Mortgages for the Self-Employed
Statistics show that nearly 20% of all income earners in Canada are now self-employed. This is a large and growing demographic, which brings up the question, "Why is it so difficult to get a mortgage through a chartered bank if you're self-employed?" That's because many business-for-self owners fully utilize their allowance for expenses in lieu of extra income, something most banks will not recognize.
At Super Brokers we understand your needs and with our preferred lenders, we will find a product that is right for you.
Here are just some of the great products available:
