Home Equity Line of Credit & More


'Your home equity line of credit gives you the flexibilty to pay as little as interest only, if that's necessary for you. How and when you choose to repay your balance is up to you. As you pay off your outstanding balance, your available credit increases. It's always important, though, to increase your payments when you can to ensure that you are paying down your balance responsibly.

Credit Wise Tip: Pay more than just your minimum payment - any extra payment will go towards your outstanding principal balance. Whether it's a one-time payment or increased monthly payments, you will save on interest costs.'

From: The Mobile Mortgage Specialist TD Canada Trust

Your line of credit provides you with the opportunity to use the EQUITY in your home for improvements such as new carpeting, new paint or even that new kitchen you have been wanting.

 



What is Curb Appeal


Curb Appeal is the attractiveness of your home from the street. Studies show that most Buyers will not view the interior of a home if they do not like the exterior. The exterior appeal is critical from a marketing point of view. It sets the tone for the entire home.The exterior needs to be inviting.

Stand across the street and take a look with a critical eye. Do this in the morning and in the evening. Change the exterior colour if it is dated. Swap out old light fixtures, house address numbers or mailboxes. Polish or change the front door handle and knocker.

Look at your yard from the Buyers eyes. Trim, mow or edge the lawn. Give overgrown trees and bushes a trim. Find a home for hoses, sprinklers, trash cans or toys. Place seasonal, colourful and fresh plants at the entrance.

Next, install lighting along your sidewalk or driveway!



The Calgary Economy


According to RBC Economics Research, "A strong provincial economy, solid labour market, fast-rising population, and attractive affordability continue to fuel demand for Calgary Housing," said the bank's latest Housing Trends and Affordabiliby Report.

Go Calgary! Yes, we are definitely OPEN!



Home Improvements


Flooring: Upgrade from carpet & lino to Hardwood.

Kitchens: Open concepts & modern colors are key. Refinish existing cabinets & replace countertops.

Bathrooms: Same as the kitchen. Modern looking tile & a pedestal sink frees up room and makes a big difference.

Paint: Inside & out; go for neutral colors.

Floor Plan Alteration: Open concept. A large master bedroom and a spare may work better than 3 small bedrooms.

Professional Basement Development: Leave it to the pros!
