 "The SAVVY Buyer" - Step #2

Pre-Qualify for a Mortgage - Determining your price range up front will make your buying experience much easier.

A qualified lender will ask questions about income, assets, and debt to help understand what price range you should be looking in. If satisfactory to the lender, a mortgage pre-approval is granted for a specific amount, mortgage rate and term, subject to providing verification of income, down payment, and any other conditions the lender requires.

It is always wise to still include a “subject to financing” clause in your real estate offer, to protect yourself against unforeseen issues.

Stay tuned for "The Savvy Buyer" Steps 3-8 coming up.

June 8-9, 2013 at the Apple Bowl

Each year, Century 21 Assurance Ltd participates in the Easter Seals 24 Hour Relay, and this year is no different.

The Easter Seals 24 Hour Relay takes place at the Apple Bowl on June 8-9 and is an annual community based fundraiser event to raise money towards helping children with disabilities attend Easter Seals Camp Winfield. It is because of fundraising events like this that they are able to operate the camping program at a minimal cost to the families, many of whom are already financially burdened by the costs associated with raising children with special needs.

Here's a letter from a parent of one of the many campers:

"We would like to thank the teams that participate in the 24 Hour Relay, because of their support our son is able to go to camp. Our son's name is Mitchell and he is a 16 year old boy who has autism.  Mitchell has a hard time telling us what he likes about camp but we know that he loves going because as soon as we get a new calendar, he writes Easter Seals Camp on the July page. This will be the 4th year that Mitch will go to Camp Winfield with his PSW (personal support worker), Doug...who is with him at all times to keep him safe and help him to participate in camp activities. Doug tells us what Mitch has done at camp and how much fun he has.

Having the opportunity for Mitch to go to camp is not just a great experience for him, but it is also good for his family. Knowing that Mitch is safe and having fun, we are able to do things that regular families do all the time without having to constantly be on alert.

Thanks so much for getting involved with this fundraiser and helping to send kids to camp."

Cheers from Mitchell and his family, Steve, Colleen and Jordan
