Planning to retire with a mortgage? You’re not alone

C

anadians won’t be retiring their mortgage debt anytime soon, according to a recent survey by the Bank of Montreal. Data shows that more than half (51%) of Canadian homeowners plan to carry their mortgage into their retirement. But there’s more to this figure than meets the eye, says Phil Soper, chief executive of Royal LePage Real Estate Services. Soper argues that changing demographics and approaches to money management are what’s causing this increase, rather than just increased consumer debt. SENIORS AND HOUSING TRENDS Retirement used to be all about downsizing, but that’s hardly the case any longer. A new trend, one which was not considered by the industry before, sees seniors moving into more expensive upscale homes following their retirement. And that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. “People are living longer, working longer and making real estate plans longer or further into their lives,” explained Soper in a recent Financial Post article. “People are more sophisticated in their approach to personal finance today than

the previous generation.” On the flip side, low Canadian mortgage rates could be causing some seniors to take unnecessary risks in regards to their finances. With mortgage rates at an all-time low, many elderly Canadians may be miscalculating the overall cost of their new home purchase. “Low interest rates are acting like a double-edged sword causing people to take on more debt than they would have in the past,” explains Robb Nelson, CEO of FamilyLending.ca. “As such, people could end up working longer and building less equity into their home.” SHOULD YOU CARRY DEBT INTO RETIREMENT? Carrying debt into retirement can be a threat to financial security, especially if the load is extremely large. According to Tino Di Vito, head of the BMO Retirement Institute, Canadians need about 70% of their pre-retirement income to maintain the same kind of lifestyle they’re used to. And that’s assuming that larger expenses, such as a mortgage, are already taken care of.

As housing prices continue to rise in hot markets like Toronto and Vancouver, it’s hard to imagine how some seniors will be able to survive and manage a mortgage. According to the Canadian Real Estate Association, the average home price is close to $373,000; in Vancouver, the average sale price in April topped $735,000. Not surprisingly, almost 60% of B.C. homeowners are expected to carry their mortgage debt into retirement.

as quickly as possible is always the best option, but it’s not the only one. Provided your mortgage relates to everything else in your financial plan, you shouldn’t run into any major setbacks. Consider the following: Putting money into your RRSP makes sense when you have significant income and your tax rate is higher than it will be in retirement. The money that’s generated in your tax return can then be applied to your mortgage as a lump sum. When it comes to UNDERSTANDING managing your mortYOUR ASSET gage during retirement, The easiest way to planning is key. For more manage mortgage debt as information on current mortyou edge into retirement is to gage rates, or to discuss your reaccelerate your payments.

Why should you get a home inspection? Part 2 – Continued from last week:

U

pon completion of the inspection a good inspector will sit down with the client and go through everything they have examined and explain in whatever detail is required to ensure that the client completely understands. Remember the opening of this little article. The objective of the inspection is to demonstrate that the house is both safe and comfortable and here is where you get your answers. It is most important that the client be practical however. No home, even a brand new one, is perfect. All homes are going to have issues, blemishes, defects and such. Once the inspector has demonstrated that the home is safe and comfortable it is up to the client to make that house their home and this is achieved by correcting the little things and adding their own colors, furniture, paintings, family pictures and more. If however something major is uncovered this is not a show stopper generally either. This is when your agent goes back to work for you. They work with the sellers’ agent to ensure that the issue is corrected or that a price adjustment is negotiated to cover the cost of the new owner brining things back into order. No dream ever comes without a little work. After that the inspector will provide you with either a hard copy of the report at the site or will have one sent to you electronically generally within 24 hours. This is your document to

HOME INSPECTION from page 9

Now that the inspection is over, what next? client to understand that an inspection is not an unlimited warranty. The inspection has a date on it and the report is a summary of the condition of the residence at that time. So, if you do your homework in choosing an inspector you have nothing to worry about. SOME NEW TRENDS Today many real estate agents and homeowners are favouring having a home inspection completed before the house is listed. This serves two very important purposes. First, you have advanced warning of any deficiencies and can address them before this might jeopardize your sale. Second, a prospective buyer coming to see the home can read the inspection and see written statements attesting to you having had the deficiencies corrected before you listed the home. This does a lot to confirm in the prospective buyers mind that not only are you serious about selling your home but that you have taken the time and spent the money to ensure that it is indeed both safe and comfortable for the new

buyer. This generally has a positive impact on the final selling price of the home so your investment will be returned and possibly many times over. Another positive of conducting business this way is that it eliminates any pre final negotiation jitters. Both you and your agent and the prospective buyer and their agent know that there are no hidden surprises. There are no unknown last minute issues and you should capitalize with the best price. Some buyers may still want to conduct their own inspection but you can at least sleep at night while this formality is conducted knowing that you have nothing to worry about.

not tasked with reading a longer article but can quickly reference the important points. So here they are. 1. Is the inspector certified and with whom? 2. Is the inspector experienced and can they provide you with references? 3. What specific training has the inspector taken to qualify for this job? 4. Does the inspector carry Errors and Omissions Insurance and General Liability Insurance? 5. What professional inspection organizations is the inspector a member of? 6. How long do they suggest the inspection will take? 7. Can they provide you with a quick format WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW for the inspection? ABOUT YOUR PROSPECTIVE 8. What type of inspection report do they proINSPECTOR? vide and when will you have it in hand? I’ve already suggested some things you 9. How much does the inspection cost? should be asking your inspector before asking them to represent you, but it’s best to provide a If you ask all of the above, and follow up with quick summary so when the time comes you are some phone calls confirming the information

provided, you can be comfortable with your final decision and make your next home buying experience, or your first, a fun and stress free process. I mean, there’s plenty of time to stress when the packing starts. RIGHT!!! Good luck with your next new home! Provided by Frank Polsinello, Re/Max Omega Realty.
