Vacation Homes

An increasing number of Canadians are choosing to invest in vacation properties for various reasons including relaxation, wealth-building, and creating family memories. These properties are more accessible thanks to mortgages with low rates, which are available even for non-winterized or remote locations. Whether it's a lake cottage or a housing option for college, Canadians can find the best mortgage to suit their needs. However, lending criteria for second or third homes differ from those for primary residences. Depending on the type of vacation or secondary home, a minimum down payment of 5% or 10% may be required, while other categories may require 20% or more. Different requirements also exist for different types of cottages, with certain types necessitating higher down payments and attracting higher rates. Mortgage options are dependent on the property's classification as either year-round accessible or seasonal. Down payments can be incorporated through mortgage refinancing, a HELOC, or even a reverse mortgage. Canada also offers innovative tools to streamline processes and ensure accuracy.
