It’s important to me that you reside in a home that nurtures your healthy family life and relationships, and whether that means down-sizing or expanding, I’d be honoured to have the opportunity to be your guide on this journey of discovery! I have felt the stress that being "house-poor" puts on a family, so I have no interest in trying to "upsell" anyone beyond their means. Just because a lender is willing to mortgage your home for a set amount doesn't mean it would benefit you to purchase a home that costs that much. What if you were to buy smaller than you'd qualify for, so that you can LIVE LARGER, creating affordable memories with your loved ones?
With mortgage rates beginning to rise from their 30-year low , now may be the best time to be able to afford the home you’ve been hoping for! Click on the button below to begin your home search!

This mortgage calculator may give you an idea what range of home price you can afford. It's still beneficial to meet with a mortgage broker to pre-qualify, particularly with the changes Canada implimented to mortgage laws recently.
