What is the average real estate commission in Ontario? #average #cost


What is the average real estate commission in Ontario?

Pretty much everybody knows the answer to this question.

  • Your friend who just sold their house knows.
  • Your favourite news site knows.
  • Your uncle the contractor knows.
  • There are 37,000 agents in Toronto and they know, as do the 58,000 agents in Ontario.

Everybody knows the answer.

The answer is 5%. Wait, no, it’s 4%. Well, around here we pay about 6%. Actually, it’s 3.5%. No, no, for sure it’s just over 4%.

Everybody knows the answer.

Unfortunately, everybody has a different answer.

So what’s the right answer? Who do you trust when you have all these conflicting answers?

Who actually knows the answer?

I am pleased to say that I know the answer.

As of today, February 4, 2014, the average real estate commission in Ontario is shoot, I knew this. It s uh damn. Time to tell the truth I guess. I don t actually know.

I can see you shaking your head. Some real estate agent you are Jeff, if you don’t even know the average real estate commission in Ontario. Isn’t that your pay? Wouldn’t that be of interest to you?

I understand the frustration, I really do. If it helps, I can tell you the average real estate commission for my selling clients in 2013. It was 5%. Every single one of them paid a commission of 2.5% to me as the listing agent and 2.5% as commission to the purchasing agent.

That’s not a guess, or an estimate, or somehow based on anecdotal evidence. It’s a fact. I know it for sure.

When it comes to the average for Ontario though, I don’t know for sure. I know you expected an answer so I will give you an answer.

My answer is somewhere between 4% to 5%. Is that a fact? Absolutely not.

I base my answer on my own experiences, my perception of what impact discount listings have had on the market (limited, by the way) and my discussions with hundreds of agents about commission.

My answer is informed by my work as a full time Realtor, but make no mistake, it’s not the answer.

Why don’t I know the answer? Well, I could blame it on government rules, the economy, the great ice storm of 2013, but in truth, I don’t know the answer because nobody does.

In order to give us the answer, we need to know how much the listing agent got paid and how much the buying agent got paid and we need to know it for every transaction in Ontario.

It’s actually easy enough to see what buying agents get paid. Every listing on MLS has a mandatory field that the listing agent fills in with the commission the seller is willing to pay.

While there are variations depending on what time period you are looking at, what type of home or what area, you can ask for the average buying agent commission and get the answer. Give a good agent a little bit of time to look into it and he or she could absolutely tell you fun facts like:

  • There were 191 detached homes sold in Brampton in December of 2013. 172 of these 191 sales offered 2.5% plus HST. So about 90% offered 2.5% plus HST. Nine of the houses offered more than 2.5% and the other nine offered less than 2.5%.
  • There were 68 duplexes sold in Toronto in all of 2013. 59 of these 68 sales offered 2.5% plus HST. So about 87% offered 2.5% plus HST. Two of the duplexes offered more than 2.5% and the other seven offered less than 2.5%.

This data for the purchasing agent’s commission is available and a good agent can tell you exactly what is going on here so you can make an informed decision.

It is the other half of the data we need, on the listing side, that poses the problem.

Unlike the commission paid to the buying agent, the commission paid to the listing agent isn’t a field that is required to be filled out on MLS. It doesn’t even exist as a field, actually. This information is known to only three parties.

They decide how much of a commission they are willing to pay their agent to list their home. Every real estate transaction that uses a real estate agent signs a listing agreement, and this listing agreement says it in black and white.

2. The Listing Agent knows.

He or she is the one who does a listing presentation for the Seller. He or she explains why they should be hired, what they would do for the Seller, and how much of a commission they charge. When the Seller signs that listing agreement, that agent knows exactly how much they will be paid when they sell the house.

3. The Listing Real Estate Brokerage knows.

The first field that is filled in on the listing agreement is the brokerage for which the listing agent works. Brokerages are responsible for ensuring that all transactions, funds and paperwork are handled in accordance with the Real Estate and Business Brokers Act, as well as any other laws, rules and regulations. They receive and then remit funds to the listing agent after any splits on commissions are applied.

