Brampton Bad Credit Refinance

Refinancing Mortgages and Other Property with Bad Credit

Times have been getting tough in the recent past. Banks have restructured their lending terms and interest rates continue to rise. For property owners, refinancing is becoming a more and more attractive option for homeowners. However, if someone has a poor credit score, refinancing may not seem to be much of a possibility, including in Brampton Ontario Canada. It is advisable to get your credit report pulled and assessed through a mortgage broker. The broker can then discuss and secure your Brampton bad credit refinance with a lender who’s terms best fulfill your needs.

Benefits of Refinancing with Bad Credit

Oftentimes, people who have bad credit also have a high amount of unsecured debt. The advantage of doing a refinance is that it can save these borrowers a lot of money in interest. It gives borrowers a chance to recover from high and unfavourable rates of interest by consolidating this debt into one easy single payment.

Tips for Refinancing with Bad Credit

  • Be Realistic and Keep an Open Mind

First thing, as a borrower, you need to keep an open mind and be realistic. Do not expect to get an extremely low interest rate for refinancing, say, your mortgage. It is common to see advertisements on the media and internet from lenders saying that they can get you interest rates as low as 2%. Such interest rates are typically available for people with bad credit. In fact, if your credit score is damaged, you can be confident that you will not qualify for those interest rates. They are usually only available for borrowers with good credit.

  • Maintaining Favourable Equity in a Property

Maintaining or having some equity in your property is something that will definitely boost your chances of being able to refinance with a lender. What this means, in layman terms, is that, as a property owner you need to make sure that what you owe on the property is lower than the property’s current value. The bigger the difference between the value of the mortgage and secured debt on the property, the higher the chance you can be refinanced. Most lenders, especially conservative lenders, will not even consider you for refinancing when you owe close to the value of your property.

An important ratio that most lenders use to assess refinancing is what is referred to as, LTV or loan-to-value ratio. This is a ratio that determines the amount of equity you have in your property and helps the lender decide if you qualify for refinancing. For example, a lender may say that you need to have 15% equity in your property in order for your refinancing to be approved. This means that the borrower’s LTV ratio has to be 85% so that the lender can offer you financing up to  85% of your property’s current market value.

  • Understanding Government Insured Loans

Many lenders will not lend over 80% LTV without the loan being insured. Such a mortgage option allows the borrower to have an LTV ratio as high as 95%. However, with bad credit it is unlikely that a borrower will be approved for these high-ratio mortgages. If this is the case, that does not mean that it is the end of the road.

  • “I can’t say enough how great your company has been. Matthew, thank you so much for making all of this process so easy for us. Our bank would not help us and you were amazing.

I will highly recommend your company to anyone looking for mortgages. Thank you so much for getting creditors off or back and setting us on the right track. You guys are all amazing. I’m also so impressed that you came to us do to everything.”

  • “I just want to say ‘thank you’ to all of you, especially Matthew. The financial stress started affecting my health and my life. I could not sleep or focus at work. Now Expert Mortgage has given me control on my life by connecting me to a great lender. I have gone from being full of stress to being stress-free.”

  • “The bank would not lend money on our farm unless we showed them financial statements. Since my husband passed away, my son and I were struggling to keep the farm afloat. We just needed more time. The third mortgage you got us was the miracle we needed. You believed in us and we are so grateful. Thank you.”

  • “My pig farm always made good profit but last year was brutal for the whole industry. I fell behind on my mortgage. I showed FCC that my loss was just a temporary blip and asked them to give me some leeway but they started a foreclosure anyway. Thanks for getting me that private loan to buy me some time until I’m profitable again.”

  • “My ex-wife’s lawyer gave me 30 days to buy out her half of our house or have it put up for sale. I had no job and I was in bankruptcy. My bank manager laughed at me. I thought it was hopeless until I saw your flyer. I don’t know how you qualified me for the mortgage. You’re a miracle worker. Thank you!”

  • “We were 6 months behind on our mortgage and the Sheriff was coming in 5 days to lock us out of our home. Every other mortgage broker said NO! I can’t believe you were able to get us a second mortgage that fast. You saved our home and I will refer everyone I know to you.”

  • “The bank refused to value my property based on all 211 acres. They said that their ‘rules’ limited it to 5 acres. Personally, I think that’s biased against farmers. I didn’t know that you had lenders who would value my property on all the acres. I finally got a large enough loan to tie all my debt into one payment. Thanks!”

  • “Every time I’d walk into a bank and say the word ‘farm’ the suit on the other side of the desk would look at me like I was from another planet! They had one agricultural ‘specialist’ for the area that was not much better. Then I went to 4 mortgage brokers before I stumbled on your company. Your rates were lower than the bank.”

    M.D., Bradford, ON
  • “Our credit was destroyed after we had a bad year. We needed to expand our facility. I explained to the bank that the expansion would make us profitable. I proved it on paper. They still declined us. I never heard of your ‘no questions asked’ private loans but you gave me $500,000 with no paperwork. That was a Godsend. My wife and I appreciate it from the bottom of our hearts and we won’t let you down.”

    R.Q., Woodville, ON
  • “Once again, a big thank you for arranging our new mortgage and being able to arrange for additional funds on closing. Matthew has worked hard for me over the last few years… I have a very high level of trust in Matthew and Expert Mortgage, and will surely recommend you to anyone I know who is in need. Thank You.”
