Buy a House or Condo in North York, Toronto with little
or No Down Payment!
When thinking of buying a home, how you are going to pay for it is the most important factor that needs to be
considered. Unless you have cash, you will be like most people and require a Mortgage.
When applying for a mortgage there is a helpful analogy that should be considered. Try to imagine a three-legged stool.
For a typical Home or Condo purchase, and in order to qualify for a mortgage, you require 3 legs:
If you remove one of those legs the stool will fall over.
In other words, you cannot get the financing.
However, there is such a thing as a one-legged stool. If you have one very solid leg the stool will remain standing, and you could likely qualify for a mortgage. As an example, if you have no down payment yet have a high enough income you could qualify for a custom financing package that would satisfy the lender(s). The understanding of how to package such a programme is dependent on the knowledge and skill of the Realtor and Mortgage Broker team.
Despite the changes introduced by the Federal Government in July 2012 and the stress test implemented just a few years ago, designed to tighten up to mortgage financing in Canada, there are still options to finance a home or condo with little or no money down for qualified buyers. A good history of paying your bills on time i.e. Excellent Credit scores plays a huge role in determining qualification.
