Personal Mortgages

You love your home. We love finding you the right mortgage plan.

 

There's a lot to consider when buying a home. At Chinook Financial, we help you find the best mortgage option to suit your budget. Looking to refinance to access or save some cash? Let’s get you on the right mortgage plan, with fast approvals and competitive rates. The best mortgage plans will always fit your needs today and your financial goals for tomorrow, without leaving you house poor.

 

Is your down payment less than 20% of the purchase price of the home? If so, you’ll require a high-ratio mortgage. These mortgages have to be approved by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) or Genworth Corporation (formerly GE) and mortgage insurance is required. Not to worry, we can help you through this entire process.

 

Looking for a shorter term mortgage, need access to extra cash or take advantage of lower rates? There may be penalties when paying off a mortgage early. At Chinook Financial, we make it easy to get more equity, financing for capital, or reduce your monthly payments while minimizing the fee impact to your budget.

 

Whether to take a fixed rate or variable rate mortgage may depend on the stability of your income and your comfort level if interest rates start to rise. Explore our mortgage options, use the mortgage calculator to help figure out what you can afford and then tap into our experienced and helpful team to find the plan that suits your personal situation best!
