Investment Properties


With the current home sale prices, it is not only a great time to buy a home but also to invest in our local real estate market.


Here are some of the reasons why more Canadians are purchasing investment properties:

RETURN ON INVESTMENT

Residential real estate is a solid estate investment, typically appreciating faster than inflation.


PENSION PLAN FOR THE FUTURE

Over the long term, an investment property or multiple real estate holdings can be a great source of retirement funds.


BETTER ALTERNATIVE TO STUDENT RESIDENCE

Many Canadians are sending their kids to university and college away from home. Housing them in an investment property purchased specifically for that purpose is a good option.


EARLIER ACCESS TO A FIRST HOME

For first time home buyers, a duplex or triplex can be a terrific way to get into home-ownership.

“Rental income from the extra units can offset the cost of the mortgage”

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT INVESTMENT PROPERTIES

1. A minimum of 20% down payment is required since default insurance is not available for investment properties.  

2. That the investment has the potential to provide a better return when compared with other investments.

3. The investment should be considered a long-term investment that helps build capital.
