    Mortgage Interest Rate Buy Down

    Here is a good article for those who find the mortgage wording confusing (and it is, don't feel bad if you can't understand this very easily).  This article is about OUTCAN postings, but it has a lot of relevant information about postings domestically as well.  Worth the read if you are entering...

    Mortgage Interest Rate Buy Down

    Note:  This does not include OUTCAN postings, which, thanks to Lucie Mann, has no IRD penalty. Just an update, Group Mortgages has changed their policy.  You can no longer get a  second mortgage with them unless you are porting your mortgage with another financial institution and you are...

    Mortgage Interest Rate Buy Down

    I'm hoping others are willing to share their experiences regarding mortgage rate buy downs via the IRP program. I'm curious how many have taken advantage of this?  We did for our first house via the IRP program and have really benefited from a low interest mortgage. There's a good explanation...

    CFHA Residential Housing Unit (RHU)-old PMQ [MERGED]

    No, no.. she's dead serious.  Loneliness during the day because a real problem for her when she was at home with a baby and started getting some cabin fever in mid-February and it's -45 with over a foot of white on the ground and unable to access any of the base ammenities. My wife realizes the...

    CFHA Residential Housing Unit (RHU)-old PMQ [MERGED]

    Our mortgage is less than half the rental rates of the PMQ's here, and our house is larger and newer.  My wife would love to live in the PMQ's but we simply can't afford it.

    Edmonton - how long a drive from the Uni?

    For those who live off base, do you do the two-vehicle thing?  I'm curious how my wife could get to the MFRC or the gym on base if we would have just the one vehicle?  I'm assuming I'd either have to carpool or get her to drop me off so she can have the truck?

    Kingston thread - merged

    If one were to buy a house with renting a few rooms or a basement suite out to Queens students, are there any reasonable (ie under 300K) areas in the city where it would be “in demand” for student rentals.  I don’t mind living around a bunch of students, in fact I like that crowd.

    Vacationsforheroes.com - Anyone use them?

    I'll have to try again, I put in 12456 as my badge number, no way in hell I'd give my service number out like that.  I'll try 1 instead, thanks for the post.

    Vacationsforheroes.com - Anyone use them?

    You have to log in to see the prices, but I try and register and it won't let me.  Keeps saying country is required even though I entered it (tried all three choices).

    Travel to Europe

    AWESOME replies!  Thanks so much everyone.  I've been madly slamming away at the keyboard trying to get a major paper done (its worth 40% of my mark and I'm worried as all heck) but I have been taking breaks to read your responses.  I will follow up on all of them and will be sending those who...

    Guns, Gangs and Toronto

    I am too brain dead at the moment from writing my first draft on a major paper (worth 40% of my final mark) to consider if the comments are racist or not.  But to add a different slant, if you are saying new immigrants (I'm not slagging you, just saying if you are) then possibly Canada needs to...

    Travel to Europe

    My wife and I are planning a long overdue trip to Europe.  (That is, "long overdue" according to my wife).  We've both only been as wee ones with our folks, so basically we have no clue what we even want to go check out.  Both are lines of ancestry come from England and Germany/Austria so...
