This is the amount you have to put towards your house upfront. The minimum down payment required will change with the value of the house. If you're buying under $500,000, you will need 5%. Then up until $999,999, you will need 5% of the first $500,000 + 10% of remaining balance. Over a million and you are looking at a minimum of 20%. We can help you calculate your down payment so when that special house lists, you're ready to offer with certainty.

There are many other creative ways to come up with a down payment aside from stashing savings under your mattress. The Home Buyers Plan is a government program that enables buyers to withdraw up to $35,000 from RRSPs for their down payment. Other options include; investments, money from the sale of real estate, equity borrowed against real estate, inheritance money, or generous gifts from family members (Thanks Mom!). To avoid a hassle, always verify with us that lenders will give a thumbs up to your down payment source.

Your best mortgage is so much more than a low rate. Lower rates often come with stricter terms and more demanding qualification standards. Avoid painful surprises throughout your mortgage term by looking ahead before you lock in. Pay attention to whether the rates you are eyeing are fixed or variable rates. With a fixed rate - interest stays the same for the entire term. While a variable rate means the interest can change throughout the term. Once we have your application, we will negotiate with our trusted lenders to find a mortgage that's right for you. We promise to highlight these tiny details that make a big difference.

Don’t let unexpected fees derail your plans. Be prepared to have cash on hand to cover fees for a home inspection, appraisal, land transfer tax, legal fees, and disbursements. As part of your loan approval, banks will often want to see proof of 1.5% of your purchase price set aside for closing costs, separate from your down payment. With over 60 years of combined experience, our team has seen it all. When you share your purchasing plans with us, we will make sure you're aware of all the fees related to your particular property, if applicable (ie: land survey, water quality inspection, septic, etc.) We consider every detail, guaranteeing your mortgage journey to be hassle-free.
