Subprime Mortgage

What do you do if you need a mortgage but have less than impressive credit? What if you are self-employed and have a variable income? Can you still get a mortgage if your income relies on commission? These are questions we are often asked.

As a mortgage lender, knows all too well that some people will be turned down when applying for a mortgage. For the most part, the people being turned down are good upstanding Canadians who just want to own their own home but have reached an impasse because of credit mistakes from their past or their current employment situation. If you’re one of these people, you can still get a home loan in the form of a subprime mortgage.

What Is A Subprime Mortgage?

A subprime mortgage is a loan that is reserved for people with poor credit that have been turned down by their bank/mortgage broker. If you have poor credit but can still make your monthly mortgage payments, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to refinance your home.

Subprime mortgages are also available to those who have trouble proving their income because they work on commission or receive bonuses of varying amounts. These mortgages do require you to make a 20% down payment on your property. However, most mortgage brokers will tell you that making a down payment of less than 20% isn’t always the best option.

With a down payment of 20%, you avoid having to take out mortgage insurance which is an added monthly expense. You may have heard of these insurance companies such as CMHC or Genworth.

Being a new resident from another country and working for yourself can pose a lot of problems financially and I tried a number or people before finding Privatelend. Alicia and Sunny were quick, helpful and just made my life a whole lot easier. I can breathe again. I would recommend anyone to use them in a heartbeat.
