How To Cut Years Off Your Mortgage Few people can buy a home for cash. Most of us have a difficult enough time saving the money needed for a down payment. To realize the dream of home ownership, we usually have to combine our savings with borrowed money through a financial arrangement called a mortgage.

250-752-6926 Toll Free: 1-800-224-5906

Paying off a mortgage is usually a long-term commitment over many years. Most homeowners would like to be mortgage-free sooner. Even if you lock into a long-term mortgage with an affordable interest rate, many lenders today offer the flexibility to pay down the principal and interest faster than scheduled.

156 Fourth Ave, W., Qualicum Beach

To ensure you have the flexibility to cut years off your mortgage, you need to look at the options and understand them before you buy. When house hunting, ask your REALTOR® to help you calculate how much mortgage you can afford. Your REALTOR® will also be able to explain the many financial options available. Before buying, shop around and compare what different lenders (banks, trust companies and other financial institutions) have to offer. You’ll want to compare not only interest rates, but the different types of payment and prepayment options offered.

The typical mortgage Typically, mortgages are amortized over 25 years. This is the length of time it will take you to pay the principal, or amount borrowed, plus interest, off in full. Lenders provide money at a variable or set interest rate for a specific period or term, ranging anywhere from six months to 10 years. Most common is the conventional mortgage, where a lender will loan up to 75 per cent of the appraised value of the home or the purchase price, whichever is lower. The remaining 25 per cent is what the buyer contributes as a down payment. Some lenders offer highratio mortgages, which require only 10 per cent down if a buyer qualifies. Governmentassisted mortgages enable eligible buyers to borrow up to 95 per cent of the value of a home.

• Location, location! • 2 bed, 2 bath rancher on crawl in the heart of Qualicum Beach! Offered at

Despite prepayment privileges in many cases, most mortgages are “closed”. This means they can’t be paid off in full without penalty until they mature at the end of their term. “Open” mortgages can be paid off at any time without penalty, but they usually bear a higher interest rate. Still, there are other ways of paying that mortgage off faster, without paying a high price.

• South facing backyard. • Walking distance to shopping and dining.

Get the best interest rate Interest rates can make a huge difference on payments. Study the market. If rates are falling, take out a short term and lock into a longer term when rates have fallen even more. If rates are rising, lock in for a longer term. If the rates keep fluctuating, take advantage of options offered by lenders such as short-term convertible mortgages, where you can lock into a fixed rate at any time; or variable rate mortgages, where rates change along with market fluctuations. The key is to keep your payments as low as possible, so that you can take advantage of other options such as double-up payments and annual lump sum payments.

REALTORS You can’t afford not to be here!

Shorten the amortization period The average amortization period is 25 years, but you can arrange for a shorter period. The shorter the period, the larger your payments, but the more you save on interest and the long-term cost of your loan. This is a great idea when interest rates are low and you can afford larger monthly payments. Accelerate your payments Few people can buy a home for cash. Most of us have a difficult enough time saving the money needed for a down payment. To realize the dream of home ownership, we usually have to combine our savings with borrowed money through a financial arrangement called a mortgage. Double-up payments Some lenders allow you to make additional payments against your mortgage balance (up to the equivalent of a full monthly payment) occasionally, or even every payment date. The extra payment is directly applied to your mortgage principal to reduce the total balance. Making the equivalent of just two additional monthly payments a year can cut years off your mortgage.

FREE

Lump sum payments Some lenders allow you to prepay a one-time lump sum each calendar year. This lump sum, along with other annual pre-payment privileges, generally does not exceed 10 to 20 per cent of the original principal amount of the mortgage. Once again, the money goes directly to reducing your principal. However, when the term of your mortgage is up, most lenders will allow you to make any size repayment at no extra charge.

L Y M O N T H

Annual payment increase If you feel you can afford slightly higher payments, many lenders today allow you to boost your regular mortgage payments once each year throughout the term of your mortgage and to apply that increase directly to reduce your principal. By increasing your payments by as little as $15.00 or $20.00 per month, you can also cut years off your mortgage. Re-Finance your mortgage If you have a fixed, closed, long-term mortgage and rates have fallen more than two per cent, you may want to re-finance the loan to get the better rate. The cost of re-financing can be very high. To discharge your closed mortgage, you with either have to pay three months’ interest penalty or an “interest differential” which can cost considerably more. Calculate carefully and seek expert advice before re-financing, or you could end up paying more than if you stayed the course on your current rate.

