Vacation Homes

The number of Canadians investing in vacation properties is on the rise. Many individuals are looking to invest in a getaway home for various reasons such as relaxation, wealth-building, and creating precious family moments. The good news is that there are accessible mortgages available, even for non-winterized or remote locations, with low interest rates specifically designed for vacation properties. Whether you are looking for a lake cottage or a housing option for your college student, you can find the best mortgage to meet your needs. However, it is 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%, others may require a higher down payment of 20% or more. This is because these properties are categorized differently and receive different treatment from lenders. Additionally, the requirements for different types of cottages vary, with certain types requiring a higher down payment and receiving higher interest rates. Mortgage options will also depend on whether the property is classified as year-round accessible or seasonal. Financing can be achieved through various methods such as mortgage refinancing, a home equity line of credit (HELOC), or even a reverse mortgage. In Canada, there are innovative tools available to streamline the mortgage process and ensure accuracy. For complete information and a quick mortgage pre-approval process, don't hesitate to reach out.
