Transitioning from renter to homeowner is one of the biggest decisions you’ll make throughout your lifetime. It can also be a stressful experience if you don’t plan ahead by building a budget and saving prior to embarking upon homeownership.

Budgeting is a core ingredient that helps alleviate the stress associated with money issues that can sometimes arise if you purchase a home without knowing all of the associated costs – including down payment, closing expenses, ongoing maintenance, taxes and utilities.

  1. If I have mortgage default insurance do I also need mortgage life insurance?

    Yes. Mortgage life insurance is a life insurance policy on a homeowner, which will allow your family or dependents to pay off the mortgage on the home should something tragic happen to you. Mortgage default insurance is something lenders require you to purchase to cover their own assets if you have less than a 20% down payment. Mortgage life insurance is meant to protect the family of a homeowner and not the mortgage lender itself.

Only 32% of all mortgage borrowers exercise their contractual right to make significant efforts to accelerate repayments, including taking one or more of the following actions in the past year:

  • 16% have voluntarily increased their monthly payments.
  • 15% have made a lump sum (balloon payment) contribution to their mortgage.
  • 6% have increased their payment frequency.