Buying a Home: What Can You Afford?

QUALICUM WOODS 479 Timberlane Place

$345,900 Located on a quiet cul-de-sac, this rancher has 1771 sq. ft., 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and is ready for immediate occupancy. The large living room has a wood burning fireplace, and French doors lead to a patio and low maintenance fenced back yard. The bright kitchen and nook are surrounded by windows, French doors, and a skylight making it a bright and functional area. The master bedroom has a 3 piece ensuite bathroom with a large shower, generous walk-in closet and a bay window. This freshly painted home is ready for you!

Few people can buy a home for cash. Most of us have a difficult enough time saving the If you’re thinking about buying a home, a question that will undoubtedly weigh heavily on your mind is: “How much can I afford?” Obviously, affordability will play a major part in your decision making process. You want to be able to buy something you like, but you don’t want to feel stretched to the limit when it comes to meeting your financial obligations. Once you discover exactly what you can afford, you can be more realistic in your expectations. If you’re like most people, you lack the funds to make a purchase without seeking substantial help from a lending institution. In addition to coming up with a down payment, you’ll have to arrange a mortgage.

CRAIG BAY 1211 Gabriola Drive

$449,900 Please make an appointment to view this beautiful Craig Bay Langara model home. It has 2,000 sq. ft., 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms. The generous kitchen with its maple cabinets is bright and cheerful and opens onto the nook and family room. The nook looks out onto a very private back patio, beautifully maintained grounds and a small pond. Natural gas fireplaces enhance the ambience in both the living and family rooms. The vaulted ceiling and large windows give the living and dining room a spacious and airy feeling.

Basically, there are two types of costs involved in buying a home: The amount of money you’ll need for the initial purchase -- consisting of the down payment plus additional costs such as legal fees, inspection fees and taxes; and The ongoing costs of paying back your mortgage, along with monthly operating costs for utilities, maintenance, insurance and annual property taxes. Lenders use several factors in judging your ability to handle a mortgage, including your income, employment record and credit worthiness. However, one way you can estimate the price range you can afford is to look at the amount of money you have available for a down payment.

OCEAN AND POND VIEWS 1272 Saltspring Place

The remaining 25 percent or more is the amount you will contribute as a down payment. So, if you plan to buy a home that has an appraised value of $100,000, a lender may loan you 75 per cent or $75,000 on a conventional mortgage when you contribute a down payment of $25,000.

If you plan to borrow funds through a conventional mortgage, simply multiply your down payment funds by four, to get an idea of the highest priced home you could buy. Then you will have to determine whether you have sufficient income to make the payments on your mortgage. Most lenders won’t let you take on debt that you can’t service. That’s why they’ll “qualify” you first, before agreeing to give you a mortgage.

$529,900 A SPECIAL OCEANFRONT Craig Bay home features ocean views on the north side of the home and pond views on the sunny south side of the home. It is a short walk across Heritage Lands to the beach. On the main floor the beautiful master bedroom faces the ocean and there is a sunny living room. The guest bedroom with its fabulous ocean views is on the second floor along with an ensuite bathroom. The loft is perfect for an office and overlooks the family room. There is a multifunctional bonus room upstairs.

The most common type of mortgage is a “conventional mortgage.” Under this type of mortgage, lenders will loan up to 75 percent of the appraised value of the property or purchase price, whichever is lower.

