Become a renewal superhero today!
Your home is probably your most valuable asset, but how many times have you actually looked at other options when refinancing your home? If your mortgage renewal is approaching, now is the best time to look at the mortgage options and competitive rates available to you.
Did you know that over 70% of homeowners will send back their renewal letter without asking any questions? How many lenders have you visited to discuss your mortgage options in comparison with the number of dealerships you visited when purchasing a vehicle?
It's not all about the rate!
Most Canadians think a low mortgage rate is good, but the big mistake many people make is focusing solely on a single number. There are a lot of other conditions attached to a mortgage that affect how much the mortgage will actually end up costing you. A mortgage broker can offer advice and options to help you get ahead.
Perhaps your mortgage needs have changed since you purchased your home. Maybe you want to use your mortgage to:
- Consolidate high-interest debt to increase your cash flow
Fund tuition or post-secondary education
Start a renovation project
Purchase a cottage or vacation property
Are you confident you will get the best rate at renewal with the options that will allow you to pursue your goals?

We deal with multiple lending institutions, including major banks, credit unions, trusts, and other national and regional lenders, which means we can use our significant negotiating power to find the best mortgage to fit your specific needs!
A real-world example of how your renewal can impact your bottom line:
Purpose: A newly separated father wanted to renew his mortgage and consolidate debt without incurring penalties
Challenge: Client could no longer use his wife’s income at renewal and was in a new job with a lower income than his previous employment. To stay afloat, he had taken out a second mortgage on his home and used credit cards. Due to the separation, he also had to pay $737 in child and spousal support.
Solution: We were able to use his home equity to pay out the second mortgage, rolled his credit card debt into the buyout and negotiated a new mortgage that combined his debt and mortgages into one, thereby cutting his monthly debt payments in half. To celebrate, he took his kids on a vacation for the first time in many years and started RESP savings plans for their education.
Liabilities: $308,000, 1st mortgage $232,000, 2nd $20,000 in credit card debt
