First-time home buyers have many decisions to make after deciding to purchase a new home. These decisions can be overwhelming and even frustrating if they do not have all the facts.
A common question for many first-time home buyers is whether or not to build brand new or to purchase a re-sale. Let our professional mortgage brokers at Alberta Equity Mortgages ease your frustration by offering solid advice while providing both the pros and cons of building brand new or purchasing re-sale.
Coming up with enough money for a down payment can be difficult for many potential home buyers, so they often settle for simply putting the minimum 5% down.
However, it is better to put down as much as possible towards the purchase price because the more you put down, the less money you have to borrow and as a result your mortgage payments are lower and easier to manage financially.
If you are able to put down 20% of the purchase price, then you are not required to purchase mortgage insurance thus saving yourself more money over the life of your mortgage.
