    Wealthing Wednesday - Buying Your First Home

    Webinar

    Date: Wednesday, January 25
    Time: 12:30 - 2:30 pm
    Location: Online via Zoom

    Home ownership is a significant investment and can signal the beginning of a new stage of life for many Canadians. Join us to look at the pros and cons of home ownership, the steps of the home buying process, and some of the government programs available to help along the way. It’s never too early to start thinking about whether buying a house is right for you.

    The goal of “Buying Your First Home” is to help you understand the home buying process, and whether it’s the right move for you. You will learn whether buying or renting is a better fit for your lifestyle and needs; how to prepare for and navigate the home buying process, including ways to determine what you can afford and how much you need for a down payment; and the government programs and other service providers like real estate agents and mortgage brokers who may also play an important role. 2/3 Canadians own their own home, but it isn’t for everyone. If home ownership is part of your future, start planning now—it may be the most significant investment of your life.

    Moving to a new country and starting your life there can be a stressful experience. Thankfully, you don’t have to go through it alone.
