It seems to me that is not how most homeowners would see it. Mh real estate investments Rick knows why the book is called that. 76 Monte Carlo on cement blocks. I talk about my Rule of 90.

July, what else do you have to do? First, don’t believe what the pointy heads in Ottawa tell you. Realtors rejoiced upon hearing the news. Proof, they cried, that people are not overextended!

RRSPs and tax-free savings accounts, per your current statements. Pathetic GICs and dead-end cash in your chequing account.

Now, deduct from this total what you owe. Then the car loan, an outstanding line of credit or HELOC. Money the CRA is up your butt about.
