Trouble with Home Appraisals

by Claire Franceschetti

In recent months, the major banks in our market have begun to tighten their lending rules. It follows too that with the market coming into balance, banks are now seeing a greater level of risk in granting mortgages because the values of homes may not continue to appreciate at the record braking rates of yesterday.

With a balanced or declining market, banks can be left holding mortgages for homes that were appraised too highly. As a result, they are trending towards "In Person" appraisals over the standard, quick automated appraisal of yester years.

Here's the bank's perspective on their changing method of home appraisals. 

If you are refinancing expect a home visit by an appraiser. It's the reality of today's uncertain market.

Thanks for Supporting the Duffield Devils!

by Claire Franceschetti

As some of you know, the Franceschetti's are a hockey family through and through. Along with our family history, we have 3 kids in rep and house league hockey. My husband, Claudio, coaches for the Duffield Devils, and our daughter is a goalie for the Atom North York Storm girl's league.

I continue to sponsor our teams, but it's an expensive sport, and the teams run fundraisers throughout the year to defray some of the costs. Most recently, the 2005 Duffield Devils ran a draw for 15 sets of Maple Leaf tickets. The draw happened last night, and it was exciting for the kids who gathered in the change room before practice.

Here is the draw video tape, so that everyone knows that it was "official"! How cute to see Sergio, one of our biggest fans, draw the winning ticket! Thanks to those who purchased a raffle ticket. Your support is most appreciated!
