Spring is Sprung (hopefully) and thoughts turn to a new home or cottage.

The big question ? How do I pre-qualify for a mortgage ?

Information required to be pre-qualified for a mortgage:

Ask your employer to prepare a letter on company letterhead outlining your name, base salary or hourly rate, normal hours worked per week, position and length of service. A recent pay stub and a copy of your T4 from last year may also be required.
If commission sales, three years personal tax returns together with the Notice of Assessments from Canada Customs & Revenue Agency.
If self-employed, three years personal tax returns together with the Notice of Assessments from Canada Customs & Revenue Agency, three years business financial statements, and three years business tax returns (if applicable).
Note: New products have been launched to the marketplace where, with good credit, you can qualify for a mortgage based on your stated income*. This type of mortgage was designed for the self-employed, including contractors, freelancers, consultants, commission sales professionals, or small business owners. Talk to us about mortgage approvals specifically for the self-employed.
Social Insurance Numbers. (Optional).
At least 3 years history of residence and employment.
Know your banking information (name of financial institutions, address, and type of accounts, account numbers).
Know your assets (what you own) and their value. i.e. cash amounts, stocks, bonds, RRSPs, car.
Know your liabilities (what you owe). i.e. car loan, credit card balances, child or spousal support payments.
Please let us know about any past credit problems you may have had.
Write down a list of questions you would like to have answered.
A pre-qualification is usually good from 90-120 days depending on the lender and product. Once pre-qualified your fixed rate would also be locked in for a specified time frame. If interest rates go up the rate on your pre-qualification would apply as long as your mortgage closed within the specified time frame. If rates go down you would also benefit from the lower rates again within the specified time frame on your pre-approval.*

Good advices on getting mortgage. I would like also to tell tips for people with poor credit. How do you get an excellent mortgage loan with bad credit? The initial thing you must do is research more about these loan alternatives for bad credit and check which among them will be ideal for your situation. And when you believe you are ready, get yourself the best bad credit mortgage broker you could find to assist you. Professional mortgage lenders for bad credit are quite hard to come by. You have to be careful with who you're dealing with and make sure he's dependable. If he demands for cash in advance of a mortgage, probe further. He might be one of those so-called lenders who are merely out to con you.
