Your Mortgage. My Service.

Dedicated. Knowledgeable. Friendly.

Relax, while I find the best mortgage for you

 

I have access to many different mortgage products and unpublished special rates from banks, credit unions, monoline, alternative, and private lenders. I can find the best mortgage or line of credit for you whether you are looking for a residential, multi-residential, or commercial loan for a new purchase, refinance, renewal. 

 

I can accept applications through this secure online website if you click the "apply now" button, or otherwise I will be glad to take your application over the phone or in person, whatever is easiest for you!  Mortgage financing is made quick and easy with e-signatures whenever possible; therefore, I can broker a moretgage anywhere in Canada! 

 

It is important to understand that mortgage products can vary quite a bit from lender to lender in order to meet the various needs of borrowers.  For instance, in addition to standard low interest insured and uninsured mortgages from banks and monoline lenders, I have lenders that offer

  • borrowed down payment;
  • residential mortgages to borrowers who own multiple rental properties;
  • interest only loans;
  • bridge financing;
  • mortgages to borrowers who have declared bankrupcy in the past or have just been discharged from a consumer proposal;
  • mortgages to those who need to use child tax credit or other payments to support income;
  • mortgages to borrowers who are self-employed with stated income;
  • reverse mortgages for property owners age 55+;
  • mortgages qualified under the 'old rules'; 
  • commercial loans;
  • unsecured loans;
  • car loans; and
  • the list goes on.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             

I have the flexibility to meet your needs whatever they are.  Simply put, as an Independent Mortgage Agent, I offer you more choices and an unbiased opinion.

 

 I also offer an excellent Mortgage Protection Plan from Manulife at an affordable price.  It is worth noting that the best thing about the Manulife Mortgage Protection Plan is that the plan is not discontinued if you move to a new home and or you refinance with another lender.  If you purchase the plan through me, the plan stays with you as long as you have a mortgage even if you move and or change lenders.

Following is a Brief Description of Reverse Mortgages for Senior's age 55+

 

     There are different products available to help seniors over the age of 55 live comfortably in their own home if they do not qualify for a standard mortgage.  The HomEquity CHIP and Income Advantage Reverse Mortgages, Equitable reverse Mortgages as well as the Manulife One Line of Credit are all good products to help seniors who need a little extra cash to make their lives more pleasurable.  

 

     If you or someone you know might benefit from a reverse mortgage or other financing available to seniors, please call me.  I will be glad to explain the products in more detail on the phone or in person. Following is a bit of information.

 

     Did you know that seniors can get as little as $500 a month tax free income from the equity in their home through a Reverse Mortgage?  And you do not need to income qualify for a reverse mortgage like you do with a standard mortgage.  As long as you own your home you will qualify for a reverse mortgage up to a preprescribed amount that is based on the age of the applicants, the location  and value of your home.

 

     Adding $500 tax free to your monthly income could make your life so much more enjoyable. Conversely, $6,000 is not a lot of equity to take out of your home over the course of a year especially considering the value of your home today.

 

     I feel very strongly that the reverse mortgage is an excellent tool to help seniors live independent, comfortable and happy in their own home for as long as possible; particularly, in situations where the home owner is experiencing health issues and suddenly has unexpected expenses, or worse, suddenly is living on a single pension. This product is an excellent tool to help seniors through difficult times.  The payments can be started and stopped as need be.

 

     If you are struggling to make ends meet on a pension, for whatever reason, I highly recommend that you consider a reverse mortgage. With this product, you choose how much money you need monthly to live comfortably and, if you need a lump sum for home repairs or a well-deserved vacation, then you can also take a lump sum at any time you choose.

 

     I am also a CHIP reverse mortgage specialist among many other mortgage products. With the CHIP reverse mortgage, you could receive a larger tax free lump sum amount out of the equity of your home anywhere from $25,000 to 55% of the value of your home in most cases.

 

     With either product, there is no need to make a payment all the while you own your home but, if your situation changes and you wish to make payments or want to pay the mortgage off later, and then you have the option to do that too.  Maybe you will win the lottery!! lol

 

     I have access to many different products from multiple lenders including unpublished special rates on standard mortgages, lines of credit designed specifically for seniors, or private mortgages. I am a certified mortgage specialist in Canada for most products but Ontario for the revere mortgage. I am customer focused and will do everything in my power to ensure you are served well.

