Competition = Low Mortgage Rates

Many Albertans apply for a mortgage with just one lender, often their bank, without shopping around without realizing that competition always results in the best deal.

We will survey the market and search dozens of mortgage lenders to find the best rates in Canada. This FREE unbiased service ensures that you will receive low mortgage rates and huge savings over the term of your mortgage:

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.

Shopping the banks for best rates might damage Your Credit Score!

Shopping the Banks

Did you know that every time a lender checks your credit, it lowers your beacon score? So if you go to four or five banks, you just lowered your beacon score because each bank had to check your credit history.

The difference between having a mortgage broker shop for the best mortgage rates rather than you is that the mortgage broker only checks your credit history once.

Consider using a mortgage broker when shopping for the best deal. It costs nothing and it won't damage your credit score.

What is an assumable mortgage?

An assumable mortgage is one in which a qualified buyer can take over the mortgage from the current owner on the property being purchased. Assuming a mortgage requires a simple amendment to the mortgage document registered on title. This type of mortgage can offer the qualified buyer with a better than market interest rate in some cases and also cut legal costs associated with obtaining a brand new mortgage.
