Temperatures are dropping...

With the arrival of winter comes the need to prepare for the dark, snowy days ahead. It's time to get that dusty box out of the basement and unload your sweaters, long-johns, toques, mittens and fuzzy socks. Lawn chairs need to be replaced with shovels as flower pots get swapped out for snowmen. Hot soup is about to become your best friend, an electric car starter your most prized possession.

As you prepare yourself for winter, make sure that you also prepare your home for winter. Winterizing your property is incredibly important in making sure that it successfully survives the cold. If you neglect to properly winterize your home, it can get seriously damaged and won't help you stay warm, either. Here are some

Welcome to the world of investment properties!

An investment property can be a property you use yourself (such as a vacation home), a property you lease to others (such as renters or a business), or a property that you fix up and flip for an immediate return. Whatever you plan on using your investment property for, consider the following:

  • Purchasing an investment property is a major decision, so don't rush it! Take the time to think critically about if an investment property is right for you, what kind of investment property is right for you, and, when you find a property, if it is the best investment property for you. There is absolutely no need to rush! Take your time so that you can be 100% (or at least 99%) confident in your end decision.

The winter may have Christmas, the spring may have flowers, the summer may have backyard BBQ’s, but here at Team Ken Richter we are particularly fond of Autumn. The fall is is an absolutely striking season, filled with deep golds and burgundy’s, crunchy leaves, warm scarves and pumpkins. Although we love warm summer days, fall cannot be matched.

The autumn season is fleeting. This winter is predicted to be a cold one, so if ever there were a time to hold onto the fall season and get the most you possibly can out of it, this is it. We are so lucky to get to experience all four seasons here in Calgary, no matter how short some of them may be. Soak them in. Experience them as deeply as you can.

That being said, here is our 2018 Autumn Bucket List:

Winter is coming.

With snow arriving and more to come, it is officially time to do all the little projects you have been neglecting so far this autumn. After all, no one likes to do hard labour in the freezing cold. The weather is going to reach a high of 16 degrees on Saturday, giving you the perfect day to complete everything on your to-do list!

Autumn is a great time for finishing renovation projects you started in the spring/summer and beginning new ones to prepare your home for winter. Remember that home renovations are an important part of keeping your property up to date and in the best condition possible. They may cost you upfront, but they add incredible value to your property. We highly recommend taking regular stock of your home and

Inner city Calgary has been rebuilding and rebranding to make Calgary a safer, cleaner environment for people. Neglected neighbourhoods are getting a major facelift to make older homes safe and to give existing communities a fresh start.

One of the most tangible ways you can see this desire to rebuild is in the new infills popping up everywhere. An infill is a property that has been built in place of an older property in an existing community, or simply a new home on new land in a community. Infills are a great way to add modern homes to older communities.

There are many advantages to buying an infill: the home is brand new, there are existing services (such as bus routes, shopping centres, etc.) nearby and you are inner-city, rather than
