This will be a little bit different than our typical Investor Focussed Meetup. Definitely, we will be bringing our Investor Realtor lens and deep insights, but we will be focussing on a different pain point... In fact, we touch on some of this in the article that HGTV.ca wrote about Volition entitled: "Expert Tips That Will Help You Become a Homeowner Before 40". But in this Meetup, we are going to go much much deeper into actionable strategies & tactics that you can employ... and more importantly, HOW to do it. Far too often, we hear that aspiring home owners feel that they can't afford to buy a home in Toronto, or North York, or Richmond Hill, or Markham, or Sauga, or wherever they wish they could live. The odds are simply stacked against them – even if they have enough for a downpayment, they can't afford the monthly carrying costs! Instead, they move out to Hamilton, Windsor, St. Catherines, purely because of affordability. We are venturing out to change mindsets. Definitely, GTA is more expensive than outside GTA – there is no question – and yes, not everyone can realistically afford a home in the GTA. That said, we will offer a different perspective on how to "afford" a home in the GTA, and offer practical solutions and strategies on how to "make GTA work". Sure, it's not easy. Sure, it might take a bit more work. Sure, it still won't mean that you'll find your "dream home" for less than $1M (or $1.X M, actually!). But for those who are resourceful, purposeful, and willing to do what it takes, Volition's Advisory & Realty services may be able to help turn that dream of home ownership in the GTA into reality.
