The Bruce Peninsula Real Estate Team

Hello From The Land of The Snow,

We survived the storm of 2019!

The Bruce Peninsula is covered with a few feet of fresh new snow.

If the snow sticks around it will be great timing for the Tobermory Winter Carnival on February 16th, which we are very excited and proud to be a sponsor of every year!

Making the transition from the busy holiday season to spring can be challenging. To help make this season a little brighter, I’ve pulled together some information you may be interested in - tips about how to protect your home, your family, and even save some money. Let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to hearing from you!

Is Your Home Pet Friendly?

Nothing can replace a beloved family pet, but taking a few simple precautions can reduce the risk of several common household dangers and help ensure your home is a safe environment for the entire family.


Food on the counter can cause pets to jump up, accidentally turning on the stove or pulling boiling water or grease onto themselves and nearby children. Animals on the counter itself may bump or nudge flammable objects onto the stove, causing a fire. Take a close look at your environment and make sure pets are never left unattended around fire or heat sources.


Pets are a lot like toddlers - they get into everything. Most people know roughly which foods are OK for their pets and keep toxic foods out of reach or behind closed doors. However, many people overlook the harm that human medication can do to their pets and leave their medications on low, easy-to-access tables or in purses or bags on the floor. Keep all medications where your pets can’t reach them.

Cleaning Products:

We teach our children early not to ingest cleaning products, but the best we can do for our pets is to keep dangerous chemicals out of their reach. One common mistake even well-meaning people make is disregarding chemicals left on the floor or in the mop bucket after cleaning. Pets may accidentally drink cleaning water that’s left around, and pets who come in contact with a recently cleaned wet floor may get harmful chemicals on their paws or in their fur that can poison them when they lick it off. Similarly, certain essential oils that create a harmless and pleasant aroma to humans can be highly toxic to pets, especially cats.


Common garden and house plants are another threat to your pets. Lilies, peace lilies, hibiscus, hydrangeas, amaryllis, chrysanthemums, philodendrons, azaleas, tulips, narcissus, and rhododendron bulbs can cause intestinal, heart, or kidney problems - even death. Check your home and yard for these plants and find a complete list of toxic plants on the ASPCA website.

3 Ways Your Home Improvement Project Can Affect Your Insurance

Home improvement projects are great for making sure your home meets your needs and can deliver long-lasting benefits. However, before you start your next project, be sure to consider the effect the project will have on your insurance.

1. Home Replacement Cost:

Any renovations or improvements you make on your home could change how much it would cost to replace it - and if your home is under-insured, it could mean a reduction in the claim payment if you have to file a claim. Be sure to adjust the replacement cost of your home to guarantee you’ll be fully reimbursed in the event of damage or destruction.

2. Attractive Nuisance:

Failing to account for the hazards of your home while construction is underway can make it an “attractive nuisance” that can put those who are drawn to your construction at risk. Attractive nuisances can create potential liability hazards and increase your home insurance rates. Dedicating time and resources to minimizing attractive nuisances on your property can limit your risk.

3. Builder's Risk:

Depending on the size and duration of the project, you may want to look into an additional builder’s risk policy to protect your home during construction. Most of these policies will protect you from things like loss or damage from severe weather and other unforeseeable events.
