Real estate mortgage & home-buying tips

Real estate mortgage

The first step toward home ownership is determining how much you can afford. Affordability is usually based on your household income, personal monthly expenses and the automatic expenses associated with owning a home: property taxes plus running costs (electricity, water, etc. if a house or condo fees if a condominium suite). Your real estate mortgage broker will help you determine how much you can afford and what type of mortgage would be most suitable for your financial circumstances. Before meeting with your broker, you can use our real estate mortgage calculators to get a general idea of a mortgage amount that is within your financial and lifestyle means.

Get pre-approved before you get serious

It's also an excellent idea to get pre-approved for a mortgage before you start house hunting. This lets you know exactly how much home you can afford so you don't waste time looking at properties that are outside your price range. Your mortgage broker will take you through the pre-approval process to secure the mortgage amount you need.
