounds, scientists mostly from Europeans, Chinese, Indian, Korean...  From 25 years of working & living in Toronto, wearing all kinds of shoes, from poor to middle class, from Factory Worker to Scientist, Professor,
my advice: - In Toronto first multi-culture society, you have to live, work with all kinds of people, all kinds of backgrounds and nationality  -> For New Comers, in your own country you are something. But in Toronto, you are not something. Back home, you born rich family, never do low end jobs. In Toronto, you get started over again. You may have to do Factory Worker, Restaurant Server, Low End Jobs to make ends meet, or open Small Business like Restaurant, Nails Salon ... I know a Pizza Delivery from Korean, just immigrated to Toronto. He told me that back home he is Middle Class South Korean, rich. A lot of Indian immigrants work in factory, drive Taxi, Uber. A lot Vietnamese open nails Store. In Canada, Canadian is Canadian whatever backgrounds, because first, second Generation, they all also come from other country, make new life in Toronto. Just recently 2019, in a Federal By Election in Parliament, a candidate, who is East Asian Canadian Descent, said to another Candidate, who is South Asian Canadian, from another Party that "- He is Indian Origin". This sparked racism, favouritism in media. This Candidate told people don't vote for him, but vote for her, because he is not one of us. Right away, she is replaced, not allow to run. Because people said she was exclusive a Canadian based on their background, from a competition, a job, an opportunity. But in 99% Homogenous Society, you feel not the same. NOTE: In Canada, East Asian and South Asian make up 70% of all Ethnic Groups. East Asia 40%, South Asia 30%.

For Businesses:- If you want employees more competition, more innovative, more ideas not same ideas, business growth like Toronto, then:
1) Diversified your work force 2) Recruit more Global Talents.
3) Avoid same Group of people same Background, same Ethnic, same Like It or Not.
For example, Why a lot of Indian background working in IT? -> Should inclusive more other Ethnics, other Groups. A Indian descent Developer said that he got job, because he has a lot of connection in his community working IT department.
 

 You don't see anything when you wear only one shoe. You see the world from your small well, or thru window.
Buddha left his kingdom to see the world. He started life, worn all kinds of shoes, lived with all kinds of common people. Then he realized that life is full of hardship, suffering, difficulty, no peace. Baby when just born starts crying not smiling. The only happiness is to escape life, in temple where you find peace, where there is no Home, no Money, no Desire, no Temptation, no Material Life, no Human's Evil. As educated man, he learned something from his life experience that other common people can't understand. -> Then Buddhism was born. The main Philosophy of Buddhism is that:-
Life is a Circle of Birth -> Then Death -> Then Rebirth (After Life. Life not end everything with Death). Your life today is the result of what you have done in the past, your past life. What you do today will be the result of your next re-birth, next life. If today you do bad things your next re-birth will be hardship, bad, suffering. Or you go to hell, never Re-Birth. For example, today you are Millionaire, Billionaire, Boss, high Position in society. When you died, you died like everyone, common people. You can't bring all Money, Power into grave. But you carry your sin into grave, for next life, next hundreds of years. Unless your next life will do good things. Not easy forgive. If you do bad things, you will re-birth, your next life will live in suffering, a slave for others, not Rich, not Millionaire, not high Position, not Boss. ->  Rich, high position people do charity because they believe in rebirth, return, in "Do Good Things, Good Things will Go around, Come around". Scientist call this the Law of Return, proven. Buddhism is very popular in Asia countries like Thailand, Japan, Vietnam, South Korean, China, Singapore. Steve Job followed Buddhism. In modern age, Buddhism doesn't mean you should not work hard, not climb mountain, not want rich, not want high social class, no need high position, no need Home, no need Money, no Dream. But be self satisfy, be poor, very wrong. -> If so, then Japanese will not Japan today. Other modern Buddhism believe that Generations Poor, because your previous Generation didn't not do Good things. Your Life today is hardship, poor, bottom, suffering, because your previous Life you have done Not enough Good Things. Thus, you must work harder become Rich -> So that your next Generation is happy, born rich. Thus Rich, Prosperity keeps on Generation, because you or previous Generation had done a lot Good Things come around, go around. That's is influenced in Asian Society. -> Buddhism encourage people work hard, be Rich, be Prosperity. Do Good Things. Which will result in next Generation. -> That's why most people come to temple, pray for just that. Today Digital Industrial 4.0, the Monks in temple are doing business, generate money for survival. The main Philosophy of Buddhism Teaching: Do Good Things. Good Things Come around, Go around, to hundreds of years, next Life. And in opposite Do Bad Things. Because Death doesn't mean end every thing. But Death is a beginning of next Life.

Today, as Scientist, Professor, Middle Class Toronto for 20 years climb mountain, if I can make it in Toronto from Nothing, no Privileges -> Then so do you. I believe in the Law of Return = Do Good Things. Good Things come around, go around. Like in your own country, millions people from towns, provinces move to live in big City for a dream. Not easy life in big City. Hard life in big City. Easy said than done.
-> In any country, regardless your backgrounds, your social classes, rich, poor, you work hard, climb mountain, contribute to society, good citizen. Starting from nothing, no money, no privilege, you become Scientist, Engineer, whatever, become Millionaire. Whatever country they will welcome citizens like you
 


Update: February, 2019

- As usual, we report Toronto Home Sales & Home Price Report  for last month January, 2019. A beginning new year 2019.

Both Detached, Semi-Detached Home Ave still in million dollars Home. People are looking for affordable property, cheaper than Detached. For Home, they look for Semi Detached Home.  



*** Important News ***
1) Toronto Home Price in 2019 could return near its peak 2017. Very important. In Toronto Housing Price will increase to around
$820,000 near its peak 2017 = 822.587$.

2) Stress Test makes Home Buyers, specially
Millennial, Low income harder qualify. Realtors Association, Home Buyers say: "should re-think Stress Test" (mortgage rule) according to Globe and Mail, Financial Post ...

3) Toronto is experiencing very heavy winter storm, snow haven't seen in many decades in December, January, February month. Thus have huge impact in Buy/ Sell homes. Roads, streets have full of snow at least 15 cm, ice slippery ...
This is a good time Buy Home when people go away, not hot like Spring.

A Scientist and Professor said:
- Stress Test is a tool from the Bank to make sure Home Buyer can afford Home, pay mortgage when interest up. Stress Test drives Home Sales low because harder Buy Home from Demand Side perspective. -> Home Price under control, will not jump too much. However, from Supply side perspective -> Home Supply very tight, less Home Builder, less people sell their Home -> Home Price still and will be higher, but not so high, so hot like before. In 2017, Home Price jumped 33% driven by both Demand & Supply. This is too much. In 2019, Home Price is driven by Supply Side only. Home Sales still low Demand, less Buyers satisfy by Stress Test. But Home Price instead 33% jump, Home Price will jump around 4% -> 7%. Given ave Home Price $800,000, this translates returns each year Ave = $50,000. -> Thus in next 5 years, Home could return $250,000. As you see, in last 5 years from 2013 -> 2018, Home return $310,000.  => Thus, today you spend 160,000$ Buy Home. Ave Home in Toronto = $800,000 -> In next 5 years, you not only Get back all money, but also see a return profit = $100,000. If you are afraid, sit & wait Home price Down -> You will loss chance Buy Home. Now is Good Time when Interest Rate still low and not rising. Don't sit & wait & sorry. -> Now we understand, not just Demand pushing Home Price higher, but also tight Supply also pushing Home Price higher in moderate way.

Data Intelligence tells us that Consumer Spending in Trillions of dollars, is the main driver, creates of 65% GDP and Economy, create 2/3 jobs, more than Government Spending + Business Spending & Investment + Net ( Export - Import) combined. Even the big Energy Sector Oils & Gas Canada contributes around 165 Billions dollars, under 10% of GDP. The Middle Class is the main driven force, main Actor of Consumer Spending. Home Value has added multi trillions of dollars more to Middle Class (= Across Canada, Millions of Home x Hundreds of Thousands dollars add on value to each Home.). This multi-trillions dollars Home Wealth spreads thru the Economy, hundreds times more than Tax Cut, and more, contributes to all kinds of Taxes, Property Tax, Income Tax, Sales Tax, Home Tax, other Taxes, creates jobs, spreads thru Community, thru next Generation. Home Value creates millionaire approximately 5% population, only 2nd after US = 7.1% population, in Japan = 2.7%. Just 5 years ago in 2013, Millionaire population in Canada around 3%. After 5 years in 2018, Millionaire population increases to 5%.

Buy Home less than 12 years, after 2016 still Bank's Home, because ownership less than 50% -> Buy Home doesn't mean Own Home, different with Own Home.
- Every one with small deposit can Buy Home easily. Buy Home only just get started at the bottom mountain. All is about Home Ownership.
How long Buy Home?
- Own Home take at least 20 years, work hard, climb to Top mountain very difficult.
-> In US & Canada (before Jan, 2018) you can Buy Home 10% Deposit. Ave Home $800,000, can Buy Home $80,000 Deposit. Take a long time on Top. Pay alot Interest, very high mortgage payment / mo, high debt, very risky -> Better not Buy Home with small Deposit, at least 20%.
 


Update: Jan, 2019 - As usual, Toronto Home Sales & Home Price Report already out in Jan 4, 2019 for last month Dec, 2018.

- Home Sales Down 16% in 10 years low since 2008
. Fewer Houses listed. Less people sell their Home.
Home Sales usually Down in snow winter months because less people Buy Home, Move in, See Home in winter snow.

- The Toronto and Greater Areas around Toronto, Average Home Price (include all properties — detached, semi-detached, townhouse and condominiums) for month Dec 2018 — fell 4.3% to $787,300. Price growth was strongest for less expensive home types as many homebuyers sought more affordable home ownership options. Semi-Detached up +4%. Detached-Home fell -8%. The Average Home of Semi-Detached, Detached Home in Toronto for a whole years 2018 annually is both above 1 million dollars. Detached-Home 2018 fell -8% in month Dec.
NOTE: You watch Stock ups/down every minute. But
Home Data is different. You watch Home Data monthly, only 12 times / years, ups/ downs but the most significant Home Data is yearly Home Data for a whole year.

- Important News:

1) The reason Home Sales Down because:
A)
Worry Higher Interest slowly going up. Thus higher Borrowing Cost to buy home. Few days ago, BoC keeps same Interest Rate at 1.75% for a while. See Good News below at 6).
B)
Stress Test by the Banks that lend Mortgage Loan.
C) Winter months season, cold, snow. No body wants to Open House, Move in/out homes, See Homes in winter, cold, snow. Buy a Home takes weeks, drive around see homes.

About Stress Test: - Started in Jan, 2018, Stress Test increases 2% higher current Interest, around 20% of higher requirement for higher Income and loan to borrow. For example: If your Salary 50K, you may need 20% higher 50K Salary = 60K. Or before you qualify for 1 million dollars Loan, now with Stress Test, you only qualify for $800,000 Loan. The Goal of Stress Test: It makes sure you can afford to pay Home Mortgage & Bills, when Interest goes Up. But others complain that Low Income people hardly Buy Home like before. Stress Test also makes it harder for people Buy Home as Speculators, who Buy Home with Small Deposit longer Own Home & Buy & Sell make profit, not Buy A Home to Live. For Home Speculators, who are lucky Buy Home before Jan, 2018, a lot of profit. Now Game is over for new Home Speculators stated in Jan, 2018.
Stress Test
= No Easy Buy Home like before.
Only affect people Buy Home after Jan, 2018. People Buy Home before 2018, no affect by Stress Test. So Stress Test make sure
when Home Price Up, people  make profit. Everything is OK. But when Price goes down OR when Interest goes Up -> People Speculators low small Deposit, and People who used to be less qualify for mortgage, will be the first vulnerable on the frontier to abandon their Home -> Thus cause Home Bubble, could crash Home Market like 2008 Financial Crisis. However, Stress Test reduce a lot Home Buyers -> Drive less Demand. Home Sales down. But since very tight in Home Supply -> Home Price is steady, or a small decrease, or moderate increase. Don't expect a big drop in Home Price because of Stress Test. The Bank is Investor, share Home Ownership with you. They need to protect their Losses as well.

 
 

2) The Average Home Price of Semi-detach & Detached Home in Toronto for a whole Calendar Year 2018, Sum & Ave all monthly ups/ downs, both over 1 millions. The $787,300 is the Ave for all Types of Property.

- Average Home Price for a whole Year 2018, annually in Toronto=
$835,422, in 2017 Ave Price = $ 834,205. - In GTA Ave Price 2018 = $757,086, in 2017 Ave = $815,386.
- Average Home Price in 2016 annually =
$729,000. - Ave Home Price in 2015 = $622,000. - Ave Home Price in 2014 = $567,000.
Aver Home Price in 2013 = $523,000.
- Although there is monthly ups/ downs, not important, because Home not Stock watch every day. But over all, Ave Home Price in Toronto seems increase $80,000 year after year from 2015 to 2018. Thus if you Buy Home in Toronto from 2013 -> 2018, you are guaranteed No lose year after year. In 5 years, your return profit = $312,500.

3) Like Stock, Home Price always ups, downs every month. During winter months, cold, snow, less people line up Buy Home, less hot than Spring -> Summer months. Thus Home Sales, Home Price a little bit down is common. =>
Take advantage winter to Buy Home when Home is slow both Home Sales and Home Price.


4) New listings receded noticeably in 2018. In many neighbourhoods, despite fewer sales, some buyers still struggled to find a home meeting their needs.
Less people sell their Homes -> Very tight in Supply. Home Buyers have hard time to find home, while Rent increase. Which helps Home Price steady even Home Sales down.

5)
Rent Affordable in 2019 with 11% increase. - Rent Affordable affects the average marginalized people most. While House Affordable affects the middle income, who can afford Buy Home in Toronto, pass Stress Test, want Home Price goes down. -> In Toronto Rent will increase 11% significantly in 2019 by Supply / Demand. Which means more people less Qualify for Home, they have no choice but RENT. -> Push Rent higher. -> Thus more people will Buy Home because no reason to RENT when RENT seems as high as Home. -> Push Home Price higher.

6) No raising Interest, stay at same 1.75% may be for a while. - On Jan 9, 2019, BoC (Bank of Canada) announced not raising Interest Rate for a while, because Global Economy uncertainty. Canada Economy slower pace than expected in 2019. GDP projected only 1.7% instead of 2.1%.
Next BoC announces in March, 2019. Right now Interest Rate still low at 1.75% compared to in 90s 3x time higher. Good time to Buy Home.
NOTE
: Canada Interest Rate depends on factors like: 1) Oil Market & Oil Price 2) Global Trade. Economy 3) Housing Market.
=> During high interest rate 1990 -> 1999, 3, 4 x times higher compared now 1.75%, Toronto Home Price did not go down, but ups/ downs small %, +/- 5%, or flat. Which means historically, even Interest Rate goes up to 5%, Home Price will not drop, but Up/ Down small %, less than 5%, or Flat.

Forecast 2019: Canada Economy will grow at slower pace than 2018. Could be recession in late 2019 into 2020, because the Cycle of Booming Economy  from 10 years -> 12 years may come to end -> Stock Market big correction. -> After 5 raises from mid-2017 to end of 2018, Interest Rate will not higher, remain flat: 1.75% for a while, until end of 2019. -> Thus, will not affect Home Price a lot. -> Thus good time Buy Home. Don't wait, expect Home Price lower.
Historically, Data said
: High Interest Rate didn't make Home Price down significantly, but made Home Price Ups/ Downs small %, or Flat.
Usually, Interest Rate will not rise if the Economy slow in order to stimulus Economy, and Consumer Spending.

Consumer Spending: In trillions of dollars -> Which contributes
65% of GDP (Not Export then minus -Import, not Government Spending, not Business Spending & Investment). Because millions of people every day ** spend money **,  go shopping, pay mortgage, pay bills, eat at restaurants, buy Products & Services from small businesses ... -> Which helps create jobs, specially from small businesses create most jobs.
Since 2/3 of Economy, 2/3 of Job Creation, 2/3 of GDP created by Consumer Spending in trillions of dollars, more than Government Spending, Business Spending combined. The Middle Class is the leading force, main Actor in Consumer Spending.

