Snow Shoveling Tip 

Before going out to shovel spray the shovel with Pam, WD40, or a nonstick spray.  This will help the snow slide off and make shoveling a little easier.

∼The Greatest Compliment You Can Give Us Is A Referral∼

The home buying process has many steps along the way when searching for the perfect home. Realtors are essential when it comes to finding the right home but what about finding the right mortgage? Should a buyer use their bank, or should they use a Mortgage Broker? Riel Syrenne, an experienced Mortgage Broker with TMG The Mortgage Group and a Top 75 Canadian Mortgage Broker, says you should always use a Mortgage Broker and he is here to explain why.

As a Mortgage Broker, we have access to Banks (a good chance I already do mortgages for the bank you deal with today), Credit Unions as well as all Canadian Mortgage Companies (Lenders). My job for every client is to compare the options of your current bank, with all other options in Canada to make sure that you not only get the lowest rate, but also the most flexibility for extra payments, and the smallest fees in case you need to make any changes. These options always have promotions going on as well which can mean lower rates, free lawyer fees or cash back for you, the client. The only way a buyer can know they are getting the best options in Canada, is by speaking with a Mortgage Broker.

A misconception we hear a lot is that the process will be easier with their Bank because they have other products with them already, this is rarely true. Every bank has their own rules when it comes to Income guidelines, credit guidelines and qualifications. In a perfect world, a client would qualify for every option in Canada but because all banks have different rules, it is common that certain banks are much better than others depending on your situation. Every scenario is different and the only way to know all of these options, is by using a Mortgage Broker.

I would never recommend that a Buyer limits their options by only looking for homes on one street, or only looks for homes built by one specific builder. You always want to explore all options in the market and make sure the home fits the needs and lifestyle that suits you. This is why using a Realtor is so important as you have access to all options in the market. The same goes for your financing, having that “one street” mentality, and only being presented with one set of options is never the best road to take. As a Mortgage Broker I will always make sure that you save money, and that mortgage has the best options in market as well!
