Mortgage Calculators ~ How Much Can I Afford

The shortest answer to that question is: it depends on a number of factors. The most influential factors are your gross household income, your down payment and the mortgage interest rate. Lenders will also consider your assets and liabilities. Your own lifestyle and debt comfort zone also come into play.

The calculations are based on two simple rules that lenders use to determine how much of a mortgage you can afford. The first rule is that your monthly housing costs should not exceed 35% of your gross monthly household income. Housing costs include monthly mortgage payments, taxes and heating expenses. If applicable, this sum should also include half of monthly condominium fees.
Secondly, your entire monthly debt load should not be any more than 42% of your gross monthly income. This includes housing costs, and other debts such as car payments, personal loans, and credit card payments.

Self employed

Canada's workforce is changing! Self-employed people represent a ever-growing proportion of the Canadian workforce. To help accommodate for this shift in population, mortgage lenders and insurers have released product enhancements in order to respond to this reality by making it easier for more self-employed borrowers to obtain mortgage loan insurance.

These programs not only allow for lower required down payments, but also allow self-employed borrowers to benefit from competitive interest rates.

Advantages of using a Broker

Price, service, selection, protection and the list goes on. 
Many lenders use the services of Mortgage Brokers to perform what is known as the "Origination" of the loan to meet with and pre-qualify the borrower, verify the credit and property aspects of the loan, and then provide it to them for funding.

For performing this function, the Lenders give the mortgage broker a WHOLESALE; that allows yourMortgage broker to be always competitive with those lenders that utilize their own staff to perform the function of the mortgage broker. There is never a fee to the borrower for the services of a Mortgage Broker.
