Retirement Living, Origin Evergreen, Mississauga

Is It Time To Talk with Mom and Dad about Downsizing?

In my personal life, I remember talking to my parents about downsizing. Then suddenly one passed and now it has become more difficult to discuss with my mother because there are too many memories in that home.

I, myself, have many happy moments in the home where I grew up. I did not expect to change my perspective of asking advice from my mother to trying to make healthy decisions for her. As her health becomes an issue, the conversation of care becomes something we discuss quite often. The financial realities of elder care and the direct cost of nursing homes or assisted living centers needs us all to reevaluate how we will deal with these issues.

Origin Evergreen - This is what Retirement Living should be. State of the art facilities catering to a wide range of needs and the mobility levels of both active and non-active seniors! Six beautiful "Garden Flats" are available: 1 bedroom + den ,and 2 bedroom + den from $299,000 -$460,000. There are other units also available in the highrise.
Here are some of the units available in this facility:

Seasons Greetings from Betty Bart

Happy Holidays,

The holiday season is fast approaching, if it hasn't already started for some of us. I would like to take this opportunity to wish you, and all your loved ones, the merriest of holidays. We don't have any snow, yet, but Santa is in the malls after coming into town during the Santa Claus parade in Mississauga, Oakville, and of course the big one, The Toronto Santa Claus Parade.

I hope you take some time to sit back with your families and have some hot chocolate, something extra if you partake, and just look at the eyes and see the enjoyment of everyone around you.

I'm just going to reiterate what I have been saying regarding real estate, we are short on inventory and during the month of December, the list gets a little smaller. There are still some HOT buyers out there and as for the sellers, why not start the New Year knowing that a new home is just around the corner and when you pack up the decorations, just keep on packing.

Michael Polzler, Executive Vice President, RE/MAX Ontario-Atlantic Canada said it best: " 2009 was without question the year of the house. Real estate not only defied industry and analysts' predictions in 2009 -- it's performance went well beyond the realm of expectation by boosting consumer confidence levels and ultimately kick starting the national economic engine. Low interest rates were the principal factor driving home buying activity. NO ONE CAN DISCOUNT THE VALUE THAT CANADIANS PLACE ON OWNING A HOME."

If you see some information in the Market Watch that you would like to discuss, call/email me and let's sit over a glass of egg nog and talk about it. I'm here. I just need your call.

Merry Christmas and the Happiest of the Holiday Season to all. I look forward to continuing to provide you with valuable information in the coming year, and maybe, we will do some business together.

Kindest Regards,