Why Not Good Ideas Buy Multi Homes.

NOTE: On Average, Canada receives 300,000 Immigrants ever year. In 2018, 177,500 are Rich, Economic Immigrants of 300,000, or 60% are Rich, Economic Immigrants every year. This number continues increasing to 200,000 Rich, Economic Immigrants in 2020. There are around 100,000 immigrants or 33% - 40% come to live in Toronto every year. Canada has lowest population 36.9 millions in G7 Industrialized countries, like UK 66 millions, Japan 127 millions, German 82.2 millions, US 327 millions, France 65 millions... Thus ave immigrants 300,000 / year still not much, will take 10 years to increase Canada Population to 40 millions, still very low. => Thus less Consumer Spending, since Consumer Spending contributed 65% GDP of most Industrialized Countries -> Less Products & Services produced, more Seniors retired. As a result, less Comparative.

Ave Home Price 5 biggest Cities Canada in Dec, 2018: - Montreal, 2rd biggest City Canada after Toronto & GTA, 1.75 millions population, Ave Home Price = $350,000, Vancouver, 603,000 population, ave Home Price = $1,046,000, Town home = $837,600, Condos = $687,000
( Recently Price drop, reduce gap between Toronto & Vancouver. ), Calgary, 1.26 millions population, Oil Producers = $422,000, Ottawa, 884,000 population, Capital = $413,500, Kitchener- Waterloo, 234,000 population, Hi-tech, Start-up, Head Office of Black Berry, Nortel, Ave Home = $429,000.
NOTE: Some people said Smart Phone first came from, invented by Research In Motion (RIM) in Kitchener-Waterloo. Now is Black Berry. Just only 10 years ago, 2008, RIM smart phone Black Berry had 90% of market, millions of customers, valued more than 100 Billions in 2008 before Financial Crisis crash. First Black Berry device came out in 1999. First Black Berry smartphone came out in 2002. First iPhone came out June, 29, 2007. First Samsung smartphone came out June, 2010. Just only 10 years ago, Black Berry is the #1 Smart Phone Maker. No iPhone, no Samsung Smart Phone. Today, BlackBerry specialized in making Enterprise Software.

Toronto & GTA biggest City in Canada, and 2nd after New York City. Like any countries in the world, the Rich Upper Class, the Middle Class live in big City. => Toronto, GTA is where the most rich Upper Class, the House Holds Millionaires, the Middle Class of Canada are living. Toronto and Vancouver has Ave Home Price million dollars. But Toronto including GTA = Bigger 15 times x Vancouver.
The Difference between Toronto and Vancouver. Vancouver, good Tourism, TV, Film Productions,
603,000 population. But Toronto, biggest city of Canada, is the Financial Hub of Canada, Banks, S&P, TSX Stock Exchange, Financial Center, Manufactory Hub of Canada, produce 65% of all Goods of whole Canada, large Population 9.5 millions.

Where you live Make Big Difference. Which means choose a right place to Live, like in big City, will add on 1/2 millions dollars or more. Just follow simple life. No complicated Investment Portfolio.
Case Study,
John choose to live in Toronto, and Tran choose to live in Montreal. Both Started life $0.0, Work very hard. Do same Job. Buy a Home, a Car. Simple Life Style. No other Investment.
After 20 years, John lives in Toronto add on his Net worth = $1.030,000, more than 1/2 millions dollars richer than Tran in Montreal, her Net worth = $350,000.
-> Looking at Data, we see even the return is more than 1 millions dollars because Choose A Right Place to Live. In Toronto, 20 years ago, Semi-Detached Home around $260,000, Detached Homes in Toronto around $310,000. Today Semi-Detached 1.1 millions -> 1.2 millions dollars, Detached Home 1.3 millions -> 1.35 millions dollars. While 20 years ago, in Montréal Ave Home = $200,000, today $350,000. All is about Data. In this Case Study, we use data of a male and female for Gender Equality.

=> What we learn is that John
& Tran Making Decision for A Place to Live. Both are same working very hard 20 years, but Return On Investment different 1/2 millions dollars. Tran
said:- Move out of Toronto, noisy. Don't Like It. -> Tran is Making Decision based on Irrational Emotion. John based on Choices. As a result, Game Payoffs big difference = 1/2 millions. A big loss Time & Money for Tran. Time = 20 years working hard. Money = 1/2 millions dollars loss, because Tran does not Choose Right Place. She could maybe deserve: 1/2 millions -> Even 1 millions dollars.
U
sing Data, Scientist proves that Making Decision for a Place to Live
is very important. John chose to Live in Toronto -> Work hard, save money -> Buy a Home to Live. John said: - Live simple life. Save money for a Home. No Gamble, no Smoke, no Drink, no expensive Car, no expensive Travel (most spending). People miss opportunity to Have a Home, because their spending. For Investor, buy a cheap Property at a Place that is no good return Time & Money, is not worth waiting for.


- Is it true that 65K Buy Home 20 years ago, today has return more than 1 millions?
- Why financial advisors said differently?
-> Yes. See Data. But unlike Stock buy, then sit & wait. Buy Home you must work hard to pay mortgage, property tax, and other Home Expensive for 25 years. Buy Home is first step challenge. The first 10 years after Buy Home, called "Testing Period",  is very important.
->Should I wait for Home down more? - No body can time the Market of Stock or Home. Bill Gates, Warren Buffett said so. Right now, Toronto Home Average still at very low since its peak in 2017. 20 years ago when Interest above 6.5%, a lot people waited for it dropped to buy home. They missed Home Ownership, still waiting. Buy Home, Live, and Wait. Not Wait, Rent, and Buy Home.

Why Home Price goes Up in long term? List few main factors.
1) Income, GDP / Capital, Basic Minimum Wage = Need money can afford Home. Why Minimum Wage? Because it allows a worker to pay higher Rent -> Home Price up. Minimum wage in Canada, Toronto $14.0 / hr, in 2017 = $11.50

2) Immigration, Population grow. Supply / Demand. A Demand for Place to Live, Demand for Rent pushing higher Home price. Canada receives 300,000 immigrants each year. 60% are Economic Immigrants. 40% for Family Unification, Refugee, Humanitarian ..

3) By Inflation Adjusting. Price goes up. - Today, by Inflation adjusting 2.5x times 20 years ago. Today mini wage 20 years ago 6.5$ -> 14$ / hr, big Mac 3.0$ -> $7.0, 1 bed-room: 650$ -> 1350$. => That's why Home Price goes up naturally just By Inflation Adjusting. Can't stop Inflation only minimize it.

Look at Data of Ave Home Price Toronto in past 20 years.
- In 1998, ave Home Price =
$216,815 -> In 2008, ave Home Price = $380,000 = 1.75 x times increase 1998 -> 2008. Ave Home Price in 2018 = $750,000 in 10 years 2008 -> 2018 up = 1.97 x times => Thus Ave Home Price in Toronto increase = 1.75x in 10 years -> Forecast: 2018 to next 10 years = $750,000 x 1.75 x =  Ave Home Price in Toronto = 1.3 millions dollars. Use lower end Data.
- In 20 years 1988 -> 2018, there are 2 x big recessions, 2 x big Stock Market crashed in 2000 .Dot Com bubble, and 2008 Financial Crisis. NOTE: From 1998 -> 2008, 2 big Stock Market crashed, 2 big recessions happened within in 10 years, but Ave Home Price still gains 1.7x times. If a lot people scare you recession, home will go down ... Look at Data in past 20 years. No affect Toronto Home Price still rising 20 years. Currently, Ave Home Price is low and affordable, down a lot since its peak 2017.
=> That's why Home Price goes up just By Inflation Adjusting.

How big is 65K 20 years ago? - Today, by Inflation adjusting 2.2x times. Today mini wage 6.5$ -> 14$ / hr or 26,800$ / year, Software Engineer, Engineer: 12$ -> 24$ / hr = 46,000$ / year, big Mac 3.0$ -> $ 7.0, 1 bed-room: 650$ -> 1350$, thus $65000 20 years ago, today = $145,000.

NOTE:  If you work for big corporation, it will gradually increase entry salary. Most immigrants first came to Canada, started life $0.0 will work in factory. There are PhD from other countries drive taxi. Today is improving, because more Skill Immigrants come Canada. For example, a lot Software Developers, IT Managers in senior high position, IT Professionals from India working in Canada.

-> Use Data, scientist show people they can't explain using mouth, tongue.
 

Why 70% millennial think it's to buy a home first priority and Plan ahead for Retirement ?
- Because young people are smart and Data Intelligence. They plan their future ahead Buy Home. They want Home, Have Something, maybe Become a Millionaire. Even you have job good salary, after pay Taxes like Income Tax, all kinds of Living Expensive, Rent, you don't have much left. Thus in next 20 years, you still have nothing. Home or some kind of Property helps your Net worth grow into Something.
HOW? - After graduated University, Started Life around 28 years old -> Take 10 - 12 years Saving for Home Deposit at least $100,000. Thus they 28 + 12 = 40 years old. -> Then Take 25 years pay off Home. -> Now they are on Top of Mountain. Although some talented millennial will be faster @ 50s on Top of the Mountain.
- Some young people said: - Enjoy life. Travel the world first. Later when in mid 30s, Plan for Something Buy Home. -> It is too late. You are 10 years behind.

I agreed with Kevin O'Leary that we should focus to pay off mortgage. But disagree with him is that he said: 1) Mortgage is the bad debt, don't get it. 2) You don't Save Money because Have Home and Have Mortgage. 3) And if have mortgage, pay off your mortgage as fast as you can.
I think differently,
1) Mortgage is the good debt. Use other's cheap money to make rich yourself. You will not have this opportunity cheap money again for many years. People in 90s waiting for more than 10 years for 1.75%. Get it soon as you can if afford.
2) Home is your Saving Money Peggy bank. When you start Paying Mortgage means you start Saving money for Something.
When having Home you Save money. You less Spend By Desire. All extra money put in Mortgage first. Thus less Travel, less Shopping, less Drinking, Smoking. Small things add on a lot money. For example, When Have Home & Mortgage, a Travel temptation -> But then must Pay for Mortgage first priority. More responsible. But, Live by Rent. Don't care. No Home's worry. Let's Go Travel by Desire.
3) And you can't pay off your mortgage as fast as you can. And should Not pay off mortgage ASAP. It takes 20 years unless you are rich. Also, Mortgage Loan is small Interest 4% -> 5% compared to Credit Card Rate 15% -> 21%. Or other Loan if you have to borrow in future, such as, Open Small Business.
4) Just think Mortgage is replace Rent.
No choice. You must choose one
. -> You choose Pay Rent lost money near 1/2 income for 50 years, for ever, your Children Next Generation. Always keep increasing. - OR - Choose Pay Mortgage for 20 years. ->
Free Rent. Own Home. Become Millionaire -> As you see, Home is your Saving Money and Have Something.

A scientist said: - I gained more Knowledge, Theory, Research from Teaching. I like to help students. They used my reference, as my Researcher, to get job. After that I left teaching. I was working as Computer Scientist, Software Developer to gain more hands-on experience. And I love to Design & Build software. -> But still on/off Teaching Part-Time. There is a college far from Toronto, I traveled back & forth 2 hour each trip using 2 different transfer Buses. Some classes, I get up early 6am still very dark in the morning in order to be in class room at 8am. I teach PT at a College in Toronto area.

- After graduated from a Canadian University
, if early started career as Computer Scientist. As a Canadian, a Middle Class in Toronto, I have been working around 25 years, started working early age 18 with $0.0 money, no Degree in Toronto. I like talking about Home because Home is something after working hard all your life. People lack of knowledge about Home. Even the best Financial Advisor, Business Processor, Bank Financial Annalist still think Buy Home is no good option. In Canada more than 50% own Home.

Recently, I got emails from many people thank me for advice when they bought their first home.
One first time Home Buyer said: - I wanted to buy first home but so scary when reading online News, TV. Then my friend sent me this Blog for Research before making the biggest decision of my life: Buy Home. It helps me know more about Home. I were so confident and bough my first Home.
A Toronto Middle Class Home Owner said: - We are working 9-5 very hard for Home. Home is very important for us: All or Nothing. I don't know much about Home. Reading online News, I am wanted to sell Home. But you use Data, no biases, help us not sell Home. Thank you very much.
But I also receive complaining email from a person. He said: - You speak for millionaire Middle Class Home Owners in Toronto. We are working people, want to Buy Home, wish Home Price goes down, but not. While you maintain Home Price OK, by inflation, not high.
I would like to reply this person
: -> I started life at 18, no degree, no money $0.0, alone, no parent support, very poor in Toronto at the very bottom. So I understand working class. I speak for myself and want to help people make biggest decision of their life Buy Home, including you and one first time Home Buyer mentioned above. Sorry you can't Buy Home. It is the Market, Supply/ Demand influenced Home Price. Inflation is also main factor contributed to high Home Price.. It is Stress Test makes challenging for working people Buy Home.

NOTE:
As Data & Computer Scientist, we use data, facts, reality. I read a lot Blogs, Articles, they write don't use Data. Thus bias, based on assumption. Most articles have negative view about Toronto Housing. Data is worth thousands words.

- If Deposit less than 20%, it would take longer and pay more interest
. For example, Buy Home in 1999, 20% Deposit, in 2019, Your Home Ownership 80% -> 90%. But 10% Deposit, Buy Home in 1999, today 2019 approximately 45% -> 55% Ownership. Because you pay for a lot Interest Payment. That's why, Today, started 2018, new Housing Policy required Deposit at least 20%. Housing Crisis in 2008 because people can Buy Home with small Deposit 5%. People abandon their Home when Home Price dropped.. The more Deposit at least 20%, the less monthly Mortgage Payment / mo (example: 10% = 3000$ / mo -> 20% = 1800$ / mo), the least Interest Payment, less likely abandon their Home, and faster Own Home. Before 2018, most people Buy Home, Deposit less than 20%. It is like borrow 20,000$ loan on Credit Card. You pay 250$ / mo, but 200$ for Interest Payment, only 50$ for Principal Loan =  $20,000 - $50 = $19,500. How long Buy Home & Keep Home + Deposit most important. Live in 1 million dollars Home but Ownership less than 50% is Bank's Home.
=> If you Buy Home before 2006, and Deposit at least 20% = Your Home Ownership more than 50% = You Own Home. Else still Bank's Home. Have Deposit and Buy Home is 1st Challenge. Keep Home for 20 years is another Challenge.
People lost Home because
: 1) Lost Job. Most common. 2) High Interest goes up.
 
 Why? - Because today, high Home Price, most people Buy Home are Middle Class Couple, need 2 x Middle Class Income Buy Home and Pay Mortgage. Thus if one lose Income, the other one hardly afford to pay mortgage. They use credit card.

Today high Toronto Home Price. Who are most Home Buyers today?
-> Middle Class Couple, each with $60,000 income, a combined $120,000 Income. But a combined 100K, each 50K still OK. Before need only 1 income.

See:
Salary needed to buy Home in 20 major US Cities. Click here.

- Buy A million dollars Home, Deposit 20% = $200,000, Loan = $800,000. Interest = %3.65 (2018) - Amortization = 25 years Own Home. Mortgage = 4285$ / mo
- Rent out 2nd Floor = $1500 / mo. => Mortgage Payment = 4285 - 1500 = $2785 / mo =>
First 60K Salary OK Pay for Mortgage + Property Tax + Utility. Even each 50k OK = 2950$ / mo after Income Tax. Thus, Home Affordable for Middle Class Couple.
 

- A middle class couple pay Mortgage, Bills, Property Tax. First 10 years will be the most challenging. (04/1/2019)
- The Responsibility, the Hardship, the Debt of Home Owners, always worry Lose their Home since the 1st day they climb the mountain. Have A Home to Live. No easy Home for them. A lot people started Life from 0.0$ -> Home Ownership.

Today high Home Price
, most Home Buyers are from Middle Class Couple, combined salary at least $120,000, or $60,000 each, can afford Home. 60K after Income Tax = 3500$ / mo, enough for mortgage payment, but not include Property Tax, Utility. - The other salary take cares of 2 x Cars, Car Insurance, Glossary, iPhone, Internet, Eat-out, Vacation ...

More 70% millennial think it's to buy
a home first priority -> Then to get married or have kids.

