Fantastic! It may be your first home, or perhaps your fifth, but no matter how many times you’ve been through the process, one thing remains the same: It’s a big job, involving a great deal of effort, time, and of course, money. But you’re not alone — lots of Canadians are doing it. According to Statistics Canada’s National Household Survey, 69% of Canadian households own their home. Every buyer has unique needs but the questions they ask are very similar:

  • How do I know how much I can afford?
  • Do I need an agent or should I go it alone?
  • What’s the best area to buy in?
  • How do I negotiate the best possible price?
