Premier Horgan’s New Year’s Day statement Premier John Horgan has issued the following statement in recognition of New Year’s Day 2018: “The new year brings new beginnings and new opportunities. It is a chance to look back at the challenges we have faced, and to resolve ourselves to overcome obstacles in the year to come. “From addressing housing affordability to tackling the opioid crisis, and the ongoing recovery from last year’s devastating wildfires, we have no shortage of important work to do in the coming year. “On New Year’s Day we are given the opportunity to think about where we are and where we have to go. It is a day to consider the path ahead and to set our minds to meet our goals.

that benefits everyone, to make life more affordable for families and to improve the services people rely on.

“On behalf of the government of British Columbia, I wish you a safe, healthy and happy new year with many more “In 2018, we will be working hard to to come.� create a strong, sustainable economy

New Year's resolutions that help others (NC) The new year is a great time to work on self-improvement. Many people do this by setting goals like going to the gym more or eating healthier. While these are great practices, resolutions that help others are ones that often get overlooked. If you are looking to have a more selfless year, check out these ideas. Reduce, reuse, recycle. If you are looking for an easy resolution that will help the world, look no further than increasing your eco-friendly practices. Bring your own bags to the grocery store, and chose glass or paper containers over plastic when you can. Try things like bringing your lunch to work in reusable Tupperware instead of plastic bags. These habits might take time to get used to, but once you do you'll forget there was ever another way. Clean out your home. Believe it or not, spring cleaning is good for you and your community. If you donate your unwanted things, you could be providing furniture, clothing, or other goods to people in need. Plus, donating used items is an eco-friendly practice, so you can knock two things off your resolutions list. Give to charity. You can contribute by donating your time or money. If you are too busy to make a regular commitment, consider setting up a monthly donation. Many organizations allow you to establish an installment plan so that the same amount of money will be charged to your account every month while keeping it easy to opt out if finances get tight.

Get the most out of your rewards program (NC) Almost every brand now has its own unique rewards program filled with great opportunities to earn and cash in great rewards. But how can you make your points go the extra mile? Here are some tips that give you the most bang for your buck. Choose the right one. Everyone has different lifestyle priorities and expenses — maybe you have a big family and high grocery bill, maybe you travel a lot for work or pleasure, or maybe you enjoy watching all the latest movies in theatres. To get the most benefits out of your rewards program, choose one that either gives you points for every purchase or one that's tailored to what you spend on or value most. Link your accounts. Many rewards programs include several brands or partner with other programs, allowing you to earn more frequently or even exchange your points. Other programs add brands and earning opportunities as they expand and merge with other companies. For example, since Marriott acquired

Starwood l a s t year, members of both hotel chains' rewards programs have been able to link their accounts and transfer points, giving them access to 6,200 properties in 125 countries. Go mobile. Rewards programs love connecting with their members and look for opportunities to engage with them whenever possible. Often, there are extra bonuses and perks for downloading mobile apps, like special discounts and the ability to track your rewards status. Marriott's app unlocks a Mobile Key that lets you skip the front desk and go straight to your room; get priority room upgrade notifications; and request services like robes, amenities, room service or luggage assistance at any time.

The New Year's resolution you can actually keep (NC) Every New Year's Eve we do the same thing — decide on a list of goals for the upcoming year. Maybe you manage to keep some of the resolutions you set, but if you are like the rest of us, you forget by February. Let this year be the start of something new. Instead of creating a list, focus on one doable resolution — a monthly gift to charity. Giving back is one of the most important things we can do as citizens of this world, so it should already be a top priority for the new year.

You'd be amazed at how much your money can do for people in need. For example, just $50 a month can provide a girl in Africa with everything she needs to go to school. Giving is also flexible; if finances get tight it is very easy to end your monthly donation.

Monthly gifts are an effortless way to Find more information at www.beautisupport a charity. You simply decide fulworldcanada.org. how much you want to give, then set up a 12-month installment plan.

