THE BUDGET
The budget is a crucial step towards establishing the limits for your home purchasing project. A careful evaluation of your current
finances, short-term and long-term financial capability, needs and priorities will save you a lot of stress and give you the peace
of mind to contemplate your purchase.

The first section will give you a clear picture of all the financial aspects related to the purchase of a property: downpayments,
start-up costs and budget calculation. We encourage you to fill in the calculation charts at the end of this section (pages 7 to 10)
in order to determine the overall budget for your project. Don’t hesitate to ask your Desjardins advisor for help, because that
is the key person to guide you through the entire process.

Once you finish your calculations, your Desjardins advisor can sit down with you, analyze the results and perhaps grant you
a preauthorized mortgage loan—an evaluation that determines the maximum financing amount you’re eligible for according
to your financial situation. This can speed up and facilitate negotiations with the seller or real estate broker.



THE DOWNPAYMENT: INVESTING IN YOUR PROJECT
When you get a mortgage loan, you are obligated under the Bank Act to invest a sum of money from your personal assets.
This is called the downpayment. The downpayment can come from liquid assets taken from your savings accounts, deposit
certificates, savings bonds, mutual funds or RRSPs. Cash donations, cashback incentives from lenders and personal loans are also
eligible under certain conditions. Moreover, if you own the land on which you’d like to build a home, its value can be used as
downpayment. Lastly, if you’re building your own home with the help of family and friends, your caisse could use part of the value
of this labour, called “sweat equity”, to reduce the amount needed for your downpayment.


HOW MUCH TO INVEST?
The bigger your downpayment, the less you’ll need to borrow. And the less interest you’ll pay! Generally, the minimum required
downpayment is 20%* of the property’s cost or market value, whichever is lower.

You can borrow even if you don’t have the minimum downpayment. If you need a mortgage worth more than 80% of your
property’s purchase price, you are legally required to have your loan insured by the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation
(CMHC) or Genworth Financial Canada (GFC). In this case, your downpayment could be 5 to 10% of your property’s value.

The mortgage insurance premium varies in relation to the downpayment and must be either paid at the time of purchase or
added to the loan amount. It represents from 0.5% to 2.9% of the amount of the mortgage loan—depending on the size
of your downpayment—is nonrefundable and is usually included in your mortgage payments to the caisse. To find out more about
the conditions specific to your mortgage insurance, consult your Desjardins advisor.




*For secondary residences that are inhabitable and accessible only 3 seasons per year, the minimum required is 35% of the value for a traditional loan (amortized over a maximum of 15 years).
 However, you can obtain a loan insured by Genworth Financial Canada with a downpayment of 10% to 35%.

                                                                                                                                                      HOMEBUYERS’ GUIDE                          3
LEVERAGING YOUR RRSP TO BUY A HOME
thanks to the government Homebuyers’ plan (HBp), you can use your RRSp (Registered Retirement Savings plan)
as a downpayment, reducing your mortgage payments, and mortgage insurance if any.

the HBp allows you to withdraw up to $25,000 from your RRSp—that’s $50,000 per couple—for the purchase of a new
or existing residence. You won’t pay any taxes on the amount1, and you’ll have 15 years to pay it back, interest-free.

to be eligible for the HBp, neither you nor your spouse can have been the owner of a residence during the year in which you
withdraw funds from your RRSp or over the four previous calendar years. also, to take advantage of the HBp more than once,
you must have fully reimbursed the previous HBp within the agreed time limit.


USING THE HBP WITHOUT RRSPS
Even if you don’t have an RRSp, you can take advantage of the HBp. Here’s how:

      • Borrow the amount corresponding to your maximum RRSP contribution from your Desjardins caisse
      • Deposit it into an RRSP for at least 90 days
      • Withdraw that non-taxable amount from your RRSP and apply it against the reimbursement of your Desjardins loan
      • Use your income tax refund as a downpayment for the acquisition of a residence
      • Then take up to 15 years to re-deposit the funds in your RRSP



      SYSTEMATIC SAVING TO ACCUMULATE MONEY
      Is the purchase of a home a long or medium-term project for you? Desjardins Systematic Savings is an excellent
      way to save up for a downpayment. At the intervals you request, a given amount is withdrawn from your Personal
      Chequing Account and deposited into your Systematic Savings Account. This way, you get the gain without the pain!




