Why use a Mortgage Broker!

October 30th, 2014 No comments
Probably one of the most frequent question that I get asked, is why use the services of a mortgage broker. To list a few:
They understand mortgages terms and conditions, some mortgages unbeknown to the client are registered in a certain way which restricts you moving your mortgage in the future. Some mortgages have got higher penalties.
I see my job as knowing these restrictions and steering my client away from these mortgages. Here is a video to further explain!

In 2009, the vacancy rate in Hamilton is expected to edge lower to 3.0%

Demand for rental accommodation typically comes from youth households and other households who are not planning to own a home or have not yet saved enough for a down payment. Thus, it is important to take a look at the employment market by specific age groups and types of employment. Given that there are a number of post-secondary institutions in Hamilton, it is reasonable to expect that some of these young students who rent would also hold a part time job to supplement their living expenses. This year, part-time jobs among youth aged 15 to 24 increased 2.4 per cent.

At the same time, the labour force for this age group remained relatively unchanged from a year ago. This indicates that more youth are able to find a part time job and thus afford to be in the rental market.

Individuals usually at the First Time Home buyer stage are choosing instead to stay in the rental market until economic conditions improve.

If you were thinking about buying a rental property, now might be a good time to keep investigating the market trends.
