How it works

Let’s say you find a fixer-upper that you love. It’s a steal at just $400,000 because some essential part of the home needs to be renovated. Maybe it will cost an extra $30,000 to update the kitchen and install draft-free windows, but all your savings are earmarked for your down payment and closing costs.

If you don’t have the extra money to tackle home improvements in advance, Purchase Plus Improvements (PPI) can fund your renovations upfront!

Start by securing a PPI-qualifying mortgage from Osoyoos Credit Union. You can qualify with a down payment of as little as 5% of the home’s purchase ($400,000) plus renovation costs ($30,000). In this case, that would be a down payment of $21,500.

Your renovation costs are disbursed once the work is complete, and repayment is included in your manageable, monthly mortgage payments!

Simply put, this is an easy, affordable and efficient way to turn that fixer upper into a head turner and get the home you want, sooner!
