CMHC Mortgage Premium Calculator

1. What is CMHC Premium Calculator?

 The CMHC Premium Calculator is a useful tool for homeowners and potential homebuyers in Canada. It helps calculate the mortgage insurance premium that is required by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) when obtaining a high-ratio mortgage. Borrowers who cannot provide a down payment of at least 20% of the purchase price are considered at high risk of default and thus, mortgage lenders will require insurance to protect their interest should a buyer default.

 

 2. How does it work?

 The CMHC Premium Calculator takes into account various factors such as the purchase price of the property, the down payment amount, and the amortization period. By inputting these details, along with some additional information, the calculator provides an estimate of the mortgage insurance premium that will be required.

 

 3. Why is it important?

 An insured mortgage is mandatory for homebuyers who have a down payment of less than 20% of the purchase price. The premium is an additional cost that buyers need to factor into their closing costs and will added to the mortgage loan. It protects the lender in case the borrower defaults on the loan. By using the CMHC Premium Calculator, homeowners and potential buyers can  get a clear understanding of how much this premium will add to their monthly payments. In BC, there's no Provincial Sales Tax on CMHC mortgage insurance.

 

 4. How to use the CMHC Premium Calculator?

 Using the CMHC Premium Calculator is easy. Simply input the required information show, such as the purchase price, down payment amount, and other relevant details. The calculator will then provide an estimate of the mortgage insurance premium.

 

 5. Benefits of using the CMHC Premium Calculator

 Using the CMHC Premium Calculator allows homeowners and potential buyers to plan their budget more effectively by knowing the exact cost of the mortgage insurance premium. It also helps them compare different down payment scenarios and understand how it affects the premium and monthly mortgage payments in any housing market.

 

6. Mortgage Default Insurance providers

Mortgage default insurance is provided by private companies such as Sagen (formerly Genworth Canada) and Canada Guaranty (formerly AIG Canada), as well as the Canadian government through the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC).

 

7. Additional resources and support

 The CMHC website and mobile app provide additional resources and support for homeowners and potential buyers. These resources include information on mortgage insurance, down payment options, and other useful tools and calculators. Users can also contact CMHC directly for personalized advice and assistance.

 

 In conclusion, the CMHC Premium Calculator is a valuable tool for anyone looking to purchase a home in Canada. By using this calculator, individuals can better understand their mortgage default insurance premium and make better informed decisions about their homebuying journey.
