April Message

The cost of home ownership is rising across Canada, with the current average home sale price of $240,000 in Nova Scotia.

Many things influence the sale price, including the market along with the location, size, amenities, age and condition of the home. With these rising costs, it’s more important than ever for home-buyers to have a clear budget in mind when they begin house hunting. In 2018, 43% of Canadians paid more for their first home than they had initially planned to. Sticking to a budget and being prepared for additional upfront costs will help limit surprises for future home owners.

Unexpected expenses will continue to spring up after the sale of your new home closes. From closing costs, to renovations, energy efficient upgrades and emergency funds, we’re here to help. We offer flexible solutions to help meet your needs at every stage of home ownership and beyond.

Just as we strive to support you and your needs as members, our Board of Directors provides strategic oversight and direction to CUA. Please cast your vote in the upcoming Board of Directors Election between now and April 18th. If you have an email on file with us, you should have received an email on Monday, April 8th with your invitation to vote online. Otherwise, you may do so at any of our branch or Corporate Office locations during business hours or one hour prior to the Annual General Meeting. AGM details can be found here.

If you have any questions about home ownership, the upcoming Board of Directors election or any of our products and services, we would be happy to address them. Please contact a member of the CUA team at 902.492.6500 or info@cua.com.

Your CEO,
