And who wouldn’t be? Read on.
Through the use of a specialized mortgage strategy called the Smith Maneuver, you can achieve all of these goals. And you can do them all together! – taux hypothécaire
The strategy is named for a British Colombia financial planner, Fraser Smith. He developed this interesting home loan strategy a few years ago (see the press release). I had the good fortune to hear Fraser give a speech about it at a recent conference in Toronto, where I was one of three mortgage consultants from Quebec.
This strategy, formed for a mortgage product that can expressly use it, allows the mortgage holder to make an investment or pay business expenses and, over time, achieve a tax benefit from the related interest expenses. There are a number of ways in which this works, but if it is approached in the right manner, you can limit your risk while increasing how efficiently the strategy works for you. There are many parts to this strategy, so it is best that you phone and discuss your individual circumstances and how they can be addressed using this strategy. We work with financial planners who can analyze your financial needs and put the right package together for you – taux hypothécaire.
