A lower amortization rate may seem way out of your budget, but adjusting your spending can help you save a lot in the end.

Lower amortization is money in

your pocket

S

When I started in the mortgage industry, the maximun amortization was 25 years.

ince then, it’s moved to 40 years, to 35 years and now the maximum of 30 years. Changes to amortization carry concerns for some, so I thought I would give you some more details to assist you in understanding how lower amortizations can equate to a lot of money in your pocket and help build equity in your home at a faster rate. Some concerns clients have are: No longer being able to qualify for a mortgage based on the lower amortization, or a lower amortization means a big increase to payments and negatively impacts your buying power. This is not true; rates were much higher when all we had was 25-year amortizations. In fact, rates were as high as 21% and people still purchased homes. To illustrate this, let’s look at a mortgage based on $100,000 at 5%. The payment increases by $47,91 when we move from a 30-year amortization to 25 years. To be more relevant, on a $400,000 mortgage at 5%, the payment increases by $191,66 but you can save more than $70,000 in interest costs. That means some people are giving away significant portions of their hard-earned salary for the longer amortization. Choosing a 25-year amortization as opposed to a 30-year amortization will speed up the rate in which you build equity in your home.

BMO Bank of Montreal

Some budgets are tighter than others, but when was the last time you reviewed your spending habits? Can you find $48 a week, which is the additional payment amount needed to save up to $70,000 in interest? Take the time to review your budget. Tools such as BMO’s Money Logic provide ways of tracking and managing your spending, even on a daily basis. It can provide you the intricate details of how you spend your money. Once you have reviewed your spending, use MoneyLogic to help you stay on track by providing you with alerts once you have gone over your spending budget. Take time to sit down with a mortgage specialist annually to review your situation. I encourage you to visit your banker and understand how so little can save you so much.

Liz’ Tips

HOMEFINDER WEEKLY Reference Guide Inc. Brockville/Leeds & Grenville 1.877.935.7503 www.homefinderweekly.com

June 6th to June 20th, 2013

Decorating a small deck

A little personal outdoor space can go a long way towards relaxing the spirit. And just because your apartment or house came with a cramped deck doesn't mean you have to feel Liz’ Tips By: Liz Quinn of Design’in-Mind cramped in it. Maximum Impact with Minimal Investment With the right furniture and lots of welcoming colors and plants, you can sit in your very own oasis without fear of banging your knees or elbows. Here's how. 1. Make the deck seem wider

Paint your deck in a light color (or stain it in a clear coat). The lighter the shade, the bigger the deck will feel. If your deck is already painted in a dark shade, first prime it with water-based primer (which is white), then follow with the light color of your choice. 2. Shrink the furniture

Relatively speaking, the smaller your furniture the larger your deck will feel. Look for comfortable Adirondack chairs that offer great style in a small shape, or opt for more streamline furniture. And give up on the idea of a lounge chair, unless your deck is narrow but long. 3. Choose bright seat cushions

You may not have room for a deck lounge, but you can still be comfortable. Consider the colour of your house siding or brick; you don’t want to place pink cushions next to a red-brick wall. Select seat cushions to fit the style of your small furniture. Choose blues and greens, reds and purples, or orange and yellows, colors that will look bright even on cloudy days. And be sure the fabric is fade-resistant. 4. Paint the wall behind the deck

5. Hang your plants

Depending on the house building material (brick, siding, wood, etc.) consider painting the wall of the house or your privacy enclosure in a darker shade. This will further increase the apparent size of the deck. It will also create a beautiful backdrop for your deck plants and furniture.

Instead of cluttering your cramped floor space, insert swag hooks in the eaves overhead and hang planters filled with drooping English Ivy and strings of colorful flowers, or you may choose some hanging tomato plants.. You can also mount plant hangers on the wall of the house to suspend plants in the corners.

orange, blues or purples will really bring the space to life. Here's how to paint a deck rug. Materials Needed: • exterior paint

• painter's tape • tape measure • pencil

• notepad

• 2-inch paintbrush • roller handle • roller cover • paint pan • pan liner

• straightedge

Paint Background Deck

Pour exterior paint into pan liner placed in paint pan. Add roller cover to paint roller, then add two thorough coats of base color to deck. Measure and Tape

Once base color is dry to the touch, use a tape measure to determine dimensions of painted area rug. Jot dimensions down on the notepad. Referring to notepad, mark the rug dimensions directly onto the deck with a pencil and straightedge. Using the pencil marks as a guide, press the painter's tape directly along outside edge of mark. Follow these simple step-by-step instructions and see how exterior paint and painter's tape can breathe new life into an old deck. Paint Rug

Using a paint roller, add two thorough coats of area rug color directly to deck.

Reposition Tape

Once the painted "rug" is dry to the touch, slowly peel back painter's tape. Touch up any bleed marks using 2-inch paintbrush. Reposition tape along inside edge of area rug. Tape Border

Use tape measure to determine dimensions of border. Jot dimensions down on notepad. Referring to notes, mark the border dimensions directly onto deck with pencil and straightedge. Using pencil marks as guide, press painter's tape directly along outside edge of mark.

6. Window boxes

Hang window boxes on the far side of the deck rail. This will create a lush view from the deck, without cutting into its actual space. Use low-level plants to avoid creating an enclosed feeling. 7. Add whimsical beauty

Little whimsical touches will give personality to your deck retreat. Hang a beautiful bird feeder from the eaves, a wind chime, or a bird house. And slip blown-glass balls in your flower planters. 8. Add a patio umbrella

If you have no roof overhead, add a patio umbrella with a stand. Choose a brightly colored umbrella, to complement your new colours, to add life to your deck without plunging it in deep shadows. 9. Add a water fountain

Look for a small water fountain that will spread the soothing sound of running water through your deck. Place it near an outdoor outlet if you have one, or buy a battery operated fountain instead.

10. Paint an outdoor rug

Paint the colorful outline of a rug directly on your deck where your furniture is clustered to give the space a more intimate feel. Using bright hues like

Paint Border

Pour exterior paint into pan liner placed in paint pan. Add roller cover to paint roller, then add two thorough coats of area rug color directly to deck. Remove Area Rug Border Tape

Once paint is dry to the touch, slowly peel back painter's tape. Touch up any bleed marks using 2-inch paintbrush. Give deck at least 24 hours to cure before walking on it. Invite your guests and enjoy a great summer on your new deck!
