One of the great things about mortgages in Canada is that pre-approval is not difficult to obtain. Working with an expert relieves a lot of the stress and anxiety from the process, and helps you secure the best mortgage rate for your situation.
There are some of the key points you’ll need to be aware of if you’re thinking of getting a mortgage to buy a property in Canada:
- To be eligible for a mortgage you typically need to have been steadily employed in Canada for at least three months.
- You will need to have a good credit history, as this will assure lenders that you understand how to use credit wisely. To build a credit you should pay for your purchases using a credit card, and be sure to pay off at least the minimum balance before the due date each month. You can also prove your credit rating through international credit report agencies such as Equifax and TransUnion.
- Any other documents that show you consistently pay back your lenders will help your mortgage approval process. These documents could include things such as receipts from landlords, credit card statements, and utility bills.
