Know Your Options

Life has a habit of throwing unexpected twists at us when we least expect them. While none of us should live our lives in a constant state of worry, it’s important to know that, should financial troubles from the loss of a job or other unexpected situations strike, you can count on the advice of your mortgage broker to see you through it.

Life changes involving illness, change of work status or change of marital status can affect your ability to make your mortgage payments, so if you anticipate a change in any of these things please call to discuss your payment options as soon as possible.

If you have to default on a payment, lenders can sometimes grant you temporary payment relief and give you options for a repayment plan, depending on the situation. Mortgagors with a good payment record can often work out a temporary agreement that will allow them to make reduced payments for a specified period of time.

Remember, lenders do not want you to default on your mortgage any more than you do. It is in everyone’s best interest for you to demonstrate good financial discipline when times are good, so you have the best chance of full cooperation from your lender if you ever run into difficulty.

Please call me if you anticipate needing a “Plan B” for your loan obligations!

Fitting Into Today’s Housing Market

Today’s ever-rising real estate prices often mean one of two things for buyers — they must either increase their budget, or downsize their housing expectations.

The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) reports that the construction of single-detached homes fell between 2012 and 2016. The lower inventory, coupled with increased demand, resulted in a rise in prices for this housing type. In many cases the result is that buyers who initially planned for a single-family house will be settling into condos, while some would-be condo buyers may have to reassess how to fit their lives into even more compact footage.

Looking at condo construction, the CMHC notes that although there might be a slight decline in condo starts this year, there will be a rebound in condo construction next year due to increased demand for more affordable housing.

In the meantime, residents moving into more “cozy” condos need to be creative about how they fit into their smaller spaces. Luckily, furniture manufacturers are responding to the demand for space-efficient solutions and designing options specifically for today’s condos. Furniture that flips up, slides out and folds down can now be cleverly concealed to fit into any space.

Don’t automatically dismiss a condo with great features, a reasonable price and other plusses because you think it’s too small. Today’s options make it easier than ever to complete your condo with clever space solutions that fit all your needs!

Call today to find out about the many condo configurations available in today’s market.

Is Your Home Affecting Your Health?

Your home is a safe haven. But, there are ways your home can damage your health.

A healthy home is a happy home. What do we mean? Well, did you know about these seven home hazards that could be affecting your health? Not to worry, our friends at Home Advisor tackle how to identify them as well as how to fix them.

#1 Mold, fungus and mildew

Aside from their smell and unsightly nature, mold, fungus and mildew can pose a serious threat to your health. If you notice any signs of these hazards (especially mold and mildew), have them removed immediately.

#2 Water-borne pollutants

Public water supplies are generally kept to a very high standard. But, it’s impossible to eliminate all water contaminants. If there is a failure in any part of your purification system, your water supply could contain dangerous pollutants. Replace your purification system to ensure your water is clean.

#3 Carbon monoxide

In sufficient quantities, carbon monoxide can kill. Carbon monoxide is difficult to detect because of its odorless and colorless nature. Address any carbon monoxide problems by ventilating your impacted space. For a long-term solution, consider installing a carbon monoxide detector.

#4 Lead

Lead causes memory loss, muscular issues and dementia. Make sure to check your paint and plumbing for lead if your home was built before 1975. If you find lead in your home, have it removed immediately.

#5 Home chemicals

Most of us have potentially harmful chemicals in our homes. These include:

  • Detergents
  • Cleaning agents
  • Bleach
  • Nail polish
  • Pesticides

Most of these substances can be replaced by safer, organic products. If not, keep your toxic chemicals out of reach of children and pets.

#6 Dust

Dust can irritate your respiratory tract. Clean any obvious dust using a damp cloth or an electrostatic wipe. Regularly vacuum curtains, upholstery and carpets. Make sure you use a HEPA filter in your vacuum cleaner. Less efficient filters allow too much dust to escape back into a room.

#7 Dampness and leaks

Moisture encourages the growth of molds and other harmful microorganisms. Eliminate any leaks in your plumbing or roofing to avoid mildew and mold problems.

Conclusion

If you feel unwell in your home, you may be suffering from a home hazard. Tackle any health problems in your home to stay healthy.
