Browsing for a home during isolation?

In this time, we find ourselves spending more time online. If you find yourself looking at homes to possibly purchase when we are able to be out and about, I would love to discuss any of our listings with you. We already have the virtual tours in place - you can see more on my website at goodchildrealty.com. Once you watch the virtual house tour, I would be glad to answer any questions you have,

It is tax season and many Canadians are collecting their tax slips, gathering receipts, and perhaps even planning how to spend your income tax refund. However, if you’re getting an income tax refund, it means that you’ve overpaid in taxes and we have some tips on how to put these funds to work for you.


Pay down debt.

It’s unlikely that you’ll miss this chunk of money, since Revenue Canada can already deducted these amounts from your regular pay cheques. So, why not use any refund you may get to pay down existing debt? Student loans, car loans, credit card debt – whichever has the highest interest rate.

Stash it away.

Leaving your income tax refund floating around in your savings account makes it easy to access – and spend. Make the most of your tax savings and plan for the future, by contributing part or all of your tex refund into a Tax-Free Savings Account or a Registered Retirement Savings Plan.

Update your home.

While your income tax refund may not be enough to fund a full-blown renovation, the average amount that goes back into Canadians’ pockets is definitely enough to cover some small but sweet upgrades in your home. This can boost your home’s value on the resale market, not to mention the enhanced liveability you’ll enjoy.
