How are you different than a bank?

I shop Canada’s top mortgage lenders to find the mortgage that works best for you. I complete all the research so you can be confident in your mortgage.

What is the difference between an insured mortgage and a conventional mortgage?
An insured mortgage is when you have less than 20% to put as a down payment on your purchase. By law, banks cannot lend more than 80% of the value of the home unless CMHC, Genworth or Canada Guaranty insures it. These insurers protect the lender against default. An insurance premium is charged and is added to your mortgage amount.
A conventional mortgage is when you have 20% or more to put as a down payment on your purchase. In most cases, there is no insurance premium charged. Occasionally, the lender may still need to have the mortgage insured through CMHC, Genworth or Canada Guaranty depending on the location of the property or type of property being purchased.
Are Mortgages Brokers for clients who can't qualify at a bank?
This is the biggest misconception with using a Mortgage Broker. The truth is mortgage brokers help everyone get a mortgage approval.
What is the Home Buyers Plan?
The Home Buyers Plan is a federal government program that allows each borrower to use up to $35,000 from your RRSP’s, without paying income tax when you withdraw it when you purchase a home.
What is the Purchase Plus Improvements Plan?
This plan lets you add the cost of upgrades to your mortgage before you move in! Eligible upgrades include – a new electrical service, a new roof, central air, a new furnace, new siding, doors, windows, a new kitchen, carpeting… or any other renovation that would increase the value of the home.
The way it works is like this… Let’s assume that you are a first time buyer and have 5% down payment. Before the mortgage financing is arranged, written quotes are obtained from licensed contractors for the repairs and or the improvements to be done to the home. When the application for mortgage financing is made, the request is made for 95% of the purchase price PLUS 95% of the cost to complete the improvements.
