You may have heard that the cost of purchasing a home is going to increase as of June 1st due to an increase in CMHC fees. DO NOT FRET! There is no need to abandon your dream of home ownership. You can still buy a new home. The truth of the matter is that the increase only affects a few people in the entire marketplace. FACTS: • If you read through the article fully, you will notice that the increase only applies to those buyers with less than a 10% down payment. •CMHC is not the only mortgage insurer out there! So if you fall into the smaller percentage of people, such as many of the first time home buyers, who do not have a 10% or more down payment, your lender ( mortgage broker ) can apply to Genworth financial for mortgage insurance. •CMHC has been slowly trying to back away from supplying mortgage insurance but are attempting to do so in a gradual manner so that other insurers & the public have time to adapt. The Real Estate & Mortgage industry, & those that closely follow both industries, have been aware of this fact for several years now.

Dartmouth Trivia - Some history about the other side of the Halifax Harbour

As many of you know, I was posted from my origins in Ontario to CFB Shearwater in 1992. I took one look at the ocean & decided that I was HOME. My wife & I love living in Dartmouth & are proud to call this wonderful community in Halifax home. I am also a fan of history. Recently, I read & shared a blog that I found interesting regarding lesser known facts about our provincial capital of Halifax. So I thought I would create one about our fair city on the “other side of the Harbour”. M
