The right home loan

This is where your experience in previously purchasing a home will come in handy. If you have been paying your present mortgage for a few years or more, you will have noticed variable interest rates fluctuate over time, plus the opportunities that both variable and fixed interest rates provide. The temptation to change from fixed to variable interest rates, or vice versa, will arise. Here are just a few factors worth considering when looking to buy your second home:

  • What is your purpose for making a new property purchase?
  • Are your budget and cash flow sufficient to cover all costs?
  • Is it going to be an investment property?
  • What is your preferred loan type and loan structure?
  • How will your equity be used?

Preparing you to buy

Your Karista Mortgage expert will outline all your options. We have the same purchasing power as Canada’s biggest banks, allowing you to choose a fixed rate, variable rate or another loan option. Our loan incentives and rewards can’t be beaten, including bridging loan products that are perfect for second home buyers.

If you have found your perfect second home and are ready to snap it up, but are waiting to sell your current home, a bridge loan is an ideal solution. Bridge loans are interest-only loans, backed by the financial collateral of both your current and future home. It’s worth understanding that you will be paying the interest portion of the two loans until your current home sells, so budgeting will be important.
