Advantages of Borrowing to Invest

  • Low interest rates – With ultra low interest rates, borrowers have more opportunity to benefit from anticipated higher returns on investments.
  • Tax-deductible – In Canada there are tax friendly benefits when you borrow to invest.
  • Accelerates wealth accumulation – Homeowners who may not have access to capital can take advantage of home equity and start investing today.
  • Portfolio diversification – Enables borrowers to have their eggs in more than one basket.

Disadvantages of Borrowing to Invest

  • Heightens losses – Since the money is borrowed, it may add extra risk if you are unable to make repayments for the loan for investment.
  • Reduces access to home equity – As a mortgage loan for investment leverages your home’s equity, borrowers will not have access to remaining equity until the mortgage loan is paid down.

Factors to Consider

There are many factors to consider when deciding if borrowing to invest mortgage will work as part of your overall financial strategy. These factors include, but are not limited to;

  • Type of investment
  • The risk tolerance of investment vehicle
  • Time horizon
  • Home Equity
  • Tax implications

There are several types of mortgage products borrowers can choose for borrowing to invest:

  • Mortgage Refinance: The lowest rate option is a mortgage refinance. Homeowners can tap into their home’s equity and quickly have access to cash for investment. As home equity increases in Toronto and cities across Ontario, along with low-interest rates, homeowners may want to consider this option.
  • Home Equity Line of Credit – The home equity line of credit or HELOC enables access to the home’s equity, just in a different way. Instead of a single (or lump sum) payment, a HELOC provides on-going access to certain amount of money, similar to a credit card, but with a much lower rate. The amount of the HELOC depends on the value of the home.

    The benefit of a line of credit is that payments are interest-only payments and homeowners can access it when needed. Downsides include variable interest rates and access to the total amount of the HELOC, which could lead to more unwanted mortgage debt. That being said, there are opportunities to lock in rates to protect monthly mortgage payments.
  • Second Mortgage – An alternative option for homeowners to access their home’s value to borrow for investments, without paying penalties. While interest rates for second mortgages tend to be higher, it may be a viable option for investing. Speak to a mortgage broker to understand the costs associated with a second mortgage.

Homeowners have choices and can consider options to leverage their home equity. Depending on the product, these options may have slightly higher interest rates.

Private Mortgage

When homeowners cannot qualify a mortgage refinance through a bank mortgage debt consolidation or a home equity line of credit (HELOC), private mortgages may be an alternative. Since private mortgage lenders will secure a mortgage debt consolidation against a home, the interest is usually lower than high interest debts like credit cards.

Private lenders usually charge a higher interest rate and fees than a bank, given the higher level of risk, however this option still reduces interest costs over time. This is because these lenders understand that situations exist such as quick turnaround for financing, bad credit, non-stated income and non-conventional properties.

Typically, private mortgages are shorter term products and only require the interest portion to be repaid. Private lenders evaluate risk differently than traditional lenders and will consider the borrower’s ability to repay that is beneficial to self-employed and people with bad credit. Private lenders can also provide debt

Reverse Mortgage

An option available to homeowners 55 and older are reverse mortgages that provide access to the home’s equity without having to sell. Reverse mortgages allow homeowners to borrow up to 55% of the value of the home. The concept of this mortgage is essentially a reverse loan that means there are no payments required. Payments will be made either in monthly payments or in a lump sum payment to homeowners. Homeowners will pay the reverse mortgage loan when they move, sell or the last borrower dies. Typically, the interest rate is higher, and there are fees additional associated with reverse mortgages.
