Welcome to your June 2014 Update!

From Tania & Tina...
First of all, if you're reading this in Gmail - click above on 'Display Images Below'.  
Is it just us - or is 2014 flying by?  June is here, the rains are about to start (hopefully - because I've had grass seed down for a week already), and the kids are almost out of school.  No surprise here but the Calgary and area markets are GREAT...or not so great depending on which side of the fence you're on!  Homes are selling for (on average), 99% of list price of course assuming they're priced accurately - that's crazy!  Average days on market for single family homes is about 2 months, but realistically for homes that are priced well, we'd say the average days on market are 1 to 7!  Time will tell if the summer slows down a bit.  :)
CALGARY HERALD, June 6, 2014  - Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. says it will no longer offer mortgage insurance for homes that cost $1 million or more, starting July 31, 2014, even if the buyer has made a deposit of 20% or more.  Click the above link for more details.

Five Tips - Spring Yard Clean-Up

1. Prune away dead and damaged branches. Where tree or shrub branches have been damaged by cold, snow, and wind, prune back to live stems.

2. Cut back and divide perennials as needed. Prune flowering perennials to a height of 4–5 inches and ornamental grasses to 2–3 inches to allow new growth to shoot up.

3. Clean Up Around Plants. Rake out fallen leaves and dead foliage (which can smother plants and foster disease), pull up spent annuals.

4. Compost Yard Waste. Dump collected leaves, cuttings, spent foliage, and last season’s mulch into your compost pile.

5. Prep Damaged Lawn Areas for Spring Seeding. In colder climates grass starts growing in April. Remove turf damaged by salt, plows, or disease to prepare for the seeding that should follow in a few weeks.
