CMHC Premiums Set to Increase March 17, 2017

If you are thinking about buying in the near furture and plan to have less then 20% down we recommend giving us a call.  


It will cost more for a CMHC insured mortgage starting March 17, 2017. Now is a great time to connect with any clients sitting on the fence to help save the extra costs before the increase takes effect.


To give you an example, for clients looking to use the new BC Home loan for part of their down payment, the premium is jumping from 3.85% to 4.50%. For a purchase of 500k the mortgage looks like this today:

$500,000 - 5% ($25,000)= $475,000 + 3.85% ($18,287.50) = $493,287.50


On March 17 it looks like this:

$500,000 -5% ($25,000)= $475,000 + 4.50% ($21,375)= $496,375
