First Home Buyers Worry About Finances Even With The Help of BOMAD

First home buyers

A new survey from the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) shows that first home buyers still worry about their finances even after receiving support from family for a down payment on a home. 18% of first time home buyers shared that their down payment included a gift from family. These individuals who’ve received help from family further said they felt less comfortable with their mortgage debt and were unsure of where to turn if ever in financial trouble.

The Bank of Mum and Dad are a large contributor to the property market and are a significant lender to first-time buyers. However, can BOMAD really make a difference when there’s a broken housing market and now a change in mortgage rules?
