Why It’s Great to Have a Home with a Double Car Garage

Why It’s Great to Have a Home with a Double Car Garage

 
Greetings, and welcome to WRX Property Group’s website and blog! Today, we’ll be starting out with a simple math problem: which is greater, one or two? I’ll give you a moment to reflect and consider the answer.
 
I suspect you decided that two is greater than one. I’d like to talk to you about double car garages: what varieties they come in and why they’re worth having. Some people believe that a two car garage is merely for those people who own more than one car.
 
By the end of this article, though, hopefully we’ll have convinced you that while, yes, people with more than one car certainly stand to benefit from a two car garage, we firmly believe that just about anyone can benefit from a two car garage (the property value stands to benefit, too!).

Why It’s Great to Have a Home with a Triple Car Garage

Why It’s Great to Have a Home with a Triple Car Garage

 
Hello, and welcome to WRX Property Group’s website and blog! As always, please feel free to look around at the real estate listings available through our website; there are many homes for sale throughout Kitchener-Waterloo, Cambridge, and Guelph.
 
But if you’re in the mood for something a little more specific, then we’ve got a special treat for you. Back by popular demand, it’s the WRX Property Group Garage extravaganza!
 
Last week, we used a simple math problem (which is greater, one or two?) as a springboard into a broader conversation about life, poetry, and garages (well, not so much poetry). The conclusion we arrived at can be summarized as follows: two car garages are great.
 
And they’re not just great for people, households, or families with two vehicles; no, double car garages are great for just about everyone. I believe the words I used were, “You’re really only limited by your imagination when it comes to how to use a two car garage,” and I stand by those words to this day (it is my deepest conviction).
 
Brace yourselves, though, because I’m about to throw another math problem your way: which is greater, two… or three? If you thought the fun stopped at a two car garage, prepare to be delighted. Because today, we’re going to talk about three car garages.

University of Waterloo

University of Waterloo

 
Hello, and welcome to the WRX Property Group website and blog! We’ve been discussing the three major post-secondary institutions available in Kitchener-Waterloo over the past three days (so far, we’ve covered Conestoga College and Wilfrid Laurier University).
 
Today, we move onto the final university of our series: the University of Waterloo (UW). In many ways, the success of UW is tied up with the success with Kitchener-Waterloo as a whole; things like Velocity (UW’s official startup and entrepreneurial program, which runs a large office out of downtown Kitchener’s innovative Tannery District, in addition to on-campus facilities) mean UW is a major contributor to Kitchener-Waterloo’s economy, and a major reason why many choose to call the Region home.
 
So let’s check out UW, and all the things that make it great!

The Westhill by Sifton

 
A very warm welcome to the WRX Property Group website and blog! Over the past couple weeks, we’ve covered several retirement communities throughout Kitchener-Waterloo (and in the case of the Morningside Retirement Community, just outside of Kitchener-Waterloo).
 
Today, we’ll be looking at one of western Waterloo’s finest retirement communities: the Westhill by Sifton. Sifton is a longstanding Canadian property development company, which started along the path of real-estate innovation back in 1923 with Harry Sifton at the helm.
 
Sifton Properties Limited has eight retirement living properties throughout southern Ontario (with two in Waterloo), and the Westhill is one of its best: like each of Sifton’s Retirement Living properties, it’s focused on “the highest quality wellness services, dining experiences and engaging social events and activities” (Sifton).
 
Let’s take a look!
