Recently we were interviewed by CBC leading off the news in the business digest across Canada discussing how Canadians are getting into the market.
In summary, 4/10 Canadians get a substantial gift from parents, in the sum of $100,000 to $300,000 instead of co-signing. If a parent co-signs they have to qualify to service the debt, and that can be difficult when you have more than one child to assist. There are other solutions as well that parents can utilize, like reverse mortgages, if co-signing or the sale of an asset is not the best family plan for them at this time.
Multigenerational family planning to ensure the gift goes as far as it can, combine that with a budget and a consultation with one of our financial planning partners will help you gain clarity if that is an option you would like to explore with our help.
Here are the clips from CBC for you to listen to:
