Online course for first time homebuyers
Our Online Course provides you with the best tools for buying a home in Finland. We know that the last thing you want to do when buying a home is to cross your fingers and hope for the best.
There are many things you need to consider and many important questions you need ask. If you don’t, you might end up making a very expensive mistake.
However, the process buying a home in Finland does not need to be a nightmare, nor do you need to use thousands of hours to do your research. I’ve done it for you. And to help you, I have put together a workshop on buying a home in Finland so that I can share my insights with you.
Hey, my name is Sakari Tolppanen and I’ve studied the Finnish housing market for almost a decade 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 this online course based off of the contents of my workshops.
It is a “passive” course so you can watch it wherever and whenever you want.
The online course consists of twelve videos, that are divided per subject.
