Self Employed Mortgage
SELF EMPLOYED MORTGAGES FROM CANADA’S MORTGAGE COMPANY
Mortgages for self-employed individuals and small business owners have become a very popular mortgage product over the past decade. Today, more and more Canadians are opting to work for themselves or go on contract with their existing companies rather than receive a salary. There are certainly some advantages to being in business-for-self. Perhaps the greatest is the ability to write-off many personal expenses and ultimately pay less income tax. The downside to this is it can be difficult to prove your income, and after taxes and deductions, you often show less income on your tax return. As a result, you may qualify for a lower mortgage amount or not qualify at all when it comes to applying for a mortgage.
Self-employed mortgages are a specific type of mortgage product that is geared toward Canadians who have their own business. Today, this amounts to more than 20% of people and the number continues to rise. We understand times are changing, and we are pleased to work with business owners and help them secure a mortgage. When working with us, if you can prove your income through your personal tax Notice of Assessment forms, getting a mortgage can be as simple as securing a traditional mortgage.
SELF EMPLOYED MORTGAGES FOR ALL SITUATIONSREGARDLESS OF DEBT, INCOME, OR CREDIT
It can often be difficult to get a mortgage through the chartered banks as they typically will not “read between the lines” or evaluate self-employed individuals with a common sense approach. They require extensive proof of income, business financial statements, tax returns, proof of future revenue, and many other documents in order for you to apply for a mortgage, even if you have a co-applicant such as a spouse. This does not have to be the case, and we make getting a mortgage easier for self-employed Canadians.
Fortunately, there are options, and we offer loan programs specifically for the self-employed. Approvals are based on factors such as good credit, length of time in business, and the property type and location rather than business financials or tax returns alone. This provides you with the flexibility to secure the mortgage you need for the home you want to purchase. You work hard as a small business owner, and you shouldn’t be penalized for it when applying for a mortgage.
