Interesting: Développements McGill Family Investment Program

I came across this great new program for young buyers in Old Montreal, specifically for students (and their parents) wanting to purchase a condo with low downpayment. Développements McGill created a new Family Investment Program that offers a fantastic purchase options. Here are the details:

“We have formed an partnership with the Royal Bank (RBC) to enable families with children aged over 18 studying or working in Montreal to enrich their family assets by buying a new condo in a booming neighbourhood with one of the highest value appreciation rates on the Island of Montreal,” said Stéphane Côté, President of DevMcGill.

The partnership lets DevMcGill offer first-time buyers very advantageous terms, including:

  • joint mortgage application by parents and children, if desired, making it easier to get a pre-approved loan;
  • the child’s name only on the property deed, qualifying the condo as a principal residence and exempting it from capital gains tax when it is resold;
  • very modest down payment (starting at 5% of the selling price);
  • guaranteed interest rate until construction is completed to shelter the buyer against any rate increases;
  • $1,000 rebate on notary’s fees when the transaction closes.
