Private Mortgage

Conventional mortgages are not for everyone. Sometimes a private mortgage is the best or only way to finance the property of your dreams. Private mortgages are tailored to the needs of the individual. They come all shapes and sizes. Most importantly, private lenders are more concerned with the value of the property that will secure the loan than in the credit rating of the lender.

Private mortgages are short term loans. Typically, they run for terms of between six months and three years. They are also interest only loans. The interest rate on a private mortgage will be higher than you’ll pay on a conventional mortgage. The higher interest rate reflects the higher risk to the lender.

You will also have to pay closing fees for the loan. You should budget for between 1% and 3% for these fees, but most lenders will include the fees in the mortgage. You will also need a down payment of at least 15%.

A private mortgage is the best fit for you under the following circumstances

  • You have a low credit rating and have been turned down by a conventional bank
  • You are self-employed or working off commission and have difficulty proving your income
  • You plan to buy an unconventional property that the banks won’t finance
  • You need the money quickly to take advantage of an investment opportunity.

Applying for a private mortgage is quick and easy. Private lenders do not have to wade through the bureaucracy common amongst the bigger institutions.
Your private lender will help you with an exit strategy because at the end of the term you should be in a position to pay back the capital amount and refinance through a cheaper conventional loan.

Frequently Asked Questions About Your Barrie Mortgage

What Is A Mortgage?

A mortgage is a loan made to buy a property. It is the legal document that carries the amount of the loan, the interest rate, repayment agreement and any other terms and conditions. The property is used to secure the loan. The lender may foreclose on the property and sell it to recover his money if the borrower defaults on payments.

The amount borrowed is known as the principal. Every time you make a payment, you pay the interest and a portion of the principal. In this way, the principal amount reduces over the term of the mortgage.


How Much Will We Need For The Down Payment?

To secure a mortgage you will have to make a down payment. The size of the down payment that you can put down will have a major effect on the size of your mortgage and the repayments that will have to make. The more you have to put down the better.

If you can make a down payment of 20% or more, you will have a conventional mortgage. If you can’t afford a 20% payment, you may have to settle for a high ratio mortgage. A high ratio mortgage attracts mortgage default insurance. You can pay this in a lump sum or in monthly instalments. The insurance covers the lender in case of a payment default.


Should We Seek Pre-Approval?

Pre-approval is a great option, as you can go property shopping in the certainty of receiving a mortgage that will cover the cost.

Pre-approval can save you time and effort as you know ahead of the house-hunt exactly what property you can afford.

It puts you in a strong negotiating position as the seller knows that you already have the funds available.

With a pre-approval, you’ll also know what interest rates you can expect and what your monthly payments will be so it makes it easier for you to budget.

When you obtain pre-approval, the interest rate is fixed for a period of between 60 and 120 days.


What Are My Choices When It Comes To Repayment Plans?

There are two types of repayment plan

  • An Open Mortgage Repayment Plan – If you have an open mortgage plan you can pay off your mortgage at any time without incurring penalties. You can also make large repayments whenever you want. These mortgages are usually short term, typically six to twelve months and the interest rates on these instruments are generally higher.
  • A Closed Mortgage Repayment Plan – The term of a closed mortgage is longer, running for periods of six months to ten years. Closed mortgages limit your options when it comes to making repayments. You will incur penalties if you decide to pay early, renegotiate or refinance your mortgage. The bank lender will also limit the lump sum payments that you make against the mortgage.

What is the Difference Between Fixed And Variable Rates?

There are several differences between fixed and variable rate mortgages. The correct one for you will depend on your risk appetite and view of the future direction that interest rates will take.

  • Fixed Mortgage Rate – If you opt for a fixed rate mortgage the interest rate that you negotiate will remain fixed for the full term of the mortgage. This type of mortgage is popular as it is a low-risk choice. On the downside, you are likely to pay more interest over the longer term.
  • Variable Mortgage Rate – The variable mortgage rate is connected to prime. In fact, your mortgage rate is quoted as prime less a percentage. As prime moves, so does the rate of interest on your mortgage. Many property owners are not prepared to take this financial risk even though, over time, the variable rate is lower than the fixed rate.

Terms That You Should Know When Closing a Mortgage

  • Amortization – The length of time that you will take to pay off your mortgage. It is typically considerably longer than the term of the mortgage.
  • Appraisal – a professional evaluation of the property value.
  • Deposit – payment made to ensure that the house is held for the buyer.
  • Down payment – a percentage of the cost of the property that the mortgagee must pay to close the deal.
  • Home inspection fee – the cost of hiring a qualified person to inspect the property for structural integrity prior to purchase
  • Loan to value ratio – the size of the mortgage relative to the property value. The lower the loan to value ratio the better.
  • Prepayment option – this option allows you to make certain specified pre-payment amounts of the principal amount. These options come with and without penalties.
  • Property transfer tax – a tax on the transfer of property from one owner to another.
  • Mortgage loan insurance – insurance for buyers who do not have the required down. payment. The cost of the insurance will depend on the size of the loan.
  • Term – the length of time that your mortgage will run before it requires renewal.

What Are Closing Costs?

Closing costs are all the costs that are associated with getting a mortgage. You can expect your closing costs to total between 2% and 4% of the mortgage. These costs usually include;

  • Appraisal fees – an appraisal of the property is often a lender requirement
  • Home inspection fees – to ensure that the
  • Legal fees
  • Realtor fees

You should also take account of the cost of moving when budgeting and don’t forget the property tax.


What Are My Choices When It Comes To Repayment Plans?

When first you take out a mortgage it may seem next to impossible to pay off your mortgage more quickly, but many have done it and reaped the benefits of reduced interest costs. Here are some strategies that you can use to pay off the mortgage

  • Make Pre-payments – Some mortgages allow anniversary payments of as much as 20% per annum. If you have a bonus or tax refund paying it into your mortgage will help you to quickly pay it off.
  • Make a Lump Sum Payment
  • Make a Bigger Down Payment
  • Make More Frequent Payments – Making payments weekly or fortnightly will save you interest.

Amortize your mortgage over a shorter period – If you can afford higher repayment, paying your mortgage off in a shorter period will save you on interest.

Getting a private mortgage was not easy to be honest, but at least with Mr. Leon it was doable. Thank you for your help!

There are a lot of mortgage brokers in toronto to choose from, I was a bit intimidated by that. Don't regret I picked CMB, they took the lead and made sure to cover all the bases

I was renting an apartment for a long time and finally decided to take a big step - get a mortgage instead. Team at certified Mortgage Brokers laid out various options for me. The actual process went smooth and quick, happy with my new home.

Ryder Turcotte

My wife and I decided to refinance our mortgage and started looking for a mortgage broker in Toronto. There were so many options, so you can imagine how overwhelmed we got! After talking to Leon we decided to proceed with Certified, didn't regret that decision once. They always gave useful recommendations, were attentive, and constantly in touch. And most importantly (for us) they helped us to save some money!!

Lucy Zimmerman

Vita was great. Helped my son with all the paperwork and got him very good interest rate. On the closing date called to follow up if everything went fine. Quite a pleasant experience. I would recommend this firm for anyone who is looking a mortgage broker.
