Experts have suggested that Southern Alberta is expected to grow exponentially over the next few years, meaning that not only will employment opportunities grow, but the housing market will boom as well. With increased demand comes a higher value in properties; the sooner you get in, the more valuable your investment will be. For this reason buying a home in Southern Alberta is a great opportunity for those looking right now! There are many great smaller cities not too far from Calgary that offer great value and are wonderful neighborhoods to raise a family.
Some of these include Lethbridge, Medicine Hat, Red Deer, Taber, Coleman, Pincher Creek and Blairmore. Nothing will put you in a better position to purchase real estate than having a seasoned mortgage broker on your team. An accredited mortgage broker will steer you in the right direction, and will provide you with all the information you need to shop for your new home by getting you pre-approved for a mortgage that is well within your budget. Why choose a mortgage broker instead of a bank for your mortgage? The answer is simple. You won't get as many options with a bank since they can only offer their lending products, but a mortgage broker shops your home loan over lenders across Canada. You also get personalized, confidential service with an independent mortgage broker, like Jim Black. Banks have only their packages and rates to offer clients, which are often very limited. In addition, banks look out for number one - themselves. Mortgage brokers, on the other hand, have their interests vested elsewhere - with their clients. They work for you to save you money on your next mortgage - all at no cost to you! Brokers are able to offer you a variety of different rates on their best Alberta mortgages because they deal with so many lenders that are used to working with all sorts of borrowers. Whether you're self-employed, have poor credit, or simply don't fit all the necessary lending criteria that most banks and credit unions require, and then call experienced mortgage broker Jim Black and his team for award winning service.
Everyone went very cautiously, but at one point, my hands and arms were cramping so bad that I had to let go a bit and I was terrified. Thankfully, the road flattens out a bit at the main parking lot, but then we had another hill to descend to get back into the town proper. Yikes - I can't hold on much longer - my arms are dead! But I managed - I don't know how. Where are those pedal brakes when you need them. My legs are much stronger than my arms - it would have been way easier. Then we had to descend that bloody hill at the monument one more time in order to find a spot to dip the wheels. I took one look at it and almost chickened out. I don't think I can or want to go down the hill. BUT everyone else was already on their way down (Joyce walked) so I sucked it up and went down.
Don't forget it is wet! I was fine - just being a baby! We found a park that had some boat docks off it and zipped down there for the dipping. Naturally that wasn't an easy process to get there either. The waves were bad, the dock was a floating dock and it was a bit steep to get down and the dock was wet and slippery. I tell you this trip is a challenge right to the end! I could just imagine someone going down that dock and losing their bike in the water! Dan stood on solid ground and took pictures of each of us as we each dipped our bike in the water. I don't think I was even looking at the camera, I was so focused on not falling in! Some of the girls had someone dip their bikes, but I wanted to dip my own. Then I had to stand on that rocky dock for a bit holding someone else's bike while they helped the others. I can still feel that darn rocky motion.
A sailor I will NOT make. At last we were done! The trip was ALMOST over. The only thing remaining was the brunch. Back up that STEEP hill, but we found a shorter version of it so it wasn't too bad. Arrived at the hotel with mud all over my legs. And don't forget the drizzle, although we were VERY lucky that while it was wet, we did NOT get a downpour. Oh yes - while all or most of us had our fancy jerseys on for that last effort, I don't think one person exposed themselves to the elements - all you see is rain gear! Fortunately, our hotel agreed to shuttle us to the restaurant which was just down the street. Yeah - we arrive in dribs and drabs. It was ONE last chance to be together (some people left yesterday). Many stories were related, many laughs, some tears, two minutes of silence for Bob and Irene.
