Vacation Homes

An increasing number of Canadians are choosing to invest in vacation properties for various reasons such as relaxation, wealth-building, and quality family time. The availability of accessible mortgages at low rates makes it easier for individuals to purchase vacation properties, even in non-winterized or remote locations. Whether it's a lake cottage or a college housing option, borrowers can find the best mortgage to suit their needs. However, it is important to note that lending criteria for second or third homes differ from primary residences. While some vacation and secondary homes may require a minimum down payment of 5% or 10%, others may require 20% or higher. Different types of cottages also have varying requirements, with certain types necessitating a higher down payment and incurring higher rates. Mortgage options are also influenced by the property type, which can be categorized as either year-round accessible or seasonal. To incorporate down payments, borrowers can consider options such as mortgage refinancing, a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC), or a reverse mortgage. Thanks to innovative tools in Canada, the mortgage process has become more streamlined and accurate. For complete information and a quick mortgage pre-approval process, individuals are encouraged to reach out for assistance.
