Homeowner's Kit

Is your home completely or partially paid for? You are sitting on money! Your home can be used as leverage to:

  • make your wildest dreams come true;
  • improve your quality of life;
  • increase your financial worth; or
  • consolidate your debts and reduce your payments.

If you have paid back at least 20% of the current value of your home, the Homeowner's Kit is a comprehensive and versatile financing solution that consolidates all our mortgage products, including the mortgage line of credit.

One Application, One Notary

It takes only one application to access all sources of financing. Once approved, you pay the notary fees to establish your mortgage warranty, and you don't have to visit the notary again to use any of the products in the Kit. You are free to change the nature of your financing before maturity, depending on the conditions of each product and the authorized financing limit.

An Example of How to Use the Kit

  • Let’s say you purchased a home for $200,000.
  • We financed you $150,000 (80% of the property value) amortized over 25 years.
  • A few years later, the balance of your loan is $90,000.
  • You now have access to $60,000 in financing.
  • You want to renovate your kitchen at the cost of $26,000.
  • You want to buy a new car for $22,000.

With the Homeowner’s Kit you could opt for different combinations of mortgage financing. Here are three potential scenarios.

Scenario Remaining Balance on the Current Loan: $90,000 Kitchen: $26,000 Car: $22,000
Scenario 1

Mortgage loan
5-year fixed rate term
10-year amortization

Mortgage line of credit

Mortgage loan
5-year variable rate term
5-year amortization

Scenario 2

Mortgage loan
3-year fixed rate term
15-year amortization

Mortgage line of credit
Scenario 3

Mortgage loan
5-year variable rate term
10-year amortization

Mortgage line of credit

Mortgage loan
3-year fixed rate term
3-year amortization

You choose the term, rate and payment frequency for each block of mortgage loans. For the line of credit, you can choose to pay back only the interest, a fixed amount or a percentage of the balance. In addition, each net dollar paid back automatically becomes a dollar of credit at your disposal.