1If   the minimum annual payments are not made, the difference between the amount paid and the minimum amount required is taxable.

ANTICIPATE START-UP COSTS
You need to put aside the initial downpayment and at least $5,000 (this amount varies according to the value of your property)
to cover certain start-up costs. See below for examples.

INSPECTION FEES
Before buying an existing home, have it inspected by a specialist. a detailed report will tell you whether the house requires repairs
in the short or long term, and inform you about the existence of any detectable hidden defects.


APPRAISAL FEES
Your Desjardins caisse will need to know the market value of the property you wish to acquire. an expert—usually a chartered
appraiser—will perform an appraisal and issue report of your property’s market value.


NOTARY’S FEES 1
the preparation, signing and registering of various legal documents related to the purchase of your property calls for the expertise
of a notary, whose fees are your responsibility. It’s a good idea to ask for several estimates before making a decision, because
fees vary considerably from one notary to another. Your caisse can refer you to a notary, if you wish.

furthermore, upon closing the sale at the notary’s office, you’ll have to pay additional fees and adjustment costs. these include
property and school taxes, hydro and natural gas bills, and condominium charges (if applicable). the notary is responsible for
making these calculations based on the date of closing.


TRANSFER TAX 2 OR “WELCOME TAX”
when you take possession of your property, you are subject to a transfer tax, which is a sales tax based on a given percentage of your
property’s purchase price. this tax, which applies to all new owners and is payable to the municipality, is based on the purchase price
or municipal assessment. Here are the rates to calculate the welcome tax or transfer tax.



     QUéBEC FEES

                           0.5%                                         1%                                        1.5%

         and including $55,000               up to and including $250,000   up to and including $400,000   when the property in question

OTHER FEES
    • Home insurance premium for a new property (usually higher than when you’re renting)
    • Mortgage insurance premiums
    • Property survey fees (if required)
    • The sales tax (for new homes)

Don’t forget you’ll have moving and public utility hook-up costs. You also may want to decorate, buy new appliances and furnish
your house, patio or garden. It’s always better to look ahead, and perhaps consult with your advisor at the caisse as to whether
a line of credit would be a good idea.

Over the next few pages, you’ll be able to complete a useful exercise that will help you make the appropriate choices
that balance your desires and ability to pay.



    THE TWO GOLDEN RULES OF BORROWING
    • No more than 32%* of the gross household revenue should go to cover housing costs
    • No more than 40%* of the gross household revenue should go to paying off your debts



Once you’ve finished your calculations, your Desjardins advisor may grant you a preauthorized mortgage loan—your passport
to a new home.

with this loan, your advisor may also provide a guaranteed interest rate for a minimum of 90 days, as well as rapid service
upon loan approval. that way, sellers know you’re serious, and you can negotiate a price that fits your budget.

CHOOSInG YOUR HOME
now that you have made your calculations, you are finally at one of the most exciting stages of your home purchasing plan:
finding the dream home that matches your budget!

Before taking on this adventure, make sure to establish your priorities and be as precise as possible in determining your selection
criteria. Buying a home is always a question of choice. It’s up to you to identify which criteria are most important to you and
which you’re willing to sacrifice. at this stage, you should have an idea of how much you can spend on a home. now, there are
two other criteria to consider: location and type of home.



LOCATION
the location of your future residence is a factor that requires particular attention, especially in the big city. Certain choices could
considerably change your budget planning, habits and quality of life.

there’s a big difference between the city and the suburbs. the city offers a vast range of housing styles, developed public
transit and nearby entertainment such as cinemas, restaurants and theatres. the suburbs, on the other hand,
offer bigger properties and homes that are often newer and more affordable than in the city, but the higher cost of transportation
and its inherent impact on the environment must be considered.

perhaps the best way to understand this would be to walk around the neighbourhood you’re considering, and make a return trip
from the area to your workplace during rush hour.



  SIX QUESTIONS TO FIND THE IDEAL LOCATION
  • how long does it take you to get to work? how do you get to work?
  • What are the local services (daycares, schools, hospital, stores, parks)?
  • how much are the neighbouring homes worth? has their value gone up or down?
  • Is the area safe and quiet?