Independently Owned & Operated

graemehardy@shaw.ca http://graemehardy.point2agent.com

HIGH-RATIO MORTGAGE If you don’t have a 25 per cent down payment, you may want to investigate a high-ratio mortgage. This type of mortgage is available for up to 95 per cent of a home’s appraised value or purchase price, whichever is lower, up to a maximum amount set by the government. Since you are borrowing more than 75 per cent, the government insists that the mortgage be insured against default and that you pay the cost of the insurance. That cost can range from one to three per cent of the mortgage amount, and is added to the mortgage principal. LENDERS’ CONSIDERATIONS To determine your eligibility, lenders will look at your monthly housing expenses. These include such items as mortgage payments, property taxes, and utility costs. These shouldn’t exceed approximately 30 percent of your monthly gross family income. This is called your “Gross Debt Service” ratio or GDS. (Some lenders will, in fact, go as high as 35 per cent, depending on a number of variables.) Lenders also use a second calculation in qualifying you for a mortgage. It’s called the “Total Debt Service” ratio or TDS. Generally speaking, no more than 40 percent of your gross family income may be used to cover mortgage payments, property taxes, utility costs, plus other fixed monthly payments. These other fixed costs are your ongoing commitments and can include auto, student or personal loans as well as charge accounts. Lenders will look at both your GDS and TDS amounts in calculating the size of the loan they will grant you for the home you wish to purchase. Once they’ve determined the amount of your monthly income available for mortgage payments, they’ll calculate the mortgage amount you can have. This is based on current interest rates charged by lenders. TRY LIVING ON YOUR NEW BUDGET FIRST Once you’ve calculated these factors, it’s a good idea to try living for a couple of months as if you were paying a mortgage, along with your other living expenses, to see just how well you manage. After all, it may be feasible on paper, but you may not be comfortable with this amount of your income being allocated towards a mortgage. Better to find out now, before you actually make a purchase. You may readjust your spending habits in other areas for a while. However, if you’re comfortable with this test run, then it’s time to start looking for your new home.

Choosing The REALTOR® Who’s Right For You. If you’re selling or buying a home, you know it’s a process that can’t be rushed. You need time to make the right choices and decisions. After all, selling or buying a home is one of the largest and most important business transactions in which you’re likely to be involved. As a result, you’ll need to work with someone who understands your needs and wants -- someone you trust and with whom you feel comfortable. That’s why it’s important to work with a REALTOR® and to know how to go about choosing the one who’s right for you. By definition, a REALTOR®’s primary role is to bring buyers and sellers together to facilitate a sale. A REALTOR® is a licensed real estate professional who is a member of the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board and therefore has access to the Multiple Listing Service ® (MLS®) run by the Board. Both terms, REALTOR® and MLS® are trademarks owned by The Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA). Members of the local Board are also members of CREA and therefore are permitted to use these trademarks. When you work with a REALTOR® you can expect strict adherence to provincial law, as well as to a national Code of Ethics -- ensuring you’ll receive the highest level of service and integrity.

‘Open Houses’ are also a good way to meet REALTORS, especially if you’re interested in purchasing a home. You can also refer to real estate signs in your chosen area. If no name appears, call the phone number on the sign and ask to be referred to a REALTOR® in that firm. Some people mistakenly contact the real estate board for referral to a REALTOR®. A real estate board does not provide a referral service for REALTORS. The Board was created to provide services to its members. Still, the Board will confirm whether a real estate practitioner is a member, and therefore a REALTOR®. THE INTERVIEW When choosing a real estate professional, it’s a good idea to talk to two or three sales representatives from different companies to determine what types of information and experience they and their companies have to offer. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. If you’re selling your home, ask those you interview about the type of marketing plan they have in mind for your home. Obviously, you’ll want to learn of their reputation and reliability. You may also want to consider asking for references from buyers or sellers with whom the REALTOR® has worked.

Real estate professionals know their markets inside-out because they inspect open houses and research all listings. As a result, they have expertise in assessing what comparable homes are selling for within any given neighbourhood.

Further, since you’ll be working closely with a REALTOR® for weeks or possibly months, it’s a good idea to choose someone who listens to what you say, asks intelligent questions and shows a genuine interest in helping you.

HOW DO I FIND A REALTOR®?

PREPARATORY WORK

There are many ways to go about finding the REALTOR® who’s right for you. First, try consulting friends, relatives and neighbours to see if they can recommend someone. You may also want to try searching through local newspaper real estate advertisements.

Keep in mind that REALTORS cannot work independently of your input. You must be willing to do some preparatory work yourself and be prepared to dedicate a certain amount of time to working with the REALTOR® you have chosen.

