Getting ahead of your mortgage renewal can save you thousands.

  • Applying online is the first step
  • We can move your mortgage with no cost to you finding you the best term, rate, and product available on the market at renewal time. We can start locking rates in place 120 days (4 months) prior to your renewal.
  • We will closely monitor this rate leading into your closing date, and if a lower rate presents before renewal date, we will apply the discount. 
  • Considering breaking your current mortgage contract to lock into lower rates? In some cases, this can save thousands in interest, and other times the penalty is too high to consider. We can review these options with you.

If you own your current home, you can refinance your mortgage up to 80% of the value of the home. The value of your home vs the current mortgage balance will determine how much equity is available.

  • In some cases, if you only need a small portion of your equity, we may also be able to set up a Home Equity Line of Credit that you have access to should you need it in the future.

If you are purchasing a home that needs your own personal touch or some minor upgrades the purchase plus improvements program can be very helpful

  • For borrowers who want to make improvements to their home immediately after taking possession of the purchased property, the Purchase Plus Improvements Program allows them to do so with one manageable mortgage.
  • Improvements can include such things as: new flooring, a bathroom or kitchen remodel, a new garage, paint etc.
  • Improvements cannot include things such as: window coverings, new appliances or hot tubs (things that can be removed from the home) 
  • You are required to provide quotes for all improvements you wish to do
  • You are required to pay for all the improvements (as per your quotes) with your own funds.
  • Once the work is done (to 100%) the lender will release the funds to reimburse you the money spent to do the upgrades.
