First Time Home Buyers
First Time Home Buyers, the Wilson Team gives you our 100% guarantee that you will receive the lowest rate from the time of application to funding as we closely monitor rate changes and advise you of any movement in lending rates. While we have excellent relationships with the five major Banks it should be noted that they have made numerous changes to their mortgage packages over the past 4 years. Changes that may affect our clients equity and pocket book should they need to make any changes to their mortgage over the term of the mortgage.
Do not rely on rates and rates only. The major banks fund the most expensive mortgages in Canada. Not necessarily rates as they are competitive but the actual fine print in the term you select and unfortunately clients don’t get to fully see it until they need to port, transfer, refinance or break that mortgage within the stated term of the mortgage when all the fees become apparent. This includes variables for lock in rates as banks work from posted rates ( 4.99% ) after the closing and monoline lenders work from best discount rates (2.99% ). It’s our job to understand your goals and get you the most superior product available in the market that satisfies your goals and budget. Whether a bank or monoline each lender is different.
The best way to get started is to fill out the on line application by clicking on the “Apply Now” button on the right. This will give us the information we need to shop the entire Canadian mortgage market and start to figure out what your goals and needs are as well as offer you some options to consider and present to you some strategies. As well, by utilizing the various Calculators we have available

The $25,000 per buyer does not HAVE to be used solely for down payment – it can be used for closing costs, paying off some debt, moving expenses, furniture, or even a vacation to celebrate!
