    Everyone wants to make sure that they are getting the best possible deal when trying to find a mortgage Toronto. I mean, a mortgage isn't like a candy bar. You won't just pay on it once and be finished with it. You will pay on your mortgage for fifteen or thirty years, so if the payments aren't something you think you can afford in the long run; it will only cause you stress and heartache in the long run to get it. Do how do you know if you've actually gotten the best mortgage deal? Check out our tips to find out!


    1. Stay within Your Price Range

    Know what you can pay on your mortgage payments each month without limiting yourself, and stick to this. Take into consideration the price of your other bills, what you do each month that costs money, how much your gas costs usually are, etc. When you figure all of that out, your mortgage Toronto payment should be no more than what is left over. The lower, of course, the better, because then you will have extra money. Never go over what you decide you can easily pay per month for your mortgage Toronto, however, because chances will be higher that you will end in a foreclosure.

    2. Check the Interest Rate

    Remember to keep the interest rate in mind. You will want to find the lowest possible rate because in essence, this means that you will pay less in the long run. It also helps to keep your payments down. A normal mortgage Toronto interest rate will run anywhere between 2.24% and 6.30%. Anything higher than that is likely not in your best interest, but if you luck out and find something lower, well, that's certainly a good deal.

    3. Make Sure Your Credit Is Accurate

    Before you apply for a loan, get a credit report and double check that everything on there is accurate. Sometimes things will end up on your credits that aren’t even yours as a result of credit fraud or mistakes in billing at various places. If you find something that shouldn't be on your credit, make sure you dispute them right away in order to have the best credit score you can possibly have, which will help to ensure you a lower interest rate.

    4. Understand the Varying Features of the Mortgage

    Interest rate isn't the only thing you need to look at. You should also check out the varying features of your mortgage. Can you make additional payments? Are there penalties for early refinancing? Can you take it with you when you move? What type of loan is in your best interest? Make sure you ask all of these questions before settling on any mortgage Toronto.

    If you keep these things in mind you should be able to make sure you have the best mortgage Toronto deal you can possibly get in your specific life circumstances. Remember to take your time, be patient, and never jump at the first loan offered. Good luck!

  • Reviews of Malaysia Property

    Tagged in: Untagged 

    I think that it's quite interesting to note that while the Malaysian real estate market remains as cut-throat as ever it is also is quite profitable for those who are masters in the game of property investments. Every since I started writing property reviews I have gotten tremendous feedback from people who enjoy reading my little snippets on the Malaysia real estate market.

    But I beg to differ...

    There are some pockets of growth as far as the Malaysia real estate market is concerned. I really like properties in Mont Kiara, Sentul and Bangsar. Upmarket property is actually quite easy to sell, and you don't need to deal with bottom-of-the-barrel scrapers who decide based on price. It's never good to deal with the mass market.

    So my advice to new real estate agents is to focus on high value customers. Don't deal with peasants. End of rant.

  • Can we expect growing market for alternative mortgage lending in the New Year?

    Can we expect growing market for alternative mortgage lending in the New Year?

    The Council of Mortgage Lenders expected that the banks and other financial institutions may lend 8.3% more in 2013.   


    According to the recent prediction of the mortgage intermediaries, the bridging industry may grow by 36% by the middle of this year. The bridging industry may grow four times faster than the mainstream mortgage market.


    The West One Broker Sentiment Survey states that there has been an annual growth of 65% in the end of the third quarter of 2012. 


    However, the mainstream market is not growing fast. The bank and other financial institutions are not in a state to lend more due to limitation of funds and capital adequacy rules. 


    The market is looking for extra funds and even the well conceived investment plans of the small business are completely ignored by the banks. Therefore, the borrowers are looking for various types of alternative sources of finance, for instance bridging loan.

  • Is it viable and timely to connect property pricing with property valuation?

    At present, property owners are free to fix the price.

    Is it viable and timely to connect property pricing with property valuation?

    By so doing, there would be less trouble in price changing. Also, banks will find less hassle to process loan when the price is already predetermined.

     Certainty and reliability will be attained towards better co-operation between the purchaser, vendor and the bank. 

     

  • Separate Property Account for Purchaser and Vendor

    I have posted a similar topic concerning the risk of falling prey to the sweet talk of so called property agents telling you everything is possible, when, you finally discover that what they say and what you read in the letter of appointment of agent is contradictory to each other.

    Nowadays, agent charged commission, with or without sale.

