His articles on personal finance have been featured in multiple publications such as the Toronto Star, Globe and Mail, MoneySense, and Financial Post. He has made regular appearances on several national television and radio shows including the CBC News Network, Global Morning Show, and Bell Media’s Bell Local Super Savers Show where he discusses topics related to personal finance, pensions and retirement planning, and mortgages and real estate.
Sean joins me today to share how he paid off his mortgage in three short years. He shares tips that can help you get and burn your mortgage at an earlier date, the inspiration for writing his book, and why he feels more focus should be put on financial literacy through the school system. He also shares the criteria that mortgage lenders are looking for and how you can prepare your finances to meet those standards as well as why it is vital to get pre-approved and be aware of the closing costs of homeownership.
“For most Canadians, buying a home is the single biggest financial transaction of their lifetime.” - Sean Cooper
