Summer is almost officially here, and the weather is getting hotter in Saskatoon! Can we expect the summer real estate market to stay hot as well?

Our Summer 2021 Real Estate Market Preview is here! We are going to review the stats from the past month, and share our predictions for the summer season, and what you need to know if you plan to buy or sell.

Mortgage Rules for Investment Properties

While there are many Canadian lenders that will finance rental properties, the Department of Finance tightened mortgage lending criteria as part of its rule changes introduced in 2016.

That included eliminating mortgage default insurance, for certain mortgage types, including those for investment properties with less than 5 units.

As a result, you need at least 20% down to...
