Three Tips for Holiday Home Security

"Over the river and through the woods, to grandmother's house we go ..." Or maybe for your family, holidays signify a cruise to tropical destinations or a chance to hit the slopes at a ski resort.

Wherever you're heading this holiday season, keep your home safe in your absence with these three simple tips:

1. Keep the lights on.

Pick up a few inexpensive light timers. By programming different lamps or light fixtures to come on at different times, you can create the illusion that someone is home.

2. Lock it up.

Double-check all window and door locks to confirm they're still operational and effective.

3. Be neighbourly.

Tell your neighbours about your travel plans, making

How The Boomers' Record Inheritance Will Impact Real Estate

About 10 years ago, a study suggested that baby boomers were about to inherit a trillion dollars. Many boomers have already received their inheritance and it's one reason why the country's real estate boom has lasted so long.

But a new report by Benjamin Tal at CIBC Economics, based on a survey by Angus Reid Forum, says that during the next decade there is still about $750 billion to be transferred to Canadians aged 50 to 75 in the largest intergenerational wealth transfer in Canadian history.

Tal says that guessing how much money will be inherited is tricky.

"Most estimates are based on forward-looking questions, asking potential beneficiaries what they expect to receive,"

Clean Out Your Closet And Help A Charity

When you clean out your closet (or your whole house), the "donate" pile can get pretty big. But there's no need to worry about lugging everything to a donation centre. Clothesline will send a truck right to your door to pick up your gently used clothing, electronics and small household items for free. The proceeds will go to the Canadian Diabetes Association (CDA) to support its research, education and advocacy programs.

Each year, Clothesline, a national Canadian program, raises more than $10 million and diverts more than 100 million pounds of clothing and household items from landfill sites across the nation, something else donors feel good about.

The CDA started the program in 1985 as an

 Spots of red in the trees and a slight chill in the air can only mean one thing. It’s time to put away our flip flops and nestle into a new season: Autumn.

When it comes to selling your home you need to have potential buyers at “Hello”.

You want the first impression of your home to say “Come on in! If you think this looks great, wait until you see the rest!”beautiful-curb-appeal-exterior-design-idea-37798740[1]

The condition of the lawn and landscaping, the driveway, the garden, the windows, garage door and front door can be a deciding factor for a buyer before they even step out of their vehicle. Some buyer’s may not even get out of their vehicle if they don’t find the front of a house appealing. You could have every bell and whistle indoors, but how will they ever know?

Take an objective look at the front of your house. Stand at a distance, perhaps across the street from your home. How does it look? Take a quick snap shot. Take a good like

It's that time of year again, but this year is something a little more special than what we've had in the past..

IT'S CANADA'S 150th BIRTHDAY!

However, make sure you're getting out the door as early as possible though. Those parks will fill up fast this year, and I've personally been turned away once already at the Bruce Peninsula National Park. So make it out early!

Spending time in our lovely home of Georgina this weekend? Make sure you stop by the ROC this Saturday, July 1st. They will be hosting so many family friendly activities this year. Canada's own Urban Slide will be propped up and ready for

Remember Baby-Proofing? Welcome to Age-Proofing! More and more people are choosing to stay in their homes after retirement. More and more people are choosing to live out their lives for as long as possible in their own homes. People are living longer, living healthier lives and technology and access to care has made aging at home possible. Living independently is far more desirable than moving to a retirement home.

Aging is a reality for all of us and as fit and active as we are, our physical and home comfort needs do change as we get older. If you’re nearing retirement, have recently retired or perhaps you’re continuing your career longer (lots of people are delaying retirement too!), it’s a good idea to think about some customization of your