These three parties (the Seller, the Listing Agent and the Listing Brokerage) are the only ones who know how much the listing agent is paid in commission.

Individual sellers are obviously not getting together to share that data anytime soon and neither are individual agents. Listing brokerages could in theory ask all their franchises to provide that data in order to aggregate it and find the average, but to my knowledge, none of them do.

Even if they did, it would only show what sellers pay who hire Keller Williams Realty agents, or Re/Max or Royal LePage, etc. I happen to think Keller Williams’ agents are the best agents in business, so I wouldn’t be surprised if sellers paid more for that expertise and skill.

This leaves us pretty close to where we started. Namely, that there is no definitive answer to the question of what the average real estate commission is in Ontario.

This is a real shame, as it’s an important question. If you are planning on selling your home, interviewing agents and trying to make a choice between them, you need to know what’s normal to pay for their help. No one likes the thought of being taken advantage of and we all want to compare our cost against others to make sure that isn’t happening.

Given the difficulty in comparing realtor fees, I suggest you keep two things in mind that will make the decision process easier.

Firstly. when you hire a realtor to sell your home, remember you aren’t buying a product. You’re hiring a service.

We all know that products can reasonably be expected to be similar. Not identical, but pretty damn close. If you buy a pair of scissors, you know it will cut paper.

Services, on the other hand, can vary wildly. If you need your house painted and you hire a professional painter, the service they provide is hopefully tidy, thorough and high quality. If you hire your friends with the promise of pizza and beer afterwards, your house will still be painted, but probably more of it than you wanted.

Compare the service each realtor is offering against what commission they are charging and you will find it far easier to make your decision. A good agent does so much more than fill out a form on MLS and tell you where to sign an offer. Ask a good agent what they do for you and then sit back and get comfy, because they will be talking for a while.

After you interview agents, make your decision based on what is most important to you, not simply on the commission rate they charge.

Secondly. you now know that there is no such thing as the average real estate commission in Ontario, and this is powerful information.

No one can second guess your choice of a realtor and the commission charged with comments about how the average is “actually much lower than what you paid.” They don’t know that. They can’t. They are misquoting, mistaken or flat out making it up.

Knowing this makes it easier to focus less on what other people are paying or have paid and instead on finding the realtor that is the right fit for you and your needs.

If you are considering selling your home, I hope this helped shed some light onto the murky world of real estate commissions. If you know someone who is considering selling their home, please pass on this article to them.

As always, if you or anyone you know are considering buying, selling or investing in real estate, please get in touch so we can discuss how I can help. I would love to be responsible for what comes next.

Be Sociable, Share!

Average income of a lawyer #average #income #of #a #lawyer


Attorney / Lawyer Salary

Job Description for Attorney / Lawyer

Attorneys apply the law to specific situations and advise their clients on a course of action based on legal rights and responsibilities. Some attorneys work in the business world, providing counsel to corporate clients on business transactions. Other attorneys work with persons in the legal system, advocating on their behalf and representing them in court actions.

Attorneys specialize in an area of law, such as contracts, criminal cases, or patent litigation. Most lawyers work in private practice, either self-employed or with a group of attorneys hired by clients for specific matters. Some lawyers work as in-house counsel for a corporation or government entity.

Since much of the legal system is time-sensitive, most attorneys must work long hours. Most attorneys work in an office environment, law library, or a courtroom setting.

Attorneys must complete many years of education; after attaining an undergraduate degree, they must complete a program, typically three years long, at a law school to obtain the juris doctorate degree (J.D.). To practice as an attorney, one must pass a lengthy, difficult examination that varies state by state. Attorneys must have excellent analytic ability and be able to interpret laws and legal rulings. They must be skilled at gathering and applying information, as well as be very detail-oriented, able to retain large amounts of information, and accurate in execution of their duties. Attorneys must have excellent communication skills, both verbal and written, and be able to generate persuasive arguments. They also must excel at problem-solving tasks.

Attorney / Lawyer Tasks

  • Advise clients in business transactions, claim liability, advisability of prosecuting or defending lawsuits or legal rights and obligations.

