Purchasing A Home

Conditional or firm offer?

We are strong believers in real estate deal conditions. Now that we are in a more balanced market, and houses are not selling in multiple offer scenarios, as a real estate buyer you have more power to make a thoughtful deal with conditions.

Do I really need title insurance?

Title insurance is not the most exciting thing to spend your money on, but it is an integral part of buying a house and most real estate lawyers (and virtually all mortgage companies) want it as part of every deal. Although title insurance is optional in Ontario, your lender will require it for you to receive your mortgage.
