Emergency Mortgage

You find the home you want to purchase we’ll take care of finding the finances.


0% and 5% Down Payment on Mortgages

You should know that the minimum down payment for a mortgage in Canada is 5%? Well, that actually applies to the ones that cost $500,000 and below. It goes up to 10% for the ones that cost more. You can even reduce that to 0% via cash back option. So let us help you with your residential mortgage.


Taking Care of the Arrears

Mortgage arrears can happen to anyone any time. A bad turn in life can ruin your plans and some people are forced to give up their homes because of them. Financial setbacks, unexpected illnesses, or even the death of a loved one are events that no one wants; but they happen. Our team of talented and passionate professionals can help you and your family get back on your feet.


Mortgage Payment

There are several factors that will affect the amount you have to pay during the term of your mortgage. One of the factors is the amount of down payment you made. If it falls less than 20% of the total amount of the home you bought then you will have to pay a default on the insurance.
The lender will also add that default to the cost of your mortgage payments. To avoid this, you can opt in so that you make separate payments for insurance.

What Is A Mortgage?

A mortgage is a loan that is used to buy house and lot or some other kind of real estate. The party making the loan is called the mortgagor – that is you, the client who is applying for that loan. The lender on the other hand is referred to as the mortgagee.
As the mortgager you will be held responsible for making regular payments to the mortgagee. The payments you make covers part of the loan amount plus interest. In some cases, you will have payments that will cover insurance as well as taxes and other fees.


The matter of Interest Rates

As mentioned earlier, part of your payments will be made against interest. There are two types of interest that can be applied to your mortgage. The first one is called fixed interest rate and the other is called a variable interest rate. Just like anything, there are pros and cons to each of these two.


Fixed Interest Rates
When you say that the interest rate is fixed, that means this rate does not change as stated in the mortgage contract. Remember that you can negotiate for a fixed interest rate, a variable interest rate or a combination of both. With a fixed rate, your payments are also fixed amounts and the rate is set for the entirety of the term. A fixed term makes your budgeting more predictable. The downside is that you may end up paying more within your term.


Variable Interest Rates
Variable interest rates are adjusted according to the prevailing rates in the market. When the current rates go up, the rates you pay also go up and vice versa. According to historical market data, variable interest rates are usually lower compared to fixed interest rates on mortgages – that is when you are dealing with it for the long term. However, it will not be that easy to predict when the variable interest rates will be exactly lower than a fixed interest.


Always used to do my mortgage through my bank but got sick of the mediocre rates and the process taking forever. Decided to go and find a broker, read some reviews and made some phone calls and ended up working with Leon and the guys at Certified Mortgage Broker. Not only do they find better rates but they are always easy to reach and take you through the process step by step and answer any questions you have.

Leon and his team have been nothing but amazing since we started working with them. They took the time to explain the whole process and how it works. He then sat down and we figured out what mortgage would work best for us. Extremely patient and understanding, honestly can’t recommend these guys enough.
