As REALTORS® we know what people value most in a home and a community. It's part of our job. Our clients talk to us about those values every day.
Quality of Life is an approach that local real estate boards, associations and individual REALTORS® have adopted to demonstrate the commitment of the real estate profession to improve Quality of Life throughout the province of Ontario.
Quality of life is based on five principles:
- Protecting economic vitality
One key to Quality of Life is a strong economy. A vibrant economy creates jobs, expands the taxbase and revitalizes communities.
- Providing housing opportunities
We all want a safe, decent and affordable range of housing near where we work, shop and play. We must grow the supply of housing – including choices about design, cost and location.
- Preserving our environment
REALTORS® recognize one of the most important elements of Quality of Life is the environment: clean air and water, parks and open space.
- Protecting property owners
A strong economy depends on preserving the investment people have made in their homes by protecting the ability to freely own, use, buy and sell real property.
- Building better communities
Better communities come when governments work together to fund infrastructures such as roads, water, schools and transit that are the framework for a community’s Quality of Life.
The goal of the quality of life philosophy is to enable people to get what they value most: jobs, homes and better communities.