The Vancouver Island Real Estate Board (VIREB) represents over 900 REALTORS and administers the Multiple Listing Service® system north of the Malahat to the northern-most reaches of the Island. This article was provided on behalf of VIREB REALTORS for the information and benefit of consumers. For more information, visit the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board’s website online at www.vireb.com or call 250-390-4212.

So, before you enlist the help of a REALTOR®, you should have a clear set of objectives in mind. Be honest and open in discussing your financial situation and, if you’re buying, carefully review the features you absolutely must have in a home, versus those features you’d merely like to have. LOYALTY IS A MUST It’s also important to remain loyal to the REALTOR® you’ve chosen if he or she has earned your trust. This person will be spending a lot of time and effort on your behalf, but won’t be paid until the transaction is completed. If you’re a buyer, getting involved with several REALTORS can create unnecessary and confusing duplication of effort. In fact, buyers who deal with several REALTORS may miss out on the high level of interest and comprehensive service one is entitled to expect by working closely with a single, competent REALTOR®. COOPERATION REALLY WORKS Remember, although you’ll be working with one REALTOR®, members of the Board cooperate extensively with each other to facilitate showings and sales for the benefit of other clients and customers. So, if you see a ‘For Sale’ sign on a house in which you’re interested, simply ask the REALTOR® you’re working with to arrange an appointment to view the home. This service is, in fact, what the Multiple Listing Service® system is all about -REALTORS cooperating with REALTORS to bring buyers and sellers together to achieve their mutual goals.

Use a REALTOR® or go it alone? Do you really need a REALTOR® when selling your home or can you do it yourself? Selling a home is one of the biggest financial transactions most of us will ever make. Realtors have the qualifications and experience to help you make a successful sale.

Handling a real estate transaction on your own is like trying to repair your own car. Sure you can buy the parts and tools, but unless you have the skill of a professional, you may end up making a very costly mistake. Most people who buy or sell their homes do enlist the services of a REALTOR®. And usually the few who attempt to “do it themselves” wind up changing their minds and contacting a REALTOR® when they discover the process is too complex, too time consuming and too intimidating without the help of a professional.

Saving money? The main reason people cite for attempting to sell their own homes is to save on the real estate commission. But will you really save money if you sell your home yourself? Probably not. Most buyers expect a discount because you don’t have to pay the real estate commission and as a result may offer you less than fair market value. Determining fair market value is one area requiring a REALTOR®’s extensive knowledge and training. If you set your price too high, you may frighten off potential buyers; set it too low and you could lose thousands of dollars needlessly. One of your REALTOR®’s most important tasks will be to help you decide upon a realistic market value for your home that will enable you to sell it quickly and for the best possible price.

Getting exposure Through the MLS (Multiple Listing Service), your REALTOR® will ensure your home gets maximum exposure to a vast amount of Realtors and potential home buyers. This is just one of the ways a REALTOR® will market your home. He or she may also use advertising in newspapers, on television and/ or on the Internet as well as a “For Sale” sign on your lawn. Your marketing plan may also include an open house for Realtors and for the public. Your REALTOR® will work with you to develop a marketing plan that meets your needs.

Time commitment

HOME SWEET HOME

Do you really have the time it takes to sell your home? A REALTOR® will write and pay for the ads to market your home, remain available day and night for calls from prospects, host open houses on the weekends, show your property on short notice, screen potential buyers, fill-out all the paperwork, handle the negotiations and do dozens of other things required to sell a home. When you consider the amount of time invested, are you really saving any money by going it alone?

Negotiating skills Many homeowners lack the skill to negotiate the best price for their home. Also, selling your home can be a highly emotional experience making it almost impossible to remain neutral when potential buyers make negative comments about your property. A defensive attitude could get in the way of a smooth transaction. A REALTOR® is a skilled negotiator who can remain impartial during the negotiations and keep your stress levels to a minimum.

