Winnipeg & Manitoba First Time Home Buyer Frequently Asked Questions

We get lots of questions from new home buyers when it comes to how to get a mortgage. Below are just a few of the most common items and as always, we are glad to answer any questions you might have.

What's the 1st step in the buying process?

The first step is usually getting pre-approved for a mortgage. This gives you an idea of how much you can afford, helping you narrow down your home search to properties within your budget.

How much down payment do I need?

The required down payment varies, but in Canada, it's typically 5% of the home's purchase price for properties less than $500,000. For homes over $500,000, you'll need 5% for the first $500,000 and 10% for the portion of the price above $500,000.

How do I choose the right mortgage?

Consider factors like the interest rate, term length, flexibility in repayment options, and whether a fixed or variable rate suits your financial situation better. We can help you navigate these choices and find the best mortgage for your needs.

What additional costs are there?

Beyond the down payment, be prepared for closing costs (like legal fees, land transfer taxes, and home inspection fees), which can range from 1.5% to 4% of the purchase price, as well as ongoing expenses such as property taxes, home insurance, and maintenance.

What is mortgage loan insurance?

If your down payment is less than 20% of the purchase price, you'll need mortgage loan insurance. This protects the lender in case you default on the loan and typically adds to the cost of your mortgage.

Are there government programs for first-time home buyers?

In Canada, there are several programs to assist first-time buyers, such as the First-Time Home Buyer Incentive, which offers 5% or 10% towards your down payment, and the Home Buyers' Plan, allowing you to withdraw up to $35,000 tax-free from your RRSP to buy or build a qualifying home.
