Helping out the first-time home buyer
The Greater Vancouver Home Builders' Association is aiming to take away some of the stress of buying a home for the first time with their 19th annual Seminar for First-Time Home Buyers, taking place on March 19 at the Bell Performing Arts Centre in Surrey.
"With interest rates still incredibly low and builders offering many new-home product choices, this is a great time for first-time buyers to consider taking that critical first step onto the property ladder," says GVHBA CEO Bob de Wit. "Real estate continues to be a hot topic in Metro Vancouver, so seminar attendance is expected to be as many, or greater than, the 750 people who attended last year's event. This is a one-stop information shop for first-time home buyers, so anyone considering buying a home should come to this free seminar."
Among the speakers at this year's seminar will be senior market analyst at the Canada Mortgage & Housing Corp. Robyn Adamache, Energy Solutions Manager for FortisBC Michael Liu and Dominion Macklem Mortgages President Bill Macklem, among many others.
Pre-registration is required and attendees are asked to bring a food item for the Surrey Food Bank. Call 778-565-4288 or register online at www.gvhba.org.
