CMHC to Allow 100% of Suite Income
Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00
The market for houses with basement apartments is about to get a little hotter. CMHC has announced it will allow 100% of the rental income from legal secondary suites to be used when qualifying for a mortgage. Currently it allows 50%. The nation’s largest default insurer says the move is meant to “facilitate affordable housing choices for Canadians.” “Secondary rental suites are recognized as a source of affordable housing offered at a cost that is often lower than those for apartments in purpose built rental buildings,” it adds. Secondary/basement suites also give lower-income Canadians the chance to live in single-family residential READ MORE

Rumours of Lunacy
Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00
By Will Dunning, Economist Special to CMT Once again, there is speculation that the federal government will tighten mortgage insurance criteria — prompted by this article in the Financial Post. Let’s begin by saying that, in most of Canada, housing markets have been far from hot. Toronto and Vancouver are seeing rapid price growth, but that is mainly due to provincial and municipal policies that restrict the supply of building lots for new homes — in those two cases, lack of supply is the issue, not mortgage lending. Elsewhere, home sales and price growth have been moderate during the past READ MORE

Changes in the Benchmark Bond
Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00
As most readers here know, fixed mortgage rates follow bond yields over time. That’s why, with the 5-year fixed being Canada’s most popular term, mortgage originators keep close watch on the 5-year government bond yield. Last Thursday, however, the 5-year yield displayed what some deemed to be a concerning 11-basis-point spike. The Bank of Canada’s website noted the same 11 bps increase. To an untrained eye, this leap in yield might have been caused by ominous inflationary news (inflation expectations are the #1 factor influencing bond yields). In reality, Thursday’s jump in the 5-year yield was simply the result of a change in the benchmark bond. Many READ MORE

Seniors Can Now Tap More Equity
Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00
Earlier this year HomEquity Bank increased its maximum loan-to-value on a reverse mortgage to 55% (in some cases slightly more). It was a change made with little fanfare, but one that will provide necessary cash to thousands more senior homeowners. Prior to this change, the bank lent up to one-half of a property’s appraised value. Now, qualified seniors can access at least $20,000 more on a $400,000 property, for example. This money can be a lifeline when an elderly homeowner has immediate expenses (e.g., medical costs), but no other source of liquidity and a need to stay in their home. READ MORE
