Hi, I am a first time home buyer and will be looking for a home at the end of this year. I wanted to know what to do to begin the process and where to start! Please help !! Thanks so much Becky

Hi Becky,

Thank you for your question. It's a great time to be a first time home buyer. With attractive home prices and historically low interest rates, affordability has never been better.

My suggestion as you start down the path to home ownership would be to start with with an BMO 1st Home Essentials Kit. BMO Bank of Montreal is helping clients remove the complexity that comes with making the biggest purchase of their life with a new home-buyer’s ‘kit’ specifically for the first-time buyer.

The BMO First Home Essentials kit was created as a step-by-step guide for entering the real estate market. The kit includes helpful tips, worksheets to calculate various home purchasing scenarios, access to an online planning tool and more than $1,800 in special offers.

When combined with the expertise of your home buying team including your realtor and lawyer, the First Home Essentials guide is a great first step in shopping for your home with confidence.

I would be happy to meet with you to review the BMO 1st Home Essential Kit in more detail. I can always be reached at (705)725-3734 or via e-mail at Trevor1.Reid@bmo.com.

Thank you,
