Buying a home can be stressful. Why not take some of the stress out by deciding what you are going to buy BEFORE you start your search. Things can change as your search begins, bu having a clear goal in mind will make the buying process much easier for you and your entire family. Take the time to...
It's time to renew your mortgage. What should you do? just let the bank renew on their term? I don't think so. It's a great time to shop around for the best deal out there.
