Happiness starts at home

A lot of people dream of owning their own home. At BCV, we can help you make that dream come true. But first, you need to decide exactly what kind of property you want: a house in the suburbs, a city apartment, a country getaway? With a balcony, a garden? Do you want to buy an existing home, build your own, or invest in a fixer-upper?

Build, sell or renovate?

Build a new home

Building a home yourself lets you personalize it according to your tastes and lifestyle – meaning you can really get what you want. But plan on spending a lot of time on it, since you'll have countless decisions to make. And you'll want to oversee the construction work to make sure that budgets and deadlines are met.


If you decide to renovate your current home or a different one, you can make it more comfortable and energy-efficient. That will increase the value of the property and save you money over the long-term. Before starting any renovation work, you should assess the condition of your property and draft an overall plan for the renovation project.

Sell or transfer ownership of your home

You may be considering selling your home or passing it on to a loved one. That can be an emotional decision to make, especially if you've accumulated happy memories there over the years. Count on our advisors to guide you through every step of the process.