Beautifully renovated home now features engineered hardwood throughout, tiles in the main bath and heated tiles in the ensuite. Granite counters in the kitchen and bath, new stainless fridge, stove, dishwasher and over range microwave/ fan. A new pantry cupboard completes this bright kitchen with spacious eating nook with an island. Immaculately kept home boasts a spacious living room with gas ���replace with a new mantle, raised ceilings, formal dining area, all new light fixtures and new washer and dryer, baseboard and trims, paint make this home ready to move into and enjoy. With its multiple large windows with sweeping private views over the manicured lawns and gardens from most rooms, you will feel as if you were on a larger estate property. You will get to enjoy the outdoors on either of your two decks one accessible from the kitchen which will make entertaining a breeze and a pleasure. All this in a 55+ well maintained community and shopping is just a nice stroll away and access to a nice neighborhood park. This lovely home is on a crawl space and has a single car garage with a storage room, small pet allowed. This home is priced to sell, $279,900.

Use a REALTOR® to sell your home When you consider all the services they provide, everything from marketing, to negotiating to dealing with contracts and legal issues, it pays to have a REALTOR® on your side. Working with a licensed real estate professional to sell your home, someone who is a member of the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board, entitles you to a vast array of services and benefits you would not get as a “do-it-yourselfer.”be built on a right of way.

Use a REALTOR® or go it alone? Do you really need a REALTOR® when selling your home or can you do it yourself? Selling a home is one of the biggest financial transactions most of us will ever make. Realtors have the qualifications and experience to help you make a successful sale.

Handling a real estate transaction on your own is like trying to repair your own car. Sure you can buy the parts and tools, but unless you have the skill of a professional, you may end up making a very costly mistake. Most people who buy or sell their homes do enlist the services of a REALTOR®. And usually the few who attempt to “do it themselves” wind up changing their minds and contacting a REALTOR® when they discover the process is too complex, too time consuming and too intimidating without the help of a professional. Saving money? The main reason people cite for attempting to sell their own homes is to save on the real estate commission. But will you really save money if you sell your home yourself? Probably not. Most buyers expect a discount because you don’t have to pay the real estate commission and as a result may offer you less than fair market value.

• attractive 2 bedroom 2 bath plus loft

Determining fair market value is one area requiring a REALTOR®’s extensive knowledge and training. If you set your price too high, you may frighten off potential buyers; set it too low and you could lose thousands of dollars needlessly. One of your REALTOR®’s most important tasks will be to help you decide upon a realistic market value for your home that will enable you to sell it quickly and for the best possible price.

Through the MLS (Multiple Listing Service), your REALTOR® will ensure your home gets maximum exposure to a vast amount of Realtors and potential home buyers. This is just one of the ways a REALTOR® will market your home. He or she may also use advertising in newspapers, on television and/or on the Internet as well as a “For Sale” sign on your lawn. Your marketing plan may also include an open house for Realtors and for the public. Your REALTOR® will work with you to develop a marketing plan that meets your needs. Time commitment

nice big yard • 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, crawl space • fresh paint and carpets, double garage

Do you really have the time it takes to sell your home? A REALTOR® will write and pay for the ads to market your home, remain available day and night for calls from prospects, host open houses on the weekends, show your property on short notice, screen potential buyers, fill-out all the paperwork, handle the negotiations and do dozens of other things required to sell a home. When you consider the amount of time invested, are you really saving any money by going it alone? Negotiating skills

Many homeowners lack the skill to negotiate the best price for their home. Also, selling your home can be a highly emotional experience making it almost impossible to remain neutral when potential buyers make negative comments about your property. A defensive attitude could get in the way of a smooth transaction. A REALTOR® is a skilled negotiator who can remain impartial during the negotiations and keep your stress levels to a minimum. Use a REALTOR® to sell your home When you consider all the services they provide, everything from marketing, to negotiating to dealing with contracts and legal issues, it pays to have a REALTOR® on your side. Working with a licensed real estate professional to sell your home, someone who is a member of the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board, entitles you to a vast array of services and benefits you would not get as a “do-it-yourselfer.”be built on a right of way.

