You want to buy your first home, but making the down payment is just a giant hurdle. You’re not alone. One of the biggest barriers for prospective homeowners is the required 5% down payment. Finding attainable homes with this barrier is getting harder and harder. The city recognized this and started a program to help people buy their first house by covering part of the down payment.
The program is called the Attainable Homes Calgary Corporation, and its job is to help you buy your first house. You choose from a list of partnership developments and put forward $2000 as the down payment. The Program then covers the rest of the downpayment, no matter how big it may be.
You get to live in the home as long as you want. When you sell it, a portion of the appreciation goes back to the program. The longer you live there, the more you get to keep, up to 75%.
In an effort to streamline the process, Aarbo Fuldauer has partnered with two mortgage specialists at Attainable Homes partner CIBC to help you get your mortgage all lined up. Contact Matt Hiner at firstname.lastname@example.org or Khushdeep Dhaliwal at email@example.com call 403-714-1745.
