Everyone has their reasons to borrow. A home is a great one.

Our homes are often the centre of our lives, the largest purchase, and our most valuable asset, there are a lot of factors to consider before making a final decision. This is why looking for someone to help you turn your hopes and ideas of home into a reality are so important.

One of the most important considerations when buying a home is financing. The first question your real estate agent will ask you is: “what is your price range?”. We can help you determine what you can afford by reviewing your current gross debt ratio and total debt ratio—that is, how much debt you have now compared to income—and let you know how much you can borrow for a mortgage. By adding together the mortgage amount you qualify for and your down payment, we can then help you define the top end of your price range.

Other important considerations include the amortization period—do you plan to pay your mortgage back in 25 years or faster? —the payment frequency—should you accelerate your mortgage payments? —and the transaction costs such as land transfer taxes and legal fees. Each of these factors has an impact on the overall carrying cost of the mortgage.

To take you through each of these considerations, we have prepared a comprehensive Facts About Mortgages guide.
