WHAT IS THE FIRST-TIME HOME BUYER INCENTIVE (FTHBI)?
This incentive was set in motion on the 2nd of September 2019. It was created with the intention of making monthly mortgage costs for first-time home buyers, more manageable. By this, a qualifying individual will have the government buying equity in their home. This will allow Canadians to enjoy home ownership in a realistic and responsible way, with reduced mortgages and lower costs per month. Finally, an affordable option for a first-time home buyer.
MORE ABOUT THE FIRST-TIME HOME BUYER INCENTIVE (FTHBI)
There has been quite a bit of anticipation and excitement around the announcement of the FTHBI program. The federal budget only mentioned the start of this program in March, so it’s still early days for the mortgage community. This incentive officially launched on the 2nd of September this year. It’s an exciting time!
You’re probably wondering what exactly this FTHBI means, and whether or not it’s something that could benefit you, or someone you know who would love to own their first home. We’d like to begin by saying that there are always pros and cons. This program being no different, but it’s important to look on the bright side and to make the most of a new opportunity – especially if it can reduce you and your family’s financial burdens. This incentive will benefit many families across Canada, and we hope it will serve as a powerful aid to equip residents with the empowering ability to own their own home.

Through this process, the government will get a share of any gains from the appreciation of the property, and with the same breath, will also share in losses should the value of the property go down. The government has put aside $1.25 billion over three years for this incentive.
Through the FTHBI, the Government of Canada will offer those eligible the following options:
5% or 10% can be paid towards a first-time buyer’s purchase of a new construction
5% can be paid towards a first-time buyer’s purchase of a re-sale home

The property must be based in Canada and needs to be suitable and available to be occupied on a full-time basis throughout the year.

My wife and I have nothing but positive things to say about our experiences with Jacques and his team. From the moment we connected with them we have felt that our best interests were being taken care of. Every step of the way we have received multiple options and explanations for every decision we have had to make. We have recommended them to anyone and everyone and we look forward to using their expertise in the future as we navigate through the ever changing housing market. Thank you Jacques & team, we truly appreciate your services.
The Mortgage Allies team is an absolute pleasure to work with and is excellent at what they do. Jacques truly works in the best interest of every client. He takes the time to understand your individual needs and secure a mortgage that is the best overall fit for you. He has a deep understanding of mortgages and offers so much more value than any other brokerage or bank today. The process is clear and transparent from day one and you will learn a lot about mortgages along the way. I would highly recommend Mortgage Allies for your mortgage needs.

Jacques and his team have been phenomenal throughout our home-buying process. We started working with the Mortgage Allies team a year prior to purchasing the home we will be closing on in a few weeks. As first-time buyers, Jacques and his team took the time to explain the mortgage process in a way that actually made sense, and was quick to answer any questions we had along the way. They helped to determine what we could afford and what we could do to improve our finances, walked us through the necessary steps, and also provided useful information on how we could become mortgage-free faster. Never once did we feel in over our head, or that our goal was unattainable. Thank you!!

Dear Jacques, Will and I have just finished paying off our mortgage on our property on Estoril Road in Mississauga. I would be remiss if I didn't take the time to thank you, Jacques, and your colleagues for your guidance and knowledge in assisting us to make this day finally arrive!. I am convinced that by retaining your company [from the referral from our Real Estate Agent], we saved money and time. The transition from our condo mortgage to our house mortgage was seamless also. Again thank you! Donald G. Scott / William Tang

Very impressed by the expert advice and amazing customer service provided by the Mortgage Allies team. Answered every question for me and helped every step of the way throughout the process. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a reliable and professional mortgage broker. Thank you again!
I had the pleasure of working with Peter Saunders, after having visited a couple of the big 5 banks, and being unsatisfied with their service. Peter and the team at MA was knowledgeable, courteous, and aligned with my goals. I was never made to wait, and Peter came prepared with a comprehensive summary outlining the opportunities available to me. At that time circumstances were that I chose not to move on with a purchase, but I've kept in contact with MA ever since. If you're tired banks who are only interested in up-selling you in other services, and who aren't aligned with your goals, then I couldn't recommend Mortgage Allies more strongly.

He did it again! Second time was just as good as the first. Thank you Jacques and team.
This guy is incredible! He can keep it light with simple numbers, and he can go deeper if you want and show you where all of his numbers are coming from. I never felt uncomfortable to ask anything. He is really customer focused and he helped set us up to have more money in our pockets and a house to live in. I will definitely be recommending this broker to my friends and family, as he is operating in a class above the rest.

Jacques and his team are amazing! If you need a mortgage they should be your first call.
The thought of home ownership in Canada initially seemed impossible. The Mortgage Allies team simplified everything! Firstly, Not only was I able to buy a home at a great mortgage interest rate, but was given many benefits in the mortgage. As I was shown these benefits are often overlooked by home owners who are only focused on Low interest rates. It's all in the details that make for a great mortgage. Secondly, I was given 3 plans as to how I can become mortgage free fast! Life is ever changing and I thank the Mortgage Allies team for the Super support! It's a Good Life for sure
