mortgages: August Already? - 08/01/13 09:54 AM
We can all feel it, can’t we?  As soon as we turn the page on our calendars to August, we know that there isn’t much left of summer so we try to squeeze in as much time outdoors as we can.  We don’t want to think about anything but how much more summer we can get before we start to change our wardrobes and our schedules.  In my neighbourhood, I see excitement starting for the little ones as they think that school is just about to start and they get to wear new clothes and use those clean books and sharp … (2 comments)

mortgages: Mortgages: Bank vs Mortgage Broker - 04/07/11 02:02 PM
When meeting with a client for the first time, I try to gather as much information about the buyers as I can while keeping the buyers as comfortable as possible. We have to discuss finances. Not a comfortable subject when you don't know eachother. It is very important to get your finances in order as you start your journey into home purchase. The more information that you can gather, the easier your journey will become. One of the mortgage broker's that I have recommended in the past has provided some information that might be useful to you. Read on and make … (2 comments)

mortgages: Home Alone? Not Anymore! - 07/26/10 02:42 PM
Home alone - not anymore. Your adult child is back. Is It Time To Downsize?Call ‘em Boomerang Kids or KIPPERS (Kids In Parents' Pockets Eroding Retirement Savings) - but by any name, the number of adult children living with their parents is on the rise. And for Boomers, that can be a double whammy because many are being sandwiched between caring for their adult children and for their aging parents.A recent survey of Boomers revealed that four-in-ten who care for both children and parents say they have been forced to reduce the amount they're investing for retirement, one-quarter say they have … (2 comments)

mortgages: Mortgage Rates Update - 07/21/10 01:41 PM
By now we have all heard that the Bank of Canada has raised the interest rate another quarter point. It was in the paper early this morning. The prediction is that it will go up some more by the end of the year.As I have been telling my buyers, this is an opportune time to purchase a home and still get a great interest rate. Do this before rates go up some more. There are plenty of homes on the market so there is choice. With many enjoying the holiday season and all the activities that come with the summer, it … (0 comments)

Great news in the Toronto Star this morning, March 12th 2009 -- First Time buyers eye house bargains by Tony Wong. He states that, "If there is an upside to a recession, it's the inevitability that stuff gets cheaper. Falling home prices may be hard on developers, but they can spark opportunity for first-time buyers -- if the price is right". I have said this all along, Buyers are skittish and are waiting for prices and interest rates to go down.Well, prices are reasonable with still more deals to be made, and interest rates could not be lower.Then, we get a … (0 comments)

There was a fresh line reported in the Toronto Sun by Stephen Dupuis. It stated, "A new year, a fresh start". This is so positive, that I would like to share this with everyone.The second half of 2008 is part of a year that we all would like to forget. Let's hope this year is a little less exciting, hope that there is a lot less negativity in relation to real estate news. The comparison between what is happening in the U.S. housing market and a projected similar outcome for Canada has been blogged and reported to death. At one point, … (0 comments)

mortgages: Buyers Are No Longer Waiting but are on Strike - 11/22/08 11:20 AM
Many have read the Toronto Star this morning and the big headline in the Business Section: "Home Buyers Play Waiting Game". There is a lot of truth to this statement. I hear it all the time from buyers and from sellers.I have done many open houses in the last few months and have seen lots of traffic, also, but these visitors seem to want to wait and see what happens. Buyers are waiting for prices to come down even further, and sellers are panicking because the listings are not selling as quickly as they were at the beginning of the year. … (1 comments)
