Hi All, We are new immigrants coming from India as a family of 3. we came to know from 'here' n 'there' that it is possible to buy a home as a newcomer before even having a job and credit history in Canada. For that, we need to put down 35% downpayment. We are planning to put a downpayment of 100K CAD which makes our home buying budget around 290K CAD. With this budget, we are planning to buy an apartment (2-3 Bedroom) in either Halifax, NS or some nearby small town of Vancouver/Toronto/Montreal. Please let us know if the above information is correct and if we are going in the right direction. Additionally, if you have any idea regarding a good location where we can get a 2 bedroom apartment with this budget, please suggest. (All over Canada) Our basic requirements are a good school for our 3.5-year-old son, SAFE neighborhood, the apartment should be having good light n airflow, if we try to resale it after 4-5 years, we should be able to at least get what we invested or above. Don't want to make a loss on that part. Comments, please. Thanks.
