How to get a mortgage with low credit score

Knowledge, experience and professional attitude, like our Associates!
Well, really? I would of been very surprised if mortgage lenders haven't come up with an idea to fit more people into their box, called; qualifying. The truth is mortgage lenders are out to get their funds earning a profit as much as mortgage borrowers need financing on their home, whether they are purchasing and or refinancing their existing home.
Now this is when is gets little tricky in a borrower point of view; some of this mortgage lenders are not available online and on the street corner with a smiling bank teller and manager, not even a mortgage officer. These mortgage lenders are only available through mortgage brokers like us.
Their rates are fantastic, very competitive with the rates with their friends at like the big five and or local Credit Unions and Trust companies. Their guidelines are easy to understand, their service is fast, friendly and most importantly they are the lenders you can make deals with and or they are lending an open ear when you have to renegotiate your mortgage and or have issues you need to get addressed and the last think you need a bureaucrat looking at you like you are from the moon when you ask them a simple question.
More to it, you must equip yourself with knowledge, have all the information needed to make the right decision. Most people think; well, I will listen to my mortgage broker, he or she knows, "why do I need to know all that, I am not about to get into the profession." " My broker knows, and it is good enough for me." AHHH (buzzzz) Wrong. You mortgage broker, if he or she is any good, possessing knowledge about mortgage products, rates and know all the lenders, the good ones anyway, whom your file if it is packaged right have the best chance to get approved. However your broker need to know about your circumstances, your needs, your plan and other pertaining information to best serve your best interest. Now, if you know some what the broker does, you will supply the right information and the plan what your broker will cook up for you will work and down the road in a year or two you will not feel you must run for cover and or you got a rotten deal from your most trusted adviser, your mortgage broker.
Finally comes to the end to all this gibberish, you must take your time to find the right mortgage broker, the one listens and the one will give you the time of the day to provide you with a free session of information and also asks you question, even some of them are not the most comfortable, but believe me not, the more personal it gets, the better your interest will be represented.
This is how we do business. If you think you might be interested to talk to us, be most assured, we care, we will look at you as a member of our family, and we will treat you just like we would like to be treated. With courtesy, professionalism and with a big smile. After all we would not exists if it would of not been for you.

Calgary Real Estate boom as a result of the biggest flood ever? Time for panic buying?

Record floods are driving up demand for homes on all levels, million dollar homes as well as started dwellings. The amount of activities are indicating a buying frenzy, no doubt about it. Not only first time home buyers, but people effected by the floods are looking to buy. High end neighborhoods along the Elbow River were among the areas hardest hit by the flooding, forcing some homeowners, whose properties will take at least several months to repair, to purchase homes elsewhere in the meantime.
Multi million dollar homes that would ordinarily take a year to sell are being snapped up for about 10 per cent more than they normally would within a matter of weeks; reported by realtors. That’s had a ripple effect throughout the city, as buyers have been forced to look further afield to find properties in their price range. This way buyers are bumped down creating a shortage in lower and higher priced properties as well.
Although the values of homes in flood-hit areas will likely drop we can expect prices across the city to rise and stay high for the foreseeable future.
July is usually a quiet month in real estate, except this year.
Calgarians who would ordinarily be looking to rent are being pushed into buying. The rental market is a huge concern. Vacancy rate was already quite tight to begin with and now it’s literally non-existent. People have been panicking. I definitely think it’s spurred people on to make a decision quicker. Mortgage rates are still on the low side, however they are climbing. This will make first time buyers little nervous and start looking. People are eager to buy property not necessarily because they've been directly displaced by the flooding themselves, but because they foresee a tighter market ahead generally.
Will home values in flooded areas drop may depend on whether the city builds berms or dikes to keep the water out next time the rivers spill their banks. Lot of those locations when they have done this type of work, valuation has fully recovered.

Housing market was tight before the floods for renters and buyers. Many buyers now will look in bedroom communities in a hope to get a price break, however most likely they will be disappointed.
Some renters are going to consider ownership. Otherwise, they’re going to consider what’s available to rent outside of the town.
In preparation for the price fluctuations and interest rate increases, one must get a mortgage pre-approval in order to get a rate hold for as long as 120 days. To keep informed follow us on Facebook and get a FREE no obligationconsultation to explore your options.

Recent surveys tell the truth...

A couple of recent surveys shed interesting light on the attitudes of home buyers in Canada. Both surveys -- one by one of the big banks and the other by CMHC -- suggest home buyers are getting smarter and more sophisticated. But there some who seem to be surprisingly naive.

The bank survey, which polled about 2,000 first time buyers online, indicates more than 30% of first-timers believe interest rates will stay put for the next five years. It is hard to know where this thinking comes from based on the Bank of Canada's clearly stated desire to raise rates and all of the projections from economists across the board. On the other hand the same survey suggests more than three-quarters of first-timers plan to "stress-test" their mortgages to make sure they can handle higher rates.

