What is a Mortgage Broker?

Nova Scotia Mortgage Broker.

A Nova Scotia Mortgage Broker is an individual that is licensed to act as an intermediary between consumers and mortgage lenders to evaluate and secure mortgage financing solutions. It is important to confirm that the Mortgage Broker you are wishing to work with is employed by a licensed Mortgage Brokerage, such as DV Capital Corporation. This ensures that you are working with a firm that is provincially licensed and regulated and adheres to the Mortgage Regulations Act.

Mortgage Services Across Nova Scotia.

  • Experience: The Principal at DV Capital Corporation possesses experience across numerous Canadian provinces and has reviewed, underwrote and funded hundreds of mortgage transactions. They say that experience doesn’t cost, and that it pays. Over the years we have fine-tuned our approach, process and lender network to provide red-carpet client service to the highest degree.
  • Options: In Nova Scotia, DV Capital acts as a Mortgage Broker and does not ‘pushing a single-item menu’ from a ‘single lender’, which in theory, avoids a potential detriment to the borrower. Having an array of mortgage products and mortgage lenders at their disposal usually results in more options for the client – options are a good thing, especially when options can save you money and or turn a decline into an approval. 
  • Assistance: With a state of the art online application technology, in most cases, same-day, around the clock phone-calls, text, emails and video-appointments that spare you the burden of taking time off of work or away from your family, advising you of which documents to gather and provide up front, and guiding you throughout the approval and funding process, we define the definition of client-care.

  • CMHC Insured Purchase Financing: For those looking to purchase a home valued less than $1M and benefit from the privilege of providing less than the typical 20% minimum down payment threshold.

  • Conventional Bank Financing: Whether you are looking to purchase or refinance a principal residence, a second home, or an investment property,  we will help position you with a tailored mortgage from an ‘A Lender’.

  • Alternative Bank Financing: Creative financing solutions courtesy of ‘B Lenders’ designed for our clientele with imperfect credit, elevated debt service ratios and/or unable to verify their income to ‘A Lender’ standards. 

  • Private Mortgage Financing: A short-term product that has more flexible income and credit requirements compared to ‘A & B Lenders’ with more of an emphasis on the marketability and equity of the real estate asset.
