Below you will find a wide variety of resources and information relating to the mortgage process. I am here to help and I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions. Please note that I highly recomment using the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada's Budget Planner. Just because you can be approved for a certain mortgage amount does not mean you should actually buy a property in that price range. Your family's budget should be your deciding factor. Remember that life is a journey meant to be enjoyed and not stressed over to impress other people. You should strive to impress yourself with the wise financial decision you make and the example you set for your children! Before you get to the links below, here are my 3 favorite links! Your Pre-Approval Link, because you never want to start looking for your home without know what you can be approved for. Next, if you live in the Ottawa Area, a great link for Open Houses in the area is the one provided by The Ottawa Real Estate Board. If your not in Ottawa then I highly recommend Realtor.ca
