EDITORS’ NOTES

i

f you are looking for a new rental this summer, consider doing it sooner rather than later. Vacancy rates are exceptionally low these days in many markets, and with house prices rising and steady population growth, there are many people in the market looking to rent in a prime neighbourhood in a great building. Renters Guide is a great source for helping you find the perfect place to call home – so sharpen your pencil get ready to source the many listings and property management companies in this issue. As with any major monthly expense, it is important to do your homework before you venture out to shop the market. Know what you need and what you want. Know the answers to the following questions beforehand: • What monthly payments would I be comfortable with? • How long do I plan on leasing for? • What locations will I consider? • Does the rental property cover my needs in terms of parking, transit and other key considerations? Once you have determined this check list, be sure to shop around and compare apples with apples. The more you see, the quicker you’ll be able to determine the place that suits you best.

word on rent. Do you ever pay your rent late? A day? A week? A month? Late rent is a serious issue. The Residential Tenancies Act specifies that rent is considered late the day after it was due. Just a day or two might not seem like a problem. For most, a late payment is a small oversight or a rare occurrence. But be aware, repeated late rental payments are actually grounds for eviction. The landlord expects the rent just as any business expects payment for goods and services. You can’t tell a restaurant you’ll be back to pay the bill in a few days, and shops don’t let you take your merchandise with a promise of paying in a few weeks. The rental industry is a business. Rent money isn’t simply a profit. Rental properties have overhead and expenses. When you pay your rent, you are paying the property managers and owners to look after all of the building’s details, from property taxes to working elevators to staff wages. By paying late, you’re affecting the building’s financial footing, plus creating additional work for the management and/or landlord because now they need to contact you to follow up. If you have a problem or know your rent will be late, discuss it with them. There may be an arrangement that will satisfy both parties. But wait too long or pay your rent late too often and you may just face an eviction notice. You’re going to find the perfect apartment and we’re here to help! Our magazine and website, TheRentersGuide.ca, offer the best selection of available apartments, informative articles and advice, making it easy to make your move!

Term vs Permanent

INSURANCE B Y GAI L VAZ -OX LADE

P

eople think insurance is a ripoff and expensive. It doesn’t have to be. Let’s use the example of $300,000 in insurance on a man (since they’re more expensive) who doesn’t smoke. If you were to buy a 20-year term policy, protecting your family from age 25 to 45, the premium would be only $287 a year, or less than $24 a month. Hey, we’re talking a case of beer here. Wait until you’re 39 to buy the same policy and your costs go up to almost $400 a year, which isn’t exactly a budget killer, unless you want a permanent insurance TheRentersGuide.ca policy. Then the difference in the numbers is more significant. Buy a permanent policy at 25 and you’ll pay about $1645 a year or $137 a month. Wait until you’re 39 and the price goes up to $3025 a year or $252 a month. TheRentersGuide.ca

So, is term insurance better than permanent (whole life or universal) insurance? Whether you buy“term,”“whole life”or“universal life”insurance will be dependent on two primary factors: the amount of insurance you need, and how long you need that insurance to be in place. Term insurance provides protection for a predetermined period of time (perhaps 5, 10, or 20 years) or until a certain age. However, many term insurance plans end at a specific age, such as 65, 70 or 75. With men and women living considerably past that age, if you’re looking for longer-term protection, term insurance won’t cut it.

TheRentersGuide.ca With term insurance, when the term of the contract expires your coverage ends unless you renew the term. Each time the term is renewed, TheRentersGuide.ca


the premium is adjusted upwards. So on the term policy above for the guy who bought a 20-year term at age 29, if he needed to renew for another ten years, the premium would jump from $304 to $552. Think of term insurance as an expense, like rent. While it will give you comfort and peace of mind, it accumulates no residual value. If you want coverage to last your lifetime or want to use insurance to build assets, term insurance isn’t the right choice. Term insurance is cheaper than permanent insurance, but that’s because the statistics are in favour of the insurance company with term insurance. With permanent insurance the company is going to have to pay out, it’s only a matter of when. Whole life and universal life insurance are permanent, remaining in place until death. With whole life policies, the insurance company does the investing. (People debate that they don’t do a very good job of it, but they are purposely conservative, and with the recent swings in the market, you can see why.) With universal life, you have much more control over the types of investments the money is going into. The premium is generally the same for the life of the policy, so the annual cost can be low if taken early in life (when the risk of death is low), or very high if taken late in life. If term insurance is rent, then permanent insurance is a mortgage payment; in the early years there isn’t a lot of asset accumulation, but over the long term the pot will grow nicely. Most whole life policies have a “reserve,” which can be refunded if you cancel the policy before your death. This reserve is referred to as the cash value of the plan. You can also borrow against this cash value at an interest rate set in the policy. However, if you haven’t paid it back, the money owed will be deducted from the death benefit. So, back to the question,“What kind of TheRentersGuide.ca insurance should I buy?”The best place to start is with the amount of coverage you need. Let’s say you’ll need $125,000 to pay off your mortgage, $5,000 to

