First Time Home Buyer

Buying Your First Home Is Easy With Clover Mortgage!

Being a first time home buyer is exciting, but can also be intimidating because of all of the information and options available to choose from. It is important to do enough research before deciding what home to purchase so that as a first time home buyer, you get the best deal possible on a mortgage for your new home.  

Here are a few important things that a first time home buyer should consider:

As a first time home buyer you are allowed to put as little as 5% for a down payment. However, any home buyer that is providing less than 20% as a down payment on their home is required to obtain mortgage default insurance which is also known as CMHC Insurance. This serves as insurance for the lender in the event that the borrower can no longer make their monthly payments. The higher your down payment, the less your CMHC insurance payments will be.

If you have a retirement savings account you might be eligible for the RRSP Home Buyers’ Plan. It allows you to take up to 25,000 out of your RRSP tax-free to help finance the purchase of your first home.

The First Time Home Buyers’ Tax Credit gives first time buyers that chance to regain some of the costs they paid in the purchase. It mostly applies to closing costs such as legal fees and inspections.

In certain provinces like Ontario, British Columbia, or Prince Edward Island, home buyers can qualify to get a rebate on some of the Land Transfer Tax they paid. Torontonians are eligible to get a rebate on top of the provincial allowance if they are a first time home buyer.  

At Clover Mortgage, we know there are many great resources available to first time home buyers and we are determined to make sure you take advantage of them. Our trusted mortgage professionals will help you understand what you are eligible for and ensure that you get the most from your first home purchase.

Sandra F.

I was in debt and needed help getting back on track. My mortgage agent at Clover Mortgage helped me get approved for a home equity loan to consolidate all of my debt in one small monthly payment. Now I’m saving over $1,000 a month in interest and am left with less debt and more money in my pocket at the end of each month. Thank you Clover!

I’m a self employed independent contractor. I earn a decent income, but when I went to the bank to refinance my home, they denied my application telling me that I didn’t have enough “provable” income to qualify for refinancing my home. When I came to Clover I was almost out of hope. My Mortgage Agent at Clover was caring and professional, and help me get a great rate and flexible terms on full refinance. The whole process took less than 48 hours! I was impressed at how quickly and easily they were able to get me the money and home refinance I needed. Thank you Clover Mortgage, I’m recommending you to everyone I know!!

I had really bad credit, but really wanted to purchase a Condo. When I went to the bank they made me go through a lengthy application process that took weeks, and then they turned me down at the end of it all. When I found Clover Mortgage online, I called them and a friendly Mortgage Agent was able to help me get approved for a mortgage quickly and hassle-free. I got a good rate and now live in a home that I am comfortable in and am able to easily afford my monthly payments.

I definitely recommend Clover Mortgage to any new home buyer! They were very professional and helped my husband and I get mortgage for our new home at an even better rate than the bank was offering us. They also helped us get the mortgage with a smaller down-payment than the bank demanded from us. Since we did our mortgage with Clover, several of our friends and family members got their from them also, and Clover Mortgage has been able to help all of them, even the ones that were completely turned away and rejected by their banks.
