Fall heating check
BREB via Canadian Residential Inspection Services
This is the time of the year when people start thinking about ways to heat their homes more efficiently. If your heating equipment is over 20 years old, consider upgrading it. New equipment is much more efficient than the older versions. Change the furnace filter often and have heating equipment serviced and cleaned on a regular basis.

Bank of Canada governor understands economy not driven by central bankers
Financial Post
Bank of Canada governor Stephen Poloz changed the direction of Canadian central banking Wednesday, back to what it once was — an international bellwether of cautious common sense focused on inflation. It can also be said that in his first personally stamped Monetary Policy Report since his appointment, Mr. Poloz looked uncannily like the unCarney, both in style and substance.

Forget the 'task force,' let's actually talk about housing
The Grid
A flood of micro-scandals has poured out of City Hall over the past week: robocalls, reference letters, weird mayoral communications to the Toronto Sun, and, of course, Mayor Rob Ford and councillor Giorgio Mammoliti's rage at a possibly snoozing city worker. All of these are potential talking points in the ramp-up to next year's election period.

Does century-old murder still haunt Massey home?
Toronto Star
In the real estate field, when the value of a house might be affected by a history of murder, suicide, ghosts, hauntings or other unexplained happenings, it is often referred to as stigmatized. To some buyers, a house with something like this in its background becomes psychologically tainted, even if there are no scientific grounds for the belief.

Analysis: Low rate pledge seen recharging Canada's housing boom
TD Waterhouse
The Bank of Canada's surprising signal that it will not raise interest rates any time soon will lift the housing market and give indebted households breathing room, but it leaves many apprehensive there will be a hard reckoning. Canada sidestepped the worst of the financial crisis because it avoided the real estate excesses of its U.S. neighbor, and a post-recession housing boom helped it recover more quickly than its Group of Seven peers.
