First Time Buyers

It is essential as a first time home buyer in the real estate market that you work with someone who is experienced with first time buyers. First time buyers will usually have more questions than people who have purchased real estate previously. Buying a home is not a simple process, especially when you are not familiar with it. You may not know what price range of properties you can look at, what mortgage payments you can afford, or how the general home buying process works. As a first time buyer we generally recommend getting to a bank or seeing an independent mortgage specialist as soon as possible to determine what you can afford and what you are comfortable with paying each month. You can then be ‘pre-approved’, which is the first step to getting you into an affordable home and getting you started in the market.

We will provide you with the answers to all your questions, and walk with you through ever step of the process, from setting up viewings, to making the initial offer, and setting up the mortgage financing. Although buying your first home in Penticton can be overwhelming, you can feel at ease, as we will help you every step of the way. We enjoy the process as much as you do, and t’s a very exciting feeling. We still remember buying our first pieces of Penticton real estate, and all the questions we had at the time. Having an agent there to answer all the many questions we had, made the process so much easier. This is the same commitment we promise to make to you as a first time home buyer, and anyone that we work with.

It is a great investment

It is smart to get your foot on the first rung of the property ladder. Chances are you will not be able to start out by buying your dream home, but it is the first step in advancing to that dream and to build some equity to put towards your next home.

Ownership Rates

Two out of three Canadian families own a home-which is one of the highest rates of home ownership in the world.


You don’t have to worry about getting kicked out or having your monthly payments increased. You lock in your monthly payments for several years and your house will generally get more valuable over that time.

Personal Touch

Don’t forget pride and comfort in owning your own home. You can customize it however you want and can do what you want inside your own home!
