Great if

You have less than the 20% down payment needed for a conventional mortgage.

What’s an insured mortgage?

If you don’t have a 20% down payment for a conventional mortgage, you will need CMHC mortgage insurance, which is arranged through Vancity and pro-rated into your payment. With mortgage default insurance, you may be able to buy a home for as little as 5% of the first $500,000 of the purchase price and 10% of the remainder up to a maximum value of $1 million.

Insured mortgages must also meet the following criteria:

Key features.

Peace of mind and predictable budgeting

With a fixed-rate mortgage, you get the same interest rate for the entire term of your mortgage, so you can count on making the same payment every month.

Options to prepay

Get some repayment flexibility, with options to prepay up to 20% of your original balance once per mortgage year and increase payments by up to 20% once per mortgage year.

More to love about this mortgage.

Choice of payment frequency

Make payments weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, semi-monthly, accelerated weekly or accelerated bi-weekly. Paying more frequently will save you interest and shorten the time it takes to pay off your mortgage.

Bring this mortgage with you if you move

When you buy a new home, you can transfer this mortgage to your new property and keep the same terms and conditions, including the interest rate.

Ability to assign the mortgage to another party

Transfer your mortgage with the original rates and terms to someone else. If you’re selling your home, this can give you a market advantage if current rates are higher than when you first took on your mortgage.
