Buying Your Next Home?

In your busy life, you probably feel the need for speed.

Your next mortgage is likely a little different than your first. Here's what you need to know, and how we can help you save time and cash — fast.

Just what you need. A speedy process to seal the deal (and the savings).

Getting your next house is a whole other level of exciting. There's a lot to consider, as you juggle mortgages and decisions this time around. Your better rate is more important than ever, and the right mortgage will help you grow your financial dreams.

What are the next-mortgage details you'll need to consider?

Assuming you have an existing mortgage on a primary residence, you have a few options to think over for your next purchase, depending on your situation or qualifying details:

  • Do you want to keep your existing home to rent it?
  • Are you selling your existing home to move into your next one?
  • Do you want to sell your home first, or find a new one first?
  • Do you want to use your current home-equity towards your next home purchase?
  • What is your down payment source this time around?

There are even more scenarios that may apply — and we can help you quickly sort through them to find your best next-home mortgage strategy.

Is this your first home purchase? Your details will be a bit different, and there may be rebates and programs available to help out.

The 5 important steps for your next home purchase:

  1. As soon as you're thinking about your next move, talk to us. We can help answer important questions (in your preferred language) about your particular scenario, including any pre-payment penalties involved, down payment options, and possible closing costs and bridge financing. We'll outline the options to help make your decisions clearer.
  2. Get pre-approved for your mortgage amount! Your pre-approval will allow you to find the home that fits your budget, plus you can hold your best rate for up to 120 days.
  3. Go home shopping!
  4. Bring your conditional offer details back to your TNM broker, who will finalize your full mortgage approval with your best-possible rate, and outline your closing costs. Here's a handy checklist of the docs you'll need to provide for lender approval.
  5. Close the deal. Once you have full mortgage approval, we stick with you right to the end, handling the paperwork until the mortgage is advanced (in coordination with your real estate agent and solicitor).

Need a real estate agent referral? We can help with that too, with our trusted, long-standing relationships in the industry.

What turn-around time can I expect on my mortgage approval?

We really know mortgages, so we're fast. Every situation is different, but we're on top of any questions or steps in the process. We'll get the deal done in a time-frame that works for you.

But don't take our word for it, check out our 5-star reviews from our busy, happy clients.

How is my down payment different than for a first-time mortgage?

Depending on your situation, you may be using equity gained from your existing home, or from the sale of said home — which could help increase the down payment amount towards your next home purchase.

Or, your next-home may still require other down payment sources, such as from personal savings or through a monetary gift.

Depending on the next-home price, you may be able to place as little as 5% down. Of course, any amount under 20% down will require mortgage default insurance (as a high ratio mortgage), and we'll let you know the premiums involved.

The process of switching my mortgage was made easy by TNM. Excellent communication and explanation. Received a much better rate, and will save thousands in the long haul.
