Can You Buy A House with An Alberta Private Mortgage?

Alberta Private Mortgage Can Help You Buy A House Even With Poor Credit

Banks generally require a credit score of 680 or above, in order to put a mortgage in place. This, of course, bars many from the mortgage from a bank or traditional lender. Although it is only one of the requirements for obtaining a mortgage, the does play a large factor when attempting to get a traditional mortgage.

It isn’t just poor credit that will keep an otherwise worthy buyer from purchasing a home.  Many people such as contract workers or self-employed, for whatever reasons, do not disclose all their income or have not been in a contract or self-employed long enough (typically able to show 2 years of steady contract or self- employed earnings) to qualify for the traditional mortgage.

Typically, an Alberta Private Mortgage is only required for the a two year period which allows the buyer time to establish proof that they are conscientious and can and do make their mortgage payments on time, at which time, they can apply for a traditional mortgage from a bank or other lender and obtain a current rate.
