Keep The Condo…Pay Down The Mortgage…Lower Your Taxes

Jeff Evans

On the Globe and Mail website today is a segment in which a reader poses a question about her financial situation and a financial planner provides some advice.

In this segment, a 57 year old woman on disability with some savings, some equity in a condominium and a fairly manageable mortgage asks how to best go about her finances when it comes to retirement.

While not a high income earner, this woman would be paying taxes, and as noted by the financial planner who was giving the advice, taxes would be a concern to her in withdrawing the RRSP savings she has in place after she retires in order to supplement her income.

The missing link in providing her a more comfortable retirement that the financial planner appears to have overlooked is making her mortgage tax deductible and accumulating a wealth portfolio with the Tax Deductible Mortgage Plan (TDMP). She still has 8 years before she turns 65, in which time she could make significant headway in making her mortgage entirely tax deductible, and being able to have more assets at retirement to draw on for income. Many borrowers are able to decrease the time they take to pay off their mortgage by 50% or more. The plan is cost neutral also, so she would not have to pay any extra money to fund the plan.

If you are in a situation like this woman is, it is not too late to turn things around. If you have more time until retirement, then now is the time to start this safe, effective strategy to ensure your retirement is a well funded one.

This is a continuation of the article published here about the OSFI B20 morgage guidline changes for 2017.

If you are familiar with mortgage brokers at all (which you probably aren't) you would know that we also have alternative sources of lending for situations where a mortgage borrower will not qualify with a prime institution.  We have what we call "B" lenders, who have higher rates but more flexible lending criteria, and we have private lenders, which are individuals and corporations who can lend money on on anything that suits them.Read More

B20?  Is that some kind of vitamin?

It certainly sounds like a vitamin, but unfortunately, it is something else altogether.  The Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions is the regulator for all federal mortgage lending institutions.  They set the regulations for mortgage companies like banks to follow (or ignore).

The latest updates to the B20 mortgage regulations could bring some potentially very disrupting changes to the real estate market, especially if you are wanting to get a mortgage in Vancouver, or you are a mortgage broker in Vancouver. In summary:Read More
