It seems that once a person reaches their early twenty’s and finds a job, their first goal is to own their own place, and I say good idea. Not everybody however; can afford a single family home or even a townhouse. So I say to that, don’t be discouraged. Look for a condo. I told my son when he was looking for his own place, to start with a condo and work his way up to a house. He listened, and now he owns two condos and a townhouse. Remember, you don’t have to start big. Even a small condo is an investment. So, speak to your bank or lender. Make sure you are pre approved for a mortgage that you feel comfortable with, find a condo that you love, and become a homeowner.
