First-Time Hombuyers


DREAMING OF HOME: First-time homebuyers shouldn't worry

Talk about mixed messages. There's concern that the new mortgage rules might push first-time homebuyers out of the market. But mortgages are still a pretty amazing bargain – historically speaking. In fact, some are calling it the great Canadian mortgage sale. So what's a first-time homebuyer to do? Is buying a home right now a reckless risk... or a great, time-limited opportunity?

Home ownership can make great financial sense. Over the long term, residential real estate has been a very strong asset – showing excellent appreciation. Renters who add up what they've shelled out during their renting years are often shocked to see how much mortgage help they've given their landlord. Most would prefer to have that money build their own home equity. 

If you're dreaming of a home of your own, then there's good news. Getting into today's housing marketing isn't out of the question if you do some good common-sense planning.

Over the next few weeks we'll offer some tips for first-time homebuyers – to ensure that you get off on the right foot in your home buying journey!
