The Benefits of Buying a Show Home
Buying a show home is a smart investment that gives you secure rental income while we lease your new home as a show home.
Contact us for more details!
Show homes are usually one of the first houses to be built… so when you move in, the area is pretty much complete.
Our professional design team has done all the work for you – reflecting the latest trends and making everything look just right.
If you’ve fallen in love with the whole look and feel of the home, you have the option of buying the furniture too!
We lease the home from you for the life of the show home including all utilities and maintenance.
We give you lots of advance notice of when the show home will be ready for possession.
When you are ready to sell, mentioning that your home was a show home in the listing usually means you get a better resale value over others.
Why Buy a Home with a Secondary Suite?
At Cantiro Homes, we have a wide variety of models to choose from that allow for legal secondary or basement suites with separate side entry options in several of the communities that we build in. You can learn more about secondary suites in our Investing 101 series here.
Secondary Suites can help you with your mortgage and financing. If the home you are looking to buy includes an income suite and you are able to arrange and provide a renter, lenders including the CMHC will actually include the future rent payments as income in calculating your debt servicing ratios. This makes qualifying for a mortgage easier and your home more affordable.
When your home includes an income suite, you’re enjoying the benefit of a renter paying a portion of your mortgage. When the time comes to sell, you will have paid down more of your mortgage than you would have if you were living in the space alone.
Many families have parents and grandparents live with them. Secondary suites allow for multi-generational living space for extended family members while still having the option for privacy. It’s also a great option for adult children to live at home while going to post-secondary school.
By using the space more efficiently, secondary suites allow more people to live on the same property—increasing population density and reducing urban sprawl.
The Benefits of Buying a Townhome
Whether you’re considering purchasing one or multiple townhomes to help diversify your investment portfolio, boost your rental income, and maximize your savings, Cantiro’s Townhomes are thoughtfully designed to cater to the modern urban lifestyle.
Our townhomes have modern designs and features that are attractive to potential tenants for a price that is substantially lower than that of a single family home, thus requiring a smaller down payment.
An investment townhouse provides an excellent source of passive income. Passive income is money earned without labour – you don’t have to turn up at work for it.
Whether you’re purchasing a fee-simple townhome or a condominium townhome, our townhomes are designed with low-maintenance landscaping, saving you time and money.
Our townhomes are located in great areas near amenities, transportation and schools – a huge plus to attract rental tenants.