6 ways to introduce babies to books (NC) Raising a life-long reader starts early, but knowing how to bring books into baby's routine isn't always easy. Here, Charlotte Teeple, executive director of the Canadian Children's Book Centre and head of the TD Grade One Book Giveaway, Canada's largest free book distribution program for school-aged children, shares how to bring books to life for babies. 1. Choose the right book. Books using simple language, repeating sounds and simple images of familiar shapes are a great first introduction to reading. 2. Build baby's first library. Encourage family members to buy books as gifts or organize a book exchange with other parents to help build a home library that keeps reading interesting for everyone.

4. Read daily. Whether it's reading first thing in the morning, at the library or as part of a bedtime routine, look for ways to incorporate reading every day. 5. Make books accessible.

Born and raised in the Fraser Valley and looking to give back to my community. I’ve aended the University of the Fraser Valley and I am a Mennonite Educaonal Instute (MEI) graduate.

BC Hydro restores power to more than 150,000 customers; crews continue repair work after ice storms Crews continue to work on repairing damage caused by two ice storms that hit the Fraser Valley area, resulting in hundreds of individual power outages. As of 3 p.m., BC Hydro crews have restored more than 159,000 customers; around 2,200 remain without power. The ice storms have caused significant damage to BC Hydro’s infrastructure, including hundreds of spans of wire, and dozens of power poles, cross-arms and transformers. The outages are a result of ice forming on trees, causing them to break and fall on to power lines and knock down power poles. In other cases, BC Hydro’s equipment has been encased with ice, which crews have to remove in order to make repairs. This, in addi-

tion to difficult and dangerous conditions – icy roads, poor visibility, and falling trees – have created challenges for crews. Numerous smaller outages remain in hard-to-access, rural areas that crews have to attend individually. BC Hydro is continuing to prioritize customers that have been without power the longest. Over 450 field workers have been working around-the-clock since Thursday to make repairs and restore power. BC Hydro appreciates its customers’ patience as repair work continues and will provide updated estimates for power restoration as they become available at bchydro.com/outages.

You can count on Canada Pension Plan being around when you retire (NC) No matter how old you are, when planning for retirement, there are many things to consider, like how much money you will need and where you'll live. Fortunately, while many questions may remain unanswered, there is something that you can count on — your Canada Pension Plan.

whatever happens, contributors and beneficiaries of the CPP can remain confident that one element of their retirement income is secure, thanks to a well-managed and diverse portfolio of equities, bonds, real estate and infrastructure investments.

Though only one in three non-retirees believes that the CPP will have enough money to cover their retirement benefits, this couldn't be further from the truth.

“Canadians can rest easy knowing that their CPP will be there when they need it,” says Dan Madge, senior manager at the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, which is responsible for investing the fund's contributions.

According to the Chief Actuary of Canada, the Canada Pension Plan is sustainable for at least the next 75 years at current contribution rates and he projects it will continue growing over this period to approximately $6.7 trillion in 2090.

“With the simple objective of maximizing returns without taking undue risk, CPPIB will continue to ensure that a portion of your retirement income is sustainable, so that you can concentrate on what matters most — family and new experiences.”

Sustaining growth in an ever-changing Find more information at www.cppib. environment is no small feat. But com.

Radon health risks require testing (NC) Since you can’t smell, taste or see radon gas that is present in most homes, how can you make sure your home is safe? The only way to know for sure is to purchase a radon test kit and measure the levels of radon in your home. Outdoors, radon gas is diluted and doesn’t pose a health risk. The problem occurs when radon enters enclosed spaces like your home and accumulates to high levels, contaminating the air you breathe. The amount of radon in homes across Canada varies widely. On average, seven per cent of homes are estimated to have high radon, but in some areas that number jumps to 20 to 40 per cent. Radon exposure is the second-leading cause of lung cancer behind smoking. In fact, Health Canada estimates that over 3,000 people a year — more than eight a day — die of radon-related

PAGE 22

lung cancer. That’s why it’s essential that you test your home for you and your family’s health. Your risk of developing lung cancer due to radon depends on its concentration in the air you breathe and the duration of exposure. Time between exposure and the onset of cancer is usually many years — all the more reason to test sooner rather than later. For smokers, the exposure to radon combined with tobacco use can cause a significant increase in their risk of lung cancer. Fortunately, indoor radon levels can be reduced easily and affordably. Find more information and learn how to reduce radon in your home at www. canada.ca/radon.

