Any Canadians here? (in Off-topic)

Thought I would ask.

I have been involved in the mortgage, investment and insurance business for the last few years.

I work out of Ontario, Canada. I can do mortgages anywhere in Canada, but investments/insurance you have to live in Ontario.

If you need something, or know anyone that does send me a message :)

My average case is hovering around $11,000 saved a year for a family with a debt consolidation.

If you have any questions ask too, I love giving out information!

I'm currently in closing on a house here in texas, is there (that you know of) a law that states they have to have electrical coded and grounded before selling?

If not then I get to rewire the house myself, yay, and don't really want to do it.

I'm not too well versed on American law.

In Canada, if you go firm on a sale and didn't have a clause (or waived a clause) stating that all electrical/flooring/fire is up to code at the cost of the seller then you are out of luck.

Usually a home inspection will determine if that clause should be waived or not.

We bought an investment property in Ontario where we uncovered shoddy electrical and made the seller pay to fix it out of pocket, but they agreed to our initial clauses prior to the sale.

Not sure if that helps at all :D

Cool I didn't know you were Canadian. I am in Toronto, don't think I will ever be able to afford to own a place :(

Much like the smoker that is healthy up until their cancer diagnoses, no one can afford a place until they actually buy one.

I have quite a few clients in Toronto, right around the University and Wellington area. Let me buy you lunch some time over the next month and see if there is any opportunity in your situation to set you on the path. Hell, even if I could put some extra $$$ in your pocket over the next couple of years it would be worth it :D

I am pretty young (27), which might be why my outlook looks grim haha. I am also totally against living in or owning a condo, which seems like the only place I could afford.

i turn 30 in January and just bought a house... idk why you say 27 is too young. i also have 3 kids and one due tomorrow... as well as a kickass job

I am 28 and just bought my 3rd place not too long ago. Age is only a number when it comes to money :)

Worst case scenario is you get a free lunch. I will CM you my cell number and you can text me if you are interested.
