RBC helps take some of the stress out of moving



    New site offers tips and advice for those moving to a new home or
    community

    TORONTO, Sept. 3 /CNW/ - Whether it's taking a job in another city,
getting married, or finding a bigger place to raise a family, most Canadians
will move homes several times in their lives. In fact, according to 2006
Census Canada data, 41 per cent of Canada's population aged five or older had
moved at least once in the previous five years. To help Canadians move more
comfortably, RBC has launched a new site, www.findingyourhome.ca to give
people easy access to a multitude of moving-related information.
    "Moving to a new home is exciting, but it can also be hectic, even
stressful for many of us, especially if it means relocating to a new
municipality, province or country," said Teresa Tolhurst, senior manager, RBC
Personal Financial Services. "But preparation and planning, as well as some
good advice can take much of the hassle and anxiety out of a move. Our
comprehensive web site with tips and solutions makes it easier to settle into
your new home stress-free."
    The site, www.findingyourhome.ca, is the only Canadian bank-offered
resource to provide aspiring and existing homeowners with ready online access
to extensive information about:

    
    -   Finding a home
    -   Buying a home
    -   Selling your home
    -   Renting a house or apartment
    -   Moving to a new home
    -   Getting settled once the move is over
    

    Each topic offers a robust collection of tips, checklists, information
and advice on all facets of the home buying and moving process, from start to
finish. The site also links to www.communitycorner.ca - another RBC-related
resource and first of its kind among financial institutions in Canada - which
allows visitors to view demographics, utility company information and
community amenities such as schools, child care and shopping. Visitors can
view three separate neighbourhoods of interest and do a side-by-side
comparison of each community's features.
    "We know there's much more to home buying than mortgage considerations,"
added Tolhurst. "That's why we set out to give Canadians, and those new to
Canada, a practical and relevant source of information that takes a look at
the whole home-buying picture."
    New information will be added or updated throughout the year and these
sites complement a wide range of resources RBC already has online. For more
information, about how you can make the most of your move, visit