SPORTSByINDylanABBOTSFORD Kular. Abbotsford is home to many established youth sports organizations and is fortunate to have new organizations establishing themselves every year. That means there are many options for you and your family. Do not feel overwhelmed by the options or the pricing. Nearly every sport is now being offered by an organization or the City of Abbotsford at the recreation centers. With that being said, there are also cheaper and more expensive sport programs to register your child into.

According to Ontario Realtors, increasing housing supply in the province is the best long-term solution to keep home ownership within reach for young buyers and future generations.

One idea being recommended by Ontario Realtors is more housing supply. To meet the needs of diverse families, it's important to add more variety of homes to the market, such as townhouses, stacked flats and mid“OREA's plan for increasing housing rise buildings — and government can supply in Ontario includes speedsupport these efforts. ing up building approval processes, “Over the past year, Ontario Real- encouraging building more 'missing tors have been sounding the alarm middle' type homes and making sure on the lack of housing supply in the infrastructure funding is targeted toGreater Golden Horseshoe.

Both the goals and beliefs you have established over the last 3 years now move to a stage that will put you under pressure to commit in a serious way during the next 3 years. You can experience a sudden insight this week that encourages a new approach, with your thinking becoming clearer for decision making to mid January.

You will move on from underlying pressure from the expectations of somebody else that has affected your life in an underlying manner for the last 3 years. There are certain things you have had to learn to let go of as well. The next 3 years will lack the same boundaries and encourage you to work out what is important long term.

Greater attention to detail will be required of you over the next 3 years, which could inhibit your natural skill to take things as they come or deal with them at the time. If you embrace this you can develop the ability to speed up processes through greater efficiency. Praise can be lacking so you need to be content with yourself.

The greater your focus has been in the last 3 years on getting a good foundation in place with any set of circumstances in your life, including family, the more you can enjoy the rewards in the next 3 years. With this can come a greater sense of peace or the ability to relax. Responsibilities involving young people can be important.

Things you have learnt, which can include study or information you have gathered over the last 3 years now take you to the next stage of committing yourself during the next 3 years. You now have to get serious about what you are putting in place because it will form a foundation for a long period of time. It can include family.

There has been a need to apply sense and caution to your personal finances during the last 3 years. What you have learned from this can now open up your mind to all sorts of ideas and possibilities during the next 3 years. To your birthday 2018, you need to keep any sense of impulse under control to make the most of future growth

Saturn moves on from your sign where it has been for the last 3 years putting you under pressure to be serious and responsible and perhaps bringing restrictions into your life. This will now be the case with your finances during the next 3 years. You can do extremely well here as long as you are not wasteful. Fall back on your newfound maturity that should have developed in the last 3 years.

Saturn, your ruling planet, moves into your sign where it will remain for the next 3 years. This will provide plenty of opportunity for you to be successful with any situation you are prepared to commit yourself to. You have natural tendencies towards serious commitment and this can pay hansom dividends, though you might need to teach others to be more responsible, rather than you doing it for them.

Life has directed you to focus in a serious way on priorities that need to be most important in your life during the last 3 years. You have likely changed your view on these as well. During the next 3 years you will need a lot of patience as progress might seem held back as you will need to withdraw a lot for deep considerations.

Commitments and responsibilities have put you under a lot of pressure during the last 3 years. At times it probably felt like overload. As a result, this will now take you to the stage of becoming more acutely aware of what should take priority, based on what you wish to get out of life. These decisions need to come from you.

