Will Climate Change Affect The London Ontario Real Estate Market?

London’s hottest and coolest neighbourhoods

A series of maps, created by a team of researchers at Western University, charts which neighbourhoods in London, Ont., are most at-risk during extreme heat events and, according to the creators, can be used by civic planners as an invaluable tool for building a cooler city in a warming world. 

Climate change is making the world hotter and understanding its effects, from intensifying rainstorms and flooding, to wildfires and droughts — even how it affects our own bodies — is crucial to adapting our communities.

The maps, which are being made public for the first time by CBC News, lay bare the inequalities among the city’s neighbourhoods when it comes to cool haves and the hot, have-nots, according to James Voogt, a professor in the department of geography at Western University who studies how cities affect temperature and climate.

“Heat is a hazard and cool is a resource if you’re thinking about the summer,” he said. “We want to know where your hazards exist and where your resources exist.”

"Not All Realtors Are The Same"! This website and content are for you and are designed and constantly upgraded with the latest real estate trends, how-to’s and what is for sale on MLS. All the so-called Gurus of marketing and branding say a Realtor and their Brokerage should have a bio to let people know about them. I have always felt bios were boasting, bragging, or trying to impress readers; I’ve always felt that our actions and results should impress and not be all talk and no action! As they say in Texas:” All hat and no cattle”! So here goes: We are a small brokerage by choice. Our primary focus is guiding home buyers and sellers to make good decisions. We believe selling real estate is a process, not an event or knee-jerk reaction; we sleep well at night and ensure our clients do as well! We are not for everybody, nor can we please everybody, nor do we tell people what they want to hear; I know that may be old-fashioned and boring but we are dealing with hundreds of your hard-earned money. Would you rather be happy, excited and bored or unhappy, excited and make a poor choice? About Ty Founder & Owner, & Broker of Record of Sutton Group Envelope Real Estate Inc., That's all I can say about me! You see, this is about you, not me; you do not want to hear blah blah stuff about awards, designations, or that we walk older adults across the street (I used to help old ladies cross the street, but as I got older I did not want my wife to think I was flirting) the reincarnation of Mother Teresa, walk on water or anything else to impress you. We let the numbers speak for themselves; success leaves clues!
