Vacation Homes

An increasing number of Canadians are choosing to invest in vacation properties for the purpose of relaxation, wealth-building, and creating unforgettable family moments. Fortunately, there are accessible mortgages available with low interest rates for vacation properties, even those that are non-winterized or located in remote areas. Whether you are looking for a lake cottage or a housing option for your college-aged child, you can find the best mortgage to suit your needs. It's important to note that different lending criteria apply to second or third homes compared to primary residences. While some vacation and secondary homes may qualify for a minimum down payment of 5% or 10%, certain categories of these properties will require a 20% or higher down payment. These properties are categorized differently and receive different treatment from lenders. Additionally, the requirements for different types of cottages vary, with some types requiring a higher down payment and higher interest rates. The availability of mortgage options will depend on the type of property, which can be categorized as year-round accessible or seasonal. Down payments can be incorporated into the mortgage through refinancing, a home equity line of credit (HELOC), or a reverse mortgage. Fortunately, Canada offers innovative tools for streamlined processes and accurate information. If you are interested in learning more about mortgage options for vacation properties and going through a quick mortgage pre-approval process, don't hesitate to reach out for complete information.
