Is a Private Mortgage Right for You?

There are just many situations in life when a “conventional mortgage” (i.e. a bank acts as the lender) doesn’t fit your needs. Private lender financing in Canada is up over 60% than in previous years, so it’s important to explore all of your options. Whatever type of financing you’re looking for, one of our Toronto mortgage brokers can help! Here we’re going to explore what a private mortgage is and what situations it works best in. The only thing that is different about a Canadian private mortgage is the lender, so let’s get started.

Why Would You Want a Private Mortgage?

There are many reasons someone would choose private mortgage lending over more traditional forms of credit. Maybe you have a poor credit history or no credit history at all (which likely isn’t the case in this situation, but everyone is different!) You could also be self employed or retired. Some people have high risk properties that can discourage traditional lenders, and others will need a private loan to bridge the gap between what they have and what they need to move into a new home. If you need to take out a second mortgage to pay off bills, a private mortgage may be right for you.

Why Private Lending?

When you work with Toronto mortgage brokers, you’ll get access to many different private and conventional lenders. If you want to be able to apply to as many lenders as possible to get the best outcome without ruining your credit, you’ll want to work with us. You’ll have a two week period from the time you first apply for a mortgage where your credit won’t be “dinged” for excessive inquiries. This is why when we take your application we start applying to multiple lenders for you, making sure you get the best mortgage possible.

What are the Benefits of a Private Lender?

When you work with a Canadian private lender, you get a lender who understands your situation. Why should you have to apply to just one lender and hope that the outcome works out in your favour when you can get the right loan at the right price from someone nearby? Interest rates now are at the lowest they’ve been in many decades, so if you can cash in on low interest rates now you’ll be able to have a great mortgage that you can live with today and tomorrow. Even if in the end you don’t go with a private lender, you’ll know that you explored all of your options and came out with the best mortgage for you.