You will move out of the realm, which has affected you for the last 3 years, where it has been difficult to know the level of appreciation others really have for your efforts or to know where you stand. You will certainly get more attention in the next 3 years but need to be mindful of just how much responsibility you take on.

You should review what you have learned about commitments involving others in the last 3 years and the pressure you might have experienced as a result. This will not magically disappear in the next 3 years but can become more subtle, though there will be a definite controlling factor, either by others or life’s circumstances.

Province puts more naloxone into the hands of British Columbians to save lives

T

o help save lives and prevent overdose deaths, take-home naloxone kits are now available at community pharmacies throughout British Columbia, free to people who use opioids or are likely to witness an overdose, Minister of Mental Health and Addictions Judy Darcy announced today. “Our most urgent priority is to keep people alive, so we’re dramatically expanding easy access to naloxone,” Darcy said. “Bringing a friend or a loved one back from the brink of death can hinge on people knowing how to use a naloxone kit and having access to one – and making them available at local pharmacies makes them more accessible than ever.” About 1,900 kits have been distributed to 220 pharmacies for the first time this month, including pharmacies in the London Drugs and Save-on-Foods chains, as well as a number of independent pharmacies. Under this expansion of the Take Home Naloxone program,

pharmacists provide kits free-of-charge to people who are eligible, as well as training in overdose recognition and response.

the opioid crisis as one of the most accessible health-care providers in nearly every community across the province,” said Geraldine Vance, BC Pharmacy Association chief executive officer. “Pharmacists are trained, experienced and knowledgeable, not only in medication but in providing an essential health-care service to our patients and to our community. Providing the life-saving naloxone kit from the community pharmacy level to treat opioid overdose is an important step in dealing with the current crisis.”

“Take-home naloxone kits are a key harm-reduction measure in our multipronged approach to combat the overdose crisis and have saved countless lives,” said Dr. Jane Buxton, BC Centre for Disease Control harm reduction lead. “Through this new collaboration, naloxone will now be readily available at more locations, making it easier for people to look out for each other and be safer.” “London Drugs is pleased to partner To receive a free naloxone kit, British with the Ministry of Mental Health and Columbians can visit a participating Addictions and the BC Pharmacy Aspharmacy and talk to a pharmacist sociation to implement this take-home to determine their eligibility. No-cost naloxone kit program across British kits are available for people who use Columbia,” said Chris Chiew, London opioids or are likely to witness and Drugs, pharmacy general manager. respond to an overdose.

departments, corrections facilities and First Nations sites. The expansion of the Take Home Naloxone Program into pharmacies is part of a new $322-million provincial investment over the next three years to address the overdose crisis. About $2 million per year has been allocated to increase access to naloxone, including through this new partnership between the BC Pharmacy Association and the BC Centre for Disease Control. Broader access to naloxone is key to the provincial response, now being coordinated through the new provincial Overdose Emergency Response Centre. Additional areas of focus include expanding access to opioid substitution medications to treat opioid addiction, opening more overdose prevention and supervised consumption sites, expanding access to drug checking services, proactively identifying and supporting people at risk of overdose, and improving the system of treatment and recovery services.

In addition to the 50% rate cut, the income threshold for full exemption from MSP premiums under the premium assistance program will also be raised by $2,000, as of Jan. 1, 2018.

In October, 2017, Surrey School District conducted a survey in its elementary schools to determine parent interest in second language at their child’s school. The survey was directed at students in grades 2, 3 and 4. The five languages included in the survey were French, Punjabi, Mandarin, Japanese and Korean. The district staff is in the process of tabulating the survey results and prepare a report for the Board of School Trustees. This report will likely be presented to the Board early in January. PLEA has been informed that the Punjabi speaking parents have taken a keen interest in filling out the survey form and returning it to the school of their child. For this, I would like to thank each one of the parents who took the time to complete the survey form and return it to the school. For the past few years, PLEA has been working hard in getting Punjabi classes under way in Surrey’s elementary schools which have a fairly large number of Indo-Canadian students. These include Chimney Hill, T.E. Scott, F.D. Sinclair, Woodward Hill and Georges Vanier etc... Once the report is made public, we will be able to pinpoint the targeted schools more accurately. At this time, eight high schools in Surrey