TYPE OF HOME
take the time to choose the home that best meets your taste and needs. there are many different types of homes,
each with different advantages and appropriate for different lifestyles. for example:

  • single-family home (bungalow, 2-storey)
     - privacy and freedom
     - proven investment
     - Generally more expensive




12     HOMEBUYERS’ GUIDE
  • semi-detached
    - less expensive than a single-family home (purchase, upkeep, energy, taxes)
    - Slightly less private than a single-family home
    - popular with young families

  • duplexes
    -   Greater cost and downpayment than a single-family home
    -   Rental income (tax implications)
    -   More time and resources needed for upkeep
    -   Rental unit expenses deductible
    -   lease management

  • townhouses
    - less expensive than a single-family home (purchase, upkeep, energy, taxes)
    - Slightly less private than a single-family home or semi-detached
    - popular with young families

  • condominiums
    -   a property wherein each unit belongs to a different owner
    -   Involves written agreements to manage common areas and for upkeep
    -   Condo fees
    -   less privacy
    -   lower taxes

  • undivided co-ownership
    -   a property wherein each owner owns an amount corresponding to a percentage of the entire property
    -   not covered by mortgage insurers
    -   Condo fees
    -   less privacy
    -   lower taxes



n.B. there are also relocatable and factory-built homes.



  SIX QUESTIONS TO FIND THE TYPE OF HOME FOR YOU
  • do you need a lot of privacy? do you mind sharing space with neighbours or renters?
  • are energy efficiency and quality of the environment (insulation, heating, air quality, ventilation,
    types of material, lighting etc.) important to you?
  • how much time will you have to keep up your home?
  • do you need large rooms?
  • do you want a large property?




                                                                                                 HOMEBUYERS’ GUIDE   13
A NEW OR EXISTING HOME?
COMPARE THE ADVANTAGES
   • New home
      - possibility to improve or choose the following: exterior siding, flooring, plumbing and electrical accessories
      - Built according to recent standards (building, electricity, energy efficiency)
      - Builder’s guarantee

   • Existing home
      -   Established area
      -   landscaped and fenced yard
      -   Can include certain additions (in-ground pool, basement, etc.)
      -   In case of major renovations, can be considered as a new home and GSt applies


WANT TO BUILD YOUR OWN HOME?
You’d like to build your own home to your taste in your dream location. You have the time and energy, you’re organized,
knowledgeable, have experience and contacts in residential construction, and have friends and family who can help out.
Inherently, building your own home is a huge project that demands careful planning. Below are the nine basic things to do
before starting to build:

   • Spell out your needs in terms of your preferences, lifestyle and financial capability
   • Get plans and specifications that meet building regulations drawn up by specialists
   • Get a construction permit from the city
   • Get an accident insurance policy
   • Draw up a detailed estimate of direct and indirect costs
   • Take the plans, specifications and construction permit to your caisse to obtain financing
   • Make a critical path schedule from the plans and specifications
   • Research and plan the main construction-inspection steps
   • Get written contracts with deadlines from material suppliers and subcontractors

Early on in your property search, it will become obvious that you can’t do everything yourself, even with the help of your loved ones.
with each and every step, make sure you have the competent support of a team of professionals. they are indispensable! Just look
for the list of addresses in the appendix, as it will be of great use to you during your search.



  YOUR DESJARDINS PERSONAL FINANCE ADVISOR
  This person is the pillar of your team! In addition to helping you choose the mortgage loan that best suits your
  borrowing profile, needs and situation, your advisor acts in your best interests and will guide and advise you
  throughout the entire property acquisition process.
  A Desjardins mortgage representative can meet you at your home, any day of the week.




THE BUILDING INSPECTOR
Before buying your home, make sure it passes the final test: the inspection. an engineer, building technician, architect or
chartered appraiser can do the job and provide a written inspection report, evaluating the foundations, roof, structural
elements, windows, insulation and plumbing, as well as the electrical, heating and ventilation systems, etc. a professional
inspection provides the following:

  • An expert opinion confirming that the asking price is reasonable with respect to the quality and value of the property
  • An evaluation of the cost of repairs
  • The detection of any hidden defects


THE LAND SURVEYOR
If you buy an existing home, the seller must provide the certificate of location. In the case of a new construction, the land
surveyor will prepare this certificate. the certificate of location is required by most mortgage lenders and contains the following
information:

  • A description of the lot and building
  • Identification of illegalities and irregularities (e.g. a fence encroaching on a neighbour’s property)
  • A list of any easements (e.g. rights-of-way)
  • A list of specific bylaws or regulations that may restrict a property owner’s rights




16     HOMEBUYERS’ GUIDE
THE NOTARY1
the role of the notary is to ensure the transaction is carried out according to the rules. to this end, the notary draws up the
mortgage deed and deed of conveyance.

the mortgage deed is an official document that specifies the mortgage loan conditions, along with the rights and obligations
of the borrower and the financial institution. the deed of conveyance is an official document—drafted from the purchase offer—
by which the seller transfers the property title to the buyer.

what’s more, the notary performs a title search and examines documents published by the Bureau de la publicité et des droits2,
and scrutinizes the documents supplied by the seller (tax receipts, location certificate, marriage contracts or divorce papers).

these procedures are intended to ensure that no one other than the seller has rights to the property, and that there is nothing
that could compromise the seller’s title to the property (e.g. previous mortgages, easements, pending probate settlements).

the notary has the mortgage deed signed by the buyer and the mortgage lender (financial institution) and publishes it at the
Bureau de la publicité et des droits2. lastly, the notary convenes the seller and buyer (and spouses if necessary) and has
the deed of conveyance signed.



THE REAL ESTATE BROKER
the real estate broker is a housing specialist who’s there to help you find the home that’s right for you. to be really effective, your
broker will need to know your budget and lifestyle, as well as the type of area you’re looking for. Before your first meeting,
you might want to set up a preauthorized mortgage loan to find out exactly how much you can borrow, based on your financial
situation and your budget (ask your financial advisor at your caisse). with this information the broker can quickly help you—
thanks to a familiarity with the market—find the home that meets your needs. the real estate broker will arrange appointments
and accompany you on your visits. this reassuring step will help you save a lot of time! finally, your broker will advise you during
negotiations and help you draft the purchase offer.



THE CONTRACTOR
when buying or building a new home, ask for the contractor’s references to assure you of their credibility and competence.
You might also want to see if the contractor offers new home guarantees. You can also ask to visit homes built by the contractor
of your choice. If you’re having a home built, the services of an architect can also be very useful.

now you’ve arrived at the crucial stage: choosing a mortgage loan.

not all borrowers are in the same financial situation. they are not all looking for the same type of loan. Some focus on interest
savings and prefer variable rates, while others are primarily interested in rate and payment stability. the following section will help
you make the right choice and discover the advantages of Desjardins mortgage loans.



KEY TERMS
PRINCIPAL: this is the sum you borrow. this amount is the difference between the purchase price of your property and your
downpayment.

INTEREST: the cost of your loan, paid regularly and expressed as a percentage, for as long as funds are advanced by your
caisse.

PAYMENTS: the amounts you must regularly pay against your loan. they consist of a portion of your principal and some of
the interest on your loan.

AMORTIZATION PERIOD: the number of years over which you have chosen to repay your loan. the most frequent periods
are 20 and 25 years, but it’s possible to have 30-year periods with mortgages insured by CMHC (Canada Mortgage and Housing
Corporation) or GfC (Genworth financial Canada). the longer the amortization period, the lower your payments, but the more
interest you pay.

TERM: the period during which your interest rate and regular loan payment remain unchanged if you have chosen a fixed-rate
loan. In the case of a variable-rate loan, the regular payment may remain unchanged, but the interest rate varies according to
market fluctuations. at the end of the term, a new term is negotiated with your caisse and new conditions apply for its duration.

PRIME RATE: annual interest rate periodically announced by the Bank of Canada as a reference point for determining
applicable interest rates for commercial loans, in Canadian dollars. this rate, which is granted by financial institutions to their best
clients, benefits those with the highest credit ratings.

FIXED RATE: Stays the same until the end of the term; can apply to an open or closed loan.

VARIABLE RATE: an interest rate that’s lower than the fixed rate, but varies according to the prime rate.

OPEN MORTGAGE: pay it back anytime, in full or in part, without penalty.

CLOSED MORTGAGE: Cannot be repaid in full before maturity. It’s possible to make accelerated payments of up to 15% of
the initial mortgage loan amount.

