I found this fun little tool today,, it tells you whether your rent or the rent of an apartment you’re considering is above or below average for the area. I like that it works for my neighbourhood in Vancouver, and it’s going to be very useful when I start looking for a new apartment in about 6 months or so.


Student loan calculator

Does anyone know of any good student loan calculator tools online? So far I’ve only been able to find student loan calculators like this which is a step in the right direction but it would be great to find one that makes a nice little chart for you showing how much interest you would save by increasing your payments. I know I’ve seen mortgage calculators like that, so it would be great to see a student loan one.
