With winter approaching, cold and flu season is in full swing in most places. The chaos of the upcoming holiday season—combined with the stress of selling your home and planning a move—can erode your immune system and leave you vulnerable to illness. However, infection may be preventable with early, aggressive action. In addition to the standard advice like getting plenty of sleep and washing your hands frequently, here are a few overlooked strategies for staying healthy this season:
Drink hot tea with honey and a squeeze of lemon juice. Inhaling the steam from hot tea will help the cilia—or hair follicles—in your nose rid the body of germs. Meanwhile, lemon juice is rich in Vitamin C and is believed to decrease the severity of colds
Sure, we all think about it. How nice it would be, how exciting it’ll be. But now the question is – when? When is a good time to sell your home?
If you’re trying to decide, just know that it’s a great market for sellers right now! Now that doesn’t mean do it now. There are a lot of things to consider first.
Let’s get personal
You have to take your own personal situation into account. Take a good, hard look at your finances. If you’ve paid off all of your non-home debt, you’re sitting good. Ask yourself, “Can I actually afford the move?” It is indeed exciting, but it comes down to dollars and cents. Do you want professional movers, and things like that.

But, this morning it's 8:15, means that's our Monday morning mortgage tip, like I said, with Mark Waterman here from Great Western Bank. And we'll let him give today's Monday tip away. And then a few information tips, sort of details, after he speaks here. So, take it away, Mark.
- Thank you very much, Shane. Appreciate it. It's good to be back. My Monday morning mortgage…
