Only a 5% down payment is required for homeownership in Canada. Don’t have it saved? Other options include a gifted down payment from an immediate family member, the City of Kingston Down Payment Assistance Program or the Home Buyers Plan.
The Home Buyers Plan allows you to borrow up to $25,000 ($50,000 combined, if you are a couple) tax-free from an RRSP for the down payment. You must repay that over 15 years to avoiding paying tax. Other requirements are that you must be a resident of Canada, have not owned a home for the five years preceding the purchase, and the money must be in your RRSP for at least 90 days.
We can help you discover other options that may be available.
Land Transfer Tax Credit
First-time home buyers may be eligible to receive a credit of $4,000 on land transfer tax. This is very significant savings on closing costs. Contact us for further details.
First-Time Home Buyer Incentive
The First-Time Home Buyer Incentive helps qualified first-time home buyers reduce their monthly mortgage carrying costs without adding to their financial burden. To qualify, you need to have the minimum down payment (savings or gifted), qualifying income of no more than $120,000 and the max purchase price is 4 times the qualifying income plus the down payment. Once you’ve determined that you meet the criteria, you can apply for a 5% or 10% shared equity mortgage with the Government of Canada.
