This week's "Home of the Week," is not bad, but of course pricey at $1.8 million. For that you get baseboard heaters, which means electric heat, which means EXPENSIVE!!! At least they haven't taken all the charm out of the house, like last week's and it does have a decent size front and back yard. Backs onto the Don Valley Parkway, so could be noisy; I'll pass.
I actually like the look of this week's "Condo of the Week." At $740,000 with monthly maintenance fees of $355 it's not crazy priced like some. Love the kitchen and the balcony/terrace. Would make the den a second bedroom. I would never buy the place, but do like the look of it.
The horse pills I was prescribed are doing a number on my stomach, but will persevere as I am breathing a bit better, and that means a lot; and yes I feel as though I am taking the larger pills!
Another new month is upon us. Lets hope the weather continues to get better. We have enjoyed temperatures in the high teens, low 20's centigrade, so very happy with that. The heating went off yesterday, and here's hoping it doesn't come back on until at least October. As I have mentioned before our bills in this house are a fraction of what they were in the farmhouse. Our hydro bill was under $130 for the past two months, and remember I use the dryer now to dry the laundry as we can't hang it out. Our heating bill for this past month was just over $80, which was a little more than normal? Not sure why there, but still good. I will continue to pay $75 a month year round on the gas bill as I find that way I can have a credit for winter months when the heating bill will be higher.
We still haven't had a house/property tax bill, as we have not been assessed yet. I did see an MPAC car knocking about the neighbourhood last week, so am guessing they have or will be assessing us shortly. Now some people have been in their houses up to three years and have not been assessed, so they will have a bloody big tax bill. We will have been in a year in June, so we will owe a years money plus whatever we owe to get up to date. I have been putting money away weekly so have more than enough money to pay for the year, plus what we owe to bring us up to date.
I wonder if everyone else has had enough common sense to do that? The people who haven't paid in say three years, will owe at least $10,000 if not more for the three years, that's a lot of money to come up with.
Sorry if I didn't get to comment on your blog yesterday I was really tired all day, not helped by the coughing and the trips to the bathroom everytime I had something to eat..TMI? (too much information!)
