‘Shock’ after region ends help centre funding A senior citizen who never had a chance to go far in school, Norma Smith has turned many times to the Identification Clinic at York Region's Housing Help Centre to help her understand government forms and to assist her filling out paperwork for needed documentation. "They are so handy and helpful to the community," she said. The former nanny and personal care worker is devastated to learn regional government will end its funding next month to the Richmond Hill centre, which helps more than 2,000 low- and moderate-income York Region residents a year. "Oh my God, I don't have the words to say," said Smith, a native of Jamaica, who said staff at the centre have encouraged to her to take adult learning classes. "I am very, very sad, deeply sad. They are like a family to me. It's going to be very difficult for the community." The region is cutting off the $204,230 it provides annually for the ID clinic and the $136,310 it gives for the housing help centre, executive director Mary Ann Proulx said. The region is the sole source of funding for the programs, other than a small amount the facility gets from PowerStream to help low-income residents strug-

"I was in shock," said Proulx, adding the centre and clinic are the only services of their kind in the region. "We don't have operating funds to continue. It brings me to tears. I feel really bad for them (clients).

They're going to struggle, they're going to struggle even more so." Agencies are aware they must apply annually for funding under the Community Investment Strategy, the region's commissioner of community and health services, Adelina Urbanski, said.

"Annually, York Region provides targeted funding to not-forprofit agencies to help deliver projects to low- and moderateincome residents that address service gaps in the community,"

Overspending to overeating: How to curb holiday indulging

Chris simon & AdAm mArtin-robbins csimon@yrmg.com/amartinrobbins@yrmg.com The holidays can be a time to let loose on your wallet, trash bin and waistline. Once the calendar turns to December, there's a tendency to relax, exhale and be less stringent on the rules that guide us through most of the year. We've all done it. After working so hard for 11 months, the extra slice of pie or second helping of mashed potatoes is welldeserved, right? Then there's the gift shopping budget. We want to give our kids and spouses the happiest holiday season possible. Their dreams must become reality. However, those wishes come with a cost and often strain a family's budget, said Seneca College professor and certified financial planner Sam Albanese. "We know we have to spend and at this time of the year we tend to spend more. We need to take a look at disciplined spending. Santa Claus has a list and he sticks to that. He makes it clear this is his list and this is what everyone gets. Santa never goes overbudget. "But as humans, we don't make a list. We've got to try to get the emotions out of our spending and be more objective. Something may be two dollars, but when you start adding up all these $2 (items), suddenly that becomes $100 and on it goes." The Canadian government's healthy holiday food guide includes recommendations aimed at helping families eat well over the next month. It suggests families should try to eat together because that communal time encourages healthier habits. Cook and plan meals in advance for hectic days and make healthy snacks like pre-cut vegetables and fruit easily accessible. Also, create healthy food traditions by trying a new vegetable recipe or making food-based gifts like jars of dried fruit, nuts or soup mix. And start dessert off with a round of fruit, leaving room for a few bites of something richer. Aurora-based registered dietician Maria Fisher said holiday weight gain is common because, for many people, the indulgence doesn't last for just one day. There are multiple parties and gatherings and those gettogethers often force people off regular eating, exercising and sleeping habits. You can avoid packing on pounds by eating before heading to a social function and refraining from placing treats on counters

A Seneca College professor and certified financial planner says that we should follow Santa’s example and make a list and stick to it to avoid breaking the bank. and tabletops at home. Be careful when ordering coffeehouse specialty drinks and go easy on calorie-filled alcoholic beverages. It's OK to indulge, as long as your favourite holiday foods are consumed in moderate portions, she said. "The problem with gaining a pound or two over the holidays is that most people

don't lose it (afterward)," she said. "Eat your favourite foods that you can only get over the holidays and skimp on other tasty foods you can get any time of the year. Turkey stuffing is one of my favourites that I only make at Christmas - so I'll pass on the creamy mashed potatoes that I can have anytime." Overindulging also takes a toll on the

