Our contest is over and the grand prize winner of a one week summer vacation at a beautiful log home/cottage (Lantern Lane) in Port Elgin in late August is Kim Lesperance from Fergus. Congratulations Kim.
Thank you to participating sponsors, The Breadalbane Inn, Tandoori, Stone Creek, The Goofie Newfie, O’Brien’s and The Brew House. Donny lived it up this past weekend at the Brew House enjoying Canada Day Weekend festivities and the great tastes around town all June long.
By the way, our life size cut out of Don was returned anonymously just 3 days before the end of the contest. Yeah, welcome back Don. We certainly had a lot of fun, especially meeting so many wonderful people at the local establishments in town. Happy summer everyone!
ON THE MORTGAGE FRONT: If you are getting a new mortgage from a bank, make sure you ask them up front if it is a Collateral Mortgage. If the answer is yes, ask lots of questions, and do so when you make an application; that is, do not wait until signing when all the legal work and expense has been incurred. Ask if it will be registered above sale price/value and ask if the fine print gives the bank the right to increase the rate without your permission. We think that the new collateral mortgage product is definitely in their favour and we do not recommend them to our clients.
Better yet. Save yourself the time and hassle by calling us first for your next mortgage. We’ve got your back covered.
