What is the interest rate on your mortgage? Today I had a conversation with a mortgage broker who explained  the rate for a 5 year fixed mortgage was 1.89% for a qualified buyer. Wow! Rates like that will probably keep the real estate market rolling along at a brisk pace while they llast.  I am not a mortgage broker but when doing quick calculations, 1.89% clearly is a positive for most clients  needing to renew a mortgage or get a new mortgage. He even talked about the value of breaking a mortgage, paying a penalty and renewing at the lower rate. Of course you would need to talk to an expert in mortgages to get the details but it is worth taking a look into your present situation to see how you might be able to take advantage of these rates.

Today I was visiting a vacant property and decided I would wash some light fixtures and replace a couple of burnt out bulbs. The seller is away and no showings were booked in this -37 weather. Who knew there would be so many different types of bulbs and colors of cool and warm light. I made a trip to the store and was overwhelmed with choice! And don't get me started on the descriptive language of various watts and lumens. I spent the better part of the morning sorting through each fixture and was happy to see the difference a few bulbs and clean light fixtures made to the property. My advice to sellers, get your home fixtures sparkling clean and bulbs all glowing with the same color of light before you list. Although a small thing in the preparation to sell it can really make a difference. Show your home to buyers in the best light possible!
