Is Homeownership for you?
Homeownership can be a path to security, stability and greater financial wealth.
However, is homeownership the right choice for you?
Before making the decision, consider the advantages and disadvantages of owning your own home.

- Increase in Security and Stability as there is no landlord making decisions for you such as raising your rent or not renewing your lease.
- Freedom to renovate and make changes to your living space
- Advantageous tax treatment through the capital gains exemption
- Potential for additional income through rental income
- Strain on your cash flow
- Extra monthly costs such as property tax, utilities and maintenance
