A panoramic view of St. John's, Newfoundland was something I had to see today.  We sure have been visited by old man winter in February, but today the sun was shining it all its glory, the sky was blue, and I think most Newfoundlanders were feeling pretty much on top shelf.

You've heard it a million times from friends, family, relatives, colleagues and even people you don't know: "When you rent you're throwing your money away!" Very true.  And the longer you rent, the higher the rent rate becomes and you'll throw more and more of your hard-earned dollars away. Here...

Not so many years ago, the thought of an inspection on a home you were buying was basically never considered.  When you viewed a property, you looked at the roof, open and closed the windows, flushed the toilet, checked the basement for signs of water, and did a number of other things.  Then, rel...
