The More Together Mortgage
Home prices in Ontario have reached record highs, seemingly putting ownership out of reach for many potential home buyers. Not all hope is lost! There are alternatives to consider such as real estate co-ownership. Real Estate co-ownership allows you to share the cost of buying a home with friends, roommates, co-workers, or family members. Combining your borrowing power lets you:
- Put together a deposit faster, meaning you can purchase a home sooner
- Have more choice of location, home size and potentially have enough money for needed renovations
- Potentially have 20 per cent of the purchase price which allows you to avoid paying costly mortgage insurance
- More easily afford the ongoing costs associated with home ownership like repairs, property taxes, etc.
Creating a Co-Ownership Agreement
It's important when coming together with multiple parties to understand shared responsibilities and accountabilities, and to make sure you have this in writing. A Co-Ownership Agreement is a integral part of a Co-Ownership arrangement.
