Life in Paradise - Why Move to Halton Hills

Many years ago my wife and I decided to look for a new place to raise our family. We had been living in an area of Toronto that had been exciting when we were single. However, now that we were starting our family, it didn't have those ingredients that we felt were important for raising a young family.

We had a vision of finding a location with hills, valleys, streams and walking trails. We pictured a smaller town with a little slower pace and friendly residents who would say "good morning" when passing on the street. With small children on the way, we were also looking for a location with a low crime rate and good quality education.

We spent several spring weekends going for day trips to areas just on the edge of the GTA. We had considered east and north-east of Toronto, however, Ajax, Whitby and Oshawa all seemed like simply a continuation of the built-up suburbs of Toronto, while places north-east lacked quick transportation alternatives for getting into the city for work or visiting of friends. Also we had looked north of Toronto and once again felt that that corridor was simply too densely populated for what we were looking for. We visited Guelph, Campbellville, Rockwood and Erin to the north-west.

One day in the Spring of 1990, while driving home from Erin, we noticed a directional sign with "Georgetown" written on it. We had vague recollections of hearing the name before, however, new nothing about the town. As we took a little drive around, we were both pleasantly surprised by what we were seeing. Rivers, valleys, parks, mature treed neighborhoods and a quaint little downtown main street. We noticed signs pointing to a Go Train station. We looked at each other and almost at the same instant said, "Let's drop in to a real estate office".

Three months later, in June, 1990, we moved into a cute little bungalow near the old Park district of Georgetown. Over the past 23 years, we have raised our two daughters, Christine and Martha and enjoyed making many new friends, both born-and-raised local Georgetown folks, as well as other newer residents such as ourselves. Our children grew up in a safe and friendly environment and loved their schools and wonderful committed teachers. They played soccer, took dance and singing lessons had part-time jobs through high school and hiked along portions of the Bruce Trail just outside of town. In short, they both had a wonderful and healthy upbringing in what I now like to call ........ "Paradise"!

†Adding Value & Peace-of-Mind Using Feng Shui

Feng Shui is an ancient oriental term that means "the way of wind and water".† It's all about energy, the flow of energy and how it enhances or detracts from your life.

Feng Shui developed thousands of years ago in little villages of the Orient.† It was called Folk Feng Shuii because each village had there own guidelines on how to use it.† Their livelihoods were dependent on it.† They studied the formations of the land and ways of the wind & water† to determine the best sitting for their survival.† Over time Feng Shui developed and was used by emperors to ensure their success.†

Other cultures have terms that mean the same thing. Europeans call† it Geomancy.† Architects used it for the physical layout and design of powerful cities such as Washington DC.

What the ancients discovered is that the placement and layout of physical objects in your environment effects the flow of energy in your life. Most people don't pay much attention to how placement impacts them.†

Feng Shui and associated disciplines comprise the study of these energy flows.† It also deals with how you should arrange your environment to gain the best possible advantages in your life.†††

For example,† the direction your house faces.† If you are building a new house, and you can decide which direction it faces, it would be good to know which direction will benefit your life the most.† And you can find out by using Feng Shui.† If you were buying an existing house and find out the direction was not set in your best interest, you would need to know how to use Feng Shui techniques to counter the ailment.

HOW REAL ESTATE MARKET CONDITIONS AFFECT YOUR OFFER PRICE
A hot market is a "sellerís market". During a sellerís market, properties can sell within a few days of being listed and there are often multiple offers. Sometimes homes even sell above the asking price. Though most buyers want to get a "deal" on a home, reducing your offer by even a few thousand dollars could mean that someone else will get the home you desire.

STAGINGÖ FOR A FASTER SALE AND HIGHER PRICE
There are many television shows today that focus on home staging. If you have not watched any, do yourself a favor and tune in. They all say the same thing: do not even consider putting your house on the market until you have taken a close look at its condition.

You will be rewarded with a faster sale and a higher offer.
