Lenders You Can Trust

IK Financial - Mortgage Articles
Many people believe that major banks are the only option when it comes to securing a mortgage. At IK Financial, we have access to a wide range of financing options for our clients. From A-lenders to private lenders, and understanding the differences between these lending institutions can help find the right financing option for various home-financing needs. We strongly believe that by educating on options, we helping clients make informed decisions that can make all the difference in securing a successful transaction.

Below are 4 main types of lenders that you might work with when thinking of getting a mortgage:

A-Lenders (Major Banks)

A-lenders are banks that have a strong financial standing and are able to offer loans to borrowers with a good credit history and sufficient collateral. They typically offer the lowest interest rates, making them the most popular option for borrowers who meet their requirements. However, A-lenders have strict qualification criteria, which can make it difficult for some borrowers to obtain a mortgage.


B-lenders are more willing to work with borrowers who have a less-than-perfect credit history or who do not have sufficient collateral. B-lenders may charge higher interest rates and extra fees at closing due to the higher risk associated with lending.

Credit Unions

Credit unions offer many of the same financial products and services as banks, including checking and savings accounts, loans, and credit cards. Credit unions are known for offering competitive rates and fees, as well as personalized service to their members.

Private Lenders

Private lenders are individuals or entities that provide loans to borrowers. They lend their own money, or they may act as intermediaries between borrowers and investors who are looking to fund loans. Private lenders may offer loans to borrowers who do not qualify for loans from traditional financial institutions or offer loans with more flexible terms and conditions. Private lenders may be a good option for borrowers who need to secure financing quickly or have unique borrowing circumstances.
