New Mortgage Rules Made Easy

So here is a simple explanation of the new mortgage rules:

Clients purchasing a residence for their own personal use
  1. CMHC or GE insured mortgage require 5% down payment (1st time buyers)
  2. To avoid CMHC you need 20% down payment (not 25%)
  3. To qualify for a variable rate mortgage they must quality by using the 5 year fixed rate regardless of what you go for
Clients purchasing an investment property
  1. CMHC will no longer insure rental properties
  2. Clients must have 20% down payment (not 25%)
  3. The financial institution will only use 50% of the rental income to service the debt
So if you looking to buy either 1st time home or investment now is the time!
