How does rental income affect my ability to purchase a second home?

About 1 out of 3 people who purchase a second home use it as an income-producing property and rent it out.  A lender can deduct the rental income from your total monthly debt payments and decrease your monthly debt per month thus increasing the amount you can afford to purchase. Talk to one of our mortgage brokers today to discuss your best options!

I want to buy a second home, will CMHC insure both my homes?

As of May 30, 2014 CMHC no longer offers is Second Home Insurance program.  If your current home is CMHC insured and you have more than 20% equity, talk to your mortgage broker about having the insurance removed so you can purchase a second home with CMHC insurance.  There are other lender insurers your mortgage broker can use like Canada Guaranty and Genworth but their programs dont always fit your mortgage needs when purchasing a second home. 

How do lenders usually qualify me for a second or vacation home?
