Purchasing your home is not a simple process, especially when it is something you have never done before. But that is OK. You will soon learn all about the different types of properties, how much they cost, how much you can afford for a mortgage payment, and how the whole home buying process works.

Being a first time home buyer I highly recommend getting pre-approved for a mortgage. Lucky for you Scott Bowland is not only a Realtor but a Mortgage Broker in Penticton as well. With over 17 years of experience Scott will be able to determine how much you can afford and what you are comfortable with as a mortgage payment. After this first step we will work on finding you the kind of property you would like. 

Scott can provide you with the answers to your questions and go through the whole process, from getting a mortgage, viewing suitable homes,  and then putting in an offer on the home you wish to buy. Although purchasing your very first home can be a little stressful, you can be confident that Scott will be available to help you along every step of the way. Having Scott as a Realtor that is able to answer all your questions will make the whole process much easier.  

There are many reasons why you should buy a home, here are the most common:

As I am sure you already know a home is a great investment. Penticton Real estate keeps going up and the rental property pool keeps getting smaller. The sooner you can get in on the market the better off you are going to be. A smart investor always purchases real estate, and even though you might not be able to buy your dream home right away, the first home you purchase will be a stepping stone to building up some equity that you can then put towards a better home in the future.

Canadian Flag


Did you know that Canada has one of the highest rates of home ownership in the world?

Yes its true. Two out of three Canadian families own their own home. 



When you own your own home you don’t have to deal with a landlord anymore. Wonderful! Now you don’t have to worry about getting kicked out, or having your rent jacked up.  Instead of giving your landlord money you are building equity. Giving yourself a shot at a very good future indeed!

Then of course is the pride and comfort in owning your own home. It is all yours so you can style it the way you want. Paint it, renovate it, whatever you like, because it is all yours!

If you are someone that is interested in getting into the Penticton real estate market and buying your first home Scott would be more than happy to work with you and make the process as simple as possible.
