1. How much equity do I require?

It will depend on the location and property type. You will need more than 20% in most situations.

2. What interest rate will I qualify for?

Every application and property is evaluated individually, and the interest rate will be based on the amount of risk involved. Rates will be higher than bank rates for “A” borrowers.

3. How good does my credit have to be?

In most cases, your credit will not be considered.

4. What if I don’t have any income?

Every deal is evaluated on its own merits and circumstances. A reasonable expectation for the ability to pay is considered.

5. How much income do I need to qualify?

You may not need any. It will depend on the circumstances and the exit strategy providing you have enough equity.

6. What if I have gone bankrupt before?

As long as you have enough equity and the deal makes sense, you can get a loan, (or you now have enough income with equity).

7. How much will it cost to get a loan?

There will be a fee charged by the broker which will vary depending on a number of factors. Do note that some brokers will be more expensive than others.

8. What happens at the end of the term of the mortgage if I still don't qualify for bank financing?
