Well there are two very interesting questions and we come across them often. So to paint or not to paint? Painting as a whole is one of those things you can do that actually doesn’t cost a whole lot and it can give arise to two important sensory outlooks, 1. Sight (Pretty obvious really) and smell! Even if you just paint the hallway it will have that fresh paint smell when a Buyer walks in the door. However, what if you want to paint a few rooms a little out of the ordinary?

 When it comes to selling your Barrie home, the following question often comes to mind: What will happen to your existing mortgage when you sell and are there any costs to breaking a mortgage?

 As a Barrie homeowner, you most likely have been paying a mortgage loan ever since you bought the house. The word Mortgage actually comes from the Spanish word ‘Mort’ or translated ‘Till death’! The borrower, that’s you, gives the Mortgage and in return you receive some remuneration, I.E. Cash. The Lender holds your debt (Mortgage) until you either repay it or you become deceased,(Mort). In English, it is basically a loan obtained from a credit institution such as a bank or lending company to help finance the purchase of a home as part of a buying agreement. During the term of the loan and over time, the outstanding loan (Debt) will become significantly lower due to consistent monthly repayments. Read the rest of this entry

Good morning all,

This morning the government announced changes to financing regulations for canadians. This is designed to slow the housing market in Canada, reduce borrowing / speculation, and induce canadians to save by paying down their mortgage. Like all government interventions, the intentions may be honorable but the delivery can sometimes be like chopping the patients arm off when a band aid would do. Barrie Real estate for sale

Real estate comment from former CFO

OK, I just came across this statement, ‘supposedly’ from a former CFO of McDonalds. Having read part of the story of the McDonalds growth to the largest hamburger chain in the world have seen similar quotes before. However, this is just a great quote. If ever you wondered whether real estate was a good long term investment, these guys clearly think so.

According to the company’s former CFO: “We are in the real estate business. The only reason we sell hamburgers is because they are the greatest producer of revenue from which our tenants can pay us rent.”

If you are a McDonalds Franchisee and are reading this, I’m Ray Croc and his team sends you their regards. Come to think of it, isn’t the business model the same for most/all restaurent franchises? Gotta think that I like the Franchisor side of that equation.

Food for thought.