A new trend according to Bank of America: - Does it means the Millennial use Data Intelligence more than Emotional Intelligence in hi-tech modern time ? A new trend? - They want to Buy Home, Have Something, maybe Become a Millionaire ?

1) Today, the Millennial are Mature, Responsible, Smarter.

2) The Millennial want Get In Middle Class Home Ownership = mean Success.
- Which means Home is Something, more realistic.

3) Their Partner specially the female wants Home, expecting
Men Buy Home first.

- According to a 2018 report by the National Institute on Retirement Security.
1) Currently, about two-thirds 2/3 of millennial have nothing at all Saving.
2) Millennial who do have savings hold average balance of
$19,100.

Need more Saving. Such as, Cut Travel (most spending), expensive Car, Stay low Rent, no Smoking, Drinking.

Why Millennial choose Home first priority? Because:

1) Home is Peggy bank saving money else you spend by desire. Most important people don't understand. Mortgage is Good Debt like Education. Because either you choose pay Mortgage 20 years, Free Rent. Own Home. Become Millionaire. OR choose Pay Rent lost money near 1/2 income (always keep increasing) for 50 years, for ever and next generation.

2) Having Home will make you more responsible, mature, work harder. -> What ever people can say. But can afford Home = Mean a success.

3) Home protects your access, net worth from Inflation. Your access, Car, TV, Cloths, Cash in the bank, in the long term, will lost value because of Inflation. Home increase values in long term.

4) Home Values grow and increase in a long time. Not car. Because Home is a necessity, like food, rent. People can't live without a shelter either Home or Rent.

5) A Home to Live is the best Return. People spend more than 1/2 salary on Rent than anything.

6
) Your whatever Salary, even good salary of Professor, help you pay Living Expensive. Home helps your Net worth grow, and be Millionaire. A lot people just Have a Home -> Work hard 20 years -> Become Millionaire. => A lot Financial Advisors How to Become Millionaire - But Buy Home & Become Millionaire is the most realistic way and proven by Data.

7
) Home will ensure after many years working hard, climbing to Top Mountain, you Have Something. You are not mountain helper, who helps other climb mountain, work hard, carry heavy load, hardship. But to Top Mountain Have Nothing.

A Millennial said: - A new Trend of the Millennial is Buy Home first priority. What ever you do, make sure plan something. Plan as early as possible when still in millennial (22 - 37). 10 years runs very fast. Thank you for the best realistic advice.

Who is responsible Buy Home in Partnership?
A Millennial said: - My girl friend wants Home and I am responsible Buy Homey. Is it true?

The Man is responsible Buy Home
. Like diamond, Men always buy diamond, not other way around, an expectation. Even she gets her parent's money, or her own money. If the woman has her own money or has capacity to Buy Home, her expectation very high of her partner. While man doesn't care about high expectation of his partner. No woman Buy Home for man. But, Man Buy Home for Woman common.-> This is not about money, but about responsibility. Every one can blah blah big thing, cloths, car, restaurant... are small. But Home is big. Get in Middle Class Home Owner Toronto need $200,000.(not just Deposit + other Cost when Buy Home).

-> In Asian Culture, tradition, Parent will transfer wealth to their children. But, the problem is that the next Generation doesn't want to work hard, create more wealth, add-on more values -> Thus generation to generation not richer, wealth doesn't grow, doesn't add-on values -> Create expectation for Next Generation not working hard add on more Wealth. -> As a result, the previous Generation started from Nothing -> Creating Wealth -> Next Generation spend reduced Wealth, rather add-on more values to wealth keep on growing. This is a reminder that work hard add on more values.


Also depends on culture.
Eastern culture like Vietnam, China, Japan, Korean ... expect the Man Buy Home. Because according to their tradition Home is the root of family. Without root without family. The man brings the woman to his Home or his Parent's Home. The woman follows the man to his Home. In Asia country, Home is transferred from the previous Generation to next Generation. Parent, children, all lives in one Home, sharing life expensive.
 

-> Action not Words. 


The reality is: - Love, Horney, Emotional Intelligence happens only 2 -> 3 years. After that, Data Intelligence, Money for Home, Rent, Car, Living Expensive, Food, Children ... happens for the rest of your life. Never peace without money.

 

=> Is it good benefit Have 1 x Home and Pay off mortgage or Sell it, Split resources, Buy 3 x homes?
- We have written in early Blog. Better benefit just use all resources, money to pay off 1 x Home than split into Buy multi Homes. You have finished 90% on the road to mountain. Only climb 10% more then relax. Which means 1 Home 90% Home Ownership better than have 3 x Homes each 30% Home Ownership start climbing from bottom of mountain at 30% on the long road for another 20 years more. Waste Time & Money pay more Interest. Buy or Invest Multi-Homes good when Low Interest, easy Home Policy, Low Borrowing Cost. Time has changed. Have 3 x Homes when Interest begins goes up is no good.

For example, you bought a Home 20 years ago, few years pay off. You work hard 20 years, climbed 90% mountain, Home ownership 90%. Now your Home worth 1 millions. You sell your home. And buy 3 x million dollars Homes, each a millions dollars Home. Each deposit 30% = $300,000. Or can buy 5 x million dollars Homes, each a million dollars, each Deposit 20% = $200,000. Satisfy min require 20%.

You better Have 1 x Home to Live than Have 3 x Homes. And Pay off mortgage. Which is better than Buy 3 x Homes each million dollars, each only 30% Ownership. -> Because Buy 3 x Homes, you Waste 3x Time longer to own Home, and waste more 3x Money for Interest Payment. More triple 3x Debt, very high risk. Pay more Interest starts going up, Home Price up little 5% - 8% / year. Not hot up 30% like 2017. Time has changed. Home is not easy, free ride like before. You start climbing 70% mountain again. => You getting older, can't climb more.

In general,
Ownership 90% and finish pay off 1 x Home -> Become millionaire. Free Home. Free Rent. No more Pay for Interest only -> Enjoy Live. No worry Rent each month, Interest ups, Home goes down. Better than Have 3 x Home, but only 20%, 30% Ownership. It's Bank's Home, 3 x Debt. If Interest goes up trend, will be big problem, 3 x Property Tax, high risk, work hard longer. Not millionaire, because Home Ownership million dollars Home less than 50% = Bank's Home. Always worry Rent each month, Debt, Interest ups, Home goes down, Market ups/ downs. The longer on the road, less % ownership, the longer you pay more for Interest, not for Home. Not sure when you can own 100% Home Ownership. Could never own Home. A Home to Live is the best Return.

A scientist said
: "- Analyze Data, we see that Keep 1 x Home, safe, less debt, less risky, peace of mind, relax, enjoy live, and return more profit $$$ than Split into 3 x Home. A lot people think that.. Live in million dollars Home -> Then they own million dollars Home, and become millionaire. It is not. It depends on Home Ownership %. Need own a Home at least more than 50% or at least 10 years, Buy Home after 2008 is still Bank's Home. A 20 years Middle Class can buy at least 3 x millions dollars Home. Does it mean he/she 3 x Millionaires? "

=>
That's why Computer Scientist used Data, Make Sense things different with people don't use Data, simple minded.

- Climb to the Top of Mountain for Something. A lot of risks, take at least 20 years reach 90% to Top. Relax. Enjoy Life. Become Millionaire.
- If you bought a Home 12 years ago in 2006 with Deposit around 10%, probably, you climb at 45% -> 48% of the long road, near half. -> But Deposit at least 20% you at more than 1/2 of the road and accelerating faster to Top.
- Just bought Home 5 years ago. Congratulation. -> You are at the beginning on the road to the Top Mountain. A lot of risks, can lost Home any time, back to the bottom. -> Buy Home less than 12 years is Bank's Home, because ownership less than 50%
-> Buy Home doesn't mean Own Home. Buy Home very different with Own Home.
- Every one with small deposit can Buy Home easily. Buy Home only just get started at the bottom mountain.
- But Own Home take at least 20 years climb on Top mountain very difficult.
-> In US & in Canada (before Jan, 2018), you can Buy Home with 5% Deposit. Thus Ave Home $800,000, you can Buy Home $40,000. Take a long time on Top. Pay alot Interest.
- Now 3x Homes back start at 20% bottom another 25 years again. => You still climb 80% the long road with Home's Renters. Not one, both responsible, climb to Top Mountain.
-
The losers always Renters, like Mountain Helpers, work hard, heavy load, hard life. Climb 20 years, help others on Top. But Get Nothing.
- Rent keeps increasing every year
. In 2019, Toronto Rent increased 11%, because people hardly satisfy conditions Buy Home. In 90s, Rent 1-bed room around $600. Today Rent increased around 1700$ for 1-bed room.
 

Most Financial Experts, like Suze Orman, David Batch, Kevin O'Leary, advise: "- Pay off your mortgage as soon as possible". In this case, rather pay off your mortgage soon, borrow more debt buy multi homes. Not good ideas. READ: https://www.msn.com/en-ca/money/topstories/pay-off-your-mortgage-asap-experts-say%E2%80%94heres-why/ar-BBRcEBZ?li=AAggNb9&ocid=mailsignout. But some other their advices are not right. Buy Home made a different between Something and Nothing.

I agreed with Kevin O'Leary
that we should focus to pay off mortgage. But disagree with him is that he said Mortgage is the bad debt, don't get it. And if have mortgage, pay off your mortgage as fast as you can. To me, Mortgage is the good debt and your Saving Money Peggy bank. And you can't pay off your mortgage as fast as you can. It takes 20 years. Just think Mortgage is your Rent. No choice. You must choose one. -> You choose Pay Rent near 1/2 income lost money for ever, 50 years, your Children Next Generation. OR Choose Pay Mortgage for 20 years. Rent Free -> Use your brain.
His advice: https://www.msn.com/en-ca/money/real-estate/kevin-o%E2%80%99leary-this-is-the-no-1-piece-of-advice-about-your-mortgage/vi-BBSn8Pt?ocid=spartanntp
See My Rule 1) Why Millennium choose Buy Home is first priority:
1) Home is piggy bank saving money else you spend by desire. Most important people don't understand. Mortgage is Good Debt. Because either you choose pay Mortgage or Pay Rent.

This 3.0 millions dollars Home 4-level-storey tall but small in Toronto, Dec 27, 2018: https://www.msn.com/en-ca/money/homeandproperty/narrow-4-storey-dollar3m-riverdale-house-stalls-on-market/ar-BBRvGeJ?ocid=mailsignout NOTE: In Toronto don't build this kind of multi-level storey Home, small area but tall, like lack of land. Cost a lot Heating Bill in winter. Not efficient
- This kind of 
high raised multi-level 7 storey Home 10 Rooms common in Far East City. Click here. Very common in Far East because a multi storey Home has a whole big family including Parent, children, children's family in 1 Home. Unlike industrialized country when children marry choose move out of home.


Game Theory - All about Making Choices and Decisions

A Scientist Professor said: - In the Movie " Crazy Rich Asians " - Professor Chu, plays Game Theory with Students to demonstrate to Game Theory in class that, involving both Psychology, Human Emotion and Choice. " The key is playing to Win, instead of trying not to Lose ". - Most people Play not to lose. The student played game, " Hate to lose what are values to him ", abandoned " rational thoughts " thus make poor decisions. Prof. Chu is playing a Game either: " Gain or Loss " - One Gain in the Expensive of the Other's Loss. Can't both Gain nor both Loss. Thus what ever values the Opponent Lost (- $10), the other Player Gain those values (+ $10).
In this Game,
Prof. Chu is playing a Strategy in called " Dominating Strategy " that forced the opponent Student played " Play not to lose = Dominated Strategy "

The
Scientist Professor continues: - What Strategy should the Student play? - Student should play Optimum Strategy against Prof's Dominating Strategy to Maximize the Gains -> The Student knows could Loss. So the Student Play this Strategy = Minimize the Maximize Losses = Remove the Maximum Losses. => Game reduced to The Equilibrium of Losses & Gains = The Game's Equilibrium, called: Optimum Strategy. are there other Strategies than Optimum Strategy? - Yes a few - Can't explain here.
 
Domination Game. Playing to Win (Dominant Strategy) and Playing not to Lose (Dominated Strategy).
-> 1) Play B ( Row - the dominant, Professor Chu ) choose Play Dominating Strategy, Gain = 3 = the Game Pay Off at Row 2, Col II.
-> 2) Player A (Column - the dominated - the Student) find that Col IV where he gets the most losses. The Play A removed the column IV, called the Dominated Column, the big Losses, in order Minimize the maximize Losses. -> The Game reduced to smaller Game Matrix 3 x 3. = [ 3  1  2 ] [ 2  3  3 ] [5  2  4 ]
-> 3) Then Player B Play Maximize Gains -> Find the Row1 has least profit -> Then eliminated Row 1 [x] . Now = Game 2 x 3 = [ 2  3  3 ] [5  2  4 ]
-> 4) Then Player A Play Minimize Losses -> Find column III = [3 4 ] has most losses -> Then eliminated Column III. Now = Game 2 x 2 =   [ 2  3   ] [5  2   ] = Game Equilibrium. => This Domination Strategy Game, Player A plays Strategy = Optimum Strategy..

The Payoffs Formula = A strategy ai  €  Ai is strictly dominated by ái  Ai   if  ui ( ai , a - i ) < ui ( á, a - i )
a - i   A - i  ( = no matter what the other Players do )

NOTE: Given ui = the Payoff.  Ai = Some Players => Then, the Payoffs Formula = The Payoff of strictly Dominated Strategy ( ai ) is always less than ( < ) the Payoff of Dominant Strategy ( ái )  No matter what the other Players do. Which means that in Domination Game, if you Play Dominant Strategy, the Payoff Games more for you the Dominant Player than the Player play Dominated Strategy. No matter What the other Players do. => Scientist can predict the outcome (the Payoff) of the Game.
Either you Play as Professor or Play as Student, both have a lot of things to learn from. Good for both.

Game 1:- Domination Strategy Game 3 x 4 Choices.
Play B Dominant Play
Dominating Strategy. vs. Play A Dominated Play: Optimum Strategy

Conclusion: In Domination Strategy Game: - Professor Chu Plays Dominating Strategy -> Maximize the Gains. Student best Strategy ( or is forced ) Playing: Optimum Strategy. => The Game Iteration is reduced the Least Losses available on the Matrix Table. => In photo Game 1.

Is there other Strategy for the Domination Game? - Yes. It is called: The MinMax Strategy.

- B Play, Dominating : Maximize [ Minimum Gains ] -> [4, 2, 5] = 5

- A Play, Dominated, plays: Minimize [ Maximum Loss ]-> [9, 5, 6 ] = 5

=> The Equilibrium of Game = 5 .

=> As we see in Domination Game Strategy, the Dominating Player B is forcing the Dominated Player A no other Choice, or only Choice but play: Minimize the Maximum Loss, because A doesn't have " Dominant Strategy ". So Player A plays "Dominated Strategy" eliminate "Dominated Losses" in order to Minimize big Losses.

->" Dominant Strategy "
is the Strategy of the Dominant Player (B) who Plays to Gain (or they think so) regardless whatever the Opponent Player A Plays. To Play "Dominant Strategy", the Play B must know how to Play Dominant Strategy. So the Dominated Player A must figure out "- What is the Dominant Strategy of Player B that they think will Gain, regardless whatever the Player A's Playing? ". -> Yes, there is a methodology.

-
 Dominant Equilibrium: When two Players playing Dominant Strategy, each one has its own Dominant Strategy, the result is Dominant Equilibrium, not always the best Payoffs for both. But not always both Players had Dominant Strategy, or want to Play Dominant Strategy - All depends on Players' money, resources, talents ... For example, in Poker Game, the one has the most money is considered the Dominant Player -> Has Dominant Strategy. Professor Chu has not much or same money, but has more talent.

-> Are there any other Strategy ? -> Yes - But can't explain here. Sorry. -> A 64 K question.

Game Theory is a field of Computer Science, like Web Services, Framework, Data Science, AI ... Recently, it becomes a hot topic of Research by a lot Professors Teaching Computer Science and Research Computer Scientist.
It helps Computer Scientist
find solutions, different with Social Science. Game Theory also helps Computer Scientist Design software by finding " How People's rational & irrational Behaviours when using, reacting, interacting with software, Screen Interface, GUI, UI/ UX, Logics and Algorithms "
- Most Software Developers design software for them not for common people. Computer Languages used to design Game Theory is OOP (Object Oriented Programming) Java, C++.

