Happy New Year

Happy New Year and all the Best for 2010.  We are all back to work and ready to help you in the coming year.  
Just a note to let you know that for the month of January we are offering a free report with the sales on your street for 2010.  It was a crazy year for Real Estate in 2009.  It started off so slowly and many areas were down nearly 20% in the GTA.  Early in the year I did a market evaluation for a client and I estimated the value of there house at about $450,000, but we came back with a vengeance and they were glad to know that it is now worth about $535,000.  Your house is likely to have come back up significantly too.  Find out what the sales on your street were last year by visiting www.SalesOnStreet.com .
Perhaps you just want to learn exactly how the process of buying a home in the GTA works in todays active market. We can help with that.  We offer a free one on one seminar that will help you negotiate the Buying Process.   We have some great deals available and many homes that are Power of Sale/Foreclosure or PrePower of Sales/Foreclosure.  Sometimes the ones who have not yet come to the brink of no return are even better deals.  We have helped quite a few people get out of sticky situations this year and have also helped buyers get great deals.  Just reply to this email  for the one on one or go to www.JustListed.to to let us know what you are looking for.  
Maybe this is the year you are thinking of moving up.  We can help you with our report Saving Big When moving up.  Just go to www.SaveBigWhenBuying.com . There maybe some big changes coming to financing.  The amortization allowed may decrease from 35 years and the down payment may increase.  Last year you could buy with no money down and amortize over 40 years.  Mid year the Minister of Finance may change this so if you are thinking of buying your first home or moving up, you will want to get a preapproved mortgage and purchase in the first half of the year to avoid these charges.  We will be having a seminar on these issues at the end of the month so reply to this email if you want to be included.  If you have a friend considering buying or moving up pass this along to them too.  You’ll be a hero helping your friend make an informed decision.
Again, All the Best For 2010.  We hope it is your best year ever!
