CMHC hiking mortgage insurance premiums: Video @AM640 @RoyCocciollo

Watch this video with Roy Cocciollo @AM640 to learn more about CMHC hiking mortgage insurance premiums starting March 17.

With the new mortgage stress tests introduced by Ottawa in October, “We’ve had a couple of deals fall apart because the buyers thought they were qualified for a certain amount of money, but they didn’t qualify for as much as they thought they had.”, Roy Cocciollo, Broker/Owner,

“If somebody qualified for $1M they’re only qualifying for $850,000* under the new rules.”

Even with the help of government measures such as the doubling of the provincial land transfer tax rebate for first-time buyers, it’s a tough entry-level market.

For first time home buyers looking for their Dream Home this Spring 2017, it’s important to be aware of a potential increase in interest rates and the more stringent mortgage rules. It can be scary for first time home buyers and that’s why it’s important to find a mortgage that you can live with.
