Buying Pre-Construction for investment, how to utilize your primary residence

Purchasing a pre- construction property is an excellent investment – and one that doesn’t have to break the bank. You can utilize the equity in your primary residence to buy an investment property, especially in today’s hot market.

How to utilize your primary residence

How can you go about utilizing your primary residence to purchase a pre-investment property? It’s simple, take this example. If you purchased a home five years ago in the Greater Toronto Area, it might have cost you $550,000. The house has appreciated significantly over the years, and after getting an appraisal from the bank – with the current hot housing market – it’s now worth $1.2 million dollars.

How is the additional equity helpful?

That gives you an extra $550,000 of equity that you have the potential to have access to! You can then go to the bank and ask them to re-mortgage your house. If you loan 70 per cent of the value of your home, you have access to $840,000. Depending on how much mortgage you already have will depend on how much money you can use.

Now, you have the ability to purchase an investment property

Investing in pre-construction is an excellent option because you don’t have to take out a mortgage until after the property has been developed! With the value of property continuously appreciating in the Greater Toronto Area specifically, it’s an excellent investment opportunity that is sure to be quite profitable in a few years. According to the government of Ontario’s population projections, the Greater Toronto Area specifically is supposed to experience the largest amount of growth. It is expected to increase by 2.9 million by 2046, which will only make the housing market more competitive, and therefore, more expensive. And, more profitable for you if you’ve invested in a pre-construction opportunity.
