Buying your first home is an exciting prospect but one that can also be extremely daunting. What’s the best vehicle to use when saving for that all-important downpayment? How do I differentiate between all the options and acronyms like FHSA, TFSA or HBP—let alone understand which is most suitable for my situation?
To help you make sense of the various options designed to give first-time homebuyers tax breaks, we are holding a special webinar featuring Aviso Wealth’s resident tax expert, Doug Carroll. Doug will break down each option to paint a clear picture of their pros and cons, so you can make an informed decision on how best to save for your first home.
Current homeowners contemplating a move or renovations—particularly for the purpose of accommodating a disability or someone age 65+—will also be interested in attending this webinar as Doug explores tax breaks specifically related to moving and renovations.
Following the webinar, you’ll walk away with a greater understanding of the many options available to you, allowing you to choose the best path forward towards acquiring the keys to your first home.
