Buying a Vacation Home with Gotobrokers

Buying your vacation home with Gotobrokers has never been easier with the wide scope of lenders who are ready to mortgage your vacation property. The dream of owning a vacation home has become more obtainable with a minimum of 5% down thanks to the support of Segan, home mortgage insurance, creating programs that enable the lenders to offer more options.

Throughout the years we have seen a demand in vacation property ownership as Canadians are working more and looking for ways to enjoy their time away from work without having to fly to far-away locations. It all makes sense!

Having a conversation with Stephanie with Gotobrokers regarding how to get started and what type of property you are seeking will enable you to be best prepared, knowing what properties fall under the distinct categories will aid you in refining your search engines. As a license mortgage broker, we have direct access to the programs below:

Let’s get started with Type A and what is required in this property:

  • Year-round access
  • Fully winterized
  • Permanent heating, plumbing, and water
  • The foundation below frost line

Exploring Vacation Type B with 10% Down

  • Boat access
  • 3-piece bath, kitchen, bedroom, and living room
  • Water does not need to be potable but must be running
  • Toilet can be holding tank or portable
  • Concrete blocks or pilings
  • 850 square foot minimum

Vacation properties can vary greatly. They can be an 850 sq foot cabin to the house in a town that you often visit.  All these can be obtained with as little as the 5% down model. It is important to know that at Gotobrokers we can access the off-grid properties with a larger down payment of 50%.
