Some FAQs for Newcomers
Can People on Work Permit Buy Property in Mississauga (Canada)?
If you buy immediately upon arriving in Canada, you will be hit by 15% Foreign Buyer Tax. However, this amount is reimbursed to you when you get your Permanent Residence (PR).
What is Better - to Rent or Buy a Property after becoming a Permanent Resident?
We highly recommend buying vs. renting, as renting is simply throwing away money (or paying off someone else's mortgage), which you will agree, mostly does not make prudent sense. We conduct First Time Buyer sessions for Permanent Residents of Canada looking to buy in 1-2 years of landing. This informative session will clear any questions or concerns that you may have about buying a home or a condo in Mississauga & area as a First Time Buyer. By far the most important factor is building your own real estate wealth as soon as possible.
Remember - the amount that you pay as rent on a monthly basis can cover the cost of your own mortgage on your own home or condo, depending on the down payment that you are able to put in at the time of buying.
Second important consideration is that Real estate market is doing very well in Canada & some property types are still affordable.
However, we do understand that circumstances might compel you to rent initially, before you can buy. This is fine and we can help even in this scenario.
What is the Rent Now - Buy Later Program
As part of this program we can assist you with finding a suitable property to rent for 1-2 years (max). Closer to the end of your lease term (or earlier depending on your readiness to purchase), we will start sending you for sale listings that closely match your needs. We will arrange for showings so that you can cherry pick the home or condo you would like to buy.
As a Buyer, when you Buy your home or condo with Team Kalia, you DO NOT pay us any fee or commission, as the Buyer Broker fee or commission is typically covered by the Seller in Canada.