are offering Punjabi classes. PLEA’s goal is to increase the student numbers for Punjabi classes in the four elementary schools currently offering Punjabi– Newton, Green Timbers, Strawberry Hill and Beaver Creek. In addition to that, PLEA would like to add at least four and possibly more schools, to this list. For this, we need full support of the parents, Indo-Canadian media and the community.

In the meantime, on behalf of PLEA, I would like to urge parents, media and our community to continue to assist us in this process. We will be discussing these issues at our upcoming fifteenth International Mother Language Day (IMLD) on Saturday, January 20 at North Delta Recreation Centre (11415 at 84 Avenue) in Delta beginning at 2 PM (Doors open at 1:30 PM). PLEA is lining up an exciting program for IMLD. Well known police officer Sgt. Jag Khosa from CFSEU will share as to how the Punjabi language has impacted/helped his professional and volunteer work. As you are aware, Jag and his team have been doing an amazing job in helping parents and youth tackle the issues of gangs and violence. In addition to that, a panel consisting of prominent members of

the community and professionals will discuss the issues relating to Punjabi. Well known Punjabi scholars including Dr. Sadhu Singh, Surrey School Board member Garry Thind and UBC’s Sukhwant Hundal will also be sharing their thoughts about Punjabi with the audience. There will also be an update on PLEA’s activities during 2017 and upcoming plans. Every year PLEA honours a prominent member of our community for his/her contribution to Punjabi language. This year again we will honour a special individual –Mr. Gian Singh Thind- a retired aircraft mechanic with Air Canada. Mr. Thind learned to read and write Punjabi here on his own in Canada and published a magazine in Punjabi in the 1950s. PLEA will also be recognizing two dedicated teachers and promoters of Punjabi language for their contribution. In addition to that, there will be poetry reading by students and prominent poets in our community. Admission to this function is free and there will be light refreshments. On behalf of PLEA, I would like to invite everyone to join us in celebrating our mother tongue Punjabi. Further information can be obtained by phoning

me at 604-836-8976 or Sadhu Binning at 778-773-1886. I would like to wish you, your family, colleagues and readers a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Kriti Sanon reveals what has enabled her to improve as a performer Having spent four years in the industry, Kriti Sanon says her outings have enabled her to improve as a performer. "I never thought of becoming an actor when I was doing B-Tech. Then, I came to a city unknown to me. And now, I have four films to my credit, and a space [in the industry] that I created myself. This feels great. With every film, I have grown as a person, and an actor. I learnt on the job as I had no real training of being an actor. When I look back at the roles that I played, [I realise that] the approach I have towards my work is different now. For me, growth is important," she says. Sanon adds that she is willing to take risks for roles that interests her. "I am not restricting myself as an actor. I want to play different kinds of characters, but it's essential that I like the offers."

A good commercial film will always work : Rohit Filmmaker Rohit Shetty, who scored a hit with Reliance Entertainmentbacked Golmaal Again in a year which has seen Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan’s films fall flat at the box office, says a good commercial movie will always work. During a conversation on Saavn’s “Take 2 with Anupama and Rajeev”, Shetty was asked if there was any sort of anxiety about the fact that a chunk of commercial films were rejected in 2017 before “Judwaa 2” and “Golmaal Again” came, read a statement. Shetty said: “No... What has happened is that just because you have a big star, you tag it as a commercial film. I don’t see ‘Tubelight’ as a commercial film. Whereas Salman Khan’s ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ is a commercial film — you can make out, there is action, there is song and there is everything what a Salman Khan film should be like. “And

I really admire and respect Kabir (Khan) for taking Salman Khan after Bajrangi (Bhaijaan) and making a film like Tubelight. It didn’t work, that’s a different story altogether but at least he was honest in what he was doing. So I don’t see Tubelight as a commercial film. “I don’t see ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ as an out and out Shah Rukh Khan commercial film. So you can’t call these two films commercial. And other than that what happened this year was that a lot of people took back-foot, ‘Oh, commercial is not going to work’, which is a wrong theory altogether. A good commercial film will always work.” As for himself, he says he doesn’t know if there’s a success formula.

