It can be a challenge to save for a down payment and afford the first home. We work with a significant number of first-time home buyers. Saving for a 20% down payment takes time. It’s hard to put off spending on things you want and focusing on something you need. Buying your first home is one of the major events in your life.
On October 3, 2016 the Government of Canada announced new housing measures to increase stability of the housing market. Under the new measures, all high ratio mortgages (less than 20% down payment) are “stress tested” to determine if new borrowers can afford the mortgage if interest rates rise. Approximate 5% to 10% of new home buyers could be negatively impacted by the new measure.
Some new home buyers may have to purchase less expensive homes or add more money to the down payment. It could require people to put off purchasing a new home to save more money for a bigger down payment. Some people may use a co-signor for the home.
Vertuity Mortgage works with each customer to understand the government’s recent changes and how they affect your ability to buy a home.
