Obtaining a mortgage is one of the most important decisions you may ever make, and with so many choices and ongoing decisions; the right advice can have a huge financial impact.

Before Looking to Purchase Get Pre-Approved!

Get Pre-Approved Before Purchasing

It is always a good idea to get pre-approved (or pre-qualified) for a mortgage before you decide to look at a new home.

A pre-approval will not only let you know if and for how much you are approved for, but also gives you better negotiating power and will to keep you within your budget.

Knowing that you are a serious buyer because you have already made that first important step, many home sellers will consider reducing a listed price to match your approved budget.

And by knowing how much your monthly payments are, you can then easily factor in additional cost like property taxes, utilities and insurance.

Another major advantage to pre-qualification is the rate hold. A rate hold means that you can secure an interest rate at today's current rates and keep these rates for up to 120 days or a full year on new construction. Even if interest rates drop during that time, you will still automatically qualify at the new lower rates. And, if the rates should ever go up, you would then get the secured rate.

Is Buying a Home a Good Investment?

Buying a Home as Investment

Many first-time home buyers are inexperienced when it comes to investing and even wonder if buying a home is a good investment? Don't take our word for it! You can ask other home owners as they tend to agree that yes buying a home is a solid investment.

Investing in real estate gives a home owner both financial leverage and possible monetary gains upon selling the residence. Because you are not required to have the full purchase price you can borrow the money to finance the purchase and when if you sell, any money made on the residence above the purchase price is tax free and yours to enjoy.

Stop! Don't Renew Your Mortgage...

Have you received your mortgage renewal in the mail? Don't just sign the form and send it back to the lender.

Over 70% of mortgage holders in Calgary and Edmonton do just that, and what is the usual result — a higher mortgage rate and a product that might not be best suited to their needs.
