Women are no longer waiting for “Mr. Right” before purchasing their first home. It’s becoming increasingly apparent that a greater number of women are taking the reins when it comes to home purchases. There’s a growing trend among single women, especially professional single women, to become independent homeowners. Across B.C. and Canada, recent reports show that females are more likely than men to be first-time homebuyers. More often, women are not waiting for “Mr. Right” and marriage before moving into their own home.

The more prepared you are the smoother the experience will be, so do a little research and make a list of questions to ask your mortgage broker and realtor.

Changing market conditions have triggered a shift in the Canadian homebuyer mix and mindset. Of those purchasing homes in the next two years, 18 % are single, of which almost 45% are female—confirming suspicions that women now represent a considerable force in the market.

As a mortgage professional with Dominion Lending Mortgage Negotiators, I have access to the best rates in Canada. Don’t limit your options – give me a call today!

Interest rates continue to be the lowest they’ve been in history and will eventually start to climb. There has never been a better time for women to make the decision to get into the real estate market - to find the perfect place to call home.

Women are looking for ways to become financially independent, and investing in real estate and building equity is a good move. An interesting notion is that we’re getting more advice before we make the decision to enter the market, taking the initiative to consult a mortgage expert and get the facts associated with making the purchase and securing a mortgage. Women are taking advantage of the current economic conditions and recognizing homeownership is often more affordable than renting. Buying a home is likely one of the largest purchases you’ll ever make in your lifetime, and it can feel overwhelming. That’s why working with a professional mortgage broker, real estate agent, home inspector and so on, is essential. You’ll be working with these professionals closely – possibly for months – so you need to feel comfortable with whom you choose.

Downtown Redevelopment Enters Implementation Phase After nearly a year of intensive planning and community involvement, the final report on the Mission City Downtown Action Plan was issued in late June, 2013. Its sixty-two pages cover a multitude of both challenges and solutions, many of them driven by local participation in public and stakeholder workshops. In fact, a surprisingly large number of Mission residents showed their support for the process, and their opinions were very much taken into account. Planning strategies for Mission started with the Five Fundamentals of a successful downtown: a multi-modal transportation system; a mix of high density land uses and activity nodes; a high quality public realm, parks and open spaces; addressing social needs and community issues and; creating economic conditions for successful development. The report goes on to recommend ten major changes to the status quo - what it calls “10 Big Moves” - to be implemented over the coming years. These include taking back ownership and control of 1st Avenue and relocating truck traffic and transforming 1st Avenue into a pedestrian-oriented Retail High Street. The “10 Big Moves” also include enhancing the public open space networks connecting existing and future key destinations to improve pedestrian comfort, convenience and safety, as well as creating a public park in the Downtown that provides green amenity space for residents and visitors. Also included are incentives to encourage private development of residential and commercial buildings that improve the overall viability of Downtown. For a more detailed summary of the Downtown Redevelopment Implementation, view the November edition of BIZenews, Mission’s economic development newsletter at www.missionbizenews.ca. And, as we expect more exciting news in the New Year, once you are there,

If you are over the age of 65 it is recommended that you have your eyes checked every year. There are several medical reasons for having your eyes checked. - During a regular eye exam the blood vessels and nerve tissue of the eye are studied. This gives an indication of what is going on throughout the rest of the body’s vascular and neural systems

- Diabetes, high blood pressure and other diseases

can cause bleeding in the back of the eye which is often not detectable by the patient and can lead to vision loss

- Increased pressure inside the eye can lead to Kristoffer Goos

glaucoma and with it peripheral vision loss and potential blindness - Certain medication can have an adverse effect on the eye and need to be monitored, sometimes even more often than once a year.

Equally important to the annual eye exam is the need to come in right away if you notice any loss or change of vision. Many problems can be corrected if caught early.

HOW TO WINTERIZE YOUR HOME Even though we are well into winter, it is never too late to properly winterize your home. The following steps will help you keep the heat in your home, and money in your pocket. Most of the procedures are inexpensive and easy to perform. With the cost of energy on the rise, these simple fixes will more than pay for themselves in future savings. Check your Heating The easiest way to do this is hire a heating specialist, but if you are on a budget here is how to do it yourself.

Protect your Plumbing Frozen pipes can rupture and cause major damage to your home. Prevent this by:

- First and foremost, check your filter. Inspect it every month but only change it if there is noticeable build up.

- Using electric pipe covers, foam sleeves, or insulating pipe-wrap in any area where pipes will be exposed to freezing temperatures.

- Head to the attic and check out your ducting. If there are any kinks or poorly crimped ends, replace that section. If there are holes in the ducting, patch them with metalsided tape rather than duct tape because metal tape lasts longer.

- Cover exterior taps with Styrofoam covers and unhook any garden hoses. Miscellaneous tips

- Vacuum out your floor register vents as far as you can reach.

- Buy a programmable thermostat to turn off your furnace at night or when you are away from the house.

- You can also vacuum out the blower section of your furnace; just make sure it is unplugged before attempting this.

- Keep your gutters clean of debris to prevent ice build-up.

Seal in those leaks Up to 40% of a house’s heat can be lost due to air leakage. This loss can be reduced by doing the following: - Use caulking or sprayfoam to seal around fireplaces, doors, and windows. - Inspect weather stripping around doors for wear or poor installation and replace where needed.

- Clean your chimney. - Reverse the direction of your ceiling fans so they force warm air downwards and better circulate the air in your home. - Inspect your smoke detectors with actual smoke (incense), do not rely on the ‘test’ button. - Insulate your hot-water tank by using a heat reflective wrap.

