           Interesting article on CanadianMortgageTrends.com indicating that the pandemic has motivated many young Canadians to buy a house. β€œThe pandemic has caused many Canadians to turn their living rooms into classrooms, their dining rooms into offices, and their basements into home gyms,” said , Head of Real Estate Secured Lending and Scotia Mortgage Authority at Scotiabank in a release. β€œThis is motivating many to consider investing more in their current homes or re-evaluating their living spaces altogether.”

In addition, the lowered rates when compared to the a year ago, now can save the average home buyer around 13,000 over a 5- yr mortgage period.

           So about 2 weeks ago I listed a house and the owners were wondering whether now was still a good time to list. We got 7 offers and it sold for over 40K above asking price.  So yeah…it a great time to sell

           Let’s tackle the age old questions: Is it better to get a fixed mortgage, or to leave it open? Lock it in for 5 years, or take a chance with a floating rate?

Mortgage Mike Schroeder of Mortgage Architects says:

           Even though the rates for an open mortgage are already lower than a fixed mortgage, buyers should consider that getting out of a fixed mortgage early can trigger significant penalties. 65% of home owners get out of their fixed mortgage earlier than expected.

           Today I’m talking about one of the most unique businesses you’ll ever find. It’s a local manufacturer, the brain child of an entrepreneur named Brian Ross. Innovation Fabrication is a metal fabricator who turns old shipping containers into just about anything you can think of.

Pools, popup kitchens and bar yard bars, man-caves and she-sheds and even pop up medical labs and testing sites.

We’re planning to have Brian on in an upcoming episode and tell us more. You can find the link to his website in the show notes

           I don’t always eat soup, but when I do…..it HAS to have meat in it. One of my favorites is this meatball, tomato and pepper soup. Its thick, hearty and has a little kick. You can use beef or turkey, and a link to the recipe is in the show notes.
