Any investment involves risk, be it a shortsighted clothing purchase or auto financing – buy an ill-fitting garment and you’re out the time and gas it takes to return it; buy a lemon and you’ll have even worse financial obligations. Any time consumers make a purchase, there’s the possibility that it will be the wrong one – a meal they won’t like, a movie they can’t stand, a service that won’t meet expectation – so why all the bad press about renting-to-own?
Understanding risk is what makes a smart investor and, similarly, a smart consumer. No one would buy a stick of gum for $100; that’s just not a smart choice. Rent-to-own as a financing option isn’t necessarily a bad choice, but it can be fraught with hardships for consumers who don’t take the time…

You see them all the time in home design magazines – house plans with grand staircases at the back of the foyer; fireplaces in the bathrooms of lofty master suites; picture windows that let in an abundance of natural light; and bedrooms that double as small lofts. Certainly, aesthetics make a difference when you’re considering a home plan design. Savvy homebuyers, however, are able to look beyond superficial considerations to really get a feel for the home’s livability.
Livability is about more than just having the most square footage and the right amenities. It’s also about how the space flows within those square feet – how it accommodates your needs and adapts to your changing circumstances. Huge foyers and grand…

Guest Blog: Building your home according to your style!
There can be few more exciting and nerve wracking experiences in life than building your own home. Your home, so the saying goes, is a reflection of who you are. It’s also a reflection of your priorities. Do you value space and simplicity? Do you crave cosiness and intimacy? Do you relish the outdoors, or prefer the comfort of a wide screen and a plush sofa? Asking these questions of yourself can help you and the people you’ve entrusted to design and build your home make the right decisions. The end result?
