RRSP Home Buyers Plan
The Home Buyer’s Plan (HBP) is a government program that allows home buyers to withdraw up to $25,000 from their Registered Retirement Saving’s Plan (RRSP) to put towards buying or building a new home.
Before you can withdraw funds, you have to be entered into a written agreement that specifies whether you will be buying or building your new home. You also must occupy this space no later than a year after buying or building this new home.
To take advantage of this program you have to be considered a first-time buyer. You are not a first-time home buyer if you (or you and your spouse) has owned a home which you have occupied as your principal place of residence in the past 5 years.
Once those conditions are met each person can withdraw up to $25,000 tax-free from their RRSP for a new home. Couples, including common-law, can withdraw up to $50,000. You will not pay income tax on these amounts as long as these funds will be repaid into an RRSP in the future.
Existing homeowners can also use this program to purchase an accessible home or a home for a disabled dependent relative. The intended individual must qualify for the Disability Tax Credit (DTC) and this home must be more accessible or better suited to the care of this individual.

"After interviewing a few other agents, and then sitting with Aaron, we knew he was the one. His knowledge of residential construction and finishing's, along with his confident professionalism, set him apart from the others. After drawing out a sales plan, we executed everything as scheduled and accepted an offer far superseding our expectations, $350,000 over asking!! We highly recommend Aaron when it comes to real estate!"-Allan & Lisa

Aaron did a wonderful job of making my husband and I feel confident in the purchase of our first home. He was very professional and responsive during the whole process and ensured that we felt comfortable each step of the way. Purchasing a home during a pandemic can be a daunting task but with his vast knowledge and remarkable attention to detail we found a home that suited our needs perfectly. ~Patrick & Felicia

If you are in search of an honest, reliable, and knowledgeable realtor, look no further because Aaron is your guy! He helped me purchase my home through the most difficult housing market during the pandemic. During when home inspections were essentially non-existent, I could trust Aaron to guide me in the right direction whether or not the property was a wise choice or not! He is very knowledgeable in conditions of the home, electrical, plumbing, proper grading, etc, etc.! He was so patient and reassuring during an immensely frustrating time in an over inflated market. Aaron found us our forever home and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home! Kristin West-First-Time Home Buyer