What Game Theory for?

A Scientist and Professor said:
- Game Theory is NOT Play Chess Game, Toy Game. It used Complex Algorithm to solve Problems. - Not easy to Play kind of Game Theory. Unlike Chess Game, Toy Game anyone can Play. -> You need smart people in Table make big difference. Play Game Theory, Scientist can predict, forecast the Payoffs of the Game, such as, Gains, Losses, Equilibrium, and understand Human Emotion's Behaviour rational and irrational even smart people in Making Decisions. Then applied in Economics, Policy, Stock Market, International Conflict, Competition, Consumerism, Pricing, Problems Solving ... Which is very important.

Game Theory proves that most people Play Gains for their best Interest (both Play B, Play A), thus not always good Making Decision. Hard Compromise. Conflict, war happens.

What Game Theory for? continue

- Knowing Game Theory will help your company, your Team Design Dominant Strategy that will put the other Players in a situation that they have no choice but Play according to your Strategy for your advantage. Make a big difference.

For example,
- Professor Chu has knowledge of Game Theory then applied in Playing to Win, Dominating Strategy. Student has no choice but Play Not to Lose.
For example, in Game 4, Pricing Competition. Player B knows his Dominant Strategy is Low Price - What ever Player A Play. Player B knows Player A has No Dominant Strategy, and A will have no Choice but Play Low Price. Even if A Play Low Price, B still Dominant because B has Lower Low Price, i.e. B's Labour Cost lower than A. => Thus Player B will Play Low Price for its best Payoff what ever Player A Play Low Price or High Price.
 


I used to go to temple. Give some.

Helen Keller :" - Life is either a daring Adventure or Nothing at all."

A Story. A person said: "- I started life alone at young 18 years old, nothing, $0.0 no Money, no Degree in big City Toronto. I worked all kinds of survival jobs. Very tough. Try yourself. -> Then become College Professor and Scientist. -> Get in Middle Class 20 years ago. I have been working around 25 years at very young. As a Canadian, I have contributed alot in Taxes. Without work, hardly survival in Middle Class early days in Toronto. See a lot Data. I have experience Life Ups, Downs, Gains & Losses unpredictable, sometimes from Mother's Nature. It likes: - Play Game Theory of a Person's Life of Gains & Losses that you Making Decisions & Choices. I used to go to temple often. I Give some. Not wish for Maximize Gains. But Minimize less Losses. I feel good. Reduce Greed & Ego. While most people wishing for more Gains, but hardly see Gains. Because they don't know Game Theory. -> It is Greed & Fear that people suffer mind & body, mentally & physically.

I am young. Still have a lot of time. Have fun.
According to statistics,
people make alot of money, in Middle Class when they are young, ambitious, energy, on demand from 28 -> 38 years old. So called " The Young the Restless". Time runs fast. Don't waste time to have fun when young. Must Plan early.

Do you have any achievement in your life?
I have a lot Ups, Downs in life. This Story about a person, no Privileges, started life alone from 0, zero, no Money, no Degree, in big City -> And pull itself from survival jobs to become College Professor and Scientist, in Toronto Middle Class 20 years ago. Still work hard make ends meet. What ever Ups, Downs, Gains, Losses, no Problems -> It's Game of Life.

Your advice? -Try your best. Whatever will be will be. There are people walk with you, but no one can walk for you.

 

 

Game 2: The Domination Game 3x 3 Matrix Table for MinMax Strategy. => The Equilibrium Game = 5 is the best Game Payoffs.

- Dominant Strategy

B / A Low Price High Price
Low Price ($250,$110) ($150, $160)
High Price ($170,$130) ($80,$80)

Game 3 - Pricing Competition:
At Low Price, B's Gain = $250, A Gain = $110. So on... However, from Table, we find that: - B has Dominant Strategy is Play Low Price. No guessing. We also find that:- A doesn't have Dominant Strategy.
 
Dominant Strategy: "- What ever Play A plays Low Price or High Price, Player B always Play Low Price better Payoffs for them. So B has Dominant Strategy. A No. "

NOTE: Dominant Strategy is applied in different  Contexts, different Games. Such as, Pricing Competition, Policy, Negotiation, Conflict, Stock Market, Economics, Social Science, Human Behaviour, Making Decision..

For example, even A Play Low Price,
B still Dominant because B has Lower Low Price, i.e. B's Labour Cost, Product Cost lower than A. -> A has no Dominant Strategy either Play High Price or Low Price.
For example, Before, Made in China not popular, no body likes, not favour. Today, Made in China has popular the World because of Low Price. Trade Balance always in favour to China in many countries. A Dominant Strategy. If you can't Compete Product then Compete Price.

->
But Player A don't know if Player B plays Low Price or High Price. Even B's Low Price is Dominant Strategy, would B play it. Or Player B just scares Player A - Like Poker, no ones knows other Player will Play - How do you know Player B has Dominant Strategy, like 4 Aces? For example, look at Game 4, both Play Low Price for its own Interest -> Both Loss = (0,0). Rather both Play High Price = (2,2) small Gain still better than Loss.
-> So, A needs to find out: - What is B's
Dominant Strategy or Not? - Why good for them. If B plays Dominant Strategy, what A should play?- Like We show you.


For Player A no Dominant Strategy.
How do you play?
- Yes, there is Solution, Method.
 


A Scientist said: Use Game Theory on Stock, can prove that: Almost People Play Stock has No Dominant Strategy = Strictly Dominated Strategy. See Math Formula of Payoff.
 

Buy Stock is Dominated Strategy
Because:
-
Not all, but almost People Play Stock, Making Decision irrational, Human Emotion Greed & Fear.
-> When Stock Up -> They Sell for Gains, or Buy, or Hold for more Gains on paper, because of Greed.
-> When
Stock Down -> They Sell for Losses, because of Fear.
-> When they Hold for 10 - 15 years, a Stock Crash comes like Tsunami, fast & furious -> They run. Sell for Losses everything. Recently Stock just little pumps Cooling Down in few weeks, not a Stock Crash like 2000, 2008, erased all Gains in 2018.
=> That's why: - Don't see people Hold Stock for 20 years like almost people Buy Home. They keep Changing Strategy Buy, Sell, Hold Stocks when Stock Price Ups, Downs.

Buy Home is Dominant Strategy
Because: Regardless Home Up = High Price, Down = Low Price, like Play Low Price, High Price, always the Game's Payoff is A Home to Live = Dominant Strategy.

People Buy Home for a long time at least 20 years. Regardless Home Up, Down, still have A Home to Live. => Live either Pay Rent = Rent keep increasing.
Or Pay Mortgage
= cheaper, until 0.0$ Rent + Home Value increase.



 

A Home to Live = Dominant StrategyRegardless Home Up, Down. Different with Stock.
-> If you Buy Home, just Buy it. Don't Wait for right time = Buy Home & Wait. Don't Wait & Buy Home.
-> A lot people waiting since 1998, at that time
Interest Rate = 6.5% go down, waiting 20 years ago for Right Time. Still waiting after 20 years



Game Theory is about: One's Gains. Other's Losses. Play Give back some times. Why? Because use Game Theory, Scientist proved that most people are Making Decision irrational for their own Interest, Gains.

- It's Law of Super Nature -> Give back to get more.

-> Billionaire Warren Buffett, lives frugal life, eat lunch $6 at Mac Donald, live in Home, not Manson, drive used car. Give back Billions, 1/2 his net worth
B (Row) / A (Col) Low Price High Price
Low Price (0,0) (4,-2)
High Price (-2,4) (2,2)

- Game 4: Dominant Equilibrium = (0, 0) because both Players plays for both Self-Interest, ignore the other's Interest.

- In this Game, Company B, and Company A in competition by High Price or Low Price. B & A Low Price Payoffs = (0,0).

- If B Low Price,  Payoffs = (4, -2) Because A High Price. - Similarity, If A Low Price, then Payoffs = (-2, 4) Because B High Price. The Payoffs = (0,0) for both, because both Low Price. Which is Dominant Equilibrium, not always the best Choice = Both Low Price Losses (0,0) rather both High Price (2,2) = small Gain. -> So the Player can handle the big Loss, like Low Price, for a long time, or one less Loss than the other Player, is in better position to put the other Player out of business because Both Low Price.

In this Game 4, both Company A & B want to Gain market shares by Playing Low Price than other = High Price. So Low Price is Dominant Strategy for both own Interest. But because both Low Price -> So both Loss or no Gain (0,0), because Gain at Low Price only when other at High Price. But no Players want High Price -> As a result, both play Low Price =No Gains or even Loss.

A Scientist said
: - Not easy to Play these kinds of Games. You need smart people in Table make big difference. Play Game Theory, Scientist can predict, forecast the Payoffs of the Game, such as, Gains, Losses, minimized Losses, Equilibrium, Human Behaviour rational or irrational in Making Decisions in Economics, Policy, Stock Market, International Conflict, Consumerism, Pricing ... Which is very important.

- In Game 3: Dominant Strategy: In this Game 3, both Company A & B want to Gain market shares by Playing Low Price than other = High Price. But different with Game 4 because Game 3, B has Dominant Strategy but A don't. So, what ever A play Low price or High Price -> B always better play Low Price in this case for better Payoffs. Depend on Data, B's Dominant Strategy could be Play High Price not Low Price.


=> Human is not smarter than Math, Complex Computer Algorithm. 

 


A Scientist: - Design a Game Theory between 2 Players. Each Player is given some money to play the Game. Time = in 20 years using Historical Data.

Player B Strategy: - Pay Mortgage and Buy Home

Player A Strategy: - Pay Rent and Buy Stock.

The Game's Payoff is big Payoff 10 x times for the Play B = Pay Mortgage and Buy Home than Play A = Pay Rent and Buy Stock.

The Scientist said: - Very surprised when you analyse Data & Strategy in the Game, help you solve Problems by Making Decisions by Choices, and avoid Making Decision irrational


 

NOTE: Game Theory has applications in all fields of social science, economics, policy, as well as logic and computer science used to a wide range of behavioural relations and making decisions. A lot big Corporations, Financial, Technology, Policy, HR, Stock Investment, International Conflict, Competition, Banks, hire Scientists using Data Intelligence & Strategy for Making Decisions.
 


Professor Chu, plays Game Theory to demonstrate:
Human Emotion vs. Choices



Game 1:- Domination Strategy Game 3 x 4 Choices.
- Play B Dominant Play
Dominating Strategy. vs. Play A Dominated Play: Optimum Strategy
-----------------------------

"Amazon is not too big to fail," Bezos said, in a recording of the meeting that CNBC has heard. "In fact, I predict one day Amazon will fail. Amazon will go bankrupt. If you look at large companies, their lifespans tend to be 30-plus years, not a hundred-plus years."

Game 4: Why both do not Play High Price for both small Gains (2,2) ?
-> Both can't Play High Price, because B's Gains Play Low Price (Interest) is A's Loss Play High Price. And VS. => So A or B has no other Choice but Play Low Price is the best Interest or Dominant Strategy regardless the other Play's doing. Because if you don't Play Low price the other Player will Play Low Price and Gains. Thus You more Losses B= (-2, 4), A = (4,-2). So both Play No Gains or even both Losses, better than the other Player Play Low Price Gains, other Player Lose. => A's Gains are B's Losses. B's Gains are A's Losses = Both Play Low Price for its best Interest (Gains).

-
People don't understand. Why not both Play High Price small Gains. Simple. Right. Thanks very much? - But not easy! No easy Compromise because both Play for its best Interest. Not because Lack of Communication (Human). Even if both A & B agreed Play High Price, but B Play Low Price -> A will have heavy Loss play High Price. A Dilemma. -> That's why War, Conflict happen involving a lot smart people on negotiation Table using Human Communication Skill. But no result. Solve problem need Complex Algorithm.

->
But there is Solution. Can't explain here. Scientists apply Data Intelligence + Game Theory solve a lot complex problems. Can't Solve complex problems without Data.

-> Game Theory is NOT Play Chess Game, Toy Game. It used Complex Algorithm complexity to solve Problems 
 



Millionaire Households Rank in the World. New update. | Data vs. Perception, Exaggeration. After reading this, Continue reading: Click here


Japan: 127 millions, the best in Asia, G7.

- 48.9%
less than $100,000.
- Canada more millionaires 4.5% than Japan 2.7%. If Housing in Toronto not cooling in 2017, Canada = 5.5 %, more double Japan.
- Japan = 4 x Much Less Bottom Line only 5.3%, More Middle Class 48.4%, better than any G7. Although Less Millionaire 2.7%.
- Only 2.7% millionaires less than Singapore= 4%, Hong Kong 3.5% population are Millionaire. Lowest millionaire population only 2.7% in G7.
- Data true, reflect most Homogeneous Society, like South Korean.


US: 326 millions - In G7 Industrialized Countries
- Richest country in the World.
- 28,4% Less than $10,000
- 60,0% Less than $100,000,
10% more than most Rich Industrialized Countries
-
US has A Changing Demographics.
- US has 33.6% Middle Class population, 10% less than most Rich Industrialized Countries.
- US has big gap between Rich (the Millionaires, Billionaires) & Poor.
- US has more 2.5% of Millionaires, billionaires than any Industrialized Countries.
 
Just update: NOTE: 90% Wealth, Net worth is Home. No one puts $100,000 cash under bed. Net worth = Home (90%) + Car + Cash + Bank Account + Stock + Anything can sell - Liability (Debt)

- Canada & Graph:
37 millions - Has 48.9% less than $100,000 - More millionaires / population = 4.5%, compared to rich countries in Asia: Singapore 4%, Japan 2.7%, Hong Kong 3.5%, South Korea 1.8%, G7 like German 3.2%, France 3.3%, Italy 3.1%,  after US = 7.1%, UK 4.8%. Because Housing Cooling only 1/2 Recovery in Toronto (else = 6.0 % @ peak home price). Before Housing booming in Toronto, in 2013 = 3.7% millionaires, when 2013 Ave Home Price = $523,000. In Nov, 2018, Ave Home Price Toronto = $869,870. Predict 2020 = 6.0% millionaires.
NOTE
: Ave Toronto Home Price today in Nov 6/ 2018 in GTA still los $100,000, Home in Downtown Toronto still lost $200,000, if compared to peak Ave Toronto Home Price in April, 2017. No problem!

-> People have worry about Win/Loss few thousands then never have peace of mind when Stock Up & Down -> Lost $100,000 No big deal. Home is Win Big, Lost Big. A risk to take if want big. Work harder, Saving. Stock Market recent down 10% from peak in 2018, but nothing compares with Toronto Housing Cooling started in July 2017. Ave Home Price today, although has recovered half of losses, still lost $100,000 -> $200,000.

-
Chile considered rich country, highest Wealth in Latin America, 3 x times better than Argentina, Brazil, 18 million population, 36% less than $10,000, 89% less than $100,000.
-
Brazil: 209 millions, 74% less than $10,000, 98% less than $100,000
 
--------------------------------

- 51% Canadian are Middle Class Home Owners. In many Provinces, in Rural areas, small Towns, Home cheaper. For example, Quebec Ave Home around $230,000, Montreal $330,000, 2rd largest City in Canada after Toronto, GTA.
- Rich Canadian Middle Class Home Owners,
House Hold Millionaires live in Toronto, Vancouver. Because Home Price in Toronto, Vancouver more than double the rest of Canada.

- 1/2 million dollars will be on Top 10% population in most Rich Countries and Industrialized Countries like Canada, Japan, UK, German, France, Italy ..

-> People see one side of the equation is narrow minded.
Net worth = ?

- Why most development countries in Asia, like Thailand has more population less $10,000, less $100,000 ?
-
Could be in their Culture, Life Style, and Salary. Their Family has One Home is transferred from Grand Parent -> Parent -> Children. In Industrialized Countries this could Create extra 5 Homes not 1, because all live independently. Asia's culture, they all live in same Home, less Rent, less Living Expensive, when Salary not good. Share, Inherits same Home. -> Rather Saving for Buy New Home, they Spend all, Travel. Less worry Rent, Mortgage, Food. -> Thus not add-on value. Unlike Western Industrialized Countries, Children grow up, live away from Home -> Live independent. Have their own Home, Condos. Thus add-on more values for their own. When their parent get older, or died, then Home is transferred to Children + Children's own Add-on values. -> Next generation richer than previous.
Life Style = More than half
population still live in rural, farming, where they earn few dollars / day.


