Home Capital confident of housing market

Amid uneven weather patterns and a decrease in home sales across the country, Canada’s largest non-traditional mortgage lender posted solid gains in its first quarter earnings.

Toronto-based Home Capital Group Inc., which lends money to customers who might not qualify for a bank loan, said that home buyers who had put their decision to buy on hold in the second half of last year seem to be re-entering the market now -- many of them are first-time buyers.