Choosing The REALTOR® Who’s Right For You. If you’re selling or buying a home, you know it’s a process that can’t be rushed. You need time to make the right choices and decisions. After all, selling or buying a home is one of the largest and most important business transactions in which you’re likely to be involved. As a result, you’ll need to work with someone who understands your needs and wants -- someone you trust and with whom you feel comfortable. That’s why it’s important to work with a REALTOR® and to know how to go about choosing the one who’s right for you. By definition, a REALTOR®’s primary role is to bring buyers and sellers together to facilitate a sale. A REALTOR® is a licensed real estate professional who is a member of the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board and therefore has access to the Multiple Listing Service ® (MLS®) run by the Board. Both terms, REALTOR® and MLS® are trademarks owned by The Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA). Members of the local Board are also members of CREA and therefore are permitted to use these trademarks. When you work with a REALTOR® you can expect strict adherence to provincial law, as well as to a national Code of Ethics -- ensuring you’ll receive the highest level of service and integrity.

‘Open Houses’ are also a good way to meet REALTORS, especially if you’re interested in purchasing a home. You can also refer to real estate signs in your chosen area. If no name appears, call the phone number on the sign and ask to be referred to a REALTOR® in that firm. Some people mistakenly contact the real estate board for referral to a REALTOR®. A real estate board does not provide a referral service for REALTORS. The Board was created to provide services to its members. Still, the Board will confirm whether a real estate practitioner is a member, and therefore a REALTOR®. THE INTERVIEW When choosing a real estate professional, it’s a good idea to talk to two or three sales representatives from different companies to determine what types of information and experience they and their companies have to offer. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. If you’re selling your home, ask those you interview about the type of marketing plan they have in mind for your home. Obviously, you’ll want to learn of their reputation and reliability. You may also want to consider asking for references from buyers or sellers with whom the REALTOR® has worked.

Real estate professionals know their markets inside-out because they inspect open houses and research all listings. As a result, they have expertise in assessing what comparable homes are selling for within any given neighbourhood.

Further, since you’ll be working closely with a REALTOR® for weeks or possibly months, it’s a good idea to choose someone who listens to what you say, asks intelligent questions and shows a genuine interest in helping you.

HOW DO I FIND A REALTOR®?

PREPARATORY WORK

There are many ways to go about finding the REALTOR® who’s right for you. First, try consulting friends, relatives and neighbours to see if they can recommend someone. You may also want to try searching through local newspaper real estate advertisements.

Keep in mind that REALTORS cannot work independently of your input. You must be willing to do some preparatory work yourself and be prepared to dedicate a certain amount of time to working with the REALTOR® you have chosen.

The Vancouver Island Real Estate Board (VIREB) represents over 900 REALTORS and administers the Multiple Listing Service® system north of the Malahat to the northern-most reaches of the Island. This article was provided on behalf of VIREB REALTORS for the information and benefit of consumers. For more information, visit the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board’s website online at www.vireb.com or call 250-390-4212.

So, before you enlist the help of a REALTOR®, you should have a clear set of objectives in mind. Be honest and open in discussing your financial situation and, if you’re buying, carefully review the features you absolutely must have in a home, versus those features you’d merely like to have. LOYALTY IS A MUST It’s also important to remain loyal to the REALTOR® you’ve chosen if he or she has earned your trust. This person will be spending a lot of time and effort on your behalf, but won’t be paid until the transaction is completed. If you’re a buyer, getting involved with several REALTORS can create unnecessary and confusing duplication of effort. In fact, buyers who deal with several REALTORS may miss out on the high level of interest and comprehensive service one is entitled to expect by working closely with a single, competent REALTOR®. COOPERATION REALLY WORKS Remember, although you’ll be working with one REALTOR®, members of the Board cooperate extensively with each other to facilitate showings and sales for the benefit of other clients and customers. So, if you see a ‘For Sale’ sign on a house in which you’re interested, simply ask the REALTOR® you’re working with to arrange an appointment to view the home. This service is, in fact, what the Multiple Listing Service® system is all about -REALTORS cooperating with REALTORS to bring buyers and sellers together to achieve their mutual goals.

Buying a Home: What Can You Afford?

