Mortgage News Canada: How Aleem Became THE Mortgage Specialist
Our Story: When I got my first mortgage, I did not know my options. I did what hundreds of thousands of Canadians do, I went into my bank and did what they told me to do. I didn’t know any better, I didn’t know how to shop for a mortgage and what questions to ask.
A year later, due to some unforeseen circumstances, I needed to sell my property, and it ended up costing me dearly in penalties and hidden fees, that wiped out my initial down payment.
This did not sound fair to me at all, I had followed my bank’s advice, they never said anything about the cost of getting out of my agreement, nor did they mention a slew of other things. I learned that my bank had no obligation to educate me on the mortgage process, and on the products that they were selling me. I made a promise to myself that day that I would never let something like this happen to me ever again.
As I started to research, I was shocked and repulsed to learn that this is one of the ways that banks made money. Thousands of Canadians, just like me, were paying un-necessary interest and other costs, costs that they were not even made aware of, and it was happening every single day.
I want to make sure that this does not happen anymore and this why I take the approach of educating my clients on all aspects of a mortgage, so that you have a clear picture and are making an informed decision with both of your eyes open.
I strive to take the stress out of the challenging process it has become of obtaining financing so that you can focus on what you are passionate about, your business, your family, and enjoy your life.
I’m very passionate about helping you understand your options when it comes to financing. Yes, you do have choices to make. The financing climate is very fluid, and there are changes to policies and products occurring literally overnight. It is not only important to be educated in order to be able to ask the right questions, but also to have the relationships in place to be able to obtain the right answers.

Regardless of whether you are a first time home buyer, or a seasoned investor on the residential or commercial side, your immediate concerns are
“am I impacted by the new rules and policy changes”
“will I get approved for my financing”.
Most of the time, you forget to ask some very important questions, that come next If the answers to # 1 and # 2 are a Yes You should be asking yourself .
“now that I am approved, what are the lender’s policies that I should be aware of.
Are there any hidden costs, especially if I need to get out my financing contract? Do I understand the fine print?”
The reality is that most Canadians, sign up for a 5 year fixed mortgage (about 75%) , and most Canadians also end up breaking their mortgage contract early (about 67%). This triggers penalties. And these penalties are calculated very differently among the various lenders that are out there. I help you understand how each lender does this, along with some other clauses in your mortgage contract that you need to be aware of, that can end up costing you thousands of dollars like it did me, if you are not aware of them.
