How Does Jim Help You?
Jim Cook at MHC is dedicated to helping clients achieve their mortgage goals. You’ve come this far and now it’s time to act.
You’re looking for a mortgage, but do you know which questions to ask your broker? Here are 4 that you need to ask while shopping.
It’s no secret that buying a home is a big deal. Whether it’s your first time or you’re an experienced buyer, it’s important to be educated and informed on the process while knowing what your options are.
Everyone’s mortgage expires at some point. When that time comes for you, it’s important to know that you do have a choice. You don’t have to settle for the same rate and term of your old mortgage.
Are you moving from your current home but would like to keep it as a rental? Or perhaps you’re wanting to sell it completely. Jim can help with either scenario and show you your options.
A mortgage for an investment property is actually quite similar to that of your own home. However, there are some differences…
More people are refinancing their mortgage or withdrawing equity from their home to consolidate their debt each day. Do you know what your options are when it comes to paying off debt with one of these methods?
About Kincardine & Port Elgin
Located along Lake Huron, Kincardine is a town with a population of 11,174. It was originally founded in 1848 and was officially formed as a municipality in 1999.
Kincardine is best known for being the home of the Bruce Nuclear Development Plant (Bruce Power), part of Ontario Power Generation. Kincardine has been home to Bruce Power since the early 1970’s. The town is also a popular attraction for tourists thanks in large part to its beautiful, sand-filled beaches and famous Scottish culture.
Not far from Kincardine is Port Elgin, another area served by Jim Cook. The community of Port Elgin was originally named “Normanton” before being incorporated as a town in 1874. Combined with the communities of Southampton and Saugeen Township, the three towns make up the “Town of Saugeen Shores”.
Much like Kincardine, several Port Elgin residents are employed by Bruce Power. Saugeen Shores has a population of approximately 12,000.
One of the best attributes of Port Elgin are the beautiful sunsets it provides. It has widely been considered as having the best sunsets in the world, and in 2007 during a CBC Television competition to determine the Seven Wonders of Canada, the sunsets in Saugeen Shores were among the finalists.
