THE NEST

Author: rostrum

Spruce Grove is quickly evolving as one of the top places in the country to raise a family. The growing city is riddled with parks, walking trails, golf courses, and recreation centers. As the summer begins to heat up, there is no better opportunity to get outside and enjoy what Spruce Grove has to offer. Summer always seems to fly by, so we went out and found all of the ways you can get out and cool down without leaving Spruce Grove.

We hear it all the time, “Oh but it’s so small, how will my furniture fit? Won’t I feel cramped?” The answer is simple, when done right a small space is cozy and relaxing. Since you cannot fill your rooms with clutter your space is soothing and you’ll find yourself focusing on your tasks rather than being distracted. When you close the door after a long day your stress left outside and you can sit down and take a deep breath. In addition, you can be adventurous with colours, textures and multi-functional furniture. The possibilities are endless! Read more about how to live in small spaces here.

TD Bank. If you are purchasing a home and it is approximately 24 months (2 years) down the road until possession TD can grant you peace of mind by holding a rate for you. The rate we save is not the best rate out there because the best rates are reserved for homes that will be moved into with 120 days, not 2 years down the road. As the possession date inches closer we amend that 2 yr rate hold to an 18 month rate which gets lower as we are holding it for less time. As we get to the 12 month possession period we can save the 12 month rate which is a better rate than the 18 month rate, and as we get 6 months from possession we can save the 6 month rate which is equivalent to the best rate out there at that time! And if rates drop from the 6 month mark up to 1 week until possession we can amend your rate. This rate hold is your peace of mind just in case during the 2 years it takes to build your home rates go up drastically, you are protected as a valued client and know what the worst case scenario is so you can budget your payments for the future, but if rates drop we can always save the better rate as the closing/possession date inches closer. This is the benefit of a rate hold! Read more here.

The beauty of small spaces. There are many ways to make a small space your ideal home. From choosing multipurpose furniture that does double or even triple duty, think Murphy beds that double as dining room tables, to something so simple as furniture placement, a cozy place can be the envy of all your friends. All it takes is a little bit of thought and creativity to create a hip and stylish space. We scoured the internet to find you 28 great homes that are smaller than 1000 Square Feet, the smallest being 68 square feet! To find out more simply click here.
