My boyfriend and I are thinking about buying our first house. We’re both, for lack of a better word, “artsy” types I suppose–what I’m trying to say is that we know nothing about real estate or mortgages and that we’re terrible with money and saving. I’m feeling a lot more confident about the whole process though, after just speaking to a mortgage agent at the I searched Toronto mortgage brokers on Google and phoned a few sites but they were the only one who took the time to answer my EXTENSIVE questions about mortgages. I know that we’re making the right decision in looking for a place to own rather than rent, and that we’ll be able to afford it without being enslaved to the mortgage the rest of our lives. Nina Singh
