Key Real Estate Updates from the 2024 Federal Budget

Key Real Estate Updates from the 2024 Federal Budget

Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland recently announced the 2024 Federal Budget, which includes important changes to help people buy homes more easily and to increase rental housing options. Here’s a simple breakdown of what’s new:

Bigger Withdrawals for Home Buyers

The government plans to increase the amount of money people can take out from their retirement savings to buy their first home or a home for someone with a disability. This means individuals can withdraw up to $60,000 from their Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs), up from the previous limit of $35,000. For couples, this means they can use up to $120,000 together. This change is designed to make it easier for you to afford a home.
