So maybe you aren't sure what you need.  What types of mortgages are there?

The mortgage marketplace is full of financing options to fill almost any need for money. Mortgage Brokers have the greatest access to this marketplace and all of the great products to fill the needs of almost all prospective borrowers regardless of their situation. Below are some definitions of mortgage terms, and when they are best utilized based on the needs of the consumer

1st Mortgage - A 1st Mortgage is the standard for mortgages. It is a single charge against your property, with you as the Mortgagee, and the lender (bank) as the Mortgagor.

2nd Mortgage - A 2nd Mortgage is when additional money is borrowed against the property, but a 1st Mortgage is left intact. A 2nd Mortgage is usually an option for a small loan or a short term need for money. Another reason might be that the 1st Mortgage is at a very competitive rate or the prepayment penalty is very sizeable, making it unattractive to break the first mortgage. Also known as being in “2nd Place”. Most 2nd mortgages have “interest only payments” and terms of 1-3 years, as they are more for a “short term solution”.

3rd Mortgage - It is a rare occurrence to have a 3rd Mortgage on a property. Most 3rd’s are offered by high risk or Private lenders. Sometimes it is a last resort for someone to keep their house or if financial difficulties have prevented them from refinancing the entire mortgage.

Renewal - Renewal is when your mortgage term is coming due. When renewing you can have a Mortgage Broker shop the market place on your behalf to secure the best deal, as it is not necessary to renew with the same company if they are not competitive. Another reason to consult a Mortgage Broker is that renewal time may be an optimal time to consider a “refinance” as there would be no prepayment penalty at that time.

Refinance - A refinance is when additional funds are borrowed on top of the existing mortgage amount. Refinance is used in many different ways. It can be used for additional funds for renovations to improve the property or to do maintenance to keep the house functional. (new roof). Another refinance option is to consolidate consumer debt. Loans, Lines of Credit and Credit Cards can sometimes get overwhelming, and to put it all into 1 payment can be a lifesaver. A refinance will result in legal fees to “re do” the mortgage.

Switch or Transfer - A Switch or Transfer usually occurs during a renewal. Usually a month or two prior to the maturity of term, contact a Mortgage Broker to shop the marketplace on your behalf. A Switch/Transfer is the term used when the mortgage is moved, but no additional funds are required. This avoids any legal fees, as the original mortgage stays intact, it is just placed with a different lender.

Port - “Porting” allows you to take your existing mortgage with you to another property. You simply pick up the balance and rate on your current home and move it to the new property you are purchasing.

Assumption - When a home is sold, the seller may be able to transfer the mortgage to the new buyer. This is called Mortgage Assumption because the buyer takes over, or assumes, the mortgage.
This is a great selling feature if the seller's existing interest rate is below the current market rate.
