Throndson and Associates Airdrie Realtor’s Market Update And Selling Tips

Soft sales continue in both the Calgary and Airdrie housing market. With rising inventories, house prices have remained relatively flat. this is partially due to changes in the lending industry.

Airdrie, Canada - May 17, 2018 /PressCable/ —

Changes to the lending industry and a challenging economic recovery are weighing on sales activity in Calgary’s housing market.

Supply levels have not adjusted to the weaker demand environment, and that is preventing price recovery.

“Slower sales do not come as a surprise, given the economy has not yet improved enough to offset the impact of changes in the lending industry,” said CREB chief economist Ann-Marie Lurie.

“While the rising inventories are being monitored, prices have remained relatively flat as gains in some areas of the city have been offset by declines in other areas.”

5 PRO PAINTING HACKS

Painting seems simple — just slap it on, right? — There many things to think about for a truly professional look. Next time you paint, consider these tips for a finish you can be proud of.

Prevent splatter with plastic wrap

Remove as much furniture as possible when painting, there will often be some awkward objects remaining — particularly bathroom fixtures. Use plastic wrap to cover these and paint without the fear of spoiling them with errant drips or splatter.

Stop the smell of paint from becoming overpowering

If you add a couple of drops of vanilla extract to a can of paint, you can avoid the overpowering smell of paint and enjoy a sweet fragrance instead.

Use Q-tips to fix small mistakes

When painting it is important to fix any drips or mistakes quickly, before the paint dries. Keep Q-tips to hand so that you can act fast and accurately.

Remove painter’s tape the easy way

There’s nothing worse than your carefully marked-out tape peeling away paint with it. Avoid that by using a hairdryer on low heat. Point it at the tape from about 7 cm away to soften the tape’s adhesive. This will make pulling it off easy and neat.

Keep brushes soft

When finished painting (whether for the day or longer), soak your brushes in fabric softener. This stops them from becoming dry and stiff. Keeping brushes soft makes painting easier and the results better. To do this:

1. Rinse the brushes with water only.

2. Mix half a cup of fabric softener into 3.75 litres of warm water.

3. Swirl the brushes in the mixture for around 10 seconds each.

4. Lay them flat overnight to dry.

May 24, 2018

DUBLIN — An abortion debate that has inflamed passions in Ireland for decades will come down to a single question on Friday: yes or no? The referendum on whether to repeal the country's strict anti-abortion law is being seen by anti-abortion activists as a last-ditch stand against what they view as a European norm of abortion-on-demand, while for pro-abortion rights advocates, it is a fundamental moment for declaring an Irish woman's right to choose. Opinion surveys suggest a continuing change of attitudes in Ireland, a traditionally Roman Catholic country that surprised many by voting in favor of same-sex marriage in...

Italy steps toward populist government as Conte gets mandate

May 24, 2018

ROME — Italy's president asked political neophyte Giuseppe Conte to try to form a government Wednesday, giving the euroskeptic 5-Star Movement and anti-immigrant League a shot at running western Europe's first populist government. Conte, a law professor who never has held political office, met with President Sergio Mattarella for nearly two hours amid concern in Brussels and markets made skittish by the possibility of Europe's third-largest economy taking an isolationist turn. Conte, 53, immediately sought to reassure international allies, confirming Italy's place and commitments in Europe and acknowledging the "delicate and difficult phase" the European Union was entering with budget...

Italy: PM pick had library pass, no official status at NYU

May 24, 2018

MILAN — A law professor put forward as Italy's next premier faced suspicions Tuesday that he overstated his academic credentials, including referring on his resume to seven summers of studies at New York University that turned out to involve only having library privileges there. The 12-page resume covering the years since Guiseppe Conte earned his law degree from Rome's Sapienza University in 1988 includes entries for time spent at an array of top universities in the United States, Britain and France, without specifying the courses or areas of research he undertook. The curriculum vitae states that Conte, 53, "stayed" at...

Facebook chief faces EU grilling over his 'digital monster'

May 24, 2018

BRUSSELS — Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg faced tough questions from European Union lawmakers Tuesday over what one of them branded Zuckerberg's "digital monster," and he apologized for the way the social network has been used to produce fake news, interfere in elections and sweep up people's personal data. At a hearing in the European Parliament in Brussels, legislators sought explanations about the growing number of false Facebook accounts and whether Facebook will comply with new EU privacy rules, but many were left frustrated by Zuckerberg's lack of answers.
