Problems Securing a Bank Mortgage?

THINK Private Mortgage!

Qualifying for mortgages nowadays can be challenging. Government regulations affect down payments, investment properties and high-ratio buyers, making fewer Canadians eligible for home loans.

Housing is vital for the Canadian economy. Federal regulations limit mortgage eligibility. Home financing has become extremely difficult for self-employed, rural residents, and those with poor credit histories and now the strain has spread to people of other population categories. As a result, Canadians are opting for private mortgage lenders. Private mortgages are a viable option for many borrowers, not just a last resort.

Private Mortgage Lenders Operate Differently from Banks

A private mortgage is a type of home loan that you can get from someone who isn't a bank or a usual lender.

The biggest benefits of private lenders is that they function differently from banks in many ways. Privately funded lenders set their own criteria. They're more flexible in the application process and don't have to follow strict guidelines set down by major banking institutions. Private mortgages may be the ideal choice if you don't meet traditional lending criteria.

Private mortgages are often suitable if you:

- Are self-employed
- Want to purchase land or exclusive property
- Have poor credit
- Want to purchase an investment property
- Want to access to equity in your home, without refinancing your first bank mortgage because of excessive penalties
- Want to consolidate high interest debt
- Want to renovate an existing property
- Need a short-term loan
