Ask Us About Investment Options

Cantiro Homes works with many individuals who use new homes as part of their investment portfolios. We are happy to discuss how our homes could help you build your investments.

Buying a Show Home is a Smart Investment

Cantiro Homes offers a unique investment opportunity that gives you secure rental income while we lease your new home as a show home.

Contact the sales team at the show home for more details.

Show Homes

Why buy a Show Home?

  • We Pay You
    We lease the home from you for the life of the show home including all utilities and maintenance.
  • Less Construction Nearby
    Show homes are usually one of the first house to be built… so when you move in, the area is pretty much complete.
  • Professionally Designed & Decorated
    Our professional design team has done all the work for you – reflecting the latest trends and making everything look just right.
  • Furniture Purchase Option
    If you’ve fallen in love with the whole look and feel of the home, you have the option of buying the furniture too!
  • Flexible Possession Dates
    We give you lots of advance notice of when the show home will be ready for possession.
  • Resale Value
    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.

Secondary/Basement Suites

A secondary suite (sometimes known as an in-law suite, garden suite or legal basement suite) is a separate dwelling located within a single-detached, semi-detached, or row house with its own living, cooking, and sleeping facilities.

A suite may be created through the development or conversion of a basement or other interior space within a house, accessed without passing through the principal (main) dwelling, such as through common interior space, or directly into the suite from outside.

The benefits of a secondary suite occur when it is rented out for additional income, helping to pay down the principle of the homeowner’s monthly mortgage payments.

  • Additional Rental Income—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.
  • Build Equity Faster—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.
  • Multi-Generational Living—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.
  • Sustainability—By using the space more efficiently, secondary suites allow more people to live on the same property—increasing population density and reducing urban sprawl.

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 virtually every community that we build in. 

You can learn more about secondary suites in our Investing 101 series here.


Check out our Cantiro Townhomes to see what we have to offer for investment options:

  • Prices of townhome are substantially lower than that of a single family home.
  • They have the potential to bring in great rental income.
  • The property manager takes care of landscaping and snow removal.
  • Our townhomes are located in great areas near amenities, transportation and schools – a huge plus to attract rental tenants.
  • Our townhomes have modern designs and features that are attractive to potential tenants for a great price.


Similar to Townhomes, duplexes offer many investment benefits including, if you live in one side and rent out the other:

  • You can use potential rental income to qualify for a mortgage.
  • Rental income lowers your monthly payments
  • You’re always close by to monitor the condition.
  • Today’s duplexes are specially designed to maximize space and minimize noise transfer – it’s hard to tell that you’re not in a detached home.

Multi-Unit or Multi-Lot Blocks

We can work with investor clients to find multiple units within communities.