- Use heat-sealed coverings to insulate single pane windows and doors. - If you have condensation between the panes of your windows, this means the seal is defective and needs to be replaced. - Take a look in your attic and make sure that the insulation is still snugly secured between your rafters. Replace if there is any visible damage or poor installation. Keep the cold out - Use caulking and/or foam gaskets to seal all exterior light fixtures, outlets, vents, or any other space that may be in your siding or foundation. - Pro-tip: Hold a piece of incense and walk with it 2” away from your baseboards. The end will glow brighter and the smoke will noticeably drift away from any droughts. Caulk where any leaks are found.

Recipes from the Blackberry Kitchen Bananas Foster The dish was created in 1951 by Paul Blange at Brennan’s Restaurant in New Orleans, Louisiana. It was named for Richard Foster; a friend of Owen Brennan’s who was at the time New Orleans’ Crime Commission Chairman. It is still served at a number of fine restaurants in New Orleans as well as in many restaurants around the world.

Ingredients 4 fresh bananas, peeled and cut in quarters lengthwise 1/4 cup unsalted butter 1/2 cup dark brown sugar sprinkle of cinnamon 3oz dark rum 2oz banana liquor 4 scoops vanilla ice cream

Cherries Jubilee This recipe is generally credited to Auguste Escoffier, who prepared the dish for one of Queen Victoria’s Jubilee celebrations, though it is unclear whether it was for the Golden Jubilee of 1887 or the Diamond Jubilee in 1897.

Ingredients 1 x 14oz can of cherries in syrup 1/4 cup unsalted butter 1/2 cup light brown sugar Pinch of salt Juice from 1/2 lemon 1 TBSP cornstarch 3oz cherry brandy or brandy 4 scoops vanilla ice-cream

Directions 1, Pre-scoop ice cream and keep in freezer until needed. 2, Melt butter in a large fry pan, add sugar and cinnamon. Heat until bubbling and sugar is dissolved. 3, Add sliced bananas to the pan and cook until lightly browned. 4, Add rum and banana liquor, bring to a boil. Carefully ignite with a long wooden match or a lighter with a long barrel. Flame will burnout in approximately 15-20 seconds. 5, Present around pre-scooped ice-cream balls.

Directions Melt butter in a large fry pan, add sugar until dissolved. Add cherries, salt, lemon juice. Use cornstarch dissolved in cold water if needed to thicken sauce . Carefully add cherry brandy, bring to a boil. Carefully ignite brandy with a long wooden match or a lighter with a long barrel. Flame will burnout in approximately 15-20 seconds.

Discover the fortune hidden in your business If you are a business owner either looking to get out or reduce your obligations to the company, you are not alone. As the baby boomer bulge retires with 70% of owners looking to sell or transfer within the next 5 to 10 years, timely exit planning will prove to be invaluable down the road. At a time when many business owners are waiting until conditions improve before planning their next move, those who plan beyond the current challenges will inevitably be in a position to get more out of their life’s hard work.

My name is Madison and I am 7 years old and this is my story. When I was 4 years old I woke up one morning and I was covered in huge hives from head to toe. The doctors said I had “Idiopathic Urticaria” which means hives for no known reason. I was placed on 3 different medications and was told I would probably grow out of it. One night I woke up with my tongue and throat feeling funny so I was rushed to Emergency and was diagnosed with “Angiodema” which causes my fingers, eyelids and bottoms of my feet to swell. Every time I got excited, sad, worried or sick I would swell- basically, every birthday, Christmas or special occasion. The doctors suggested using adult strength Benedryl along with my other meds to help the swelling (that’s a lot of medicine for my little body). My dad happened to walk into FUEL- Mission Store, and told Dolph about me. Dolph suggested his “Dolphin” Alkaline water. We drank the water as a family and I started to notice that I wasn’t breaking out as much and eventually I didn’t need any meds. For 6 months I was symptom free until we went camping and it started again. The only thing different was that we didn’t have the Dolphin Water. We started drinking the water again and 4 days later I stopped swelling. THANK YOU DOLPH for helping me to be a HEALTHY little girl.

C’mon get HEALTHY 5 things you can do to get healthy in Contributed by Wendy Weymann

2014...

Go outside – If you start to feel blah in the winter months going outside will help you feel better. I know it’s cold & rainy all the time here in Mission, put on your rain gear & go for a walk. Even if you only get outside for 10 minutes the fresh air will make a world of difference. Mission has lots of hiking trails including the trails at Heritage Park & the Hayward Lake Railway trail. Have fun – Laughter is the best medicine! Figure out what brings you joy & then do it. I have a few friends who send me funny texts & it really makes my day. 2 other sure fire ways to make me smile: watching Ellen or listening to Mackelmore (what, what). What makes you smile? Eat more fruits & vegetables – We all need to eat healthier but often think we need to go on a cleanse or drastically change our eating habits. Instead of going hard on a healthy eating regimen that will last 1 week try eating more fruits & vegetables every day. If you’re having pizza peel a few carrots & eat them with your meal, take fruit in your lunch to work, slice vegetables & leave them on the counter so when you’re hungry you eat some veggies before you dive into the snack cupboard. Yoga – If you haven’t tried yoga yet what are you waiting for? From stress reduction to weight loss yoga is good for you. If you’ve done yoga before & need to get back on your mat ask yourself this question “what would motivate me to show up to a class?” Meditation – All the scientific research is pointing towards one thing: meditation is extremely good for you. If you want to get healthy by reducing stress, anxiety, depression or negativity meditation is a fantastic place to start. Wendy Weymann is a yoga instructor in Mission, BC who specializes in meditation. • She lives in Mission with her family. www.wendyweymann.com
