First Time Home Buyer Habits Revealed Thru Latest CMHC Survey

First Time Home Buyer Habits Revealed Thru Latest CMHC Survey

In a recent survey by CMHC (Canada Mortgage Housing Corporation) it revealed a number of interesting buying habits of first time home buyers; they include:

1. Over 50% use a mortgage broker for advise and set up of financing.
2. Over two third's use social media an online tools to help make their decision. 
3. They have some fears and need help in navigating thru all the choices on the market.
4. They're satisfied with the advise and help they receive 80% of the time.

I specialize in helping 1st time home buyers as I really love educating them on all their choices; what to look out for, good and bad. I also love working with them because I see myself in them. I remember purchasing my first place and, although, a very exciting time it can also be a very stressful one. I'm here to help first time home buyers to get the financing they need but also to make the process as stress free as possible.
