TGIF - Clients are invited to our RE/MAX Skating Party at Planet Ice this Sunday! Plus, your week in Real Estate News - we've got you covered.
It's that time again - time to say Hi to many of our clients and their families as they take to the ice this Sunday (Jan. 22nd) at our private RE/MAX party at Planet Ice from 2:15-5:00pm. We love connecting at this event and seeing how much those children have grown since we last saw them! There is food, face painting and balloon animals for off-ice activity. Please come and say hello if we don't catch you among the arrivals. If you have not yet registered, please give us a call at (604) 936-7653. We are looking forward to seeing you, and have included here some cute memories from a previous party.
Good news for those of you with variable mortgages & lines of credit - the bank rate did not go up this week and shows no signs of any upward trend in the near future. Bad news for those coming into the market requiring CMHC insurance - it is increasing substantially - effective March 17 this year. CMHC quotes an average of $5 per month increase on mortgage payments. For those with 5% down, buy before March 17 and avoid having the increase chew up your equity. We can connect you with experienced mortgage brokers for more detailed information and explanations.
As with every day, not just Friday, we have you covered.
