EDITOR’S NOTE

IT’S TIME TO BUY HOMEBUYING PROSPECTS ARE LOOKING UP

MARISA BARATTA EDITOR NextHome EMAIL: marisa.baratta@nexthome.ca TWITTER: @marisabaratta

It’s not news that there’s been an economic slowdown in Alberta that’s posed its own challenges over the past few years. But here’s what is new: homebuying prospects are looking up! According to a recent poll by RBC Royal Bank, prospective homebuyers in Alberta are the most confident in all of Canada. We can even say that homebuying intentions have reached their highest levels since 2010. This is thanks to improved housing affordability, employment growth, projected GDP growth and interest rates that, although higher than they were in recent years, are still low. And when it’s time to buy, the mortgage “stress test” can help ensure prospective homebuyers make informed decisions that fit their lifestyle and their budget. After all, the dream is to find a home that’s the right fit in all ways. For more tips on homebuying success and to read more about the poll’s findings, see page 22. And now that we’ve got a little bounce in our step, let’s put some oomph in our homes – with plants! Greenifying your home can purify the air and brighten up the space; check out page 46 for six low-maintenance plant suggestions. And if you’re interested in taking more action to reduce chemicals in your home, you can shop for eco-friendly cleaning solutions in your neighbourhood (page 24). With signs of spring both inside and outside our homes, and a country-wide confidence boost, it’s no wonder things are looking up!

ADVICE | BILD ALBERTA REPORT

NET ZERO HOMES CARMEN WYTON

When purchasing a newly built home, you may discuss ways to make it more comfortable and energy efficient with your builder. This would ultimately lead to discussions about windows, insulation and furnaces. These are all great areas to look at for a more energy-efficient home but what can you do if you’re still looking to take a step further? This is where you can take an intentional step towards reducing your environmental footprint by building a Net Zero home. NET ZERO HOMES

Quite simply, a Net Zero home produces as much energy as it consumes. Net Zero homes are up to 80 per cent more energy efficient than a home built to conventional standards and use renewable energy systems such as solar electric panels to produce the remaining energy the home needs. BENEFITS OF NET ZERO

The first benefit that comes to mind when considering a Net Zero home is utility bills. Living in a home that produces as much energy as it uses will significantly drop your utility bills and will keep them low all year round, creating savings over time. You will also be protected against any future energy price increases, which can give you peace of mind. To meet Net Zero levels of performance, your home will be 14  NextHome.ca  |  West

built using advanced construction methods and materials. Net Zero homes are tightly built with a better insulated roof, walls and windows to help make them as energy efficient as possible. As an added bonus, these materials will also drastically reduce outside noise. Exceptional heating, cooling and ventilation equipment will deliver even temperatures, creating a more comfortable home. A built-in filtered fresh air system will reduce drafts, dust, pollen and outdoor air pollution for exceptional air quality. All the features of a Net Zero home work together to keep you comfortable and to deliver outstanding energy performance. COST

Building a Net Zero home will likely cost you more than building

a conventional home. However, significant advancements over the past 10 years have reduced additional costs by as much as 50 per cent. And don’t forget you will save on utility costs for a lifetime! To learn more about the cost of a Net Zero home and to find a qualified builder, visit the Canadian Home Builders’ Association website at chba.ca Carmen Wyton is CEO, Building Industry and Land Development Alberta Association (BILD Alberta), the unified voice for the land development, home building and renovation industry in Alberta. bildalberta.ca

PROPERTY PROFILE

MORRISON HOMES OPENING SEVEN NEW SHOWHOMES THIS SUMMER An award-winning home builder whose name buyers have come to trust to provide quality craftsmanship, great features and smart designs is expanding into three Edmonton communities this summer, offering more opportunity for buyers to get into their fabulous homes. “We’re thrilled about our growth in Edmonton,” says Brenda Delurey, Edmonton marketing lead, Morrison Homes. “Having the opportunity to expand in existing 18  NextHome.ca  |  West

communities and one brand-new one is exciting for Morrison. By the end of the summer we will be in seven communities with more than 20 showhomes to visit.” Morrison has seven new showhomes under construction in three family-friendly communities in southwest Edmonton: Chappelle Gardens, Glenridding Ravine and Paisley at Heritage Valley, all opening this summer. Morrison is currently preselling in all three communities.