About Scientist Collect & Analyse Data: All is about Data. No comment. No mouth, tongue. No biases. No perception. Just look at these Data, will tell a lot about Social Policy, Social Classes, Demographics, Rich & Poor, the Middle Class, Working Class, Industrialized Countries, the World, big countries like China, India ...
For example, look at Data between Japan & other rich country, its equally Wealth Distribution much better, because of homogenous population, compared to US has the most diverse population. Re-unification of German East & West shows an increase 40.6% less than $10,000 highest in G7 Industrialized Countries. China reduced poverty alot only 33.4% population over 1billion people in bottom line, compared to India 90% population in bottom line.
Middle Class:
- Japan has more 2% Middle Class than Canada, Canada has more 2% Middle Class population than UK, 13% more than US. US has the most Millionaires & Billionaires in the World. A lot more ... Can't explain here

 

Canada: 37 millions, in G7 Industrialized Countries
- Less than $100,000: Canada 48.9%, US 60%, Japan 48.9%, China 93%, UK 50.6%, German 62%, S.Korea 60%, Thailand 99%, India 99.3%, Indonesia 99%, Philippine 99.2%, and 95% World population.
- Less than $10,000: Canada 20.7%, US 28.4%, Japan 5%, German 40.6%, UK 17.5%, Italy 25%, France 22%, China 33.4%, India 90%, Thailand 89%, Philippine 86.6%, Indonesia 85.4%
- If Housing in Toronto not cooling in 2017, Canada = 5.5% millionaires, only after US 7.5%, more double Japan 2.7%. On Average Home Price, lost from $100,000 -> $200,000.

UK: 66 millions - The best in Europe, better than German, France, Italy. In G7 Industrialized Countries

- 17,5% Less than $10,000
- 50.6% Less than $100,000

- Which country has the most millionaire households / % population in the world? -> US has the most Households Millionaires, the most Millionaires, the most Billionaires in the world = 7% of Population had more than 1 Millions -> Billions, compared to most rich Industrialized Countries had Millionaires:  South Korea = 1.8%, Japan = 2.7%, German = 3.2%, Russian = 0.2%, China = 0.5%, Canada = 4.5%. Richest country in Asia, Hong Kong = 3.5%, Singapore = 4% of Millionaires more than 1 Million.
About China:
Has hundreds of millions Chinese people don't live in big City. As said, most rich People, rich Middle Class live in big City. But by Number not by % Population, China has the most Millionaires and Billionaires rank 2nd after US. China has 7.2 % or around 100 millions Middle Class had Net worth more than $100,000 -> Less than 1 millions dollars. More than 1/2 millions, you could be in Top 5% of Population. In China, Ave Net worth Middle Class ave = $50,000 USD (North America = $200,000), Ave Middle Class Income = $11000 usd / mo. This translates into few hundreds millions of Middle Class in this Category.

NOTE: More than 1/2 millions dollars (1/2 millions -> 2 millions dollars.) But Data said 1/2 millions is enough put you on Top 5% of China Population, Top 1% of India Population, Top 10% of Japan, Canada, UK, German, Italy, French, South Korea Population. All is about Data. No argue.

-> A Scientist said: -That's why scientist used Data. No Perception. ->
 
Let Data define value. Get Top 10% not easy. Take 20 years Get to Top 10% in big City. All is about Hardwork. -> Very difficult, like climb on Top mountain, Hard work, Hard ship, Patient.

-> A Person said: - Not easy to Get in Top 10% in big industrialized City, because of Living Expensive. Do grade 5 math  -> After Tax, Car, Insurance, Food, Rent, Phone, Hydro, Water, Job security on/off, Entertainment, Drink, Smoke, Vacation ... Nothing left. Even just try to make ends meet just pay for Living Expensive is tough, no Saving. If I didn't get in Middle Class 20 years ago, today probably, Net worth has less than $100,000 + debt, like 60% of US, 49% of Japan, 48% of UK, 90% China population. Data very true. In big City life always Ups and Downs. You can't avoid debt no matter how rich. Buy Home less than 10 years, after 2008, or, Home Ownership less than 50% is Bank's Home. -> Advice: -> Get In Middle Class, Start Saving early, the better, it helps. I live thru Toronto, I know. Who on Top 10%, no jealousy. Hardwork, Hardship, Deserve it.

-> We look at Data of population Middle Class, Millionaires, Billionaires by Region (Continent), US & Canada, is the richest  in the world: North America -> Western Europe -> South East Asia.

- How many US Adult had Net worth less than 100,000$?
= 60% of US population. Big gap between Rich & Poor. Compared to Canada = 48%, Japan = 49%.
-> Net worth less than $10,000, bottom line. How many % Adult Population in growing Asia Countries, like Thailand, Indonesia, Philippine, India.. Net worth less than $10,000, in poverty, bottom line? - Less than $10,000 = Thailand 90%, Indonesia 85.4%, Philippines 88.5%, Taiwan 22.5%, Japan 5.3%, India 90% -> Data said India hard to feed and improve life of more than 1 Billion people. Industrialized Countries: Italy = 25%, France 22%, Canada 20.7%, China 33.4%. US 28.4% -> Data said China more than 1 billions people has Population in Bottom Line only 5% less than US, German 40.6%, UK 17.5%
-> Net worth less than $100,000. S.Korea has 65%,
Japan = 49%, UK = 51%, German = 63%, China 90%, US 60%, Canada 48%. -> Check link above.

About the Author:
As Scientist, we used Data reflects the reality, not mouth, tongue. Avoid biases. Data said so.
A bit disclose:
-> I am a Canadian citizen like any Canadian citizen of all kinds of backgrounds live in the World most diverse, multi-culture big City Toronto. I started my life alone 18 years old in big Industrialized city Toronto, from
$0.0, no Degree. Then I started early career as a College Professor, became Toronto Middle Class 19 years ago quickly, usually take at least 15 years get in Middle Class. (See my cheque in Blog). Do not judge Scientist for their Research as long as Scientists no biases, use Data, not mouth and tongue. People don't like biases. Narrow minded. Canada is one of the few richest countries in the World. Every works hard and dreams to become Millionaire, Top 5% of Population. So far, I have been working for 20 years, and contributed nearly 1/2 millions in Taxes like other Middle Class working for 20 years. People, foreigners think Canada a lot benefits for citizens. The Reality is that as Middle Class, there are no any benefits available for you, although contribute a lot taxes. Use credit card when in need or sell Home. The only benefit after lost jobs is EI (Employment Insurance) for a while, barely enough to get by, max in a year, but depend on how long you work. To qualify for EI must work at least 5 months full-time, or work total 800 hours. That's why in Middle Class try hard to make ends meet, keep working, pay Bills, pay Debt like everyone.


Office is a beginning of new kind of Pos, new way of doing business in new Digital Economy. Invest in new future. The evolution of Pos since 50 years ago: Dummy Calculator -> PC Pos (millions and millions of dollars investment in PC Pos a waste of money) -> iPad Pos  -> Mobile Pos.

-> People use Office for all Pos tasks, Place Orders in one hand, so easy.
You still run Office on iPad like iPad Pos, Tablet, iPhone, Android, Galaxy Phone, Laptop.

A Restaurant said about Mobile Pos: - Without Office Mobile Pos, we need at least 25 iPad Pos, one / table, not including Staff. Specially weekend, very busy, crowded, all Tables are full. Each table needs 2 iPad, because customers can't wait for other guest finished to place order. Every one mobile takes order same time faster than one waits for other one take order using 1 iPad. Staff take orders, hundreds of orders, then carbon copy paper bill cost 5000$ / year, enter orders in Pos, process payment. Repeat back & forth every days, months, years.
Office Mobile Pos is only choice, cost
$0.0 for iPad. While using iPad Pos cost at least $10,000 just for 25 iPad / Table, not including Licence / iPad. Using Office is like having hundreds of customers as staff take orders, process orders for you every days. Reduce a lot of pressure on staff, labour cost very high. Office Mobile Order also helps business increase revenue up to 45%, better than Drive-thru, less cost, easy implement, easy use.
=> Right now in Japan, China, they already build the first Generation of Robotics for Restaurant replace Server bring food to customers to save labour cost. And here, we still back & forth every day. No wonder less profit, inefficient.

Why use Vend as example respectly?

- A Computer Scientist & Professor, who is Chief Architect, Design, Data Science, and Code Framework, UI/ UX Front to Back-end, Database Design, Cloud, App said:
"- Easier Said than Done!  5 millions can hire 100 developers each 50,000 $ dollars. Vend, 100 millions dollars Software Company, not small, has hundreds of smart and talented Developers. Its Software is the best in business. Although Vend's New Version has: Search Customer by Name -> Add Customer. Office also has. - Vend: Search Item -> Item Option -> Add-to-cart. Office has same Search Item, Search Customer, in 1 Search Box, Vend in 2 diff Search Box. (see photo) - Vend: display favourite Items at Main Menu. Like Office Menu. => But both software is very different. No one copy. - Vend can't: Mobile Pos, Mobile Order, Customer Self-Order, Table Manager for Restaurant, Work All Devices ...Vend iPad only."

NOTE: So far, Investors invested 100 millions in Vend Pos. It received 20 millions USD from Peter Thiel’s Valar Ventures and Square Peg Capital. https://blog.vendhq.com/post/64901824985/vend-raises-20m-funding-round-co-led-peter-thiels-valar-ventures-square-peg-capital.

CEO said Total value at 100 millions. https://pitchbook.com/newsletter/vend-secures-9m-investment.

Start-up

Almost every Big company starts from a small Start-up, such as, Facebook, Alibaba, Apple, Amazon, Oracle ... However, Data shows that lack of Start-ups from diverse background, minority, women. Toronto, 1st largest city Canada, and 3rd largest city in US & Canada, most diverse city in the world, attract a lot diverse talents around the world, is becoming a major hub of Start-ups after Silicon Valley's high cost living and labour. In September, 2018, Uber invested more than 200 M in new Engineering Lab in Toronto, “This expansion comes at an exciting time for engineers at Uber,” said Thuan Pham, Uber’s Chief Technology Officer. Microsoft moved its Head Office in Toronto massive 132,000 square foot space. 


- Data shows gap presentation of Minority, Women Start-ups.

How Office Helps Business Keep Customers even more important than find New Customers.

However, the problem for Small Businesses is that they always spend time to look for New Customers, but ignore or don't know how to keep Exist Customers. As a result, their customers go to competitors. -> To keep customers you need to spend money not just talk, smile -> Some free money or give free something like free some services, some products.

1) Build up Customer Database, the most important: 90% Businesses don't have Customer Database, Golden Data. What a big lost no Customer Database. Using Office, after few years, you can have thousands of customers in Customer Database System. Then you can export Customer Data to Excel to keep private.

2) Email Marketing: for Promotion. Keep contact. Informing ... Office lets you check customers from Customer List, then send email to many customers.

3) Customer Retention: Modern day Sales & Marketing, Get Customers in store easy, but Keep Customers difficult. Office creates few Customer Retention Techniques: Coupon, Loyalty, Discount.

- Coupon: Give 5$ Coupon, Print on receipt. Scientist found: - 90% Customers will back Store or Give 5$ coupon to friends. A Referral. Coupon -> Customer Retention + Referral. Generate more Customers.

- Loyalty Program
: Like points, stamps. 1) You setup Loyalty Program based on SubTotal. such as, 1% Loyalty. Thus 100$ -> $1 earn Loyalty.
2) You setup Loyalty Program based on Visit. such as, Setup each Visit = 1 Stamp. Each Stamp = 2$. -> Thus Helen has 5 Visit -> 5 Stamp earn Loyalty = 10$. That's why Office Tracking Visit -> Look at Visit @ Order History. In photo Helen = 5 Visits. -> Determine a Customer  How Much They Earn Loyalty. Then Email/ Text to inform customers -> Bring them back store = Customer Retention.

For example, Mac Donald has Loyalty Program = Buy each coffee -> Get 1 stamp. -> 8 Stamps get 1 coffee free. -> Thus, after spent money for 5 coffees, 90% will come back to buy more 3 coffee in order to get 1 free coffee. -> This called Customer Retention to encourage customers back store, spend more.
For example, Encourage customers Go Back Store -> Loyalty Program based on Visit.  Encourage customers Spend more -> Loyalty Program based on SubTotal.
-> That's why Office track & provide Data for Visit & SubTotal.

- Discount: Rather reduce Price. Give Discount. Business No Profit because Keep Reducing Price. In the end, every one Out of Business.

4) Customer Order History -> Customer Profile: Helps business know What Customer Wants -> Customer Profile. Thus when have promotion for that Product or that Service, you inform customer ->  Bring customer back store. Promotion to Buy other products fit in Customer Profile. For example, Big Businesses analyse Customer Data of Customers, who buy a lot baby diapers -> She is having baby -> Send her promotion of Baby Products. A Data Scientist said:- By analyse, look at Customer History Data -> You can know a lot about a Customer, social status, their career, their earning, their hobby, what Products & Services they like ... So that you create a Campaign to target them, bring them back store, retention. Unfortunately, a lot Businesses don't have system to Track Customer History Data. A big lost.
NOTE: That's why Office, by Design, can Track Customer History Data for every each Items bought by Customer.

5) E-commerce, Mobile Order: Helps Business Do Online Business. Track Pick-up / Delivery.

Cloud & Mobile Model, Mobile Order improve, enhance Customer Experience. -> Most Big Billion Businesses run by CEO background in Technology, like Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon, Google, Netflix, Oracle ... Their Vision ran business different.

- Almost small business stores still don't have Mobile Order like Star Bucks. Mac Donald just offers Mobile Order -> But hard to use. Customers said:- We just need few minutes to place order, quick, easy. Not Social App used every day. Phone already had so many Apps.

Recent Statistics shows
: Today busy time, people less sit & eat in store. They Drive-Thru (need large parking & drive-thru space, very expensive, not for all location) or Mobile Order and Pickup. Some Businesses have parking but can't drive thru. They creatively offer their staff bring food, orders to parking where customers park. Customers don't need to walk-in store pick-up. Which contributes to increase from 40% -> 50% of Sales. ->
Mr. Schultz has Vision the Future of Store in Digital Economy. Small business can't see in Tradition.

Mobile Order much better than Drive Thru:
1) Less expensive cost, Parking space & construction Drive Thru 2) No cost of 2 Staff Take Orders like Drive-thru. Mobile Order customers self take order. 3) Quick, fast, easier than Drive thru line-up 4) Save lot of Time & Money. 5) Easy Setup. 6) Reach out diverse customers rather than same customers almost 95% same community.

- Office is the first product, by Design, that offer Mobile Pos, Mobile Order that doesn't cost a lot of money, make it easy for all kinds of customers to use. Even Vend Pos, 100 millions dollars investment still doesn't offer Mobile Pos, Mobile Order -> Then Who Can?
- Almost Pos: PC Pos, iPad Pos.
- Office least Requirement
: iPhone or Android Phone, Pos Printer. Not seen on market a system that does everything, Pos, Mobile Order, Tracking Data Analytics, Order Management... A -> Z only on Mobile like Office. Ask other Software Company: - Can we just use your system on Mobile only. -> They said: - No. Can't.
Maybe few small features.
NOTE: Office can use on Laptop, Tablet, iPad, iPhone, Samsung Phone - All Devices. Other System: No Laptop, no Tablet, no Android Phone, no iPhone -> Mostly Pos on iPad, because By Design, Lay out its Interface, UI / UX on iPad Large Screen, Space, easier than Small Screen Mobile. Very hard by Design a whole Pos system fit-in small screen Mobile. -> Other System only iPad Pos. -> That's why called iPad Pos.

