Like most different things within the financial sector at the moment though, FinTech firms are quickly chipping at the advantages the old guard will depend on. Given how a lot money we’re coping with relating to the buying and selling of Canadian homes, I feel there is a large incentive to do some of this stuff by yourself and avoid wasting huge bucks.
