Why use a Kelowna Mortgage Professional

There are hundreds of products available to consumers. Let me do the shopping for you. I can often get you a better rate than you at your own bank. Best of all (except in the most challenging of circumstances), my services are free to the client.

You can withdraw RRSP money “tax free” as part of your down payment…..

Each purchaser may borrow up to $20,000 from their RRSP to use as a down payment.

Available to homebuyers that have not owned in the last 5 years or never owned.

Repayment of the funds to your RRSP must be made within a 15-year period, 15 annual installments is the usual practice.

If the amount is not repaid in a year, the year’s repayment amount will be added to your income and taxed.


$15,000 is borrowed for a down payment on December 31, 2007. The first $1,000 becomes due but is not paid. The borrower must declare the $1,000 as income in 2008.
The home must be located in Canada and is used as your principle residence.

This program may be used with the CMHC/GE 5% First Time Buyers program.

The program has been extended indefinitely.