“Glenridding Ravine is Edmonton’s newest southwest community and we will have one front attached garage with the 2,043-sq.-ft. Montgomery and two laned showhomes – the 1,339-sq.-ft. Dexter and 1,521-sq.ft. Indigo – opening the beginning of July,” she says. Filled with tall trees and green spaces, this gorgeous neighbourhood presents an environment that is both exclusive and tranquil. Located near Rabbit


Cassidy

Dexter

Hill Road and Ellerslie Road, Glenridding Ravine is conveniently situated within the Windermere area – one of Edmonton’s most coveted addresses – and next to an array of new and exciting amenities, including Currents of Windermere and Jagare Ridge Golf Club. Morrison Homes will also open one front attached garage showhome – the 1,944-sq.ft. Cassidy – and two laned showhomes – the 1,574-sq.-ft.

Linden and 1,447-sq.-ft. Sonoma – in Chappelle Gardens at the end of June. Chappelle Gardens is located just off Ellerslie Road and minutes away from both Hwy. 2 and Anthony Henday Road, making it one of southwest Edmonton’s most sought-after new home destinations. Offering quick access to key points in the city, Chappelle Gardens boasts just a 20-minute drive to either downtown or

West Edmonton Mall, is close to everything you could need, and presents a welcoming atmosphere that encourages outdoor activities and interaction. Morrison Homes will also be building for the first time in a new phase of the established southwest Edmonton community of Paisley at Heritage Valley. Morrison is crafting the 1,772-sq.-ft. Harlow showhome and will have the sales centre portion open at the beginning of June with the full showhome opening at the end of June. Paisley at Heritage Valley was established based on two key principles: bringing people together and creating a neighbourhood that thrives on friendships and interaction, so residents will find a wealth of community spirit and familyfriendly features within Paisley. Morrison Homes offers styles and size for every homebuyer, from first-time to move-up, with its front attached garage, laned homes and duplexes. As well, with Morrison’s zero lot line product, buyers can have the house size they desire on a smaller lot at a more affordable price point. “If you’re looking for a home, visiting our showhomes is a great place to start,” says Delurey. “You’ll really get a feel for the quality of a Morrison home and get to know your potential new community.” Operating for more than five decades in the province, Morrison has become a community fixture, building quality homes and going above and beyond for clients. Morrison is a two-time winner of the Customer Insight HOME Award (in 2016 and 2017), which recognizes the best of the best, as rated by customers. For more information about the homes and communities where Morrison builds, buyers can visit and register online at morrisonhomes.ca APR 20 - MAY 18, 2018  19

ALBERTA RESIDENTS LEAD CANADA IN HOMEBUYING CONFIDENCE 37%

Atlantic Canada

23%

Prospective homebuyers in Alberta are the most confident in all of Canada, according to a new poll from RBC Royal Bank. Resurging confidence in the economy and employment is boosting homebuying intentions among Canadians to the highest levels since 2010, despite the federal government’s new uninsured mortgage “stress test.” In fact, according to the annual RBC Home Ownership Poll, one-third of Canadians (32 per cent) are very or somewhat likely to buy a home in the next two years, up seven percentage points from last year. Millennials (ages 18 to 34) express the strongest of those homebuying intentions (50 per cent). As intention to buy continues to climb in Canada, slightly more than one third (35 per cent) of Canadians indicated they would be receiving financial assistance from family for a down payment, while almost an equal number (36 per cent) plan to do it on their own with a dedicated savings account. “Canadians continue to feel optimistic about getting into the housing market despite changes in government regulations,” says Nicole Wells, vice-president, Home Equity Financing, RBC. “They’re taking a more informed journey to homeownership by starting with affordability. With the right tools and a detailed roadmap that navigates the journey, Canadians are better prepared to make one of the biggest decisions – and it’s based on facts, not emotions.”

TIPS FOR HOMEBUYING SUCCESS SCENARIO PLANNING While no one can tell what the future may bring, it’s important to test drive your nearterm homeownership plans. If you plan to have children in the future, buy a new car or own a business, make sure you have a few scenarios aligned with your dreams.

PERFORM YOUR OWN STRESS TEST While optimism about the job market and economy has increased, it can also lead buyers to feel overly optimistic about what they can afford. Perform your own stress test when determining affordability by testing what will happen if interest rates go up, or your income goes down.

