Life Insurance v.s Mortgage Insurance - 10/29/10 12:22 PM
Many people don't realize it, but there are better options out there when it comes to insuring your home, then what the lender offers. You not only want to make sure that your home is protected in the event something should happen to you, but your familiy is taken care of as well. There are more options out there that offer lower costs and greater flexibilty. Here are some of the differences... Another key thing to remember when faced with the decision to get mortgage insurance or life insurance is that all life insurnace policies are underwritten prior to the insurer approving your application.

Low Rates a Plus - 10/18/10 04:51 PM
It is nice to read that real estate sales have risen since last month. But take a look at the comments on this article, the author of the first comment does make a few good points as to why people could be hesitant to get into the real estate market. http://www.financialpost.com/news/rates+bail+housing/3679749/story.html#ixzz12i6nm2z1 (0 comments)
Mortgage Insurance - 10/13/10 02:33 PM
I thought this article was interesting...it sheds some light on mortgage insurancce industry. It provides some education on what mortgage insurance is and which mortgage insurers are out there. Summarizing a bit, right now CMHC is the major player, government backed, while Genworth and AIG are in the private sector, and now there is a new insurer in the ring. Even though the government has been setting stricter mortgage guidelines, the article brings up a good point that with another mortgage insurer coming into play, it might bode well for consumers. http://www.financialpost.com/news/Mortgage+insurance+market+heating/3559725/story.html
