Almost half of homeowners sleepwalk through their mortgage renewal Given the large financial commitment of a mortgage, it’s surprising that 44 per cent of Canadian homeowners either just accept whatever their lender offers at renewal, or don’t even remember how they renewed! It’s tempting to just sleepwalk through the mortgage renewal process. But if you’re not doing even the slightest comparison shopping or negotiating, then you’re missing out on an opportunity to save thousands on
your mortgage. When your lender sends you a letter saying it’s time to renew… what that really means is that it’s time to get advice. Professional, independent advice. Get an expert second opinion on what you’re being offered. We’ll take a look, and compare it to what we can find out there as an alternative among the 50 or more lenders we have access to. Got a mortgage renewal coming up in the next six months? Let’s start talking! * A recent CAAMP/
Is your furnace winter ready? (NC) – The best time to prepare your furnace for winter weather is before it hits. After all, you don’t want to be left in the cold with a unit that doesn’t work properly. Not only will an inoperable furnace be inconvenient but it could lead to more expensive repairs that could have been avoided with an annual maintenance service. Canadian Tire Home Services, which provides furnace maintenance services and repairs to consumers across Canada, shares the fol-
lowing tips you can use to prepare your furnace for the winter months. Clean the furnace filter: Overtime, a filter becomes clogged with dirt, dust and other debris which causes the furnace to work extra-hard to heat your home. To keep your furnace running efficiently, be sure to clean or replace the filter every 3 – 4 months. Replacing your filters regularly may also create a cleaner air environment by removing allergens and bacteria from the air.

Clean furnace vents: Be sure to wipe down the exterior of all furnace vents to ensure they have a free flowing passage for air. If you have floor vents, remove any furniture or other objects that may be blocking them. Clean out the furnace room: The area around your furnace should not double as a storage room. Remove any clutter and be sure to vacuum the area around your furnace to prevent dust from entering and obstructing the unit.
Bring in the experts: A trained professional can inspect your unit to ensure it is in working order. Canadian Tire Home Services’ heating specialists provide year-round maintenance services that can improve your furnace’s performance, efficiency and reliability.

Mortgage rates on the rise? No need to panic; what you need is some smart strategies to prepare. Here are our top 5 tips: 1. Don’t take the money. If you’re buying a new home, don’t be tempted to borrow the maximum amount your lender will allow. 2. Do more than the

Damage to shingles can cause melted snow and ice to seep into your home causing leaks and potentially expensive water damage.

Find out what your prepayment privileges are and pay whatever you can. 4. Conduct a reality check. Find out what your mortgage balance will be at renewal and use our online mortgage calculator to project what your payments could be if you renewed at a higher rate. Start to ease up to your new payment level so at renewal, it’s like a merge lane! 5. Watch your bad debt. Be cautious about any credit card or other high-interest debt. Getting prepared for higher rates is not about panicking, it’s about being prudent. Talk to us. We can help you determine your best personal strategies to prepare for rising rates!
and play equipment until the spring, look for a place to store them. Prepare your trees and garden: Protect young trees and plants by wrapping them in plastic guards or burlap. Doing so will extend their life and prevent animals and rodents from eating your shrubs during the colder months. Also be sure to remove fallen leaves and debris from your yard to prevent damage to the grass.

Choosing a colour – There are many things to consider when choosing what colour will best suit the rooms and décor in your home. Start by considering the colour of your furnishings and how much light the room gets during the day – both will determine how the paint appears in the room. Room size and use are also important when deciding – light colours will make the room appear larger and more relaxing, while darker colours can make a room seem smaller and more intimate. Have a favourite colour you want on the wall? A paint match system can match the colour of any item, fabric, piece of clothing, etc. to bring
your favourite hue to life on your walls. Getting the right amount – A paint calcu-
lator will help determine how much paint you need for each room in your home.
