Borrowing in the US with RBC MortgageCross-Border Specialist

Canadians will find getting a mortgage in the U.S. to be very different from the process in Canada.

Learning about the differences beforehand will help your home buying go more smoothly.

With today’s low interest rates and wide selection of U.S. properties available, this is an excellent time to consider purchasing real estate in the United States, and a U.S. mortgage1 can give you significant benefits, including:

  • No pre-payment penalties. You can repay your mortgage at any time you like.
  • Mortgage interest may be deductible against taxes in the U.S.2
  • Mortgages are amortized over 30 years, longer than typical Canadian mortgages, which will reduce your monthly payment.

With the benefits in mind, it’s also important to consider these major differences between U.S. and Canadian mortgages:

  • Timing
  • U.S Mortgage Application
  • Documentation You Provide
  • Down Payment
  • Costs
  • Insurance
  • Mortgage Interest
  • Documentation You’ll Receive
