Kelowna Mortgage Brokers FAQ Icon

Applying for a mortgage shouldn’t be hard or confusing,
let’s break this down and make it simple for you!

What are Fixed and Variable rates?

In a Fixed Rate Mortgage, the interest rate is fixed for a specific amount of time. This period of time (the mortgage term) can range anywhere from 6 months to 10 years. Over the course of the mortgage, less of the payment counts toward interest and more toward the principal.

A Variable Rate Mortgage is one in which your interest rate will fluctuate with the Bank of Canada’s prime lending rate.. When rates go up, a larger portion of the payment goes toward interest. When rates go down, more of the payment goes toward principal.

What is an earnest deposit?

This is a sum of money given to bind the sale of real estate, or a sum of money given to ensure payment or an advance of funds in the processing of a loan.

What does a Mortgage Broker do?

A Mortgage Broker seeks out financing options for their clients. In other words, they facilitate the mortgage transaction between you and a Lender. Basically a Mortgage Broker offers advice, options and choice.  .They take care of the legwork of searching for the best mortgage product and interest rate by utilizing their network of lenders and financial institutions.

My bank declined me. Can I still get a mortgage?

It’s possible. After we analyze your own situation we’ll discuss what possibilities are available to you. However, lenders that deal with non-standard credit usually charge a higher rate than normal bank approved credit.

I’m self-employed and cannot prove my income. Can I still get a mortgage?

Yes! Some lenders use your stated income only to qualify, on approved credit. You still get favourable Canadian mortgage lending rates and, depending on the lender, could get up to 90% financing. Simply complete your Kelowna mortgage application today!

Are you Accredited?

Can I transfer my mortgage if I buy another home?

Depending on your mortgage lender, yes. Most lenders are now offering options that allow you to take (or “port”) your mortgage with you. Typically you will not be assessed additional fees if the possession period between your old and new home is 60 days or less.
