Develop a steady passive income stream

If you invested in Ontario residential real estate in the past 20 years, chances are your property is worth substantially more than when you originally purchased it. You may have already owned your home for the past 5-10 years and seen your equity skyrocket. Perhaps you have even thought about how you can own a rental property to generate a steady passive income stream, or, wondered how you can better prepare yourself for retirement.

Residential real estate in Ontario has outperformed many other investments. This, along with an increasing demand for rentals in urban areas, makes buying an investment property a financially savvy move.

Leverage the existing equity in your home

As a homeowner, you’ve already built up equity in your home. An investment property mortgage leverages that equity, allowing you to purchase a rental property without putting down the cash. Using your existing home equity is a strategy that can be used to create a passive monthly income stream that covers the rental property mortgage and then some. This means that not only will your tenants completely cover your rental property, but with the right investment property mortgage, you’ll also be growing your wealth and increasing its value over time.

When you’re ready to take the next step towards your investment property purchase, we’re here to help. Our team of mortgage advisors specialize in investment property financing throughout Ontario. The best part is you can sit back and relax and while we handle all the “busy work.”

Frequently asked questions

Self-Employed Mortgage
Who is a self-employed borrower?
You! If you’re a contractor, consultant, freelancer or entrepreneur who collects invoices rather than employment pay stubs, you are self-employed. Technically, “self-employed mortgages” don’t exist. You will get approved for the same mortgage as everyone else but, you may have to jump through a few more hoops compared to a payroll employee.
How can I qualify as a self-employed borrower?
The primary difference between self-employed (or commission-based) and salaried employees is that lenders will treat your gross earnings differently. As a rule of thumb, lenders will only use 80% of your gross earnings and the average of last tax year’s income for commissioned sales people, and net income, instead of gross income, for self-employed individuals. `A lender is restricted by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) rules to use only the last three years of self-employment income.
Where should I start?
The best place to start is to determine how much you can afford to borrow. The mortgage amount you qualify for will depend on how much you earn, have saved for a down payment and your outgoing expenses. It's best practice to know how much money you have in your wallet before you start shopping around for properties. You can do this by getting a mortgage pre-approval with us.
