This video was shot when I was feeling really lonely and missing my colleagues! Local realtors are like my family, so I had to break the social distancing rules and pay some of my friends a visit - I just couldn’t help myself. I miss being in the office with other agents, connecting with realtors in person as deals take place. I had a blast catching up with my colleagues; sorry if I missed you, I will catch the rest of you in the coming weeks!


If you like this video please give it a thumbs up, and subscribe on my youtube channel for more!

Your home is your haven, especially during this time of social distancing and self-isolating. So what’s the best way to go about ensuring our house is clean? More importantly, how can we minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus? As a top realtor in the City of Abbotsford, we want to ensure that our clients are receiving proper information, not just on homes for sale in their area, but more importantly, staying safe right now.


Consumer Reports has provided a list of common household products you can use to ensure your home is clean and safe. You can check out this list via their website.


In addition, the CDC has excellent 'how to' guidelines on how to clean a variety of surfaces, for example;

"Hard (Non-Porous) Surfaces:

  • Wear disposable gloves when cleaning and disinfecting surfaces. Gloves should be discarded after each cleaning. If reusable gloves are used, those gloves should be dedicated for cleaning and disinfection of surfaces for COVID-19 and should not be used for other purposes. Consult the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning and disinfection products used. Clean hands immediately after gloves are removed."

And please remember: when picking up cleaning supplies from the store, a little goes a long way! Only buy what you need in order to make sure there is enough on the store shelves for everyone.

We are often being asked if we are currently in a seller's market, or buyer's market right now. Most importantly, we want to ensure that it is a safe market.

With the economic landscape quickly shifting, people’s employment situations are changing, many lenders are offering mortgage payment deferrals if needed… Where does one start? This subject can easily feel overwhelming, but our friends at Browne Mortgages have got you covered! 


If you have a trusted mortgage advisor please call them for updates; but if you don’t:


The financing experts at Browne Mortgages have compiled a list of banks offering mortgage deferral plans, as well as their contact information.

Mortgage payment deferrals can help you during times of financial hardship — loss of employment due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

The deferral is an agreement between you and your lender. It’s also known as a mortgage payment deferral agreement and is considered a temporary measure that in most cases does not affect your credit rating as it has been agreed to by yourself and your lender ahead of time.


Global News recently reported: "Before deferring any payments, financial experts say to check with your lender about their deferment options to make sure they are available. Generally, defaulting on payments would hurt your credit score, however, if you were given the green light you should be okay.

If a lender has given you permission to make payments, without penalizing you, then they should not be reporting that to your credit bureau, so you want to make sure you’re checking your credit regularly,” said Kelley Keehn, FP Canada Consumer Advocate."

The mortgage deferral agreement does not cancel, erase or eliminate the amount owed on your mortgage. At the end of the agreement, you will have to resume payment according to your regular payment schedule.


If you have been preapproved, be sure to talk to your broker about mortgage rates and interest rates today.

There are a number of questions that you need to ask yourself when you are deciding whether or not you should rent out your property. Short term? Long term? How do you feel about being a landlord, maybe for the first time? A little bit of pre-planning and preparation will get you and your rental property in the shape you need to enter the rental landscape.

It's All In The Setup!

Long term or short term, there are some definite tasks at hand that need to be taken care of in order to ensure the safety and happiness of your renters:

  • Entry: is your system for entering the home, either by traditional key or remotely via the many available apps all set up and operating smoothly?
  • Are your washer and dryer, dishwasher, fridge and all appliances down to the toaster in optimum working condition? Think like your tenant. When you rent a vrbo or Airbnb on vacation, you want everything to work.
  • Cleanliness is key, and a major factor in short term rentals, in determining repeat business and recommendations.

    If you plan to set up your rental as short term, take these steps to ensure maximum satisfaction for your tenants:
  • Pictures  - they say a thousand words and will go a long way in affecting your vacancy rate.
  • An inventory of what is on hand in your home. Provide an entire list on your site so that renters don't have to wonder.
  • Nearby recreational amenities and your favourite spots to eat and shop!

Determining Your Rate:

You will first need to understand how much rent to charge to make sure you are covering your costs — mortgage, property taxes, insurance, utilities. You will also want to ensure you have a fund set aside for maintenance and general upkeep to keep your rental in top condition. Will you be hiring someone to take care of cleaning services or tackling this on your own? You will need to determine that rate and ensure it is also covered. Be real with your time. It might seem like an area to save money but do you have time to clean your rental every time someone goes in and out?

A simple way to ensure your rates are competitive are to check online on other rental sites. For a longterm rental situation, Craigslist and Kijiji will work, or Airbnb for short term rentals. You may also consider a property management company, but keep in mind that there is a cost involved for this convenience.

Caution: ensure that you have all of the necessary insurance in line for both short and long term rental situations. You may also want to consult with a lawyer to understand your legal liability.

