Welcome to our April newsletter! There was some potential good news for first-time home buyers in the federal budget! The proposed changes include the ability for first-time buyers use more of their RRSP's towards a down payment plus mortgage assistance from the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation. You'll find that article below along with a recent article from HGTV about how you can become a homeowner if you're under 35. If you're looking for something to do this April, the Halifax comedy festival is returning and features some familiar faces. We also have three listings: an oasis on a small private lake, a four bedroom home with ocean views and a master suite that has to be seen plus a charming three bedroom condo, which you'll find below. Our business is based on referrals; if you know someone who is interested in the real estate market or considering making a move, please forward this email to them! Happy Easter!
