The sellers told me their house was near the water: It was in the basement."

New book arms first-time home buyers with information.--  Wednesday, November 12, 2003 Real Estate Weekly.

This book is still providing first time home buyers with the information they need today--  10 years later!



The old adage that buying a home is the most important investment you'll make during your lifetime still rings true today.  And for many Canadians, the time to buy a home has never been better.


The Complete Home Buyer's Guide for Canadians, published by Self-Counsel Press and written by Vancouver based realtor Geraldine Santiago, will make it easier for home buyers-especially first-time home house hunters to make this critical investment.


Recent media headlines have made many pronounsements about the booming housing market and its attractiveness for first-time home buyers: "Housing Most Affordable since 2001 with Cheap Mortgages," "Investment In HOmes Looking Better," "Low Interest Rates Propel House Construction," "Gen-Y- Next Big Wave of Home Buyers."  Not surprisingly more and more Canadians are ready to buy their first home, or purchase their next house or condominium.  


Author Santiago says, "This is a great time for people to buy their first home. Relatively low interest rates have kept the costs of home ownership at near historic lows."


But for the first-time home buyer, the process can be intimidating and worrisome.


The Complete Home buyer's Guide for Canadians is written by an experienced real estate agent who specializines in working with first-time home buyers. The book is written in a step=by-step manner, guiding the home buyer from obtaining financing to the final paperwork.  It includes information on:


The buying process

Arranging for financing

Homeowner grants

Tax exemptions

The inspection

The final paperwork
