New Down Payment Rules

New down payment rules will go into effect February 15, 2016.

“The Government’s role in housing is to set and maintain a framework that is equitable, stable and sustainable. The actions taken today prudently address emerging vulnerabilities in certain housing markets, while not overburdening other regions,” Finance Minister Bill Morneau said in a release. “They also rebalance government support for the housing sector to promote long-term stability and balanced economic growth.”

The minimum down payment for new insured mortgages will increase from 5% to 10% for the portion of the house price above $500,000, the finance ministry wrote.
For example: A $750,000 home will now require $50,000 down — 5% for the first $500,000 and 10% down for the remaining $250,000.

Properties up to $500,000 will continue to require a minimum of 5% down. Properties in excess of $1 million will still require 20% down.

As always, please feel free to call or email me anytime for more details. I’m here to help.
thanks,….Patrick