Common Career Paths for Attorney / Lawyer

Attorney / Lawyer in Hillsborough:

Behind the culture bell curve.

Pros: I have an awesome boss who has been a great mentor. We work with real people with real issues, so most days are pretty active. I feel that I m learning a lot about how basic elements of how the world works.

Cons: Really only the formality of the culture: the suits, the impossible expectations (of clients) of perfection from a human system, etc. I miss feeling like a regular human being in jeans and a t-shirt on the sidewalk.

Attorney / Lawyer in Crown Point:

Pros: Challenge, Diversity of Responsibilities and Work Performed/Clients Represented, Trials, Mediation, Direct Interaction and Decision Making with Clients, Collaborative Team Environment.

Stress and lower pay than expected.

Pros: Complex, but much easier once you get into the swing of everything. The people are personable and the wins feel great.

Cons: The losses feel terrible. Even in a field where, by definition, one side loses every time, there is an extreme stress to NEVER lose. Three wins can t get you to sleep if you have one loss. Combine that with the fact that significant vacation and great pay are pipe dreams in the current economy.

Attorney / Lawyer in Salt Lake City:

Being A Lawyer Can Be As Great As You Decide To Make It.

Pros: You can be as good as you are willing to be. If you really delve in and prepare your case well, surprisingly, you will be ahead of most other lawyers.

How Much Does Life Insurance Cost? Get Average Price #what #is


Life Insurance Cost

The first two questions most people ask when they look into life insurance coverage are very often: “How much will it cost?” and “How much do I need?” Life insurance costs can be a challenge to calculate because there are several types of life insurance, including whole life, universal life and term life insurance. The cost of life insurance is unique to each individual and depends on the type of policy you choose, the amount of coverage you want, and factors such as your age and overall health.

Comparing online life insurance rates can be a good way to get an idea of what you might pay in premiums. But to get a customized plan that fully meets your needs and budget, it is a good idea to work directly with an agent. For detailed answers and a review of your situation, contact an independent agent in the Trusted Choice ® network who specializes in life insurance. An local member agent in your area can help you evaluate your options and provide a customized quote.

Factors That Affect Your Life Insurance Costs

  • Age: Overall, life insurance rates increase as you age.
  • Health profile: Do you have any chronic conditions? Do you smoke?
  • Gender: Women live longer, statistically, and typically pay lower life insurance costs.
  • Occupation: Receptionist? Machine operator? Sky diving instructor? Yes, it matters.
  • Exams: “No exam” life insurance quotes are available, but are typically more expensive.

To look at some average life insurance rates, we will review several scenarios. Why? Because the average cost of life insurance for a 30 year old male who smokes is very different from the average cost for a 30 year old female with a clean bill of health. To illustrate the range of costs associated with life insurance, the following section will give some hypothetical scenarios for you to think about before you buy a plan.

The Average Cost of Whole Life Insurance

The following average costs were calculated using the following assumptions:

  1. The individuals are a healthy weight and do not live a hazardous lifestyle.
  2. They want $500,000 worth of life insurance.
  3. They want monthly “level pay” (same payments for the duration of the policy).

The average costs will differ when any of the variables change. For example, a 35 year old female nonsmoker would pay an average of $731.57 if she wanted 1,000,000 worth of whole life insurance or about $188.36 for $250,000 worth of whole life insurance.

The Average Cost of Term Life Insurance

The following average costs were calculated using these assumptions:

  1. The individuals are a healthy weight and do not live a hazardous lifestyle.
  2. They want $500,000 worth of life insurance.
  3. They want to pay monthly for a 20-year term policy.

Again, the average costs will differ when any of these variables change. For example, a 35 year-old female nonsmoker would pay an average of $61 per month for $1,000,000 worth of life insurance with a 20-year term, and $23.90 per month for $250,000 worth of life insurance with a 20-year term.

Does Life Insurance Cost More in Certain Regions of the U.S.?

There can be some differences in your life insurance costs, depending upon your state and region. Life insurance companies use “mortality tables” to help predict the benefits they are likely to pay in a given year. Why? Because the amount they collect in premiums must be less than what they pay out in benefits, and these actuarial tables ensure that they will not end up in a deficit.

