We can help you plan and save your way into owning your own home.

Taking the step to buy a home of your own is a very exciting and rewarding experience. A good place to get started is considering your options: condo or house? The neighbourhood? Fixer-upper or new construction? Once you’ve got a feel for the cost implications of these decisions, then you can roughly determine what you’re looking to spend.

The cost of a home may seem overwhelming, and saving for a down payment can be daunting if you are just starting out. But, with the proper planning, budgeting and saving you can be well on your way to owning your own home.

Saving Tips

In addition to your budgeted savings, there are lots of small things you can do that could help you reach your goal sooner:

  • Save your change:
    If you put your spare change aside at the end of every day, it can really add up.
  • Bring your lunch:
    By not spending $10 on lunch every day, you could save almost $1,000 a year.
