Why use your hard-earned cash to pay the landlord's mortgage when you could be using the rent money to buy a home of your own? That's a question many people ask themselves when they start thinking about moving out of the rental market to home ownership. It's a big step. For most people, taking out a mortgage is the biggest financial commitment they will ever make. But buying your own home has always made sound financial sense. Here are some facts to think over when considering home ownership as opposed to renting.


• As your family grows and moves on to homes of their own, you will have the option of earning extra income by renting out spare rooms or floors, if local bylaws allow. • If you are planning to borrow money from a bank or other financial institution, owning your own home is a definite plus when it comes time to negotiate. • You may not need as much money as you think to get into the home market. Qualified buyers can buy a house with as little as 5% down through the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation's (CMHC) mortgage insurance scheme. You may also be able to use RRSP funds as part of your down payment. • With many kinds of investments, you have to pay a capital gains tax on profit you make. If your home is your principal residence, this tax does not apply.

• If you are 35 now and just buying your first home, you will likely be mortgage-free when you are 60 and sitting comfortably on a considerable asset. • It's highly likely your investment will appreciate considerably in 25 years. It's important, however, not to buy with the intention of making a quick fortune. Think of home buying as a sound, longterm investment. • Buying a home is a very effective way of saving regularly over many years. Even if you never buy into another retirement or investment plan, you are effectively putting money away for the future.

After you have carefully considered all of the aspects of home ownership and are ready to begin your search, it's time to contact your REALTOR®. He or she has access to the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®), a co-operative marketing system through which properties are bought and sold. Using the MLS®, your REALTOR® can prepare a customized list of properties for sale that best meet your needs, wants and budget. Your REALTOR® will also provide valuable assistance and guidance to you throughout the buying process.

• Owning a home of your own means you and your family can set down roots, get to know your community and involve yourselves in it. • Discover the pride of home ownership. You can fix the place to suit your particular needs. You can also have pets in your home. Content courtesy of the Victoria Real Estate Board.

Can Help Sell Your Home What's curb appeal? It's that certain something about your home that catches the eye of the passerby and makes them want to take a closer look. If you're selling your home, curb appeal can quickly draw prospective buyers in for the first time. Without it, buyers may pass up on the chance to see inside and will miss what might have been the perfect home for them.

If you want to know where the best real estate buys on Vancouver Island are, you’ll want to attend the free seminar Saturday, March 8 at U-Vic, ‘Best Places To Buy On Vancouver Island’. This course reviews real estate prices & trends in the major island towns, which spots are ‘hot’ (& which are not) & how to go about finding the best properties. Updated & new information.

Your REALTOR® can give you numerous tips and suggestions to help you make that first impression really count. Here are a few ideas.

‘It’s difficult for buyers to find out about the best properties in other island communities. This course gives a good overview, shows where the best condo, house & townhouse bargains are, which communities are growing (& which aren’t), which get the most sunshine, compares amenities and much more”.

Keep your lawns neatly trimmed and edged. Trim trees and shrubbery to get rid of overhanging branches that might obscure a potentially good view of your home, or pathway leading to the front door. Turn over the soil in your flowerbeds. If there's little color in your front garden, make a splash with a display of inexpensive annuals, flower boxes and wooden tubs. Clay and plastic posts can also be filled with flowers and small shrubs and displayed in the yard or by the front entrance to give the feel of a warm welcome.

Seating is limited and fills quickly for this popular course. For those without a Realtor, call 250-477-0921 for details and to reserve a seat or register on-line @

Birdhouses and feeders, dried flower wreaths and hanging baskets on the front porch can give your home countryside curb appeal. Keep your porch, driveway and front yard clutter free. Remove garbage bins as soon as possible after pick-up, and avoid any build-up of junk mail.

Rick Couvelier Pemberton Holmes Ltd. 250-477-0921

Repair or replace broken steps or walkways. You might be used to the uneven paving or rickety stairs outside your home, but they could be hazardous to visitors, as well as unsightly. Your home's roof, chimney and exterior should look sound and well-cared for. Freshly painted woodwork is often well worth the time and money invested in it.


Former building inspector, builder, developer and professional real estate consultant with Pemberton Holmes Ltd., Rick Couvelier, is the speaker.

A good spruce-up can make a big difference If painting is unnecessary, your home will still benefit from a good spruce-up. Wash down window frames and clean your windows to make them sparkle. Scrub the front door and polish the house numbers, letterbox, doorknob and knocker. Open blinds, curtains or shutters to give your home an inviting, welcoming look. These are just a sample of some of the ways you can create curb appeal. Your REALTOR® can give you many other, customized tips to make the most of your home's unique charm. In addition, your REALTOR® can offer an objective view of any repairs and improvements that might be necessary to enhance the likelihood of selling your home. Creating curb appeal may just be the feature that sets your home apart from the rest. This article is provided by the Victoria Real Estate Board.
