Trying to find a 2nd mortgage...

7 Replies

Currently looking for a second mortgage for a 28 unit apartment building.

Would like to find $100k for 2 years, paying monthly interest only payments with a balloon payment at the end at 10%.

The total purchase is for $820k.
First is for $620k
Second needed is: $100k

Total financing of 88%

If you might be able to do $50 or $100k on these terms then pm or email me.

Well in the US it's totally different but up here in Canada what happens is if you want high ratio lending it's tricky. The only two ways to really do it is a 85% CMHC insured first, a seller 5% second and 10% down. Or you can go conventional 75% first and then whatever the seller will carry as the second. There's not many I know of up here that do really high firsts and also allow just anything as the second.

I see that you are new.

Can you tell us a bit more about what you can offer in Canada? Maybe an easier question is what is your normal deal or typical customer profile? While mortgage brokers can cover a wide range many become experts in a certain segment of the broader market.

Thanks in advance.

PS. I am not looking for Canadian financing. I am just asking that you explain a bit more about your services and how the Canadian market works. Most folks down south will not have a deep understanding of your market.

Hi John,

Basically, I can take care of anything you would need to take care of with the banks. However, I've built my expertise dealing with mostly first time home buyers, self-employed borrowers, and foreign investors. I work with 90 lending institutions, which enables me to offer the most competitive mortgage terms there is.

You are welcome to ask me any questions you may have about financing in Canada.

Nice knowing you!

I picked up your email address from your website. I will send you an email.

I am not familiar with Canadian regulation for the provinces. Are you able to offer mortgage across Canada? In the US mortgage brokering is licensed at the state level.
