Jamie David, Sr. Director of Marketing and Mortgages
First National is a major mortgage broker based in Toronto, with a focus on residential mortgages. As of the end of 2022, First National has over $129 billion in mortgages under administration. This includes over 300,000 residential borrowers, and over 5,000 commercial borrowers. Unlike most other lenders, First National does not accept mortgage applications directly. Instead, it relies on its network of mortgage brokers across Canada.
How do First National mortgage rates compare with other lenders?
As one of the country's bigger mortgage lenders, First National is certainly competitive with Canada's other large lenders. If you are keen to get the best mortgage rate possible (which you should be) you should consider comparing rates from multiple lenders, not just from First National. We make this simple by comparing mortgages rates from the big banks, credit unions and smaller lenders across the country, all in one place, and at no cost to you.
First National mortgage products (residential)
First National has a relatively simple product lineup. As it relies on mortgage brokers rather than retail marketing to attract borrowers, it doesn't offer as many bells and whistles. It does offer both fixed and variable rates for various term lengths, as well as some flexible pre-payment options on fixed-rate mortgages. Your mortgage broker will be able to walk you through the full range of mortgage products offered by First National in Canada.
Accessing First National mortgage rates
Unlike many mortgage providers, First National does not take direct applications for residential mortgages. Instead, they rely on their network of mortgage brokers across Canada. If you are interested in one of the mortgages above, speak to an independent mortgage broker near you. Your broker can also give you independent, personalized advice on your new mortgage. As well, brokers can help you find better rates than you might have been able to find on your own, and their services come at no cost to you.