 

Being a Landlord:

There are key personality traits of a really great and successful landlord, be it one who is managing short or long term rentals. Good communication skills, efficiency with time, reliability, being resposible, acting with honesty and integrity, being well-organized with keen attention to detail. Keep in mind that a good landlord will have good tenants. The care and attention that you put into your renters will be reflected in the quality of tenants you will have, as well as the care that will be shown for your home by your tenants. Acting with the above qualities will go along way to ensuring a successful landlord-tenant relationship for you both.

Short Term vs. Long Term Renting:

Which is best for you?

Short-Term Rental: GO FOR IT!

  • Live in a tourist hot spot? Your nightly income will be much more lucrative!
  • Feel like taking your own getaway? Block off time to use your property for your own vacation!
  • Potentially less wear and tear on your rental property

Short-Term Rental: BE AWARE:

  • You will need to re-furnish and clean on a frequent, regular schedule
  • Competition from short term rentals in your area
  • More to manage, more often

Long-Term Rental: ABSOLUTELY!

  • Regular pay and monthly income - reliable tenants with less turnover
  • More monthly bills are paid by your tenant
  • Furnished long term rentals are much less typical

Long-Term Rental: HMM MAYBE NOT:

  • Less control over the property - long term tenants can potentially be harder on the wear and tear of a home and access to the home to view any damage may be difficult to obtain.
  • Lag time in between tenants - finding the right tenant is difficult and when a great one moves on, it will take time to replace them - are you financially ready for the downtime?
  • The eviction process can be difficult and it is important to understand both your own and your tenants' rights.

You may have to experiment with both scenarios to understand which one is best for you. However, keep your eye on the prize - maximizing your return on investment is the name of the game!

There are countless reasons why we may come to a time in our lives when it will just make sense to downsize from the homes that we raised our families in, to a more financially and physically manageable space. Whether it is from acreage to a condo, to a townhouse to a condo, there are many variations on what your new happy space can look like. The task can definitely seem daunting, but there are steps that you can take that will have you breathing a sigh of relief rather than of discontentment. Here are just a few simple ways that will get you heading in this new and exciting direction!

Steps to take to make downsizing much simpler:

1. Why Delay? Get started right away!

Being rushed = being stressed. As soon as you make the decision to make the move, and even before you contact your local real estate agent, it is a good idea to start the process of purging items that don't bring you joy right away. Also, give your family the time to decide if there are pieces of furniture they would like to incorporate into their homes. Take it slow so that you can avoid the feeling of being overwhelmed.


2. Start Small.

If you have raised 3 kids under your roof, you are bound to have what feels like a million sets of sheets, and an unnecessarily high amount of towels. Will you need all of this in your new space or can your new linen closet get away with being only 1/3 the size of your current one?
Speaking of linen closets - this is a perfect place to start. Start in the rooms where there are items that you will have the least amount of emotional attachment to, or rooms that have large items that require selling, and that you won't want to be moving on your own such as the garage.

3. No garage? No office? No problem


Revel in the fact that you might not need your lawnmower any longer - perhaps you have purchased a condo and strata will now take care of outside maintenance. Sell that lawnmower, tools and everything else that you used to need to keep the outside of your home looking perfectly groomed. 

Essentially you are looking to sell, gift, or donate any items that occupy rooms that you do not have in your new space. If you no longer have an office, where will you put office supplies? Think about the space that you now have not the spaces that you had.

4. One isn't the loneliest number.

3 flippers? 5 saucepans? 6 cookie sheets?  It's time for the clutter to take a hike.  Beautiful dishes and serving platters might be better off finding a happy home at a home that entertains often. Really take the time to consider what you will truly need in your day to day life in your new space.

5. Only make 'Yes' or 'No' piles — no Maybe's.

Be objective and absolute in your resolve to downsize your belongings. Do I use this daily? KEEP. Weekly? KEEP Monthly, or occasionally? BYE-BYE! Black and white is the only way to think in this case. If you start to think maybe, you will end up with a pile of goods that you will never use, and will be occupying valuable space in your bright new home. 

6. Don’t be afraid to sell things yourself.


From Poshmark to Craigslist, Ebay, Kijiji, as well as numerous Facebook groups to traditional yard sales and consignment shops, selling your valuables has never been easier. Be sure to weight out your time cost compared to how much money you are making by selling these items. Donations go along way with those that are in need!If you have a number of antiques or valuable items, it is a good idea to get in touch with a company that is familiar with auctioning these types of items. These pieces, after all, have been an investment over the years.

7. Enjoy the walk down memory lane!

You've held onto so much for so long. Every stuffed animal, elementary school drawing, and take me home from the hospital outfit holds so many memories. Enjoy the memories. This is why you held onto these items all of these years — to spark joy and memories of the best times in life!These items represent a life well-lived, and families well raised. You may no longer need to hold onto all of them, but take a moment, even take some pictures and take the time to remember great days your family spent together making these precious times.

The next step? Enjoy the knowledge that you are taking your next step with a clear mind and many less moving boxes than before you started the downsizing process!

We realize that, though we go above and beyond to give you a seamless selling and buying experience, there is no way to avoid the next step in the moving process - the packing. It can be daunting and overwhelming. Nevermind that you might feel like you are drowning in a sea of brown cardboard boxes, that will collapse when overfull. Sound fun? Not really!  This is exactly why we recommend FROGBOXes to our clients!