Some factors that may be taken into account to calculate your life insurance costs in your region include:

  • Whether there is a high rate of obesity in your state or region
  • If the area experiences a high rate of deadly natural disasters, such as earthquakes
  • If the region is prone to certain diseases, such as black lung disease typical in miners
  • If the state or region has a high mortality rate due to crime
  • How many policies have been written in that area

Even with these factors taken into consideration, rates do not typically vary significantly from region to region. For example, if you live in an area prone to earthquakes and high crime, your life insurance rates will be affected more by your age and personal health profile than where you choose to live.

How to Lower Your Life Insurance Costs

Because health and lifestyle play a key role in determining your life insurance rates, the key things you can do to lower your payments have to do with improving your health and reducing your risk of chronic conditions like diabetes or cancer. Being a non-smoker is perhaps the most critical choice you can make to reduce your life insurance rates, but there are many more things you can do as well.

  • Maintain a healthy weight to reduce the risk of obesity and related chronic conditions.
    • Get a body mass index (BMI) check done
    • If you have a high BMI, work with a health professional to lose excess weight
  • Maintain your heart health to reduce the risk of hypertension, heart attack and stroke.
    • Get an annual physical
    • Regularly check your blood pressure, cholesterol, and triglyceride levels
    • Work with a health professional to improve your numbers, if needed
    • Reduce stress, improve your diet and increase exercise
  • Manage your blood sugar to reduce the risk of diabetes.
    • Request a blood sugar test
    • Obtain a diet and exercise plan to help manage blood sugar levels

In addition to assessing your overall health, most life insurance companies will also review your risk of death from a high risk sport or work related accident. For this reason, your career choices and the activities you choose to do for fun can also impact your life insurance rates. If you work at a desk job, versus a career as a skydiving instructor, under-water welder or a rodeo clown, you will find that more insurance companies will be willing to insure you at a more affordable rate.

To get more information on life insurance rates, find an independent agent in the Trusted Choice network today. An agent right in your area can help you evaluate your life insurance options and costs based on your unique circumstances.

How Much Is the Average Monthly Cost of Car Insurance for


How Much Is the Average Monthly Cost of Car Insurance for a 17-Year-Old?

Written by James Hirby and Fact Checked by The Law Dictionary Staff

Like airlines and rental car companies, car insurance companies are prone to changing the cost and terms of their services without warning. This is understandable: Car insurance policies are subject to dozens of disparate factors that combine to create a unique profile for each covered driver. In the eyes of American auto insurers, very few drivers are identical. Even those drivers who are virtually indistinguishable may be asked to pay different rates on their car insurance policies based on small or esoteric differences in their driver profiles. For instance, two demographically-identical drivers might pay different rates on the same policy thanks to one driver s long relationship with the policy s issuer. As a new customer, the second driver might not qualify for a loyalty discount or another similar promotion.

Regardless of where he or she secures his or her auto insurance policy. a 17-year-old driver must be prepared to pay above-average monthly premiums. This is due to several interrelated factors. First, 17-year-old drivers tend to be reckless and impulsive. Teenage drivers are involved in serious car accidents with far greater frequency than their older counterparts. Once a driver turns 25, his or her chances of being involved in such an accident begin to drop precipitously.

For drivers who remain in high school, the accident rate is frighteningly high. Although the ongoing imposition of graduated-licensing programs appears to be cutting down on the incidence of dangerous late-night and impairment-related crashes among teenage drivers, the rate is still far too high. Mounting scientific evidence suggests that teenage drivers are simply hard-wired for recklessness.

In addition to their propensity for recklessness, teenage drivers are clearly less experienced than their older counterparts. Situations that would not prove particularly challenging for regular drivers might provide injurious or even fatal for teenage drivers. For instance, 17-year-olds may be unfamiliar with winter-driving protocols or fail to adhere to local restrictions against right turns at red lights.

