Statistics show that Canadian women now outnumber men in buying a house or condo. Women see the value in owning property. They are no longer waiting for, or expecting, a Mr. Right to come along before taking one of the key financial steps of their lives. Such is the case with the author of Home Girls:
The Single Woman s Guide to Buying Real Estate in Canada

Brenda Bouw s own experiences in buying and selling real estate, and those of other single women she interviewed for the book as well as insights from real estate professionals are built into this informative and entertaining guide. If you are looking at buying a first property, you ll find out about the pitfalls you need to avoid and the necessary steps you must take to make that purchase a success story. If you already own real estate, you might be interested in renovating your house, buying an investment property or even becoming a landlord. Here are some of the key concepts:

  • How to tell if you re ready to own your own home
  • What to look for in a house

  • How to become a landlord and if you really want to be one

It is a truism that women tend to be more focused, organized and informed when it comes to making major purchases.
