We recently sent out pamphlets in the Vancouver area, targetting renters and explaining how they could get into the ultra-competitive Vancouver market.  The premise is that with the low interest rates, and 5% down, your mortgage payments and maintenance fees are lower, or similar, to what you pay in rent per month. For example:

 

The average monthly rental in Vancouver is $1807 per month.

 

Over 200 properties have sold in Vancouver for under $475K, which is important because it allows first time home-buyers to avoid the transfer tax.

 

Interest rates for today, according to Macklem Mortgages are $3.67/100,000. Therefore, for a $470K condo, you would need a 5% down payment of $23,500 and your mortgage payment would be $1638.66.

 

Of course there are other things to consider, such as taxes, maintenance fees etc. but the point is that you dont have to be a millionnaire to own your own home in Vancouver. 

 

We thought we were pretty smart when we sent out these brochures, and I think we've been validated with a recent Vancouver buzz campaign #dontneed1million to own in Vancouver.

 

Happy hunting!
