Red Deer has an abundance of family activities to do during the winter. Here is just a few popular activities to do in our beautiful city. 

 Ice Skating

The City of Red Deer sets up 76 outdoor ice rinks every year. These rinks are easily found in each community. Most communities offer a rink set up for playing hockey and rink dedicated just for skating. Bower Ponds is the perfect place for family and friends to gather.

While every stocking should have one or two just-for-fun items, too many stocking stuffers are bits of junk that get thrown in a desk drawer, and then, once the feeling of guilt wears off, put in a trash can or tag sale. So, the things I have chosen are those a man will enjoy using the moment he pulls them from his stocking and for a long time afterwards!

 

Sax

Sax are Canada’s rated #1 men’s underwear! Worldwide men are rocking these undeniably soft, and cozy underwear that are perfect for the stocking.

Shaving Kit

Easy pick and good to have! Shaving kits will never go out of style, check out your local barber to see what’s in stock this Christmas for shaving kits!

Toque

Interest Rates

Rates are on an upward trend, and have been for 14 months, and there’s no sign of it slowly creeping upwards. 


Opportunity for the next 6-8 months:

Rates are still historically low and home prices are still on sale. Any clients who can buy should take advantage now. Don’t wait! 
This year we’ve been seeing incomes climbing steadily (oil & gas workers and business owners) who have the required 2 year income history to qualify for a mortgage. We feel that this trend will continue which is indicative of a strong 2019!

MOPOLO 

I highly recommend all of my clients downloading this app,It is so valuable to all buyers and sellers!

Some of the benefits of the app are:


-Free credit report
-CMA Online valuation
