Want to Reduce your Monthly Payments?
Consider the Benefits of Owning a Suited Home.

Interested in Buying a Suited Home in Edmonton? You Should Be.

Are you looking for a new home in the Edmonton area? If so, have you considered a suite home? If you haven’t, you’re missing out on a lot of great opportunities. Adding a secondary suite to your brand new home will cost you less than you think, and you can take advantage of lowering your monthly payment.

In addition to lowering your payment and receiving significant cash savings buying a home with a legal suite has a whole bunch of other benefits. If you’ve ever wanted to be able to pay off your home fast, qualify for a larger mortgage, or lower your cost of living, then a suited home might be for you.

Keep reading to see all the benefits of having a secondary suite in your home, and get an example calculation of how much money you could save when buying a suited home in Edmonton.

Top 6 Reasons to own a Suited home

Cash Savings: If you are living in the property as your primary residence, you can help offset your Mortgage costs.  For example, if your mortgage payment is $2,230/ month and you have a tenant in the suite paying $1,250 your payment drops by almost $1,000/ month!  This is a direct cash savings in your pocket! In many cases your monthly payment will be significantly less than what you would pay if you were renting (see analysis below).

Mortgage Qualification Support:  Income from the secondary suite may help in your ability to qualify for your mortgage, and you may be able to afford a bigger home.

Keep the Family Close: If you living in the property and you wanted to have a space for a family member a suited home is a great way to create a separate living space keeping your family close. . . but not too close

Cost per Unit Savings: On a cost-per-unit basis Suited Homes have a lower price than buying two separate homes. So if you’ve ever considered purchasing an income property, this can be a great, more affordable option.

Budget Friendly Rental Option:  You will be providing a much needed service to people looking for a brand new high end rental property, for people on a budget.

Boost Your Resale Value:  Homes with revenue opportunities are sought after properties in the Edmonton real estate market.  The extra renovated/finished space and secondary income will make your home a ‘hot property’ when it comes time to sell.

Wondering just how much you could save every month with a suited home? Check out the calculations below to see how buying a home with a legal suite could save you nearly $1,000 from a typical monthly payment.
