CMHC offers 100% financing for investment properties

Oct. 28, 2007 | Market Update | By Aaron Rossetti

The Canadian Housing and Mortgage Corporation (CMHC) now allows investors in real estate mortgage insurance that covers "100-per-cent financing on one or two units and 90-per-cent financing for a third and fourth rental unit." The cost of this insurance is based on the loan amount, and prospective investors will still need to qualify for the loan. However, this change makes it considerably easier for investros, who up till last month, were required to place a 15 per cent down payment on investment properties.
