We Have PC Financial Mortgages, but Suggest Secondary Lenders

Best of all, your Ontario Mortgage Centre will offer you unbiased advice while you compare products since we work for you, not the lender.
How Can Mortgage Centre Offer Mortgage Rates Lower Than PC Financial?
If you read my recent post Lower Rate CIBC Mortgages at Mortgage Centre, you know that CIBC is affiliated with The Mortgage Centre and offers us discounted mortgage rates to compete with the more competitive secondary lenders in Ontario. Since PC Financial and CIBC are also affiliated, Presidents Choice Financial mortgages offer rates which are slightly lower than the same CIBC mortgage rates that The Mortgage Centre can offer. One might wonder why CIBC or PC Financial would offer mortgage brokers access to lower rates than their own employees, but the answer is a 5-letter word which all corporations strive to make, save, and invest – MONEY!
Why Are Presidents Choice Financial Mortgage Rates Lower Than CIBC?
Many Canadians are aware that PC Financial has an affiliation with CIBC since PC Financial banking clients can withdraw money at any CIBC teller free of charge. If they are affiliated, then why are PC Mortgage rates lower than that of CIBC? You could also ask yourself why Koodo cell phone rates are seemingly cheaper than Telus (Telus owns Koodo). As mentioned in my post about lower CIBC mortgage rates, CIBC and other big financial institutions are on the hook to pay huge expenses each year. Buildings, employees, and advertising are huge overhead costs which must be paid for in some way. A typical CIBC branch is an office building with a significant amount of square-footage and employees, costing a great deal to operate each year. A PC Financial Kiosk, on the other hand, is relatively small and located inside Loblaws, Great Canadian Superstore, or Zehrs grocery store with only 1-2 employees. This is why CIBC mortgage rates, even the lower rates offered by Mortgage Centre will always be slightly higher than PC Financial Rates. While the low overhead costs allows Presidents Choice Financial to offer more attractive interest rates than the big banks, they still must pass the overhead costs onto the customer. This can be done through service fees or other banking charges, but in the mortgage industry, it is hidden in the interest rate.
Does a PC Financial Mortgage Offer the Lowest Mortgage Rates in Ontario?
While a PC Financial mortgage offers a much lower interest rate than the posted rate at CIBC or any other big bank in Canada, your Ontario mortgage broker can usually find a secondary lender with even lower rates than PC Financial. This is because a secondary lender specializes in mortgages and has none of the overhead costs that a big bank like CIBC or even a small bank like PC Financial must pass onto the borrower through a higher interest rate.