With these restrictions in mind, 17-year-old drivers who wish to purchase insurance may be able to cut down on their monthly premiums in several ways. For starters, most insurance companies offer safe driver discounts for individuals who remain accident-free for multiple years. Teenagers who avoid accidents can take advantage of these discounts. In addition, good student discounts might save academically-inclined teens as much as 25 percent per month. Finally, teenagers who remain listed on their parents policies without purchasing their own coverages might stand to save as much as $100 per month.

If you visit the III s Insurance Fact Book. you will have the option to purchase the guide, which includes a number of figures and facts, including the average premiums for car insurance.

If you are debating between two or three car insurance companies, you may want to just call each of them and ask what their average premium is on a yearly basis.

You can also talk with your family members and friends and ask what they pay for their insurance premiums in order to get an average that way.

Factors That Play a Part in Auto Insurance Premiums

There are actually several factors that insurance companies consider when evaluating your rates.

The average is the price insurance companies base their suggested price on.

They consider the average person in your situation and the risks associated with his/her driving. You will have to pay a premium partially calculated on the state average and regional average.

You will pay a premium partially calculated on your age group average.

Other factors that will be compared to the state average include gender and marital status. Based on the statewide performance of your neighbors, you may have to pay a slightly higher cost on your car insurance.

Although you are fighting the law of averages to some extent, there are some factors that are controllable.

Fewer traffic violations or traffic accidents will mean a better premium rate. You will also save money my choosing older, larger and safer cars instead of new sports cars.

Compare Quotes From Top Companies and Save

Circumstances You Can Control

Pursuing a higher education can save on your premiums as, statistically, educated drivers take fewer risks on the road.

Similarly, people with good credit score statistically drive safer than people who have poor credit scores.

The insurance companies figure that you, as an educated or financially cautious individual, will drive safely like all the others.

Your occupation and the driving distance to your job are two important, controllable factors.

The insurance company considers the total number of miles driven each year.

If you are hoping to decrease your insurance premiums, you could start taking the bus or carpooling to work, or stop frequently driving your work vehicle.

Battling the Average

Though you contend with the average premium rate for your state and city, there are measures you can take to pay a below average rate.

You can look into multiple car or multiple-policy discounts, or you can drop comprehensive or collision damage and simply pay for liability insurance.

Remember, the averages compiled for each state are based on full coverage contracts that includeliability, comprehensive and collision.

If you take definite steps to decrease your personal and the insurance company’s risk, you can enjoy a much greater discount than the average person.

In the meantime, you can search for comparable insurance quotes online and get a rough estimate of what you might be paying for car insurance based on your basic demographics.

Average car insurance rates by age #compare #car #insurance #companies, #average


Average car insurance rates by age

To see average car insurance rates for teens, see the following articles, that feature rates by age, state and gender:

Age is just one factor that car insurance companies assess when deciding how much you pay. Other factors that affect car insurance rates include:

  • where you live
  • what model car you drive
  • marital status
  • your driving record
  • your credit history
  • your annual mileage

Each of these rating factors, among others, along with type of coverage you choose and with what limits, influences the rate you’ll pay for your car insurance policy.

And don’t forget that what car insurance company you choose makes a difference in the car insurance rates you’ll be offered. That’s because insurance companies assess risk differently, and each use their own formulas to calculate the price you pay. So the price for a policy will vary signigicantly among insurance companies.

Whatever age and whether male or female, you can save hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars depending upon the insurer you chose. For this reason, it s a must to compare car insurance companies and find the one that offers the best rates for your particular set of rating factors.

Well it is not you alls fault. The statement about males being more aggressive behind the wheel is completely false. Every female I know have heavy feet, and so does everyone knows this is true. They also almost all of the time let go of the wheel immediately when something goes wrong.

Average price for life insurance per month #average #life #insurance #cost


Average price for life insurance per month?

For a family, the average is anywhere from 50-100 dollars a month, though it varies greatly. It wholly depends on the usage. no body can define a monthly amount . The answer to this question is dependent upon where you live in the country. The utility company sets the price in cents per kilowatt per hour of use. That tariff is based on how the power is produced. Coal fired boiler, hydro electric, nuclear are some of the ways that the power is produced. (MORE)

The question and answer are locked and cannot be edited.