USE ONLINE TOOLS With the variety of tools available, homebuyers today can make more informed decisions than in the past. From online mortgage pre-approvals to neighbourhood analyses, important information is at your fingertips before your home hunt even begins.

FUTURE-PROOF YOUR FINANCIAL LIFE Your home is more than just a place to live; it is an investment that can impact your future plans and finances. Whether you’re buying your first home or helping your children buy their first home, meet with an expert to get a better idea of what impact that will have on your longterm savings.

PLA N T PERFE CT IO N Floral designer Natalie Trivett, owner of Crowning Glory Decor, shares her top six house plants to help greenify your indoor space.

Plants and greenery seem to be everywhere these days. From living plant walls displayed in restaurants to tropical leaf print wallpaper and pillows in decor shops, plants are the new go-to design accessory. Wouldn’t you agree there is something so organic and soothing about incorporating natural elements into our living spaces? But, many struggle with cultivating their green thumb and worry about mass plant casualties. Can you relate? The key could be as simple as choosing the right plant for your lifestyle needs. Here are my top six low-maintenance yet wow-looking plants that your home will love.

RUBBER PLANT (FICUS ELASTICA) Details: Known for its beautiful, large, deep green leaves, it can grow to be quite large and act as a real focal point in any space. Care: Needs bright light but prefers indirect light that isn’t too hot. Placing it near a window that has sheer curtains is ideal. Soil needs to be kept moist. Once soil gets dry, definitely water it. Periodically wipe the leaves of your rubber tree houseplant with a damp cloth or spritz it with water. Leaves turning yellow or brown? Then you need to reduce the amount of water to avoid overwatering. Buy: homedepot.ca

SNAKE P L AN T

(sansevieria trifasciata) 46  NextHome.ca  |  Spruce Grove / Stony Plain


SPLIT LEAF PHILODEND R ON

(monstera deliciosa)

FID DLE LEAF FIG (ficus lyrata)

FIDDLE LEAF FIG (FICUS LYRATA) Details: This plant is definitely trending. The bright green leaves and neat pruning techniques make this plant highly sought after and photogenic. Care: Needs bright indirect light. Water your fig tree when only the top inch of soil is dry. It’s helpful to fertilize once a month during growing seasons (not during the winter). Periodically wipe the leaves with a damp cloth (some suggest using an oil, such as coconut, to maintain a shine on the leaves). Buy: Specialty and boutique flower shops, such as willemandjools.com or coriandergirl.com SNAKE PLANT (SANSEVIERIA TRIFASCIATA) Details: With its two-toned markings, interesting leaf proportion and durability, the snake plant is a great option for homeowners who want a great look without much effort. Care: Needs indirect sunlight and not much water, especially during the winter. It’s best to let these plants dry out between watering. Fertilize once in a while. Very low maintenance and sort of indestructible! Buy: ecostems.ca

SPLIT LEAF PHILODENDRON (MONSTERA DELICIOSA) Details: The large, stunning split leaves make this plant desirable and iconic! Care: Needs indirect lighting (it’s best within five to eight feet of a window). Keep the soil moist and water every seven to 10 days. This plant does not like to be moved around, so let it grow and flourish in one area of your home. Buy: dynastytoronto.com CACTI PLANT (CACTACEAE) Details: With some 1,750 known species, these unique-looking plants are user friendly and high on style for any space. Care: Cacti are ideal in direct sunlight; south facing light is preferable. Water well when soil gets dry during spring and summer months, water less during winter months. Buy: cactuskingdom.ca SUCCULENTS Details: Succulents have been trending for the last couple of years and continue to be an easy way to inject some greenery into a space. Care: Just like cacti, succulents are ideal in direct sunlight. Water well when soil gets dry during spring and summer months, water less during winter months. They should be given just enough water so that they show no sign of shriveling (be careful of over-watering!). Buy: westelm.ca

Toronto-based designer Natalie Trivett loves to bring the outdoors inside through her stunning, faux floral decor creations. She creates custom floral crib mobiles and floral centrepieces from the latest plant and flower trends, and her keen eye for design and style shines through. crowningglorydecor.com, @crowningglorydecor

