CLICK to view Mobile version of MovingInCanada.com on your smartphone

Owning your own home is a key part of the average family's Canadian Dream. Moving In Canada is designed to help people choose a neighbourhood (starting with the list at left), find a local realtor, home and mover, buy and sell your home, move your household, make the trip, and get settled in. We even have information to help you immigrate and move to Canada

Once you have looked at your community, and reviewed our info about specific neighbourhoods, you can now get down to the "nitty gritty" of home shopping, taking advantage of the professional services of a local realtor, do doing some legwork yourself using "FSBO" (for sale by owner) resources. And once you have found a home, you can plan your move & movers, whether across the street, across town or across Canada.

And see our real estate, mortgage, and relocation News feed, below.

(Posted:12/08/2010)
Canada: Even though the mortgage rates have increased from 3.39% to 3.69 %, they are still at historic lows. Thus, it’s still a buyer’s market. In fact experts suggest that Canada’s mortgage industry is vastly stable and competitive than its American and Australian markets. In the US, there were 54,000 mortgage firms, while only 8000 of them are left today. On a national level the housing affordability improved between 1.4 and 2.5 % points from the second quarter,” adds Ken Faminoff (first name).
