Why is your investment property mortgage referred to as 'traditional'?

A traditional mortgage has a minimum 20% down payment — and therefore doesn't need mortgage default insurance. Also referred to as a conventional mortgage, it means that you'll have more options and flexibility, compared to a high-ratio mortgage that requires insurance and comes with higher premiums.

How are your mortgage rates affected with a property investment?

Many lenders will offer their best rates with a small premium. Our expert True North Mortgage brokers will check with many accredited lenders (not just one) and pass along our volume discount to get you the best rate for your situation.

What about your amortization?

If you have 20% to put down, have good credit and income, you'll likely qualify for a 30 year amortization (depending on the lender), which can help lower your payments. We'll quickly help you determine your best options.

A note about net worth

The requirement for a minimum net worth varies from one lending institution to another. Most lending institutions do not have a minimum net worth, however some require that you have a minimum $100,000 net worth per rental property.

Don't forget about Debt Coverage Ratio requirements

The requirement for Debt Coverage Ratio (DCR) varies from one lending institution to another. Some institutions will use rental offset for qualifying purposes, while other lending institutions will use a 1.10% debt coverage ratio — arrived at by dividing the net operating income by the debt service.

What does rental offset mean? A lending institution will calculate 50%-70% of the rental income and off-set it against the principle, interest and tax mortgage payments (PIT) you would make on the property. Any rental 'shortfall' of this calculation will be included in the Debt Ratio, and a rental 'surplus' would be added to your net worth.

For example, assume a rental property with a PIT of $1432 and rental income of $2000. Then take 70% of the $2000 income ($1400) and deduct that from the PIT ($1432). The shortfall of $32 is then added to your Debt Ratio.

We can help answer any questions, and take care of the details for you.