4. INVEST IN PERENNIALS. Plant in rich, new soil rather than purchasing new plants every year. Chosen well, some grasses, bushes and trees can provide lovely texture and colour all-year round. 5. FURNITURE. Buy the best outdoor furniture you can. Consider it as an investment and definitely something that can withstand our extreme temperatures! 6. BRING ON THE LIGHT. Lanterns, candles, floor lamps. Layer your light with solar powered step lights, path lights, overhead chandeliers and even illuminated furnishings. 7. STORAGE. Very important to store your cushions and summer toys somewhere safe for the winter. 8. BRING ON THE HEAT! Overhead or tower heaters, fireplaces, fire pits, fire tables. Please be safe, check our city’s fire codes before you build a fire pit at: https://www.edmonton.ca/residential_ neighbourhoods/fire-and-safety.aspx 9. COOKING. Freestanding BBQ or an entire kitchen? Plan this space as you would your inside kitchen and you will have many years of enjoyment. 10. ACCESSORIES. They can take your back yard from hum-drum to spectacular. Make your back yard a destination this summer and enjoy the sun!

1. MAKE YOUR BACKYARD A DESTINATION. Budget for your yard like you do your interior, include the accessories that make it comfortable, like furniture and lighting. We tend to forget about the soft stuff for outside. 2. BE ECO-CONSCIOUS: Use less expensive pressure-treated lumber for structure. Incorporate environmentally-friendly materials like concrete, which is sustainable. 3. THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX. Run your fence boards horizontally for a contemporary feel, add whimsical statues, or hang outdoor artwork. Remember, less is more, bigger is better – don’t over crowd your yard with “small stuff”. Photos compiled are from websites that Marie shops at, various items chosen are befitting the mood and depict best choices for this article.

TIES

Designer Jo Alcorn breathes new life into a dysfunctional family room. The result? Cosy living space the entire family enjoys! by JO ALCORN 1. FOCAL POINT

The fireplace was the jumping-off point for this room. I converted the family’s gas fireplace to an electric one. Electric fireplaces have come so far in recent years, and it’s something I incorporate into almost all my designs now. For this space, I selected a Dimplex (dimplex.com) electric fireplace that appears so real, people have to look twice! I started with a style that would fit the room and then created a stunning built-in unit to surround it. To create the look, I used Metrie’s French Curves Collection (metrie.com).

artistically taken. These photos are some of the most cherished memories from this family and all we did was upload them to Posterjack (posterjack.ca). Then, with a few clicks of the mouse, we chose the frame style and size, and changed the photos to black and white. And, presto, they were delivered right to their home.

2. TECH TALK

this family of four. I chose an oversized sectional from Structube (structube.com). The great thing about this furniture is that it is super family-friendly and the prices are incredibly affordable. I was also able to add a side chair and a modern rocking chair. Since this company is so budget-conscious, I was also able to add in a gorgeous glass coffee table and raw wood side tables – all within my client’s budget.

To make this room multi-functional, I chose this amazing TV mount arm from Wayfair Canada, which allows you to pull the TV so that you can watch it from any seat in the room. I am obsessed with the Sonos (sonos.com) system, which I love having in my own home, so I naturally want all my clients to get it as well. The Sonos Playbar connects to the TV and makes everything sound better.

3. LET THERE BE LIGHT

For this room, potlights were not in the budget, but good lighting was a necessity. I chose lighting from Wayfair Canada’s (wayfair.ca) home improvement category, where we paired together two affordable ceiling lights to give the impression of one large track-lighting system in the room.

4. PERSONALIZED DETAILS

I love incorporating non-traditional and meaningful photos into a family’s space, especially when they are 50  NextHome.ca 

5. COMFORTABLE SEATING

This room needed ample seating that would work for

6. FINISHING TOUCHES

With all the key components in place, I went on a shopping spree at HomeSense (homesense.ca) to give this room the finishing touches it needed to be brought to life. I grabbed a multitude of throw cushions, side table accessories, pots and bowls, which gave it the elevated look I was aiming for.