Office easy Use
: Touch Office icon on mobile -> Open.
Office Technology: Use the latest $400 million USD Framework Technology that has been used by Billions Software Company .
Office Affordable: - No extra Licenses,
unlimited Licences, no extra Hardware, Software. Other package: 5 Staff  use, Cost = $450 usd / mo, $5400 usd / year. Office cost less than $950 usd. Office is only system allowing Customers Order in / out store using their mobile.

- When will it happen to a store near you?

A Story:- I live in big city more than 25 years, not see this happens yet. Mobile Pos and Mobile Order integration. When Customers can place order in / out store using their Mobile? -> I see this from big Business Star Bucks, MacDonald just has, but not see from small business, mom & pop Store. Only 1 Japanese Sushi restaurant gives us one White thick & heavy Tablet Hardware, not Android nor iPad, special design by a software company that also built-in ordering software @ our table 4 Guest for us to place order. We keep ordering food from this tablet # 4, like Office Table Manager. When done, we waive. A server came with a Debit/ Credit Card Payment Terminal rent from a local Bank, at our Table for Payment & Print receipt. The owner said, very expensive cost $10000 for a whole Ordering System. It is worth it. This Automation helps restaurant alot, specially when busy, a lot customers. The Ordering System does not not integrates with Pos system. Both system separated. Staff must input data on print receipt into a separate Pos system. Like tradition Restaurant input data from paper bill into Pos system. We ask if can place order from outside store like Mobile Order. He said: - No. ==> See right side Office.

NOTE: Japanese Business is very good at Innovation, at using technology for efficiency, modernizing, and Automation. In Japan, a lot Sushi Restaurants by Design, no server: Customers seat around Kitchen Counter -> Chef delivery food to Customers on trail rail around counter. This is good for small restaurant.

How Office System Working.
- Store minimum requirement, just need an iPhone or Android Phone or a Tablet, an iPad.
- When customers come & sit at Table # 4 -> Staff or Customers use smartphone. Can't afford each Customer / Tablet. -> Each Guest or one Guest at Table #4 Place Order for all Guests: Add-to-Cart -> Just Press [Park] blue button. Then 10 mins later, Staff or Customer continues Order: Add-to-Cart -> press [Park] on Menu.
-> After Done Eat.
Staff comes to Table 4 or Customers come to Staff Counter -> Pay by Cash or by Credit Card -> Staff touch [Table] at Menu next [Park] button -> Touch Table T4 -> Touch [Pay] -> Popup a Pay UI -> Enter Payment -> Automatically Calculate Change, Tip, Disc + Print Receipt -> Done. See Slide Show @ Active Table Manager.
-> Customers can Mobile Order outside store.

Small Business Enterprise Success

1- Keep Changing. Repeat same business model 5 years = same stuff, 1 Store => To next 10 years = still repeat same stuff, 1 Store, then never grow, boring. Need Change.

2- Innovation, Creativity. Can't run business the same model over and over again. Be different -> Innovative. Not follow tradition, copy others, do the same others doing.

3- Leverage Technology, the Internet, Cloud, Mobile in Large Scale. Without Technology hard to grow next level, even big like StarBucks. The Internet, Cloud, Mobile will help businesses do business faster, efficient, reach out more customers, large scale.

4- Surround, hire smart, talented people
.
According to Steve Jobs, Jack Ma, you should hire the smart people. -> When your business at 1/2 millions need certain kinds of people, at 5 millions need different kinds of people. So on.

5- Believe in yourself. Think differently. Open to new ideas. Not afraid of mistakes. Learn from mistakes
.


6- Think Big
.
You open small business but always think expand, large scale. Today, Internet, Digital Economy allow small business grow business large scale less cost.

For example,
rather open 10 locations cost alot money + manpower + hard to manage -> You open Online Business, Cloud, Mobile, less cost, less manpower, easy manage, and reach out more customers than even open 100 locations.


  


Office is a beginning of new kind of Pos, new way of doing business in new Digital Economy. Invest in new future

Why Mobile Order & Pick-up better than Drive-thru?
Both Sales Channels same: Order & Pick-up. But Mobile Order better:
1) Easy, less Cost to build Mobile Order than to construct Drive-Thru: need large private Packing, Rent
2) Time is Money. Cost Staff: Mobile no need staff. Customer self-order. Save Time. While Drive-thru needs 2 x Staff take order. Time consuming.
3) Location:
Only few Stores can build Drive-thru for their store. Need license, permit.
4) No wait in line for Mobile Order. Staff even brings food to customers waiting in store's public parking. But Drive-thru wait in long line

gallery thumbnail
2) GUEST see this Screen -> Guest View:
- Guest at Table 3 touch [Table] button menu next [Park] any time, see this screen. Touch [Guest @ T3] button to Review Orders, Item List, and which Items served.
- Guest View can't see Button & Features used by Staff View Login

Active Table Manager = Tracking Table currently occupied, Guest eating. Track: Who place order, Guest or Staff, Name & Photo of Staff? - Which Items for what Table/ Seat? - Item Desc, Price, Qty, Is Item served? - Table/Seat, Total Sales, Order Number#, Date&Time ...

Guest: Only 2 x screens: Add-to-Cart, finished -> just touch [Park] -> touch [Table] anytime review List Orders.

These Steps exactly What You See Is What You Get.
- Bigger Photo
may same screen size of your phone. Touch screen.



Jack Ma quit teaching in College to experience real life. He saw opportunity in small business from watch movie Forest Gump. He said: "- I've seen people make a fortune by catching shrimps, but I've never seen anyone make a fortune by catching sharks and whales.” - This is how Jack Ma parallels Forrest Gump into Alibaba’s successful business strategy.

As we said :- In any countries, 90% are small businesses, mom & pop stores, Home based businesses. They are in millions and create most jobs. While medium & big businesses are in thousands.


Small Business Enterprise Success continues...

7) Open to new ideas. Think out of the Box.
Inside the box, you will not see things clear.
Small Business Strategy
=> Compete with the bigger, do not do the same they have done. Then hard to win. Must differentiate from them.  

When Less Money + Less Resources -> Use the Technology + the Internet in order to Leverage your Potentials, Compete the bigger, and Grow Business next level. This Strategy we called:" - When you are small -> Use Innovation against Tradition. Use Less gains More. Use Small against Big. Use Weak against Strong. -> And The Tool is the Internet. The Tradition Management in back Office will not work if not Leverage the Internet, the Technology." -> That's why you see most CEO from big Companies are Technology background. Even StarBucks hired CEO Technology background. A Coffee Company, 25000 locations runs like A Technology Company efficiency, large scale. Mr. Schultz alot experience build from stores in Tradition. He recognized doing Business in Digital Economy is different. But his Limitation is no Technology background, not Like it, not mindset for that -> So he hired new CEO with Technology background. -> Today, every thing you want to Manage & Sell has been Managed & Sold by Technology -> The Boss, the Manager do not like Technology, mindset not in Technology, Tradition Management Style -> Will never ever use Technology. Don't believe it, not Like It. Even they know Technology good for them.

2) STAFF see this Screen -> Staff View:
- Staff Login -> Touch [Table] button on menu, see List all Active Tables occupied by Guest. Touch each Table see List Item.

- When an Item is prepared ready for Guest, Staff touch
Item Ticket Number [469] = YES, also tell which Item has been place order first.
- When Staff Login @ Table Take Order, the Name & Photo of Staff appear, not Phone icon & Self order.

- When Guest @ T1 Pay
, Staff touch T1 -> [Pay] tab for Payment T1.
--------------------------------------
A customer Story:
What we want is simple:

1)
Mobile Pos easy for Staff Take order, easy for Customer, Cashier. We like new stuff, new model Mobile Pos, portable, mobile, the next Generation. And what ever devices available we can use as Tablet Pos, iPad Pos, touch Laptop Pos. No cost for extra Hardware.
NOTE: 5 staff need 5 iPad = Cost a lot money, specially countries in under development. Office goes Global; While other Systems too much cost, can't. Every one has smartphone. A lot businesses, Staff, Cashier, Customers use Smart phone + Office  = Easy, Convenient -> Can't afford so many iPad for each Staff, Customers, Casher. That's why need Mobile Pos.

2) Staff Take Order using iPhone, Android Phone, Galaxy Phone, iPad, Tablet, iPhone, Android. We can't find any System offer this, only iPad.

3) Customers Self-Order in store Bring All Devices, using what ever Mobile they have either iPhone or Android Phone. Can't expect all Customers have iPhone only. Big challenge even for 100 millions Software Companies. Because can't afford Time & Money to build different Pos App (big App not small App) for different Phone.

4) All-in-One App, no plug-in, seamless Integration for easy use & manage.

5) Mobile Order, Good for Sell & Marketing. Reach out more customers out of small Store's Space. Today, less people eat in store -> See Drive-Thru & Pick-up @ MacDonald more than people eat in store. Although Office Mobile Pos is also used for Local Order & Delivery. Why Local Delivery no better than Mobile Order & Pick-up? -> 1) Local Delivery is not Drive-thru & Pick-up. 2) People don't want big order like over $25 for Delivery. 3) Store doesn't make money use Driver to Delivery for $25. Gas, Insurance, high Fee. 4) Wait long time. 5) Local Delivery only in limited Area near store. No reach out more customers like Mobile Order.
->
Mobile Pickup the best choice, like Star Bucks -> Help increase 40% - 45% Revenue. Most Pos don't Sell, don't generate Revenue, only Take order, like dumb Terminal. We used to run business use Paper Bill, no Pos. Revenue more important than Pos. Our store can't Drive Thru. Mobile Order & Pickup is used like Drive-thru, less cost, easy implement. Staff bring Order to Customers pick-up at Parking. No Walk-in. Convenient, save Time. We also use Mobile Order for Delivery, but must order over 25$, and live in a close area near Store.
NOTE: Office Order Management track: Time of Orders & When pick-up / delivery, Address, Phone, Status: Is pick-up / delivery yet ? of Orders. -> Technology fast, efficiency, large scale. Human can't handle, back & forth, few customers, small scale.

6) Price & Affordable. All-in-one Licence. No extra License, no extra Terminal, no extra Register.
=> Only Office can offer all 5 solutions, no extra licences
.

4) Staff touch [Pay] tab see this screen [Pay] popup for that Table T1, not T3. After paid, T1 not see on Active Table Manager.

- After Done, Staff come table T3 or Customer @ T3 come @ Counter for Payment.

- Staff touch [Table] menu see List all Active Tables -> Touch T3 -> List T3 -> touch [Pay] tab popup this UI Payment screen -> Enter Data to Process Payment. When enter, Data self calculated like Excel & Print receipt. ==> Done! No back & forth
---------------------------------

A Computer Scientist said:
- Pos (Point of Sales) used for B2C or Business-to-Customer to register or enter sales data into a Pos System in order to keep track Sales, invented 50 years ago, could be replaced by another Technology more powerful.

A Computer Scientist said: - As a Scientist who spent years to Design Software from scratch, not from existing Product, who research in Framework, Enterprise Architecture, MVC, Data Driven Architecture, Database Design & Implementation, UI/ UX, App Work On Devices, can understand this. No text book, school test, school teach this. What customer said is a proof. Why Big Business invest 400 millions USD to build Framework for? Data Driven Architecture - What about it? - Pos, invented 50 years ago, could be replaced, disrupted by another Technology more powerful. The next revolution would be Mobile Pos, Mobile Order, Automation, more Affordable for customers use.

------------------------------------------------

A customer said: - We phone 3 company provide Pos, and 3 of them valued 80 millions -> 100 millions in investment. The best in business. What their System can offer:
- System run only iPad. No iPhone, no Android, no Tablet, no Laptop.
- No Mobile Pos, no Mobile Order.
- Impossible Customer Self-order use either Android Phone or iPhone.
- 3 x iPad: 1 at Counter, 2 for Staff carry in store =
$2000 / year.
=> Only Office can offer this solution, no expensive Licences.

 

Office is not just another Pos.

"- The big opportunity is in Global, where small businesses don't have a lot of resources like SMEs in Industrialized Countries can afford a Pos System with 3 Staff / Pos = 2400 $ usd / year. That's why Office All-in-One Price is so affordable, no cost extra Licenses, no cost extra hardware, no cost extra iPad. A smartphone is good enough to run a whole All-in-One Office. Do all tasks from Front-end to Admin Back-end, from A -> Z. "

=> Most Pos today help Business Take Orders, Manage Orders, but don't help Generate Revenue. This is one of the difference between Office and other Pos Systems.

=>
Rather open 10 locations cost alot money + manpower + hard to manage -> You open Online Business, Cloud, Mobile, less cost, less manpower, and reach out more customers than even open 100 locations.

 
 

Why Mobile Order & Pick-up better than Drive-thru?

Today, less people eat in small space store. Attract people may live far away, drive around in the area, on the Go work or Go home. Attract people from different communities. Mac Donald's example 55% revenue from Drive-thru. Both Sales Channels same: Order & Pick-up. But Mobile Order better:

1) Easy, less Cost to build Mobile Order than to construct Drive-Thru: need large private Packing, Rent

2) Time is Money. Cost Staff: Mobile no need staff. Customer self-order. Save Time. While Drive-thru needs 2 x Staff take order. Time consuming.

3) Location: Only few Stores can build Drive-thru for their store. Need license, permit.

4) No wait in line for Mobile Order. Even better than Drive-thru, Staff even brings food to customers waiting in store's public parking. Drive-thru wait in long line, needs staff take orders.

5) Mobile Order no need driver, no need Delivery, cost money, staff waste time, no profit, wait long time for food delivery, like Local Delivery that needs order at least 25$, only limited area near store. Can't delivery far.

-> That's why Office built in Mobile Pos, Mobile Order, All-in-One App integrated, easy Update & Modification, Work All Devices that no Others built.
->  North America has 35 millions small businesses. Just have 15 - 20 thousands customers will translate 100 millions valued company, 2000 employees ave salary = $45,000. Or have 7 - 10 thousands customers will translate 40 - 50 millions valued company, and 1000 employees ave salary = $40,000.
A lot Internet Companies even no profit, but valued Billions of dollars. Office goes global where small businesses can afford Office All-in-One Price.

-> Why we can reduce Price but others can't?
-
Because the Framework Technology allows us to build software product so much Efficient, Light, Fast, Powerful, Large Scale, Data Access, Transaction Management, Remote Access Network, Memory Allocation, Resource Optimization. Which helps reduce cost of Hardware, Server, Network to host Office. While other system need multi millions platform, network, heavy-duty servers to host their software.

For example, our Cost / Office = 5$, other system may cost 10 times more = 50$ / Software of resource allocation for Network, Hardware, Servers. When having more customers, they keep adding more servers, more cost because their software heavy, not efficiency, consume a lot of Network & Servers' resources.

Another Example, You have e-commerce website, cost hosting 20 $ / month. Then your website has more customers to tens of thousands customers, not talking hundreds of thousands, millions, very slow, because your website is built by Web Software Technology not good, not efficient, not resource optimization. Data Access not efficient, congestion, traffic slow, bottom neck You can't re-code, re-design you website, even cost more, take years. So the only option is ask the Host Provider to increase hardware, keep adding more Memory Heap, more Servers, more Network. Now the Hosting Cost goes more triple from 25 $ / m -> 100$ / month. If you build software cost $100 / month, then you must charge business customers using your software for E-commerce website $150 / month to make profit. Big multi billions Corporation rely on their expensive multi millions Servers, Network. But small & medium Business that sell software can't hardy afford the cost. -> As a result, too late to re-code whole software again! That's why we keep talking about 400 millions usd Framework. People who never build Software Framework product, don't understand. Very hard to explain people never went thru hard experience. We no choice but scrap a whole our old software took 5 years Time & Money. No regret 5 years Time & Money wasted, better than keep building Office Building on a weak foundation. We choose re-build. -> However, you don't have to re-design a whole software. You can just add-on new Apps using different Technology like Framework, work on different Database or same Database, for new Projects.
 

- Drive Thru a lot cost, need private space Packing, more Rent, Staff Take Order, hard Build, long wait Line. 90% store can't construct Drive-thru, only big business.

-> While Mobile Order no need
private Parking, easy Build, Staff because Customer Take Order. Very tiny Cost.

- Big like Mac Donald, thousands Stores has: Drive Thru + Mobile. Small Business 1 small space Store needs Innovation.

