The In’s and Out’s of Mortgage Pre-Approvals

When you’re house hunting anywhere in the greater Victoria area; from James Bay to Oak Bay, from Saanich to Langford, it’s a great idea to know the mortgage amount you qualify for, your monthly payments, and that your interest rate will be held for a specified period of time i.e. 90 to 120 days. In some cases the pre-approval and rate-hold period can be even longer.  This way you can shop within your price range, you don't have to worry about rates rising, and both realtors and sellers will know you're a serious buyer. This is particularly important in a tight market where inventory is low and there is competition between several buyers. Be realistic and make sure you can afford that pre-approved amount; review all of your home ownership expenses and your monthly budget including property taxes and regular upkeep. Keep in mind that not all pre-approvals are the [...]

Buying a fixer upper? Looking to renovate?

So you’re one of those buyers who absolutely loves older homes: the character, the unique architecture, the settled neighbourhood… and maybe the great value.  Maybe its James Bay, or Fairfield or Oak Bay.  Sometimes older homes with “great bones” sometimes need a little renovation to turn them into the home of your dreams. The Victoria market has many older homes that can benefit from a great renovation and there is the very real possibility of turning your hard work and vision into increased home equity.  Unfortunately, sometimes on top of the home purchase price, a few costly renovations can be a big burden on your savings or even worse, your credit cards. We have good news.  We can bundle the cost of those immediate renovations right into the mortgage: so instead of sky-high credit card and line of credit bills… you’ve got your mortgage and renovations looked after in one [...]

Understanding the “Collateral Charge” Mortgage

What is a collateral charge mortgage?  Here’s how it works: the bank registers the mortgage for more than the value of the home at closing.  So if you have a $400,000 mortgage and a $700,000 home, the bank will register a charge up to $875,000.  This has several side-effects, including locking you in to the lender, their limited products an their rates. We’re not big fans of the collateral charge mortgage – because we’re all about keeping your options open. Collateral charge mortgages are very difficult to transfer to another lender. So you might see a great rate or mortgage feature at another lender, but it’ll cost you to switch.  Generally, you would need to start from the beginning of the process all over again, including time and paperwork, and pay new legal fees. There are some lenders who only offer collateral charge mortgages, with catchy marketing terms they like [...]

A Changing and Complex Mortgage World!

Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. (CMHC) recently announced that as of May 30th, it will stop insuring both second homes and self-employed borrowers who don’t have standard documents to prove their income. Canada’s private mortgage insurers did not follow suit, although putting limitations on their second-home programs. Other new rules currently under review could mean the complete elimination of cash-back down payments. There have been many changes to the mortgage landscape in the last few years, making it more important than ever to get expert and timely mortgage advice and access to as many options as possible. If you’re concerned about how changing rules might impact your home ownership goals, let’s talk!

Victoria makes it easier and cheaper for homeowners to build garden suites

The Canadian Press Posted: Apr 15, 2017 10:10 PM PT Victoria makes it easier and cheaper for homeowners to build garden suites: Previously garden suite applications were evaluated by council on case-by-case basis Victoria city councilors have voted to allow garden suites in all single-family homes in a move to increase rental housing options. The city says there are 6,700 single family homes in Victoria and allowing more garden suites could alleviate the very tight rental market. "It has the potential to be a very large step, we hope homeowners will consider it," said Victoria mayor Lisa Helps. Until now, garden suite applications were evaluated by council on a case-by-case basis. Only 18 garden suites have been built in Victoria since 2011, far fewer compared to cities such as Vancouver. The city says the change doesn't override regulations for privacy and safety for building garden suites, but it will make [...]

Gifted Down Payment and CMHC

March 14, 2017 The Bank of Canada left their overnight rate unchanged at 0.50% as Canada’s economy continues to operate with excess capacity. Recent changes by the government to stabilize our housing market will temper residential investment and our broader economy. This will help keep inflation low and bodes well for continued low interest rates in the foreseeable future. After trending higher in the last few months, bond yields have stabilized with mortgage interest rates now hovering in the 2.24% – 2.94% range OAC. In the USA the US Federal Reserve signaled they may raise their overnight lending rate March 15th. 77% of analysts are expecting an increase unless last minute data from non-farm payrolls and average hourly wages fall dramatically this week. This should drive the US Dollar higher and help Canada’s exports as long as trade negotiations with the Trump administration don’t cause a disruption. This uncertainty remains [...]

Residential Market Commentary – week of February 6, 2017

Residential Market Commentary - week of February 6, 2017 Feb 6, 2017, 11:25 AM by Maria Broekhof - First National Real estate boards across the country are releasing their January numbers and they seem to be telling a story of pain and gain. Government efforts to cool the market appear to be working in the Greater Vancouver Area.  Sales, for all housing types continued to drop, falling nearly 40% compared to January 2016.  The MLS composite benchmark price also continued to slide, dipping 0.2% compared to last January.  Prices are off nearly 4% in the past six months. That’s the pain.  On the gain side Victoria and Toronto may be capitalizing on Vancouver’s loss.   Victoria saw its benchmark price jump more than 24% compared to last January.  Sales slipped 11% on a 39% drop in inventory.  In Toronto, sales jumped nearly 12%, led by condos.  The composite benchmark price [...]

Breaking News: BC Mortgage First Time Buyer Down Payment Loan

Do you qualify for the BC Down Payment Loan Program? You can find all the eligibility details - CLICK here. VICTORIA — The B.C. government will loan first-time home buyers some of the cash they need to afford their down payment, Premier Christy Clark announced Thursday. The program will provide a government-backed loan of up to $37,500, or five per cent, of the purchase price of a home for qualified buyers, starting Jan. 16, 2017.

The 25-year loan is interest-free for the first five years, and does not require the homeowner to even pay down the principal during those first five years, as long as they keep the home as [...]
