Q. Why would I invest in Canadian Mortgage when I hear so much about mortgage loses?
A. Despite the economic crisis Canadian mortgage market remains strong and many Canadian’s who chose to be private lenders are doing extremely well. According to the Canadian Bankers Association, the average arrears in Canada have averaged 0.42% for the past 18 years. Also, most of mortgages in Ontario end up in the power of sale, in case if sales amount is insufficient to cover mortgage loses, lender is eligible to place a judgments against them.

A.Having high interest rate of return reflects some degree of risk involved. Nevertheless, a proper approach to underwriting reduces the risk significantly. Every deal is done through a licensed lawyer. Investors may use their own lawyers if they feel more comfortable. We are using large bank services to administer each mortgage and fund distribution. This way everything gets done properly. Strict underwriting policies and deal negotiation insure that home equity won’t diminish over night and every mortgage payment is made on time.
Q. What are the rates of return?
A. Second and Private mortgage always had high yielding rates of return, you are looking anywhere from 7% to 12%. Interest rates depend on the size of the deal and risk factors. Higher risk deals result in higher rates of return and vice verse. We always recommend balanced approach and not to get carried away by high interest rates that the client is willing to pay. Being able to collect your money is more important then getting higher rates of return.