-> That's why Office built in Mobile Pos, Mobile Order that no Others built.



Office's Park is different with Vend Pos's Park. Click & see Vend Pos latest Design  |  see Vend Pos old Design

NOTE:
So far, Investors invested 100 millions in Vend Pos. It received 20 millions USD from Peter Thiel’s Valar Ventures and Square Peg Capital. https://blog.vendhq.com/post/64901824985/vend-raises-20m-funding-round-co-led-peter-thiels-valar-ventures-square-peg-capital. Recently Dec, 2016 Vend Pos also received many other funding: 9 milllions, then 13 millions, 60 millions, and many other rounds. CEO said Total value at 100 millions. https://pitchbook.com/newsletter/vend-secures-9m-investment.

 
Vend's Park = When a customer buys something, but forget wallet home or something busy to leave store, will come back store later. Cashier Park that order, when customer comes back, cashier will retrieve that order, then finish the sales register of customer's order.
Use Office this Case: When Customer back, Cashier Retrieve & Fullfill order by Office Order Management -> Touch [Blue Button Payment] -> Enter data.

Office is used for all kinds of Businesses. Design System for Coffee, Restaurant Business, Business has Customers sit @ Table, Repeat order by Group of people ... is more difficult than Retail Business, Nails & Salon Business, Supper Market ... Which order more simpler, one customer Check-out one Order at a time, not repeat orders, not group of people order, not track Table/ Seat.

For the Businesses like Retail, not Food, Coffee, Table, Restaurant: Need collect Customer Info. Process One Order at a Time.
1) Touch [Add Customer Icon] next to [Park] button, will pop up an
UI Data Entry to collect data to Create Customer Account such as, Name, Birthday, Address, Phone, Email... and Save in Customer database system. If needed. -> 2) Add-to-Cart many Items to Create Order -> 3) Touch [Pay] next [Table] button, will popup UI Payment Data Entry enter data. No Park. No Table Manager -> Done. Order register in Office Order Management.
For example, Vend Pos By Design good for Retail Business but hard for Restaurant. In store, Customer buy some thing -> Staff Add-to-Cart items to Create Order + Create Customer Info if needed -> Check-out Pay -> Email & Print receipt. No Table Manager.

There are Systems By Design good use for Retail Business, Other Business, but not Food & Restaurant Business, and vice versa, by Design good for Food & Restaurant Business but not for Retail and Other Business. Office by Design good for all kinds of Businesses.

 
 


- A Coffee Store Company, but run like a Technology Company. Without Technology, will be very hard to grow Business next level, large scale.

- Office 1st Mobile Pos A - Z
- Add-to-Cart -> Pay -
> Business not Restaurant, not Table like Retail
- Add-to-Cart -> Park -> Restaurant
When design Pos, Developers follow tradition Pos on iPad first, easy Large Screen. No one though Pos is on Mobile, hard.

Office is
by Design Mobile first.

Follow Tradition = Not want to Change. Copy ideas. Not Think difference.
 

- The First Mobile Pos, Mobile Order Integration. Easy use. Office least Requirement: iPhone or Android Phone, Pos Printer. Not see on market.

- Important Office Features not found in other System

- Office run on Multi-Devices can run on iPhone, Android Phone, iPad, Tablet, Laptop. While other System runs only iPad, not even iPhone, not Android Phone, not Laptop, not Tablet.
- Office by Design for all kinds of Businesses.
=> We check with many Software Companies, that investors put at least 100 millions dollars. They don't have these features. In any country, small businesses around 90%, in millions of them. Big market. While medium & big businesses in thousands.
We build Office
70% Time & Money less than other Company. Their App run only iPad. No Mobile. No Android & iPhone. No Laptop. While Office all Devices.
=>
All is about Design. Many ways of Designs to solve problem. Good Design made easy, save time & money. Why many company with 100 millions investment still can't offer features like Office? -> Feature like Mobile Order, they can't, given big resources, alot developers

Pos Revolution:

Reduce Cost, any where, convenient. On hand Customer Place Order. Staff Mobile Pos, Take Order anywhere, On site.

- Office Mobile Pos = Big Stand Pos, iPad Pos

 Benefit: Mobile, not heavy fixed stand. Customers Take Order in store. Reduce Cost: 1) Both Staff and Customers Take Order. 2) Can't afford each Customer / Tablet. 3) Use Carbon Paper Bill (350$ / mo, $4500/y) & Cashier back & forth. 4) Buy Hardware Terminal, Tablet

A Developer said:
Design Software run on Laptop = not enough, will re-Design later. Thus waste Time & Money. Get Right at the Beginning. The Reality is different. => Today, only 30% Users run software on Laptop. And 70% Customers Bring All Devices.
-> How do they build Office in Cloud and App, UI/UX on Framework, Work All Devices. No many Apps cost Time & Money, even
100 millions company can't afford another App for iPhone, another App for Android, another App for Tablet, for Laptop, which makes very difficult for small businesses no IT like restaurants, mom&pop shop ... to Use & Update & Maintain all kinds of Apps.
-> As a result Office has advantages, can offer
Self-Order & Mobile Order, which allows customers Place Order use their iPhone or Android Phone, Samsung Galaxy. While other System only iPad. Now you understand why App Works All Devices has advantages: 1) Easy Use & Maintain All-in-One App 2) Customers Bring All Devices. 3) Self Order & Mobile Order require Bring All Devices. 4) Save big Time & Money. Reduce cost 70% of Software Development, and achieve Bring All Devices: Laptop, iPhone, iPad, Tablet, Android Phone, Samsung Galaxy. 5) Currently, this is popular Software App Development.

=
> Compete with the bigger, but do the same they have done. Then hard to win. Must differentiate from them.

All Pos is the same, although different Look & Feels, different Designs, but result is same as Pos. Now you design another Pos, then nothing new, the same - Just Another Pos. That's why Office design A Different Pos. Features like: Mobile Pos, Mobile Order, Customer Self-Order Automation, Office Menu, Office Order Management, Office Table Manager, Office Card, Search, Pricing & Licences, Easy Use, Work All Devices, Work All Businesses (i.e. Some Pos good for Retail, but no good for Food, Restaurant, and Vice Versa) ... differentiate Office from other Pos.

NOTE: This Developer is right. Well explain. Office not just Mobile Pos, but also iPad Pos, Tablet Pos, Touch Laptop Pos large screen, Laptop Pos = Bring All Devices.

 

Customers say in few words: "- We use Office for Database Product Website can Create & Update Products, for Sales & Marketing, and for Online Order E-commerce, Mobile Order, and Pos. Keep track Sales Data, Manage business better, Operate Efficiency, Self-Order if needed, Pick-up, Delivery. We now reach out customer anywhere, online, mobile, on any devices: Laptop, Tablet, iPad, iPhone, Samsung Phone, Smart Phone, large scale. Office is easy Use & Maintain, affordable Price, no extra Licences, and good Software Quality.
Requirement: - All you need is a Laptop or Tablet, iPad, or just an iPhone, any Smartphone (All demo on Mobile as seen.) run All-in-one Office Software, and Pos Printer. No need expensive Hardware, Software. No need website. Just Info Website, no Database, can't update Info, Photo, Price, Promotion .. cost $699.  " 

- Office is the first product, by Design, that offer Mobile Pos, Mobile Order that doesn't cost a lot of money, make it easy for all kinds of customers to use. Even Vend Pos, 100 millions dollars investment still doesn't offer Mobile Pos, Mobile Order -> Then Who Can? - Almost Pos: PC Pos, iPad Pos. Office least Requirement: iPhone, Pos Printer. Not seen on market.

- When will it happen to a store near you?

NOTE: Office is the first Pos run whole system By Design iPhone, Mobile first.- Others By Design large screen iPad first, called iPad Pos.

- Home Supply continues a big issues. People back in market search for Home very tight supply in market after a year of housing cooling. Currently Housing in Toronto in a situation that is:
More Buyers, but Less Sellers, Less New Home Construction -> Tight in Supply. So need more Home Supply. But doesn't mean Home Price goes down. Look at the Demand Shift Chart: When more Buyers, Demand Shift right from D2 to D1  -> Supply Shift also increase from Q2 to Q1, high Quantity. => The Price Shift from P2 to P1, pushing Price even higher. For example, current Stock driven by Demand Shift, more Buyers -> Stock Price higher, Volume higher, Stock higher.

- Ave Home Price = Ave of Home + Town home + Condos that reflects Up/ Down trends, and a glance at Price of a whole Property Market. For more accuracy, people go deeper into each Districts of Toronto, and GTA Districts around Toronto + And deeper in each Type of Property like: Home, Town home, Condos. Toronto is big = Old Toronto + GTA.
Home Price
depends on: Location, Renovation. A 50K renovation, such as, Open Space Living Room, new Kitchen & Cabinet, modernize & extended Bath Room, extra Bed Room, new hardwood Floor, new Paint, improve Basement like Kitchen, Living room, extra Bed room, Bath room,
could increase Home Value to 65k.

- A Scientist explains: - Home Sales Down or Home Sales Less, but Price Up because of Supply Side = Less home owners want to sell their Homes + Less New Home Construction = Supply Decrease S1 -> S2 -> Shift left. Qty Decrease Q1 -> Q2 = Home Sales down. -> But, Price Up = P1 -> P2. => Thus as long as Less people wants to sell their homes + Less New Home Build (S1 -> S2)  -> Price up (P1 -> P2) even Homes Sales (Q1 -> Q2) Less.


 
Explain another way: - Even Less Buyers -> Home Sales, Quantity Down or Home Sales Less: Q1 -> Q2, because of Housing Regulations + Stress Test to make sure people qualify for Mortgage + Less Sellers -> Supply Down: S1 -> S2 => Price still UP or Stabilizing: P1 -> P2, not Down Trend. 
Because less people want to sell their home. Or something to do with less Housing Supply. Most important @ Supply Side is not just less New Home Construction, but also people don't panic to sell their Home. All you needs is 10% people panic sell their Homes, translates tens of thousands Homes in panic or just abandon sold their homes could collapse Housing Market.

Home or Stock is about Greed & Fear, Supply / Demand.
Stock Price is higher for many years. But People still Buy More. Just like Home. Driven by Greed.
-> Push Stock Price higher. When Stock Down, Home Price Down -> People Driven by Fear -> Sell out -> Stock Price Low, Home Price Low. But doesn't mean more people Buy. People look for exist. -> Stock could be cooling or crash. -> Thus Home Price or Stock Price Down, Lower, Affordable. But doesn't mean to attract more Buyers. The people who want lower Price ( Price Down) don't come in and buy. They want lower and lower. -> When Stock or Home Down, Low, this could cause Home or Stock cooling or collapse or crash. People hesitate to Get in market, less Buyers. People look for exist than Buy, as seen in recent Toronto Housing Cooling, more people dropped, sold their Homes.
For example, last year in Jan, Feb, March, April, 2017, Home Price was Up, High Price -> But a lot people line up Buy Home with multi offer, bidding Price higher than selling price. When Housing Cooling, Home Price Down 25% = Down hundreds of thousands dollars. Down alot. But Home Sales still Down -25% -> -35%, even - 45%. Less Buyers.
-> Why people want Home Price down don't jump in Buy? - Where Home Price Down, Low can satisfy all people? -> No one knows.

Home Price ups, dows, doesn't matter. Nothing gains until you sell your home. People every day work hard for their home, try make ends meet, pay mortgage, pay bills, pay debt.

Author: As scientist, we do research. We don't do research to make people like it or not. Different Scientist has different view just like Politics. Not to judge scientist based on their research.

 


August, 2018 - Home Price just came out as usually early every month, in August 2018 for Toronto Real Estate in July, 2018. Home Sales is up 18.6%. Last year August 2017 down - 40%. Today in August, 2018, Ave Home Price = $837,379 for all types of properties = Home + Town home + Condos. In each category, Condos = $582,547, Town home = $718,698, and record Home Sales. More people come back buying Home. “It appears that some people who initially moved to the sidelines due to the psychological impact of the (Ontario) Fair Housing Plan and changes to mortgage lending guidelines have re-entered the market,” said Jason Mercer, the board’s director of market analysis. A lot of money are lining up, and ready jumping in Housing Market like last year 2017 spring. While Vancouver Home Sales down in July, 2018, Ave Home Price = $1,093,600. The average Home Price of country wide Canada slight increases $546,562 for July, 2018.
Important News:
1) Since January 2018, Home Price ups continuously from Jan = $738,000 -> May = $805,000 -> August, 2018 = $837,379. In May 2018, Home Price break into $800,000 first time, after its cooling started in June 2017. But Home Sales flat. Now, in opposite, Home Price slight high in 3 months May, 2018 -> July, 2018 up only $30,000. But Home Sales up significantly in double digits first time since June 2018. => Read Blog, we said ago:- Do not time the market. Just jump in & Buy. When Home or Stock up/down, up/down very fast. Take Home down bottom 2 months, for Stock maybe few days like Tsunami. => Only the beginning, Toronto Hosing Market now is like a patient just starts recovering after heavy shock. Unlikely another heavy shock until full recovery. Good time buy now or miss it.

2) -
Ave Home Price Gap between GTA ( Area Code Phone 416, closed Downtown) and Downtown Toronto (old Toronto) smaller = $43,000. Many Districts in GTA 416 close, GTA 905 far, like Brampton ... & Suburban 905 further far like Mississauga ... = far away Downtown Toronto (416), price cheaper. It reflects in your Home Phone. High paid jobs in Downtown Toronto, where in Banks, Financial Institutions, Financial Centers of Canada, Government Agencies, who can't afford Home, Rent in Downtown -> So they move to live in GTA (416) closer to work, where Home cheaper than Downtown. Which is pushing Home Price in these areas higher. Toronto has web of Subways underground move people to Downtown, faster than driving to Downtown, parking cost, gas, traffic.

3) - Home Price up
slightly, highest since May, 2017, behind peak April, 2017. But a record Home Sales continues.
-> Home Price will be higher if Cut Taxes that impact on Housing market introduced last year by provincial Fair Housing Plan, and if Amazon setup 2rd Headquarter in Toronto.
What if Amazon move its 2nd Headquarter in Toronto, the biggest City in Canada, the 4th largest City with large Population
(Toronto = Downtown Toronto 2.5 millions + GTA is Greater Area Toronto 4 millions = 6.5 millions) in US & Canada? - Just last May, 2018, Amazon created 3000 Jobs in Vancouver where ave Home Price = 1.1 millions dollars. Recently, a lot of news about Toronto will become the next Silicon Valley in US & Canada, Global Talents, and cheaper hi-tech Labour + cheaper Rent than in US.

Analyze Vancouver Recovering and Toronto:
In Vancouver,
in Aug 2015 =
$708,500 -> Up.. In July, 2016 = $1,007,867. Intro New Housing Policy, Begin Down -> Aug 2016 = $941,100  -> Jan, 2017 = $905,800 = Bottom. Begin Recovering, small increase Feb, March, April, 2017 -> May 2017 =$981,100 -> June 2017 = $1,053,655, in Million range -> Jan 2018 = $1,056,500 -> Aug 2018= $1,090,000.
Important note:- Since in bottom
August, 2016 -> Jan, 2017, Vancouver continued up, no down in range 1 millions up-to-now. Price either Up or Float. Take 1 year to recover from July, 2016 = $1,056,500, Since begin New Housing Plan, begin down in August, 2016 ... May, 2017 = $900s range -> June, 2017 = $1,053,655 back in a millions dollars peak range ... Aug, 2018 = $1,090,000 = flat.
In Toronto, in Aug 2015 = $603,000 diff Vancouver = $100,000 -> in Aug, 2016 = $710,000 -> Jan, 2017 = $730,125 -> up 33% peak April 2017 = $916,867 -> Prev Ontario Introduce New Housing Fair Plan -> Down 20% -> 25% Bottom in August, 2017 = $730,000 -> Jan 2018 = $736,700 -> Begin Recovering, Slowly up, first break in $800,000, in May 2018 = $805,000 ->  Aug 2018 = $837,379. Not yet get back to April,2017 peak = $916,897.

