Market Report for Montreal Ouest - July 2010 The MLS ® system recorded 2 sales in Montreal-Ouest this July. 3 new homes came to market, a drop of 2 homes over the consistent 5 for the 3 previous months this season. The average price for the 2 sales was $475,000 and discounted an average of 4% off the last asking price. The month’s inventory is consistently low due to the smaller number of homes and that it attracts families who look to raise their children in a stable climate.

Market Report for Montreal Ouest For May 2010 May 2010 in Montreal-Ouest was an average month for the sector. 5 new homes came to market in the MLS ® system. This is the reigning average for the last 12 months.  And the same average in sales was met for the 3 homes sold with an average value of $598,000 sales price.

Credit rating is the means of assessing the credit worthiness of individuals, companies, states and countries. It indicates the ability of the debtor (individual, company, state or country) to fulfill his financial commitments. Credit rating can refer to personal, corporate or sovereign credit rating. Personal Credit Rating: In the US, creditors use a scale of 0-9 in order to rank a debtor. The numbers can be preceded by the alphabets R or I.

If Shakespeare's Hamlet were a 20-something living in Toronto today, chances are he'd be working on his first career. He'd have some inheritance in the bank, he might even be living in his mother's basement. He'd have little job security, no pension and would probably be soliloquizing about the same dilemma as everyone else his age: To buy or not to buy, that is the question; Whether 'tis nobler on the pocketbook to suffer the outrageous rent, or to take up a sea of mortgage payments, and by doing so, retire with equity. With interest rates at the lowest they've been in more than 50 years and with home and condo prices in decline for the first time since 1996, many potential first-time buyers are viewing this as their best chance to buy into an otherwise unaffordable market. That's part...
