Always keep your eyes on the stars but keep your feet on the ground - Theodore Roosevelt

A man’s home is his castle, as they say…

A dad’s home…not always.

Every guy wants a piece of his home all to himself. A “man cave”, if you will. OK, OK, let’s be realistic. Maybe not even that grand. Just a small spot nobody else messes with would suffice.

Moms get a lot of credit for all the sacrifices they make. And deservedly.

But dads do a lot of sacrificing, too. Rarely does the dad have the better closet. Or dibs on the bathroom. Or even an office…let alone a proper “man cave”.

Maybe…just maybe…dad gets the garage as “his”…

… if the kids’ stuff hasn’t taken it over.

In my experience as a real estate agent, I’ve learned there are two types of fathers:

1. He who has a man cave (or at least a space of his own).

2. He who does not.

(I don’t have any hard data as to which there are more of, but I have my hunch.)

So, which kind are you? I’d love to be able to throw out some actual statistics for the dads.

Leave me a quick comment …and even a picture of your “man cave” or space if you have one.

But really, I just wanted to reach out to you and say Happy Father’s Day! Enjoy your day!

Do you understand what Strata Fees are for?

I’ve found recently that most people don’t know and I wanted to clarify and reduce some confusion. I’ve always heard that people dismissed looking at strata properties such as condos and townhomes because of the “additional” fees that they had to pay each month.

It is true that there are strata fees for these properties but do you know what they go towards?

Most strata fees will include things that you likely already pay for in your home such as water, sewer, garbage and recycling, but that’s not all. Most also include building insurance, general maintenance, road maintenance and landscaping. Some properties fees also include things such as heating and cooling as well as hot water.

Ultimately, when you start to compare what you pay for a strata fee and what you receive in return, it turns out to be about the same that you pay for multiple different things but in one lump sum.

Strata properties are a great way for you to get your feet wet in the market but also an inexpensive and convenient option when downsizing.

Don’t let that fee scare you away from what could be the perfect solution for you!
