Here is a list of the types of mortgage financing we are able to arrange on your behalf.
Residential Mortgage FinancingYou have options! With the large number of banks we negotiate with, we are able to offer a wide variety of mortgage products. Tell us your goals and we will find the best type of financing at the best rates. We handle all types of residential mortgage financing including:
- Getting a mortgage pre-approval
- Arranging financing for a home purchase
- Arranging second mortgages
- Renewing your existing mortgage
- Refinancing your existing mortgage
- Switching your mortgage to a new lender
We also work with a wide range of smaller institutional and private lenders for applications that may not qualify under traditional guidelines. In most cases there are no fees for our services, we are usually paid directly by the lender. In some cases a broker/lender fee may apply, but not without full disclosure and your consent.
Commercial FinancingWe are here to provide first mortgage financing on conventional and CMHC insured (where applicable) commercial products. Loan proceeds are typically used to assist with the acquisition of the real estate or to re-finance any existing indebtedness. Here are some examples of properties we can finance:
- Retail Buildings
- Commercial Buildings
- Industrial Buildings
- Office Buildings
- Multi-Family Commercial/Apartment Buildings
Typically our commercial financing is between 65%-70% loan to value with a maximum of 85% LTV on CMHC insured applications. As every application is different and there are several ways to qualify commercial financing, we strongly suggest contacting us directly to figure out the best way to structure your application.
