When you should consider a private lender to finance you Barrie property

You should consider using a private lender in the following circumstances

  • Where your debt to income ratio is high
  • If your credit score is preventing you from getting a mortgage from a traditional lender
  • If you have recently been insolvent
  • When you have insufficient funds for a down payment on the property
  • If you earn income from a non-traditional source
  • If you want to obtain a second mortgage
  • If the property that you wish to purchase is not one that the banks would finance
  • You need fast finance and don’t want to wait for a long approval process.

Not everyone will qualify for a mortgage through traditional lenders. Institutional lenders are governed by strict lending regulations. Private mortgages are short-term, interest-only loans and they offer the borrower an opportunity to finance property over the short term while finding alternative ways to borrow money.


Private mortgage lenders are a great option for those who want a personalized experience, and who want to avoid the extended lead times and red tape required by institutional lenders. Private lenders are usually happy to finance property by up to 85%. Their primary concern is the value of the property rather than the history of the borrower.

Important considerations

  • Property value – the property must be in good condition. It will be appraised. This is the most important aspect for the private lender as the property is the collateral for the loan.
  • Income – the lender will want to know that you can pay back the loan.
  • Down payment – the minimum loan to value ratio is 85% so the minimum down payment that you will have to make is 15%. The larger the down payment that you make the better from a risk perspective.

Interest rates are higher on private mortgages

Private mortgages in Barrie are more expensive than traditional mortgages and depending on the risk the additional cost can range from 2% over the bank rate to upward of 20%. The interest rate that you pay will be determined by the loan to value rate, the location of the property and the overall perceived risk.
There are also fixed costs involved with private mortgages. These include appraisal costs, legal fees and broker fees. In some cases, the costs can be included in the mortgage.

Applying for a mortgage through a private lender is quick and easy. You will receive personal service and the loan provider will get to know you and your requirements. Mortgages with private lenders typically last just a year or two so you must have an exit strategy, a plan to settle and move to cheaper more traditional lenders within the time period. Your private lender will help you to find a traditional lender.

Turkin Mortgage can match you with a private lender in Barrie that best suits your requirements as we have with a large number of lenders with different areas of expertise on our books.

Was looking for a mortgage broker in Toronto. Heard about Leon and his team from a co worker and decided to give them a call. after some time on the phone talking about mortgages and what would work best for me I was VERY impressed. They were polite and most importantly they knew what they were talking about. We then scheduled an appointment and I got my mortgage with a great rate. Definitely recommend.

Got tired of sow service and mediocre rates from my bank, so I started looking for a mortgage broker. Had some family friends recommended Leon and his team, so decided to check them out. Was very impressed with Leon, he guided me through step by step, recommended a mortgage and I ended up switching to him. My rate is better and he always answers call and emails right away.

A little while back my wife and I finally decided to stop renting and get a place of our own. After some searching we found a condo we both liked and that was in our price range. The next step was a mortgage, but honestly, neither of us knew too much of what we were getting into. We found Leon and his team after a quick search on google and have had a wonderful experience. Leon and his team of mortgage brokers are VERY knowledgable, polite, work fast and just all around very professional. They answered all our questions and we got a great rate.

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

Going through with this company was my best decision. These Burlington mortgage brokers are real professionals. They helped me to save thousands of dollars, I'm not sure I'd find such a good offer myself.
