Let’s start with the basics. Firstly, home buying requires only 3 things:
Income – Rule of thumb is you can qualify for a mortgage 4 to 5 times your income. But only when you put less than 20% down. However, if you would like to know the exact numbers, use this calculator.
Credit history – Mostly banks prefer buyers with credit score of 680 or above. Not only this, they want to see your credit utilization is not high. But don’t worry, I understand life happens and your credit can take a HIT. Which is why, I am here to structure and present your file to the banks and answer any questions. Thus, assuring You are APPROVED!
Down payment – as per Canada.ca, the minimum down payment required is
Minimum down payment
$500,000 or less
5% of the purchase price
$500,000 to $999,999
5% of the first $500,000 of the purchase price
10% for the portion of the purchase price above $500,000
$1 million or more
20% of the purchase price
To illustrate, if the home you want to buy has price of $400,000, the minimum down payment (5%) required is $20,000.
Suppose the purchase price of your home is $700,000. The minimum down payment required is 5% on the first $500,000, which is $25,000. On the remaining $200,000, the additional down payment is 10%, which is another $20,000. So the total minimum down payment would be $45,000.
