Getting Approved

We Can Help You!

As a first-time homebuyer you have probably searched online to see who has great rates, but it’s a confusing market. Often, the lowest mortgage rates are not necessarily tied to the best mortgage. Discounted mortgages tend to have inflexible terms, they may charge you for paying out the mortgage before the end of the mortgage term.

Our mortgage brokers will help you understand the fine print, so you feel comfortable about the decisions you’re making. We love working with co-signers such as parents and have flexible hours. Our online application is easy and we have a simple and secure system for you to share confidential documents. You won’t need to come “into the branch” to do your personalized appointment – nor will you need to drop off documents to a specific location.

There are other online institutions that offer this – but Skip the Bank’s is unique. You’ll be dealing with genuine experts who care. Big banks tend to only care for making a quick sale. We get to know you and help you make an informed decision for your first home.

Real Mortgage Success

headshot photo of Bill and Ray

Bill and Ray always wanted to buy a home. They dreamed of a detached house with a yard for their dogs. Unfortunately, because of their budget, they were having a difficult time breaking into the housing market . Even with Ray’s recent change in employment and increased income, they were still declined by their bank.

This is where The Mortgage Centre’s Skip The Bank stepped in to help Bill and Ray. We worked out a comprehensive plan so they could have their dream detached home. The first step was to purchase a condo and in three years, they could build enough equity to buy their dream home. Before, they were at a loss on what they needed to do to achieve home ownership. No one had ever talked to them about a plan, except for The Mortgage Centre. The best part of the process was that the condo allowed for pets and they were able to take their dogs with them. They also maintained their budget and continued to save while building equity in their home.
