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.

"After hearing those radio ads countless times, I FINALLY pulled my car over to write down the phone number and call Mark. His radio message was very clear to me. As a business owner, I did not want to put unnecessary financial strain on my family if I got sick or worse. We had a great first meeting that was very informative for me and my wife. It was a very comfortable experience and Mark enlightened us with all the things that needed doing to properly take care of our family. He helped us put all the right programs together without any pressure and we are very appreciative. We now feel reassured knowing that things have been taken care of properly and look forward to working with Mark for many years to come."

"Until recently I had no personal insurance whatsoever, and no idea on how to get the right coverage. Before I met Mark, I didn't even know what I didn't know. Mark sat me down and took the time to put together a customized plan that protects me and my family. He suggested some estate planning and tax advantaged strategies and then introduced me to the financial, legal, and tax experts who have all proven to be some of the smartest people in their respective fields. I look forward to doing a lot of business with Mark for years to come."
