How can you Refinance your Mortgage with Home Equity? 

re financing mortgage saskatoon

With spring just around the corner you might be thinking about renovating the house, sprucing up the backyard or even purchasing your first cottage. Refinancing your mortgage may allow you to find the money that you need for these aspirations.

The first thing that you have to consider is how much equity has built up in your home since you started paying down your mortgage. Your home equity – your home’s value minus the balance of your mortgage – is available for you to withdraw and invest in a number of ways, including home renovations, additional real estate, post secondary education and much more. Has the property value increased? Decreased? You can obtain a realistic figure by getting a market evaluation on your home. By multiplying your current market value by 80% this should give you an idea of how much you would be able to borrow for your new project.

The second thing is to look at different options when it comes to realizing your goals and every individual situation is different. Some choices that a person can look at are:

  • A new mortgage (the amount of your existing balance plus the amount that you would like to borrow);

  • A home equity line of credit;

  • A combination of a mortgage and line of credit.

The third step would be to sit down with Devin or Wes, your mortgage specialist and assess your different needs and that is why we are here to help you answer these important questions. So contact us today and we will help you come up with the best strategy for your lifestyle.

Why Is It Important to Keep Your Home In Good Physical Condition?

When you are about to sell your home, you will need to make sure your home is in good condition before you do. Cosmetic aspects of your home are important selling tools and if you take the time to touch things up, it will pay off in the end.

What to fix first? 

Deciding on what to fix can vary. A discussion with your REALTOR® and doing some research is always the best first step. Take into consideration the time of the year, similar competing homes on the market, and what kind of neighbourhood you are residing in.

1. Flooring

Flooring is a good place to start. Whether you have hardwood, laminate, tile, or carpet you want to ensure they are in good condition. Homebuyers will notice and could be driven away if your flooring is in very poor condition.

2. Walls

Walls and ceilings should be free of cracks and chipped paint. While most people are likely to paint once they move in, you want your home to look as nice as possible. A fresh coat of paint will often do the trick. Use neutral colours like white or very light grey.

3. Kitchen

The kitchen should be a prime target in this area. Many people know the frustration of having a poor kitchen especially when the cabinets and appliances are in bad condition. A complete kitchen remodel can be expensive, talk to your REALTOR® about what improvements will assist in the sale of your home.

Overall you want to make sure your home is in the best condition possible. Use your best judgement and the help of your REALTOR® to determine what needs to be repaired or updated before you put your home on the market.

Superior Auto Body is a TRUSTED SASKATOON AUTO BODY shop…you will not regret choosing them! In this latest tip they talk about polymer degradation.  

WHAT ARE POLYMER PARTS?

Polymer Degradation Issues on wing mirror

A polymer is basically a part that is made up of a string of molecular components that are similar; in other words, plastic, rubber, vinyl, and the like.  When we talk about a vehicle, polymer parts are just about anything that isn’t made out of metal. If you take a look at your vehicle, you probably see polymer parts immediately.  Many polymer parts aren’t painted, they’re made out of polymer plastic designed to be that particular colour.  The trim around the doors is often a polymer.  There’s likely polymer in the grill, around the windows, and often much of the trim all the way around the vehicle.

In essence, a large part of your vehicle is made of polymers, and those polymers are subject to degradation over time. Unfortunately, Saskatchewan weather can speed that process up!

WHAT IS POLYMER DEGRADATION?


There are two basic ways that items break down.  Most of us are familiar with biodegrading material.  That is how organic matter decomposes.  Anything from paper to food scraps, to wood that isn’t maintained will biodegrade.  But man-made items like plastic and Styrofoam break down through a process called photodegrading.  That is, when they’re exposed to light, the components start to break apart and deteriorate. Polymers used on vehicles can degrade in a few other ways as well.  Exposure to air pollution, such as car exhaust, can cause them to degrade faster.  The same goes with dirt, road grime, and other pollutants that can get onto the polymers. When they degrade, they don’t rot in the sense that we think about food and other organic matter rotting.  Instead, they become brittle.  They may crack, fade, or chip.  They’re not as flexible as they once were, and they certainly aren’t as strong as before.

That fading is especially seen in black polymers.  They turn grey and often people mistake their degradation for having leftover wax that wasn’t buffed out.  That can be the case, but most often, it’s not wax.

cleaning your car prevents polymer degradationHOW CAN YOU PREVENT POLYMER DEGRADATION?

Here is the good news! If you take care of your vehicle, you can slow the polymer degradation as it comes along.  It’s all about taking great care of your vehicle.

  • Keeping your vehicle clean of dust, dirt, tar, and grime is the first step to making sure the polymer parts don’t fall apart faster than you hope.  We recommend regular washes, and make sure you have your vehicle detailed twice every year (at very least once per year!).
  • In addition to the detailing, you will want to use a product designed to protect polymers.  Don’t grab the cheapest cleaner you can find, those will often speed up the degradation rather than prevent it.
