How much downpayment do I need?

Leave a comment

If you are looking to purchase a home in Canada, the minimum downpayment requirement to purchase is 5 percent up to a purchase price of $500,000. For purchases over $500,000 but less than $1,000,000 the mortgage lending requirements changed in 2016. You are now required to have a minimum downpayment of 5 percent for the first $500,000 and 10 percent for the balance amount.

Here’s how it all works…
