Are you just getting started in the property market and need a mortgage helper? A basement suite or an apartment over the garage is a great way to bring in extra income. Some properties already have additional accommodation built-in while others have potential for an in-law suite or studio apartment. Rent to long-term tenants or to short-stay visitors during ski season.

Perhaps you’re on a tight budget and want to invest some sweat equity in a hidden gem. Renovating is one of the best ways to buy property at a small discount and realize a measurable increase in the market value of your home. It’s also a great opportunity to choose paint, flooring, and more to suit your style. Ask us how a mortgage broker can advance money for renovations with your home loan.

Creative seller financing offers buyers an alternative to traditional bank mortgages. Some properties, such as co-ops or leased land, have houses for sale that represent tremendous value if some financing can be arranged. Sometimes motivated owners of unique or hard-to-sell properties will offer a vendor take-back loan that can make qualifying for a bank loan a little easier.

Foreclosures, while unfortunate, are sometimes listed for sale in our area and may represent a compelling opportunity for those who don’t mind navigating the court requirements and waiting periods. We understand the approval process and would appreciate the opportunity to help you choose a foreclosure or bank sale property.