    In fact, no commission is chargeable, since no work, no pay !

     It would be almost impossible to find, if an agent is not collaborating with an inside person to trick a vendor into believing that he has a genuine purchaser with the purpose that the vendor pays him the commission first, regardless of whether the deal fails.

    This is an uninsured risk which unfortunately falls to the vendor as property owner. 

    Some even collect a booking fee. In fact, only a nominal fee should be payable towards the defrayment of advertisement fees with the production of receipts as proof of advertisement.

  • Property agent vs agent's company letter of appointment

    Have just come across an experience where a property agent charges 3% for commission. If the deal is aborted, then it is 1.5%.

    Imagine the irony of such agent fees and they put the  Registered Valuer's endorsement of their registration number to blanket ride this ridiculous charges.

    This is almost unbelieveable given that commission is only meant when the sale is completed not when it is not successful.

     This explains why houseowners decide to sell without agent.

    Won't be surprise if this is a dying trade very soon !

  • Property Pricing Factor

    In most instances, not in many words, a purchase is as much as the property and usually pricing is tagged from the price before sale.

     

    In my opinion, a 1st time owner should be equally adequate to determine the price of sale, especially if property valuation is determined by loan repayment with the years passing together with bank interests.

     

    Surely, this is a factor which sale price is much a factor to be considered.

     Many a times, we hear of comments and remarks of sales of property as marketing property.

     Are all sales a transformation of how the market rules are followed ?

    So far, there is yet any of such rules for public information.

    In my opinion, market rules are defined in the way the public see as reliable and sustainable.  What do you think ?

    You may write in a comment.  No rules on commenting unless you are not.

     There is a saying, 'don't put all your eggs in one basket'.

    Some say, property value and demand is what makes the property sector grow year by year.

    Others say, it is a combination of various factors and support from all.

     In my opinion, economic growth is the sum total of every effort made to promote and sustain growth, whether short term or long term.

  • Koi Kinrara late delivery of vacant possesion.Part 2

    Adamshfoo
    Adamshfoo on 22:41, Aug 3, 2010
    Tagged in: Untagged 

    Thank you for the comment earlier.Yes i have seen the housing tribunal to calim my 100% money.I think the developer finds the 'loophole' in the agreement.

    The reason is the housing tribunal only got the authority to claim from the developer if late delivery after any S&P signed after the date of APRIL 2007 .

    Unfortunately my S&P is signed on FEBRUARY 2007,that means the housing tribunal has no authority to claim the late payment for me.This is due to my property is a service apartment(commercial land but built a condo, that means it doesn't have to go through housing goverment approval).What the housing tribunal suggest is to employ a lawyer to sue them and claim the money through civil court and he guarentees i will get the full amount.

    My worries is that this would take at least a year going in and out of court and by the time i get the money is it worth it?

     That is what the developer counting us to do that mena we don't want the trouble and settle for less from the developer.They offer us the 70%(i believe they know this would happen that is why they dare to offer me this)

    Please advice should i take the money at 70% or get as much houseowner attention that has the same situation as me and complain to the relevant authorities?

    I bought a new service apartment in Puchong called Koi Kinrara. According to the S&P, the developer should deliver vacant possession in 36 months or they have to pay penalty charges 10% calculated on daily charges. Now the developer is offering me to settle at 70% payment because they are late in delivering me the vacant possession for 5 months. Any other house owner encounter this problem?I need to know others as well because I estimated about 300 house owners are late in getting also the vacant possession.

    Please let me know your details so we can solve this together.

    Investment in strata title property - a tool to create more units.

    How to get started in investing in property?  A lot of investors  never find out this option. This is because they are no aware of this concept of strata property.  A lot of my members share with us the joy of owning a property, using the same of money available, normally, this is their monthly rent.

    Investment in strata property is a good way to save. This is for those has a monthly saving of RM 500.00. This is a small way to commence to invest in a small unit, say, the cost of the property is  RM 60,000.00. With a monthly rent of  RM 350.00. This rental shall cover your loan.

    How to purchase more or bigger unit?

    Say, you can afford to pay off  in 10 years time. The property price shall increase by 5% every year. The value of the property is RM 110,000.00  You can see the gain that you are getting.

    Since you have settled the property, with the property title, you can buy a bigger unit. Use this unit as the down payment, some developers are willing to accept your unit as down payment.

    This strategy  has been carried out a number of my member in Kuching. This is a good way to start your investment in property.
