Downpayment from RRSP’s

down-payment from RRSP’s

DownPayment From RRSPIf you as a first-time home-buyer are planning to buy your home this year and are facing the question of where will you get the down payment from? This article is for you.

One can only admit that the advantages given, by the Government of Canada when it comes to promoting homeownership are fabulous; opportunities like this should be seized, especially by those whose finances have been tight before, not allowing enough savings being allocate towards the down payment of that home that is most needed now in order to stop renting, and contributing to the payments of someone else’s mortgage. Why not contribute to the payments of your own mortgage instead?….Before it gets harder!

The Government of Canada recently announced the minimum down payment requirement will be increased from 5% to 10% on the portion of a purchase price for a property that is above $500,000 but less than $1 million on insured mortgages. This change will take effect on February 15, 2016

Getting the down payment from your RRSP’s is a very smart strategy that makes way to a greater downpayment, it requires a careful planning and commitment but it works beautifully, the greater your down payment is, the better the mortgage is for you, try it!

Do you want me to help you with your mortgage?

 

The next is just an intro on how it could work for you:

  • Read your T4’s just received by your employer, or your last week of December’s pay stub find out how much taxes you have been already deducted, and that you possibly consider now gone.
  • Calculate here what you have earned, the taxes that you have already paid and see  enter an amount that you are eligible to contribute towards your RRSP’s (see your last’s year notice of assessment from Revenue Canada), you may still add more than what you are eligible for.
  • If your tax return increases then this plan should work wonders for you.
  • Submit your online mortgage assessment application and start your process that will start sharpening numbers to give you clarity as of when you can afford to buy your home, how much you can afford, how much taxes you can save and how much returns you can also get in the following year.

You are on time to recuperate those taxes that you were already deducted from your paycheck, do not procrastinate and sieze the opportunity now!

Once we practice your mortgage assessment you will be in a better position to decide is this strategy works for you, you will also have a greater knowledge to visualize when you will finally be able to purchase your home. Not every family’s financial situation are the same, your situation is unique, that is why your mortgage assessment should be unique as well

RRSP deadline approaching

Aside

RRSP dead line

RRSP dead line

RRSP deadline is approaching and with that the opportunity to receive a higher tax return after filing your taxes, return that you can use towards the down payment to purchase your home when you are a first-time homebuyer. Don’t miss this opportunity.

If you are currently employed and renting you should pay special interest in this article, so take the time to read it and to follow along. Since you are employed, you have been deducted the corresponding from every paycheck, this is money that you haven’t received, however, you could still receive a good amount of them and be a winner in every way.  When you contribute to your RRSP’s savings you will be technically sheltering that amount from paying taxes this year by deferring its payment to when you reach retirement age. But this year, you will receive a higher tax return. Don’t miss it!

May I help you?

 

There are a number of calculators that can help you estimate the extra amount you will receive as a tax return after filing your taxes this year, click here to use one.

In case you don’t know it, just after 90 days of your savings being in your RRSP account, you can borrow them and use them towards your down payment.

In summary, you will add to your down payment savings:

  • Your RRSP’s savings (after 90 days)
  • Your extra tax return received after your taxes being filed.

Don’t miss it this year!

A financial advisor is the best person to guide you into details, but you need to have your savings registered by the end of February or you will miss the higher tax return this year.

If you are planning on buying your house anytime this year, you should start your mortgage assessment now and get a clear idea as of when you will be able to purchase your home or if you need anything else to be ready for that purchase.

Financial character

Aside

Character

Financial character

Financial character is the mental and moral group of qualities presented by an individual in regards to his/her behaviors when it comes to his/her financial agreements.

Your credit score may not be good enough to qualify for a mortgage!
Your high income may not be sufficient to qualify for a mortgage!

Have you suffer disappointments or being declined for a mortgage even when your credit score is higher than others?

Do yo have a high income, yet have being declined for a mortgage or are currently paying high interest rates?

Learning how financial character affects your ability to qualify or to obtain better mortgage rates means a great deal of money in your pockets.

Understanding that money is not everything should very important to you as it is to the financial institutions or lenders that you will seek a loan from.

Your credit score may not be good enough to qualify for a mortgage!

It is in the way your earn money and the way you use it that you create behaviors and may tell of what you give priority when you spend, how respectful and committed you can be to a promise made when requesting a loan, and what capacity you have to continue repaying a long term debt that you are asking for.

To some people making money is very easy at a time, but spending more than what they make maybe easier, to them going into credit card’s debt may be not important because they can pay the money back (at first) but without a conscience, of repaying with respect to the institution that lent them the money and the integrity to recognize that the lending and repaying transactions are a mutual commitment, the behavior patterns of those people most likely will lead to a higher un-affordable debt.

Some people pay on time and what is agreed their mortgages, but fail to do the same with their telephone or utility bills or car loan or others, this deteriorates the character of the borrower.

Paying responsibly, with consistency, on time and agreed amount (that is not yours, yo borrowed it) with consistency to all who you have celebrated a financial agreement with, will help you build a pattern of good character, one that respects financial institutions and that is always observed by the lenders when requesting a mortgage loan.

Your high income may not be sufficient to qualify for a mortgage!

Some people may have a high income, yet they may have previous commitments to car and student loans, credit cards, other monthly commitments and may not see in time that their debt ratios are getting out of hand as what they make or more is already committed.

The above example is common and may be as a result of poor management of their income.

Some people may be earning enough money to afford mortgage payments but may not be able to document all their income, this represents a higher risk for the lender. Different lenders have different appetite for risk and therefore some people may be able to support their income in different ways and qualify for a mortgage loan, but the borrower needs to understand that a higher risk means a higher interest rate in their mortgage loan.

There are also people earning good money but not capable to save for the down payment on their own, and have no assets, so where does the money go?

May I help you with your mortgage?

All this examples and a thousand more that you may be familiar with, are considered as factors that build a financial character in a person by his/her own, and are always considered by the lenders when underwriting before they decide to approve or decline a mortgage loan.

Keeping a good financial character helps you project a good image of your self when it comes to requesting a mortgage loan, it shows your respect to your agreements, to, other people, to institutions and mainly to your own commitments

With a good financial character, you could picture yourself as the client all lenders want to have in their portfolio, it gives everyone a peace of mind, you would be a promise of a long lasting relationship, it is good business for everyone, and it means to you a great deal of savings.
