We're thinking of buying our home this spring and we have yet to decide where we want to live. Option one: Buying an older house , probably 1940-1960's. The good thing about it would be owning our own land (which always appeals to me). But then I start thinking of all the maintenance, landscaping, r...

Thanks for all the details, guys! Thanks kombat for region-specific information. Few things don't really apply to us: - GST(an older house) - No CMHC insurance since we're putting down 25% downpayment - No Land Transfer tax - this is our first house Thanks for a bit of an estimate for misc expenses ...

No, I'm not going to ask how much I can afford :D Me and my better half (really it's more like a third) will be buying a house in the spring. We've got the downpayment saved up now I'm trying to figure out all the other costs. It's our first purchase so I'm asking for some education. Question #1: Wh...

Anybody uses Quicken? I'd like something fairly advanced so we can set up budgets and be able to track all our investments too.

I didn't the history behind this guy. Although I did shop at United Furniture Warehouse quite a few times. There's another success story out of Vancouver actually - Brian Scudamore who started a junk removal company when he was in high school and now owns 1-800-GOT-JUNK? corporation. I'm a big fan o...

I loved his Automatic Millionaire book, I think it was great. One thing about his repetitiveness. I find that basics about money managements are fairly similar from book to book. Not because noone writes anything new, but simply because these are true tactics that work. He just puts a different spin...

I quit 5 weeks ago after reading "The easy way to quit smoking" by Allen Carr. Great book, if you're thinking of butting out - good read for sure. I just told myself that I see no point in smoking, put my last smoke out and haven't touched it since then. Now I don't even think about smokin...

ING is a good place for it. It safely stored and at the same time a bit of a hassle to get. This way you won't be spending it if it was sitting in your checking account and at the same time is safe and sound.

Good job on putting those money aside.

Hello,

I'm organizing our family financials, and in need of personal software for tracking expenses and budgeting.

My bank supports MS Money and Quicken. Which one is better?

Any advice?

Are there any downsides to having your portfolio primarily in ETFs?
I think I'm ready to dump my mutual funds and start investing in ETFs.

There's a lot of good things about ETFs (lower MER, easier to trade, no fees, etc.).

Just buy a smart car. - It's a mercedes brand, so you can always say you're driving a Benz. - It is super cheap on gas. Or should I say diesel? Cause yes, it runs on diesel. - Easy to park and cheaper to park (some parking companies have discounts for them) - Extremely trendy these days. - Just a fu...
