Saturday Sun n SATURDAY, MARCH 6, 2010 HOMES 3 Warmer W weather brings thoughts of model homes Editor?s message by Patricia Hitsman This type of weather that we?ve been enjoying the last week makes me think about spring and spring makes think about touring model homes. Don?t you just love visiting model homes? Don?t you just love seeing all the latest and greatest ideas and designs on the market? It?s sorta the same feeling as getting into a brand new car for a test drive. It?s that newness that is exciting and gets the blood pumping over the possibilities and the thrill of something new. Of course, I get that same feeling when I buy a new pair of shoes or purse, but just on a smaller scale! But back to model homes ? (If I get off on the buying new shoes track, I?ll be talking about how I?m itching to buy a new pair of sandals and start wearing them.) The days are finally warmer (yes, I?m glad winter is basically over) and it?s an ideal time to get out on a model home tour. You can spe ...

8 HOMES Renovating your kitchen can be an overwhelming task ? it takes a lot of careful thought to properly plan a kitchen that you?ll love to live, work, cook and dine in for the next 15 years. A modern kitchen doesn?t simply follow the classic triangle layout ? in fact, if you hear a kitchen planner mention the word ?triangle,? run. That formula was big in June Cleaver?s day; it simply doesn?t fit with how we work and use kitchens today. As you start the planning process, you?ll be asking yourself:?WhatdoIneedto know?? and ?Where do the best kitchen design ideas come from?? Let me walk you through some ideas and some food for thought you can use during the planning stage. First off, take your time. Don?t try to plan this all out in an afternoon or even a weekend. You?ll be living with the results for a long time ? it?s a lot more permanent than a new sofa. Today, we take our design cues for a great kitchen from commercial kitchens. Think about it: n They?re used by more than one chef ...

Saturday Sun n SATURDAY, MARCH 6, 2010 HOMES 9 Rule changes will affect first-time buyers BOB LABREQUE Mortgages New rules announced by Finance Minister Jim Flaherty, will affect the first-time buyer and the real estate investor. The changes were caused by the real estate industry trying to sell more housing units, no matter the cost. This writer has long maintained that affordability is much more important than qualifying numbers. It doesn?t matter much who holds your mortgage provided the person who sold you the product on behalf of the lender, was doing his/her due diligence and not just doing ?numbers? for the sake of market share. The finance minister will (effective April 19) keep the minimum down payment at 5% of the property purchase price but the potential home buyer must now qualify at the lender?s posted five-year rate. Let?s put all this into perspective. Our imaginary couple goes to their bank to get a preapproval for a new mortgage at the suggestion of their realtor. They ...