PENALTY: amount required by the lender for a partial or full repayment of the loan before maturity.




                                                                                                          HOMEBUYERS’ GUIDE               19
BUILD YOUR FUTURE ACCORDING TO YOUR BORROWING PROFILE
You are now ready to choose a mortgage loan that will enable you to finance your property. You have several options! after
asking you a few questions, our Desjardins advisors will be able to suggest the solution(s) that best fit your situation.

OUR MORTGAGE SOLUTIONS:

  Fixed-rate loans:

  • closed: this loan, which usually has a 5-year term (but can vary from 6 months to 10 years), protects you from interest rate
    hikes. the payments are generally higher.
  • Open: Ideal if your property is currently for sale or if you are waiting for an inflow of funds in the short term and are able to
    use those funds to make payments on your mortgage loan. It allows you to avoid paying a penalty. Its interest rate is higher
    than for the closed fixed-rate mortgage loan. the terms are 6 months or 1 year.


  Yearly rate resetter mortgage loan:

  • “5-in-1”: this very popular loan gives you the benefit of one of the best fixed rates on the market. the term is for 5 years,
    revised annually, and you benefit from a pre-arranged rate discount.


  Variable-rate mortgage loans:

  • protected: Combines the advantages of a variable rate with those of a fixed rate and fixed payments. You benefit from rate
    decreases, while being protected from major rate increases throughout the loan’s 5-year term.
  • reduced: the best interest rate guaranteed. the rate follows the rise and fall of the prime rate. Can be converted into a
    fixed rate at any time, without penalty. You also get a pre-arranged rate discount.
  • regular: Guarantees very competitive interest rates. the rate follows the rise and fall of the prime rate. this open loan with a
    1- or 2-year term is flexible too: it’s refundable at any time in whole or in part without penalty.


  NEW: Hybrid mortgages
  Can’t decide between a fixed-rate and a variable-rate loan? Desjardins can help! By combining several types of mortgage loans,
  you get the best of both worlds.

DESJARDINS MORTGAGE LOANS: ADVANTAGEOUS OPTIONS AND COVERAGE
     • The “Multiproject Option” allows you to re-borrow funds you have already paid on your mortgage loan as often as you
       like, without legal or other fees1. In addition to being advantageous for home upkeep or renovations, the Multiproject Option
       can also be used to purchase a car, pay tuition fees, go on a trip, take advantage of unused RRSp room, and more.
     • the “advance payment” allows you to repay up to 15% of your initial loan amount every year in one or more instalments,
       as an early payment and without penalty.
     • the “homeowner’s protection2—a Desjardins exclusive—limits the amount your mortgage payment can increase
       to the inflation rate, protecting you from major interest rate fluctuations. available to members renewing their Desjardins
       mortgage loans.
     • Life insurance and disability coverage
         Many consumers believe that if they already have salary insurance, they don’t have to worry about protecting their loans.
         However, it’s important to mention that in most cases, salary insurance covers only two-thirds of your current salary.
         when deciding whether or not to get disability coverage, consider your ability to maintain your mortgage payments if an
         accident or illness stopped you from working for a while. to see whether you have the financial leeway to continue paying
         for your house, take into consideration all your other financial obligations, such as groceries, clothing, taxes, hydro, your
         children’s education, getting back and forth from hospital, medicine, and other loans.
         Depending on the type of financing you chose, loan Insurance or loan Insurance - Versatile line of Credit could help you
         maintain your wiggle room by offering you life insurance and disability insurance coverage.
         – Life Insurance will pay off the insured balance of your loan in the event of your death. Your loved ones won’t be
           saddled with debt in the event of your death.
         – Disability insurance lets you maintain your standard of living in the event of an accident or illness by helping you pay
           back your loan, based on the percentage of insurance selected.
     • Home insurance
         when it’s time for home insurance2, the choices aren’t always obvious. Selecting insurance that adequately protects your
         home and property – and also includes public liability coverage – is an important decision.
         Desjardins General Insurance3 is different from other insurance companies because it offers you made-to-measure
         protection that lets you adapt your home insurance* to your reality.
         Our basic home insurance covers risks like civil liability and losses due to fire, theft, or vandalism, damage caused by wind
         or ice storms, and most accidental events that could damage your home or possessions, such as a vehicle hitting your
         house.
         Depending on your situation, you can also add optional insurance such as aboveground pool insurance, earthquake
         insurance, or even special insurance for specific property – for professional use, for instance. In addition, with Desjardins
         home insurance, you enjoy our Identity theft assistance free. A FEW TIPS FOR SAVING ON INTEREST PAYMENTS

