Looking to make money from mortgages?

We're not a MIC. We're better.

We're different than a Mortgage Investment Corporation (MIC). We open the door for everyday people to invest directly in mortgages and earn high-yield returns as passive, monthly income.

Since 2017, this borrower has been running a small business in Vancouver. When Covid-19 hit, she had to close temporarily, and it was tough because she wasn't making any money but still had to pay bills. Even though she faced a lot of debt, she didn't give up. She worked hard to reopen her business after the lockdown and started paying off what she owed. But the high interest rates on her loans were making it difficult. Her plan is to first pay off all her debts, so she doesn't have to worry about high interest anymore. Then, she wants to put money back into her business to make it grow. She has good credit history and lots of equity in the property, so we gave her a one year loan to give her time to get her business back to maximum revenue. By the end of the year, she hopes to either get a better loan from a bank or move to a smaller place without a mortgage.

Our borrowers attempted a business venture two years ago, which unfortunately did not succeed, resulting in accumulated debt. They have since decided to close the business and are now focused on settling their financial obligations. Borrower 1 is currently employed in the food service industry while looking for work in his field. Borrower 2 is on maternity leave but will return to her previous job at a dental office within a year. Their credit score is lower, but only due to credit utilization, they have always paid their debts on time. Once the debts are paid off from this loan, the credit score should improve considerably. Upon the borrower's return to full-time employment in his previous field, at a higher pay, they anticipate securing a new loan from a traditional financial institution to settle our loan. We are offering them a one-year loan term with deferred payments, providing them with the necessary time to transition into more stable employment and secure refinancing.

Owner Profile
Our borrowers purchased a new build two years ago, but as the possession date approached, their circumstances changed. Their elderly parents required care, prompting the borrowers to move in with them. They sold their primary residence in March to facilitate this move. With rising interest rates, the cost of the new home became less appealing. Additionally, Borrower 2 was off work due to an illness and wasn't back full-time by the closing date, making it impossible to qualify for a bank mortgage. To avoid losing their down payment and to benefit from the increased equity since their original purchase, they opted for an interim loan. This loan was secured against this new property and their existing rental property, with three months' payments held back. Their plan is to close on the new build, convert it to a rental property, and then either refinance once Borrower 2 returns to full-time work or sell it within the three-month term. This strategy allows the borrowers to preserve their large deposit and capitalize on the property's appreciated value.

Our borrower faced an unexpected extension of her maternity leave due to health reasons, resulting in some accrued debt from the extra unpaid time off. Now back to work full-time, she and her partner are focused on consolidating their debt to improve their credit and qualify for a full refinance within the next year. Both borrowers are employed at the bank and have maintained a perfect payment history. Their goal is to streamline their finances and boost their credit score, ensuring a smooth path to refinancing in the near future. We provided them with a consolidation loan, offering a practical solution to manage their debt effectively. This move allows them to stabilize their financial situation, reduce their debt load, and enhance their credit profile, making them strong candidates for refinancing down the line.

Our borrowers were looking to expand their investment portfolio, so they purchased a condominium with intentions to utilize it as a rental property. They currently co-own a single-family home, which is also a rental, because they are personally renting an apartment in Canmore to be closer to their new business. Because they recently purchased a business in Canmore, they did not have the required documents to qualify for traditional bank financing right away. We offered the borrowers a loan that blankets both the new condo purchase and their existing single family home, giving us a loan-to-value ratio of under 60%. The business was already profitable prior to their ownership, and this trend has continued since their acquisition. The restaurant, a well-established dining destination in the area, further bolsters their financial prospects, instilling confidence in their ability to secure financing within the year. With excellent credit, the borrowers are well-positioned to qualify for financing with an alternative lender before the end of the term of their loan.

Our borrower sought a modest second mortgage to alleviate debts incurred while supporting her grandson's pursuit of a hockey career at a prestigious US college. While managing consumer debt, she chose to prioritize timely bill payments over property taxes for the past two years, opting to maintain financial stability. Retired with pensions and government benefits, she initially considered refinancing into a single mortgage. However, recognizing the cost-effectiveness of her existing low-rate first mortgage, she opted for a six-month second mortgage, facilitating a timely transition to downsizing her current residence. With plans to sell and downsize within this timeframe, she aims for a smoother financial transition. We provided a conservative second mortgage at less than 50% loan-to-value ratio, with held back payments, ensuring minimal stress during this period of change. Her financial metrics remain favorable, with consistent payment history and manageable ratios. Despite an average credit score attributed to utilization rather than payment history, she has ample resources to clear outstanding debts and secure a deposit for her next home.

Our borrowers recently completed renovations on their home, but encountered an unexpected budget overrun. To cover the additional costs, they used credit cards, accumulating about $40,000 in high-interest debt. With their existing first mortgage not due for renewal for another year, they faced a large penalty if they tried to refinance now. With interest rates potentially dropping by next year, they believed that waiting for a full refinance would be more beneficial for them in the long run. We offered the borrowers a small second mortgage in order to pay off the high rate credit cards with a one year term. Their credit is excellent and our loan-to-value is under 65%. They have good income and can easily manage this new loan until they can refinance their mortgages next year when the 1st mortgage comes up for renewal.

The borrower has been in construction for over 19 years. His mother got sick and he had to slow down work in order to care for her. She recently passed away and he decided it was time to retire, down size and be mortgage free. He has already done a few renovations on his home and wants to do a few more minor home improvements to ready his home for sale. His plan is to start searching for the right home, and once he finds it, list and sell his current home. He was looking for a two year term to give him plenty of time to find the right property. He has excellent credit and our loan to value is under 30%. We held back 2 years payments so he doesn't have to worry about making payments on the new loan.

Splashing around a MIC pool? Instead, choose a direct lane.

What is a MIC?

A Mortgage Investment Corporation (MIC) pools capital from investors to lend to property owners, focusing on residential and commercial mortgages. You own a share in this pool and collect dividend returns (usually quarterly) that can change based on the corporation's overall performance and or be diluted by management and admin fees.

We offer a more directed investment approach.

Morcado Trust allows you to invest directly in multiple mortgages of your choosing and receive attractive returns in the form of passive monthly income.

  • The mortgage selection offered is curated through a stringent process.
  • You have access to fully funded, vetted, and managed high-yield mortgages.
  • You benefit from direct access to high-yield mortgage interest rate income.
  • We provide important details to help you choose based on your risk tolerance and financial goals.

An investment platform like no other.

Our mortgage investment platform and business model allow you to become the 'lender,' taking over an amount of a borrower's mortgage loan to claim a percentage of the interest payment as your return on your investment. In other words, you make bank, like a bank.

We focus on simplifying your investment process by handling mortgage origination, underwriting, and administration. We take care of the behind-the-mortgage details while you collect high-yield returns.

How are we an alternative to MICs?

In the landscape of real estate investment, MICs have long been a popular choice for those looking to delve into mortgage lending.

However, Morcado brings you an innovative approach and a fresh alternative for investing in Canadian real estate.

Key benefits of Morcado's mortgage investment platform:

  • Higher returns. Based directly on high-yield mortgages you select rather than 'pooled' rates based on corporate performance.
  • Net return rates. The rates you select are the rates you get.
  • Passive, monthly income. Return amounts are typically set for the duration of the mortgage and deposited into your account of choice.
  • Select your mortgages for investment. A direct investment approach allows you better control to satisfy your risk-reward preference.
  • Transparency. Know exactly where your money goes and what you'll receive in return.
  • Build your mortgage portfolio. Investing across multiple borrowers and properties offers reduced risk and balanced returns.
