Trusted Saskatoon Real Estate Agent Kari Calder Awarded CENTURY 21 Golden Heart Award

Support of local families living with disabilities gains Trusted Saskatoon REALTOR® Kari Calder an award!

Incredible community dedication honoured by CENTURY 21 Canada and Easter Seals Canada 

Trusted Saskatoon REALTOR® Kari Calder has given Easter Seals kids the experience of a lifetime: a week-long trip to a fully accessible summer camp. By raising over $2,100 this year, Calder is inducted into the 2017 C21® Kids to Camp Club and receives the CENTURY 21 Golden Heart Award.

Besides recognition, Calder will be connected with a camper who will share their personal experience, to provide a firsthand story of the donation’s impact. The club’s mission is to provide more kids with life-changing camp memories by increasing awareness and inspiring fundraising within CENTURY 21 offices.

“I know this program will definitely give many bright campers a wonderful future. In fact, as I write this, I am heading to Easter Seals Camp Rotary to take the leadership training program. This will help teach me the skills I will need as I look at future job opportunities,” said 15 year old Brandon Liston, Easter Seals national ambassador. “I am sure this is the case for many others like me and it is all because of people like Kari – and the Kids to Camp Club!”

Easter Seals will highlight Calder on a special installation at their local camp and nationally in the organization’s annual report. As well, they will be sent invites to special Easter Seals’ events as an honourary guest.

Since 1979, CENTURY 21 System members around the world have supported local Easter Seals families through fundraising and volunteering. To date, they have contributed over $111 million. Last year alone, CENTURY 21 offices across Canada raised over $650,000 for Easter Seals. 


About the Kids to Camp program

In 2009, CENTURY 21 CanadaTM introduced the Kids to Camp program, sending children to one of 16 summer camps run by Easter Seals across the country. Through events like The Drop Zone, 24 hour relays, Woman2Warrior, and locally organized fundraising functions, System members have provided over 1,000 children with the independence of fully-accessible summer camps and memorable experiences throughout Canada.

How are Easter Seals camps different?

Each camp is specially designed and equipped to accommodate children and young adults with special needs. The addition and maintenance of ramps and lifts, the modification of doorways, washrooms, the purchase of specialized sports equipment like climbing walls and giant swings are just a few of the expenses unique to these kinds of operations.

This wonderful program is being supported by 98 Cool and Christmas 365. As a result of her generous donation and thanks to the kind folks at Pizza Hut, we were going to throw a pizza party for Kari’s office. Kari decided to use the pizza to give back to a local charity that is close to her heart! Kari is a mentor/ fairy godmother with the Saskatoon Princess Shop, and they held a Christmas party for the participants in the Fairy Godmother’s Program. Kari thought the kids in the program would appreciate a Christmas treat. Pizza Hut delivered 10 extra large, and delicious, pizzas for the party and a great time was had by all!

Thanks to Kari for her generous donation to the YWCA, and also for paying it forward. Pizza Hut came through BIG TIME and in the giving spirit have said that if another individual or group adopts a room at the YWCA they would be thrilled to provide another pizza party to celebrate and say “THANKS”. All donations can be made though Joy-Ann at the YWCA.

A new scam to be aware of!

Home → Saskatoon Real Estate News → A new scam to be aware of

 

If you have recently purchased a home or considering buying a home in Saskatoon, please read this important information. There is a new scam happening once again in real estate that you should be aware of. The plot is this: hackers find out your possession date, email you posing as a representative of your agent or lawyer, ask for money to complete your sale, then you wire transfer them money to a ‘new, updated’ account number.
Now hopefully this won’t happen to you or if it does, you’ll be wise enough to question the integrity of the baited email. Your law firm, your real estate brokerage and your realtor will never email you and tell you there has been last minute changes to the wiring instructions. If you chose to initially wire transfer the deposit to your real estate brokerage at the time of offer, the instructions will not change. Ensure you’re getting the information directly from your trusted real estate agent.
If you receive an email asking you to transfer money from someone that you don’t know personally, there are things you can do to protect yourself before sending over money:
-call your agent or lawyer and ask them why there’s been a change.
-independently confirm the wire transfer account information by calling the office directly.
-call the police and report the scam.

If anyone emails you and asks for money or your banking information, BEWARE. It happens to more people than you think. Don’t let it happen to you!

Kari Calder A Trusted Saskatoon Realtor hares a tip on the new tax implications of selling your home

The decision to purchase your home is one of the most important decisions you will ever make, and will also be one of your largest investments. Done right, it can also be one of the most exciting and fulfilling times in your life! Kari Calder a saskatoon Realtor with Century 21 Fusion is there to help you through the process, and provide you and your family with the peace of mind that comes with knowing that you have a realtor working with your best interests in mind.

The new tax implications of selling your home

At the beginning of this week, Finance Minister Bill Morneau introduced changes to the current tax model around selling your primary residence. This, along with the new mortgage rules is an attempt to ensure foreign investors abide by our current tax laws. Although these changes are focused on foreign investors, the changes will also have an affect on those Canadians who inadvertently did not pay tax when selling their principal residence.


In the past, many people who sold their homes did not report it to the government due to the principal residence tax exemption. CRA has not required you to report the sale if the property was your principal residence and no taxes was owed. This is the part that is changing.

The CRA is now requiring you to report every sale on your principal residence whether you owe tax or not. This is in effect for any properties sold in 2016 and now going forward. You will have to provide the date of purchase, a description of the property, as well as the proceeds of disposition ( the amount you sold your home for) on Schedule 3 on your 2016 tax return.

Here’s another important part to note. If you fail to report the sale in 2016 or going forward, you won’t be entitled to the principal residence tax exemption. If you forget to designate a property as your principal residence in the year of the sale, you could ask CRA to amend your tax return for that year. They likely will do so for a fee.

The onus is placed on the homeowner to understand the rules. What can you do going forward?

  • Ensure you’re filling out a Form T2091 to designate a property as your principal residence.
  • Talk to your accountant if you have any questions about whether or not your real estate sale was considered the sale of a principal residence (for example, adding or removing a suite to the home you live in may require you to report even if you haven’t sold)
  • You’ll also want to track the cost of capital improvements you make to your residence going forward. Keep your receipts! This could save you money later on taxes if it turns out the sale of your property is no longer qualified under the principal residence tax exemption.