cover your funeral expenses, $15,000 to cover legal and accounting bills, and an additional $100,000 to cover the capital gains your estate will be hit with. All together, you’ll need about $245,000. Buying a policy with a lower payout clearly won’t serve your needs. The next thing to look at is how long you’ll need the coverage. Some of your needs may be short-term. Declining term insurance is often the most cost-effective way to cover mortgage debt. On the other hand, the need to meet your funeral expenses and minimize the tax hit on your estate is permanent. So permanent insurance will be your best bet here. Remember, since the premium on your permanent insurance will remain the same, while the premium on term insurance will rise each time the policy is renewed, the cost of term insurance will appear far less expensive in the early years of a policy. Compare the lifetime cost of both types of policies (remember to compare similar features and benefits – apples and apples), and then make your decision. Another interesting fact: with some policies, you can buy the right to convert

your term policy to a whole life policy at a later date. So if you decide to start off with term insurance to protect your young family, and then decide to convert to a whole life policy when your needs change and you have more money, your health won’t be a factor in setting the premiums. However, your age will be and the older you are the more your insurance will cost. Shop around when looking for life insurance. Get several quotes, make sure you’re comparing apples with apples, and buy the policy that best meets your needs. Resist the urge to over-buy, but don’t sell yourself, and your family, short either. Evaluate your future earning potential and your family’s ongoing needs realistically, take inflation into account, and then buy enough insurance to meet your needs.

into saving money

FIND YOUR HAPPY PLACE

S

kip the latte. Bring your lunch. We have all heard the examples of how to save money by cutting back on discretionary spending. They’re all good ideas, but even with the best of intentions, some people have trouble controlling the impulse purchases. FIND YOUR HAPPY PLACE If it’s tough to muster up the self-control not to spend when you have money in your account, trick yourself into thinking you don’t have the money to spend. “If you have trouble saving because you’re a chronic spender, make your savings automatic,”says Raymond Chun, a senior vice president at TD Canada Trust.“When you transfer small amounts to your savings account regularly, you may not even notice a difference in the money you have to spend day-to-day, but will see a big difference as you watch your savings grow.”

F

Chun offers his adviCe on how Canadians Can “triCk themselves” into saving: » Save it before you see it: A pre-authorized transfer of a portion of your paycheque into a tax free savings account (TFSA) or to another high-interest savings account will help you put money aside before you see it or get a chance to spend it. » Save every time you spend: Some banks offer programs that allow you to automatically transfer a small pre-set amount into you savings account with each debit purchase or ATM withdrawal. That means every time you buy your groceries or pay for gas, you could be saving without even trying. » Know what you can spend: You should aim to save at least 10 per cent of your pre-tax income. So, once you have automated your savings and covered bills and other financial obligations, you can treat yourself with the knowledge that you are responsibly setting aside money for the future. Watch your account balance carefully, especially in the first few months of the automatic transfers, to make sure you don’t spend more than is available. NC

Brides & grooms

combining households for the first time by Dan Hopkins

F

irst-time brides and grooms are older than ever before, according to recent census figures. The median age for men marrying for the first time is now 28 and it’s 26 for women – that’s 30 per cent older than in 1960. Because many first marriages are occurring later in life, the modern dilemma is whose couch stays and tallying how many flat-screen TVs the couple has between them. For the “new couple” combining households for the first time, proper planning is key to starting off on the right foot in the early years of marriage. Here are some helpful tips for combining households for the first time: » Go through each existing home together, and identify which items are duplicates. Talk about each item honestly – if you can use two of something in your new life together, like televisions or stereos, keep both. » Do the same evaluation for small items, like silverware. These smaller items can add up quickly, and often produce the most clutter. » Organize with boxes and coloured markers. Purchase a variety of box sizes before you begin so you can appropriately tag and box the “keep” and “donate” items, and the “toss” leftovers.

