What is a down payment?
Part of the purchase price of a property that is paid in cash and not financed with a mortgage.
Why is a mortgage insurance premium necessary?
Regardless of mortgage rates, if a down payment is less than 20% of the home or property value, mortgage insurance is mandatory in Kelowna (and across Canada). Mortgages have built in insurance premiums, so, therefore, the clients do not pay “out of pocket” for this expense. For mortgage lenders, a down payment of this size is more of a risk, so the mortgage insurance premium acts like a guarantee in the event of a default on the loan.
Do mortgage brokers work for the bank or a financial lender?
Neither! A mortgage broker has a portfolio of lenders they work with to meet their clients’ mortgage needs. That’s one of the chief reasons brokers help their clients get better deals – unlike banks or other financial institutions, brokers are looking to help you get the best deal on your mortgage, not fill up a target mortgage product quota.
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!