- Since in bottom in Toronto Aug, 2017 = $730,000 -> Jan,2018 = $736,700, = 6 months in bottom, same as in Vancouver = 6 months in bottom August 2016 -> Jan, 2017. Then it begins recovering. Price either Up Small Increase or Flat. Same as Vancouver, since bottom in Jan, 2017 -> Vancouver never look back, Up, Small increase or Flat from Jan, 2017 bottom begin recovering (same Jan, 2018 in Toronto begin recovering) -> up-to-now Aug 2018 = 20 months. So far, in Toronto only 8 months since begin recovering in Jan, 2018 -> Up-to-now, Aug 2018 = 8 months -> Price either Small Increase or Flat -> Expect in July, August 2019, Home Price will be in $900,000s something range. It takes at least 2 1/2 years or 30 months get back its peak in April, 2017 in $900,000s range. 


Home Price like Stock -> Nothing gains until you sell your home. Everyday, people work hard for their home, pay bills, make ends meet, regardless ups/ downs.


July, 2018 - Home Price is already out on in early July 2018 for Real Estate in Toronto in June, 2018. There are signs people back to market, Home sales up 17.6% in June 2018 compared to May,
When at peak ave Home Price April 2017 =
$916,567 = Ave of Home + Town home + Condos. If calculate just Ave Home Price, not including Town Home, Condos, Downtown Toronto there are Home Price = 1.3 -> 1.6 millions, GTA = 1.1 millions -> 1.4 millions dollars. Usually the difference between Downtown and GTA around $100,000, like UK London city difference Downtown and Districts around = $420,000 euro - $350,000 euro = $70,000 euro difference.
- Toronto Home Price has recovered 1/2 its lost. Only Home Price lost, Condos, Town home flat, no lost. A lot of people with a lot of money are
waiting to jump back in Toronto Home still very affordable, like in Jan - May, 2017, people line up with high multi offers. A lot people can't afford Home, complaining, High Rent Control better, or buy Condos.

This Home in North York, New List Aug 2018.
- York University, 3rd largest in Canada in North York. Has most International Student

- North York is North of Toronto,
where Phone's Area Code = (416). Which has same area code in Downtown Toronto, Home Price only a bit smaller than Downtown. Both share same Home Price Ave or Small Difference.
Phone's Area Code = (905), where these Districts in GTA like Brampton, Suburban 905, like Mississauga, far away Toronto, cheaper Home Price, cheaper Ave Home Price.

- TREB = Toronto Real Estate Board used Area Code to Categorize & Statistics Home Price.
 
Scientist asks: Who Can Afford This Home? - A lot in Toronto. Specially, Middle Class already bought Home long time ago. A 20 years middle class can buy 2, 3 x Homes. They easier buy than first time Home Buyer -> They already proved survival as Home Owner more than 15 years.
Harry met Sally, both Middle Class  -> Take sweet Home -> A lot people in Toronto can afford easy.
Calculate
:
- Buy Home = $1,088,000
-> Deposit  20% = $200,000 = The challenge
-> Loan Borrow = $800,000
-> Interest = 3.5% - Amortization (years pay off loan $800,000 & own Home) = 30 yr
Note: 25 years faster, less Interest Payment, but higher monthly mortgage. Investor even pay 40 years -> Reduce alot monthly payment.
=> Mortgage Monthly Pay = $3450
=> Rent out 2nd Floor = $1500 / mo
=> Now
you pay mortgage = $1950 / mo - The more years paid, this payment gradually reduced less to $0.0. Nearly = Rent 1-Bedroom.
=> Rent 3-Bedroom = $2950 -> $3500. Rent 1 Bedroom GTA= 1500$ - Downtown = $2050
=>
Now cheaper than Rent 3 Bedrooms $1000 => Scientist proved this $1,088,000 Home affordable, cheaper than Rent.

- Apply for Condos cheaper than pay RENT. Usually people buy Home cheaper than this Price.

- A 20 years Middle Class can buy 3, or 4 of this home, but huge Debt, huge Interest Payment, huge Risks. Never own Home, no Home to Live. Even just Buy 1 Home is a Risk, such as,
Economy, Lost Job, High Tax, Policy Maker, Bad Tenants, High Mortgage Payment / mo, Pay more for Interest Loan than Pay for Home Principal, Can't 9-5 for 25 years, Work longer, rather few years Done, Enjoy Life, now back on the long road again. Many calculations + Many other Risks of having multiple Homes. Can't show.
- From own 85% one Home -> Own only 20% 3 Homes, 3 Big Mortgage, Work longer on long hardship road again. - Which one more risks, Greed & Fear  vs. Peace of Mind?
-----------------------
- Ave Home Price Residential in North York =
$1.140.822

-
North York is a municipality within the current city of Toronto, Ontario. Geographically, it comprises the Central Part of the Northern section of Toronto.

- York University, 3rd largest in Canada in North York, Toronto, while University Toronto is 1st largest University in Canada in Downtown Toronto.

The Reality of Industrialized Middle Class.

- The only benefit of Middle Class is Home. Home is their " Return On Investment of Life". But there is no easy Home -> You have to work hard for Home 25 years, 9-5 every day to pay for Home. Home sucks in 2/3 of their income. When no Home, you have $1000 to spend for fun, restaurant, drinking, smoking, leisure. But when own Home, that $1000 leisure all in paid for Home Expensive, a lot bills to pay for Home Ownership. Home Ownership is about Responsibility, Saving, Frugality, Hard work. But reward something.

- If lost Income, Middle Class used their Credit Card pay for Living Expensive. Can't apply for benefits. If own no Home, lost income, people can apply for Social Welfare, Basic Income. Basic Income will give an adult, without big asset like Home, an income around $17,000 $ / years. Some say $1415/ mo is generous. After Rent / Room = $415 /mo / person, $1000 / mo for one person spending, more than a middle class's spending after pay for Mortgage. This program is testing few areas not yet official in Toronto and in Ontario, by previous Government. For now, Social Assistant (welfare). A lot benefit programs help people not own Home. Each year, Social Assistant increased 3% to adjust inflation.

NOTE: People, who don't have asset like home, will have more or less Income / month helped by Government. But, Middle Class, Home Owner will not qualify for Social Assistant, Basic Income. Middle Class with a lot Home bills, mid income, low income, lost income -> Use Credit Card, Borrow, Sell Home and spend all your Home money. Although contributed a lot of taxes. That's why Middle Class needs job, the only source of income.

- Industrialized Middle Class Households debt is high, because of Mortgage Payment + Home bills. A person around 20 years Toronto Middle Class said: "- It is tough in big city, not easy. A lot people dropped out middle class after 10 years. Home Price up made people jealousy. But hope not. People understand that All is about Hard work & Reward. "
- Middle Class pay a lot taxes, Income Tax, and Property Tax is main Revenue for local Municipal City to pay for all kinds of Local Services. On average a Middle Class or a Couple contributed $250,000 Taxes in 10 years, 1/2 millions in 20 years.

- Home like Stock, Home Price up/ down, but nothing gains until sell your Home.

=> Scientist used Data Communication reflect the the reality, which could be good or bad, like it or not, not mouth, tongue. Scientist , like Doctor, can't change Data make look good, like it. The majority people make decision, judgment based on Emotional Intelligence easier (hate, like, love, fun, feeling love or hate for something, desire, empathy, subconscious).
=> Since Human Evolution is evolving on
Emotional Intelligence basic instinct, for survival thousands years . But, then Technology, Digital have changed Human Evolution evolving on Data Intelligence. People smarter!

For example: - Love is Emotional Intelligence. When love people don't think, don't care, but love. All is about feeling, desire for now, at the moment. But then after marriage, feeling is gone, the reality comes.
All is about Data Intelligence for next 20 years: Rent, Car, Home, Children, Shopping, Living Expensive.

Can we use Data measure Human Emotion? -> A Computer Scientist said: - No. No Data can measure Human Emotion. Very complex, unpredictable. We can design Robot, AI, Software do, work like Human, replace Human. But we can't design Robot, AI, Software ... have feeling, sense, hate, love like Human.

You run Start-up -> Become multi millionaire, multi Homes, no 25 years. Most people, started working in mid 90s, had Home around 10 years ago, in 2008, ave = $450,000, or from day Graduate to day to buy Home, because they must Work & Pay Debt & Save at least 10 years - 15 years just for a big Deposit = $90,000. Today harder, Home up, graduated in 2005, Work hard & Save, probably you can buy Home Price in 2020, deposit = 20% = After paid all Living Expensive, Income Tax, Car ... you must save $55,000 in 5 years.

Start-ups easier said than done.
Choose the right person with the right Mind-set, right Skill, and most important Think Big, Global, Have Vision, not afraid of Competition, Persistence, no easy Give Up. A lot Start-up Entrepreneurs just a year gave up when a lot challenging. DONE! They think easy make millions. Even people work hard 25 y / 9-5 hardly make ends meet.
Take chance. Make rich faster than 25 year / 9-5 still hardly Make ends Meet

When having Multi Homes is good?
When early in the beginning on the road, you are in late 20s, early 30s. When young, people Have Fun rather Have Something soon until mid 30s.
You think can afford multi homes, should have Good Deposit at least 25% to reduce time pay off Home faster, help reduce Interest Payment, help reduce monthly Mortgage. You need
good high pay salary job, such as, Professor, Doctor, high pay Scientist, and can keep high pay jobs for a long time in 25 years. Then you buy 2 Homes, walk 25 years on the road, you are on Top Mountain multi homes.
---------------------
Having Multi Homes or One Home to Live?
A 20 years Middle Class can buy at least 3 Homes. Each over 1 millions dollars.

One Home to Live
is better than having many Homes,
but not own Home, keep working harder, suffering,
longer looong road, high risks along the road, All Money pay for more Interest Payment / Home, specially when Interest Rate up, pay more Mortgage / home, hard & long reach @ Top mountain. One Home owns 85% much better than split into 3 Homes, but own only 20%, less than 50%. It's Bank's Home. Not true Millionaire. Work hard 9-5, 25 years to Top, own Home 100%. Now, slit into 3 Home only 20% -> Walk 25 years again? (:(( - No.

So the Goal here
is Reach to the Top of Mountain soon, when still young. Just 1 Home
then Enjoy Life, Travel and Become true Industrialized Millionaire. While others still walk hard to the Top Mountain, still not sure reach @ Top.

-> Why big Home less Value than small Home? - Home is a Product but Values in its Services (Location). Explain why people move Rural to City. Why Rich Middle Class, Rich people are created in big City.


- The Millennial and Home Ownership today.


- Millennial mobile, no 25 year / 9-5 responsibility, freedom.
-
Millennial, 22 - 37, less likely want to Buy Home because of their Life Style, mobile, not Saving for Home.
- The Challenge for
Millennial is the Deposit. Take at least 13 years Saving of Hundreds of thousands dollars. By that time, you are not Millennia.
- The other Challenge is Job security, keep changing. Bought Home only few years, lost Job.

- Today, to afford for a Home in Toronto, Vancouver need salary at least
$85,000 salary. No matter Home Price goes Down. See here What Salary Needed to Buy Home in US Cities. US Capital Washington, Ave Home = $383,000 -> Salary needed = $82,500.

So Who most likely Buy Home?
-> It is the Middle Class high Income at least $80,000, 2 x Middle Class Couple, Middle Class Home Owners, who already had Advantages and Capital. 


-> Working Class, no matter Home Price down, they hardly can afford, even a Condos
. Rent Affordability better for them.

-> Current Housing cooling, Home Price, (now has recovered 1/2 its lost.), doesn't translate more people buy home, even less Buyers. People want Home Price down, don't jump in. But more people sell Home, dropped. But when Ave Home Price high like in April 2017, more Buyers line up, multi offers? -> WHY?



 

-> Data Scientist, use Data, give people see differently in context of Local & Global. Data Intelligence. See far.

While ave Condo Prise is $562,000, flat. Ave Townhouse is: $639,000, flat. Ave Condos at peak April 2017 =  $ 518,579. A lot new built Condos unsold in Downtown, a lot supply for Condos than Home  -> As a result Condos price is flat since its peak. But the demand for Home is now up 17.6%. -> In Real Estate, All types of Home is most expensive -> Town home -> Condos. People have money will refer buy Home to Condos for big return. => In 2000 ave Condos Price = $180,000, ave Home Price = $240,000. Today, ave Condos = $560,000. While ave Home = $807,000. -> Profit diff = $200,000. => 18 years ago, Condos Price was different with Home Price about $60,000 - $80,000. Today, the difference wider is about $250,000 - $300,000 ($560,000 vs. $808,000). At peak April, 2017, difference was $350,000, even $500,000. Data tells Home Price goes up faster. Property likes car, different car for different people. All is about Data.

- A person lived in Condos Apt and Home said:- Live in Condos no privacy, under tight security, camera, backgrounds check, watch people in/out from Condos Management. Up/ down in elevator many times / day with strangers. Ups/Downs in Parking lot not safe, a lot strangers, all kinds of people. A lot noise from top floor, a lot smell. Your kids throw things on floor could cause tension with other tenants. In Toronto, Condos Apt 1-bed room = 1500$ / mo, Downtown = 2000$ /mo, not include Internet, wash/ dry cloths, could cost extra 150$ / mo. People can smell others smoking in isolate environment. No freedom like Home. A lot stories like husband & wife argue, Tenants next door call police. Rent can increase anytime. Can't Rent out extra income Condos like Home in 2nd Floor. Can't renovate Condos. The convenience of Condos is no need shuffle snow. Immigrants, new Comers likely live in condos. => Live in 2nd Floor Home 800$ / mo -> Will save rent 10,000$ / year, 5 years = $50,000, 10 years = $100,000 -> A lot of money! Could buy a new Condos. Invest in Child's Education and Saving for raining days, no job.

Jason Mercer, TREB's Director of Market Analysis and Service Channels said: " ... It is likely that issues surrounding the supply of listings will persist. This suggests that competition between buyers could increase, exerting increased upward pressure on home prices." -> Which is exactly we have predicted in May, 2018 that Home Price is steady or up because of Supply. -> But even if spend billions to build new 50,000 Home, take at least 5 years, it is not much affect, to hold down the Home Price. People build more Condos easy sell than build Home. See May, 2018 our Analyze.
- Last time when Toronto ave Home Price either same or more than Vancouver was in February, March, April, May 2017. Vancouver like Toronto was started cooling down in August, 2016 (Toronto started cooling in June, 2017), because Housing Regulation like in Toronto. When ave Toronto Home Price = $807,000 = Ave of all types of Properties in Toronto =  Homes + Town Home + Condos.

- A person said:- Every month I visit this Blog because I am interested and open my knowledge about Home, Real Estate. If I read this Blog many years ago, which will make my life big difference.

A person said:- Before, we could have bought Home easily. No Home because of listening to bad advice, surrounding with people, who just want others like them. For example, you play, surround with people who have Home, more likely you will buy home because of competition. Now wake in the reality, after we work hard for 10 years, 25 years, more than 1/2 Income paid for Rent. Can't stop Rent always up in big City. Money is the main cause of broken family, relationship. The first 2 years is Honey (Emotional Intelligence). The next 20 years is Money (Data Intelligence).
Where you live also make a big difference.
What happens in big City China could happen in any big Industrialized City. A person came Vancouver 25 years ago with 0.0$. Today, he is worth a millions dollars because he bought a Home in Vancouver. What if he lives in other Cities, small Town? - Most Cities in Canada ave Home Price 490,000$, except Toronto, Vancouver.

A Scientist said: " - Good Athletics gather in Olympics, not in Local games. The best companies run like Olympics." -> Which describes Toronto is tough - Tough here means you play in Olympics Games with other Global Talents, not in Local Games play with same people, same ideas. People refer to working with people like them, in their own Group, same Ethnics, but not in Toronto. Everywhere, in School, at Work, in Office, in Public places, I see all kinds of different people in different Backgrounds. Before I lived fit comfortable in my own Local, until I live in Global Toronto, the only multi-culture Global City, where different people and backgrounds live & work to build the best City in the world.
Look at Toronto Ave Home Price

the best indicator describes Toronto that why people are willing to spend, invest that much money to Live in Toronto, like to buy a hot Product & Service, buy a hot Place, like to buy a hot Stock Price. Its ave Home Price has more than New York City, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Washington, Ottawa, UK London. And Toronto Home Price has been hot, grow in the past 30 years. So does the City.
