Due to the current state of the mortgage market, many potential borrowers don’t think they qualify for a mortgage loan from a credible financial institution. Nothing could be further from the truth.
The fact is that mortgage institutions, such as ASCEND MIC, exist in part because of the vacuum created by the traditional banks and lenders, which often demonstrate restrictive policies towards mortgage approvals.
A safe alternative
One the one hand, ASCEND MIC is a licensed and registered mortgage investment corporation governed by various laws both federally and provincially. As such, we must abide by government oversight and adhere to generally accepted principles towards finance and mortgage lending.
On the other hand, ASCEND MIC is a private alternative mortgage lender, which means that we’re not governed by the restrictive policies instituted by the banks and traditional lenders. Instead, we abide by what’s called an equity-based approach to mortgage lending.
In other words, we focus on the value of the underlying property to be mortgaged, instead of the application barriers set up by the banks, in order to provide unique mortgage solutions to our valued customers. It’s just another part of the ASCEND MIC difference!
