Mortgage Insurance

Mortgage Insurance

There is a better alternative

Watch the investigative report by CBC Marketplace here.

Most homeowners put the finishing touches on the closing documents with mortgage insurance - typically from the bank or lender financing the deal. Mortgage insurance is used to secure the loan by making funds available to pay the balance of the mortgage in the event of death.

It makes good sense to cover debts with insurance. There is a better and less costly alternative to mortgage insurance. It's called Life Insurance.

A life insurance policy costs less and provides many additional and important benefits.

With bank mortgage insurance, coverage decreases as the mortgage decreases yet the cost of premiums shows no corresponding decline. Effectively, the cost per $1,000 of coverage increases as this type of insurance will only pay the balance of the mortgage outstanding at death. With life insurance, your payout remains fixed throughout the term.

Life insurance pays more than just the bank. Bank mortgage insurance typically pays the balance of the mortgage outstanding so only the bank gets paid. With life insurance, there's something left for your family and loved ones.

If you switch mortgage providers, you will usually need to re-qualify for bank mortgage insurance with the new financial institution. Given that you will be older, rates will increase. If your health has deteriorated, you may not even qualify for mortgage insurance. Life insurance remains valid no matter how many times the mortgage is refinanced or moved.

Bank mortgage insurance is typically more expensive than life insurance. It is also subject to Provincial Sales Tax, whereas life insurance is not. Homeowners who are healthy and have a healthy family history, receive discounts on life insurance premiums.

What Our Clients say

"Mark has been helping me with Life Insurance and Critical Illness for over 10 years. Like most people, I find it difficult to deal with these issues and take care of them properly to make sure that my family is safe and secure in the future. My previous experience with life insurance salesmen left me feeling pretty cynical and fearful. Enter Mark Halpern - He has an amazing array of innovative products, he explains things so that you really get it, and absolutely no pressure - I kid you not. On one occasion, he even advised against purchasing a product! Look, the last thing I want to sound like is an infomercial, but for Mark, I will make an exception. Life insurance is critical and you want to deal someone who has knowledge, integrity, and compassion. Mark Halpern is the man."