I've not struggled in showbiz: Ayesha Jhulka

Been though hiccups personally, professionally : Rani

Actress Ayesha Jhulka, who is making her Bollywood comeback after seven years with Anil Sharmas "Genius", says she has survived in the entertainment industry on her own terms and conditions, and never struggled because of work. Ayesha, 45, is often remembered for her roles in films like "Kurbaan", "Khiladi", "Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar", "Waqt Hamara Hai" and "Masoom". She was last seen in "ADA...A Way of Life" in 2010. "I have been very lucky that I have not struggled in the industry and never wanted to. So, I didn't want to be kicked out of the industry. I was a little selfish that way. I wanted to leave it on my own terms, and it is very difficult to say no when you are doing really well," Ayesha said."When I got married (to Sameer Vashi), I wanted to lead a civilian's life and wanted to see the other side of the world. As I started working at a very young age (in 1983), for many years, I just worked. "After a point I wanted to enjoy my life, I wanted to party with my friends

"What is life without a few hiccups" -- the tagline of the upcoming film "Hichki" resonates with the ideology of the film's lead actress Rani Mukerji. "Hichki", meaning a hiccup, is about Naina who suffers from a speech difficulty. It is about turning disadvantages into opportunities and staring down at challenges and ultimately winning over them. Asked if she has faced any hiccups in her two-decade career, Rani said from Mumbai: "Yes, of course. I think hiccup is a normal process for any actor, for any person in their life. Sometimes you have a hiccup in your personal life and sometimes in your professional life. "The beauty of a hiccup is that you can get over it as well. It's not like that you have a hiccup and you keep hiccuping all your life... There been times professionally and personally, I have been through hiccups." Without elucidating on the hurdles she has faced, Rani said hiccups can be a learning experience.

and do lot of things for which I have to thank my husband, who has opened that world for me which I have been enjoying all these years," she added. During her break, Ayesha also went through harsh times."I was bed-ridden for some time because I had a slip disc problem. Because of that, I had gained a lot of weight which I'm losing now. So, I took a break," she said. Why she chose "Genius" for her Bollywood comeback? Ayesha explained: "I have not been doing much work because I felt something really nice would comes my way. I signed 'Genius' out of respect and he (Anil Sharma) really wanted me to do this film. After seven years I have signed a film. We shot in Mauritius and we have few days schedule left which we will shoot in Mumbai."

Will soon be on feet again : Amitabh Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who has been suffering from pain due to an aggravated old injury and was advised bed rest, says his health is improving and he will be back in action soon. Earlier this week, the 75-yearold actor, said he was suffering from excruciating pain on the left shoulder due to an extra tear in the rotor cup. He was also seen sporting a sling and an ice pack.Thanking his 'extended family' -- his

fans and social media followers -- for the concern and wishes for his recovery, "It goes well. Yes, the sling is and shall be there for sometime. The rotor cup on my left shoulder has a tear due to an earlier injury."This has got aggravated during recent action sequences... Medication and ice fermentations and rest is prescribed and being diligently followed. So, do not despair. Yes, the day before the condition worsened due to the drugs being taken for the pain."They were too strong and had affected my stomach which gave me a lot of discomfort. So, was bed ridden. But now a huge improvement now and soon to be on feet again."

