From the presenter
Many Canadians want to own their own home at some point in their life. Understanding the financial decisions that come along with homeownership early will help prepare you for the long-term commitment of purchasing your first home. Join us our Homeowners Basics workshop to learn some valuable home buying tips.
In the session, you will learn how to:
- Assess your awareness of all the financial costs and considerations in buying a home;
- Understand what lenders are looking for when you apply for a mortgage;
- Consider different financing and down payment options; and
- Identify the costs of renting a home versus the costs of owning a home.
This session allows you to try homeownership on for size.
The workshop is 90 minutes and we take a “grab and go” approach – grab an idea or two and go try it. All participants will walk away with ideas, resources and the full curriculum upon request.
