No job

by Colleen
(Red Deer, AB Canada)

Hello, I would really like to get into real estate investing. I have been a landlord in the past but now find I'm out of work. I have plenty of money but no income to qualify for a mortgage.

Do you have any suggestions about a way around this?

Thanks for the question!

The Canadian banks make it very difficult for you. They want income. A while back one of the big banks was lending based on "net worth" and "credit score" but I haven't heard of that lately. Your best bet is to reach out to a very active mortgage broker, perhaps they have alternative financing options available through private money that still meet your needs.