PAGE 28 • Tell Them You Saw It In The “Renters Guide”

» Think about donating to those in need. If a garage sale isn’t of interest, consider donating to local charities, homeless shelters or The Salvation Army. Experts agree that couples can successfully blend two households if they take time to address the move. The key to success is proper planning.

Just Starting Out? Renting is Your Best Choice By Jane Herman

TheRentersGuide.ca

TheRentersGuide.ca

If you’re a young single professional, or a recently married couple, there are many good reasons why you should choose to rent instead of buying TheRentersGuide.ca your first residence. TheRentersGuide.ca


At this stage of your life, you may be finishing up your education, paying off student loans, or just beginning your first job(s). It’s not likely that you will have even accumulated enough cash to use as a down payment. One of the many advantages renting has over home ownership, is that there is no large down payment to be paid up front. You only have to come up with your first and last month’s rent. And despite the message of real estate marketers who try to convince you that you can own a condominium or home for the same price as renting, here’s the truth: renting is always substantially less than owning. While it is possible that monthly mortgage payments might be comparable to what you’d pay to rent, as an owner you will also have to pay property taxes, all maintenance expenses (either monthly maintenance payments in a condo, or all costs of repairs and maintenance from appliance repairs, to landscaping, snow shoveling, etc. in a house). Many apartments include utilities or hydro in the rent, and when owning you would also have to pay an additional amount for these services. What about insurance? Tenants’ insurance is always less expensive than the cost of insuring your own home. At this stage of your life, flexibility is most important because you are very likely to move again within the next three to five years, either to take another job, go back to school, or because your family is growing and your needs are changing. It’s much easier to make a move when your only obligation is a one-year lease. TheRentersGuide.ca The hassle and expense of having to sell your home would unnecessarily complicate any career move.

Some bankers and real estate professionals will try to convince you that with renting you’re not building equity. But when you factor in all the hidden costs of buying and selling real estate, from commissions, to legal fees to land transfer taxes, etc. , the reality is that no condo or house is going to appreciate that much in the short term to offset those hidden costs. If you are lucky enough to actually have enough cash accumulated to use as a down payment on a house, keep it in a secure two or three year term investment with a good return. When you run the numbers you will be much further ahead three years down the road than if you had invested it in a condo. The other good reason for renting at this stage of your life is that renting can offer all of the benefits of living in a prime neighbourhood – one that you likely couldn’t afford to buy in – such as convenience to transportation, shopping, recreation facilities, etc., along with condoquality amenities such as fitness

facilities, concierge, indoor/outdoor pools, etc. decorating upgrades, spectacular kitchens and bathrooms, etc. at a price that won’t leave you cash-strapped. With renting, you’ll be able to save a little every month, for emergencies, travel, retirement, or have a little more disposable income for furniture, a car, clothing, and entertainment, which is also important to you. When you consider all the advantages that renting affords, you’ll see that your dream home is really an apartment!

Loss prevention:

T

Insurance is great, prevention is better

hey say that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Think of insurance as the cure (sort of) to a number of bad things that could happen to you or your family. Yes, if you have a fire or a theft, insurance will help you pick up the pieces. But most people who have lost their homes in a fire – even those with great insurance coverage – will tell you that they would prefer if it had never happened in the first place. Insurance gives you financial peace of mind. If you have the right coverage, no theft, fire or accident can leave you broke. However, there are certain things that insurance cannot fix. If your wedding ring or a priceless family heirloom is stolen in a break-in, insurance may cover the actual market value of the item, but the sentimental value cannot be replaced. If you suffer a fire and all your family photos are destroyed, you will feel a tremendous loss, even though the photos have no monetary value. Insurers are in the business of compensating people when they suffer losses. Being so close to so many human tragedies, insurers are passionately

committed to loss prevention. They know that it is better to avoid suffering than to try to make up for it. If your home is uninhabitable for a period of time, you may need to move to a hotel or even a new, likely furnished, apartment. Some home insurance policies will cover additional living expenses you incur during this time, such as meals (if you are in a hotel) and room charges. Be sure to ask your insurance representative if you have this type of coverage, so that if disaster strikes you can focus on putting your life back together without worrying about the added costs. The Insurance Bureau of Canada offers information for consumers to help make them aware of their insurance needs and assist them in understanding the types of insurance available. They are the national industry association representing Canada’s private home, car and business insurers. Its member companies represent 90 per cent of the property and casualty (P&C) insurance market in Canada. For more information from the Insurance Bureau of Canada please visit ibc.ca.

