    Great question! Home ownership can be a reality in CANADA whereas in most other places around the world, it would be a dream.Owning a home has advantages; per-

    sonal enjoyment, never having to move unless you want to, and never being a subject to a third party deciding on where you live. As far as a money pit is concerned, home ownership does have some downfalls financially as there are constant expenses. Costs associated with the home are sometimes upgrades a homeowner chooses to have as well as necessities that a home may require. Again, some costs can be planned while others are surprises. The great thing in CANADA is that any gain that we have on our personal home is tax free. Home

    Is buying a home an investmentor a Money Pit?By Joseph Cartagineseownership can therefore become an incred-ible investment in the long run. In fact, our maturing population is utilizing this gain (new found cash) to help with retirement.If you make the right choice in the home

    you are buying, then the financial positives along with the enjoyment factor can greatly outweigh the seeming money pitfalls. As with most decisions in life, it comes to the right planning and research.

  • Eerie e-vites set the tone for partiesPlanning a Halloween party? Email invites are perfectly acceptable for a casual soire. Send out e-vites a few weeks ahead of time to give friends and family plenty of notice. Be sure to mention that costumes are encouraged, and list any other important details, like if the party is potluck style. The best part of email invites is youll receive RSVPs electronically, so you can track responses and get the perfect amount of party supplies for all attendees. And if you have an Outlook.com email account, you can flag RSVPs to the top of your inbox for easy reference, and instantly chat with friends on Facebook, Skype or Gmail to firm up last minute details, right from your inbox.

    Scary inbox? Organize email easilyIf your inbox is a scary sight, its time to tap your magic wand for an organization transformation. With Outlook.com, its easy to sort through hundreds of messages in a few clicks. You can use the sweep feature to get rid of outdated emails you dont need, like all those costume coupon deals that have expired.

  • Market Watch*King Township

    September Sales

    *source: TREB 2014

    Back to school brought a slow start to September. King Township ended up with a grand total of 24 homes sold. The average price of a detached home was $1,068,643 this is still above the average for the year. Detached homes were on the market for an average of 56 days whereas the year-to-date average is 48 days.

    Evidently, the inventory of homes in King Township is low despite the fact that available detached homes rose to 169. It is clear that the nature and exceptionality of higher valued properties requires a little more time to sell as op-posed to other lower markets. King Township remains in high demand and, as a result, has limited inventory.

    September was a steady month and we look forward to increased activity in October.

    M y first introduction to Paper Crane was at Behind The Mask of LMS Fundraiser where they had a sushi station. We couldnt have enough, presentation was amaz-ing and the sushi melted in my mouth. During the evening I imagined who they were. I was surprised to find out it was catered by Paper Crane in King City.

    The following Saturday we went for dinner. We were greet-ed immediately; service was outstanding from the begin-ning to the end. We delighted in a dinner with miso soup and salad. It was a very pleasant experience in King without having to drive downtown for sushi. I recommend this experience to all.
