How Private Mortgage Investing Works
Private mortgages are loans that are generally funded by private individuals or companies. When an individual is denied by traditional lending institutions, they can receive a mortgage from a private investor. As a private mortgage investor, you become the bank. If you have access to RRSP or cash funds, you may qualify to lend funds to individuals looking for alternative mortgage options.
