Poor Credit Mortgage Options

Mortgage lenders will consider mortgage options for borrowers with poor credit history. Homeowners that have built up home equity over time will be able to leverage it to pay off high interest debts. When paying down high interest debt, poor credit borrowers will start to repair their credit score. While private lenders tend to charge higher interest rates and fees for the added risk of the mortgage, they usually specialize in shorter term mortgages. The lender is hoping the mortgage loan will help improve poor credit scores so borrowers will be able to qualify for more traditional bank mortgages at lower rates.

Poor credit mortgages can be used for;

  • New Purchase – Live the Canadian dream or diversify your asset allocation by purchasing a new home, second home or rental property.
  • Repair Your Credit – Build your credit with consistent monthly payments, or payoff all high interest debts and start new with one of the best low interest borrowing options in the market.
  • Debt Consolidation – Homeowners with bad credit can take advantage of their home’s equity and quickly have access to funds. Consolidate high interest debts and save money with a lower rate private mortgage while repairing bad credit.
  • Renovation Even with poor credit, homeowners may have to renovate their biggest investment. A poor credit mortgage leverages the home equity you have built into your home to pay for renovations that you need and increase the value of your home.
  • Self-EmployedIt’s not easy being self-employed and having to wear many different hats. Poor credit can result in addition to declared lower income. Our mortgage brokers will assess your financial situation to assess poor credit mortgage opportunities.

Other mortgage options

Homeowners have choices and can consider options to leverage their home equity. Depending on the product, these options may have slightly higher interest rates.

Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)

There are different products that provide flexibility for the most suitable mortgage loan options such as home equity lines of credit or HELOC. A HELOC still enables access to the home’s equity, just in a different way. Instead of a single (or lump sum) payment, a HELOC provides on-going access to certain amount of money, similar to a credit card, with a lower rate. The amount of the HELOC depends on the value of the home.

The benefit of a line of credit is that payments are interest only payments and homeowners can access it when needed. Downsides include variable interest rates and access to the total amount of the HELOC, that could lead to more unwanted mortgage debt. That being said, there are opportunities to lock in rates to protect monthly mortgage payments.

Private Mortgage

When homeowners cannot qualify a mortgage refinance through a bank mortgage debt consolidation or a home equity line of credit (HELOC), private mortgages may be an alternative. Since private mortgage lenders will secure a mortgage debt consolidation against a home, the interest is usually lower than high interest debts like credit cards.

Private lenders usually charge a higher interest rate and fees than a bank, given the higher level of risk, however this option still reduces interest costs over time. This is because these lenders understand that situations exist such as quick turnaround for financing, bad credit, non-stated income and non-conventional properties.

Typically, private mortgages are shorter term products and only require the interest portion to be repaid. Private lenders evaluate risk differently than traditional lenders and will consider the borrower’s ability to repay that is beneficial to self-employed and people with bad credit. Private lenders can also provide debt consolidation options through second mortgages.

Second Mortgage

Borrowers unable to qualify for a mortgage refinance leveraging equity, could consider a second mortgage. A second mortgage will provide the option to consolidate loans with higher interest into a lower rate option. While interest rates for second mortgages tend to be higher, it will save money on interest costs over time. Speak to a mortgage broker to understand the costs associated with a second mortgage.

Reverse Mortgage

An option available to homeowners 55 and older are reverse mortgages that provide access to the home’s equity without having to sell. Reverse mortgages allow homeowners to borrow up to 55% of the value of the home. The concept of this mortgage is essentially a reverse loan that means there are no payments required. Payments will be made either in monthly payments or in a lump sum payment to homeowners. Homeowners will pay the reverse mortgage loan when they move, sell or the last borrower dies. Typically, the interest rate is higher, and there are fees additional associated with reverse mortgages.