environment. The Region of York typically sees a 10 per cent spike in waste - garbage, recycling and organics - compared to other winter months, according to Julie Hordowick, program manager of York's integrated waste management strategy. So the region encourages residents to wrap presents in reusable bags, scarves or fabric and consider giving gift cards or "experiences" rather than "purchasing a lot of stuff that maybe people don't necessarily need," she said. This year, the region is targeting "avoidable food waste" through its Good Food program. "That's all geared toward giving people tools to plan their meals, to manage leftovers and ideas for what to do around the holidays to reduce the amount of food waste that you're generating," Hordowick said. "We've found about 15 to 20 per cent of the green bin is what we would consider to be avoidable food waste. Things people have bought and forgot and thrown out: It's whole produce, leftover lettuce, the leftover casserole that you didn't finish eating." As part of the Good Food program, the region put out a list of 10 tips aimed at reducing food waste during the holidays. "We encourage people to stock up on reusable containers so that when they do have guests over and there's leftovers, they've got a really easy way to pack stuff up and share it with their guests rather than it ending up in the green bin," Hordowick said. "We have recipes you can make ahead and freeze so that you're spending more time with your guests and you've got a way to save the food and portion it out over time. And (we encourage people) to consider potluck as an approach to family occasions so everybody brings a little bit of something and everybody is able to bring it home so leftovers get used up. It's less work for one person and it's often less waste that way." Remember though, even the experts admit it's tough to stringently stick to a plan. "Throughout the whole year, you've been quite disciplined," Albanese said. "You did the best you could and you say 'I've sacrificed all year, my family deserves this'. We tend to use Christmastime as a way of rewarding ourselves for a year of hard work. How do you overcome all this? It's almost impossible. All we can say is be conscious of (spending), try to set money aside and be as close as possible to that budget."

Tolls good idea if used for transit

The Vaughan Citizen, published every Thursday, is a division of the Metroland Media Group Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Torstar Corporation. The Metroland family of newspapers is comprised of more than 100 community publications across Ontario.

The Vaughan Citizen is a member of the National NewsMedia Council. Complainants are urged to bring their concerns to the attention of the newspaper and, if not satisfied, write The National NewsMedia Council, Suite 200, 890 Yonge St., Toronto, ON M4W 2H2. Phone: 416-340-1981 Web: www.mediacouncil.ca

re road tolls an idea whose time has come? Toronto Mayor John Tory seems to think so, given his announcement he’d like to charge motorists $2 to drive the Don Valley Parkway and the Gardiner Expressway. According to Tory’s arithmetic, the move could generate more than $200 million per year to invest in transit infrastructure. York Chair Wayne Emmerson acknowledged that charging a toll to make use of the DVP and the Gardiner could have a significant impact on those who rely on the routes. He hopes to meet with Tory to discuss the matter. As a concept, tolls aren’t necessarily a bad thing.

‘Our concern is how the money raised will be allocated. Will the tolls be for the good of all GTA commuters, or only boost Toronto’s coffers?’ They were among the revenue tools the province bandied about when it floated various means through which to fund needed transit improvements. York Region has a number of projects on the go and remains hopeful the Yonge Street subway will eventually extend into Richmond Hill. That alone will cost billions, and the money will have to come from somewhere, be it tolls, new taxes or other user fees. Our concern is how the money raised will be allocated. Will the tolls be for the good of all GTA commuters, or only boost Toronto’s coffers? According to the Toronto Star, the Gardiner alone needs $3.6 billion worth of repairs, and Toronto’s operating budget is facing a $516-million shortfall next year. Despite the fact Toronto’s own city manager, Peter Wallace, noted the 416 enjoys the lowest residential tax rate in Ontario, Tory has made it clear that raising taxes above the inflation rate is a non-starter. Other municipalities grapple with higher increases and their residents often receive considerably fewer services. Why is it Toronto can nix higher property taxes and jump right to tolls? Thankfully, the province would have to sign off on any new road tolls first. Again, the tolls aren’t the issue, per se, but rather how the money they raise would be used. If the plan is to set aside funds to improve the GTA’s transit network, so be it, but if it’s to help Toronto stave off a long overdue property tax increase or to help pay for pet projects of dubious benefit (i.e. the Scarborough subway), then they should be treated as, to quote Tory when he was PC leader, “highway robbery”.

