  • Staying On Budget After Refinancing

    budgeting tips


    Life is full of expenses: new car, mortgage, and schooling. And how do you afford this? Borrow, borrow, borrow – right? Well, maybe not always. If you have created a budget you know exactly what you have coming in and going out each month. You’ve set aside a little extra for those unplanned expenses and retirement. If you haven’t created a budget you likely don’t have a very good understanding of your finances… this is the behaviour that leads to overextending and consumer debt.

  • The Importance of a Mortgage Pre-Approval

    Purchasing a home is an exciting life decision. For most Canadians their home is their largest asset. There is more to a home than just a mortgage payment, and being pre-approved will ensure that you’ve taken into account all of the extras that home ownership entails.

    Often times people get caught up in the excitement of purchasing a home that they forget to determine what they qualify for. Qualifying for a mortgage is an easy and essential step to ensure that you are looking in the right direction. Over extending your finances will leave you mortgage poor and unable to accommodate life’s unforeseen expenses.

    Ahh, the sweet sounds of summer are back: nail guns, power saws, digging and demolishing. Ok, they’re not exactly sweet sounds, but they are certainly familiar to anyone who lives in Canadian suburbia.  With reports of real estate prices being instable and fluctuating, it seems that everyone is running to the hardware stores to spruce up their homes in hopes to increase their property values.
