Get into the dream home you always wanted to

You've decided to buy a home, and you've been searching for the right house.


Now that you found one, it is nearly perfect: decent condition, within budget, nice neighborhood.


The thing is, there’s a dreaded 1960s kitchen, with its cracked ceramic tiles, leaky taps and old cabinets - or basement is unfinished, but you were hoping ONLY if it was finished - an expensive deal-breaker that wasn't accounted for in original budget.


The first choice is walking away from it.


Second option is getting a line of credit - not necessarily the smartest way to go and definitely not easy to obtain.


Third is the purchase plus improvement - renovation credit. This program does not only get you this home and the dream kitchen, but it also saves you from a second loan by allowing you to add the renovation cost to the purchase price - you can benefit from a low mortgage interest rate and make only one payment.


The bank can lend up to 95% of the improved value of the house.


The improved value should be maximum 10% of the original price or $40 000, whichever comes first.


Example: the house is priced at $350,000 but it needs another $25,000 in renovations. You can add in the renovations cost to the purchase price and bank will lend against the total value.
> Purchase price $350,000
> Renovations $25,000
> Total cost $375,000
> Lending value $375,000
> Max. Mortgage $356,250 (95% of $375,000)
> Min. down payment $18,750


With the Renovation credit program, the down-payment is $18,750.


Your usual down-payment would have been $17,500. The difference of ONLY $1000, BUT now you would have to find $25,000 to do renovation.