• LETTERS • Let people decide on tax increase Re: Vaughan mulls over 3 per cent property tax hike, Nov. 8, 2016. Let the people decide what they want. Vaughan councillors are once again contemplating a 3 per cent property tax increase, which is similar to last year's increase. Certain councillors have argued that not increasing property taxes would lead to a reduction in services provided by the city, which they feel residents are not willing to accept. My request: let the residents decide if they want an increase in their taxes to fund additional services. City Hall should consider putting this question to a referendum/plebiscite for the people to decide. We live in a democratic

society, so why not allow residents of Vaughan to have a say on this important issue? City councillors believe that residents will not accept reduced services, but why not directly ask the residents themselves? The question is simple: more services = more taxes, fewer services = lower taxes...Vaughan residents, you decide. Being a city councillor is a very difficult job. I can truly appreciate how councillors get countless requests from vocal residents to provide more and more services. Vaughan residents have a huge appetite when it comes to wanting/demanding additional services. I have heard of residents requesting permanent bathroom fixtures in all city parks, having defibrillators in every floor of every municipal building in the city or

even extending Pine Valley drive. All of which, no doubt, are worthy causes. However, residents must keep in mind that these projects come with a cost. I understand that this year's municipal budget is calling for the addition of 41 full-time staff positions, which includes an intergovernmental relations specialist and a manager of community engagement. There is also increased spending proposed on city street lights, cycling and pedestrian options and restoring the tree canopy. Are Vaughan residents willing, or in some circumstances even able to pay more taxes, to support these initiatives? The average Vaughan resident is busy raising their families, trying to cope with increased hydro rates, higher water bills, higher grocery bills, and

increased price of gasoline coming in the new year. Do the residents have it in them to give more in property taxes? The recent election in the US, as well as the Brexit vote in the UK earlier this year, should send a clear message to all governments. Citizens' voices need to be heard! Elected officials do not have a mandate to impose policies that most residents do not need or even want. I respectfully request Vaughan city council to let the people decide if they want to pay more taxes to fund these additional services. Giovanni Moscardelli Vaughan

The fundraising campaign for Vaughan's new hospital is rolling along, but it may pick up speed now that a team of cycling enthusiasts plans to throw its support behind the cause. Team Revolution, which has raised about $1.7 million for Humber River Hospital, wants to add Mackenzie Health Foundation and Sunnybrook Hospital's Project Saving Legs to the organizations it supports. Formed in 2011, the team consists of more than 85 novice, intermediate and elite cyclists who compete in a Granfondo race in Italy every two years. While members hail from across the GTA, the majority live in Vaughan or have companies based in the city, co-founder Frank Ciccolini said. "A lot of us are connected in the construction and building community and we're predominantly of Italian heritage, hence our love of cycling," said Ciccolini, who grew up in Kleinburg and is a partner with Masters Insurance in Concord. "To join the team we pushed two obligations on the rider. One was to get in shape and train all year long ... and then

second, or maybe first, your obligation was to raise at least $5,000 for the Humber River Hospital either by making a personal donation or by engaging your friends, family and business associates to make an online contribution towards the hospital." The team trained for a year before tackling its first Granfondo in the Maranello/Modena area of Italy in 2012. Sixty of its riders took part in that race and raised $425,000. In 2014, 69 Team Revolution members tackled the Granfondo Scott in Piacenza, outside of Milan, and raised $650,000. This fall, 73 cyclists competed in the Granfondo Italia in Terracina and, so far, have raised more than $505,000. During the off years, team members participate in local events to support other charities while also raising funds for Humber River Hospital, Ciccolini said. With three successful races behind them, the team's executive decided it was time to give members more options for allocating their fundraising dollars, hence the plan to add Mackenzie Health Foundation and Project Saving Legs, Ciccolini said.

she said in an email. "We receive many more proposals than there is available funding and each application is carefully evaluated through an equitable process. All applicants are made aware that it is a competitive process and there is no guarantee of funding." Proulx is surprised the housing help centre, which has been operating since about 1993, and the ID clinic, which began in 2002, lost funding after so many years. "They said my proposal that I wrote did not score as high as other proposals they had received," she said, adding the centre employs five people including her. "After I heard that we didn't get funding, I really didn't hear a lot after that other than my proposals didn't score as high." The housing help centre helps low- and moderate-income York residents find housing and refers them to other services. "We can assist them in connecting them to food banks and clothing, resources and furniture and all those other services that they need to support themselves," Proulx said. "Even once they get housed, clients continue to rely on us because they call us and say 'I'm behind on my rent or I can't pay my hydro bill or I don't have any food or I don't have any clothing and where do I go?'" There are about 14,000 people on the region's waiting list for subsidized housing. That leaves lower income residents scouring for a modestly priced place to live in a region where the average rent for a bachelor apartment is $815 a month, compared to $1,036 for a one-bed-