THE LAST WORD

Q A WITH PERSONAL FINANCE EDUCATOR

KELLEY KEEHN

KELLEY KEEHN IS ON A MISSION TO HELP PEOPLE FEEL GOOD ABOUT MONEY. SHE’S A PERSONAL FINANCE EDUCATOR AND THE CONSUMER ADVOCATE FOR THE FINANCIAL PLANNING STANDARDS COUNCIL. YOU MAY HAVE READ ONE OF HER BOOKS OR HEARD HER SPEAK ON VARIOUS RADIO AND TELEVISION PROGRAMS. NEXTHOME SPOKE WITH HER TO LEARN MORE ABOUT HER TIPS FOR HEALTHY FINANCIAL PLANNING by MARISA BARATTA

52  NextHome.ca 


NextHome: There are so many financial tools out there. For those who’d like to manage their money better, where should they start? KELLEY KEEHN: Great question! We have a

wonderful website at the Financial Planning Standards Council (FPSC) – financialplanningforcanadians.ca. FPSC are the folks who certify financial planners on behalf of Canadians. There are nearly 100 articles and dozens of videos on a plethora of personal finance topics. We also have a tool to find a Certified Financial Planner anywhere in Canada at findyourplanner.ca. The Financial Consumer Agency of Canada also has some wonderful budgeting tools and calculators. See also getsmarteraboutmoney.ca and the investor tools on the Canadian Securities Administrators’ website. NH: On your website, you include helpful links to budgeting resources from your books. How might budgeting help someone save for a new home or pay off their mortgage faster? KK: Budgeting is so important but it’s not actually very easy for most people. It’s like a diet – if you feel deprived, you’re unlikely to stick to it for the long term. What I find works best is what I call my 30-Day Anti-Budget. It’s simple, fun and you can involve the whole family. All you need to do is track your spending for 30 days, then figure out your largest spending categories. Are they where you thought your money was going? Would you like to continue that way? It’s not about judgment or sacrifice – it’s about choice and awareness. You can have the chocolate cake and glass of wine, just not every night. If you multiply your 30-day spending by 12, you get an even clearer picture of where your money is going. And you might discover you could get that down payment saved sooner, contribute to your RRSP or even take a vacation if you just make some daily adjustments. NH: Financial literacy isn’t always – or often – taught in schools. As housing costs continue to rise, what can Millennials do to educate themselves in the realm of financial literacy and personal finance? KK: You’re right. We’re not taught and parents don’t always know how to teach their children, either. If someone was going to take up golf or start to watch hockey, it would behoove them to know that there are 18 holes in a game of golf, that a bogey is a bad thing, that there are three periods in hockey and that a hat trick is cool! The same can be said for Millennials looking to build their financial foundation – simply start with the basics. Get up five minutes earlier each

day and Google basic financial concepts so you ease into your financial literacy. Consider reading the business section of a newspaper each week, subscribe to a money magazine or start a Facebook money group to talk about all things finance. NH: Savings instruments come in so many shapes and forms (regular, TFSAs, RRSPs, GICs). Which factors should Millennials, homeowners and prospective homebuyers consider in regards to where to grow their savings? KK: This is why it’s important to sit down with their banker or Certified Financial Planner. A TFSA might be great for one person, but maybe for an older Millennial who has a great salary, putting their money into an RRSP and using the tax refund to save for their down payment and taking a homebuyers’ plan loan from themselves later could make sense. It may seem simple, but you want to understand the long-term benefits and drawbacks of each of these options. NH: A significant amount of banking is done online now. What are a few simple things homeowners and prospective homebuyers can do to protect themselves and improve cyber security? KK: Make sure you have all of your devices up to date, consider getting new ones if they’re older than three years old (because patches aren’t being made as completely), never log onto financial or access personal accounts when using public Wi-Fi, check your credit report often, and put credit and debit alerts on your accounts so you know in real time if a purchase is fraudulent or not. I wrote an entire book on the subject, so if you’d like to learn more check out Protecting You and Your Money: A Guide to Avoiding Identity Theft and Fraud. NH: There’s a lot of talk in Toronto and Vancouver about how difficult it is for today’s Millennials to afford a home, say neighbourhoods where they grew up. What advice would you give to Millennials looking to save up for a new home in their future? KK: It’s a different world and if homeownership is super important to you, you have to be flexible and creative. It might not be possible to live in that area. Or can you get creative and buy with several friends? Some people are doing this, but you have to make sure your legal agreement is rock solid. What about income properties and garage suites, or living outside of your ideal city? Will you hate the commute in a few years, could you and your spouse save big bucks if you bought close to work and could you both ditch your cars? You really need to try on all scenarios.