A beginner’s guide to buying appliances (NC) With so many options to consider, shopping for appliances can sometimes feel overwhelming. Function, size and design — it’s about finding the right model for your lifestyle. Here are a few helpful insights from The Home Depot Canada to consider before making your next appliance purchase. Refrigerator Function. The sky’s the limit when it comes to configuration — top-mount, bottom-mount and side-by-side are just the beginning. Review your daily needs and consider special features such as easy access doors, multi-tier freezer sections, icemakers, second refrigerator drawer options, convertible freezer sections, wine chillers and even smart home-connected capabilities. Design. Think outside traditional white or stainless-steel finishes. Instead, bring a contemporary feel to your kitchen with slate, glossy or

matte black stainless or even a warm, goldhued veneer. Range Configuration. New designs have a host of convenient options available, like double ovens that cook at two different temperatures simultaneously and warming and baking drawers to help with multi-tasking and entertaining. If space is tight, a safer alternative because the coils also consider installing a separate are underneath glass, protecting little cooktop for maximum flexibility in hands. your kitchen.

Energy efficient options can provide long-term savings to your monthly bills.

To save you time, look for bonus features like quiet operation or advanced cleaning functions. PAGE 47

How to Sell Your Abbotsford Home For Top Dollar

Buyers do not see your home the same way you do. They are very discriminating about its condition, the neighborhood and the price. An average buyer will view between 15-20, ranking yours among all the that they have viewed. With this in mind, here are some measures you can take to ensure your home presents well to a potential buyer and garners help you to achieve the best price in the shortest amount of time. Be clear about why you are selling Knowing the reasons for your move determines everything from setting the price to allocating funds for repairs and improvements. Is the price you obtain more important than how long your home is on the market? Do you need to sell immediately? Each why requires a different strategy. At the same time, you do not need to reveal your why to anyone. Something negative might be used as a bargaining tool at the negotiating table. If someone wants to know why you are selling,

PAGE R6

politely respond that your housing needs have changed.

Conduct thorough research before setting a price Establishing an offering price is an investment in your future. Find out what similar homes in your neighbourhood have sold for in the 6-12 months. Also check out the prices of homes currently listed. The price you ask should be within the range of similar homes in the neighbourhood. If it is too high or too low, buyers will question the reasons for this discrepancy. Your home could stay on the market longer than you would like. You may also have to adjust the price and wind up getting less than you hoped. Find a good real estate agent to represent your needs A Real Estate Professional is your best bet. This person has the educational background, the industry and community connections to work in your best interests. Maximize your home's sales potential

First impressions are absolutely critical. The look, the feel and the care of your home promote an emotional response. Even before they walk in your door, prospective buyers will try to imagine themselves living in your home. Just like a new outfit, buyers want to see if this home will "fit" their lifestyle. Clean everything until it sparkles. Pick up, organize, throwaway, scrub, scour, dust and disinfect. Be sure to complete all minor repairs. Buyers are especially keen on work that may need to be completed. Ensure all areas of the contract are covered

it is in your best interests to disclose everything you know about the property. Failure to disclose could result in costly delays, litigation or even cancellation of the sale transaction. Most importantly, if a buyer knows about an item, he or she has no future recourse. Be sure you understand all terms, costs and responsibilities. Stay in your home until closing It may be harder to sell a vacant home. Furniture, drapes and all the assort-

ment of daily activities go a long way to create the warmth and comfort of a home. To some buyers, an unoccupied home could be seen as forlorn, forgotten and not as appealing. You might have to reduce your price, depending upon the buyer. At the same time, you are sending the message that you have found a new home, and you likely need to sell fast. Stay out of the way during showings When buyers view your home, gently remove yourself and allow buyers to feel at home. By pointing out features, improvements and decorating items, that are meaningful to you, or you have spent money on, you could be seen as adding pressure to the sale. Best to leave the showing to your Real Estate Professional. Get pre-approval for your next mortgage Prior to shopping for your new home, be smart and get a pre-approval letter from your bank and financial institution. This means you will have your financial matters in place and that you are serious about making an offer.

