Buying a Home in Edmonton as a First-Time Home BuyerStarter homes are usually the first home that a person or family is able to afford to buy with either savings and a mortgage or just a mortgage. These homes are typically 1-2 bedroom homes, are often older homes and are ideal for singles, newlyweds and young families. Starter homes are usually affordable because they are priced at or below the median price on the local market.
