Step 2:  Figure Out What Your Current Credit Score Is

For the most part, if you’re already paying rent, then you should already have this figured out.

However, if you don’t know what your current credit score is, either contact your local bank or download a free credit checking app like Credit Karma.

Otherwise, feel free to contact us for a free consultation if you want to know more about how your current credit score can affect your mortgage experience.

Step 4: Take Advantage of Local Offers and Resources

Since buying a home is pretty expensive, it is important for new homebuyers especially to know what their options are in case nothing goes according to plan.

Here in Canada, new homebuyers can take advantage of two types of benefits: The First Time Home Buyers Tax Credit benefit and the Home Buyers Plan. While the First Time Home Buyers Tax Credit benefit helps new buyers recover closing costs such as legal expenses and land transfer taxes, the Home Buyers Plan allows new homebuyers withdraw money from their Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs) tax-free using prescribed forms.

Regardless as to which option(s) you choose, it’s important that you understand how these benefits affect your mortgage buying experience.  So in addition to checking out our article, First Time Home Buyers Tax Credit, be sure that you also take advantage of our Sunlite Mortgage Calculators.