room, $1,194 for a twobedroom and $1,357 for a three-bedroom. Even when clients find housing, the centre often works with them to ensure they remain housed, Proulx said. When a report on homelessness was released last month by the region and the United Way of Toronto and York Region, officials spoke about the importance of ensuring the marginally housed keep a roof over their heads. Meanwhile, the ID clinic pays the processing fees for lower income residents to obtain necessary documentation such as birth, marriage and death certificates, social insurance numbers, Canadian citizenship certificates, health cards, immigration papers and Ontario photo ID cards. Identification is necessary to obtain a wide variety of services, from applying for social assistance and accessing food banks to getting health care and registering children for school, Proulx said. Staff recently assisted a homeless client who was receiving a monthly $300 street allowance. While filling out paperwork for him, they realized he turned 65 this month and is entitled to a monthly allowance of $1,750, Proulx said. The ID clinic also acts as a mailing address for the homeless and marginally housed, she said. The Community Legal Clinic of York Region, which offers legal support to lowincome residents, often refers clients to the housing help centre and the ID clinic, community legal worker Kim McKinnon said. The loss of the programs will be disastrous for some of the region's most vulnerable residents, she said.

A man dubbed the 'king of car thieves' has been arrested, once again, this time for allegedly running a $5 million organized crime group engaged in everything from stealing Nutella to importing cocaine and perpetrating warm-up thefts. Bill Dhaliwal, 60, who owned a car garage on Hanlan Road in Woodbridge, has been charged with a slew of offences including trafficking, commissioning an offence for criminal organization and possessing a firearm. He was arrested along with 22 others - including his son, Kevin, and his wife - many of whom police say he's associated with through the criminal underworld. This group, made up from people across the GTA including three from York Region, was not only involved in car theft, drugs and fraud, but also kidnapping, police allege. York police, on Nov. 11, warned a Vaughan developer about a plot to kidnap him by three alleged members of Dhaliwal's group. Investigators said the men planned to dress up as undercover police officers pull over the 'wealthy'

victim then Taser, bound and gag him, before delivering him to another location and demanding a $1-million ransom for his return. However, police arrested the men, with the help of wiretaps, prior to the alleged plot taking place. Once in court, the three men who allegedly wanted to commit the plot were themselves photographed by an unidentified man in the court's gallery. Police are not revealing the victim's name. The car-theft probe, dubbed Project Cyclone, began in March after two high-end cars were stolen from the same York Region driveway while warming up. Once the shop, where the cars were taken, came onto the police radar, Det. Sgt. Paul LaSalle said the investigation witnessed a huge range of crimes committed, the widest he's seen in his 30-year career. That included the discovery of 60 cars worth about $3.4 million, the most expensive of which was a $340,000 Lamborghini. "The owner was very glad to get that back," Det. Sgt. LaSalle quipped. Also located was $200,000 in cash and some $2,000 allegedly buried in Dhaliwal's backyard, investigators said.

The group was allegedly shipping the stolen cars abroad to places including Dominican Republic and Guyana. Some of the vehicles that remained in Canada and had the VIN numbers changed to match legitimate ones from similar cars in the United States, police said. In those cases, investigators added, fake paper work was drawn up to make it appear the cars had been shipped to Canada. In other cases, Det. Sgt. LaSalle said, thieves were renting cars, having fake keys made then returning them only to steal the cars from rental car lots. The group was also alleged to have been renting stolen high-end cars to criminal associates, police said. As for the $30,000 worth of Nutella, police said a truck load was stolen then sold for about 50 cents on the dollar. Also stolen were e-cigarettes, alcohol, including crates of Moosehead beer, investigators added. Busts uncovered two guns along with small amounts of cocaine, heroin and marijuana. "If there was a profit to be made, they jumped on the opportunity," LaSalle added.

Woodbridge chef’s healthy food helps fuel TFC’s success

Vincent Ebuen works as a sous chef for the soccer club ADAM MARTIN-ROBBINS amartinrobbins@yrmg.com Toronto FC fans would, no doubt, be thrilled to get the chance to hang out and swap stories with star striker Sebastian Giovinco or hometown favourite Jonathan Osorio, but for Vincent Ebuen it's just a typical day at work. The 35-year-old Woodbridge resident works as a sous chef for TFC. "(The players) will come say, 'Hi, good morning,' and let us know about their day and we'll let them know about our day, which is pretty cool," Ebuen said during an interview at his home. "It's basically like a family atmosphere at TFC. Even Giovinco would come say hi ... and we'd have a little chit-chat about a game he played." Ebuen, who immigrated to Canada from the Philippines at age eight, grew up in Toronto cooking alongside his father and making meals for his two younger brothers.

