Find out everything you can on the subject of mortgages and home-buying. For example, you should know that having a mortgage doesn’t always cost less than renting because a home owner must take into account both recurring and one-time expenses, such as municipal and school taxes, maintenance costs, property transfer duties, and legal costs.

DOWN PAYMENT In the past it was possible to borrow for a down payment, with a credit card, for example. This is no longer possible. That means you need to have accumulated some savings before getting into this type of acquisition. If you have an RRSP, it is possible to use that for your down payment through the federal government’s Home Buyers’ Plan (HBP).

If you have done your homework and decided to become a home owner, the next step is to consult a representative at your financial institution. Once you are clear about your assets and liabilities, you
