Are You New to Canada?
(We can hep you buy your dream home)

Welcome to Canada! Being a recent immigrant doesn’t necessarily mean you need to wait to purchase a home. If you have been in Canada for less than five years, have landed immigrant status or valid work permit, and have been employed in Canada for a minimum of three months, you can qualify for a mortgage. You’ll need a Letter of Employment, recent pay stubs, and verifiable bank statements from a recognized financial institution. This can include a financial institution from your country of origin if you have been in Canada for less than 12 months.

How It Works:

Step 1: Initial Consultation

Come in or call and arrange for a private consultation to assess your current situation and your home ownership goals. We will assess your credit and together we can make a determination if the time is right to buy a home. If you are not ready for whatever reason we’ll work with you and explain what needs to be done to prepare so you can get your home as soon as possible.

Step 2: Application and Documents

We will assist with all of the documents required in order to complete your successful application. Once that’s complete you will go through the pre-approval process and have lenders fighting for your business. We then work with you to look over the various options so you can make an informed decision.

Step 3: Finding Your Home

Once you have your pre-approval you can look for a home with confidence. You’ll know what your purchase price range is and if you need an income suite or not. We suggest working with a professional local realtor to assist in finding the perfect home in the right neighbourhood.