Get organized by spring

cleaning the bedroom by yanic simard

PHOTO BY TED YARWOOD

It’s your favourIte tIme of year. It’s time for spring cleaning, which means it’s time to clear the clutter and get organized! Bedroom organizing is often last on the list because it’s a room that not many people see, but it should really be a priority because having this room under control will make your life a whole lot easier. And I’ll admit it TheRentersGuide.ca – usually I’m the one who procrastinates until I have no choice but to do it! There are so many hiding spots and creative storage ideas for those items that don’t have a “home.”

TheRentersGuide.ca

Under the bed What’s under your bed? If your bed doesn’t have fixed drawers already, make your own “closet on wheels” by attaching casters to wooden boxes. Paint them or stain them to match the colour of your bed to make them disappear into the furniture. electronics drawer Dedicate one drawer in one of your night stands to charge your cell phone, MP3 player, headset and the like. Cut a small hole in the back of the bedside table to feed wires of the chargers through, and be sure there is an outlet close by. Close the drawer and the mess is gone!

TheRentersGuide.ca Jewelry & accessory storage There are many beautiful jewelry boxes and holders that look great on a dresser, if you’ve got the room. If you consider yourself crafty, try making your own! TheRentersGuide.ca


PHOTO BY lEni jOHnsTOn

DIy Project All you need is an old cabinet door and some kitchen cabinetry hardware: knobs, pulls and hooks. Mount the assorted hardware to the cabinet door as you please and voilà! It’s a beautiful display piece for necklaces, which can hang on the knobs, earrings can rest on the pulls, and bracelets can dangle from the hooks. Mount it to your wall and it can double as artwork. umbra’s Little Black Dress (pictured above) is another smart and savvy way to store your bling. Shaped just like your little black dress, it’s got clear pockets all over it for storage, and it can all be hung in your closet – out of sight, our of mind, until you need it! the power of pegboard Vertical space is often wasted space, and in the closet there is a ton of it! Installing pegboard to the walls in your closet will give you so much added storage you never even knew you had. Add hooks or nails to the pegboard, which will serve as spots to hang your belts, purses and scarves. Paint the pegboard the same colour as your walls for a seamless look. seasonal clothing It won’t be long before the summer clothes will be coming out, which means the winter clothes will need to be stored away. Have you ever thought of using your travel luggage as a storage place for these bulky items? When the seasons change, do the switch! it’s all an illUsion

TheRentersGuide.ca Taking five minutes out of every day to complete simple tasks in the bedroom like making the beds, keeping drawers and doors shut, and neatly folding linens and clothes. This will make your bedroom appear to be a lot more organized and a lot less cluttered.

GuacamoLe auténtico Leslie Styles, foodie & travel aficionado, shares some delicious dishes found on her travels around the world.

G

uacamole dates back to the Aztecs, who referred to it as ahuaca-mulli which translates roughly as avocado sauce or avocado mixture. While there are many variations, traditional Mexican guacamole has only a few ingredients: avocado, onion, jalapeño chiles, fresh tomatoes, cilantro and salt, brightened with fresh lime juice and plenty of zest. Of course, the real secret to great guacamole is good avocados, and Haas – the purplish-black variety with a bumpy skin – is considered to be the absolute best variety for making the richest, creamiest full-flavoured guacamole. However, to make Guacamole Auténtico, a traditional Mexican mortar and pestle, or molcajete, must be used. Made from lava stone, molcajete are available in many fine cookware shops.

Directions

› Zest and juice the limes into a medium bowl. Slice the avocados in half, skin, pit and then dice the avocados. As you dice each avocado, add it to the bowl and toss to coat with lime juice they don’t brown. Add the tomatoes, onions, cilantro, jalapeño, salt and pepper and stir to combine well. Don’t be tempted to mash the avocados. Leave fairly chunky. Serve with tortilla chips and a cold Margarita or good beer.

2 5 W S

inGredientS makes about 4 cups

› Juice and grated zest of 2 limes use a microplane to zest the limes › 4 ripe Haas avocados › 2 plum tomatoes, seeded and diced › 1/2 small red onion, minced › 1 cup chopped cilantro › 1 tsp canned jalapeño peppers, drained and minced › 4 very big pinches of salt › A few grinds white or black pepper
