 How much do I need down as a repeat buyer?

Whether you are a repeat buyer or a first time home buyer, we require the same minimum down payment for an owner occupied home.

  •       Purchase price of $500,000 or less = 5%
  •       $500,000 to $999,999 = 5% of the first $500,000, 10% of the remainder
  •       $1,000,000 or more = 20% 
  •       Rental properties = 20% 


Mortgage Default Insurance 

  •       This premium is added to your mortgage balance if you put less than 20% down.
  •       Protects the lender in the event a borrower defaults on their mortgage. It does not protect you (the borrower).
  •       Gets paid with your monthly mortgage payments, NOT paid upfront.


Property Transfer Tax

  •       A tax payable to the Provincial Government by purchasers of real estate.
  •       Calculated as 1% on the first $200,000 of the purchase price, 2% on the amount between $200,000 and $2,000,000, and 3% on the amount between $2,000,000 and $3,000,000, and 5% of the value.
  •       Payable at closing.


Legal fees

  •       For services provided by your lawyer: conducting a title search, registering the mortgage and transferring your name onto title. 
  •       $800-2,000
  •       Payable at closing.