Car insurance costs are affected by several factors, such as driving record, where you live (state regulations as well as neighborhood crime rates), age, and th e car itself (sports cars will cost more to insure), however, the national average is $1,837 per year or $153 monthly. (MORE)

The average number of days per month is exactly 29.6041667 days 😀 EDIT, I can’t imagine how the above number was calculated. Show your work! The actual answer, with the math behind it is: 365.25/12 = 30.4375 If you don’t want to account for leap years: 365/12 = 30.416666667 EDIT, But another thing you didn’t account for was that every 100 years there is no leap year and every 400 years there is so, really there is about 365.242357 days in a year so, 365.242357/12 = 30.4368631 (MORE)

The average heating bill per month is anywhere from 50 dollars to 100 dollars per person. The more people living in the house the less it is per person.

Depends on the price of the car: If the average price of a car was $20k the payment will be around $350.

Starting from the assumption that there are 365.25 days per year (remember those leap years), you get: 365.25 days/year multiplied by 1/12 (1 year is 12 months), further multiplied by 1/7 (1 Sunday every 7 days) the answer is roughly 4.35 Sundays per month (MORE)

Cost of Central Heating – Estimates and Prices Paid #central #heating,


Central Heating Cost

In a central heating system, heat is generated in one location and blown to the rest of the house through ducts. The heat source can be a furnace. a boiler that uses hot water and a coil to warm air or a heat pump (which may be paired with a furnace in colder climates); this heat source is typically located in a basement, garage or utility room.

  • In new house construction or as part of an extensive remodeling project where the walls are already torn open, installing a central heating system with either a gas furnace or a heat pump typically costs $10,000-$20,000 or more, depending on the size of the house, the complexity of the system (such as the number registers that release heat or the number of independent heating zones) and the type of unit. High-efficiency gas furnaces usually cost $500-$1,500 more than a standard model.
  • In a house with existing usable ductwork, replacing a gas furnace with another gas furnace can cost $1,700-$4,000 for basic installation of a standard-efficiency unit or $5,000-$7,000 for a more complex installation in an area with high labor rates; and $2,500-$6,000 for basic installation of a high-efficiency gas furnace or $7,000-$12,000 for a more complex project. If all the ductwork must be replaced or added inside intact walls, it can cost $2,700-$12,000 or more to install gas central heating with a standard-efficiency gas furnace and $3,500-$22,000 or more with a high-efficiency unit.
  • With existing usable ductwork, replacing an oil-fired furnace typically costs $2,000-$5,000 for a basic installation, but it can be $6,000-$10,000 or more for complex installations. If it’s necessary to add or completely replace ductwork, it can cost $3,000-$20,000 or more for a central heating system using an oil-fired furnace.
  • With existing usable ductwork, a replacement heat pump typically costs $2,000-$5,000 for an air-source heat pump for an average-size home in a moderate climate; $2,500-$5,500 for a dual-fuel air-source heat pump that works with a natural gas or propane furnace under a single control system (for colder climates); or $5,000-$10,000 or more for both an electric heat pump and the fossil-fuel furnace). If ductwork must be added or completely replaced, a central heating system using a heat pump can cost $3,000-$20,000 or more.

Related articles: Furnace. Central Heating. Radiant Floor Heating. Electric Baseboard Heater

What should be included:

  • It typically takes a day or two to replace the heat source in an existing central heating system, and a week or more to install a new central heating system, depending on the size and layout of the house and the complexity of the system. A replacement project should include removal and proper disposal of the old unit.

Additional costs:

  • A building/mechanical permit is usually required to replace a furnace. Permit and inspection fees are typically about $50-$300, but can cost more in some locations. Many contractors include getting the proper permits and inspections as part of the installation process, but might bill for these fees separately.
  • Older ductwork might contain asbestos, creating unpredictable additional costs for asbestos removal .


