Check out this adorable listing from Monalei Dallmann at Maxwell Canyon Creek.

With a total household income of only $75,000 per year, and no other debt, you could own this amazing home!

Minimum down payment (5% of the purchase price) would be $17,950.  If you’re a first time home buyer, this down payment could come from your RRSP’s, from a gift from a family member or, if your house hold income is around $100,000/year, you could even borrow the down payment from a line of credit!

A variable rate mortgage at today’s interest rates would make for a minimum monthly payment of $1,580.

To rent this beautiful home, over 1625 square feet, with a double car garage, you’d be looking at about $1895/month.  Let’s do the math, if you rented this home for 5 years you would spend a total of $113,700 on rent.  100% of that money would go to padding your landlord’s pockets.

Think about this: if you purchased this home, your payments over those 5 years would total $94,805, but of those payments, $54,791 would go to REDUCING the mortgage!  Basically, what I’m tellin’ ya is that $54,000 would go RIGHT back into YOUR pocket!
