Federal Government Has Perks For First-Time Home Buyers

There's an excellent program from the Federal Government to help 1st-time buyers here in Toronto.

The best news for first time buyers is the size of the withdrawal amount that you can make from an RRSP when buying a house or a condominium.  

The federal budget has recently increased the withdrawal limit for first-time homebuyers using the Homebuyer's Plan to $25,000 per individual qualified 1st-time buyer.

That means that a qualifying couple could use up to $50,000 total from their RRSP, tax-free, towards their down payment or closing costs.

Amounts withdrawn under the HBP must be repaid over a 15-year period, starting the second year following the year of the withdrawal.

Using An RRSP Loan To Grow Your Down Payment

There’s also a little-known way to use an RRSP loan to dramatically increase the size of your down payment, especially if you have little down payment saved right now.