  • It might be possible to get a low-cost loan, rebate or tax credit for installing an energy-efficient central heating system. The database of State Incentives for Renewables & Energy Efficiency [1 ] tracks energy-efficiency incentives from utilities and from state, federal and local government agencies. For example, utility companies in Wisconsin [2 ] pay a $125 “reward” for installing a furnace with a 90% AFUE rating and $275 for a 95% model.
  • Try to schedule work in the spring or fall, when contractors typically have fewer emergency calls for heating or air conditioning work. It can be easier to get the work done and to get the lowest rates.

Shopping for central heating:

  • The Environmental Protection Agency lists tips for hiring a heating and cooling contractor [3 ] .
  • Referrals are available from the North American Technician Excellence certification program [4 ] and the Air Conditioning Contractors of America [5 ] .
  • Request and check references; ask about length and type of experience; and be sure they are properly bonded, insured and licensed [6 ]. Check for complaints with the Better Business Bureau [7 ] .

Our hydro heat system was probably fine for a while more but the 19 year old original installation air conditioner (old type coolant) had developed a leak in part that is inside the air handler. Because the hydro was also 19 years old and had sprung a leak before, we decided to replace both. The price noted is for a 13 seer air and 8 whatever e heat rating thing is and included a completely new system except the ducts, and some electrical work to bring it up to current code (new shut off circuit at the system). A 3 man crew plus 2 electricians spent most of the day on the job.

Efficiency: 95% Furn

Was provided three bids by AB May. The first is for a Trane system combination gas and heatpump. It was for a 95% furnace and a 16 seer 3 ton heatpump. The unit was also a two stage for further efficiency. This included install, humidifier, ionizing air filter which is reusable, cleaning of the existing ductwork for mold etc, programmable thermostat, and a 10 year parts and labor warranty as long as they come out and check the system twice a year costing $150.00 each year. The system would qualify for a $750.00 discount from the electric company, $225.00 discount from the Gas Company, and $500.00 worth of tax incentives. The price was $12,024 after rebates.
The second bid was for an identical system except from their house brand Everest which is a re-badged Goodman system. Still would qualify for the rebates same BTU and Seer rating. This was priced at $8,206 after rebates.
They also provided a bid for the most basic Trane system. This included a 95% furnace still, but only a 13 Seer single stage heat pump. The system only qualified for the $225.00 Gas Company discount. This was priced at $6,125 after the rabate.

Heating contractor had quoted an excellent price on a prior Rheem furnace job and showed very good followup, so I did not quote against him when he installed the new Rheem furnace in the main house. Just want to ce=heck the overall price to make sure that he is not getting all he benefits of the 30% tax credit and not me. It’s a Rheem RGRM 10, took out old furnace and re built sheet metal to plenum to attach to new one. Installed all. No new ducts, Used existing extra flue. Crew of 2 1/2, worked a little more than 1 1/2 days. How does the going dealer cost for a Rheem 100k but 2-stage 95% compare to cost of labor? Very roughly? Are we close to $5K.

Average Insurance Costs For Auto, Home, Renters and Health

Chapters in this page:

When shopping for any type of insurance policy, finding the “average cost” may be the first thing that comes to mind. While such a number may be useful in some respects, especially if you are comparing rates, it is not the most accurate method of gauging an appropriate price.

The average cost of insurance reflects what all consumers actually spend on insurance, meaning those with the cheapest rates are pooled with those with the most expensive premiums, and those who buy minimum coverage are included with those who buy extensive protection.

If you decide to compare the rates you’ve gathered with average costs, it may be more useful to look at the average cost within your state. Comparing your rates with the nationwide average, or with the average price from a different state, could be misleading due to varying risk factors. Insurance rates are determined by looking at several risk factors, which include (but are not limited to) where you live, your age and your claims record. Factors affecting rates for group health insurance policies include the health and ages of members within the group.

Car Insurance: Expenditure by State

According to data from the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), the average cost of car insurance in the U.S. was $795 in 2007. When compared to average costs by state, however, it’s clear that location can make a big difference. For example:

The average car insurance price assumes that all insured vehicles include liability coverage, the minimum auto insurance requirement in most states, but does not reflect the total of liability as well as collision and comprehensive coverage — because not all auto policies include all three coverage types.

