Welcome to our final lesson about some of the responsibilities of owning your own home and the benifits you can expect to recieve from home ownership. Thank You for visiting with us.

      The day before or the morning of closing you will do your pre-closing inspection and make arrangements to visit your lawyer to sign the mortgage documents and pay your down payment and closing costs. The lawyer will send the required funds to the sellers lawyer who will send your lawyer a deed from the sellers to you. Your lawyer will then pay the deed transfer tax to the local municipality and record your deed and mortgage at the local land registration office. You now officialy own your own home.Please feel free to email us if you have any questions about our website at  staff@easthants.com

        Now that you own your own home here are some important tips.

1. Your home is your largest single investment and any gain in value is tax free in Canada so it is extremely important that you maintain and keep your home in proper condition. This will over time substantially improve your net worth and over all financial health. Real estate values normally increase every year. Maintaining that value can be one of the smartest things you can do. Appraisers call that pride of ownership and it is the first thing they look for when appraising a home for a lender.

2. If you have an older home you may qualify for many different home improvement programs especially relating to energy. CMHC is Canada's leading housing authority and there is lots of valuable information on their website.
