Many first time buyers aspire to own a home, but fear not being able to manage the mortgage and carrying costs, picking a suitable home and neighbourhood, and are often afraid of paying too much or buying a 'money pit' they can not afford. The decision to purchase a home is a highly personal one.  Individual situations, local market conditions, financing costs, and future expectations must all be evaluated. Cheryl has created a short course designed to coach and educate first time buyers to success in their endeavors of purchasing a home, and provide an opportunity to ask questions and get honest answers in an open, interactive, non-sales environment.


Topics covered will include:

  • Determine what type of home is best for you
  • What you need to know about your credit, finances & mortgage options
  • Find out about 1st time buyer programs and how they work.
  • Learn the key steps in the buying process
  • Legal considerations and closing costs
Whether you are a first time buyer or thinking of purchasing again, get the facts and advice to help you make the right decisions - for you.