THE NEWS, Tuesday, July 5, 2011 •

C19

CHRISTIE ESTATES

Few people can buy a home for cash. Most of us have a difficult enough time saving the If you’re thinking about buying a home, a question that will undoubtedly weigh heavily on your mind is: “How much can I afford?” Obviously, affordability will play a major part in your decision making process. You want to be able to buy something you like, but you don’t want to feel stretched to the limit when it comes to meeting your financial obligations. Once you discover exactly what you can afford, you can be more realistic in your expectations. If you’re like most people, you lack the funds to make a purchase without seeking substantial help from a lending institution. In addition to coming up with a down payment, you’ll have to arrange a mortgage. Basically, there are two types of costs involved in buying a home: The amount of money you’ll need for the initial purchase -- consisting of the down payment plus additional costs such as legal fees, inspection fees and taxes; and The ongoing costs of paying back your mortgage, along with monthly operating costs for utilities, maintenance, insurance and annual property taxes.

Lenders use several factors in judging your ability to handle a mortgage, including your income, employment record and credit worthiness. However, one way you can estimate the price range you can afford is to look at the amount of money you have available for a down payment. The most common type of mortgage is a “conventional mortgage.” Under this type of mortgage, lenders will loan up to 75 percent of the appraised value of the property or purchase price, whichever is lower.

PRICED FROM

$299,900

The remaining 25 percent or more is the amount you will contribute as a down payment. So, if you plan to buy a home that has an appraised value of $100,000, a lender may loan you 75 per cent or $75,000 on a conventional mortgage when you contribute a down payment of $25,000.

. . .

5 ACRE PARCELS DRILLED WELLS 10 MINUTES TO QUALICUM BEACH

MULTIPLY BY FOUR If you plan to borrow funds through a conventional mortgage, simply multiply your down payment funds by four, to get an idea of the highest priced home you could buy. Then you will have to determine whether you have sufficient income to make the payments on your mortgage. Most lenders won’t let you take on debt that you can’t service. That’s why they’ll “qualify” you first, before agreeing to give you a mortgage. HIGH-RATIO MORTGAGE

PH:

250.248.7030

FREE LAND CLEARING & HOUSE EXCAVATION WITH LOT PURCHASE

If you don’t have a 25 per cent down payment, you may want to investigate a high-ratio mortgage. This type of mortgage is available for up to 95 per cent of a home’s appraised value or purchase price, whichever is lower, up to a maximum amount set by the government. Since you are borrowing more than 75 per cent, the government insists that the mortgage be insured against default and that you pay the cost of the insurance. That cost can range from one to three per cent of the mortgage amount, and is added to the mortgage principal. LENDERS’ CONSIDERATIONS To determine your eligibility, lenders will look at your monthly housing expenses. These include such items as mortgage payments, property taxes, and utility costs. These shouldn’t exceed approximately 30 percent of your monthly gross family income. This is called your “Gross Debt Service” ratio or GDS. (Some lenders will, in fact, go as high as 35 per cent, depending on a number of variables.)

Custom Drapery & Hardware

Lenders also use a second calculation in qualifying you for a mortgage. It’s called the “Total Debt Service” ratio or TDS. Generally speaking, no more than 40 percent of your gross family income may be used to cover mortgage payments, property taxes, utility costs, plus other fixed monthly payments. These other fixed costs are your ongoing commitments and can include auto, student or personal loans as well as charge accounts. Lenders will look at both your GDS and TDS amounts in calculating the size of the loan they will grant you for the home you wish to purchase. Once they’ve determined the amount of your monthly income available for mortgage payments, they’ll calculate the mortgage amount you can have. This is based on current interest rates charged by lenders. TRY LIVING ON YOUR NEW BUDGET FIRST Once you’ve calculated these factors, it’s a good idea to try living for a couple of months as if you were paying a mortgage, along with your other living expenses, to see just how well you manage. After all, it may be feasible on paper, but you may not be comfortable with this amount of your income being allocated towards a mortgage. Better to find out now, before you actually make a purchase.

Don’t be fooled by the exterior of this home, it is finished in drywall inside and is a very comfortable home to live in. Two or three bedrooms, two baths and a great kitchen area. The bonus here is a detached garage or workshop. You won’t find anything nicer in this price range. Pad fees of $395 per month are among the most reasonable around.

A short stroll to a walk on beach or the wonderful fishing at Nile Creek, this home is waiting for someone to do the finishing touches. New thermal windows in the great room, original oak floors, and a kitchen with a centre island. If you have skills to do the work yourself, there is a huge opportunity here to make this special.

