How do I get started on buying or selling my home?
There are a number of factors to consider when buying a home. The first of course is how much you can realistically afford. It's a good idea to get pre-approved.
Then decide not only on the house, but also the neighbourhood - is everything you need nearby?
When selling your home, you need to consider the status of your present mortgage. Also, what could be done to improve your chances of selling?
Whether buying or selling, it is always important to look at the market conditions.
The process of purchasing or selling a home isn't nearly as daunting when you have a good plan and a good agent on your side. Kevin Gallant of ReMax Harbourside Realty has the experience and the success record to guide you through the home buying process from start to finish. You can reach him at www.remaxharbourside.ca.

My computer isn't performing like it used to. Do I need a new one?
If your computer starts acting differently than normal or running very slow, this doesn't necessarily mean you need to buy a new computer. Like cars, computers also need tune-ups and require regular maintenance. There are applications that will clean your computer and make it run like new.
Sites and Bytes can repair a hard drive, generate free space, recover data, optimize processes and most of all clean your computer registry! Technicians will warn the user of any viruses or other issues that are potentially hazardous to your computer's functionality, including hard drive errors, security issues, inefficient settings or files that may need to be deleted to free up disk space.
By bringing your computer in for a tune-up, your computer will last longer, experience fewer slowdowns and improve its overall performance, saving you a lot of frustration.
How does a renovated kitchen help add to my homes resale value?
Why did the house down the street sell for more than yours? It's the same vintage, similar design and property size, probably the same condition as yours... why do some homes - regardless of comparable location, age, design, etc. - command higher prices?
Well, the difference likely is due to recent renovation. Regardless of the economy and market conditions, homes that have been renovated within five years of the date of sale command higher prices than homes in the area that lack similar updates.
There are numerous home renovations that can increase a home's overall value, including both real cash value and personal value derived from enjoyment of the finished product. However, kitchens, bathrooms and basement renos result in your best return on investment.
To see what could be done to increase your home's value or simply to have that kitchen you've always dreamed of, call Daniel Richard from Dan's Kitchens today!

How do I declutter my home?
Many folks make a New Year resolution to declutter their homes, especially in the aftermath of Christmas. Here are some tips on how to get started:
1. Start somewhere. Start in one area (room, desk, shelf or drawer) in the part of the house you use the most, such as the living room or kitchen. Give yourself a set amount of time, be it one hour or five minutes.
2. Sort first, store later. Wait on purchasing storage containers until after you've decluttered. You may not need as much storage space once you've sorted through everything, or you may find a different solution works better for you.
3. Sort through everything and try to make it fun. Take the time to sort through everything. Put items into categories: keep, donate, sell or toss/recycle. Group like items together to make it easier to access them in the future. Involve your kids and partner if you have them. Put on happy music, start a race to collect recycling and make it fun!
4. Schedule the time to follow through. Schedule a time to drop off donations and get them out of your space. Take recycling to the curb or depot; take garbage bags to the bins.
5. Prevent clutter before it starts. Even if it's free or a really great price, if it will just end up clutter, don't bring it home.

What are some of the best reasons to become a homeowner today?
A cool fact you may not know is two out of three Canadian families own a house. That's one of the highest rates of home ownership in the world. And for good reason: real estate is a great investment.
With increasing housing prices, it's all the more important for first-time buyers to get a foot on the first rung of the property ladder. Here are some of the advantages of becoming a homeowner today:
1. Home ownership is the single largest source of savings for Canadian households.
2. Your payments build equity (as opposed to renting, where your money goes to the building owner).
3. Unlike other investments that can be volatile, when you buy a home the increase in its value is relatively steady. The average price of a house for sale on the Canadian real estate market has increased every year since 1998.
4. The return on investment for a house can be substantial. In Canada, there has not been a recorded 10-year period where average house prices have not increased.
5. Homeowners can use the equity in their homes as security for other loans.
Buying a home and building equity is the first step on the property ladder. It gets you into the housing market, keeps you in touch with increasing house prices and puts you in a good position to trade up to bigger and better homes as your circumstances allow.

Safe Drivers P.E.I.
What are the benefits of driver training?
While there are several good reasons for investing in a Drivers Ed Program, the top reason should be for safer driving, both when learning to drive and after receiving a drivers license.
Professionally trained drivers, will have the knowledge and the in car experiences to help them handle the challenges found in today's driving environments.
Driver Education, will not replace the need for new drivers to gain additional driving experience, nor can it prevent all new drivers from taking risks, but it is a very good start to safer driving. (Any motor vehicle accident, that is prevented by the knowledge or training a new driver has received, is worth the investment.)
In addition to helping new drivers be safer on the road, Drivers Education can also be a very good financial decision. Insurance companies will generally offer large discounts for new drivers who have taken a Driver Education Program. New drivers with Drivers Education are normally given a group six rating (6 years no accidents) and will maintain that rating as long as they keep a clean driving record. Safe Drivers PEI students have reported savings of up to $4000.00 in the first few years and savings can continue for up to six years. (please check with your insurance provider for more information.)
It should also be noted, that the Safe Drivers PEI program, covers all study materials and required testing for both the learners and drivers licenses. Safe Drivers PEI, also eliminates the need to attend the provincial government (2 evening) novice driver program. This adds up to nearly $160.00 in savings for new drivers, and our students can take their driving test after nine months instead of 1 year.
Safe Drivers PEI offers programs in the greater areas of Summerside, Kensington and Kinkora PEI. We offer 9 courses per year from September to July. Program fees may be paid over several months (up to nine months.) and we can accept scheduled bank and credit card payments.
Private lessons are also available on an hourly basis and will be credited towards the full program, if requested.
