Private lending or a private home mortgage means getting the financing you need from a private mortgage lender, as opposed to applying to a bank or other financial institution for a loan.

There are advantages and disadvantages to a private mortgage, but the most important thing you should understand is that private lending covers a broad range and can be tailored to each homeowner’s specific needs. Since this is a special type of mortgage or loan, it can be difficult to understand its particularities. If you want to succeed in securing a private loan for your financial needs, you will need guidance and advice from trained specialists. At Rampone-Marsh, we can offer you that guidance, along with convenient offers because we are the best in what we do.

Why would you need the services of
a private mortgage lender?

Most people turn to private lending when they have been refused by the bank for various reasons. The most common reason has a lot to do with bad credit, meaning late payments and a not-so-bright credit history. But there are other reasons why the bank may refuse a loan: the difficulty of the type of loan, the existence of a first mortgage and not enough equity to allow for a second one, etc. Regardless of the reasons, you don’t have to give up just yet. The existence of private lenders may offer people who have been turned down by the bank a second chance.

Of course, there is no guarantee that if the bank turned you down, a private mortgage lender would automatically accept your proposal. And you should know that interest rates for a private mortgage are higher than for a standard one, but they are still lower than the interest rates of a personal loan, let’s say. If your credit history is not very bright, that interest rate may go up. However, private lending still represents a chance for you to fulfill your dreams and not let financial obstacles stand in your way. And if Rampone-Marsh is your private mortgage broker in Kelowna, you have even bigger chances of securing a private mortgage to help you achieve your goal.

Investing in money can turn out to be a very profitable investment if you have the right guidance and expertise. Two of the biggest advantages are that you can decide the exact amount of money you want to invest, and you can also control the return of investment based on the interest rate you agree to charge. While becoming a private lender can be an excellent business idea, you should be aware that there are risks involved and decide from the start how you want to screen your clients. You should have access to their credit history and financial overview and also get to know them and see what type of persons they are.

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!

Why is an appraisal necessary?

Every conventional mortgage that includes a minimum 20% down payment requires an appraisal because the mortgage is uninsured. The lender wants to see that your purchase price is in line with the property’s fair market value. Lenders want to see that you are purchasing a quality property and that they will be able to recuperate the full amount if you default on the loan.

Why use a Mortgage broker instead of my bank?

When you work with your bank, you get one choice- the one they offer you. But there are plenty of other lenders out there that may be able to offer you a product or rate better suited to your unique needs. Every bank says they have the best product or rate, but it’s just not possible for everyone to have the best.

Rampone-Marsh Mortgages is an independently owned Mortgage Brokerage that works for you. Because of our network of lenders, we’re able to present you with a range of choices, allowing you to select the best option. Lenders compete for your business, so you get the best deals. Best of all, you’ll have an experienced mortgage broker to help you make sense of your choices and understand the variety of products and how each one could benefit 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 the principal.
