SELF EMPLOYED MORTGAGE
With all the changing mortgage rules, one fact remains the same: Securing a mortgage for a self-employed individual is do-able however it is not as straight forward as a salaried individual. The main reason is that a self-employed individual’s income is not guaranteed and not as transparent to prove. For example, self-employed individuals are responsible for paying their own taxes and are not taxed at source, therefore they are more inclined to expense as much as they possibly can to pay as minimal taxes as possible. However, lenders are not very understanding of this concept. For most self-employed mortgages common documents lenders require to verify income are previous personal Notice of Assessments (usually the past two years) to ensure no taxes owing and to see how much was claimed. Clients who are able to provide such documents with satisfactory credit rating and a down payment can access similar mortgage rates and products to clients who are salaried.

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.
