Gardening Winter Prep Tips!

We are blessed in the Georgian Bay to enjoy wonderful fall weather boasting warm days, crisp evenings and beautiful colors of the season wherever we cast our eye. I would challenge that this year our September was drier and sunnier/warmer than our summer months, which was welcomed indeed!!!  But, unfortunately, we all know that before long we will be blanketed again in snow.  It is now that you must start to prepare for those cold winter months ahead. We need to protect and assure that our lawns and gardens have had that winterizing attention necessary to be guaranteed of that returning beauty for the spring-time season.  Here are a few helpful tips that have been shared with us which will help to protect and preserve your lovely plants, lawns and shrubbery.

Why is a Home Inspection Necessary?!

As Chad and Scott prepare offers each day and work with our Sellers and Buyers, both are adamant about the importance to have a Home Inspection as one of the “conditions of purchase and sale”; sometimes even for new builds.  But what exactly is a home inspection and why is it so important??

How to Pay Your Mortgage FASTER ! !

Owning your home can see like some distant dream that may never be attained, especially if you are young and just getting into the real estate game.  But if you break down this payment-burden, you are going to pleasantly find that this goal is very attainable; and much sooner than you may think.  As with most things in life … you need a plan and there IS a strategy that will pay off your mortgage way sooner than those traditional “once a month” payments.  Even better, this strategy is going to save you thousands of dollars and it is perfectly legal!!  If an accelerated bi-weekly mortgage is a plan that you would like to try,  then please read on!!!

The Woes of Identity Theft

When I received a phone call the other day from someone claiming to be from the Canadian Revenue Service and telling me that I was going to be arrested for tax evasion, it shook me up for a few minutes!!  Then stopping for a moment to really think about it, I knew it must be a scam.  I called the police and indeed, it was/is a scam, facilitated offshore and very hard for the police to track, let alone prosecute.

Safety on the Beach!

School's out and vacation time finally here!!!!  Oh how wonderful it is to head to Beach Area 1 to take in all the sights, sounds, smells and yes, have a refreshing dip in that beautifully warm azure water.  Playing and swimming in any of our beach areas is heavenly.  How blessed we are to live and play on the many miles of this gorgeous beach.  But nothing should ever be taken for granted so be aware of your surroundings at all times and come prepared not only for fun and sun, but safety.

The challenges of planting in sandy soil!

Although Wasaga Beach has the longest fresh water beach in the world, for the gardeners, our area can sometimes be a challenge with all that sandy soil.  Of course, sandy soil has the advantage of draining well and it is oh-so easy to dig (and very seldom do you run into a rock when digging!!).  It also warms up way faster than clay soils does in the springtime which means we can get our gardens into the ground earlier than in other regions of the country.  But there are fewer species adapted to it compared to other types of soil.  Sandy soil is really not that common in nature and has distinct disadvantages too; most important to remember is that it does not hold onto nutrients or water very well.

Trash to Treasure!

This is the time of year when on the weekends, no matter where you live, the Yard Sale signs pop up in every subdivision.  And why not!  What may be your ‘junk’ will surely be someone else’s ‘treasure’ and putting a little jingle in your own pocket is always a good thing any time of year!!! Those Yard Sales are so social too; a wonderfully friendly way to spend a Saturday or Sunday.  When folks are downsizing or under the pressure of moving, at a local Yard Sale it's amazing what deals you can get for such beautiful things.
