It’s National Real Estate Day (May 17) and realtors in Toronto are making the most of the opportunity to shout about the industry and the benefits of homeownership.

Toronto Real Estate Board president Mark McLean’s appearance on Breakfast Television at 6.20am begins the day by talking about the positive effects that buying a home can have: “Home ownership is a great investment. It’s a straightforward way to build a solid financial future, and it’s also the only investment you can live in.”

The marketing initiative will also include a Twitter chat at noon using the hashtag #iheartrealestate.
