Untimely, too, since more uncertainty surrounding the removal of the maligned HST won’t help matters on higher-priced properties. This blogger is also a taxpayer and wishes Mr. Rennie all the best in recouping my money, but man we ain’t making it easy for the poor fellow, are we!
$5,000 sounds nice but seeing all the great stuff $5,000 buys, it kind of puts spending $750,000 $745,000 into perspective. As a bit of inspiration when you’re feeling down, I offer Mr. Rennie a quote from a Realtor operating in Southern California: “It’s nothing a lower price can’t fix.”
