Who am I?

Hey, my name is Sakari Tolppanen and  I’ve been a real-estate investor since 2014. Over the years I’ve learned how the markets work and what are the most important things to consider when buying a home in Finland. However, I know that for many first-time home buyers buying a home can be overwhelming, as it is one of the biggest purchases you will ever make.

For this reason I have built an online course, where I bring together all the most important things you need to know before buying a home.

The online course consists of around 3h of pure value, divided into thirteen videos, and four modules. You can study the content at your own pace and at whatever time suits you best.

Customer experience:

"I've bought an apartment in Scotland before moving here, and this was a very good and informative workshop which helped me understand the differences with buying in Finland. During the workshop I learned many things, including the general process of buying an apartment, getting a loan, making an offer, how housing companies work as well as the rough guide to costs for renovations (and how it's shared between owners).   The workshop was easy to follow and I also really appreciated how Sakari was open to all kinds of questions from us and was able to answer them all very well.  I'd recommend this to first time buyers in Finland, regardless of if you've bought in other countries before, as it explained how things work here and I feel much more confident now about how property ownership works here now."
