How Home Buying Made Simple Works
In this site, you can view a national data base of MLS listings, that are from the Canadian Real Estate Association. You can search this data base to view homes in your current and desired neighbourhoods and see the sale prices as a start point for determining your move budget. Beside each listing is a First Ontario mortgage calculator to work with in terms of affordability and an APR reward calculator that will detail reward values that can be earned on both your home sale and or purchase.
When viewing properties in the MLS data base, you will see a map that features amenities in your new neighbourhood. You can use the MLS data base in the comfort of your home without pressure of being contacted by realtors. We wait for you to take the first step in contacting us, and the first contact should be First Ontario to be prequalified for a mortgage amount. Then we start the process with APR to get you a realtor to meet your needs.
First Ontario members, families and friends using the All-Purpose Realty referral service will receive cash rewards based on the transaction value. The reward is $25 for each $10,000 increment of completed real estate transactions. For example, sell a home for $800,000 and receive $2000. Purchase a home for $900,000 and receive $2250. Cash rewards will be sent to you by APR through First Ontario between 30-45 days of the possession date of the subject property on your sale and/or purchase.