When is the Best Time to Sell Your Home? Whether you are looking to downsize, upgrade, relocate or simply want a lifestyle change, the process of selling your home can be a positive one. As a professional Real Estate agent, my goal is to help you sell your home with little hassle, as quickly as possible and for top dollar. Before taking the step forward in terms of placing that "Just Listed" sign on your property, I recommend taking time to assess the reasons why you want to move. Perhaps: - The kids have moved out and you are ready to downgrade? - Maybe you are wanting to start a family and need more room? - Have you changed employment and want to move closer to the office? - Perhaps, you simply want to change your lifestyle whether to embrace a more urban atmosphere or a suburb. - or a factor of various other reasons... By discovering your motives for selling, I will be able to assist you better when it comes to searching for a new home and figuring out what you ultimately require in the outcome of selling your existing home.

When is the best time to sell your home? While more houses typically go on the market in the spring, this does not necessarily indicate that this is the only good time to list your home. Ultimately, there are always buyers and sellers so it really comes down to your situation and what works best for you. While the winter months are typically assumed to be the worst time to sell, there are many occasions that indicate otherwise. For example if a person sells their home in the fall, they will need a new home anywhere from the next month to 3 months away. This means that this person may have less inventory to choose from and therefore your property may stand out more, resulting in an increased demand and higher selling price. Alternatively, in the spring there may be more inventory and also more buyers. If the balance of buyers versus inventory in both spring and winter is on par, the pricing will remain the same or similar. Keep in mind, your time is the right time. In most cases, the best time to sell is likely when your existing home no longer meets your needs. Economic factors are an important factor When selling, you may want to also take into consideration economic factors. Are interest rates low or high and

how do these interest rates compare to your current mortgage? If rates are higher, your monthly payment amounts may be higher than your existing ones upon the purchase of another home. If rates are lower, it could be a great time to trade up to a more expensive home without enduring a significant increase in your monthly financial obligations. Market trends may also play a part depending on whether it is a buyers or sellers market. Typically, in a buyers' market, there are more homes for sale then there are actual buyers. In a buyers market, homes will tend to stay on the market longer and prices may stabilize or decrease. Just because it is a buyers market though, does not mean that your home will not sell, take longer to sell and or be sold at significantly decreased prices. By making sure that your home is priced at a fair value and is show ready, your home should still sell in a decent amount of time and at a great price. In comparison, a sellers market tends to have more buyers then houses avail-

able to be purchased. A sellers market typically translates into quicker sales and higher selling prices with buyers having to make decisions at a quicker pace and being prepared for potential multiple offer scenarios. Other than a buyers and sellers market, many times there is what is considered a balanced market. A balanced market occurs when the number of homes of the market is approximately equal to the quantity of buyers looking for new homes. Regardless of the market, I am able to provide you with the most knowledge and offer resources in order to make the most of your move. Through comprehensive training in the real estate market, I can take advantage of all the factors discussed above to help assess your situation and determine the right buying or selling time that would work best for you personally.

Hidden Costs of Selling Your Home The costs associated with selling You have spent considerable time and money on home improvements to bring your home into "show" condition. You have taken the dog to the neighbours when your Real Estate Professional hosted open houses. You are pleased that your Real Estate Professional has negotiated the best price on your behalf. The offer has been accepted and you are all set for your move. Congratulations! You have accomplished a major milestone in selling your home. There are financial items you will want to consider upon the sale of your home. The buyer is typically responsible for these closing costs including:

PAGE R12

• legal/notarial fees for handling the sales transaction • disbursements or out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the lawyer or notary • property tax and utility adjustments • land transfer or "welcome" taxes As the seller, you will also have some debts to discharge before you can access your funds including: • real estate commissions • building location certificate or survey

• outstanding municipal/school taxes or public service • assessments • outstanding mortgage balance and any charges associated with discharging your mortgage early (if you are not transferring your mortgage to your new home, or the buyer is not assuming it)

• legal and discharge fees • outstanding adjustments owed to the buyer

As fees and costs vary from province to province and city to city, your Real Estate Professional can advise you on
