Upcoming Free Victoria BC Real Estate Seminar: Buying A Home

House for Sale in Sooke

Ah… springtime… when a young person’s thoughts turn to… buying a home, of course! The spring market is here, and many first-time buyers are taking advantage of record low interest rates and making the jump into their own homes.

How much do you need and how can you save for a down payment? What’s the best type of mortgage for you? What homes are available and what sorts of programs are out there to help a first-time buyer?

How will the upcoming mortgage rule changes affect my affordability? Will the HST spoil my dream of home ownership?

All these questions and more will be answered at a fun, free, interactive seminar I’m putting on next month with two other professionals.

A Certified Financial Planner will talk about how to save for that ever-important down payment, and government programs to assist home buyers. Find out the details of how to borrow from your RRSP tax-free to help you buy a house, and other tricks of the trade.

Robert Boyd, Mortgage Expert with Dominion Lending will present on the various types of mortgages that are available, how to apply, and how to get the best rate possible to save you money. Learn about mortgages and rates, amortization and prepayment and take the mystery out of mortgages

Tim Ayres (that’s me!), REALTOR® with Royal LePage Coast Capital Realty will walk you through the home-buying process – how we search for a home together, showings, offers, negotiation and finally, getting the keys to your new home. Find out what to look for, how to ensure you get what you need, and how having an experienced REALTOR® on your side can help.

When: Tuesday, March 30th, 2010, 7PM.

Where: Investors Group Westshore office, 201 – 630 Goldstream [map] – [street view]

The seminar is free, but we have limited space, so please phone me at 250-885-0512, fill in the form below or visit for more information.

  • I would highly recommend any first time home buyers to attend this seminar. More often than not new buyers do not realize how much support is out there for those looking to get into the market.
