Are you looking to buy your first home this year? Here are a few simple, yet helpful tips for you along the way!⁠ ⁠

1. Save for a down payment and closing costs. Give me a shout if you need more specifics on either of these topics. ⁠ ⁠
2. Reduce your debt. ⁠
3. Improve your credit score. ⁠ ⁠
4. Get pre-approved by a lender.⁠ ⁠
5. Decide where you want to live. ⁠ ⁠
6. Make a realistic budget for living in the home you buy. ⁠ ⁠
7. Stick to your budget. ⁠ ⁠
8. Don't give up easily!⁠ ⁠

As always, please reach out with any and all questions! There is no question too big or small. ⁠

Buying a home can be super exciting, but its important to stay level headed and not get sucked into something you cant afford, here are a few costs to consider when buying a home.⁠

- Mortgage payments⁠
- Private Mortgage Insurance (If your down payment is less than 20 percent of the home's price, you usually are required by the lender to take out a private mortgage insurance policy.)⁠
- Property taxes.⁠
- Utilities. (Once you find the right house, ask the seller for a record of a year's worth of utility bills.)⁠
-Maintenance. (When you own a home, there's no landlord to call if it needs repairs.)⁠

Here are some tips if you are downsizing! ⁠

Take photos of your home before you downsize. Not only can it be fun to look back at your old place after you move it can also be a tool to help you select what to take with you. ⁠

Keep things you want, use, need, or like to look at. You want to identify the things that make your house a home.⁠

Finally, don’t over-save for the next generation because chances are they would rather collect experiences than stuff.

Your bedroom is your safe heaven, your escape, your oasis. So make sure you have it decorated the way you want, and that includes, your walls! Paint can make or break a room, so make sure your bedroom colours match the mood you're trying to set. ⁠

A neutral paint palette is always safe, because it is so easy to change your accent colours. If your mood is always changing, I definitely recommend going this route. ⁠

If you love bold, red or yellow would be great colours for you, but using muted colours or an accent wall instead of entirely red room would be your best bet. Bold can very quickly start taking over your room. ⁠

If you're like me, and you want a relaxing room, you'll want to opt for soft, soothing colours. A few that come to mind are lavender, soft green or pale blue. Purples and blues are said to be stress-reducing shades, and while the deeper tones can be intense and turn into a bold colour, a muted amethyst or powder blue will keep everything feeling cool and calm. ⁠

Do you have any preferences when it comes to bedroom colours? I'd love to know why!


Now that summer's here, you'll want to prepare your home and yard for the summer heat. Here are a few ideas to get you started!

Inspect air-conditioners. If you haven't already, prep air conditioners and fans for their busiest season
Clean your outdoor cooker. Give your grill a deep cleaning
Polish your porch. Thoroughly sweep porch floors; then mop them with an all-purpose cleaner
Wash your windows. If you didn't tackle exterior window washing in the spring, now's the time to get your glass clean.
Plan your watering schedule. Train your garden to endure dry days by watering deeply a couple times a week, instead of watering lightly daily.
