It's often said that one of the most expensive and important purchases you will ever make will be your home. However, unlike the guarantee a buyer receives with most purchases, there's no money-back guarantee or return policy if you're not satisfied with your recently purchased home.
Once you buy a home, you're on your own to maintain it, repair it, anticipate problems and pay the bills. This is why it's best to know as much as you can about potential problems before you make the commitment to buy. Learn More
The answer is yes. Through the Home Buyers' Plan (HBP), Revenue Canada permits you to use up to $25,000 of your RRSP funds as a source of down payment towards buying or building a new qualifying home. Revenue Canada will not view your eligible withdrawal amount as income therefore, that amount will not be taxed. However, there is a catch. The amount withdrawn from your RRSP must be repaid into your RRSP within a 15 year period. If you fail to make the repayment by the specified deadline, the amount that was withdrawn will then be counted as income for that year and you will be taxed.
If you use your RRSPs within the specified guidelines of the Home Buyers' Plan, you will see both immediate and long term benefits. For example, you are immediately able to increase your down payment amount which in turn decreases your principal amount owing. By owing less on the principal, you will gain substantial savings on interest alone over your mortgage term.
Many first-time home buyers are inexperienced when it comes to investing and even wonder if buying a home is a good investment? Don't take our word for it! You can ask other home owners as they tend to agree that yes buying a home is a solid investment.
Investing in real estate gives a home owner both financial leverage and possible monetary gains upon selling the residence. Because you are not required to have the full purchase price you can borrow the money to finance the purchase and when if you sell, any money made on the residence above the purchase price is tax free and yours to enjoy.
