U.S. Mortgage Guidelines for Canadians

How to Qualify

To qualify, you will complete a standard mortgage application and provide documentation about your income, credit, liabilities, and assets. Your Canadian credit history and income are used to qualify. Once you submit your application and the required documentation, a pre-approval can be completed within 24 hours. Once you have an accepted purchase offer, the mortgage processing typically takes a minimum 30-45 days so quick possessions are not possible unless you purchase with cash.

Down Payment Requirements

Your down payment amount depends on various criteria, including credit score, type of property, and the state of where the property is located. With healthy credit, you can expect a minimum down payment of 20%-25% for a primary residence, second home, or an investment property. Owning multiple properties may require larger down payments. The down payment can come from your personal Canadian savings, or by accessing the equity from a Canadian property with a mortgage or home equity line of credit.

Property Types

We provide mortgage financing for residential properties being used as your principle residence if you are living in or moving to the United States, second home or seasonal properties for those escaping the cold Canadian winters, rental properties used exclusively for investment purposes, and nearly all types of commercial properties. We can provide financing ranging from $50,000 to over $100 million for single family homes, condominiums, and commercial properties.

Products and Terms

Mortgage products in the U.S. differ from Canada in a number of ways. U.S. mortgages offer longer fixed terms of 15 to 30 years with very low rates and adjustable rate mortgage products with shorter terms that will move with the market. Most mortgage products are fully open so you can pay them off at any time without penalty. Our partners offer fixed rate mortgage products, adjustable rate products, and home equity lines of credit.

U.S. Mortgage Interest Rates

Interest is accrued monthly in the U.S., while in Canada interest is accrued semi-annually. U.S. mortgage products can be fixed for longer terms with very low rates such as 15 or 30 years. ARM or adjustable rate mortgages are available with shorter terms including 3 year, 5 year, 7 year, and 10 year terms with amortization periods up to 30 years. These rates are locked in for the first term and will then adjust yearly up or down based on the market rate.

Closing Costs and Expenses

The costs associated with acquiring a mortgage in the U.S. can be higher than in Canada. There are application and mortgage origination fees charged by U.S. banks and lenders. These can range between 1% to 3% depending on the type of transaction. Most mortgages are fully open and do not have prepayment fees for early payoff. Other expenses you can expect include appraisal, inspection, and title closing costs.
