    Too Many Cooks in the Kitchen


    You’ve probably heard the saying “families that eat together, stay together”. Did you know there’s actual evidence behind the words? Family dinners help build healthy relationships, and cooking at home often leads to healthier food choices, too.  Not so fast.  You’ve also probably heard the saying “too many cooks in the kitchen”. Did you know there’s actual evidence behind the words? Look no further than your own home, because cooking with family is a chaotic disaster! Half the ingredients end up on the floor, the other half in the kids’ hair. Someone is crying. Someone is screaming. Someone got stabbed with a fork.  Perhaps it’s time for a bit of a remodel to make the most of your available space. Here’s a few ideas that might help inspire you.

    Start by channelling your inner Marie Kondo without having to do a whole kitchen redesign. Make the most of the space in your cupboards and pantry with extra shelves, a spice rack, and hanging door organizers. There’s even loads of organizational potential beneath your sink!

    While adding lights won’t magically extend your counter, it can give you the impression of a larger, brighter space. Kitchens are a great place to experiment with interesting task and statement lighting to not only make the room functional, but create a focal point for your home. Sunken LED lights can contribute a very clean and modern look as well.

    A well-placed kitchen island will provide additional counter and storage space, and is often worth the penalty of its additional footprint in your home. You can even purchase a rolling cart and move it out of the way when not in use for the best of both worlds.

    New cabinets can revolutionize your kitchen’s look and feel while providing heaps of additional utility. Floor-to-ceiling designs unlock real estate that wasn’t properly utilized by older units. There’s even the potential for integrated appliances to optimize vertical use of space.

    Just like cabinets, new appliances are capable of doing more than looking nice. They are typically energy efficient and might even do a better job of washing your dishes. As well, some manufacturers are releasing smart appliances that can automatically make your coffee in the morning and then send you a text message letting you know that you’ve run out of cream.

    Sometimes it can be difficult to pick just one item on the list. Perhaps you’ve spec’d out fantastic cabinets but they conflict with your existing countertops, and if the countertops have to go so does your backsplash, and so on. At this point you should consider a kitchen renovation as an investment for your family and into your home. Buyers across all age groups rank the kitchen as the most important space in a house and you can expect to recoup a large percentage of renovation costs when you sell your home. Considering all the positive impacts a functional kitchen can bring for your family, this proposition might be the best option.

    Kitchen renovations don’t have to be incredibly expensive. A budget-conscious approach can involve replacing cabinet fronts, counters, and updating your appliances. Alternatively you can opt to replace everything, including the kitchen sink.

    Before beginning a renovation it pays to have a plan, and that plan should include a solid understanding of your budget. Fortunately you have some options and Benson Mortgages can help out.

    Your home is an asset and as it grows in value you can get access to that additional equity and use it to your advantage. A 2nd or 3rd mortgage lets you do this without having to sell your home by borrowing money against that increase. A typical reason people choose this option is to renovate in order to further increase their home’s value and appeal before selling it – that’s why these mortgages are often referred to as “renovation mortgages” or “home improvement loans”.

    Refinancing a mortgage means you pay off your existing loan and replace it with a new one. There are many reasons to refinance a home and also several market signs to look out for, such as a drop in interest rates. The Canadian real estate market has continued to be strong throughout the coronavirus pandemic and interest rates are low. If it has been a while since you paid attention to your mortgage and current rates it is definitely worth your time to consider the options available to you. Feel free to give our team a call and we will show you what’s available!

        The Difference Between a Mortgage Broker and a Private Lender


        At Benson Mortgages, we’re committed to simplifying the mortgage industry. We’ve noticed that many people get overwhelmed by the plethora of options and jargon, so we’re working to break down these barriers. Today, we’re addressing the distinctions between a mortgage lender and a mortgage broker. While these terms are often used interchangeably, there are important differences, and we’re here to clarify why!

        Mortgage Lender 

        A mortgage lender in Ontario is an institution or individual that provides funds to borrowers for purchasing or refinancing properties. These lenders can include banks, credit unions, mortgage corporations, trust companies, and private lenders. They offer a variety of mortgage products and determine the terms and conditions of the loan, including interest rates, repayment schedules, and eligibility criteria.

        Mortgage Broker

        A mortgage broker in Ontario is a licensed professional who acts as an intermediary between borrowers and lenders. They help individuals and businesses secure financing for purchasing or refinancing properties by connecting them with suitable mortgage products from various lenders.  Benson Mortgages has years of experience and the right attitude to get the job done!

        Our mortgage brokerage has access to multiple banks, credit unions and private lenders. Of course, the main advantage to this is that you have your very own price comparison service and you will have a much higher chance of finding the right mortgage for you and your family. 


        After a chat with our team at Benson Mortgages, we’ll have a good grasp of your needs and will go the extra mile to find the perfect mortgage for you.  Good news! We are both a mortgage brokerage and a private lender.  Count on us to steer you clear of any common pitfalls and set you on the right path!

          Can You Get a Home Mortgage If You’re Self-Employed?


          It’s clear that it is easier for you to get a home mortgage if you have a regularly paying job. You will need to get a consistent flow of money to ensure that you can actually pay off the mortgage.  Still, this does not mean that you cannot get a home mortgage just because you are a self-employed individual. You will need to put in an extra bit of effort to show that you can actually pay off your mortgage though.

          Check Your Tax Returns

          ou should have the last couple of tax returns to your name available. Your adjusted gross income should be reviewed on two or more years worth of tax returns. This is to help a lender give you an average in terms of what your typical monthly income will be. This, in turn, gives you a clear idea of what you might spend on your mortgage loan or at least what you can qualify for.

          What Debts Do You Have?

          The debts that you currently hold will play a major role in determining if you can get a mortgage loan. These include debts for existing loans and other dues that you have to pay right now. You should not be spending more than a third of your income on these particular debts.

          Meanwhile, the housing-related debts that you have should not be more than another third of your income. This is important as your lender will typically tell you that you can qualify for a particular loan that is worth a total respective of your debts. Your loan will typically be approved if its monthly value is actually a third of your gross income.

          The process of getting a home mortgage while you are self-employed is certainly going to take more time for you to handle. Still, you will certainly be able to get a great home mortgage no matter what your employment status is like. Just be sure that your income and debts are recorded properly and that you have enough evidence for showing that you’ve got enough support for actually paying off your mortgage as well as you can.

          Special Programs

          At Benson Mortgages, we offer have many unique options for self-employed individuals. By filling out our online application you could be eligible for special programs with certain lenders even if you don’t have a 20% downpayment.
