For those of you who do not know me I am Sarah, a mortgage agent for My Better Mortgage. In 2007 I gained a diploma in Hotel Management where I went on to work in the retail and customer service industry for 10+ years and have retained a certification in customer excellence. Growing up with parents who were entrepreneurs I always felt a need to follow in there foot steps. So when Rachael presented me with the opportunity to work with her helping families and individuals, while growing my own business, I jumped at the opportunity. This was hands down one of the easiest life decisions I have made. Rachael gave us the opportunity to better my families financial future and help meet our long term goals. With my passion to help others and there families how could I say, NO! I am a mom of four young girls and I understand the importance of maintain, growing and exceeding your financial goals and gaining freedom. I had my four girls Payten 7, Abigail 6, Kylie 3 and Keaghan 3 in 5 years. The hardship of trying to maintain financial freedom while providing for our family was always a major stress point, as it is for most families. I understand what it is like to walk into a bank with not having the best credit score, as it is hard at times for young families to maintain PERFECT CREDIT and left feeling defeated. That feeling your goals are dreams out of your reach. My advice is to never give up. When I called Rachael I was already waiting for the NO on the other end of the phone. Like most after the 2nd NO you figure it must be true, this wont happen for me. So when I finally heard YES! it was emotional and surreal. I am committed to giving other this same opportunity to hear YES, the feeling that your dreams will finally become your reality.
I want to say THANK YOU to my wonderful Husband who for the past 12 years has supported any and all my career choices. When telling him that I wanted to JUMP into the world of Mortgages he smiled and said yes dear. He made sure every night after he had worked all day that I had a quite place to study (which is a difficult task in our household with 4 girls under the age of 7) and cheered me on after I passed every quiz. When I wrote the Mortgage Agent exam I came home feeling defeated, unsure that I had passed. He said to me you got this. His support has been unwavering and made this transition from Retail Manager/Stay at home Mom to Mortgage Agent easy. My Second THANK YOU goes out to my parents. Thank you always for your unconditional Love and being my voice of reason. As a young girl and now as a women I watch my parents do it all run a successful business for the past 30 years, maintain a house, be therapists, nurses, raise three kids, and help me raise my grandchildren, they are the true the definition of SUPER PARENTS/ GRANDPARENTS. With all these titles under their belt they still always finds the time to support my dreams and ambitions. For this I am eternally grateful. I can only hope one day I am the Entrepreneur, Wife, Friend, Parent and Grandparent you are and I do it with as much DETERMINATION, AMBITION, SELFLESNESS and GRACE (because we all know grace is not my strong suit) as you have. Last but not least, THANK YOU to the one and only RACHEAL BEEMER (principle broker of My Better Mortgage). I met Rachael last summer when I called her office needing some advice on MORTGAGES. My husband and I needed to move as our home was far to small for our growing family. At the time I was on a leave of absence from work and all the banks told me, I had to return to work! in order to be approved for a mortgage. I heard Rachaels ad on the radio and thought, what do I have to loose. After talking briefly with Rachael, she managed to ensure a TRUST with me that she had my families NEEDS covered and we were on our way to our GOALS! Rachael not only managed to get us into a mortgage that fit our lifestyle but was able to get us into our dream home without breaking the bank. When it came time for me to find a career that fit my lifestyle Rachael was there again to SUPPORT and INSURE my families financial future. Rachael has an amazing understanding for what MOMS need. She understands BALANCE; the need for moms to be with their children but contribute financially to their families. I am excited and happy to call Rachael my MENTOR and FRIEND. I look forward to our JOURNEY together and knowledge to come. I want to THANK YOU my future clients. Thank you for trusting me with your families, your dreams and your future. Thank you for making my families dreams possible.
Canadian home sales fall further in July
According to statistics released today by The Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA), national home sales declined further in July 2017. Highlights:
National home sales fell 2.1% from June to July.
Actual (not seasonally adjusted) activity in July stood 11.9% below last Julys level.
The number of newly listed homes edged back by 1.8% from June to July.
The MLS Home Price Index (HPI) was up 12.9% year-over-year (y-o-y) in July 2017.
The national average sale price edged down by 0.3% y-o-y in July.
Julys interest rate hike may have motivated some homebuyers with pre-approved mortgages to make an offer, said CREA President Andrew Peck. Even so, sales activity continued to soften in the Greater Golden Horseshoe region. Meanwhile, sales and prices in Montreal continue to strengthen. All real estate is local, and REALTORS remain your best source for information about sales and listings where you live or might like to.
July marked the smallest monthly decline in Greater Golden Horseshoe home sales since Ontarios Fair Housing Plan was announced in April, said Gregory Klump, CREAs Chief Economist. This suggests sales may be starting to bottom out amid stabilizing housing market sentiment. Time will tell whether thats indeed the case once the transitory boost by buyers with pre-approved mortgages fades.

Decline in single-family component moderated by gain in multi-family dwellings
Canadian municipalities issued $8.1 billion worth of building permits in June, up 2.5% from May and the second highest value on record. Higher construction intentions for multi-family dwellings and commercial buildings were mainly responsible for the national increase. All building components reported gains in June, except for single-family dwellings.
The value of residential building permits fell 0.9% in June to $5.0 billion, the fourth decrease in five months. The decline was mainly the result of lower construction intentions in four provinces, notably Ontario.
In June, the value of permits for single-family dwellings decreased 12.5% to $2.4 billion. Seven provinces registered declines, with Ontario being the main contributor to the decrease.
Conversely, construction intentions for multi-family dwellings rose 12.5% in June to $2.7 billion, marking a third consecutive monthly increase. Seven provinces registered gains, led by Ontario and British Columbia.
