    Tips for Surviving Fall

     

    So it seems fall has officially arrived in our fair city; and just like the spring it brings with it a bunch of annoying allergens. We’ve found a few tips and tricks to help keep your space allergen free this fall.

     

    You see those crisp, beautifully colour leaves falling from the tree outside? They’re carrying the biggest cause of fall allergies, mold.  Whether it’s up to you, or your building maintenance worker, ensure those leaves get raked up as promptly as possible to avoid those nasty sneezing fits.

     

    If you’re in a single family dwelling, make sure you clean your air filters. Allergens such as ragweed, mold and pollen will accumulate in you’re a/c and furnace filters throughout the summer, and be distributed throughout the house when you kick on that furnace for the fall chill.

     

    Adding some leafy greens to your diet can help keep the allergy bug from biting. Broccoli and Kale are packed with both Vitamin C and Vitamin A to keep you feeling refreshed and allergy free this season.

     

    Of course, if all else fails, keeping allergy medications handy isn’t a terrible idea. Pills, nasal sprays and even eye drops are great at combating the effects these fall allergens can have on us.

     

    So try something this fall to help you avoid the itchy throat, sneezing and red eyes so you can instead enjoy the beautiful colours of fall.

    Neighbourhood Spotlight - Arnheim Place

     

    We all know the old saying "Location, Location, Location", well we're currently renting in one of  Regina's best! 

     

     

    The mature neighbourhood of Arnheim Place is nestled in Regina's south east end and stretches from Park Street to Broad Street right along beautiful Wascana Park. The area features mostly single family war time homes, though developers such as Zarkor Homes have been building new duplexes to bring new life to the area. Brand new elementary schools have been constructed on Douglas Avenue and Abbott Road and charming Candy Cane Park is only blocks away. 

     

    While the proximity to Wascana Park is likely the biggest draw to this beautiful neighbourhood, we can not forget that it is also home to the Al Richie Community Center, (which of course houses a skating rink in the winter) the Broadway Avenue Shopping Center and the Tartan Curling Club

    Apartment Living with Mans' Best Friend

     

    Living with your buddy, your pal, your very best friend in the world; could there be anything better? We'd like to agree but sometimes it's not always what's best for you, us, or them. 

     

    Before making a decision to live in an apartment with any sort of pet it's important to ensure that the landlord approves of them. There would be nothing worse than having to choose between an apartment you love and your furry friend. Some apartments have pet restrictions, meaning maybe only small dogs, or older cats would be acceptable, not your high energy puppy. Check your lease agreement, it likely states your landlords view on pets! 

     

    If you're lucky enough to have a landlord that accpets your pet, remember that's only half the battle. Don't forget about your neighbours. You likely have some that work shift work, or have children, some that maybe aren't fond of animals; so be mindful of their boundries. Keep your pet quiet indoors, exercise them regularilly so they aren't zipping around the house while people are trying to sleep, wait for the next elevator if  you're with your pet, and be sure to clean up after your pet so everyone can enjoy any greenspaces around the building. 

     

    Be respectful and courteous and we're sure everyone will enjoy your pet being around as much as you do.

    Investing in Revenue Property

     

    Owning a rental property has become quite the trend, but it isn't easy by any means. Choosing the right property can make or break your rental investment. Throughout Regina you will see brand new Infill homes being built in well-established neighbourhoods by builders like Zarkor Homes.

     

    A few key things to consider when shopping for your rental property:

     

    • Financial Responsibility - Most people buying a rental property are doing so with the help of a second mortgage. What you may not know is, Canada's new mortgage rules require a 20% down payment for the purchase of rental properties under 4 units. Ensuring the property you choose has the capacity to generate income and not just break even with your mortgage is key.
    • Location, Location, Location! - It may sound obvious but not only will the location of your property help to attract and keep good tenants in your rental but there is also income from property value growth to consider long term.
    • Well Built Property - The real estate market has all types of homes, from dyi renos to custom built, and you're going to want to take note of the workmanship throughout the property. The less maintenance work you're going to have to put in, the less money coming out of your pocket. Your tenants will thank you for not having to inconvenience their lives with pesky maintenance calls.

     

    Whether you think you've got it figured out, or you're in over your head, it never hurts to call a professional for some help.
