Time for Risk?
As we near the middle of the 2013 RRSP season, I have one piece of advice: take a look at downsizing your risk.
The interesting part of this cycle to me is that market is high again. The Dow Jones and S&P 500 are at levels not seen since before the crash of 2008. So here’s the question:
If we know the market high of 2000 was a bubble, and we know the market high of 2008 was a bubble, and we find ourselves in the same place today, what do we think this is?
It’s kind of the old, ‘If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck…’ question. The next question though is if it’s a cycle and we do exit, when do we get back in?
I think a good exit strategy also comes with a good re-entry strategy. “When ‘x’ happens, we’ll do this.” It automates your ideas in advance, when you are rational and able to make a decision rather than when things are difficult and a person’s biases may come to bear on the process.
I heard it said well once, “Amateurs think about tactics, professionals think about logistics.” Make sure you’ve got a pro on your side!

Home Buying Costs - Extra Expenses:
No matter what type of home or property you’re buying, plan on some extra expenses.
- A land transfer tax (a sales tax on property) in certain provinces
- A mortgage broker’s fee
- An appraisal fee
- Surveying costs (if the seller couldn’t come up with a current survey)
- A high-ratio mortgage insurance premium
- An interest adjustment. (Mortgages are normally calculated from the first of each month. If your closing date is the same as the beginning of your mortgage, there will be no adjustment. However, if your closing date is July and you move in on June 15, those last 15 days are the interest adjustment period. Your lender will expect you to cover the cost of the interest during that time.)
- Reimbursement to seller for the unused portion of any prepaid property taxes or utility bills
- Legal fees, and, if applicable, REALTOR fees®
- Title Insurance
- Moving Expenses … even if you handle this yourself.
- Hotel costs…sometimes you can’t get in right away and if you haven’t friends in your new place you may have to expense out accommodation and expenses for a couple of days.
- Pets… what if you need to house kennel them during the initial stages of the move.
There are lots of things to consider and it doesn’t hurt to set down and plan things out prior to move day. A good number of first time home buyers are told they will need to put 5% down as a down payment. I usually tell them to figure on having another 1.5% on hand to cover other expenses. So if you’re purchasing a home for $250,000 and you need 5% which would be $12,500 then figure on another $3750 to have on hand to cover the other expenses. No need to tell you this is only a guideline and it could end up being more or less.