     PAYING YOUR LOAN QUICKLY
     Choose the weekly payment option and pay a little more each week. You will enjoy substantial long-term savings
     and reduce the amortization period. Look at the following example:


     a $150,000 loan (25 years, 5-year term, at 5.29%1)

     Payment Method                                                                       Amount                              Amortization                         Interest Charges

     Monthly                                                                               $897.34                                     25 years                        $119,202.00

     Standard weekly                                                                       $206.37                                     25 years                        $118,281.00

     accelerated weekly (monthly divided by 4)                                             $224.36                                  21.3 years                          $98,142.16


     Conclusion: By choosing the accelerated weekly payment method instead of the monthly payment method, you
     reduce your amortization period by 3.7 years and save $21,059.84.

     • Increase your regular payments up to double the initial payment, once a year (or once a term if the term is less
       than one year).
     • If possible, pay up to 15% of the initial loan every year (or once a term if the term is less than one year).
     • Combine several mortgage loans and enjoy the best of both worlds. In addition, since interest rates on
       variable-rate products are very low, by adjusting your payments to match fixed-rate payment levels,
       you’ll pay down your mortgage even faster.




     THE DESJARDINS DIFFERENCE: THE MEMBER DIVIDEND
     Desjardins is more than a bank, and the Desjardins member dividend is the perfect example of how much more.
     Your caisse may pay you a member dividend at the end of its fiscal year, depending on your cooperative’s financial
     results. In a way, it’s an additional rate discount that no other financial institution offers you!




1   the annual percentage rate (apR) is equal to the posted interest rate, assuming that there are no additional charges applicable to the loan. Should there be
    such charges, the apR might be different. Rate in effect as at January 17, 2012.

You’ve just found the home of your dreams. It’s perfect. It is exactly what you were looking for and is within your budget.

So now you’re at the final, crucial stage—the purchase offer. Remember that the legal implications of buying a home
are significant. this section should help simplify the process. Before making your offer, make sure that you fully understand
all your commitments.



BE AWARE OF THE COMMITMENT INVOLVED
the purchase offer is a highly important document that is legally binding on the parties. It is a contract in which one person offers
to buy a property from another under certain conditions. Consequently, you should never sign a purchase offer hastily.

the purchase offer includes all the details needed to identify the property, along with the conditions for the transaction.
for example:

  • address and lot number
  • amount of the deposit
  • date of possession
  • distribution of taxes
  • length of time that the offer is valid (generally between 24 and 48 hours)
  • what is included in or excluded from the sales price (e.g. light fixtures, curtains, carpeting, household appliances)
  • approval of mortgage loan (amount, rate, term)
  • satisfactory inspection of premises by an expert
  • sale of your current house
  • any other condition(s) deemed appropriate

forms for presenting a purchase offer are available at bookstores or from your real estate agent.



KNOW WHEN AND HOW TO ACT
What happens once the offer is made? The seller can either accept or turn down your purchase offer. If turned down,
the seller can then make a counter-offer (on the date of occupancy, price etc.), which you can either accept or refuse. If you refuse
the counter-offer, you may make another counter-offer. when an offer is accepted by the seller, it constitutes an agreement to sell.

Once a purchase offer has been accepted, neither party can refuse to carry it out. Otherwise, the seller or buyer can be sued for
damages caused to the other party. the buyer could even lose the deposit.




                                                                                                         HOMEBUYERS’ GUIDE              25
THE BIG DAY: SIGNING THE CONTRACT
Upon concluding the sale, make sure that your notary or lawyer has all the necessary documents on hand (mortgage deed,
tax receipts, location certificate/building location survey). with your legal representative, go over the adjustment statement that
details the amount that has to be signed over to the seller in order to conclude the sale. Your notary will pay the seller
on your behalf with your funds, which you have arranged to make available through your Desjardins advisor.

the appended homeowner’s checklist will give you a list of things to do before you move.