His first experience working in a restaurant came in Grade 11 when he did a co-op placement at a high-end Italian restaurant. But Ebuen didn't find the idea of working long hours in a hot kitchen very appealing so he tried his hand at construction, then he tried business management. When that didn't pan out, he gave cooking another shot. He spent a year studying culinary management at George Brown College. In 2008, he landed an apprenticeship at Air Canada Centre. Ebuen spent five years learning his trade in the ACC's various restaurants; Air Canada Club, Hot Stove, Platinum. One of the highlights from his time there came when Ebuen got to spend a couple of months cooking breakfast for the Raptors in the locker-room. From there, he jumped to TFC as sous chef, where he does menu planning, food ordering and cooking alongside head chef Elaine Flamenco to ensure the players eat healthy meals that taste good, so they perform at their peak out on the pitch. "My favourite part of the job

Metroland file photo

Norovirus is a highly contagious viral illness that comes on quickly and usually resolves within 24 to 48 hours. There norovirus. Antibiotics are most viral infections. is cooking food that I like to cook and trying to make it healthy for

the players - giving myself that challenge of I know what I want to cook, but how do I make it healthier," he said. You might assume cooking for elite athletes, some of whom earn millions of dollars, would be more pressure than working in a posh restaurant; not so, Ebuen says. "You would think it's more intense because of the guys, but it's not," he said. "They're a very humble group of guys who would eat anything as long as it tastes good and as long as it's healthy for them." And the hours are a lot saner too, he noted. There are some other perks to the job, too, Ebuen said. For instance, when the TFC squared off against the Impact in Montreal for Game 1 of the MLS Eastern Conference final Nov. 22, Ebuen and his colleagues from the kitchen were in the stands. TFC President Bill Manning had invited the kitchen staff to come along, rented them a bus and hotel rooms. "Where in the life of a cook can you do that?" Ebuen said. "As a fan, it was awesome."

AdAm mArtin-robbins amartinrobbins@yrmg.com When Matthew Newman's dad encouraged him to stow away his iPad and focus on something more constructive, he took up the challenge with gusto. And a local charity got a big boost as a result. Newman, a Gr. 4 student at Immaculate Conception Catholic Elementary School in Woodbridge, hosted a fundraiser at Cavallino Wine Bar Nov. 17 to support Caritas School of Life, which offers programs for people with addictions and mental health disorders. About 80 people attended the event and Newman raised more than $5,100. "I feel good that I'm helping people with these mental illnesses," he said. "It feels good helping people and getting to know them better and starting to know how charities work." Newman, 9, selected Caritas because he wanted to support an organization "you don't hear about that much" and doesn't garner as many donations as institutions such as SickKids hospital. With help from his parents, Newman garnered several sponsors for the event and collected prizes for a raffle.

Mike Barrett/Metroland

Matthew Newman, 9, organized a fundraiser in support of Caritas School of Life, a residential program for the recovery and rehabilitation of addictions and concurrent mental health disorders, which was held in Vaughan on Thursday. He also spent $500 of his own money to buy an iPad mini to raffle off. Newman says he learned a valuable lesson through doing charitable work. "It's important to help people," he said. "Everybody makes mistakes and I can help people with their mistakes." Michael Tibollo, chair of the Caritas Foundation, lauded Newman's efforts. "One of the things we're really concerned about is ensuring, early on, there's awareness surrounding addiction and the comorbidity with mental health issues such as depression, anger, anxiety," he said. "To have a young kid come along

and hold a fundraiser, aside from the financial benefit we get as an organization, it kind of brings awareness and brings it home to much younger audience that, number one, there's someone out there who wants to help and, number two, that there are organizations that can provide help if someone is experiencing issues." Newman's dad, Kam, hopes the success of this initiative will spur his son to do more. "It was a good start," he said. "I think kids today barely have part-time jobs, so getting involved at a younger age hopefully leads to a little bit more responsibility across the board."

