Home Deposits 101: Can You Borrow Your House Deposit?

home deposits 101 can you borrow your house deposit
When buying a home in Canada, the house deposit is usually between 5-10% of the purchase price of the property. Considering the current housing market, this is a significant amount of money. So, what happens if you can’t access the cash in time? Can you borrow the money for a deposit?

While some people may decide to take out a loan or borrow money from friends and family, these routes aren’t for everyone. A Deposit Guarantee can help resolve this issue!

Canadians now have the option of using a Deposit Guarantee, also known as a deposit guarantee, as a cash equivalent alternative to a house deposit.

House Deposit Guarantees can be significantly cheaper than traditional loans, credit cards, or asset liquidation, making it an increasingly popular option for house hunting Canadians.

Although Deposit Guarantees have been widely used in Australia, US, and European real estate for decades, it’s only recently been introduced to the Canadian market via Home Deposits Now.

So, am I borrowing the money from Home Deposits Now?

No, our Deposit Guarantee isn’t a loan, it’s a promise that you are going to pay the deposit upon closing. If you can verify that you have sufficient home equity or liquid investment, we are willing to guarantee that you will provide the deposit amount at closing.

Home Deposits Now is inserted into your offer instead of a cash deposit and finally at closing simply pay the full purchase price.

How much will a Deposit Guarantee cover?

Home Deposits Now Guarantees are available from $10,000 to $100,000 for up to 9 months - and up to 10% of the home purchase price.
