Climate Risk

Understand how climate risk affects your home

The Fox Team is passionate about understanding how climate risk and change affects property owners, and passing on this important knowledge to our clients. In Toronto and the GTA, one of the biggest climate risk factors is flooding, followed by extreme wind and rain events.

To help bring these issues to the forefront, Alexandra founded a sub-committee at the Toronto Real Estate Board that’s exclusively focused on climate risk and how it affects the real estate market. Through this committee she’s working to educate both real estate professionals and homeowners on how climate risk impacts their home and their investment.

Is your home at risk?

Most buyers and sellers aren’t aware whether their Toronto property is in a floodplain. More so, most don’t even realize that floodplains and the risk of flooding is something they should be concerned about. In Toronto specifically, many homes are located in floodplains and are at risk of losing insurability and potentially even value, should a flooding event occur. Find out if your home resides in a floodplain to understand how susceptible your home is to flooding.
