Luckily there’s a team of advisors at Aldergrove Credit Union — and a wealth of great advice in the ACU Knowledge Centre —to help you.

3 tips on getting started
Buying a home can be the biggest financial decision you’ll ever make. Here are 3 tips to help you get it right the first time:
- Make a list of your priorities, wants, needs, and deal-breakers. Figuring out the items you aren’t willing to budge on will help you gain a clear understanding of how to start your search.
- Determine your budget. Review your finances in detail to get a good sense of what you can spend. Consider extra expenses like property taxes and maintenance costs.
- Get pre-approved. Pre-qualifying for a mortgage arms you with the knowledge and confidence to shop within your budget.
Now is a great time to start your home ownership journey. Take advantage of Aldergrove Credit Union’s lowest mortgage rates ever and get affordable payments, extra payment options, and an annual cash rebate.
