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.
