If your mortgage renewal is fast approaching then you’ll soon be at an important financial milestone. Now’s a great time to look at the many innovative options and competitive rates available. Lenders send out renewal forms just prior to renewal dates to those with good payment histories, with about 70% of homeowners sending it back without asking any questions. In today’s hectic world, that can be the easiest and best route, but you should ask yourself some questions before you sign on the dotted line. This could be an important moment of opportunity.
Having multiple lenders compete for your business is a great way to ensure you get the best rate for your situation. We deal with multiple lending institutions, including major banks, credit unions, trusts, and other national and regional lenders, which means we can put significant negotiating power behind finding the best mortgage to fit your specific situation.
Refinance / Equity Take Out
Many Canadians are taking advantage of refinancing some of the Equity in their home to consolidate high interest rate credit cards to one lower rate. This can save you money and increase your cash flow while reducing your stress. Or perhaps you need some much needed improvements completed in your home. One important part of a strategy is knowing “good debt” from “bad debt.”
Home Equity Line of Credit
Sometimes, the house of your dreams is the one you’re already living in! Maybe it just needs some landscaping, an expanded kitchen or a swimming pool in the backyard! There’s never been a better time to access extra funds that can help bring your home to that next level of comfort. Consider accessing the cash you need for the renovations and improvements you’ve been dreaming about.
Purchase Plus Improvement
Turn that fixer-upper into a head turner. All it takes is TLC.
Fixer-uppers provide excellent value for your real estate dollar, as you can avoid the premium demanded by turn-key properties and can tailor remodelling projects to your personal preferences.
When it comes to mortgages, it hasn’t always paid to be self-employed – because reducing your taxable income can make it difficult to qualify for the mortgage you deserve. We understand business owners because we’re business owners as well!
What’s better, we have a long list of institutional and private lenders that offer excellent mortgage options for self-employed Canadians. These lenders in Canada understand that self-employed individuals have tax write-offs creating significant reductions in their declared income. With these mortgage lenders, you will not be required to prove your income and a reasonable estimate of your annual income will be acceptable.
New to Canada
Establish yourself in Canada and make yourself at home. Homeownership may play a large part in your “Canadian Dream.” Just because you are a New Immigrant does not mean that you have to wait to purchase a home. The good news is that buying your first home is not as difficult as you may think.
Looking to expand your Real Estate portfolio? Investment properties, particularly smaller residential Real Estate, are accessible to many average Canadians. And as any Homeowner will confirm, Real Estate has been one of the most attractive investment categories in Canada for the past decade.
