Mortgage financing for Million dollar homes

As of Feb 2016 the Canadian Government has made changes affecting mortgage financing on homes above $500,000.

Effectively, a home up to $500,000 will require a down payment of 5% ( unchanged), anything over that will require a 10% down payment on the difference between the actual purchase price less $500.000.

Example:   purchase price:  $ 600,000

down payment:  a)  5% of first $500.000 = $25,000

b) 10% of $100,000 =         $10,000

for a total down payment of $35,000.

Properties of up to $1,000,000 will now require 20% down.  There will no longer be Government backing on these properties. CMHC and Genworth financing will not be insuring loans on homes valued at over $1,000,000.

As the average price in the Toronto and Vancouver markets have risen significantly (the average priced home are now, $1M), coming up with the down payment and finding a lender to approve the mortgage has become challenging.

What we can do to help you finance a home of $1,000,000 Plus

  • Arrange a mortgage at the lowest possible rate based on your credit worthiness.  This means it can be our our best rates.  If your credit is challenged we will arrange a shorter term mortgage with our alternative lenders giving you time to repair and rebuild your credit.
  • Many of our mortgages do not have scaled lending limits.  This means if you need 80% it will be the same rate for the full amount.
  • Down payment.  If you require assistance to raise additional down payment to meet the new down payment rules, we can arrange secondary financing.
  • All our mortgages carry flexible re payment and maximum amortizations of 30 years ( uninsured only).
