The Big Story: The future of condo originations

The Bank of Canada is sounding the same concerns as the federal government about the future of the condo market for buyers but also brokers.

Video transcript below:


Jemima Codrington, Mortgage Broker News
Jemima Codrington:  As Canada’s once prosperous condo market grinds to a halt, the Bank of Canada has raised the alarm over the number of condos that are still expected to begin construction. So how has  that affected client approvals?  We find out in this week’s episode of the Big Story on Mortgage Broker News.

According to the Bank’s financial systems review at the end of last year, if demand doesn’t escalate to reach the supply, the risk of a sudden correction goes up exponentially.  But just how easy is it to get a condo client approved?
 
Paolo Dipetta, Eqron Mortgage Corp. Ltd.
Paolo Dipetta:  Well for getting condo clients approved, things have changed quite a bit.  I work primarily in the private market, so I do a lot of second mortgages and it’s been a lot more difficult to find clients as more of them are more reluctant to put their money into a market that’s been really overheated as of late.
 
David Grossman, Community Financial Group
David Grossman:  There really have not been that many changes especially when you consider the A lending market, in terms of getting condo clients approved.  In the A lending market and we are talking about people who are, can be approved by a bank, those mortgages can be insured, the CMHC and the other insurers have not changed their policies as far as condos.  On the B side, they have changed and they are much more strict when it comes to lending on condos.

    On the average broker’s to-do list, creditor insurance is usually near the bottom. But as brokers look for ways to boost their bottom line, ancillary products like creditor insurance are starting to look more appealing. Still, it’s often a tough sell and that’s coming from the industry itself. Overcoming these challenges is the first step say some brokers. On today's Big Story and Part I of our look at creditor insurance, we spoke to Kelly Price,of Mortgage Protection Plan, Ray McMillan, of Home Mortgage Consultants and Mauro Di Cosola of Dominion Lending Centres Mortgage Village. Price acknowledges that brokers feel selling creditor insurance is someone else’s job and that rings true for McMillan, who says in fact that “somebody else” is also sending them referrals. While apprehension can be a stumbling block for some brokers, it’s not insurmountable, says Di Cosola.
