What we're about
Despite rising home values in the GTA, many homeowners will retire in debt and outlive their money.
The surprising fact is, even with good incomes and growing home equity, countless homeowners are only a few paycheques away from difficulty. Many have consumer debt and a questionable safety net, and cannot afford to invest and grow their wealth the way they should or want to. Some even use their home equity to cover expenses, further adding to their debt load.
The truth is, most Canadians are falling behind during their most productive income years, trying to juggle having a great life today and ensuring they have enough money for a great life tomorrow. The problem is, some homeowners don’t even know they are falling behind, until it’s too late.
Is it possible to accelerate wealth-building, even with all of life’s expenses vying for your hard-earned dollars? YES! However, the way most people try to pay down their debt, save for emergencies and build wealth is slow and outdated, which is why over 60% of Canadians are retiring in debt today.
The challenge is that homeowners don’t know where to get the right information or the proper guidance. The banks, which offer the majority of mortgage and debt products, are not interested in building your wealth, they are interested in building their wealth. So how you learn to get ahead?
