Are you looking to negotiate your cash advance or credit card debt? You don’t have to sign up to pay another company to do it for you. A creditor or lender will most often prefer to deal with the person one-on-one rather than discuss the case through a third party. Save some cash and work through your debt yourself.
Social interaction is an important aspect of life. Who we interact with and how we do so can determine everything from our friends to our significant others and even our employment. The most important aspect of social interaction is undoubtedly the first impression. Your first impression determines whether you get a chance to make a second impression or not. This is particularly important in a job interview, as your first impression decides the likelihood of you getting a second interview.

If you struggle every month to pay off your multiple credit bills and want to stop the harassing calls from your credit card companies, you can opt for credit card debt consolidation. Today, in Australia, nearly 11% of the finance applications comprise of consumers who want to consolidate their debts.
What debt consolidation means
Your multiple credit bills will be consolidated into a single new loan with a lower interest rate. In some cases, your total debt amount may also be reduced. So, it will be easier for you to make a single payment every month. A debt consolidation loan has a fixed repayment amount and a loan term. Your total debt can be cleared in a shorter time and thus you will also save money. You have to do negotiation with your creditors for consolidating your debts. You can either approach them yourself or can take help of professionals, who will negotiate on your behalf with your creditors.
Pros and cons of debt consolidation
The main advantages of credit card debt consolidation are:
- Single payment: Instead of multiple bills you have to make single monthly payment to pay off your debt. If you are making payment for multiple bills, payment for one or two bills can be missed. But, with the new loan you will only have to make a single payment, thus, there will be no chance of being a defaulter.
- Lower interest rate: The new consolidated loan will come with a lower interest rate, thus you will save money.
- Reduced debt amount: Your total debt amount may get reduced to 50% to 60%. It will depend how well the negotiation has been done with your creditors.
- Shorter loan term: You will have a shorter loan term to pay off your debt. So, in a shorter period you will be a debt-free man.
- No harassment calls: Once you opt for debt consolidation, your creditors will stop harassing you by making phone calls or paying a visit to your work place. If any creditor continues to do so, you can take legal action against him.
- Mental peace: Debt consolidation will help you to resolve your debts in a shorter time and your monthly payment will also be according to your affordability. So, you will not have any trouble making the monthly payments and can spend the extra money for your family too. Thus, you will have mental peace.
- Tax deduction: If you take a home equity loan, you can get some tax deductions from the interest amount you pay on mortgage.

Here’s my situation, and my question is at the end.
-Decided to upgrade our home size in early 2012, listed our condo on MLS in June 2012 and purchase a new house shortly afterwards
-Received BC Assessment letter stating that my condo was worth $447K in July 2012 (this is used by City of Vancouver to assess property taxes)
-In August 2012, my wife and I moved to our new house, and the condo hadn’t sold yet. Because we have lots of credit and interest rates were low and the real estate market slow, we decided to “ride it out” and not drastically drop our asking price
-This week (May 2013) finally sold the condo for $418K. The main reason we sold under assessed value is because there is a future construction site across the street and many prospective buyers were scared off by this.
My question: Because the assessed value of the property is $447K right around the time that we started attempting to sell the place (and established a new principal residence), can we now claim a $447K-$418K = $29K capital loss for 2013 (to be carried forward to future years)?
Thanks in advance to all the accountants out there!

While it’s more challenging today for some buyers to secure a loan, many others will find that it’s not that difficult at all.