“Frogbox was created to fill a need for a convenient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative to using cardboard boxes for moving. Cardboard boxes are not an ideal solution for moving your home or business. They add unnecessary hassle and expense to your move. Our purpose is to make your move as easy and affordable as possible while minimizing the impact on the environment. We provide eco-friendly reusable moving boxes and other moving supplies. Cardboard and paper waste make up an estimated 18% to 26% of landfill material. When you combine this with the negative impact of logging to produce the cardboard in the first place, the environmental impact of cardboard is significant. Doing something good for the environment doesn’t have to cost more or make things more difficult—Frogbox makes moving Easier on the Earth and Easier on your Wallet.



HOW THE FROGBOX BOX SYSTEM WORKS:

1. Frogbox Drops off your Frogbox Moving Boxes

No need to drive to purchase expensive cardboard moving boxes! Frogboxes are delivered directly to where you need them by the friendly local Frogbox team.

2. Pack Up Your Stuff in Frogbox Plastic Moving Boxes and Move to Your New Pad

Frogbox’s eco-friendly plastic moving boxes make packing quicker and easier, and easier on the environment too!

Frogboxes are much easier to handle than cardboard. They stack perfectly, protect your valuables, are water-resistant and have ergonomic handles.

3. Your Friendly Local Frogbox Team Comes Back to Pick Up Your Frogbox Moving Boxes


When you are all unpacked and settled in, just give Frogbox a call! One of their Frogbox trucks picks up the plastic moving boxes at your new place. This means you can spend your time enjoying your new pad, instead of breaking down cardboard boxes and figuring out what to do with them!


While you are browsing the website, check out all the other products FROGBOX offers to make your move go smoothly. Please feel free to add additional items at your cost.

 

FROGBOXes are delivered to your pad, you pack up and move and FROGBOX picks them up from your new pad. It’s just that easy. Enjoy!

P.S. Did you know that when you sell your home and purchase a home locally with us, that you receive 50 Frogbox rentals at no charge? Now that is something to RIBBIT about!

You may have heard that a buyer’s market is the PERFECT market to purchase real estate for investment purposes. But have you ever wondered, and thought you should know, but have been too shy to ask…..who has a half a million dollars sitting around just waiting to be invested?! If you are like millions of Canadians, you don’t. So how are so many people able to invest in property and take advantage of this market and the low cost of lending that we are currently enjoying? Tapping into a Home Equity Line of Credit is the answer to building your real estate empire, and ultimately building your personal wealth.

KEY POINTS TO CONSIDER:

  • A HELOC uses the equity in a home to provide investors with extra cash for a down payment and the purchase of an investment property.

  • Ask us to refer you to one of our preferred Mortgage Brokers to guide you on your HELOC journey.

  • Accumulated a bit of higher interest credit card debt along the way? A home equity line of credit can also be utilized to consolidate debt.

Using a Home Equity Line of Credit  (often referred to as a HELOC), to purchase an investment property will allow investors to tap into assets, such as the homes that they are living in, that have managed to build up equity over a period of time. Rather than leave this equity untouched, homeowners can use a HELOC to do things such as upgrade their home, purchase a second or third investment property, or even consolidating debt. Understanding how to use a Home Equity Line of credit is crucial for anyone looking to build wealth through real estate investing.

WHAT IS A HOME EQUITY LINE OF CREDIT (HELOC)?

A home equity line of credit is a homeowner line of credit that is advanced based on the value of the property that is being used as security and typically is separate from your traditional mortgage. It is different than a regular mortgage in that the borrower is required to make an interest-only payment on the amount actually utilized rather than on the entire amount of the Line of Credit extended.

HOW TO PURCHASE AN INVESTMENT PROPERTY WITH A HELOC

In order to use a HELOC to purchase (investment) property, investors must first have an asset with enough equity to tap into - ie. you have a $300,000 mortgage on an $800,000 dollar home. When this kind of scenario exists, a HELOC becomes an excellent source of financing. This means you can tap into a percentage of your $500,000 equity to borrow for either a down payment on another home, debt consolidation etc.

- Investors can borrow money against the equity in one rental property to fund the purchase of another.
- Investors can use a HELOC to fund home improvements for their rental properties, just as a homeowner would for their primary residence.
- Investors can also use HELOCs to pay off other high-interest debt if necessary.
- Consider that rental property mortgages generally carry a higher interest rate, smart investors can get a HELOC on their primary residences to pay off the mortgages on their investment properties.

When speaking to a mortgage broker, a lender will look at your debt-to-income ratio, your credit score, other open accounts, and a homeowner’s overall financial health.

If utilizing the equity in your home to purchase additional properties and build real estate wealth is a new concept to you, and one that you are potentially interested in finding out more about today, please do not hesitate to contact Ranj, Dave or Jenn. We work with excellent mortgage brokers that will help guide you in discovering the amount of equity that you can put to work.