 

     Another product that is good for seniors who feel that they would like the flexability of a loan to consolidate debt, pay for home repairs, or unexpected expenditures is the Manulife One Line of Credit.  Manulife One offers very competative rates, and, interest is calculated differently than the major banks in a manner that makes their Line of Credit more advantageous for the borrower.  A borrower must income qualify for the Manulife Line of Credit, but the company is flexible.  More often than not, seniors who do not qualify for a standard mortgage, will qualify for the Manulife LOC.  

 

     I will be glad to give you more information about any of these products that are available to help seniors.  I also am pleased to give a short 5 or 10 minute group presentation to briefly explain the products at meetings if you wish.

 

     Please contact me by clicking the contact button on my webpage or call 1.833.269.3721 or my cell 905.269.3721 to arrange a complimentary meeting at your convenience.

 

     I look forward to speaking with you.

Sincerely,

Nancy

Almost one-quarter of Canadian seniors are caregivers

While older Canadians may be more likely than their younger counterparts to require help and care in their daily lives, almost one-quarter of Canadian seniors aged 65 years and older are caregivers themselves. And while the roles and responsibilities of these senior caregivers may have changed in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, the challenges they face could be heightened. Although the pandemic has affected the lives of all Canadians, seniors have been identified as a population particularly vulnerable to COVID-19. Not only are seniors more at risk of severe illness, they are also more affected by isolation measures. As a result, many senior caregivers who help people living outside of their household may not have been able to provide the same level of care that they usually do. Senior caregivers providing help to their spouse may also have seen their burden of care increase, given the possible lack of other support during the pandemic. For example, older caregivers who are usually supported by their adult children to provide help and care for their spouses, may have had to perform additional activities and provide more hours of care than usual. While the data in the current study were collected prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the results highlight the many challenges senior caregivers already faced. A new study, The experiences and needs of older caregivers in Canada, uses data from the 2018 General Social Survey on Caregiving and Care Receiving to provide a profile of senior caregivers in Canada. Senior caregivers are those who have provided help or care to a spouse, another family member, or a friend with a long-term health condition, a physical or mental disability, or problems related to aging. Senior caregivers are likely to continue to play an important role in the years to come. As the needs for care and help increase with an aging population, smaller families and geographic mobility among Canadians may reduce the supply of potential younger family caregivers. Within this context, many older Canadians may be relied upon to become care providers, even though they may develop health issues of their own, including age-related physical and cognitive declines, chronic illness and some level of disability.

Week in review

Real GDP continued to recover in August, gaining 1.2% m/m, a result above the +0.9% print expected by consensus. This marks the fourth monthly gain in a row for this indicator, however total output is still down 4.6% from its pre-pandemic (February) level. Production rose in 15 of the 20 industrial sectors covered in August, with two others remaining flat in the month. Goods sector output climbed 0.5% on decent rises for construction (+1.5%) and manufacturing (+1.2%). Industrial production edged up 0.1%. Services-producing industries, meanwhile, experienced a 1.5% surge in production, with the steepest progressions occurring in arts/entertainment (+13.7%), accommodation/food services (+7.3%) and educational services (+3.4%). Year on year, total economic output was down 3.8%. Canadian GDP registered yet another advance in August but the economic recovery remains highly uneven. Some sectors have now fully recovered from the COVID-19 shock and currently stand above their pre-pandemic peaks. That is the case for agriculture/forestry/fishing/hunting (+2.5% compared with February), finance/insurance (+2.1%), real estate (+1.5%), wholesale (+1.3%), retail (+1.2%) and utilities (+0.8%). That said, certain industries continue to suffer. For instance, production in the mining/quarrying/oil and gas extraction segment remains 17.2% below its February level thanks in large part to depressed energy prices. The sectors most affected by social distancing measures are also struggling to recover. Output in the arts/entertainment segment is roughly half what it was before COVID. Production in accommodation/food services, meanwhile, remains 28.2% short of pre-pandemic levels. Transportation and warehousing is also tracking 20.5% below February. While the economic rebound is likely to have extended into September Statistics Canada advance estimate suggests production expanded another 0.7% in the month the steep gap between the best and worst performing industries is likely to endure in a context in which people continue to avoid social contacts. Looking further ahead, the real question remains whether the recovery can be sustained, especially now that COVID-19 cases are surging back up, forcing some provincial governments to reintroduce social distancing measures.
