Your spring 2017 guide to sensible home buying

Tools for aspiring or existing home owners || Financial advice for home buyers || House price data centre

The housing market looks different in every Canadian city, but the rules for sensible home buying are the same all over.

Happy home ownership requires attention to detail – an understanding of the market in your community, deciding on a price you can properly afford, finding a mortgage with the best rate and terms and building a realistic understanding of all the costs of managing a house or condo.
