Do you want to buy property that isn’t a cookie cutter single family home in the suburbs or condo downtown? The big financial institutions may refuse to work with you. They want to offer mortgages to buy properties that are easy to sell if they have to foreclose on it. They rarely extend mortgages to those who want to buy a building they’d both live or work in. Rural properties, farms and unusual homes won’t make their list, either. The only solution left for the potential buyer is a private mortgage. Do you plan on saving money by investing sweat equity in your new home? Those who want to buy fixer-uppers in need of major repairs may not be able to get a conventional mortgage. A mortgage broker can help you find lenders willing to pay for the purchase of the property as well as finance the repairs. Continental Mortgages allows you to buy your dream property, no matter what form it takes.
