Mortgage rule changes for Self-Employed Canadians

Well, I say, it's about time.  So many self-employed Canadians get raked over the coals to prove themselves worthy just to buy a home to live in.  The powers that be must have finally taken notice that we self-employed make up a very decent % of the population who contribute to the growth of this country and deserve to be treated a bit more fairly when it comes to getting financial backing to purchase a home.

Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation is to give lenders more guidance and flexibility to help self-employed homeowners.

Cannabis Act and Real Estate...

A thought-provoking article from a lawyer friend of mine.  Enjoy the read.


 What are your thoughts?  Mine? Here is my 2 cents...for what it's worth.

Is The Market Revealing Itself?

Waiting and wondering have been the game over the past several months, when we talk about the real estate market. During my open house this weekend, one of many around town, I did not have to wait. It was a very active open house. The most active that I have seen since Spring 2017, the time marked as ‘insanely crazy’ by most of us. 

Market news: Open House Sunday, October 22nd

Come and view 2980 Old Homestead Road during our open house this coming Sunday between 1-3pm.  The leaves are changing, fall colours are everywhere at this place.  The market news is that buyers are feeling the confidence again. The perfect home for a large family, an extended family or a new family starting out.  Space, inside and out...lots a parking, quiet, peaceful and yet, only minutes to the 404 highway.  The best of both worlds.

Georgina Real Estate This Week...

Good sunny afternoon,

It has been a slow pace crawl from the craziness of the first 4.5 months of 2017.  It is quite interesting to watch the activity from a week to week basis, and it does reveal the little changes that are not so noticeable when we review things on a monthly basis.

Georgina Real Estate This Week...

Good Wednesday morning.  In reviewing this past week's Georgina Real Estate market activity in our humble town, I am starting to see a bit of change.  I did hear that the Bank of Canada increased interest rates, however, as they have been so extremely low, at this point, this should not affect borrowers to strongly. The media, well, that's a different animal all together.  The posting of doom and gloom is ridiculous...I guess negativity is better news than anything positive.

Georgina Real Estate This Week...

Good Wednesday afternoon.  While I sit here, under an umbrella, enjoying a lovely summer day, I get to review this pass week's Georgina Real Estate's market activity in our humble town.  The weekend brought lots of fireworks and fun family activity as we celebrate Canada's 150th birthday...although I am certain most of our natives (myself included) will say that we are much older than 150 years...regardless, I am proud to be a part of it, and proud to be Canadian.

Let's jump into work for a bit:

Georgina Real Estate This Week...

It is good to see that there are a few, slight, positive changes starting to happen in the market that have been noted from last week's activity.

This week in the Georgina's Real Estate Market

Keswick - this week, we are seeing properties being on the market basically 10 days longer with the weekly sales quantities declining even more over previous weeks. There were only 4 sales in Keswick this past week, however, 2 of which were actually over asking (one is questionable, lol). The new listings that have come out this week is similar to last week's quantity and again, less than previous weeks.

OPEN HOUSE - 50 Verona Crescent, Keswick

Saturday, June 17th, 1-3pm, we will host a public open house of 50 Verona Crescent.  You will be impressed with the area, the neighborhood and the property. Excellent size for a family and the yard is awesome with a large entertainment deck and above ground pool.  Boasts near 2000sf of space plus a full, finished basement, you will be awed at the layout and space.  Come by, say hi, and take a tour.
