US, A Model to Canada Mortgage Industry - 01/21/07 11:22 AM
Richmond, British Columbia, Canada - This is the second part of the article I've written in my last post: "First Step to Owning a Home in BC, Get Pre-Approved!" Dominion Lending Centres in Canada had released through DLC News, an interesting article on mortgage which tackles about how mortgage industry in the US and Canada are doing and what the US mortgage brokerage business success meant to the Canadian public. The United States mortgage industry and public in general, can take pride in knowing that about eighty five percent (85%) of all mortgages are processed through a mortgage broker. This indicates that majority of the homeowners and buyers are educated enough about the (0 comments)
First Step to Owning a Home in BC, Get Pre-Approved! - 01/21/07 09:33 AM
Richmond, British Columbia, Canada - The first-time home buyers are almost always enthusiastic and excited about the fact that perhaps by viewing different homes or hopping from one house to another, could be a good start to having an idea what sort of home they can invest or live in. I don't have anything against this step. After all, there may be some people who could afford to put down a good and substantial initial outlay on the property they are buying. I guess, the idea here is, as long as you are doing financial self-assessment, you know where you are at and what your options are. However, (3 comments)

BC Home Sellers Info - Why Seek an Advice - 01/02/07 08:40 PM
Richmond, British Columbia, Canada - Home selling could be as rewarding as home owning. However, reasons and decision-factors vary. When you own a property, some of the significant motivations for buying are: pride of ownership, investment value through equity and freedom from dealing with landlords. While some of the reasons for putting your home on the market could be: relocation or move, availing funds through equity or change in marital status. Of course, other personal reasons may exist. Apparently many people find home selling to be a critical, tedious, long process to go through. It may be a difficult territory as there are certain questions to ask that one (0 comments)

Have a Fruitful 2007! - 01/01/07 01:04 PM
Richmond, British Columbia, Canada - Let me join everyone in welcoming the year 2007! It's the first day of the brand new year. I recall one striking mind principle which goes like:"We are what we think we are...Whatever we have accomplished so far is a product of our thoughts in the past."

I have always believed on the power of positive thinking which should be the very foundation of how we live our life, pesonally and professionally. It is what we do affirmatively with any possible setback that come our (4 comments)
