FAQ & RESOURCES

KNOW THE IN'S & OUT'S OF YOUR HOME

YES!  There are tons of reasons why you should talk with a bank and get pre-approved before looking at homes.  First and foremost, talking with a bank before looking at homes can help you understand exactly how much you can afford.

 

If you’re a first time home buyer, talking with a bank before looking at homes is strongly suggested, as there are many first time home buyer programs available.  These programs can vary from state to state and county to county, so knowing exactly what’s available to you, is critical.

Buying a home is an exciting time. But, as one of the largest purchases you’re likely to make, it can also be seen as one of your best long-term investments – so it’s important that you get it right. This means doing your homework and making sure that the property you will eventually buy is the right one for you in terms of price, location, value, size and lifestyle.

According to the guidelines of the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), one must have a minimum down payment of at least 5% of the total cost of the prospective property. With a down payment between 5 – 24.99%, one’s mortgage is deemed “high-ratio”. A high ratio mortgage is subject to a CMHC premium in accordance with the following schedule:

With a down payment of 25% or greater, the mortgage is deemed “conventional”. A conventional mortgage is not subject to any CMHC fees. Thus, a larger down payment represents a two-fold advantage to the prospective homebuyer. First, the prospective homebuyer will avoid CMHC premiums with 25% down payment. Secondly, a larger down payment will relate into smaller monthly payments, or a shorter amortization; both of which lead to interest savings over the life of the mortgage.

  • Yes, you can buy a home with a down payment of less than 10%:

  • Single-family dwelling: 5%

  • Two-unit dwelling: 7.5%

Minimum equity of 5% from your own resources is required. Gift down payments from an immediate relative are acceptable.

Maximum house price ceilings apply for 5% down payment. Limits of $125,000, $175,000 or $300,000 apply to locations throughout Canada.

There are numerous ways to reduce the number of years to pay down your mortgage. You’ll enjoy significant savings by:

  • Selecting a non-monthly or accelerated payment schedule

  • Increasing your payment frequency schedule

  • Making principal prepayments

  • Making double-up payments

  • Selecting a shorter amortization at renewal

First, you will have a sense of personal satisfaction owning your own home. You will be able to create your own private space that is unique to you. When you own, you can do it all your way!

A second benefit of owning is that you can deduct the cost of your mortgage loan interest from your federal income taxes. In the beginning, interest will compose nearly all of your monthly payment, for over half the number of years you will be paying your mortgage. This can add up to BIG savings at the end of each year. You are also allowed to deduct the property taxes you pay as a homeowner.

 

Another financial plus in owning a home is the possibility of the home increasing in value over time. If you rent, you write your monthly check and it is gone forever. At the end of your lease, you have nothing and face the possibility of increasing rental rates.
