First-time homebuyers have something to look forward to in the new 2019 federal budget: Canada's housing agency is offering to pitch in towards the purchase price.


Exact details of how this "shared equity mortgage” will work still need to be hashed out by the government and are expected to be released in the fall.


In the meantime, this is what we know so far about the new incentive:


The First Time Home Buyer Incentive is a measure to help with housing affordability and lower the amount of money Canadians pay.


Under the program, the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) contributes up to 10 per cent of the purchase price of a home. This brings down the mortgage load for borrowers.


In exchange, the CMHC gets a 10 per cent stake in the house — which is why it’s described as a “"shared equity mortgage."


For example, let’s say a homebuyer is purchasing a $400,000 property. Under both the old and the new rules, they need at least a $20,000 down payment — five per cent of the price.


So that means they would usually need to borrow the remaining $380,000 as a mortgage.


Under the new program, the CMHC would contribute 10 per cent and so throw in an additional $40,000 at the time of purchase. That means the buyer only needs to take out a $340,000 mortgage – which leads to savings over month-to-month payments.


Homebuyers pay back the money to the CMHC when they sell the house (or sooner, if they want).


Essentially, it acts as an interest-free loan but what is still not clear is if the buyer pays back the same dollar amount that was originally fronted or if it changes based on the increased value of the home.

Home designs, though more permanent than the fast fashion of catwalks, still follow the ebbs and flows of trends.


What homebuyers look for and want in a home is partially dependent on what is popular and trending at the time of purchase. Gone are the days of orange carpets, patterned curtains, and burgundy furniture of our parents’ generation.


Currently, the latest home trends reflect a shift in society due to land shortages, home prices, and the economy. Going smaller has become more popular, with an emphasis on sustainability and affordability, without forgoing comfort.


Here are some of the top trends right now.


1. Light and airy
Natural light has physical and mental benefits — and home buyers know that. People want to feel more connected to the outdoors and so look for more windows, screened porches and better access to the views outside.


2. Technology for greater convenience
Society’s gadgets and technology has increased at an outstanding rate. Things that used to be part of a futurist dream — like robotic house-helpers — are now part of a reality. Homebuyers are starting to expect things like smart fridges and smart alarm systems in their homes the sake of convenience. The technology exists, so why not?


3. Big tubs and remodelled bathrooms
Bathroom renovations are huge right now. No one wants a dingy, dark hole-in-the-wall bathroom and, instead, there’s a growing emphasis on a more spa-like experience.


Overhead showers, particularly square-shaped ones, are making a come back. But the biggest surprise is the demand for big, free-standing tubs: Homebuyers wants a little corner of luxury in their home.


4. Colours and motifs
Grey is the least popular colour currently — colours set the tone of the room and keep things feeling fresh. Trending colours right now include different tons of green and wood details.


5. Sustainability and green-minded
Things like solar panels, charging ports for electric cars and water-runoff systems are spiking in demand. It’s popular across the board, both for the environmentally conscious and those looking to save money long-term.
