  6. Mortgage pre-qualification

    Option 1: Mortgage

    1. Obtain a pre-qualification letter from a lender.
      1. If you need a recommended lender – let us know
    • Tip1: when working with lenders answer truthfully but don’t volunteer info not asked.
    • Tip 2: Married couples and partners – we suggest buying each rental and getting a mortgage under one person’s name and not both. E.x. only the wife’s name.

    Option 2: Cash

    • When buying cash you will need to prepare proof of funds.
    • Proof of funds can be a screenshot of your bank account.
    • Make sure the name in the prof of funds matches the name in the offer document.

    Tip 1: Try to only show the amount needed for the purchase and not more

    Tip 2: consider opening a secondary bank account to use as the source for your proof of funds.

    Tip 3: If you main bank account is in other language than English:
    – See if you bank offers a English option of your bank account.
    – If your bank doesn’t offer it free-translate the proof of funds so seller can understand what it says. No need for a professional translation services.

    Option 3: Delayed financing

    This option is relevant if you have cash to buy BUT still want to use financing. It means to break the purchase int two steps: first-cash offer; second-bring in the mortgage right after the cash-purchase is completed.

    To accomplish this method you would need to discuss the process closely with the lender.
