Analyst: Household imbalances keeping Bank of Canada from setting lower rates
Financial Post
It might have been a closer call than we thought. After 18 months of telling consumers and markets that its key interest rate would eventually be lifted from one per cent, close to rock bottom, the Bank of Canada shifted gears into neutral.

Condo culture: Locked out for arrears? Threatened with worse? Know your rights on missed fee payments
National Post
My brother was recently locked out of his condo by the board of directors/management because of his late condo-fee payment. They finally allowed him back in his condo but gave him a warning that next time the locks would be changed. Is this legal procedure to lock owners out over a late condo-fee payment?

CMHC: Home sales, prices to pick up marginally next year
The Globe and Mail
The number of existing homes changing hands will pick up a bit next year, but the average selling price will rise by only 1.9 per cent in 2014, compared to four per cent this year, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. predicts. Average prices can be influenced by changes in the types or locations of homes that are selling, and CMHC says the four per cent gain this year stems in part from increased sales in higher-priced markets.

Not ready for a forever home? Take a gap year
The Grid
There comes a time in the lives of many urbanites when they've outgrown their teensy condos but are not yet ready for a family-sized home — and wouldn't know where to plant roots, even if they were. This year in particular, I've noticed a spike in clientele who've elected to "bridge the gap" between condo and freehold home life by renting for a year — not exactly a novel concept in itself, but I think it's a fantastic short-term solution that allows people to explore all possible options in the current housing market.

The fixer upper
View Magazine
Everyone watches the HGTV shows about fixing up a house and making a huge profit. People think it is so easy to flip a house and you hear about it all the time in real estate. Talk to any agent and they always have people who tell them to "call me when you see a house to flip." The problem is, by the time you call these people the house is already sold. I recently listed a "flip house" on the market and it usually goes something like this.

How to build your online brand
Real Estate Magazine
These days, being a REALTOR® without a solid online brand is like trying to run a marathon in bare feet. You have no hope of catching up to the leaders and you'll likely trip over your own feet trying.
