Why call Ottawa home?

 

Being the Nation’s Capital holds much weight and gravitas which makes Ottawa an attractive place to live. However, when you really start delving into the details, you’ll find a city that goes far beyond Parliament Hill 24 Sussex Drive.

Yes, Ottawa’s rich history and prominence throughout the Nation is a source of pride, but its rich culture is really what makes it shine brightly. In fact, only a few years ago, Ottawa has rated the best place to live in Canada by Money Sense.

Ottawa’s History

 

The relationship Ottawa shares with Canada’s history of course begins at Parliament Hill.
 
Even for residents who walk by them every, these splendid Victorian Gothic sandstone structures offer inspiration, as they look over the Ottawa River. But anyone whose stepped foot in the nation’s capital will tell you the love affair starts with Rideau Canal. The 200 km stretch of water is one of Canada’s most picturesque sights. Initially, this waterway was meant for military strategy, coming to fruition in the War of 1812.

There are cruises and boat tours during the summer. And during the winter, the recreation gets kicked up several notches for festivals, skating, and the famous, delicious Beavertails.

 

Ottawa is lodged in the Southeastern side of Ontario on the south bank of the Ottawa River. It is bordered by Gatineau, Montreal in the north, Embrun and Limoges in the east, Kemptville and Chesterville in the south, and Carleton Place and Mississippi Mills in the west.

Mortgages Explained

A mortgage is a type of loan that is used to buy a home.  The repayment of the mortgage to the lender (bank) is typically made monthly or bi-weekly.  The payments are a blend of the interest due on the mortgage and the repayment of the principal on the loan. Learn more about mortgage

Down Payment

The down payment is the amount of money you will pay upfront to obtain a mortgage, this can range from 5% to 20% of the home's purchase price. Learn more about down payment

Interest Rate

An interest rate is charged with your mortgage since you are borrowing money from the lender. The smaller the amount you borrow, the lower your interest payments will be regardless of the rate of interest being charged.

Mortgage Term and Amortization Period

The mortgage term is the length of time you are locked into the mortgage contract (interest rate, payment frequency, etc).  Typically this ranges from 1 to 5 years.  The amortization period is the total length of time over which you plan to pay off your mortgage.  Typically this is 20 to 30 years.
