    And again you nailed it. Really great series. I have already shown your videos with the banks comparison to some bank employees and they didn’t know their product or their competitors products as well as you did 🤣. No back arguments from them.
    Anyway. As a first time buyer I love to see this kind of content that can open a person eyes or way of thinking.
    Hopefully we’ll see some First time home buyers programs series. Or a most useful questions to ask when getting a mortgage, or types of mortgages or rent vs owning or 5% down payment options for buyers or market current status and probable direction, etc.
    great video again. Thank you.

    It would be great if you could do a video on lenders that are willing to provide mortgages to high gross debt service ratio borrowers. Not everyone has a GDS of 35% or less.

    How much does a mortgage broker charge for his services?

    If the comparison criteria you have adopted is prepayment privileges, why not look at Tangerine, they have 25/25 privilege. Also, your logic that the bank that has the best product need more channels to sell the product? It is the other way around, if the product is great, you don't need to sell it through multiple channels. You keep one channel to lower the cost and pass it on to the consumers.

    Hi Nolan, thank you for the series. I'm confused about something here. How do you claim that mortgage brokers offer free service to the buyer? There is no such thing as free, they must get paid one way or another. Whether their fees are factored into the loan or banks pay them separately, it is still going to come out of the buyer one way or another. This raises too many questions: Do they recommend the bank or non-bank service that gives them the biggest percentage? Can they still be unbiased in their recommendation when there's clearly a conflict of interest? Do the conditions of the loan affect their share? Please be honest and open about it. I hope to get an answer from you. Thanks

    Hi Nolan, great video’s. Quick question, Is it possible to still get approved for mortgage 23 months after paying off your consumer proposal?

    mortgage brokers aren't "Free" however – they get commission which is built into the mortgage

    Sorry, but seems like you're a big bank promoter. Credit unions usually have much lower mortgage rates and are as good as the banks in offering a variety of services.

    Really enjoy these videos your putting out. I am curious why you don’t mention credit unions at all? Im in BC and they generally give builders mortgages out over the big banks. Is there a disadvantage of going with a credit union?

    Information on Prepayment privileges is great but I was expecting some mention about who offers lower rates, non-banks like MCAP, First National and Home Trust tend to offer similar or higher rates than the big banks even to high quality (high credit scores, low to no debt along with higher income and downpayment levels) borrowers. Also it would be nice if there was some more information about how much they (banks vs non-banks) are willing to lend out based on a borrower's income and what their underwriting criteria is like.

    Would really like to know your thoughts on ATB here in Alberta. Mortgage is currently with them. Variable rate, up in April. The calls have begun. Lol I will be looking into Scotiabank, but if you know anything of ATB I would love to here it.
