Top 4 Places to Visit in Banff

Banff is one of Canada’s most incredible national parks, offering nonstop natural beauty, notable locals, and endless entertainment and activities to attempt.  Regardless of whether you’re more of a resort or summer sport kind of person, you’ll find something that suits you perfectly.  These are the top places to visit when you’re at the very southern border of Alberta and why this park is paradise on Earth.

Lake Louise

Lake Louise could be a resort town of its own if it weren’t part of Banff.  In the summer you have the chance to boat and swim in the lake’s beautiful blue waters.  Trails are open surrounding the lake itself, and you can even take a ride to the top of the mountain to absorb the best views possible.  This area is incredibly gorgeous.

When Lake Louise is covered in a good coat of snow and ice in winter, skating opens up on the lake’s surface, and skiing opens up on the mountainsides.  You could spend a year in this area of the Banff National Park and never have two days be precisely the same.

Sunshine Village Ski Resort

This ski resort is the most recognizable part of Banff National Park.  From the endless snowy peaks and slopes to the cozy hot springs and spas, you’ll get to play and relax as much as you want.  This is a must-stay location because of the great mix of affordability and experiences, with the only way to get closer to being a local being to look at Banff homes for sale.  This ski resort has year-round attractions but shines the most in the winter.

Icefields Parkway

If you don’t love hiking but you want to take in some incredible views, a drive down the Icefields Parkway is the best way to ensure you get a great mixture of indoors and outdoors life.  There’s nothing quite like driving through this mountain range and getting to take in endless views of mountains, snow, sky, rivers, and lakes.

The only mistake some people make is getting out of their vehicles, which you shouldn’t do along this parkway unless you’re with a guide.  This park is packed to the brim with gorgeous wildlife, and it’s for the best if you don’t get too physically close to interacting with it.

Johnston Canyon

A canyon may not be what you expect to see in Banff, but the Johnston Canyon is a gorgeous trail that takes travelers down towards a river, deep into the ground itself.  Walking this trail in the summer gets you out of direct sunlight and allows you to feel the excitement of walking into the canyon itself.  Although it’s not as deep or wide as America’s Grand Canyon, there’s something so beautiful about the Johnston Canyon that it doesn’t feel like it falls short.  Visiting and walking this trail is calming, and you’ll leave feeling refreshed.

Banff is a hotspot for tourists and locals alike.  Once you visit and see everything it has to offer, you won’t want to leave ever again!

Let’s End Real Estate Fraud: Revise Presidential Decree 957 Section 5 in the Philippines

When we got married last 2012, we promised ourselves that we will buy our first home before our 5th Wedding anniversary so we can finally have a child. Sadly, our dream of moving to a new house this year will no longer come to reality because we found out that our Developer only secured a license to sell last January 2016…months after we started paying our house equity.

A lot of people sent us an emails telling us how sorry they are for what happened. Some sent us well wishes, offered legal help and others shared similar horrible stories. There was even one person who actually lost millions from a Developer. Here’s our story: http://www.migsandalaine.com/index.php/2016/01/31/our-response-to-harvard-multiland-realty-corporations-demand-letter/#comment-1310.

It’s a nightmare and we wouldn’t want this to happen to anyone. One of your family members, relatives or friends may become a victim of a Real Estate fraud. Help us protect future home buyers by signing the online petition that we started. Our goal is for our lawmakers to hear our call in amending The Presidential Decree 957.

The Presidential Decree 957 was supposed to protect the consumer from fraudulent activities by land developers. But wait, there is something wrong with this law.

P.D 957 section 5Such owner or dealer to whom has been
issued a registration certificate shall not, however, be authorized to sell any
subdivision lot or condominium unit in the registered project unless he shall have
first obtained a license to sell the project within two weeks from the registration of
such project. ‘

If a developer/owner has been proven to be selling units without these proper documents, they will be subject for penalties and the license will be revoked.

However, it does not say anywhere in PD 957 that the “Contract to Sell” will also be null and void, therefore the developer can keep everything(money) that the poor buyer paid even if he demands for a refund.

Now the poor victim is left with a law that only protects the fraudster.

If we can all come together and convince those who are in power to revise this Presidential Decree, it will definitely help hundreds of victims and will also help prevent future fraud activities.
