How does Generation Z perceive home ownership?

With real estate continuing to be a hot topic, what do near-future homebuyers in Canada’s hottest markets have to say? A recent RE/MAX survey conducted by Leger found that nearly 51 per cent of Generation Z (age 18-24) in the Greater Vancouver Area would like to own a home in the next few years, while those in Toronto are more inclined to continue to rent or live with their parents.

Key Findings:

Home-Buying Goals? 5 New Year’s Resolutions to Keep

If home buying is on your to-do list next year, there are some tasks to tackle before you hit the streets. Admittedly, many of these New Year’s Resolutions relate to finances, and rightly so. A home is likely the biggest investment you’ll make in your lifetime, so here are five New Year’s Resolutions that you’ll definitely want to keep this year.

It’s important to start thinking about how you will come up with the money – whether it’s...

Yes, I’ll admit people aren’t exactly swarming to a property during winter. However, people need to move when they need to move, no matter the time of the year. So, those...

Why You Should Buy a Cabin or Cottage in the Fall

Sure, property hunting in the fall foliage with a pumpkin-spiced latte in hand sounds heavenly, but there are some hard-and-fast facts to support this strategy, too.

Offseason Options

If you wait until fall to start looking for your dream cabin or cottage, you’re more likely to find it. Families who have been thinking about selling for a while have enjoyed “one last summer” at the cottage before putting it on the market, so chances are there are more options for a buyer at the end of the season. When it comes to cottage hunting, sometimes the early birds do not catch the worm.

Cost Cutters

End-of-season sellers are likely...