The CMHC report took a broader approach and surveyed about three thousand "mortgage consumers". Impressively, more than 80% of those surveyed said they were satisfied with their mortgage experience and were confident they got the best mortgage for their needs. But a closer examination of the responses indicates there is room for improvement. Only 49% of people who used a broker (and 33% of those who used a lender) were given follow-up contact. Of those who received follow-up from their broker, 70% "totally agreed" they were satisfied. Just 42% of those who did not get follow-up agreed they were "totally satisfied".

The survey also reinforces the increasing use of the internet in making mortgage decisions. Fully, two-thirds of people looking for a mortgage did research online. Eighty-four percent of respondents used the web for rate comparisons and a clear majority went looking for mortgage calculators. 


Find out the easiest way to get pre-qualified and have the best mortgage custom fitted to your circumstances with the lowest rate possible and the best product reflecting your needs.
MortgagePRO Ltd. is your best bet to get a mortgage even if you have issues, self employed and or new to Canada.

Mortgage Interest rate hikes; are we safe


We, at MortgagePRO believe in a well informed home buyer can make a better decision, thus save thousands on interest and pick a mortgage product, with our help, best suites their individual circumstances and future plans. We offer FREE consultation session to help you to see clear choices.
This week, some Canadian banks hiked the fixed rate on their five-year mortgage period by 20 cornerstone points to 3.29%. Not amazingly, lodgings bears are declaring that mortgage rates are now in an uptrend that will disintegrate the housing market. While we may be headed into an era of intensified instability, I’m still not convinced the bells are alarming. Here is why:
1. Fixed-mortgage rates ticked up this week because they are charge off bond yields and the last mentioned have been moving up as signals mount that the North American economy is profiting traction (leading to the Federal Reserve hinting that it may need to breeze down its monetary stimulus). But when the finances elevators off into a self-sustaining phase, employment and earnings development will furthermore be gaining momentum—which, in turn, will offset the harmful influence of rising interest rates on dwelling prices. There is not anything unusual about this dynamic: it seems regularly in the annals of business circuits.
2. Empirical data does not support the thesis that higher mortgage rates inescapably convert into smaller dwelling charges. In fact, a study of monthly housing data from 1980 to mid-2010 by mortgage expert MortgagePRO discovered that the majority of rate rises in Canada did not smaller house charges.
3. It is still an open question whether or not an uptrend has started in mortgage rates. Usually more than one increase is needed to make that call. But if an uptrend is starting, it’s worth noting that variable-rate mortgages stay tied to the Bank of Canada’s lending rate—and it will not be modified upward until the housing market is adept to take it in stride.
4. Annals shows that the initial rounds of rises in mortgage rates are actually bullish for the lodgings market because persons mulling a house buy are given a nudge off the fence. There is anecdotal clues for this already: “Multiple lenders are reporting high submission volumes [due to] persons endeavouring to trounce rate increases.”
5. There is a fair allowance of pent-up demand on the margins that could be encouraged by higher mortgage rates to go in the market. Growing number of families who put their conclusion to purchase on hold as an outcome of stricter lending guidelines are starting to become hardworking afresh in the owners market. Some of the people who have been leasing or living with parents in wants of buying a dwelling at a smaller cost may be getting married, having children, obtaining wages rises, or else easily concluding they can’t delay any longer.
6. If a increase in mortgage rates is starting, the Canadian market has a much greater capacity to soak up it than the U.S. back in the 2000s. About 70% of mortgages in Canada are actually fixed-rate mortgages and most of those are for five-year periods. This means rate rises will feed into the market slowly since only a portion of these mortgages come due every year. Just before the U.S. lodgings crash, about 75% of mortgages in that country were on variable rates and the Federal Reserve was aggressively going by car them up. Finally, a recent National Bank economic study discovered only 7% of borrowers under CMHC’s mortgage insurance program had reduced borrowing rankings, compared to 28% in the U.S. at the end of 2006.
7. The rate increase broadcast this week was for published rates. It is still rather supportive, and discounted rates are even lower, beside 3% on the 5-year period. Furthermore, it would not be surprising if published rates lagged rises in bond yields (and/or discounted rates lagged released rates) for the cause mentioned. The incredible shrinking mortgage rate a slowing down lodgings market places even more force on the banks to cut their [profit margins] as they battle for share in a dwindling market.
8. True, there may arrive a time when the finances become overheated and the Bank of Canada needs to squeeze. But that might be happening in the distant future and policymakers will be efficiently chastened by what occurred in the housing-meltdown countries to be more circumspect about precipitating lodgings busts. Eventually, ongoing development in incomes, along with the government’s tinkering with mortgage rules to hold a lid on charges, should have by then conveyed valuation down to safer levels.
