We’re tossing the clichés: how to get a mortgage in Manitoba the Sunova way

April 12, 2022

Buying a new home and getting a mortgage in Manitoba isn’t all sunshine and roses. It’s one of the most expensive purchases you’ll ever make, and can come along with the stress of bidding wars, losing out on your dream home, and unexpected costs, all while trying to remember one of the 25 things you need to do next. If you’re in a hurry, no worries. Get the mortgage application process started online NOW. 



How are we tossing the mortgage clichés?



We could show you an image of a smiling family in front of the perfect home with the perfect dog in the most perfect lighting you’ve ever seen, and ask you to imagine yourself in that scenario… but, we won’t. Instead, we’ll keep it simple and honest and acknowledge that there’s a greater chance the family (aka you) wants nothing more than to flop on the couch after a long day, the dog might have fleas, and, let’s be honest, if we’re in Manitoba, there’s a good chance you’ll be running from mosquitos in a few months’ time.  


Our promise to members in Manitoba



This is what we promise instead: to help guide you through the realities of buying a home, with the knowledge, help, and support you need to feel informed, empowered, and comfortable from the pre-approval to getting the keys. It won’t be perfect, and we can’t promise you won’t hit some stumbling blocks along the way… but, what we will promise is to be the mortgage partner you can count on, whether it’s your first home or your forever home.


Did you know you can get the mortgage process started online or over the phone?



It’s true!


With our online loan and mortgage application, you can apply for a loan or mortgage from the comfort and convenience of your own home. From start to finish, the process is quick and easy (you’ll even be able to sign the documents remotely!). Once we receive your completed application, one of our friendly lending associates, (along with support from our Help HQ team), will reach out to finalize the details for your loan or mortgage.
