Butchering the English Language and Krisztinaisms!

Those of you who’ve met me know I have a special way with words.  My Hungarian heritage has a tendency to “influence” my day to day speaking. Besides having an accent, I’ve been known to get pretty creative with English grammar.  Basically, if it makes sense to me, it rushes out of my mouth.  Thus, we arrive at “Krisztinaisms”.  Example:  Skieason.  The great thing about all Krisztinaisms, is that despite the fact that they are not proper English words, everyone understand them!  Take the aforementioned word Skiieason.  Why use two words to describe one thing? Combine Ski and Season and you get one of my favorite times of year.  I think this blog is going to be the perfect place to share my Krisztinaisms

I’m sure I can’t be the only one who does this.  What about sharing your Krisztinaisms with me?

2010 Camaro Accident in North Oakville. What a shame.

Some local Oakville News: My husband was driving along Dundas a few days ago (March 20, to be exact) when he passed a vehicle accident. It didn’t look like anyone was seriously hurt but there were several cars involved. The shocker was that one of the cars was a Brand New, (not available to the public at that time?) very sexy, 2010 Camaro. What a shame! I wonder if someone was “rubber necking” because of the Camaro and caused the accident! Anyway, my husband being the creative sort, put together a little youtube video.

Home Buyer’s Tips  — Mississauga, Oakville, Milton

 

Buying a home is the largest investment most people will make in their lifetime. The exercise is neither fast nor easy, but a little bit of knowledge will take most of the mystery out of the process.

Before embarking on your journey, take a moment to review the following tips. They will assist in making the process more efficient and take some of the stress out of home buying:

 

¨     Know how much you can afford.   Why waste time looking at homes that arenot in your price range?

¨     Determine your down payment. This will allow you to calculate how much youneed to borrow and establish a price point.

¨     Get pre-approved for a mortgage.

¨     Know where you want to live. Determine areas that best suit your needs.

¨     Decide what type of home you want to buy. There are a number of housing types available to today’s real estate consumers. Single-family detached homesare most popular but there are also semi-detached homes, links, condominiumapartments and townhomes, as well as co-ops from which to choose. Each hasdifferent characteristics that are more or less suited to individual lifestyles.

¨     Determine what you need in a home. How many bedrooms or bathrooms doyou need? Is there enough parking for your car(s)?

¨     Visit http://www.realtor.ca. The internet is a great starting point. It can help you totarget properties that meet your criteria and eliminate those that are unsuitable.

¨     Choose a realtor. Find an agent that you are comfortable with — someone youcan trust and who understands your needs.

¨     Hire a home inspector. Home inspections will identify any potential problemsand help to save you time and money.

¨     Investigate alternatives available to you. Government incentives have beenintroduced to stimulate activity in housing markets across the country. Two of theprograms that are currently available — access to RRSPs for first-timehomebuyers and the CMHC’s five per cent downpayment plan — help makehomeownership more attainable for all Canadians
