A phenomenon that brokers have already started to question is raising eyebrows at the IMF, now suggesting that the growing use of uninsured mortgages could pose a problem.

    The headline says "Unsecured" Mortgages ... is that not meant to be "Uninsured"?

    Great question Holly, I was wondering exactly the same thing. It was the headline that caught my eye for sure...

    Exactly! "Unsecured" mortgages should raise more than the IMF's eyebrows!

    What does it mean unsecured mortgage ? If it is unsecured then it is not a mortgage . Let the IMF make it clear the unsecured mortgage ..........

    I believe "unsecured mortgage" means our real estate market is overvalued at this time and with all time low interest rate, the mortgages that lenders put on their books at this time may become over 100% financing when real estate value dropped, especially when interest rates started to increase in future. This happened 1990 to 1996, the last Ontario recession, real estate properties that were appraised in 1989 were substantially higher, some properties dropped by 40-50% during our last recession. The property value differences becoming "unsecured mortgages".

    Don't you get it? It's simple Uninsured or Unsecured = Canadian Real Estate Circus.
