Zero Down Program
What is zero down payment program?
According to the CMHC, you have to pay at least 5-10% of the total amount for a home if you want to buy a property. However, even that much can be a lot when it comes to certain houses and paying that amount of money at a single go may not be possible for some. But that shouldn't stop you from buying your dream home. Well, we have a solution for you. It will let you buy a new property at zero down payment or at a very low down payment. The Zero Down Payment program from Royal Canadian Realty is exactly what sounds like; initially, you won't have to pay a single penny when you are purchasing a property. Even if you do have to pay (depending on the property) the amount would be less than 5% of the total amount, and that's it. Our team will take care of the paperwork and you will be the owner of a brand new home.
You might be thinking, that this sounds too good to be true and there might be a catch. Well, we assure you, that there isn't any. Our zero down payment option is a type of under the flex down program where you may borrow all or a part of the down payment. It will also not affect the interest rate in any way. You will still get a reasonable interest rate through which you can easily make your mortgage re-payments without any thinking to such about monthly expenses and failing to pay the mortgage in time. Feel free to contact our team for more details on our zero down payment program, we look forward to hearing from you.
How to qualify for this program?
Before October 31st, 2012 there were some money lenders in Canada who would give you a cashback on the down payment. However, the downside of this is, you would have to pay a higher interest down the line for a 5-year term period. So, eventually, you would shell out more money. That option is now gone. As of April 1st, 2019, the CMHC has introduced the Flex Down plan where you can borrow the down payment part for your new property from a bank (it can be as a line of credit as well) or from a lender or from someone who is not related to the sale of the property. This way, you save some amount which you can use in any case of emergency.
You will have to fulfill some criteria to be eligible for this plan. Here's a list of guideline you can have a look which gives you a better understanding of what you need to do to be eligible for the zero down payment program.
Your credit score should be at least 650. This sums up to, not more than one month's late payment on any credit cards in the previous two years. It would also include now late payments on mortgages or loans or no bankruptcy filing in the previous 7 years.
You should have stable employment for at least 2 years in the same line of work and a minimum of 6 months of employment with a new company.
You should have 1-1.5% of the purchase price cash from your own resources for closing costs on the sale of a property. (This includes appraisal, property tax adjustments, legal fees etc.)
The price for the property for sale in question should be less than $600k and it should not be more than four times your gross annual taxable income.
You will have to be a Canadian or a permanent resident of Canada.

Who is eligible for this program?
The zero down payment program is an excellent option for anyone who has built an excellent credit score over the years but still has not managed to secure a minimum down payment for their new property. This can happen if you are managing the financial expenses for your entire family or maybe you have to use your saving for some emergency. We believe that shouldn't come in the way of you and your dream home. If you have an excellent credit score, have not been a default in paying your bills and loans, then you can apply for this plan.
Another way to qualify for this program is to leverage from Canadian Child Tax benefits and income from a non-residing immediate family member (who can be a co-signor). An immediate relative can also offer you the down payment as a gift, but it can't be used to prove you down payment. Additionally, if you have all the documents needed which proves your stable income, then you are good to go.
We understand that saving money for a home is not easy and you may never know when you will have to use that money for something else. This is where you can choose this plan and easily be the proud owner of a brand new property. Speak with our team at Royal Canadian Realty.
