Today I’m here to invite you for our next upcoming meetup. We are going to be meeting up on November 17th in Burnaby, BC.
We’re going to be chatting about financial planning. This has always been an interesting topic for us. We’ve got a great guest speaker lined up and we’ll share with you those details if you go to meetup page.
We wanted to chat about financial planning because the whole aspect of investing in real estate, buying a home for you to live in, is part of your financial planning. We wanted to know if in this strategy, would your real estate be something that you can count on as part of your retirement? Are other vehicles, like investments or RRSPs, better options than investing in real estate? How does that really fit into your future plans?
We’ve got an expert guest speaker lined up to join us on November 17. Check up our meetup page for the full details.

A quick Bank of Canada benchmark rate update:
The Bank of Canada benchmark rate did increase to 5.29%. If you’re not sure what that means, check out some of our old blogs, call us at 1-866-924-5244 to see how does a Bank of Canada benchmark rate change affects you. Are you making a down payment less than 20%? Are you making a 5% down payment or 10% down payment? This might really affect how much mortgage you can get. We’ll also tell you how you can get around that.
