About Me

About Me

Hi, my name is Bak, welcome to my website!

Professionally I am a self-employed mortgage agent licensed under Mortgage Intelligence, one of the largest and most respected national mortgage brokerages in Canada. I am directly supporting the Ontario East Region but I am available to support clients across Canada if needed.

I bring over 12 years of B2C & B2B client management experience, over 7 of those years are providing financial advice. My experience in finance, real-estate, and lending provide me with the tools to best support clients and my knowledge of mortgage lending regulations allows me to support the simplest to the most complex financial situations one may have. I advise my clients accordingly with my own structured solutions tailored to each individual client.

My passion for becoming a mortgage expert comes from my personal experience with mortgages and understanding how complex it can be knowing the rules and regulations are not transparently available to the public as I believe it should be. It created this desire for me to help others understand the overall aspects of living with a mortgage and what government regulations are required to support them to achieve their financial goals and needs. 

If you or someone you know would benefit from my expertise please do not hesitate to contact me.

7 reasons to use a Mortgage Broker over your Bank

Check it out

First-time home buyer

Here’s to buying like a pro the first time!

Buying your first home is one of the most important financial decisions you’ll ever make and getting the right advice from a mortgage professional is a great way to start.

Before you start looking for your dream home, your Mortgage Intelligence professional can help you find out how much you can qualify for so you can shop with confidence. They’ll explain the process and even assist in getting you a mortgage pre-approval so you can take advantage of today’s low rate environment by locking in today’s rate for you for a set period of time, typically 90 to 120 days.

Understanding your down-payment options is important as you get ready to buy your first home. This is right time to consult with your mortgage professional who can explain the requirements and options available to first-time buyer only when it comes to down-payment. Generally, the min down-payment required depends on the purchase price with the min being 5% down. For homes $500,000 and under 5% down is the min required. For homes over $500,000 but less than $1 million, you need 5% down-payment on the first $500,000 and 10% for any amount over that. If your purchase price is $1 million or more, a minimum 20% down-payment is required. Mortgages with less than 20% down are subject to default insurance which is usually added to the mortgage amount.

At Mortgage Intelligence, we work with over 60 lenders from major banks to private lenders. Your mortgage professional gives you access to multiple lenders and finds the right mortgage for you with only one application. They help you navigate the process, explain your options and present you with mortgage solutions that best meet your need. Having the right combination of mortgage features, privileges and rate is key. The right mortgage goes beyond just the rate--it's important to also consider term, prepayment options, refinancing penalties, restrictions, and fees.

Your mortgage professional will not only find the right mortgage for you but also provide strategies to help you pay your mortgage off faster and shave thousands off interest costs in the process.

Rental

Are you considering buying a multiplex property in the near future to enter the rental market? While this type of investment is a great way to diversify your income and put money aside, it is important to be well prepared. Buying income-producing real estate is more than an investment, it also means starting a business. But where should you begin? Before you get started, it is important to quantify and analyze the financial implications to ensure that your project is viable and profitable. The return on investment is calculated by subtracting the operating expenses from your income. This amount is then divided by the down payment on the building. The percentage obtained represents the annual return, which should ideally be higher than the mortgage rate.

Another aspect to consider is your ability to manage risk. Rental real estate does not guarantee constant profits, so it is important to assess your tolerance for risk and financial uncertainty.

The financial aspect is not the only aspect to consider. When entering the rental real estate market, you have to manage tenants and take care of the building maintenance. It is therefore important to be familiar with tenants’ rights in Québec and to have an interest for manual work. This will greatly help!

The down payment required for your project will depend on the number of units in your plex and whether you want to live in the building. Usually, you need a down payment equal to 20% of the property value. However, if you intend to live in one of the two apartments of a duplex, the required down payment is 5% and that will increase to 10% in the case of properties with 3 or 4 units.

Mortgage Intelligence brokers are there to help you make the right decisions. They can give you advise and guide you through the investment process. Contact us today to start making your project a reality.
