We’re finally going to say goodbye to 2016 and hello to 2017! A new chapter in our lives shall begin!
Today, Team Leading Edge shares some ideas on how to max out the fun on your New Year’s Eve party.
PREPARE A STRATEGY FOR THE FOOD & DRINKS
1. Cook your own food!
This will be fun. Cost-wise, experience tells us that restaurant/fast-food prices shoot up on New Year’s Eve. Try choosing a meal that everybody loves but you aren’t able to cook often; lobster + baby back ribs. Yum!
2. Sweet treats should be enjoyable.
Think: Candy, cookie, pastry, ice cream! Prepare something that everybody can munch on all throughout New Year’s Eve.
Conserving energy in a home is a good thing. And people insulate, design, and attempt to make their homes run as efficiently and with as little energy as possible. Recent changes in the Solar Energy industry MAY make the economics of this more practical:
Costs are dropping. (Though they are still significant)
The energy you generate is free
There are still tax benefits in many places
Sometimes adding solar increases a homes value (check with us, we can tell you!)
There are downsides. As there are with with any potential improvement to your home. Below is a handy graphic that explains it. Want more details? Would you like to know how this impacts home values in Edmonton? Give us a call today. We would be happy to discuss it
One of the best things about the real estate industry is that we get to work with a lot of nice people as well help people move. Home inspectors are some of those people, and Dave Watson is (in our estimation) one of those nice people.
Dave has put together some home maintenance tips below in a handy graphic. We hope that you find it useful. Merry Christmas to Dave and the rest of the nice people that we get to work with each day.

Hard. That’s the word that best describes moving in the winter.
Today, Team Leading Edge has gathered a few pointers to help you get through it.
USE THE PROFESSIONALS
Time is of the essence; you should not waste your time bothering all your friends into to trying to help you carry all your furniture, from your old property to your new one. Instead, simply hire a moving company. These professionals know how to get things done in this harsh environment, while you can stay safe and sound inside your new home.
MONITOR THE WEATHER
Temperature shifts instantly in the winter, a drizzle of rain can change to ice in no time so it’s best to have salt ready. Shoving and salting the driveway can help the moving company do their work
