Vacation Homes

An increasing number of Canadians are choosing to invest in vacation properties for various reasons such as relaxation, wealth-building, and family moments. Luckily, there are accessible mortgages with low rates available for vacation properties, even for those in non-winterized or remote locations. Whether you are looking for a lake cottage or a housing option near a college, you can find the best mortgage to suit your needs. However, it's 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 20% or more. This is because vacation and secondary homes are categorized differently and receive different treatment from lenders. Furthermore, different types of cottages have different requirements, with certain types requiring a higher down payment and receiving higher rates. The availability of mortgage options also depends on the property type, whether it is categorized as year-round accessible or seasonal. To incorporate down payments, various methods such as mortgage refinancing, a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC), or a reverse mortgage can be considered. To make the process more convenient, innovative tools are available in Canada for streamlined processes and accuracy.