D

You may readjust your spending habits in other areas for a while. However, if you’re comfortable with this test run, then it’s time to start looking for your new home.

O GO

Once you’ve calculated these factors, it’s a good idea to try living for a couple of months as if you were paying a mortgage, along with your other living expenses, to see just how well you manage. After all, it may be feasible on paper, but you may not be comfortable with this amount of your income being allocated towards a mortgage. Better to find out now, before you actually make a purchase.

• LS

TRY LIVING ON YOUR NEW BUDGET FIRST

IR

Once they’ve determined the amount of your monthly income available for mortgage payments, they’ll calculate the mortgage amount you can have. This is based on current interest rates charged by lenders.

Selling Homes For You

G GY ER

Lenders will look at both your GDS and TDS amounts in calculating the size of the loan they will grant you for the home you wish to purchase.

EN

Lenders also use a second calculation in qualifying you for a mortgage. It’s called the “Total Debt Service” ratio or TDS. Generally speaking, no more than 40 percent of your gross family income may be used to cover mortgage payments, property taxes, utility costs, plus other fixed monthly payments. These other fixed costs are your ongoing commitments and can include auto, student or personal loans as well as charge accounts.

D

To determine your eligibility, lenders will look at your monthly housing expenses. These include such items as mortgage payments, property taxes, and utility costs. These shouldn’t exceed approximately 30 percent of your monthly gross family income. This is called your “Gross Debt Service” ratio or GDS. (Some lenders will, in fact, go as high as 35 per cent, depending on a number of variables.)

O GO

LENDERS’ CONSIDERATIONS

• LS

Since you are borrowing more than 75 per cent, the government insists that the mortgage be insured against default and that you pay the cost of the insurance. That cost can range from one to three per cent of the mortgage amount, and is added to the mortgage principal.

IR

This type of mortgage is available for up to 95 per cent of a home’s appraised value or purchase price, whichever is lower, up to a maximum amount set by the government.

G GY ER

If you don’t have a 25 per cent down payment, you may want to investigate a high-ratio mortgage.

EN

HIGH-RATIO MORTGAGE

D

If you plan to borrow funds through a conventional mortgage, simply multiply your down payment funds by four, to get an idea of the highest priced home you could buy. Then you will have to determine whether you have sufficient income to make the payments on your mortgage. Most lenders won’t let you take on debt that you can’t service. That’s why they’ll “qualify” you first, before agreeing to give you a mortgage.

O GO

MULTIPLY BY FOUR

• LS

The remaining 25 percent or more is the amount you will contribute as a down payment. So, if you plan to buy a home that has an appraised value of $100,000, a lender may loan you 75 per cent or $75,000 on a conventional mortgage when you contribute a down payment of $25,000.

IR

The most common type of mortgage is a “conventional mortgage.” Under this type of mortgage, lenders will loan up to 75 percent of the appraised value of the property or purchase price, whichever is lower.

The Good Energy Girls

G GY ER

Lenders use several factors in judging your ability to handle a mortgage, including your income, employment record and credit worthiness. However, one way you can estimate the price range you can afford is to look at the amount of money you have available for a down payment.

EN

The ongoing costs of paying back your mortgage, along with monthly operating costs for utilities, maintenance, insurance and annual property taxes.

D

The amount of money you’ll need for the initial purchase -- consisting of the down payment plus additional costs such as legal fees, inspection fees and taxes; and

O GO

Basically, there are two types of costs involved in buying a home:

• LS

If you’re like most people, you lack the funds to make a purchase without seeking substantial help from a lending institution. In addition to coming up with a down payment, you’ll have to arrange a mortgage.

IR

Obviously, affordability will play a major part in your decision making process. You want to be able to buy something you like, but you don’t want to feel stretched to the limit when it comes to meeting your financial obligations. Once you discover exactly what you can afford, you can be more realistic in your expectations.

G GY ER

Few people can buy a home for cash. Most of us have a difficult enough time saving the If you’re thinking about buying a home, a question that will undoubtedly weigh heavily on your mind is: “How much can I afford?”
