10 Things to consider before your Mortgage Renews

When it comes time to renew your mortgage, it is very important to review all of your options. Roger and myself typically begin these talks anywhere from 1 year to 6 months prior to the renewal. Here are 10 things to maybe think about. 1- Have you explored all your options? Once you receive your mortgage renewal statement, there's nothing easier then simply signing on for another term. But while this may make sense in many cases, your family or financial situation may have changed over time. We look for opportunities that could better meet your needs right now. 2 - Are you comfortable wit your payments? If you've been feeling financially strapped each month making your mortgage payments, this could the time to reduce them to a more easily managed level. On the other hand, if you are earning more, why not pay down your mortgage faster and save thousands of dollars in interest over time. 3 - Do you need cash flow for other things? Your priorities may have shifted since you first bought your home, and your cash flow needs can shift too. Things like paying for a child's university education, planning a career change, or a major purchase such as a vacation property may call for spending money on things other than your home. You may be able to refinance your mortgage to take this into account. 4 - Can you handle fluctuating rates? Some homeowners are nervous about any hikes in interest rates. While others are comfortable to go with the flow. Rates are tough to predict. It's best to base your decision on your personal situation, not what you read in the news, and tailor your mortgage renewal around your needs. We can help you decide whether to opt for fixed or variable rates - and we don't want you to lose any sleep over your decision. 5 - Will you sell soon? If you are likely to sell soon, consider a shorter-term mortgage or one that has flexible terms so you’re not penalized if you sell your house before the mortgage comes due. 6 - Are you thinking about a major renovation? You know that projects such as a new kitchen or an addition can make your home more valuable, but the cost of having the work done can tie up a lot of money. Before you renew, look at all your financing options, which may include getting an additional line of credit or keeping your monthly mortgage payments low so you have money on hand to finance the renos. 7 - When do you want to be mortgage free? If you’re planning extended time away from work or perhaps an early retirement, it may make sense to pay down your mortgage sooner rather than later. While increasing your payments will raise your monthly costs now, you’ll ultimately save on interest in the long term and can prepare for that fabulous, mortgage-free lifestyle. 8 - Could you use your home equity to fulfill other goals? Refinancing a mortgage can be one way to free up cash you need for other things, which could even include buying another property. Mortgage renewal time is an ideal occasion to review all your options. 9 - Have your insurance needs changed? If your financial situation has changed since you first took out your mortgage, review whether you need the same level of insurance in place to cover mortgage obligations. 10 - Are you getting the best rates and terms? In a competitive mortgage environment, your good credit history can make refinancing work to your advantage. We have access to a very wide variety of lenders across the country, allowing us to always know where the best interest rate/term package can be found.

Top five home renovations that increase property value

Looking to increase your homes property value? Here are five of the best renovations you can do to your home to increase property value. These five renovations can sometimes have a return on investment 5-6x what they cost. #5 Flooring Flooring is one of the most important aspects of your house. You will see an immediate rise in property valuation with the installation of hardwood floors. Existing hardwood floors that you can refinish are ideal as they are less costly to restore and in higher demand than new flooring materials. For the bathroom, tile will always be in demand and retain value exceptionally well. #4 Fixtures Kitchens often look tired and dated, in large part due to old fixtures. Replacing or updating cabinet hardware, light fixtures, countertops and faucets will result in an immediate increase in your homes value. This small, but effective upgrade will also revitalize the entire home. Pot lights are in high demand in open concept style homes. #3 Bathroom Thebathroomis the second most important room in the home in terms of valuation. If you can add a three-piece bathroom to a home with only one full bathroom, you will see a dramatic rise in the market value of your home. While you should never compromise bedroom space for a bathroom, try sneaking one in dead space in the home. Scott managed to fit in a 3-piece bathroom under a staircase the width of the room measured just 44 inches. As an added tip, use glass for the shower to make the bathroom feel more spacious. #2 Kitchen Kitchens are the single most important room in the home relating to valuation. The kitchen can make a significant difference in the value of your home. As such, it is crucial that you invest in having a modern, fresh anddesirable kitchen. Modern cabinetry, under cabinet lighting and new appliances will all significantly increase the value of your home on the market. To save on cost without compromising construction and desirability, look at options like Ikea cabinets as opposed to custom cabinetry. #1 An Income Suite No surprise, but the single biggest way to increase the value of your home is to build an income suite within the property. Whether this is converting yourbasement into a rental, or another floor in the home, an income property will increase your homes worth. The main reason for this is that it covers a portion, or sometimes all of your mortgage payments, and results in your home being cash flow positive which creates real wealth that can supplement your income. sources:www.homeownership.ca; www.genworth.ca
