TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/18/14 -- Toronto Real Estate Board President Paul Etherington announced that Greater Toronto REALTORS® reported 7,342 rental transactions through the TorontoMLS system in the second quarter of 2014. This result was up by 25.7 per cent compared to Q2 2013. The number of units listed for rent in the second quarter was up by 22.2 per cent on a year-over-year basis to 12,510.
"Condominium apartments rented out by investors represent an important component of the overall rental pool in the Greater Toronto Area. These units account for the majority of newly completed apartments listed for rent in the marketplace today. Renters looking for apartments located in popular neighbourhoods with up-to-date designs and modern finishes are increasingly renting investor-owned units. This is why the number of rental transactions continued to increase last quarter," said Mr. Etherington.
Average rents for popular one-bedroom and two-bedroom unit types dipped slightly on a year-over-year basis. The average one- bedroom rent in Q2 2014 was $1,583; the average two-bedroom rent was $2,142.
"Last quarter we saw stronger growth in the number of units rented relative to the number of units listed. This suggests that competition between renters increased. If this trend continues, we will likely experience renewed growth in average rents in the second half of 2014," said Jason Mercer, TREB's Senior Manager of Market Analysis.

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
