Tell Us Your Story
I am Rate-Shopping
You have an approval from your bank but you feel that there are better deals out there. Let us know what rate to beat, and we’ll beat it, simple as that!
Use My Equity, Leave My 1st
You have been in your home for at least 1 year and would like to turn your equity into a loan or line of credit at an interest rate much lower than a loan or credit card. Ideal for renovations or debt consolidations.
I am Self-Employed
Can’t prove your real income? Many banks treat self-employed and commission sales as second-class citizens. Luckily we know lenders that want your business without sacrificing your rate.
Renewal or Refinance
Don’t just accept your bank’s rate! We will renew your existing mortgage with the option for additional funds to renovate, consolidate or invest. With the lowest rate, we will free-up your monthly cash-flow.
Started a New Job (or Mat Leave)
The big-5 banks won’t approve you, just because you changed jobs. Don’t get discouraged. We have a lender that will accept your new job while you are on probation.
I have Bruised Credit
If your credit history is not perfect, you can still get a good mortgage rate. We can find an A, B, or a private solution that will look at your overall situation, not just your credit score.
Buying a Rental or 2nd Home
The big-5 banks will structure your mortgage exactly how you tell them, however, what you say may work against your rate or insurance premium. We have creative solutions to work in your favor. Let’s talk!
Private or Second Mortgages
Look no further! We have privates for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd mortgages options to get you the best deal with a close eye on mortgage rates – Up to 90% mortgage financing.
At Search Mortgage Corp we are determined to secure the best Mortgage Rates for you! With access to a cluster of lenders in Canada, our skillfully trained Mortgage Agents will deliver flawless service whilst securing the best Mortgage Rate for you. We guarantee to thoroughly explain all of your unique options to narrow down the perfect fit for your situation. For example, as variable mortgages rates are dependent on market behaviour and are directly affected by the prime mortgage rate set out by the Bank of Canada, changes to the prime rate can affect your payments and your payments may change over time. Whereas fixed mortgage rates are locked in and you are protected and secured should the prime rate fluctuate.
We will also discuss other innovative tips on how to pay your mortgage down faster such as Mortgage Prepayment Options. Did you know that majority of lenders allow you to prepay up to 20% of your balance each year? This is a great way to pay down your balance much faster and make your money work for you! Prepayment options also provide you with the adjustability to raise your payments over the life of your mortgage. For example, if your current mortgage payment is $2000 a month and your prepayment privilege is $20% you can raise your payments $2400 a month. Moreover, if you decide to utilize the prepayment option to reflect your principle it would be dependent on your mortgage amount. For instance, if your mortgage amount was $250,000 and your prepayment privilege is 20%, annually you would be allowed to prepay up to $50,000 to directly apply to your principle, lowering your amortization and saving you money!
Along with securing the best mortgage rate for you, at Search Mortgage Corp, we’re here to navigate you through your mortgage needs to build a lifelong relationship!
Don’t Just Take Your Bank’s “Exclusive Rate”.
5 Reasons To Shop Around With A Broker:
Better Mortgage Rates
Rarely the Lowest Rates – If you’re looking for the lowest rates, chances are your big-5 bank will not have it. The lowest rates are usually offered by financial institutions and financial institutions only work with the mortgage broker channel, therefore, consumers cannot go directly to these financial institutions to get these ultra-low rates, you must use a mortgage broker!
Did You Know…that TD has the highest prime rate of the big-5 banks? This means although their variable might be advertised at Prime minus .5% however, their prime rate is actually higher than everyone else, misleading, don’t you think!?
Let us shop around – We can often get better deals than you at your own big-5 bank. We negotiate special group rates for our clients as well we can use our commission to get you an even lower rate. A broker can save you thousands. In most cases, we can even guarantee the lowest rate!
Second chances – Even if you’re turned down by a big-5 bank, we might still get you a deal with an A-lender (bigger banks that offer better rates). How? We know which lenders use which rules to qualify you.
Know Disadvantages Of Ultra-Low Rates – A low rate can be deceptive. You might get a low rate on your mortgage, but if you sell early or refinance, your bank may punish you using a higher posted rate. We can find you the same rate without that risk. Or we can find you a better mortgage altogether that will serve you better. Sometimes a higher rate can save you money in the long term or improve your cash flow in the short-term.
More Mortgage Options
We have relationships with over 100 lenders. We can find you diverse and flexible options not offered by the big banks.
Here are some ways we’ve made our clients’ mortgages more flexible:
Count a greater % of your rental income Purchase with as little as 5% down
Pay Interest-Only = More cash in your pocket 35-Year Am Mortgages
Mortgage & Credit-Line Combo Non-Provable Income.
One Institution, One set of products – Utilizing a mortgage broker gives you access to an array of lenders, hence pinpointing what is vital to you, the consumer, and securing the product. When going to one of the big banks there are so many other products, rates, and terms that are not available to you. One financial institution can only work within their guidelines and fit you in a box that you might necessarily not fit in.
1 Credit Check = 100+ Lender Options & Save Your Score
Get more options and protect your credit score. Every bank you get a quote from will run a credit check, which will lower your credit score. When we shop around for you, we’ll do a single credit check so we don’t hurt your credit score, even if we’re checking dozens of lenders.
Highest Penalties & Highest Pressure Sales
Highest Penalties – The Big-5 banks have the highest payout penalty out of all A-lending mortgage institutions. If you were to break your mortgage to refinance or sold your home, the big-5’s penalty is based on the interest rate difference (money they lost) on the posted rate vs. the real rate you received. Banks show a “posted rate” usually 2% higher than what you would really get and say “because you’ve been banking with us for X years, we’re going to discount our posted rate of 4.74% to 2.74%” but in fact, the real reason is to gauge you if you ever decide to break your mortgage.
High-Pressure Sales – In a recent article by CBC, thousands of employees from all big-5 banks have come forward about management forcing unrealistic sales quotas, unethical sales tactics and in turn, putting clients in the wrong financial product. You must remember these financial planners are also selling RRSP’s, GIC’s, Visa’s as well as mortgages. They don’t work full time in mortgages and therefore won’t be able to service you the way you should and offering products that you should be in saving you thousands.
