BUILDING NORTHERN COMMUNITIES, ONE MORTGAGE AT A TIME.
Looking for a mortgage that fits you perfectly? You’ve come to the right place. From first time to lifetime, we have all kinds of flexible mortgage options to suit your needs.
All of our mortgages are approved at your local Northern Credit Union branch, where we can help guide you through the various options and repayment plans available to you. We love building communities in this way. In fact, helping Northerners into new homes is one of the most rewarding ways we can serve you.
Before you apply for a mortgage, we suggest that you check out our Mortgages Checklist. It has everything you’ll need to know before buying a home.
Find the Right Mortgage for you
As Northerners, we have a lot in common. But despite our similarities, we each have unique goals and needs. The mortgage that works best for your neighbour isn’t necessarily going to work for you over the long haul, and vice versa.
That’s why Northern offers its members a variety of mortgages with flexible rates, terms and repayment options, as well as free pre-approvals with a guaranteed rate for up to 120 days. Here are some of the options you’ll have to consider:
Conventional Mortgages are mortgages made with a down payment of 20% or more when purchasing your home, which means you won’t have to pay additional mortgage insurance costs.
High-Ratio Mortgages are for mortgages with a down payment of 5% to 20%, where additional mortgage insurance needs to be purchased. This amount can also be rolled into your mortgage.
Fixed-Rate Mortgages offer peace of mind and no surprises. Locking in one rate for the duration of your mortgage term, you can budget for consistent payments and easily track your progress.
Variable-Rate Mortgages provide a floating rate tied to the prime lending rate. As prime rates go up and down, your rate will fluctuate. When the market is stable, this option is typically less costly.
Open Mortgages mean that you can pay your mortgage off or sell your home at any time without penalty. Rates are typically higher, but if you want to avoid being tied down, expect to sell your home soon or anticipate making a large lump sum against your mortgage in the near future, this is the option for you.
Closed Mortgages tie you to a fixed term in exchange for a lower interest rate. You’ll know exactly what your financial expectations are, plus you’ll have the option to make
