Why get pre-approved?
When you are ready to purchase a home it makes sense to negotiate from the strongest position possible. In a strong real estate market, sellers can be more selective in the buyer they choose to negotiate with. In a seller’s market it’s not uncommon for a home seller to receive multiple competing offers on their property. With that said, there are certain things you can do to help your offer be the one that the Seller goes with. There are many online tools available, a simple search for Mortgage Calculator Barrie will give you several calculating options. These calculated results do not mean you are pre-approved. Working with lenders on a daily basis allows us to provide our clients with proven individuals that can provide you with some of the best rates available and courteous professional service.

Should I get a mortgage from a broker or a bank?
It’s no surprise that Canadians are increasingly using mortgage brokers to get the lowest rates on their home loan. Brokers have access to a variety of lenders, and they often get more competitive rates than regular consumers because of the special relationships they have with the institutions they do business with. Because brokers process a lot of mortgages, they can pass the volume discounts they receive on to borrowers like you!

Variable or fixed rate mortgage?
Fixed rate mortgages offer the most security because your payments will stay the same for the duration of the mortgage term, while variable rates fluctuate with market conditions, so your mortgage payments can go up or down, depending on the interest rate environment at the time.
What’s the difference between an open mortgage and a closed mortgage?
Open mortgages can be paid off at any time without penalty, while closed mortgages essentially lock you into the loan for the duration of the term. With a closed mortgage, you’ll most likely get a lower interest rate than you would on a comparable open mortgage. If you must pay off a closed mortgage, you’ll still be able to do so but will have to pay a steep “penalty” for exiting the loan ahead of schedule.
How is a mortgage term different from an amortization period?
A mortgage term is the amount of time the conditions of your mortgage contract (interest rate, payment schedule, etc) remain in effect. At the end of the term you’ll need to renew your mortgage.
The vast majority of Buyers’s go about the process entirely wrong, putting themselves at a disadvantage!
From the Seller’s perspective, if you had multiple offers on your property and all things were equal, would you accept the one with financing approval or the one that was still conditional on financing? The answer is obvious. pre-approval is usually quick and easy it can be done in a couple of days. What I have found is that those buyers are usually very good, qualified buyers and are not worried about getting approved. Even though they usually are correct and will ultimately be Approved, the Seller in most cases has no guarantees.
As a prospective Buyer, it makes all the more sense to start the financing process early on so you can get a firm handle on how much money you can borrow and be comfortable spending. If you do this before finding a home, you are not under any time constraints or obligations to purchase.