AdAm mArtin-robbins amartinrobbins@yrmg.com Between rising property value assessments, soaring water rates and escalating hydro costs, many senior citizens are worried they'll no longer be able to afford to live in Vaughan. That's what councillors heard from a handful of residents during budget talks Monday night. "The reality is, with the policies that you are pursuing you are driving seniors out of their homes," said Gerry O'Connor, who came primarily to express concerns about the "outrageous" 33 per cent increase in his hydro and water bills this year. "I submit to you, if you keep going the direction that you're going, you're going to have a revolt on your hands." Serafina Tripodi pointed out many seniors are concerned, given this year's reassessments, that if property values rise dramatically, they won't be able to afford their taxes. "The values of our homes

have gone up quite a bit, in the city of Vaughan especially. So they're saying is there going to be 40 per cent increase? A 50 per cent increase?" said Tripodi, chairperson of Seniors Focus. "I know most of us are worried, even myself. ... But we're having seniors that are like 80, 90 and they've had these homes forever and now they don't know what's going to happen to them in the next year." City finance staff explained this year's property reassessment will only result in significant tax increases for those who see their homes' value rise more than the average increase in Vaughan, which isn't likely to be the case for many homeowners. Mayor Maurizio Bevilacqua told Tripodi that while some seniors may be struggling to pay their bills, they also own homes worth substantially more than what they paid for them. "(They're) saying we had a home that we bought for $350,000 and now it's worth $700,000 and I have a problem," he said. "If you were to tell a

DEC 1ST THRU TO DEC 7TH

young person today, that A: they could buy a home (and) B: that it will grow over 100 per cent (in value), they'd be extremely happy with that prospect. I know it's a home that they've (seniors) worked really hard to earn. ... But the reality is this, that when you have a home that is worth more, in a wealth equation, at the end of the day, you are richer." Tripodi responded: "They're saying we have $1 million house ... but for us to afford to live in it, we can't sell it brick by brick, we've gotta sell the whole house, and then where are we going?" Vaughan homeowners are now facing a 2.9 per cent property tax hike for 2017, which works out to about $40 for the average homeowner. That's been chipped down from the original projection of 3 per cent, or $43, as a result of a change in how much the city expects to reap from property assessment growth next year. Councillors are slated to approve the 2017 budget at a special council meeting Tuesday, Dec. 13.

11 Critical Home Inspection Traps to be Aware of Weeks Before Listing Your Vaughan Home for Sale Vaughan - According to industry experts, there are over 33 physical problems that will come under scrutiny during a home inspection when your home is for sale. A new report has been prepared which identifies the eleven most common of these problems, and what you should know about them before you list your home for sale. Whether you own an old home or a brand new one, there are a number of things that can fall short of requirements during a home inspection. If not identified and dealt with, any of these 11 items

could cost you dearly in terms of repair. That’s why it’s critical that you read this report before you list your home. If you wait until the building inspector flags these issues for you, you will almost certainly experience costly delays in the close of your home sale or, worse, turn prospective buyers away altogether. In most cases, you can make a reasonable pre- inspection yourself if you know what you’re looking for, and knowing what you’re looking for can help you prevent little problems from growing into costly and unmanageable ones.

To help homesellers deal with this issue before their homes are listed, a free report entitled “11 Things You Need to Know to Pass Your Home Inspection” has been compiled which explains the issues involved. To hear a brief recorded message about how to order your FREE copy of this report call toll-free 1-800-324-3520 and enter 1003. You can call any time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Get your free special report NOW to learn how to ensure a home inspection doesn’t cost you the sale of your home.

How to Negotiate the Best Price When Buying a Brand New Home YORK REGION - Although most homes for sale are resales, one out of four homebuyers purchases a new home. Which is better: existing or new? The right answer, of course, is up to you. Both resales and new homes offer advantages. Existing homes are less expensive on average, and are generally closer to, and enjoy the warmth and surroundings of established neighbourhoods, often with mature landscaping. New homes, on the other hand, offer innovative use of space, greater energy efficiency and choices of options and upgrades. Everything is new and modern. Most people consider both new and existing

homes before they decide to purchase. A new, special insider report entitled “New Homes - 10 Tips to Save You Time and Money” has just been released which identifies 10 invaluable tips to save you time and money when purchasing a brand new home. Also revealed are little-known buyer advantages that most builders may not tell you.