The NAIC reports that states with greater premiums tend to be highly urban — with higher wages and price levels — and possess a higher traffic density. Other factors that affect the cost of insurance include: auto insurance laws, labor costs for repairs, car-theft rates and liability coverage requirements.

These are the averages, get your personalized auto rate by clicking here: auto insurance quotes .

Home Insurance: Average Premiums

The cost of a home insurance policy is based on several factors, including the amount of insurance you purchase, the perils covered by your policy, the type of property you insure, and the limits and deductibles you choose as a policyholder.

Homeowners insurance rates, which are influenced by local construction costs, vary widely around the country. Your degree of exposure to natural disasters, such as tornadoes and forest fires, also affect your premium price.

According to the NAIC, the national average for home insurance coverage for a single family home, was $822 in 2007. As with auto insurance, average home insurance prices vary widely from state to state:

The mean insurance rate for home insurance represented the most commonly purchased coverage, the HO-3 policy, which provides coverage for buildings, personal property (contents) and liability.

Looking for a customized rate? Click here: home insurance quotes .

If you rent, you should consider purchasing renters insurance. The average premium price differences are less dramatic in state-to-state comparisons for renters insurance. For instance, average annual premiums for renters insurance in 2007 include:

Group Health Insurance: For Individuals and Families

According to the Kaiser Family Foundation’s Survey of Employer-Sponsored Health Benefits for 1999 to 2009, the average annual cost of health insurance coverage, as part of a group plan, is:

The survey included 3,188 randomly selected, public and private companies having three or more employees. The average cost for family coverage reflected a 5% increase from 2008 to 2009; however, the individual premium price did not indicate a significant jump. Factors such as the the group’s location, industry, and health and ages of the group’s members affect group health insurance premiums.

The Average Income of a Cattle Rancher #average #income #of #a


The Average Income of a Cattle Rancher

Cattle ranchers’ salaries vary by location and other factors.

Related Articles

Many people become cattle ranchers because they grew up in a family of ranchers and may have even inherited a ranch. Others become ranchers after making a high salary in another field. These people have enough money saved to help offset the high initial price of setting up a cattle ranching business. People who become cattle ranchers and rely solely on their new ranching income to offset start-up costs tend to have a tougher beginning, since it takes time to earn a profit. The salary of cattle ranchers can vary widely according to factors such as the size of the business and how many cattle they have.

Rancher Salaries

The income of a cattle rancher depends on whether or not he owns his land. Ranchers who own their land have an average yearly income of about $70,000 to $80,000, although the range can be from around $30,000 to over $100,000. Typically, a rancher who owns his land will see the higher salary further on in his career. Beginning ranchers need to spend on cattle, equipment and marketing. However, many do not own the land they work on but are hired as managers. They may have median salaries of around $50,000, although the earnings can rise if the manager is successful and is hired to manage larger ranches.

Factors That Affect Salaries

Weather, health of the herd and geographic location can affect salaries. In addition, cattle ranchers can receive money from the government in the form of subsidies that lessen costs and risks. Most cattle ranchers work full time.

Earnings by State

The average salary of cattle ranchers, along with farmworkers and other ranch hands, varies according to the state in which they work. The highest paid workers are in Maine, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Maryland, South Carolina, Wyoming, Utah and Nevada. The lowest-paid workers live in Kansas, Oklahoma, North Dakota, Kentucky, West Virginia, Vermont and Tennessee.

Future Outlook

Employment of cattle ranchers is expected to decline just slightly by around 8 percent. Because machinery is expected to become more expensive, cattle ranchers who own their land may need to be well capitalized to stay in business. However, government subsidies and loans will continue to help new ranchers. For example, the USDA Farm Service Agency Direct Operating Loan helps ranchers and farmers obtain money for equipment and supplies. Ranchers who are hired as managers will continue to have opportunities in the future, although they will likely need a college education and real-world experience to compete with other job applicants. Managers who have taken classes in marketing and finance, along with animal and wildlife courses, will likely be most in demand.

Averages do not include frequent-flyer or”zero fares” or a few abnormally high reported fares.
