Getting a Mortgage for My New Vancouver Condo over Tea

Vancouver is a wonderful place to live. It’s no wonder that our city entraps the hearts of tourists and travelers, many of which never bother to return home. Our ocean beaches and forests provide us with an absolutely glorious landscape, tall trees exude clean air and mountains provide us with nature’s most incredible jungle gym. I couldn’t want to live anywhere else in the world… and so this is what I thought to my self, until I looked into purchasing a home here. Apparently many others agree with my sentiments adoring Vancouver; and have also decided they want a home here. The problem here is this; there is not enough land between ocean and mountain. Also, both the local and foreign investors have driven housing prices up, up, up!

Saved money without spending any

So here I am in a dilemma, how do I purchase a home in one of the most expensive cities in North America with out losing my shirt! Fortunately there are some very effective mortgage professionals that work their magic in this city. Enter Rebecca Awram, a professional in the Mortgage Brokering business with whom one of my good friends referred to me. Rebecca is a Vancouver mortgage broker with Origin Mortgage DLC. I would think it is fair to say that everyone here uses mortgage brokers; the simple reason is that they can deal with several (I mean sometimes 10-12) different lenders. These lenders all have different criteria when if comes to borrowing money to purchase a home. It would be a HUGE undertaking to try and negotiate with them all on my own. So I put my faith in Rebecca and let her do her thing. I must say she was AMAZING. Easy to talk to; we chatted over a cup of my favorite botanical blend and she went to work right away. Once I found the home I wanted she was able to get me a rate far better then any of my banks. This saved me many THOUSANDS of dollars over the time I own my home. I couldn’t be happier; I now have a beautiful home that I love in a city that I love, and all thanks to my mortgage broker who made the purchase of my Vancouver area home much more affordable.
