Forum Winners and Best of March 2009

Canadian Money Forum Winners

Earlier this month, we launched the Canadian Money Forum to provide a place for readers to get their questions answered and to provide a convenient place to discuss financial topics.  As promised, we have chosen 8 random registrants out of about 500 for $25 gift cards.  The winners are listed below:

Top 5 Articles of March 2009

  1. Is Your Home an Investment? – This question generated a lot of discussion as there seems to be a lot of differing opinion on this one.  What do you think?  Is your home an investment?  Be sure to check out the comments.
  2. Irrational Market Pessimism? – Ed Rempel has some evidence that the severe market correction is due to irrational market pessimism.  What do you think?
  3. Wealth Strategy: Track Your Net Worth – As you may know, I’m a big fan of tracking net worth as a way to increase wealth.  If you’re not tracking your net worth now, check out the article to see how easy it is.
  4. It’s a Great Time to Buy Your First House – With housing prices lower, government incentives, and low mortgage rates, it may be the ideal time to purchase your first home.
  5. American Express Business Gold – Free Flight for Signing up! – This article turned out to be a bit more popular than I had anticipated.  For a limited time, American Express Business Gold is offering 25,000 aeroplan points for new sign ups which is enough to fly anywhere in North America.  In addition to that, they are waiving the annual fee for first year ($180).  This means that you get a free flight for nothing out of pocket!

    Hey I’m new and I guess this is as good a place as any to see if anyone knows of a good loss mitigation training course?

    I keep hearing about people making tons of money becoming foreclosure consultants.
    So, If you have any info or you have purchased a good course, please share. I’m retired and looking for a home based business that I can earn a decent income with.

    Thanks,
