Event Description

Do you have the dream of buying a farm? If so, the earlier you begin to
research and plan for it, the better! How should you begin your

towards first time buyers.
Topics to be covered will include:

  • Setting priorities on what to look for in a farm, and where to look
  • Financing: the process of getting approved for a mortgage, the role of a mortgage broker and the difference between a residential and agricultural mortgage
  • The process of making an offer and learning the lingo (ex: signbacks, amendments, chattels)
  • Who you need on your team (ex: mortgage broker, real estate agent, lawyer, home inspector)

This workshop will help demystify the process of purchasing a farm, and help you decide if this is the right choice for you.
