What financial benefits are there for me if I consider a new Mini Home, as my first home?

As a new mini home buyer, you potentially qualify for thousands of dollars in government rebates / incentives for your new home. These include the Canadian Home Buyers’ Plan that allows you to withdraw up to $20,000 from your registered retirement savings plan (RRSPs), the GST/HST New Housing Rebate for purchases of newly constructed homes, a PST First Time Homebuyers Rebate (up to $3,000) and possibly even some EnergyStar – Efficiency NS Rebates.
